New and Different

Oh Bloggiverse, how things have changed since my last post. We are now a family of 7, plus two cats and a dog. Two of my beautiful children have been diagnosed on the Autism spectrum, and I am now a full-time student at Weber State University (Go 'Cats!) studying psychology and neuroscience. Life has changed quite a bit, but I'm still crafty! As I start blogging again I'll still be sharing recipes and crafts, but I am also going to focus on life as an autism mom and student. I can't wait to continue my journey with you. Stay tuned for more!

Just a Little Update

It has been a while since I've actually posted to the blog, so I thought I would catch everyone up while my kids play with sticky hands.

It has been a fortunate, and busy year in the Moon household. We bought our first house, my husband graduated college, we adopted 2 rescue cats, and 3 parakeets, and are having BABY #5!! That's right...another little boy to make messes and memories with. I've also been busy volunteering at the kids' school, and helping out the local humane society. You can see why posts have been scarce-though I've never stopped crafting or painting.

Hopefully I will have a few fun activities and printables to share with you in the coming weeks. Summer is my favorite time of year because I get to spend extra time with my munchkins, and that means more arts and crafts, and lots of fun.

Stay crafty!

Make Believe You're Brave Printable

My daughter has suffered from anxiety since she was little. She's a happy, bright, artistic child, but she is often bogged down by fear and worry. I had similar anxiety as a child, but I had a secret weapon: The King and I. Specifically, "Whistle a Happy Tune." If you've never heard it check out the video below. One of my favorite lines is "Make believe you're brave, and the trick will take you far. You may be as brave as you make believe you are."
I played this song for Samantha and she loved it. As an extra reminder I made a printable to hang in her room. To print, just open the image, and right click and save.

I love this song, and it is definitely something to live by. What makes you feel brave?

Doctor Who Inspired Play Signs

Hello Crafty Confessors and fellow Whovians! Today I'm posting a free Doctor Who inspired printable to let the neighborhood kids know when your little Whovians can and cannot play. This is especially useful on days when you're all still in your pajamas binge watching Netflix. Don't give me look. You know you've been there.

Download the door sign or click and save the image. Print onto sturdy cardstock, fold along the dotted line, and glue together. I used my paper trimmer to trim the sides and bottom. You can place the sign in your window, or add some ribbon and hang from your doorknob.

50 days until the series 9 premier!

"Hang" in there, and check out my Countdown to Doctor Who printable.

I do not own any part of Doctor Who, BBC, or anything even remotely affiliated. I'm just a rabid fan girl. Thank you.
