Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom


Girl's Sweater Dress Tutorial (upcycle an old sweater into a pretty new dress)

Valentine's day is just around the corner and I wanted to get something new made for my missy.  I had this hot pink quilted knit in my stash- bought it in the fall and I have been itching to use it.  My original intention was to make some sort of jacket with the fabric, but Spring will be here soon (along with warmer temps) and I probably will not get to a jacket this year.

So the next best thing?  A pretty little dress for her Valentine's Day party!

21 Soup Recipes to help get you through the Winter

We had a brief glimpse of spring last weekend!  It was so nice- sunny with temperatures in the 60's and 70's.  Mother Nature was just giving us a little tease, and the cold winter weather has settled in for a few more weeks.

I don't like to run the heater too much during the day, and soup (plus other warm beverages) can be an awesomely wonderful way to warm up!  To keep you warm and full, I'm sharing a round-up of  my favorite Warm and Hearty Soup Recipes to get you through Winter.  Hope you find a few new recipes to enjoy!
