DYI

Today's craft for the kiddos was really for me, but don't tell them! {shhhh!}  Of course, the kids loved it and had a blast coming up with their design for their t-shirts.     We took colored cotton t-shirts that you can find at your local craft store or at Wal-Mart.  I actually got mine in the … [Read more...]
