Fun With Cloud Dough to "Fill up my kids' tanks"
Even though I wrote a book on keeping kids busy , sometimes I just plain forget that kids are not like dogs.  They cannot just find ways to amuse themselves while I'm busy running the house.  I mean really, why can't they just go lay down on the floor while...

The story of a Mom, dedicated to looking for the fun in life!
Introduction
We've got crafts.  We've got laughs.  We've got fights.  I'm saving my sanity, one project at at time!  And my crafts are easy because I'm not creative by nature so I keep it simple and cheap.  And fun of course!!
