Free Patterns: 5 Quick Knits to Make in Time for Easter Baskets


I made this little chick for my niece when she was less than a year old. She’s 5 now and still plays with it! The pattern is from “Just Crafty Enough” Kat and is free for you to make: Free Pattern: Easter Peeps.

Happy Birthday Lego – My favorite toy and gift to give.


Apparently yesterday was not only National S’more’s Day but also Lego’s birthday. I start giving my nieces and nephews Lego (Duplo) at about age 2. And a small Lego kit is included in every Christmas socking (Santa is smart that way). Lego’s store in Downtown Disney was recently remodeled. Check out the awesome sculptures inside, outside, and around the store. All made from the standard-size bricks.
