How to create a nice low centrepiece for the Easter table that has some staying power? Build a nest from driftwood. Where do you find real driftwood in the early spring in Toronto? You don’t! I picked a whole bunch at the cottage last summer and this hoard just satisfied my Easter craft craving.

Okay, I’ll admit I’m one of those people that doesn’t do Valentine’s Day crafts – I’m into the cinnamon hearts for sure, but stockpiling red and pink paper for the day has never been on my mind. Where does one find the time? The space for the supplies? That was my excuse – until now. Contemporary, simple, and not at all frilly, these are my kinds of Valentines – graphic, fun, and I love how they use up scraps and little bits I have hanging around. Oh, and did I mention they are quick? If you haven’t already made plans for next weekend, why not spend a “crafternoon” making Valentines? Whether you host a Valentine’s craft date, or set up an independent activity for your kids, here are some easy little projects you can quickly craft up.

I’ve been slacking a little bit when it comes to Valentine’s Day décor. Every year since my eldest was born, my mom has come over and decorated my house. Seriously. So this year, I wanted to try something a little fun for the boys that they could help create too. I’m just hoping it will last until the end of the month…I’ve caught all three “boys” with their hands in the candy jar tonight alone!
