CELEBRATIONS: Crepe Paper & Feather Easter Eggs


Oh my goodness, it’s April 1st. April Fools Day. I don’t have a fun April Fools post to share with you but I am slipping in just under the wire an Easter Egg craft. It just wouldn’t seem right if I didn’t share an egg project this year.

CELEBRATIONS: A Touch of Fall from my Home



A touch of fall from my home - fall vignettes via homework | carolynshomework.com


These are just some snippets of fall from some of my projects or the styling for some of my projects. I love fall and when I went through my photos recently, I put together some of my favorite. Not everyday has to include a complicated craft or diy project to keep me inspired. Sometimes it’s something as simple as some peppercorns or moss.

CELEBRATIONS: Great Halloween Ideas from Dollar Store Items



I love the Dollar Store. Any dollar store; the 99 cent store, 99 cent plus, the dollar store, dollar tree or any good clearance aisle. These stores are especially great during the holidays. And Halloween brings out the best in dollar decorating. Because who wants to spend a lot of money on Halloween décor. I mean it’s fun but it’s not going to stay up for very long. I’ve rounded up some of the very best dollar store Halloween ideas. These bloggers have really raised the bar with their spooky fun.

CELEBRATIONS: Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells

Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells via homework - carolynshomework (7)

Hello friends! Wedding season is here and I have an easy wedding idea that is budget friendly but on-trend. Wedding Birdseed to toss at the bride and groom. Tossing rice at newlyweds comes from an ancient tradition. It symbolized abundance and fertility. In recent years it was rumored that the rice left on the ground was harmful to birds. I’ve heard that this isn’t true but birdseed has become a popular replacement and I’m sure it’s much better for the birds and critters that clean up our mess.
