The Little Craft Box. I'm going to make this tambourine with Ash. He loves to make music on his drums so I think this will be a huge hit! I think this is the type of project that all preschoolers would really enjoy! I can't wait to see what else The Little Craft Box has in store!

no knead bread on Mother Earth News. I have to say it is divine! It takes a little time to let the dough rise (12-18 hrs.) but mostly you just mix stuff up and let the dough do the work. I will definitely make this yummy bread again! You should make it, too! Happy bread making!!

During our visit Aunt Barbie took us to this adorable little town, Folsom, so we could go to all the shops. They had the coolest little shops with painted furniture, vintage items, adorable crafty items, etc. I seriously wanted to move into them and call them home. While out and about we found this super cool vintage typewriter and had to pick it up for our cousin Stephanie. She loved it! Her crush on vintage typewriters is inspiring me! I can't wait to see what I do with all of this inspiration!
*The photo above is of the typewriter we found for her. She did some magically cool thing to the photo. Isn't it vintagy fun!?!

Refreshed Decor. They take all of those great pieces with such potential that you see around the junk shops and turn them into fabulous! They are in Arizona so if you're local you could swing by and pick up one of their pieces. If not you can become a stalker of their site and use it for inspiration like me.

canvas bags *I got mine at Michaels they came in a pack of 3. Now the grown-ups have a bag, too. Sadly, my husband can tell you how grumpy I get, too.
cars & trucks with cool treads
paper to put in the bag to protect from bleeding paint
*Insider tip: take the cars for a painted test drive before you go for the real thing. Not all treads turn out as cool as you may think. Sometimes there is one part that sticks out father than the rest so you could just get a set of lines instead of tire tread.
3. Drive away....
card stock *You could use construction paper, but I think it will be a little too flimsy.
adhesive dots *You could just glue them on but Gray likes how they make the ninjas pop out from the paper.
ninja cut outs
individually wrapped Life Savers
