Let’s build a fort!

Thank you Pop Secret for sponsoring today’s post.

What do you do when it’s cold and raining outside?  You build a fort!

DIY Table Fort

Connor is obsessed with building forts and we’ve discovered the easiest way to build one.  All you need to do is place a king size sheet over your table and you’ve got a great fort.

Then you gather some blankets, pillows, stuffed animals and a few of your favorite toys.  Now you’re ready to have some fun in your table fort

Pop Secret Popcorn

And don’t forget to pop some Pop Secret Microwave Popcorn.  It definitely makes it super cool that you get to eat under the table.

Since we’re talking about building forts, I found some awesome ideas on Pinterest that will make building them even better.

DIY Journal

It’s time for another round of Craft Lightning!  Which means I’ve got a craft project that can be done in 15 minutes or less.

DIY Journal


The theme for this round is Dr. Seuss and since Connor loves journals, I made him a few journals using Dr. Seuss fabric.


  • fabric
  • cardstock (1 piece for each journal)
  • blank paper
  • twine
  • fusible interfacing
  • iron
  • scissor

Step 1:  Iron a piece of interfacing to your piece of cardstock.  Trim around edges of cardstock and discard extra interfacing.

Step 2:  Iron fabric to cardstock.  Trim and remove extra fabric.  Fold cardstock in half.

Step 3:  Fold blank paper in half and insert inside cardstock.

Step 4:  tie twin around fold of journal and tie with a knot.

That’s it!  Now you have a cute DIY journal.
