It's the first of the month, and time again to craft with us. I know we could probably do a craft post more frequently, but everyone has craft ideas, and Pinterest is full of them. When Babysitters In a Pinch posts a craft; we've done it, tested it, and will usually share pics that will never, ever look perfect because we are really, truly, crafting with kids; not doing it for THEM.
