Simple Projects

Simple projects that take only a few minutes but make a huge difference.

2 Minute Project: Valentine Wreath

As a currently “single” person I have a tendency to join with the rest of the throng of singles in a silent protest of Valentines Day. But as a kid I loved it! I loved decorating my Valentines Day box each year and I loved...

2 Minute Valentines Project: (Foolproof) Frosting

While growing up, Robear was diligent at trying to make sure that we all learned how to cook. It is not her fault if her training did not completely stick with me. I definitely know how to appreciate good food, but I am not always the...
