.:Feature Friday - Oopsey Daisy:.

Go here for the Lil Luna giveaway!

I am super excited that Sumo let me take over her beautiful blog today. I have always felt a connection to Sumo because we were both first grade teachers! I will do my best to fill her gigantic and adorable shoes today.

I am Alison, the crazy lady behind Oopsey Daisy. Once upon a time, I was a first grade teacher. Now I am a stay-at-home Mom, and I love to make things for the people I love. This is where I find my inspiration:

I am lucky to be married to a wonderful man who lets me go craft-crazy! And my Little Man inspires a lot of creativity. He keeps me insanely busy so I relish any time he's sleeping. Naptime and bedtime are craft time at my house.

I make lots of messes, pull out lots of stitches, and "Oopsey Daisy" is the name of my game! Here is just a snippet of what you might find on my blog:

Quiet book ideas like this Mr. Potato Head:

Delicious and festive recipes like these red, white, and blue strawberries (These could be a fun last-minute 24th of July treat!):

Fun learning activities for kids, like this Old McDonald barn and animals:

EASY sewing projects like this denim ruffled table runner:

Fun wood projects like these flag firecrackers I made for the Fourth:

Free printable activities like this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom file folder game:

Fun birthday party ideas like this Cowboy Birthday Party:

Did you enjoy your own personal tour? I hope so! Oh man, that was fun! Sumo, thanks so much for letting me skip over to your blog for a day. I hope you will join me for more Oopsey Daisy fun. Every day is an adventure! Come by and say hello!
