Featured Guest: In Between Laundry

Hi! I'm Erin from

and I'm just about as pleased as punch to visit with you girls today!


That's me with my husband and our two stinks-- 3-1/2 and 7 months.

is all about

do-able crafts, great recipes,

ideas, and kid stuff,
topped off with a healthy dose of our

Ca-Razy home

. We are gutting this joint, I tell you.

Here are a few of my recent projects.

Basically, I'd do a back flip if you stopped by.

Big hugs to Tammy for
asking me to guest blog today!


I'd been wanting to do this project for a while now, so here goes...

your plainy-Janey socks...


one-of-a-kind no-slip


1. Place cardboard strips in your socks and paint designs on the bottom using
Puffy Paint.

2. Let them dry according to package instructions (I left mine overnight).


How cute are these all rolled up like rosettes for a gift?

Ooh-- throw in a great foot
(I have several recipes here) and your Valentine will kiss your
! Truth.

Some other ideas I came up with (but haven't yet tried) are:

stenciling the recipient's name,
writing the alphabet and
drawing butterflies or animal paw-prints.

I am in LOVE with this idea! My kids need new slippers - what a great gift for them to find when they wake up on Valentine's Day! THANKS for hosting this post!

This would be a great way to make those slippery kiddo socks not so slippery! Thanks for the great idea!!

Oh, that is such a cute idea, and I love that you can personalize it for the person wearing the socks! Erin, you are always full of brilliant ideas! : )

This is a great idea! I have some puffy paint that I might have to try this with.

I would love to have you link this to my link party.
