Kick-Off Friday

Erica and I don’t talk much about our day jobs; but Erica manages employer relations for a university and I work as an engineer. Unfortunately crafting, decorating and shopping don’t provide us a living {wouldn’t that be fun, though? When I grow up I want to be a professional shopper, ha!!}.
Through the university where Erica works, she has some great opportunities to grow as an individual and in her career; but these activities are seriously time-consuming. So, just like in our Making Simple Goals series, she’s got to prioritize.

So, I’ll be bringing you Kick-Off Friday; and I hope that I can do her round-ups justice 🙂

Today’s round-up is featuring crafts that you can complete with your kids over this long holiday weekend. Plus, most of these projects can be completed with items that you have on hand!
