You might say I am luminary crazy. I have always loved this type of craft, and probably always will. There is something about these lights that are so pretty when lit at night. They make special events and parties that much more beautiful.

This luminary has got to be the easiest luminary ever! I mean it. All you have to do is cut out your favorite shapes out of black card stock and glue the shapes to the middle of the paper. Glue the ends together, and place over a puck light. Easy peasy!

Plastic trash is a serious problem. It is a fact. Every year more plastic bottles are manufactured than recycled, and it takes 5 to 6 decades for most plastic bottles to decompose. Decomposition for some types of plastic takes  much, much longer.

Why not help the planet and have some fun while you are at it. Recycle plastic bottles into cute party  lights. It isn't very hard and can be made in less than an hour.

The season is coming up for graduation parties and open houses. For those of us that really enjoyed being Moms it is bittersweet. Although we are proud that our children are achieving these milestones in their lives, it also marks the time that they no longer will be us on a daily basis.

College is just around the corner, and the start of our children's independent lives is a reality we Moms have to adjust to. Can I say empty nest syndrome?
