30 Random Acts Of Kindness To Do With Your Kids

After two years of blogging, I am about to share with you the absolute best project I have ever done with my children.  It is not a craft, or a recipe, but an initiative.  Over the last year my kids and I have gone out into the world and done 30 random acts of kindness together.  Our acts of kindness were based on what is important to our family, and the experience was, by far, one of the most life changing projects we ever done together.  Not only was it about teaching my kids the importance of being kind to others, but I hope they walked away with a life lesson that they will never...

Happy New Year – Welcome to 2013

Happy New Year to you all!  I certainly hope that each and everyone of you had a safe and happy holiday season!  I thoroughly enjoyed my break from blogland and dove into my family with every ounce of my being.  Our break began with 2 snow days from school before winter break was supposed to start and inches and inches of fluffy white snow!  I found myself hunkered in with my kids enjoying nothing more than staying in my jammies, playing games, drinking hot cocoa, and forgetting about everything but them.  It was pure magic each and every day as we anticipated and enjoyed one family...

A Spotted Pony – What’s Behind The Name

My blog is a year old today!  To celebrate, I want to share the story of how I named A Spotted Pony.  I would like to thank each and every one of you who have stopped by over the last year and for your kind comments, your support and following.  Can a single spotted horse change your life?  The answer in an unequivocal, absolutely YES in my book! If you know me personally you know exactly why my blog is named A Spotted Pony, but if not, you might wonder.  Seems like a strange name for a blog about crafts, home decor and family activities, doesn’t it?   So, to give you a little...
