Each month the Frugal Family Linky cohosts rotate duties on who gets to share the most popular posts from the previous month, and it’s my turn. So if you’re visiting from another site, welcome!
If we haven’t met before, my name is Sarah and I live in Arkansas with my husband and almost six-year-old daughter (referred to around here as “the girl”). I blog here at Our Daily Craft about crafting with and for kids, creativity for moms and other busy people and creating the life you’ve always wanted. I also write about knitting for About.com and CraftGossip.com, write about local food news at NWA Eats and have written three knitting books. Whew!
Our favorite post of the month was New House New Home’s DIY Door Hanger with Geraniums. Congratulations!

This one is listed above, but I want to make sure you don’t miss the mini light table DIY from A Little Pinch of Perfect. Seriously, you’re going to wonder how you never thought of that. So cute, and you can take it anywhere.
The girl is super into space right now, so I also wanted to point out the relative size of planets printables from Research Parent. These are great for learning the names and the order of the planets as well as the fact that planets come in many different sizes.
And we’re all about recycling art materials here at the White House, so I love these ideas for recycled crafts from HEN Family (actually a guest post by Moms and Crafters). Tiny banjos made out of lids! Adorable.
