mer_mag The one advantage of living out of boxes is that you have plea toy to craft with! This cardboard tree with paper punch trimmings was a favorite from last year. (crossing my fingers we hear about our short sale soon and that we have a home by Christmas!) #mermagchristmas 2d

mer_mag This little one has started a full scale revolution against all things sleep related. Which is lots if fun now that she can climb out of her crib. good thing she looks like an angel 😇 4d
  •   radseams I'm with wendyanna, when I changed my attitude of being annoyed that my kids won't sleep, to feeling lucky that they want to be with me and want to cuddle. Night time isn't as bad. Yes, some days I'm so tired from interrupted sleep, but I got to cuddle with my kids and help them. I'm hoping that it's teaching them that I will always try to be there to help them, no matter what the problem is. 4d
  •   livefreemiranda Boy do I remember that. Oh wait...my three and a half year old is still in that stage. Good luck mama! (And yes, faces help!!) 4d
  •   mer_mag Super sweet Amy @radseams 4d
  •   mrsnomi oh no! good luck mama!! 4d
  •   wendyanna I adore connecting with mamma's here on Instagram! Such a wonderful community @mer_mag I follow you because I adore your commitment. Thank you for the creativity and outlook you bring to our lives!! Xoxoxo 4d

mer_mag Made some cardboard gingerbread men with this little St. Nick believer. He's sooo fun to craft with. He's hilarious and his characters truly become his comrades. Template and instux on the blog today - oh and we LOVE our new @letsplayground mat (so easy wipe clean!). oh and his Santa now sleeps next to him each night. #themagicisstillalive #mermagchristmas 7d
  •   restylesource Adorable! 6d
  •   letsplayground Ah! Gorgeous, Merrillee. So much thanks! We adore you. xoxox 6d
  •   the_cool_heads 😎 6d
  •   redlicorice I'm soooo excited about this idea! My four year old LOVES his gingerbread man book and often asks to make gingerbread men, but I'm no baker and food restrictions prevent us from getting anything store bought. I feel sad and bad and guilty when he begs for little men to decorate. So your idea is pure inspiration for me!!! Thanks for sharing your ideas! 6d
  •   mer_mag Oh I love this story @redlicorice! So sweet. Can't wait to see the little guys he makes out if cardboard. 6d
  •   magnoliamooon @hannahmcintosh make these with penny?! 😬 6d

mer_mag "Snippets and bits of tape, dollops and dabs of glue...globbed onto cartons, containers and cardboard was all it took for Matilda to transform yesterday's boring box into tomorrow's serendipitous space girl." #littlebitsbymer Just sharing another custom portrait story order! Matilda is truly a little scavenger and crafter - a girl after my own heart! If you're interested in your own custom portrait and little bit story line as well I still have time for one or two more orders before the holidays!! IF you email me quick at: merrileeliddiard at hotmail dot com. Otherwise I'm open for orders for the new year!! 1w

mer_mag So we've been in the process of purchasing a short sale home (which I've learned is anything BUT a short process). It's been a bit of a juggle trying to start the Christmas season without a home of our own yet (we're living with my in-laws for the interim) but at least we can bring out our cardboard Christmas house and decorate that with all our fun paper downloads! You can find these in my shop etsy.com/shop/tuesdaymourning #mermag #mermagchristmas I can't wait to share more pics of our little fixer upper when we can finally move in!!! 2w
  •   courtcarlson1 So cute!! @hoopla_earrings love this idea! 2w
  •   brooke_hellewell Ha! Our short sale (which we were living in at the time..) too 11 months to be final! CRAZY! and so stressful, but worth it in the end!! Hoping it works out for you guys! 2w
  •   shopsweetlulu That house!! 2w
  •   mer_mag Wow! @brooke_hellewell we've been told we should know in a week but then again every time were told a deadline it seems to get pushed back even more. Here's crossing our fingers it all works out! 2w
  •   rachelcope76 Adorable! I hope you get to move in sooner than later!!! 2w
  •   eltonjuliable So cute! I luv luv it! 1w
  •   mandycruze Love this! Same thing happen to us with or house. I think it took between 6 and 9 months of saying they should hear back from the bank anytime. But it was worth the wait for the good deal. 1w

mer_mag I've got a Thanksgiving DIY craft round up on the blog today. Great ideas to keep those little hands busy while the real turkey is cooking. This paper puppet turkey, on the other hand, was inspired by my paper puppets in my book Playful. Gobble gobble. And if you're local tune into @studio5ksl right now to see me share a few of these projects and Thanksgiving craft table tips. (It will also be on their website tomorrow). #mermag #playfultoysandcrafts #thanksgiving 3w

mer_mag "Plum and Piper were particularly pleasant friends who always picked one another first for parcheesi, pancake breakfasts, paragliding and pillow fights. Plum perhaps enjoyed pots of potatoes a touch less than Piper but their mutual affection for pumpkin pie was not to be questioned." #littlebitsbymer Help me decide what Plum and Piper do NOT like? Tag a friend to play along!! #tellthetalewithmer 3w
