Hi everyone! I’m Mandy Bush and I am the executive assistant for Cardinal Rule Press (Maria’s publishing company). I am a mother of 2 (son and daughter) and I will be blogging on Be the Difference and will be recapping some valuable tips from Empowering Kids With Character – The Show!

Creativity Trays - mariadismondy.com

Maria shared with us, on July 23, how she uses “creativity trays” in her home for their crafting.You can watch the full video here.

Maria uses these trays to help keep it a little bit cleaner and keep things organized. There are trays at Target for $3 in the Dollar Spot (or you can purchase a set of 6 from Amazon). These trays are perfect for pearler bead crafts, glitter crafts, or anything where you need a little extra help keeping everything contained. Another advantage is that you can always stack the trays (you’ll have to cross them slightly) to store them and not mess up your current project!

Maria also shared some Christmas in July homemade gifts they made – so cute and a great idea to get a head start on the holiday gifts (be sure to check out the comments on the video for her ideas)!
