I am a Latina mom & creator helping parents get in touch w their crafty side! Aside from crafting and DIY ideas, I love sharing about play based learning and motherhood antics. Crafting with crazy was born from my love of crafting and my children, but my main motivator was my son, Brighton. Brighton had a physical development delay and has a speech delay. I wanted to find fun and creative ways to apply the advice we received from his therapists so I started crafting. Like crazy. My husband started calling my crafting sessions, “crafting with crazy” and now here we are.

👯 Like & Comment “Dance” and I’ll send you direct links for places where you can donate dance costumes! 🩰 Sissy just had her first dance recital, and while her costume would be perfect for pretend play, it’s just a bit too snug. I thought about repurposing it, but I didn’t want to cut it. 💃 Not all children have access to dance costumes, and this is an easy way to give back to the dance community. 💖 Everyone deserves a chance to dance! #dancemoms #njmom #dancecostume #dancerecital #motherhoodjourney Dance costume donation, motherhood and giving back, kid’s dance recital, sustainable parenting tips, dance community support, dance education access, motherhood and social responsibility What’s the best thing about kids’ dance recitals?

Like & comment WATER to get a list of everything you’ll need to make this DIY water fountain. Grab your little one and make this easy and stunning solar-powered water fountain using planters, soil, and flowers. I did end up removing the rocks so the fountain would sit lower in the top planter. Otherwise you’ll need to keep refilling the water because of the wind.

❤️ “When you are a parent you have a new chance to grow.” I’ve been having a hard time showing up in this space consistently. For many reasons. My kids have needed me in different and sometimes new ways. We haven’t been in as much of a creative mode lately, choosing to enjoy more of the outdoors instead. Sometimes they don’t want to be filmed or photographed and I respect their boundaries. Sometimes other responsibilities are just too overwhelming. As a parent, it’s essential to find balance, protect my mental well being, and break free from generational trauma patterns. Family comes first, the algorithm is always going to change and if IG is going to penalize me for being a parent, then so be it. Follow along and join me in navigating the ups and downs of parenting, creativity, and self-care! #Parentingjourney #familyfirst #selfcare #authenticityoverperfection #motherhood #consciousparenting

🌈 Sissy has been curating her own looks for as long as I can remember. She is all about self-expression and making a statement. Some may ask why I let her go out like this but this is her time to explore her creativity and have fun with fashion. I know what it’s like to have your creativity stifled and I will not stifle her sparkle. If you’re a mom who can relate, hit that ❤️ #momtruths #selfexpression #confidentkids #consciousparenting #momlife #raisingcreativekids #creativityunleashed

Aquafaba is an easy and fast sensory play material that your kids are sure to love. I was opening a can of chickpeas to make some hummus when I heard the kids arguing. It was like I was meant to make aquafaba in that moment. 😆 To make aquafaba all you need is a can of chickpeas and a hand or stand mixer. Mix at the highest speed for about 3 minutes when you have a good amount of stiff peaks. Feel free to add food coloring! 🌈 Tag a friend who could use an easy way to keep their kids busy! #sensoryplay #kidscrafts #sensoryplayideas #kidsactivitiesathome #kidsactivities Have you made aquafaba before?
