In a few days, I’ll be posting about an amazing blogger’s night out that took place at Gardner Village a few weeks ago.  One of my favorite stores at the village (aren’t they all?) is Pine Needles where you can find more fun fabric then you’ll know how to handle.  I went ahead and busted […]

Spinning Sucker from Big Lots

I found this idea right AFTER Easter last year…of course!  So I’ve waited a whole year to do it and I can’t wait to see the expression on my 3 (almost 4!) year old’s face when she sees the magical transformation of these jelly beans.  If you own a silhouette, this is literally a 5 […]

St. Patrick’s Day Treat and Printable – Leprechaun Munch

I have to say, this treat turned out so tasty.  It was a total experiment and we loved the result–the combination of mint and chocolate with a little salty crunch was just right.  Pretty much all of our supplies came from one of our favorite local kitchen stores, Orson Gygi.  You can order supplies from […]

Here’s how we made him: Hair:  Caramel and miniature chocolate chips.  Use good caramel like the one sold here (great tips for carameled […]

Pot of Gold for St. Patrick’s

Here’s a quick and fun little idea I did for my hubs this year to celebrate St. Patrick’s day.  (I don’t even think he knows it’s a holiday today ) The dollar store has these little salsa tubs that are PERFECT for little pots-o-gold or cauldrons (for Halloween).  They come in a two-pack so they […]

Turtle Pretzel Goodness

I wasn’t really intending to do this as a post, but since my goal is to post every other weekday and I have nothing else ready (why did I begin during the month of December?), I figured might as well.  I was planning on making these pretzel treats that I saw my friend making a […]
