My nine-year-old is always looking for fun crafts to do with her friends. So, a few weeks ago we planned out these cute kawaii candy containers and last week she called a few friends over to make them with her. Planning out projects is one of her favorite things to do.

Easter Egg Buddies Tutorial

Easter is right around the corner and is my favorite holiday of all! I’m not sure what it is that I love the most about Easter. Maybe it’s the memories of getting new shoes, dresses, and Easter bonnets as a kid. I do love to dress up. Or perhaps it’s the Mini Cadbury Eggs and Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs I get to consume this time of year and the fact that the weather is starting to change and we can go outside again without freezing to death. Whatever it is, I just find this time of year to be a happy time that brings a smile to my face.

Today, we are making some simple decorated plastic eggs — perfect for all the little people in your life. Continue reading Quick & Easy Easter Egg Buddies

Butterfly Pretzels & Cinnamon Sticks

Hi all! I am working on some fun new patterns for you that will be coming up in the next few weeks, but for today I’m going to share the valentine that I’m putting together for my kids to distribute in class this year. I like to attempt to do something original, though some years I run out of time. I am fabulous at procrastinating, so this year my goal is to start early…and then to actually finish is key.
