  • Project: day 111: outdoors we will go/ simple spring flower arrangement/ daffodils and lemons!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? definitely, it’s too easy not to do!
  • What I would do differently: add at least one more lemon, but it would be very cute with additional flower colors in the arrangement as well
  • Items used: Daffodils are so cheap right now, I got 3 sets of 10 at Trader Joe’s for just $1.15. I had one lemon lying around the house and saw one up for grabs in the teacher’s lounge today, but it turned out to be a very small grapefruit! Oh well, it still works! Adorable idea from: http://b-moviestar.com/tag/flower-arrangement

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 73: outdoors we will go/ super easy valentine’s centerpiece (tulips and conversation hearts 😉
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? yes, in fact I will be doing it again and again for each and every season! Halloween (candy corn), Easter (Jelly Beans), 4th of July (red, white, and blue M&M’s?), Turkey day (pumpkin candy corn?), Christmas ( red and green M&M’s?). Maybe I’ll come up with some better ideas, but it’s too easy and adorable not to do!
  • What I would do differently: nothing at all except to change it up each season!
  • Items used: large or small conversation hearts (Brach’s or Sweetheart’s work great!), pink tulips, small vase to hold flowers, and large vase to hold small vase as well as the candy 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 43: outdoors we will go/ house decor/ succulents and planting day!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2 (thank you mom for helping me with my black thumb!)
  • Would I do it again? yes, I absolutely love succulents so much. I have had them indoors for about 6-8 months, and I haven’t killed them yet!
  • What I would do differently: get more! The girls absolutely love planting, I just need to do it more often. I think I just typically shy away from it since I don’t have a green thumb, but oh well, we can do it again in a few months!
  • Items used: all plants and a few new pots from Lowe’s.

until ipinterest tomorrow!
