  • Project: day 132: get crafty/ so simple and cute easter or spring snack/ carrot “goldfish“!
  • Thanks so much to Grandma B and Aunt Molly for helping out with so much Easter fun!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? yes, it was too adorable! They were the perfect snack for the kiddos after a long easter egg hunt, but they are also great as parting gifts, easter basket fillers, cute lunch box snacks, and so much more!
  • What I would do differently:  make more to hand out with friends, or change out the goldfish for orange jelly beans!
  • Items used: goldfish, clear cellophane treat bags shaped into carrots by scotch tape and green ribbon!

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 124: cooking it up/ kids cook/ adorable easter or spring “chick and egg” breakfast/ “peeping pancake“!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2. It really should be a 1, but since I always mess these things up and mine definitely did not turn out as cute as the original source, it’s a 2!
• Would I do it again? yes. I need to try it again so I can get it right, but it really didn’t matter to the girls. They still thought it was adorable and ate it all up!
• What I would do differently: make it better!
• Items used: eggs, pancakes, chocolate chips for eyes, and a small piece of orange for the nose, plus the adorable idea and recipe from: http://kitchenfunwithmy3sons.blogspot.com/2012/03/peeping-pancake-breakfast.html
Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • 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
