Fancy Girlie Easter Basket

Fancy Nancy Easter Basket-2

Recently I was challenged to fashion an Easter basket for a girl using items found at my local Fry’s (Kroger) grocery store. Since Fry’s is one of the stores I frequent I thought it would be fun to see what I could find there and with my daughters in mind. I was immediately drawn to […]

Testing Week Lunch Box Notes

Lunch box notes

My kids have standardized testing this week at their school. My 4th grader’s teacher asked us to send in some words of encouragement for her to hand out from us through out the four days of testing. She thought this might be a nice way to help reduce their anxiety and help them feel confident […]

Woodgrain (faux bois) Easter Table

Woodgrain faux bois tablescape Easter

I love coming up with a bit of a different concept each year for Easter. You’ve seen my Earthy Easter, Carrot Easter, Egg-stra Special Easter, and Dip-Dyed Ombre Easters in the past.  This year inspiration struck when I saw the new line of stencils from Plaid by blogger friend Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks.

Book theme Bar Mitzvah

We are heading into one of my birthday seasons that happens to fall right between Easter and Mother’s Day. The trouble with a cluster of birthdays is that it makes it really difficult to get each party blogged before moving on to the next one. Because of that, I have several parties from the last […]

Dip-Dyed Ombre Easter DIY Details

Has Spring come to your part of the world yet? It is feeling very much like spring here in sunny Arizona. My only fear is that it will make way for summer far too soon. I showed you a few pictures last year of our Dip-dyed ombre Easter celebration, but didn’t get a chance to […]

Easy Gender Reveal

We finally found out what baby #5 will be this week (and it isn’t an alien…yea!). There wasn’t time (or energy) for a full gender reveal party, but I felt I wanted to do something special to break the news to my children. So here is what we did. They had known I was going […]
