She's about to pop baby shower

We’re in the middle of full scale Easter preparations around here (report to come next week). But my sister finally sent me pictures of what the mom-to-be called the “coolest baby shower ever!” This is not a party I hosted. I didn’t have to make the cake pops, or mail the invitations. I didn’t even […]

Other Easter Inspiration

You’ve seen my wheat grass, edible nests, and the cool “tie”-dyed eggs I want to try. I thought I should show you some of the other ideas from blogland that are inspiring me this Easter. Several of these are via the blog, Be Different, Act Normal. I’m planning to do this bunny napkin fold by […]

Any idea what this is? Well, I will tell you.
