Heart Treats

I love that I have found bloggers to follow that share such fun and creative ideas. Yesterday I used leftover candy to make treats with my son and we danced, giggled, and tasted as we went. All because of this easy valentine treat idea that I came across on a fantastic blog called Pleasant Home.

Isn’t this brilliant! These leftover mini candy canes were just about to make it to the garbage, and now they won’t go to waste yeay.


We put white chocolate melts in a squeeze bottle and zapped them in the microwave for 30 second intervals until it was smooth (thanks to Natalie for this part of the idea). Stay tuned this little treasure will come in handy for some Oreo treat we are going to make next week :)

My Valentine’s Topiary

I came across an AmAZing idea and tutorial for this Valentine's Topiary on one of my favorite blogs The Idea Room!! If you have never visited this blog you have to, it is filled with super cute ideas and fantastic directions.

I love the way my topiary came together. I haven’t decorated for Valentine’s Day yet so I just took a few random pictures of how it turned out. I hope you like it!

Homemade Birthday Card 2010

I really am trying hard to send all my friends and family a cute little card on their birthday. I am sure I’m not the only one who made this as a goal for the year, right? So I sat down and made some cards to have on hand.


I would love other ideas so please share or let me know if you have a favorite blog you “borrow” ideas like this from!!

Fishy Fun

I am teaching my son all about fish this week. He is completely baffled by the fact that they can breath underwater lol.

The first project I had him do was to learn about fish scales and fins….


The second project took a little more time and preparation but he looooved making it…..

We cut out two giant fish and then cut shapes and circles out of old magazines and glued them on like scales

IMG_7702Then we stapled the two together and balled up magazine pages to stuff him with.


and this is how he turned out!
