DIY Easter Egg Maracas

| Cinco De Mayo, Crafts, DIY

PicMonkey Collage

Since Easter we have had a ton of extra Easter eggs lying around. My daughter still loves to put things inside them and hide them. The rest of the Easter stuff is all put away but a few of the eggs have stayed out. When getting ready for Cinco De Mayo I got the idea to make maracas out of the extra Easter eggs. I love getting extra use out of things I have around the house. It worked out really well and was super easy.

Today I am combining two of my favorite things cupcakes and flowers! That is the way to my heart, cupcakes and flowers. If I am mad at someone I will immediately forget if they bring me cupcakes or flowers(preferably both). I love springtime with all of the flowers blooming. I keep seeing these beautiful yellow flowers everywhere. That is probably why I am loving yellow lately! This is such a fun way to present cupcakes for a spring party or for Mother’s Day. If your mom is anything like me then she would love these flower wreath cupcakes. You could also make a bouquet but I thought a wreath would be fun. read more

Earth Day Cake Pops!

| Desserts, DIY, Holidays

Earth Day Cake Pops

Earth Day is coming up soon! In the past I haven’t really done much for this day. The last couple of years my daughter Keira was too young to really get into it. This year though we have some fun things planned. We are going to plant some fruits and vegetables at my parents house. We live in an apartment and despite my best efforts I can’t keep plants alive. It is better for the Earth if I don’t personally own plants. I am also setting up an easy recycling activity with items laid out to recycle and Keira can put them in the pretty recycle bin. I know one of the best ways to get Keira’s attention is with something yummy or a fun crafts. Like mother like daughter. I made these Earth cake pops for a party but they are perfect for Earth Day. read more

Game of Thrones Printable and Dragon Eggs

| Crafts, Decorations, Printables

Winter is Coming printable

If you are not a Game of Thrones fan this post is not for you but to my fellow fans welcome! I’m obviously very excited for the Game of Thrones premiere this week. I might need to get HBO Go just to watch this show. That is how much I love it! I may or may not be dressed as the queen of dragons while watching. I also need to go back and binge watch all of last season before I start this one. With so many characters it is hard to remember where everyone was at when it ended last season. Plus my memory is about as good as a goldfish. I am just assuming goldfish don’t have a long term memory but I could be wrong. read more

Hot Air Balloon Decoration!

| Crafts, Decorations, Events

IMG_38563

Where I live there are hot air balloons in the sky almost every morning. It makes it a little easier to get up early when you can go out and see the hot air balloons. I am just not a morning person, what would I do without coffee! Anyways the hot air balloons are so fun and whimsical they brighten my day! They also make for a nice party decoration. I’m always looking for fun things to do with balloons to dress them up a bit. For the hot air balloons basket you can use a paper cup or a party hat like I did. This hot air balloon decoration is pretty and easy to make. read more

Easy Floral Backdrops!

Hooray, easy floral backdrops! I love a pretty backdrop! For events a backdrop can make a huge difference for the appearance of a dessert table. They also are fun for pictures. With a pretty floral backdrop you don’t even need photo props. Now you could have really flowers and spend a ton for a floral wall or have complicated ones that take ten hours. That is not how I roll! These backdrops are seriously the easiest to make with simple tissue paper flowers and all you need are a few items from the dollar or party store. You could set it up at home for easy cute pictures or for a party. read more

Silly Bunny Boxes with Free Printables!

| Crafts, DIY, Easter

IMG_36741

We are in full on Easter prep this week! My daughter Keira is on spring break so we have some extra time for activities. Besides going out on fun adventures, I planned a few Easter crafts to get us ready for the Easter bunny. I wanted to make silly bunnies because well we are silly and appreciate some silliness(is that a word?). I was thinking of making sock bunnies or bags but I happened to have these cake boxes so I made bunny boxes. If you don’t have boxes you could use paper bags, which would look adorable! I might make some bunny bags before Easter. read more

Bunny Ears and Bunny Nose Treats!

| Desserts, DIY, Easter, Holidays

IMG_35521

My daughter Keira has really been getting excited for Easter this week. Yesterday she was wearing bunny ears around the entire day. They kept falling in her face but she insisted on keep them on. She also picked out a cute dress for Easter. It has multicolored jelly beans all over it, so cute! She has a better fashion sense than I do so I usually let her pick out what she wants to wear. Both of us love bright colors and spring is the perfect time for that. To get ready for Easter I’ve been testing out some fun and easy treats. We made bunny ear chocolate spoons and marshmallow pop bunny noses. This was so easy to put together. I like anything I can prepare with Keira so I don’t have to stay up at night getting things ready. read more

I just love this time of year. March is probably my favorite month because the weather is just amazing in Arizona. I have to soak it in before the heat comes. We have been decorating with flowers and getting ready for Easter. Last Easter I made these cute baby chick mini cupcakes! I made mini cupcakes to fit in the Easter eggs and because mini chick cupcakes are just too cute! I wanted something easy to make and put out during the Easter festivities.
