Bridal Shower White Lace Oreos

0152

I'm helping out with a bridal shower this weekend for a friend, mostly doing the dessert table, and I decided to make some homemade chocolate covered oreos for the shower. I know Oreo celebrated it's 100th birthday yesterday and I kept thinking about how perfect posting yesterday would have been, but I just couldn't get to it. So tonight I got home and set out to make my Bridal Shower White Lace Oreos. What you need:One bag of chocolate *your choice on colorCookie moldChocolate Transfer sheetOreosSpatulaCircle Cookie Cutter (or in my case...wine glass) I started by melting my chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute, stirring, then … [Read more...]

Craft Room Lamp Makeover

LampMakeover4

Hey guys, I'm so sorry it's been a while since I've posted anything interesting on here. Sometimes life catches up with you and you just need a break. I have had plenty of projects running behind the scenes though, I just needed a nice Ohio weather day to spray paint the last part of my lamp makeover to share it with you guys! Today was amazing, so I took the chance to spray paint and photograph the finished product. Here's the plain Jane lamp I started out with. This lamp has just been sitting in storage in my basement since we moved to our house two years ago. I knew I needed a lamp for my craft room, so I decided I should make use of … [Read more...]

Making food fun for toddlers

006

I have a definite picky eater. Fruits, veggies, and just about every food just isn't "his thing". What is his thing? Cookies, candy, donuts, sweets, cake, anything with sugar in it. My coworker suggested trying out raspberries to broach into the world of fruits a little bit more and I'm so glad I took her suggestion. My son now LOVES to eat raspberries with dinner. Mostly because we stick them on his fingers and he can play with them before he eats them. Raspberries have been a gateway fruit to strawberries and even sometimes *gasp* apples. I'll take what I can get people!! :)  Now if there was just a veggie we could stick on his fingers … [Read more...]

CraftOManiac+Head+Yellow

A few weeks (months?) ago Jen at Craft-O-Maniac put out a blog post taking applications for contributors on her blog. As you know, I already blog for DimplePrints and do the weekly Top 20 Sundae Scoop posts for Jamielyn I Heart Nap Time, so I debated my availability to even consider another blog role, but I couldn't resist the urge! I'm one of those people that's kind of "go big or go home" if you know what I mean. If I'm going to blog, I'm going to put myself out there as much as I can and make it work for myself. I don't do things halfheartedly and I take my blogging seriously because I enjoy it so much. So I sent Jen at Craft-O-Maniac … [Read more...]

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm just getting started on setting up some fun blog swaps with other super talented bloggers and I stumbled across THIS post from darling Anna at My Life and Kids and she's hilarious.

Hi, my name is Anna, and I blog at My Life and Kids. I'm super excited to be here today!   I had three kids in three years. Then I quit my job, moved to the suburbs, bought a minivan and started wearing mom jeans. In my spare time, I … [Read more...]

New Hobby-Crocheting

011

Last year I threw my friend a Little Mr. Man baby shower (that I'm still super proud of). At the shower, one of the guests made the mommy-to-be a gorgeous baby blanket that was super soft and was such a nice gift and thought and I remember thinking then how much I'd love to be able to do stuff like that. Fast forward to now and I finally decided last weekend to bite the bullet and sign up to learn how to crochet.I'm sure a lot of my friends will make fun of me for taking on such a "boring" hobby, but I really like what I've learned so far and I plan on signing up for Crochet 102 this week. I signed up for classes through JoAnn's and the … [Read more...]
