EASY EGG PEOPLE

IMG_5596.JPG

I am all about an easy way to decorate and make some original eggs for Easter. When I saw the stencil and sticker set by Yoobi at Target, the lightbulb went on. The stickers are the perfect size for decorating some Easter eggs! Elliott and I had a blast making these and coming up with names and backgrounds for them. We got pretty elaborate. Ha! To add some color (or clothes), we just made some egg dye and dipped them in for a few seconds. Seriously, it was so much fun and I loved how easy it was. Now go on and make your own egg people! You know you want to.

Guys, I am so excited for Easter! It's one of my favorite holidays. Mostly because I love spoiling Elliott with fun and semi-cheesy Easter goods. To kick off the Easter projects I made this "good egg" shirt! Because every kiddo is a good egg, right? Right?! It's super easy to make and you can even make it into a tote bag if you want. Actually, I think I might do that. While I make my tote, you should start on your shirts and check out the full post and instructions over on Ehow! Happy crafting!

So close. Download them here! There are two sizes included in the printable so we big kids can get in on the fun too! To make your own, download the peeps, print them onto temporary tattoo paper, and follow your paper's instructions!

I am sure your family loves Annie's. Their cheddar bunnies, mac n cheese, and other staple snacks have been a family favorite since Elliott was a toddler. We try our best to give Elliott snacks that use real food. Annie's new pizza poppers and pizza bagels fit the bill for us! They are delicious, fun and most importantly they use simple,real ingredients. Also, they are easy! A big selling point for me. We had Elliott's cousins over last weekend and I thought it would be the perfect time to bust out some snacks and give these a try.

PRINTABLE RAINBOW COLORING POSTER

Printable rainbow coloring poster

Elliott is so excited for St. Patrick's day and I love his enthusiasm. To add fuel to that fire I thought it would be fun to make this coloring poster! Everyone knows leprechauns love rainbows, this poster will help lure them to your house to leave a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. At least, that's my theory. You can print off your own poster to color right over here

LOOK MA! I'M IN A MAGAZINE!

It's true and we couldn't be more excited about it. Good Housekeeping contacted me a few months back about creating a project for their spring issue and of course I practically screamed YES! Well, the issue is finally out and Elliott feels famous. It was such a fun project and I may or may not look for a copy every time I go to the store. Ha! If you haven't already, run to your nearest magazine stand and check it out!
