Easter Fun with Lola and Nine DIYs


Happy Easter to all! I’m off to join some friends for church and brunch, followed by dinner with more. I have been promised tremendous amounts of ham. And chocolate. The good news is Lola had fun discovering her Easter basket this morning. Not as much fun as she had finding it yesterday. Hope everyone is enjoying […]

Egg Shell Bud Vases


My house has been Easter egg central for the last month, which I lurvvvvve, but it has made it difficult for me to draw the line between craft material and food. There are plenty of things you can do with a hardboiled egg or a the guts of a hollowed out egg, but sometimes you just […]

The good news is Spring is here, the magnolias are peeping their heads, and decapitating that chocolate bunny with my teeth felt damn good.  On my […]

The resulting yarntastic egg wonder is up on I Love to Create’s blog, where I’ll be posting tutorials once a month. Wahoo! This […]

No Mess Easter Grass

So, I was talking to my friend Amy week about what she was putting in her kiddo’s Easters baskets. She says this and that and a whiz-bang-whatsit…and then she drops a bomb: No Easter Grass. Amy runs a no Easter grass household. Amy is a neatknick. Nobody gets to wear shoes in her house and […]
