Memory blanket

I was over at Tea Rose Home just browsing around....as I often do, and I came across this post about how she took her baby's clothes and made them into a memory blanket!!

I love it....what a genius idea! I have a huge stack of baby blankets, and I totally want to make one big blanket! Just one more thing to add to my to do list!!! :)


Tee-Pee zipper pouch

I thought this was a genius idea that I found over at Trey and Lucy!

A cute little tee-pee bag for these Cowboy and Indian legos! What little boy wouldn't just love that!

Re-purposing: Turtle neck shirt to dress

Does anyone else have a child that refuses to wear turtle necks or long sleeves?

Well, my little 4 year old will not wear either of these...without a battle!

I hate to give all of her long sleeve shirts away, so I took one and made it into a dress...that she will wear!

The turquoise shirt came from another project that I am working on.
It was one of my old shirts!

I actually forgot to take a picture before I put on the rhinestones, and when I did it was a poor shot, but you get the idea!

I cut off the sleeves and made them short.

I will demonstrate in future posts how to do all of these techniques.

I decided to add a ruffle along the bottom of the dress. I think it added a lot!

Here is the neckline. I cut off the turtle neck and added some ruffles. I will show how to do these ruffles later this week!

Here is the rhinestones. I am so excited to show how to do this!!!

Now we have something she will wear...without the fight!!

A great Father's Day idea!!

Father's Day is coming up, and I have been trying to figure out what I am going to do.

I happened on to this fabulous idea over at Ucreate.

I love this, I might even try to do this this year! Go check it out Here, it is so cute!!!


Star Wars Birthday ideas

My son turned 7 this last week, and so we did a birthday party for him on Saturday!

It was actually so much fun....and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!

I did a light saber out of cupcakes.

You can't really see, but the bottom 3 have grey frosting and the rest are green!

And these were a huge hit! They absolutely loved them!
I just took swimming noodles, cut them in half and wrapped black and silver duct tape around the bottom!

They had so much fun with them!!
We had a couple of surprise guests come and fight the Jedi nights!

The first was Darth Vader!!!

Very Scary!!

And the second guest was Yoda!!

Not quite as scary!!

I actually made this costume several years ago when my son was this size!

Then we did the Darth Vader pinada!!

The kids had a lot of fun doing different games with the light sabers.

We also played freeze tag with star wars stickers. The person that was it, had a sheet of stickers and if you got tagged with a sticker you had to freeze until another player pulled off your sticker!

So much fun!!


Sweet Potato Biscuits

This is a recipe that my mom used to make for us when we were kids.

It is also a way to get your kids to eat a serving of vegetable and not know it!!


My son is super picky and he ate these!!

I made some sausage gravy and poured over the top of mine, but my husband thought that was weird, so he did a butter cinnamon mixture and poured over his....which I have to admit was really good!!

Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 c. flour
3 t. baking powder
2/3 t. salt
4 T. shortening
1 c. cooked sweet potatoes (mashed)
1/3 c. milk

Cut shortening into flour, salt and baking powder which have been sifted together. Stir in sweet potatoes and add enough milk to make a dough stiff enough to roll. Roll on floured tombstone and cut with biscuit cutter. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.

I am totally lazy and didn't want to roll them out and cut them, so I added a little bit more milk and dropped them by spoonfuls onto my cookie sheet and baked them. And they turned out great!!!


Another safety pin necklace!!!

Do you remember this safety pin necklace???
If not you can see how I made it Here

Well, I came up with another version of one!!
I love how easy and cheap these necklaces are!

They are really quite fun to make with kids....older kids!!

I love having my daughter model...takes the pressure off of me!!

Okay, so funny story, I first had my daughter take the picture...

and we looked at it and were scared!!!

This is totally a scary picture !!! She calmed my hair down and I tried not to open my eyes so much!!! :)
I little better, but I still like my daughter to be the model!!!
