Springtime Bird Nest Cupcakes

>> Tuesday, April 26, 2011

My friend next door planned an egg hunt Saturday for the neighborhood kids. I offered to bring cupcakes for everyone. My initial plan was to create cupakes with bunny bums on them. I had flattened over 50 mini marshmallows with the idea to color them into bunny feet.

But I wasn't impressed with the way the cupcake turned out. Perhaps it was my husband's words I kept hearing when he saw this...


Peep Wreath

>> Tuesday, April 19, 2011

My friend next door made a cute and simple Peep chick wreath the other weekend. I had to follow suit and make one too. I chose the Peep bunnies just to be less of a copy cat. This wreath cost less than $7 to make. Shazzam!


Silk Dyed Easter Eggs

This year I tried out silk dyed eggs. I saw this technique last year after I had already dyed marbelized eggs. Drats! But then again maybe waiting a year was worth it. I'll definitely be doing this process again.

Here's a list of all you'll need to do the same project:

  • large uncooked eggs
  • 100% silk ties, scarves, shirts, etc.
  • 100% cotton cloth squares
  • rubber bands, twist ties or string
  • non-reactive pot to boil eggs (enamel, glass or stainless steel)
  • vinegar
  • patience

My kids and I set off to the thrift stores in late March in search of silk ties. I let the kids pick whatever tickled their fancy as long as it had a 100% silk label and was $1 or less.
Here's our bounty of ties.


Lego Police Birthday

>> Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Today I have to share a most excellent birthday party I had nothing to do with. I just begged my friend to let me take pictures and blog about all her creativity.

Meet Cooper. He's the birthday boy and very lucky son of a dear friend of mine.

A friend that predates training bras and mall bangs. I'm the 1984 birthday girl in the center and Cooper's mom, let's call her Ophelia, is the one on my left in the awesome My Little Twin Stars tee. If her shirt choice isn't proof that Ophelia's super cool maybe this will convince you.


April Fools' Breakfast

>> Friday, April 1, 2011

This year for April Fools' Day I decided to do a candy breakfast. It was inspired off this idea from Family Fun magazine. Following their directions I created the miniature candy breakfast you see here. But I thought I could make a few modifications to the bacon.
