Egg Carton Flowers

Pin It
I thought I would re-share an old post. With just celebrating Easter you may have extra egg cartons. This would be a cute craft to use them up on.
They turned out pretty cute I think!

Want to make some? Here is what you will need to do....

Cut these shapes from the egg carton

Cut slits and round them to make a flower shape

Paint them with craft paints and stack and glue them together. (I used 2 colors of blue craft paint to make them look more realistic).

Cut a scrap piece of felt you have leftover from another project. This will be be pretty small, for the center of the flower.

cut little slits along one side

Roll up the felt and glue to the middle of your flower and your done!

I used a 18 count egg carton and got 9 flowers

Now just decide what you will make with them all! Add them to a wreath, glue them on a frame, box, or whatever your heart desires. Have fun with them and if you make them I would love to see.

A Little Bit Healthier Sunshine Smoothie

Pin It
I'm trying to get back on track. Last year I lost 30 pounds and now have gained a few of those lost pounds back. I'm still at a much healthier weight than I used to be but still too far away from a healthy weight and where I want to be. So I'm trying to make some things I love a little bit healthier.

I will admit sometimes, okay not just some times. A lot of times it is just much easier to follow a tutorial from someone else and change it up a bit to add some of your own style then come up with an entirely original design. Besides there are so many good ideas out there on pinterest and other blogs that make it so simple for us  to recreate other peoples genius ideas. Such was the case with this Rustic Wall Organizer. I saw it and fell in love with it and knew I wanted to make one.

Lemon Pie Bars

It is finally beginning to feel like spring. The warmer weather is just so much more motivating. I have been busy getting some "spring cleaning" done. I try to clean as I go and my house isn't in need of too much spring cleaning (especially since we just moved into this one a few months back) but my children seem to be growing like weeds most of their clothes no longer fit them. Bags of clothes and toys they no longer play with are packed up and ready to be taken to Goodwill. 
After all my extra cleaning and not to mention the running (love it) I'm getting back into I was craving something sweet. That dang sweet tooth of mine will get me every time! Chocolate usually is the winner around here but something lemony was sounding good.
These Lemon Pie Bars sounded really good so that's what I made.  They are sweet and tangy at the same time......If you are looking for a " sweet & tangy" Lemon bar these just might hit the spot.

I have a fun little crochet pattern for you today a Crochet Doughnut Applique
don't worry if you are trying to watch your calories....these little morsels are 0 calories each not even an ounce of fat in them. I can't guarantee they won't want to make you go out and get the real thing though. (-:
Seriously though these would be so cute added to a shirt or a hat or add a chain to make one into a necklace or anything else you could possibly think of. You ready to make one???
