Try this variation on paper dolls to make some easy Halloween decorations….
Before you send you little ones to stuff their pumpkins (and then their faces) with candy, put something a little more healthy in their stomachs – goblin fruit faces!
If you’re a child of the 70’s, maybe you remember the “pear salad” your mom made you eat?…
Can’t stand to look at Pinterest because you feel like such a failure as Super Mom? You are not alone! I am constantly plagued by the fear that I am not doing enough with my kids. And that’s coming from someone who for a while sold craft ideas to Family Fun Magazine. Later, when I hit a slump I couldn’t even stand to look at the magazine because it reminded me of all the great activities I should be doing with my kids.
I have been chatting with some other super moms recently and have found that I’m not the only one who feels this way.
We talk about and publicly post our successes.
We only see our own failures!…
I adored my Easter basket growing up, which my grandmother had dressed up for me by attaching plastic flowers to it. Now, with all the gorgeous silk floral vines available in craft stores, it’s easier than ever! I made two baskets for my own little girls (now bigger), and they love them just as much.
So I’m still trying to find my way into what I want to blog about. It’s a good thing I added the category “cooking.” Otherwise this would have to go under “posts to keep me from giving advice to random people in stores.” 🙂 I just hate to see someone an inferior product. I know they would really like for me to share my advice. I just know it….
Looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day snack or even a light but festive meal? Here’s a recipe for quick heart-shaped thin and crispy mini-pizzas. You make the crust out of flour tortillas so you won’t even have to mix the dough!…
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! I don’t know about you, but every year I have plans to channel my inner-Martha Stewart and make heart shaped sugar cookies and decorate them with royal icing. Or maybe Pecan Linzer Cookies with Cherry Filling! Yes! They are gorgeous and I bet they taste even better. And I’ll make my own marshmallows and cut them in the shape of hearts and float them on top of hot-chocolate made with real milk on top of the stove!
Sadly, I disappoint myself often. Sometimes, life just gets in the way. I need to remind myself that it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing approach!
So, here’s an idea for those of you who ran out of time or are always more realistic in your expectations! 🙂 These are super easy. And they have fresh strawberries and so they’re healthy. Okay, maybe just healthi-er….
Even little kids have fun making their own Valentines! But I was never one to want to put paint all over their hands for making handprint hearts and the like. Too messy! This idea is no muss no fuss….
One of my pet peeves is the articles in magazines that to advise you to let go of the stress of the holidays don’t do anything to make your dinner special. Just use paper plates and eat frozen pizza!
Really? I mean, I know all about stress at the holidays. Just ask my hubby, I can definitely set out to tackle too much.
But you can make some concessions without out going as far as paper plates and plastic forks that break. The secret? Everything possible goes in the dishwasher!…
