Play-Doh Easter Gift Idea


I created these simple Easter gifts with a jar from the Dollar Tree.  I filled it with two Easter related cookie cutters that came in a four pack for a dollar at Target, some Easter Grass and a small sized Play-Doh. 
Then I added a simple bunny out of card stock to the top that I cut out on my silhouette machine.
I was able to make three small gifts for around $7 total.  I hope these little jars are a hit with the little tykes getting them. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring Monogram

I'll admit that I enjoy and am slighting obsessed with any type of monogram or letter project. I bought a handful of these paper mache V's from Hobby Lobby.   I simply applied some scrapbook paper to the front of it with mod podge.  Thanks to my mother in law for giving me a huge pile of scrapbook paper a few weeks back.  Then added a little flower with a pom center from leftover flowers from my spring jar project.  This will have a home soon somewhere in my house. 


Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Mantel


My mantel continues to get some attention into spring. I think a main reason I avoided it was because I never had enough seasonal decor to really do anything. Thankfully I have accumulated some items over the past year from sales and my family. I placed some eggs inside my printers drawer that I also have decorated with a small wreath. 

The cute little bunny on the right was sent from one of my favorite family members as a little gift. I placed a large glass container on the right and I filled with eggs and split peas.  I added a mason jar from my grandmother. It is filled with eggs and I just love that the lid has a glass piece inside of it inside of metal one.  I had an egg pot given to me last year, so this year I put some small daffodils inside of it this year. It is nice to have something fresh on the mantel, and I'm hoping that I can keep it around a while. The other side has my glass jar with some eggs and some leftover paper shred from my Valentine's ombre project.  Then my little bunny made from a lemonade bottle. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Chevron Sock Vase

I think I've shared my love of Target on this blog many times.  This week on my lunch break I found a ton of socks for around $1.50 and I thought I'd take one pair and put them on a vase.  These socks were knee height so I was able to make not only a tall vase but a short vase with one sock.  I used two vases I had gotten last year at the Dollar Tree and bought some flowers for $5 at my local grocery store. Tulips are my absolute favorite.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful week. I cannot believe February is almost over. Where is this year going?

Cookie Jar Gift

I always try and remember to give "happys" as my Aunt calls them to my mother in law and mom because they do so much for us. I found this cute image on the Silhouette store and decided that I would make a cookie jar for my mother in law.  I found some cute items to fill it with mostly from the dollar spot at Target. Spring items have been put out in full force now that Valentine's Day is over.  I got some sanding sugar, some spring cookie cutters and some cupcake liners.  I also picked up some pink icing in the grocery section.  




I'm sure she will be using all of these goodies with Wynn soon since they enjoy baking together.  The was around $8 at Target as well.  The total cost of it was around $15.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day.

Topiary Wall Decor


This was my second try on my Silhouette machine this week.  I simply used some black vinyl to create a topiary and then I placed it on some wrapping paper I got in the dollar section at Target.  Then I framed in a frame that I already.


It now has a home above my PB Knock Off Organizer that I picked up at Goodwill.  I think it helps fill in the blank space above it now.


Thanks for stopping by!
