Sugar Decorated Easter Eggs

As a child I loved getting the delicate panoramic sugar Easter eggs that my mother lovingly took the time to handcraft in my Easter basket.  I've always wanted to carry on that tradition for my kids, but I my previous attempts to make them were unsuccessful, to say the least.  So, when I saw this idea for Sugar Decorated Easter Eggs on the Imperial Sugar Kid's Kitchen site I thought it would be  a great replacement for those fancy sugar eggs, and a lot more fun for the kids too!

Personalized Memo Board

This project originally appeared on Poppy Seed Projects.   I love the Eleanor Frame and wanted to find a way to use it in my daughter's new 'big girl' room.  I finally decided my daughter need a pretty place to keep her special treasures, pictures and mementos and I knew I wanted to turn the frame into a memo board, but I also wanted to jazz it up a bit.  To personalize it I asked family members to send me 5 adjectives that they thought best described my daughter.  I LOVE how it turned … [Read more...]

Treat Cones & Stand

Treat cones are an easy way to serve food to little kids at parties.  And with a few supplies you can create a stunning display for the treat cones at your next party. First, you will need a block of foam.  I buy mine at the dollar store and keep them wrapped in the plastic to eliminate the mess while working with it. Next, wrap it in coordinating paper, like a present.  I used plain white craft paper. Wrap ribbon around the foam and secure with small straight pins. Now, … [Read more...]
