PVC Mother's Day Bud Vase

Good Monday morning! 

Short post today.  Mother's Day is right around the corner and this project is perfect for the Mom who has everything.  What Mom wouldn't want a custom picture bud vase to admire along with some pretty flowers? I know I would love it.

Easy-to-Make Vases

Good afternoon!

Spring has sprung and with that comes Mother's Day and Teacher Appreciation Week. Today's vases would be appropriate for both of them! 

As you may have noticed by a few of my previous posts - I am a fan of the Lowe's Creative Ideas website as well as their monthly publication.  This is one of their projects. It appears to be fairly easy to make. These vases are quite unique and would be great in any color to match any decor!

So if you know a deserving teacher or are looking for a new way to give Mom flowers - check out the link to get started!

Easy Clothespin Snowflakes

Good morning! 

Spring break is's time to get back to the grind.  School will be done in about 51 days and this school year is just flying by so quickly. I guess before we know it it will be Christmas time again - LOL!!!!!

So I figured for my post today I would show you a Christmas project, which quite frankly I wish I had come across sooner. We decorated our Christmas tree this past year with only white lights and snowflakes.  We made most of the snowflakes and these would have fit right in with the decor. The instructions are very simple and I'm definitely going to make a bunch.  Although I love the natural wood appearance, I will probably paint some of them and even add a touch of sparkle!

You know it's never too late to start your holiday craft projects - so why not some Christmas in April or May or June - well you get the picture!! Want to know how to make them? Follow my link:

Easter Basket Cake Recipe

Good afternoon! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  

Well, it's official - spring break has begun!!!  No school until April 16th!! And my hubby managed a 4 day weekend - awesome!!  Tomorrow is "Gotcha Day"!!  It's the day that we became a family and is a special day for us. So our son is having a friend spend the night, then Saturday we are going to ride go carts and have lunch at a pizza buffet (pizza is one of his favorites)!  He pretty much gets to choose what we do and that's what he picked this year!!

I wanted to do a post today about another Easter cake I found that I think is cute and would be easy to do. So if you're still on the fence as to which cake you want to make for your holiday - here is another to consider! 

Go here for the recipe and a downloadable PDF of the diagram:
