Don't these little nests bring back memories of childhood. I know I made these on many a Easter. I was especially happy with this recipe because it had no peanut butter (daughter is allergic). Check them out at Mustard Seeds.

This weekend we were busy adding a little more color and whimsy to my little girls room. The final result were these super cute, super easy and super inexpensive paper lollies. I received my inspiartion from a segment that I saw on Studio 5. Although they do not have the segment linked to their website yet, you can follow this tutorial from Blue Cricket Designs to get the same effect. I embellished my lollies with a little Dollar Store doily, leftover paper scraps and buttons. I attached them to the wall with some wall stickies from the Dollar Store.

I just about died when I saw this birdhouse wall. What a great statement piece and hello my little girls room already has a bird theme in it...this would be perfect. Check out a tutorial at Caitlin Creer Interiors.
How adorable is this...I love peeps. My little girl had a peeps bunny stuffed animal when she was a baby, so when I think of peeps, I think of her. Check out this cute bunting at V and Co. via MADE.

I have been looking for old books for my shelf at Goodwill for quite sometime and have not had much luck. I think I am going to change my whole focus and go with this cute project instead! I love how these books look. What's even better is you can personalize with colors that you like or that fit with your decor. Now when I go to Goodwill I can just grab any book and go from there. See the project here at Brown Paper Packages.

ribbon for hanging
All that I did was wrap the yarn around the wreath form (purchased at the dollar store). Then I made a few fabric yo yo's (tutorial found at Hello My Name is Heather), hot glued them to the wreath, tied my ribbon up top and hung on my door. So easy and I had all the materials on hand except for the wreath form. I guess you could say this project cost $1.00. Not to shabby.

These would be perfect to add to my daughters collection of figurine toys. She plays with little figurines for hours and would love any new additions. Especially some that were made by mommy. Check them out at Shannon Makes Stuff.

I saw this project on Brown Paper Packages and knew that it would be a fun and very cute way to remind my children of some of our family values. I love all the different paper that she used and all the different fonts! See the cute project here.

Of course we all know that burlap is all the rage, but I personally have never used it. I clicked on my moms blog and saw a super easy tutorial that she had done for a St. Patty's Day wreath. She is so crafty! I never realized how incredibly easy one of these burlap wreaths were. I can't wait to whip one up of my own. Check out my cute moms blog for this tutorial and lots of other fun projects at It's Just So Fabulous.

One year, after Christmas, my mother-in-law gave me like 20 Christmas containers. It has since become a joke between my husband and I and his parents that they unloaded all of their junk on us that Christmas. We always laugh about it...well...maybe when my husbands sees these he will understand that anything can be turned into something great. Check out this idea at Someday Crafts.

I have wanted to make a necklace like this forever and finally got the chance this last week. I tried to put together a tutorial that will hopefully to helpful to anyone else interested in these pretty little beauties.
First step is to roll all of your fabric flowers. I used this tutorial found at made by the mama monster.
Next, cut felt circles and hot glue them to the back of each fabric rose to give it more sturdiness.
Cut a cresent shape out of your felt which will be used as your base for your fabric flower necklace.
Arrange your flowers on the felt to create a pattern that is desirable to you.
Take your glue gun and glue down all of your flowers to the base piece of felt.
The back will look something like this. Not perfectly beautiful but no one is looking at this side.
Lastly, take your piece of necklace chain and hot glue to the back. Then glue a felt circle over the chain to hold in even more securely in place. Make sure that the chain is long enough so that the necklace can fit over your head.
