Baby Onesies Banner


Just a quick share!  Here's a tiny banner that I made for one of my friends.  She was having a baby shower luncheon, so I made this for her to decorate the table.  I love the little onesies!  Super cute and represents a baby shower so well!!  This has been my go to for baby shower banners!

The weather's still all over the place, the only good things coming out of it are rainbows and green grass! 

In hopes that the weather will turn around, I'll leave you with this!

Sakura Garden

Here's another lollipop garden, but this time I made them in sakura or cherry blossom flowers.  I even embossed the little bags with a tiny sakura pattern.  I used all different shades of pink, because this was for a baby shower!  I love how these came out!! I want to make more!!  Just looking at them, makes me smile!!
What's up for the weekend?  The weather has been a little wonky over here!  It's all over the place!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Smile it's SPRING!

Sprinkle Some Spring Around

Spring is here!!  I'm working on another Easter treat box!!  This one is a die cut using my Sizzix Big Shot!  I love this box, because it can fit a lot of goodies inside!! I used it for Easter once before, and I made it into a basket by fastening a strip of card stock as the handle.  There is a bunch of different things that you can do with this box, I'm having fun playing around with it.  Notice all my confetti?! :)  This is what I do with all the tiny left over scraps!  I cut them up for confetti!  Sprinkle them around and see people smile!  I think that everything looks better with confetti!  To me confetti just screams FUN!  You can add them to a card, but them in a gift or goodie bag, jazz up a table, I even used it for little party favors for one of my lovelies bachelorette party.  We had them on the table in mini champagne favor glasses, it was so cute as decor. Then we used them to throw around.  We were tossing them in the air and taking "action" shots.  The pics came out awesome!  

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Next week is Easter!! It seriously feels like we skipped February?!  Where did the time go?

Garden of Sweetness

Here is a completed garden!  This is one side of the box, I used the sames bunny for both sides but decorated it a little different.

This is the other side of the box.  For the box, I just used an old box that I had.  It can fit 8 lollipops with a little space all around.

Here is the side view of the box, that I decorated with a basket and some tiny hearts.

This is the other side view of the box, just kept it simple.
Since everything is scaled to the smaller side, this is a great way to use up your scraps.  All the details on the box are all using scraps!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of the individual treats! UGH!  They are each in little shopping bags and I used the See's lollipops since they are perfect shape!

This is a great little treat for Easter!  This gift is great because it can be used as favors and a centerpiece at the same time!  This pack of 8 is great for office or school treats!

Hope you're all hopping into Spring!!  Easter is next week!

St. Pattie's Day Munchies

Just wanted to share this little bit of goodness!  I am a huge fan of bakerella, she has such great ideas and makes everything seem so easy!  When I read this recipe last week, I knew that I just had to make it!! I didn't follow it exactly, but it still came out very tasty!  I used cheerios, pretzels, ready made trail mix, lucky charms and honey roasted peanuts.  This was so easy, all I had to do was melt the white chocolate candy coating and mix everything together.  Bakerella says to let it sit on wax paper, but since I ran out I just used a foil pan and that worked fine.  After everything set, I bagged them in regular ziplock baggies and added this simple little topper to hide the ziplock part of the bag.  Perfect for St. Pattie's Day! If you ever need something quick and easy to make, this is the perfect little treat!  All you have to do is change out the lucky charms to fit your theme or holiday!  Be sure to hop on over to bakerella's website and check out all her delish treats!

Hope everyone had a great St. Pattie's Day!

Bunny Gardens

Here's a little sneak peek to some of the Easter sweets that I'm making! Sorry, I was trying some apps out that's why the pics are kinda weird looking.  I will post better pics soon!  These are bunny garden boxes.  Similar to the ones that I made before, but a little different.  These pics don't have the flower candy lollipops in them yet.  Stay tuned for more to come! 

Have a great weekend!!

52 Lists Week 7

Catching up on my lists for Moorea Seal's 52 lists project.  Week 7: List the things that make you feel healthy: mind, body & soul

I 'll admit that I have a little love affair with food, and I am a bit of a junk food junkie, and I am trying very hard to change a lot of bad habits!  Believe me it's no easy task!!  Even though, I've always played sports and somewhat stays active, I have never been a real healthy eater! Within the last couple of years, I have made strides to improve my eating and workout habits.  Yes, there are times that I fall far off the wagon, but I always find a way to pick myself up again and start over.  The one thing that I have learned is that I don't want to keep starting over! Ugh! It sucks! This time, I promised myself, that I will not quit.  That's the only answer!!  I have nothing to blame but myself.  Now days, I try to stay active and motivated.  No matter how big or small, I try to do something.  Making this list, really helps me realize what things I'm comfortable with and what things I'm not.  
Here's my list:
-acai bowls
-eating healthy
-jumping in the ocean
-fresh air
-long walk
-getting hari done
-exfoliating skin

Have a nice weekend!

Hopping into Spring

It's that time again!  The Cadbury commercial is in full Spring!!  I love that commercial! It never gets old!! I'm hop,hop,hopping into EASTER!!! While I create more Spring treats to share with you, I want to share some of my past Spring seasons with you.  Some you probably have seen before, so pardon the duplicates. 

Part of an Easter collection that I made.  I was getting tired of making the front of the bunny, so I just decided to do the back! Which I actually like but than the front!! :) To give it a little cuteness, I just added a dab of cotton to the bonbon!

Chickadee is walking around the garden trying to find some Easter eggs! A cute tag, that could be used for a boy or a girl!

This was part of a baby shower gift that I made.  Just looking at all the colors makes me smile!  I will be making these again this Spring for different occasions!

Another Spring tag, great to add to Easter baskets! The best thing about Spring is that you can't really go wrong with any color!

A little swag with your bag! Can be used as a little Easter goodie bag or even an Easter hunt bag.  Pink Lemonade hopping in the garden looking for some eggs.

Little sweet treat bags.  This is the same little bag that I use for the lollipop flowers, I just added a simple fluttering butterfly to make it a little more fun!!

Another does of sweetness!  This picture is giving me a toothache!  This is a very simple way to give a little treat! I've done it with all different treats inside, sunflower seeds, M&M's, whatever fits. 

This is my fav!! It's a mini garden of sweets!  There's 8 individual lolly flower bags in each box!! It's perfect for an office gift or a table centerpiece!! I love how the flowers all come together!! 

This Spring season, I will be doing a lot of the same and a little bit different!  Can't wait to show you what I've been working on!  
Spring is filled with so many sweet surprised, what's your favorite Easter sweet treat?  

Hoppy Spring!

Current Crushes

Just wanted to share some things I'm loving at the moment!  This weekend I went to a plant show, and found this!  It's an egg pot! I think that it's so cute! Very clever and a cute little gift to give someone!!
 Here is a quick shot that I took while in the car.  I'm loving my new rings from Stella & Dot! These are 2 sets of stacking rings, but I took them apart and paired them up for an all gold look! Check out the sets here and here!
 Found this dress on Manuhealii website! I'm in love!! It's a great twist on the island style dress, but making it a little more modern!  I think I need this!!
