Tissue Paper Straw Flowers

Working on a few craft projects for our margarita bar for my fiesta bunco next week. I wanted to make some smaller tissue flowers for the straws. I followed these simple instructions from Fiskars & used a smaller 2" scallop punch to create the flowers. They are super easy to make & simply attach to the straw with a glue dot. Now I just have to decide if I like the black & white or the hot pink best-which do you like?

Pinata Cookies

And they are filled with mini M&M's-I can't stand the cuteness!

Fiesta Flower Hair Clips

It is my turn to host Bunco next month & I picked a fiesta theme since it is SO close to Cinco de Mayo (& who doesn't love a margarita)? I always like to have a little something for the girls so I made these cutie hair clips for my sassy senoritas!
I am pinning some fun FIESTA ideas on Pinterest...can't wait to share with all of you.

My oldest son is inviting his girlfriend to the graduation formal today with these cute cupcakes. I asked why he chose cupcakes & he replies because "that's our thing Mom".
Ah...young romance is so sweet!

Pink Glitter Vanity

I had fun this week doing a little DIY project for my favorite 6 year old girl. I painted the vanity in this fun, HOT pink glitter paint (it was previously white, purple & green).
I recovered the stool with this adorable scotty fabric & added a cute beaded trim! I can't wait to give it to her on Friday!

Egged on

For the past several years, we have "EGGED" our friends & neighbors. For those of you who don't know, you hide candy filled eggs outside their home, ring the doorbell & they are suprised with a fun Easter treat. Every year I like to make a little something homemade for the baskets & this year I dipped Peeps in candy melts for our baskets.
I also packed up the baskets with other sweet Easter treats for our friends & added this "You've Been Egged" printable from Anders Ruff.
The highlight of the egging were the glow in the dark eggs! The kids all loved them!
What are your favorite Easter traditions?

Glow In the Dark Easter Eggs

Have you seen these Glow In the Dark Easter Eggs from Lil' Luna? This is such a fun idea & easy to do! Simply place a glow stick inside a large plastic egg & viola, you have a glowing egg!
We made them this Saturday night for our friends party & the kids went crazy for them! They were such a big hit, I am making another batch for when we EGG our friends & neighbors this week!
