Party Decor and Games Using Recycled Material

It's party season!  In the next few months, popular celebrations like birthdays, weddings, prom and graduation is coming up so many people will be in party-planning mode which means cakes, sweet treats, decorations and games will be used to bring some fun to the party.  Last year for my daughter's birthday, I used several upcycled ideas to create a fun Frozen-themed birthday party for her.  It was Eco-friendly, budget-friendly, busy-parent-friendly and kid-friendly!  I wanted to share a quick and easy tutorial on how to make this DIY Frozen pinata I made as a party game using recycled material and I wanted to share it this week in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd.

DIY Mother's Day Burlap Lace Wreath

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Easy Mother's Day Wreath

As many of you know, I love wreaths and making them.  I think they are an easy way to add to your home decor.  I recently made this wreath since I had leftover material from a previous project.  I think it will make a sweet wreath idea for Mother's Day with the burlap lace ribbon and red flowers.  It was easy to make and inexpensive.  It can be a pretty decoration idea for your home or to make for your mom to hang in her house.

Tips for Taking Family Photos

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Tips from Our Annual Easter Family Pictures


Every Easter, we start the day with taking family photos.  I feel like it is the perfect time to take a family picture because I love the colors of Spring and it is usually nice weather.  This year, it did rain on Easter but it was off and on rain and did not start until the afternoon so, thankfully, we were able to take our pictures.   Our pictures are not perfect, there are usually little things off here and there but that is what happens when you have several people coming together to snap a photo, right?  Not to mention little children who may or may not cooperate!  Our imperfect pictures are usually fine with me and I cherish them all because it shows are reality and imperfect family moments.  I do learn something new every time our family takes pictures together so I thought I would share them with you all.

Easter Bunny Cake

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

Bunny Cake or Bunny Cookie

We did not eat a lot of dessert for Easter especially since we knew the kids were already going to be eating tons of treats from their Easter eggs and basket.  A few weeks ago we did make this Easter bunny cake after we bought the bunny cookie pan.  This pan is not too big, a good size for a sugar cookie or a cake.  We decided to go with a cake since we had cake mix on hand.  The cake came out very thin so if you do want to make it for a cake, I would recommend making at least three layers to make a nice thick cake for a few people to enjoy.
