Master Bath Remodel #1

Master Bath Remodel #1


 We have a ton of remodeling we want to do to our master bathroom but of course we can only afford a little at a time. The first of our remodel was the most pressing, we had a window that leaked that we could not seem to fix so instead of replacing out the window we remodeled the entire wall. Our original plan was to rock the entire wall and add the fire place, but of course we could not afford the rock right now so instead Shawn came up with the great idea of doing wood. It turned out gorgeous. We will eventually have to redo the tile around the tub to something else that matches (possibly rock).



Carrots In Dirt Edible Dessert

Carrots In Dirt Edible Dessert

 

In honor of our first ever planting project we had to have a dessert to go with it, so we planted candy filled plastic carrots (from the dollar store) in pudding with crushed Oreo's (Dirt). Addie was so excited to plant her carrots she did a great job! She was even more excited to eat her dessert.








Planting/ Gardening With Toddlers

Planting/ Gardening With Toddlers


So to give you a little background i am a terrible gardener, I cant even keep my house plants alive. But I would love it if my daughter had a chance to make her own little garden, i believe it is such a great learning experience and a wonderful thing to do as a family. That being said I found this adorable little green house, anything Mickey Mouse my kids love, so we planted out first plants this weekend. However Addie had already got a jump start on her planting at Preschool earlier this year- I put a picture of how that plant is doing up as well.

DIY Frozen Olaf Shirts

DIY Frozen Olaf Shirts



I found this fun idea for frozen T-Shirts from THIS SITE our shirts turned out so adorable and they where so simple to do. I did have to experiment with different fabric markers until i found one i liked. I prefer to use the Tee Juice markers from Jacquard over the other brands i tried. If you are working with kids to make these i would probably recommend the Fabric markers from Crayola. And of course dont forget to heat set the shirts when you are done to make them permanent (we also did the extra step of adding glow paint spatters around Oalf as you will see from the link above).

Frozen Olaf Birthday Door Wreath

I made this wreath for Addies upcoming  3rd birthday party- 
Addie of course is totally in LOVE with Frozen, so Im starting early on her party decorations. 
I apologize i didn't have time to take pictures while i was making this one- I made everything out of craft foam. I had to draw Olaf fee handed for this project then cut him out. I used some snowflakes I had left over from Christmas and hung them with glittery blue ribbon. Then attached a blue ribbon to hang it from.

Spring Wheelbarrow Craft

Spring Wheelbarrow Craft

 

We got these adorable wooden wheelbarrows from Quality Art Inc. for only $0.75ea.
We started off by painting the wheelbarrow what ever color you want, Addie choose pink of course and I painted Caydens blue. Next we filled the bottom with craft or Elmer's glue and poked in crumpled up green tissue paper for grass. Then we made our flowers, I cut out a flower shape out of poster board and glue 2 flowers together (sandwiching) a Popsicle stick in the middle of them. Then Addie decorated them with pom poms and gems. Last we hot glued them into the grass. (This would also be fun to do hand print or footprint flowers and stick them in). These would be such a fun Mothers day gift or just a spring or Easter craft.
