Glow in the dark eyeball slime

Glow in the dark eyeball slime

It’s hard to ignore the phenomenon that is slime. Halloween is coming up so I thought I would give it a try and make glow in the dark eyeball slime. Now I will have to admit an 11 year old was consulted before I made this slime and she was able to help me with the recipe. This is a fun Weekend Craft to do with the kids.

How to Paint a Buffalo Check Mason Jar

How to Paint a Buffalo Check Mason Jar

Mason jars are one for my favorite cheap ways to create DIY Fall decor for my home.  Most of the time I don't even need to go to the craft store I have a ton of mason jars from canning and past crafts. If we can remember the past couple Christmas' I have been obsessed with buffalo check. This buffalo check Christmas tree was one of my all time favorite trees I have ever decorated. Well when I was out at Joann Fabrics a few weeks ago I saw an orange buffalo check throw blanket that I had just fell in love with. I thought I wonder if I could incorporate orange buffalo check into my fall decor.

Georgia Peach Bridal Shower

Georgia Peach Bridal Shower

My brother is getting married and it's time to celebrate. He is marrying his girlfriend of 10 years and we couldn't be more excited to make Danielle officially part of our family. The couple met in Savannah Georgia where my brother was going to college and Danielle lived. So it was only natural to throw her a Georgia peach bridal shower up here in New England. I always say the best parties are all about the details. Details make a party memorable, a good theme helps a little too.

Mason Jar Cold Brew Iced Coffee Recipe

Mason Jar Cold Brew Iced Coffee Recipe

Today I am sharing my favorite cold brew iced coffee recipe that can be made in a mason jar. Some may say that I am an iced coffee or maybe just coffee (in general) addict. Any where I travel I am always on the hunt for a local coffee shop. I think part of this is the coffee shop culture since I freelanced for so long and when I was in grad school that is where the majority of my work took place. Now in all these travels to coffeehouses I have developed a love for cold brew iced coffee.

DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

Easter is just around the corner and I can't believe how early it is this year, April 5th. I've been asked to host Easter and my house is very small so the thought of it is stressing me out! So naturally what do I do? I craft.... or eat dip. So why not do both. I had a left over salsa container (coincidence?) that I thought would make a great vase for the dinner table on Easter. I ran the jar through the dishwasher.

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Who doesn't love their $5 lattes, show of hands? Who likes paying $5 for them? That's what I thought. In an effort to save some money and not go to Starbucks every weekend I started a quest to make myself a quality coffee on the weekend. Someone at work had told me that she places milk in a cup and microwaves it for 30 seconds creating her version of steamed milk without a frother. So this past weekend my sister and I were chatting that to get foam you need air. So why not shake it in a mason jar before microwaving it.
