Fun Patches for Boys Pants

Anyone else have little boys who go through pants like wildfire? They look perfectly fine one day and the next you are pulling them out of the wash with holes in the knees? Well, I am expecting boy number three and poor kid is going to have a wardrobe full of hand me down hole in the knee jeans, so I went on a quest to find fun ways to patch those knees and stretch the clothing dollar. Check out these creative patching solutions!

Easter Subway Art and Mantle Decor

Do you ever feel like the true meaning of a holiday gets lost in the shuffle? Behind the Easter eggs, baskets, and chicks there is true meaning of rebirth and resurrection. I decided I wanted the main shelf/mantle area in my front room to focus on the true celebration of Easter and I love how it came together!

I gathered things I already had on hand:
But, I needed something a little more with a bit of color. I love the dark plum in the print and egg ribbon so I thought I would run with it. I love how deep purple is so elegant and royal, it seemed fitting for such a display. I grabbed some plum cardstock and my metallic Cricut pen because I thought it would be awesome to have some "hand-written" art. I found this Easter word collage and knew it would be perfect!

Rainbow JELL-O Recipe

Rainbow JELL-O is not new. I had seen it many times, but was intimidated. It looked like A LOT of work. With spring here I decided I wanted to make a fun colorful treat and put my big girl pants on to brave the gelatin rainbow.
