Feature Friday-Blog Swap with Smashed Peas and Carrots


Hi all! I am super duper excited to be here for the day...I just adore Michelle's blog, how much cool stuff can you find on here, LOVE it!!
My name is Maggie and I am the momma behind the curtain at the blog, Smashed Peas and Carrots, and my Etsy shop! That's me below.

I am a momma to two little ones (one boy and one girl) and one on the way...I'm due in July (woo hoo, half-way done!)...and I'm married to an amazing man that let's me go crazy in the crafts department, how lucky am I that he let me take over our dining room! I only have to clean it up for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter (and by looking at the calendar I better get cleaning!) My blog is about my life as a momma and the adventures and mishaps that happen when you have kids. I also have loads of DIY craft and sewing tutorials, yummy family friendly recipes, and easy projects to do with your little ones!

Michelle's One Minute Interview:

What is your favorite crafting tool or secret weapon?
WOW! There are so many to choose from...hmmm. I think my favorite tool is probably my rotary cutter! Weird, right? I use it ALL the time for cutting fabric, ribbon, felt, paper, the list goes on. It is 10,000 times better than a pair of scissors in my opinion. Everyone should have one, make that two...you gotta get different sizes!

What is your favorite Easter tradition?
Oh my, I just love me an Easter Egg Hunt! They are sooo fun! I am loving having kids just so I can do them again and YAY that my kids are old enough to participate :)

Who would you have play the lead in a movie about your life story? Why?
My gosh, this one is hard, I never ever thought about it! I guess I would say Jennifer Lopez...please don't cringe! It's just that she is hispanic and so am I...my Dad is from Peru (random fact alert!!) So, I suppose she is most fitting. Please don't all leave now!

Oh, that was fun! What a good idea Michelle,
I'm one of those silly people that love playing games!

Ok, so here's a little peek at some fun things you'll find on my blog:

I adore pretty-ing up my front door so I have lots of front door bling tutorials on my blog. Two of my favorites are the Fabric Rose Wreath and the Clothesline Wreath. I just made a Lettered Ribbon Door Hanging for Easter which I am totally lovin' these days, it would look great with the word 'Spring' too!

I have a tutorial for these super stylin' Glazed Fabric Button Rings I made out of fabric scraps. I just love how they are so customizable to the person or outfit. Plus, the glaze keeps the fabric waterproof so they won't get all icky and wonky after washing your hands all day long...a momma's dream come true...ok, maybe just mine :)



I'm currently having a love affair with my Crockpot, oooh I just can't get enough of it! I have tons of recipes which may or may not involve the crockpot on my blog. My family especially enjoyed this one for Banana Bread...in a crockpot, how cool is that!?!

I also have a big thing for making felt foods, I think they are the coolest kids' toys out there. I have lots of tutorials on my blog for making your own. Some fun ones are the felt Cinnamon Roll and Blueberry Muffin, seen above in my Breakfast Basket.

Ok, man that was so fun! Thanks so much Michelle for letting me takeover your blog for the day!! Please blog hop, skip and jump over to Smashed Peas and Carrots and say 'hi' I always love to meet new friends :) I also have an amazing giveaway going on right now for some beautiful jewelry...come by and check it out!!

This is such a cute idea! I have followed both of you on Twitter (not sure how or why) and have never looked at either blog. So so cute! I am a fan! Thank you for sharing.
