S'more Face

I gave Duncan just Fluff on a graham cracker and pippin was more than ready to help him clean up his mess.
. Marshmellow face! I love it. He is such a happy boy. He is talking a lot more now. He says cracker, Papa, please, thank you. If you ask him "what does Donkey Kong do?" He will punch his chest with both fists and say "Ahhh." He is very smart and likes to figure things out. He can now open his bedroom door so we had to flip his door handle and put the lock on the outside and we have to lock him in his room. He is so happy and I can't believe that he will be 2 in May!! Where does the time go?

So Good You'll Want S'more!

What you will need
(yes that is a Costco size jar of nutella-it lasts a long time and it comes in a pair) You can find nutella at most grocery stores. Here is my opinion about the fluff-the kind you buy in the store the Jett Puff kind is different than this one you see. I know- how is it possible, it is and this one is better. I buy it at Cost Plus Market Place, but I did find it another time at Bashas, but those are the only places I have found it and it was the same price.

Break your Graham in half

On one half spread some nutella on -don't be shy.
On the other spread some marshmallow fluff.

Put the two pieces together and enjoy.
It is soooo good, you won't want to eat just one. Go ahead, you know you want another.

Happy Valentine's Day

This was first thing in the morning. He is just like me-NOT a morning person. I love his shirt. The Beatles "All You Need Is Love" just for VDay.
This is Duncan's favorite place right now. He loves all things phones. He likes pens and paper. He climbs into this bar stool all by himself. I stopped trying to stop him and I just unplug the phone while he is playing up there, it is easier to let him play and loose interest than fight him to get down.
Here is the banner I made hung up.
I left this wreath up from Christmas and just embellished it a little with these simple hearts from Hobby Lobby each $.99 and the LOVE sign from Target dollar spot. Fun and simple and cheep!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. SWAK!!

Valentines project

I liked the paper that I got, it had a couple pages of vintage looking pictures from Valentines. (click on pictures to see better)

I like the lace under the red button, I just pletted it and glued and it turned out so well.
In January I was feeling very crafty and had gone to Michael's and saw this cute garland made of tied fabric and I thought- I could make that. Then I was looking at this children's book that had a Valentine's garland made of hearts and thought -I like that. And I came up with this idea to make a Valentine garland with both. I went to Michael's and found cute paper and then thought I can cut hearts out it will be fun. Then I discovered that I have a Cricut program that cuts hearts-Bonus!! I didn't have to do them by hand. My mom is really into making cards so I asked for her help and she not only helped me, but let me use most of her supplies.

So how did I do it? I picked the paper that I liked and used my cricut cutter and cut hearts of different sizes. I then glued them on to cereal boxes that I flattened out, and then cut them out again. This gives them some strength without making them too bulky or heavy and cereal boxes cut easily(plus it is recycling-always a good thing). I used glitter, buttons and all the fun things that my mom had. Each heart took some time to do. I really like how the glitter makes it pop. I went through my fabric and pulled out the pinks, whites and reds and tore them into strips, I used white cord that I got at Hobby Lobby. I hole punched a hole on each side of the heart and strung the cord through the back leaving spaces between each for the fabric and ribbon strips. Then I tied the ribbon and fabric in each section in no particular order or amount.

This project was cheaper than buying a garland. The paper came in a package and cost under $9, the cord was $2 and I had the fabric. After I finished I thought-I should have take pictures of how to make a heart. Next time. It is now hanging and I will put pictures up on another day of my Valentine's display.

What a Clown

This boy is getting to be too smart for his own good. He figures everything out. He pushed a stool over to the front door and unlocked it, but couldn't get it open (thank goodness) because he was in front of it. He can twist off a water bottle cap and put it back on. He thinks everything is a phone. I love that he is at the point where he has to have food in both hands. I remember when my nieces and nephews were like that, it was so cute. He is a curious little boy and loves to play and he loves to have fun. He keeps me busy.
