Enjoying being a home-keeper today; beginning another bean sprout growing process and making granola bites. What is it about rainbow sprinkles that makes food look so much more deliciously delightful? Oh, that's right- rainbows. There are way too many recipes on pinterest that need to make my 'to-make' list!
This week, Liam got a little blister on his toe from all the jolly jumper excitement. Not a moment too soon, I decided he needed some shoes to wear (they will likely help him hop to unprecedented heights). The pattern is from Twirlybird on etsy, and was so easy to follow. I made them out of some denim I had from a pair of old jeans. I am dying to make her hightop boot pattern, too. That little boy might need a few pairs of each!
You guys. Last night Michael and I made the most deliciously sweet and tart dessert ever. These confetti cups look and taste like pure magical goodness. The cup is a sugar cookie and fruit loop combo, and the filling.... let's just say it involves a packet of ice blue raspberry lemonade kool-aid. I've heard it before, and I'll repeat it here: pinterest can easily ruin a waistline, but it does make for nice little cooking adventures. Do try these sometime this summer. Please.
This week's pinterest creation- a sewn stash basket! That purl bee site seriously has the best projects. This was so simple, and was just what I needed as I sat around with Liam in the air conditioning. The grey fabric was left over from his rocking chair cushion. This is my first attempt at keeping his toys and teethers contained, a battle that I'm sure will prove nonsensical.
I came across this pin a few months ago and had to hunt down some of these Ikea spice racks to repurpose into book shelves for Liam's room. Several weeks ago we took a road trip to Cincinnati and stopped at the Ikea out there to pick some up. To our great disappointment, they didn't have them anymore! Thankfully, a dear friend was inspired to do the same for her little girl's room, and had some extras. And thus, my pinterest project was saved!
