Sand, Surf and Sanibel Sunshine

We're off to Sanibel, Florida soon for some much needed sun! Good thing since the first official day of Spring was last week and it seems that Ohio did not get the memo.

This will be Cam's second time on an airplane and first to Sanibel. It's gonna be a lot of fun since he's walking now and can dip his little toes in the sand and surf. I anticipate some great Kodak moments!

Somewhere over the rainbow

St. Patrick's Day is this weekend so I came up with this cute yet super simple treat to give to Cam's little playgroup friends.

As with most things in crafting, my idea worked out perfectly in my head but when I put it all together in the treat bag it just didn't have the effect I was looking for.

Damn you Punxsutawney!

I just started taking a photography class and this week we are supposed to bring in a few photos that didn't quite work out how we intended to critique and discuss. I've got a ton of those to choose from so as I was sifting through them I came across this photo. It was taken at Stan Hywet Hall  last summer. I like it or dare I say, I love it! It's just so Springy and happy, full of color and life that I thought I'd share it (again) since March here in Ohio has definitely come in like a Lion!

Valentine's Day lollipop cards

Saturday I was finally able to finish up Cameron's Valentine's Day cards and get them in the mail!
Here's the final product!

I know this Valentine's card idea is not very original (it's all over Pinterest right now) but when I saw it I knew that's what I wanted to do. I guess the original/challenging part of the whole thing was attempting to get a 15 month old to 1. stand still for one second, 2. hold his arm out to the side, 3. look somewhat pleasant. Most of the cards I've seen have older kids on them. But I'm a sucker for a challenge and I want what I want so of course I set about torturing myself to get it done.

It's Project: Pinterest time!

Before I get started I just have to share this site I stumbled across a couple months ago. It's called Pinstrosity. It's a site where people can send in photos of their Pinterest recipes and crafts that, as the name suggests, were complete monstrosities. It is SO funny, SO good! Almost as good as my personal fave, Awkward Family Photos. Seriously peeps, check it out.
