Hey there, watch out, this weekend I was productive!   
2 project + tutorials, stained my deck which I loathe, cleaned out my office and planted my garden.
I'm so thankful to get to host mothers day! I love my mom & I love that she appreciates fun things,
So let the DIY begin! I gold foil dotted these classes for the table setting.
I think these cups would be cute on display in a kitchen.

I made these glasses for around $18, for 8. 
I picked my glasses up at TJ Maxx 4 glasses for $6
Check there for cheap glasses first!

Here's what you need:
Foil  Pen like this

Shake the pen well, blot on a paper towel or paper.
Lightly make dot the sides of the glass, I did more on top and than faded it as I went down the cup.  
I ran the gold pen around the rim, note I would recommend using a straw only for these cups.
Place and straw and your done! Simple & darling.

Happiest of Earth Days to you! 
My favorite childhood memory was getting to make dirt cake in elementary school.
How could one go wrong with dirt cake? Answer: you can't!

Just in case you missed what's in dirt cake:

Crushed oreos
Chocolate pudding
more crushed oreos
WORMS! gummy worms

Add a cute little sign like this if you'd like. 

Now go plant some carrots, enjoy this treat, and be thankful for this BEAUTIFUL earth!
We live in a beautiful place, which I'm so grateful for!

Who loves a easy recipe? Me, me, me!
This is literally the easiest recipe. It's a box of cake, milk, eggs, butter & peaches.
That's it, amazed, I am! Skip the boxed cake ingredients & use these instead.

Boxed cake (any flavor)
1 1/4 Cups of Milk
4 Eggs (add one more extra egg than the box recipes calls for)
1 1/2 Sticks of Butter
Canned Peaches or Fresh

1 Tablespoon Buttermilk
1 Tablespoon Orange juice
1 Tablespoon Peach juice (from the can)
Powered Sugar about 2 cups

Mix cake mix, eggs, milk, and butter. Butter and flour the bundt cake pans. Fill the bundt cake pan 3/4 full, places peaches on the bottom, I covered the bottom of the cake batter. I baked these for 16 minutes, until they were lightly brown, let them cool, flip the pan over and gently tap the pan until bundt cakes fall out.

I made this little gold foil banner to stick on top,
just cut out a banner from google clip art & added dots & lettering.
You can find a gold foil pen at Hobby Lobby

I love a good productive weekend!
This weekend we got a ton done on the kitchen.
We finished grouting, hung the stainless steel hood, shelving, outlets back on,
painted the pantry, that gorgeous blue color, which I was avoiding the store so I ended up mixing colors, and got that gorgeous blue, organized the pantry, cleaned the garden beds,
bought our veggie seeds for our garden....

...... Oh and......

Managed to bust the top of our glass stove, er, I mean the husband knelt on it 
and it shattered.... The entire thing. So that resulted in us going and buying a new stove.
So a new stainless steel stove is on its way to our house, even though that wasn't in the budget,
Like at all, at least we have all new, matching, appliances? There's always a bright side?

We still have some trim work to do above the cabinets,
We're going to do something like this, but we're leaving that till last
And we have one cabinet that needs a special order door, blah,

But hooray! we're making progress, and that I love.

Hello, I'm a slacker, as in like life has been super busy & I haven't had time to craft,
Well, this morning I woke up before work & hurry and got ready so I could put these together.
These little egg shell succulents! So darling & so so so easy, and by easy I mean like 15 minutes easy.
I put a set together for my window & as a gift to my sister.

Succulent (or clippings)
Egg Carton

Crack the top portion of the egg, clean the egg out with just warm water. Let dry.
I used a small spoon to place the dirt inside the egg, fill half way, add water & the succulent.
Fill the rest of the egg with dirt, and place in reused egg carton.

Aren't these just darling? I'll be adding a gold flag, tag that says happy easter, and twine!
Happy easy Easter crafting!
