Santa brought Caleb a diner for Christmas, (not a kitchen of course, that's girlie). Lol. I've been making him "food" for it ever since. One of the easiest and cutest things was...Pop-tarts!

Now I'd like to say that we don't normally have these in the house....but who am I kidding, my mother-in-law (the best) brings them little treats for Caleb. And yes, I'm guilty of indulging in them once in awhile too.

Different sheets of felt (light brown, white, and other colors)
Fabric markers
Sewing machine, thread

I just started off with two rectangular shapes of light brown felt. (You can make two pop-tarts from one piece of felt. Just cut in half lengthwise, and then again cross-wise.)

Sew around edge leaving an opening at the bottom to turn inside out.

Turn inside out and stitch closed.

Take a piece of white felt and cut out a piece that looks like this...

Then glue onto "pop-tart".

Take some fabric markers, and just dot all over the white "frosting" part for the sprinkles. I've seen other felt food like cupcakes, cookies and such, with beads stitched on for the sprinkles. But I think these look cute as is.


To make them even cuter I did the same thing as above but scalloped one corner to make it look like there was a bite taken out of it. Before I sewed the two pieces of felt together I slipped in a red piece of felt with the same scalloping as the "filling", (strawberry of course).

I'll post some more "food" projects that I've done later. Enjoy your weekend!

Got Milk?

I sure do!

In fact, so much that I'm planning on donating it. There is just no way that my sweet little piggy is going to be able to consume all this liquid gold by the time it "expires".

I found this website which lists all the Milk Banks in America. I'm now just waiting for the milk bank to get back to me to see if I'd be an eligible donor. I sure hope I am. I'd love to be able to help out a precious little baby with my milk.

Not to mention I could use the extra space in my freezer for some frozen Costco goodies. :)

Felt flower headbands

I had made this little felt flower for a random headband that I had found. My hair's brown, so next time I would choose a different color but brown was the color of my headband at the time.

My first try on the flower was a bit too big for my headband. But perfect for Ry-pie's. Hers and hers headbands. Super cute!

For each flower:
You'll need a total of 6 felt rounds. (Any size you choose, but all the same size).
Needle and thread
Plus headband and glue to put flower on.

Take your first two felt rounds and stack them.

Take your next felt round and fold in half like this

Then fold again into quarters like this

Stitch center tip of quartered round onto center of two stacked rounds.

Repeat with remaining 3 rounds. (Make several stitches around the tips a few times, just to make sure they're secure).

My stitching in the center isn't very pretty but you won't be able to see the stitching when your done anyways.

Just fluff up a bit and you're done.

Then position and glue onto headband. (I used a cream colored ribbon headband I made for Ry-pies, and two small flowers for my headband.)

Cal J's Art

When we've seen enough of my sons artwork on the fridge I've been stashing it in a pretty accordion type file folder (which is busting at the seams). It's amazing how many drawings and paintings he has done in his not quite 4 years of life. I saw this idea from prudent baby and thought it would be such a neat way to showcase his art work.

Bonus...cute and inexpensive gifts for the grandparents (and a set for us too). Woo-hoo.

Valentine's Day cookies

So I had this idea to decorate the (already made) chocolate dipped oreo cookies. Simple, easy, cute. Well.....I couldn't find the choco dipped one's anywhere. Are they seasonal? Discontinued? I was heart broken. I still wanted to make them so instead I decided to make my own. Great idea right? Right! Except by the time I was done dipping them I was a little burnt out so my actual "decorating" is a little lack-luster. Oh well, they sure do taste good!





Done...and Delicious.

Valentine's Day Cards

So I've seen these all over the place. You can find it here

I thought it came out so cute. Except for the fact that now every time my 3 year old wants to throw a punch, I have to gently remind him that there is "no punching". He then not-so-gently reminds me that he's not punching, he's just putting his fist out to hold his lolly pop, like on his Valentine's Day card. Right...sure...3 year olds!

a bookworm?

I saw this super cute onesie idea and decided to give it a try. I love nerds!

She makes a pretty cute little librarian.
