Fishbowl {Kid Craft} #CraftandCleanUp

As you all know - my favorite crafts to do, involve my son. I just LOVE seeing his face light up, as we do something artsy {and sometimes messy} together. Even if it's the simplest thing EVER - he thinks it's pretty grand!

Recently we made this fishbowl craft after watching the movie "Nemo" together. {My son is starting to get an obsession w/fish} Although we aren't "ready" to take the next step and get a fishbowl of our own - I love our "handprint" fish that is currently hanging out on our fridge for everyone to see.

Chocolate, Cranberry, Banana Bread Cookies {Recipe}


Chocolate, Cranberry, Banana Bread Cookies {Recipe}

Before we get to the delicious Chocolate, Cranberry, Banana Bread Cookie recipe - let's talk about weather. Shall we?

Wyoming actually has been {dare I say} tolerable this summer. Most Wyoming houses don't have AC {including ours} and I'm starting to realize why. The last few summers that we have lived here, have been brutal w/the heat and they said that was abnormal. {winters were mild too} But this past year, it seemed to snow A LOT and rather late into the season. My guess is that all the snow we had this past winter, made for a mild summer? Maybe I shouldn't have complained about "what seemed like" the never ending snow......

For the past few weeks, I have seen some fellow craft bloggers playing with the NEW Mod Podge Collage Clay. After seeing all their wonderful posts and craft ideas - I decided I wanted to play with some too. {It's like permanent frosting for your crafts!} So I headed to my local Michaels to scoop some up.

Easy Coffee Popsicles {Recipe}


Easy Coffee Popsicles {Recipe}

Let me just come out and say it - I'm a self-proclaimed coffee lover. {Are you?} I don't have a cup EVERY day, but I do enjoy a nice big cup {or three} a week. It's my definition of a treat, that also gives me a boost of energy when I need it. And since it's summer and we are melting away, a nice iced latte for this mama is much appreciated and usually my go-to beverage when I need a pick-me-up. Take it one step further - a frozen coffee treat is absolutely AMAZING and my new favorite indulgence during that previous naptime. Hence - how this EASY Coffee Popsicle recipe came along and why this very post was written. {Cause you NEED to make them too!}
