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!}

Birds On A Branch {Handprint Kid Craft}


Birds On A Branch {Handprint Kid Craft}

Did you see my contributor post over at A Night Owl Blog? If you didn't - be sure to check it out because it's pretty OWL-TASTIC {If I do say so myself!} If you like that kid friendly craft, you will probably like today's post just as much. This has a "bird" theme to it - but it's pretty much the same concept. With a blank canvas, some paint and a handprint {or two} - you too can make this "birds on a branch" art with your child today. {Cause making keepsakes like this is a MUST!}

Paper Scrap Birthday Cards {Craft Idea} #StickyU

Today I'm sharing a CREATIVE way to use up those paper scraps you just CAN'T bear to throw away. {You know you are a paper hoarder like I am!} I personally LOVE to make & send cards to friends & family on various occassions. It's just an extra, personal step I like to do and it means more than a simple text, facebook message or email.
