Framed Easter Bunny Silhouette

Sadly, it was time to take down Campbell's birthday decorations and look towards Easter.  And then it occurred to me.  I have no Easter decorations.  Whoops.  Better take care of that...

I got out my trusty blue frame and cut some burlap to fit.

Next, I found an image of a bunny, traced it on freezer paper, and cut it out with my X-acto knife.
(this is my go to method for a lot of projects! easy!)

Then, I ironed my newly created bunny stencil on to my burlap.

I added a little white paint

and when it dried and the stencil was removed I had this!

I turned over my burlap and my frame and stapled the burlap with my staple gun.

I thought I'd dress my bunny up a bit with a cotton ball and some left over ribbon from my Easter gifts.

And there you have it!

I finally have an Easter decoration!

Happy Easter!

A Quick and Easy Easter Gift

Warner's last day of preschool before Spring Break was this past Wednesday.  I made these little gifts for his friends and teachers in maybe 10 minutes total.  They are that easy!

Since we have a lot of allergies in our class, I decided to go with this Egg Chalk for his friends that I found at Wal-Mart.

For his teachers I wanted something that sort of resembled an egg and thought this EOS lip balm would be perfect.  Besides, who doesn't love this stuff?!  (If you haven't tried it, pick some up for yourself!)

Instead of spending time making labels, I just printed these ready made ones from here
I was out of cardstock, so I printed them on photo paper.  

Next, I put some grass in a clear bag.

Finally, I inserted the treat and added some ribbon and a label .

Easy, cute, and non time consuming!

Happy Easter!

One Year Old {IN A FLASH}!

This past weekend we celebrated Campbell's first birthday with a "One Year Old In a Flash" (cameras and pictures) theme.  I couldn't have been more please with how it turned out.    



My. Oh. My.
How Time Does Fly!
How Could One Year
Have Already Gone By?

Happy 1st Birthday, Campbell!

May the good Lord be with you

Down every road you roam

And may sunshine and happiness

surround you when you're far from home

And may you grow to be proud

Dignified and true

And do unto others

As you'd have done to you

Be courageous and be brave

And in my heart you'll always stay

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young, Forever Young

May good fortune be with you

May your guiding light be strong

Build a stairway to heaven

with a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain

and in my heart you will remain

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young

Forever Young

And when you finally fly away

I'll be hoping that I served you well

For all the wisdom of a lifetime

No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose

I'm right behind you, win or lose

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young, Forever Young

Forever Young, Forever Young

One year ago today, at 9:04 am, we were blessed for the second time. Another beautiful boy was entrusted to us. I had the normal "can I love two children?" apprehension, but the second he was placed in my arms it all vanished away.

Campbell, we love you more than you'll ever know. You are Mommy's sweet love, Daddy's stinker pink, and Warner's biggest fan. Our hearts are so full.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy!

We love you!
