Cyclops Valentines

My son is currently OBSESSED with Greek Mythology, so I wanted to design a fun Valentine to reflect that.
We came up with this cute Cyclops Valentine:

It says "{eye} Think You're Awesome!".
Get it?

They were super easy to make, and my son had a lot of fun helping me put them together. All you need to do is buy some googly eyes and suckers. We found both at Target, plus the eyes had adhesive on the back, so no need for glue! If anyone else wants the printable I made, you can get it HERE. For best results, print onto a thicker paper, like card stock. To attach the suckers/lollypops, I just cut a little slit in the hand with an X-Acto knife.

Chocolate Chip Scones

These Skinny Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones have become a new weekend favorite of ours. They are super easy to make and much healthier than donuts!
And...who doesn't like chocolate for breakfast?
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Upcycled T-shirt Flowers

I've noticed that I get a lot of traffic to my blog looking to learn how to make t-shirt flowers.
For my flowers (like below), I used this tutorial, but with t-shirt fabric. Also, I cut my pieces in more of a heart shape when folded, so when they are opened, they look like flowers with petals, instead of circles. I also DO sew them together, along with using glue, for extra strength. Does that make sense?;)

Here are a few more t-shirt tutorials that look like fun:

Happy Birthday Hunter!

Our puppy turned 3 today!
She's supposed to start to calm down now, right?;)
The kids forced me to make a birthday cake for her because we did last year. I guess we started a new tradition. We found a recipe made with bananas online....the dogs loved it!

Yum, Yum!
Happy Birthday Hunter!
We love you!
