Easy Craft: Felt Farm

So let me just begin with the fact that I already typed out this post once and it disappeared when I tried to publish!  I'm sure you can imagine the death stare I was giving my computer.  It was lucky it didn't get thrown against the wall!  RRRRR!  So hopefully I won't forget anything in my frustrated typing. So as easy as this felt board is, it is also time consuming. One thing you'll need to understand is that you will be cutting each piece out 3 times.

The Mandi Plea!

OOOOH Mandi Well you came and you gave without taking, and I sent you away, oh Mandy, (omitted line because I really don't think Mandi wants to kiss me and stop me from shaking, lol), and I need you today, o000h Mandy.

Mandi I need you so bad I'm shaking!  It may also be a nervous tick from cringing every time I walk by my poor poor play room.  It is in the most desperate need of your assistance.  My play room has become the bane of my existence.  Let's see why!

Painted Mason Jars: Easy Peasy

Mason jars are big right now!  There are so many things you can do with these little beauties, the list is endless.  Wedding and home decor, picnic mugs, and light fixtures are just a few of the things you can do. Thanks to the addictive nature of Pinterest (blast you wonderful website!) I decided to paint some mason jars.  It was my daughters first birthday, which also happens to coincide with Cinco de Mayo, so we went with...yep you guessed it, a fiesta theme. Too predictable?  Well it was worth it.  Who doesn't want to hit a pinata, dress up like little muchachos, and eat tacos?
