Easter Egg Wreath with Washi Tape


My kids have been chomping at the bit with our recent
snow fall and lack of outdoor play, so I asked them to help
me with this project. They sorted out fun colored plastic eggs
and wrapped Washi Tape around the openings, while I
wrapped and hot glued everything onto the wreath. 


I didn't have enough of the blue organza to wrap the 
entire wreath, so I pulled out some green paper grass to
fill in the gap. A chevron ribbon left over from a diaper
cake was added before I finished up with the grass. 

I had to put my OCD aside with the washi tape on the 
eggs but the kids did a fantastic job and kept their
creative hands busy for a few minutes, hooray!

A bit of hot glue strategically placed on the eggs and 
taadaa...a finished wreath. I love the fun pops of color
throughout and that we had everything on hand, 
so no trips to the craft store were needed.

Hoppy Easter Footprint Card



If you're looking for a quick and cute way to impress
the Grand or Great GrandParents this Easter
and you happen to have a little one to use as a human stamp,
then try your hand at this cute Hoppy Easter handmade card!


I used my 9-1/2 month old's wee little bunny foot and inked
it up with a bit of craft ink (it washed right off with soap and
water, as soon as we were finished stamping) and then sprinkled
white embossing powder on the image. After heat embossing her
sweet little foot, I used a brayer to roll the blue background onto 
my white cardstock. I guess I could've just used a blue cardstock
instead but I was trying to go for a different look...

I then took a piece of dry swiffer, to buff the blue ink off of her
footprint and then started on the rest of my card. I wanted the card
to say Hoppy Easter, so I just combined two stamps and voila, 
a new saying! The 'from your little bunny' I printed off of my
computer and stuck everything down with doubled sided sticky
tape & snail adhesive.

I hope our Greats and Grands love it as much as I do!

Vintage Circus Unisex Nursery Wall Art

After trying to locate all of the nursery photos to share with a friend 
the other day, I realized that I have not properly written a full post 
and shared photos, now that the nursery is completely done. 

The baby will be 9 months the end of this month, can't believe
it!! These photos were taken when she was a little bigger than a
newborn, 14 days old. She was a stinker and stayed awake
almost the entire photo shoot but I LOVE how they turned out.


The wooden Circus banner I found on Pottery Barn Kids for
a steal! Only $10 with free shipping, I couldn't pass it up!


The little red shelves are from Hobby Lobby, the perfect
planking of the repurposed window that I found on the curb
in Newport - thank you hubby for fixing it up a bit!

My LeroyLime Workspace

Well, I guess you could say, you can't pinch me in my LeroyLime workspace, 
as my pop of color amidst all the white is non other than GREEN!!

and since Spring is right around the corner, a bit of organization inspiration
for you all - sit back, check it out, enjoy & pop over if you want to create
or just gab over a cup of coffee!






I'm not going to lie...my desk RARELY looks like that
but I just moved a few things to a folding table I use every
now and again when I have large projects I'm working on.

My carpet is either littered with baby toys or cleared for 
my workouts. Where I'm standing to take the photos, 
there isn't a wall, it's an open room, which makes it a nice
space for me to work. I can still be present, not hidden 
away and my kiddos are extremely good about keeping
their tiny paws off Mama's goodies!

I'd love to hear what you think...comments with any questions
you have about something you're struggling with organizing in
your craft room or home. I'd love to help!

DIY Baby Food

I'm no foodie BUT I had to post about this...it only took me 4 
kiddos to finally make my own baby food and WOW, was it ever easy!

One of my friends said, "if you can boil water, you
can make baby food" and she was right!

I didn't have ice cube trays, so decided to use the
next best thing...a mini cupcake tin
I used a small cookie scoop to dish them up, 
covered with cellophane and popped the entire tray
in the freezer. In the morning, I popped the frozen 
balls out of the tray and put them in a ziplock freezer bag.

I put a few in the fridge for the next day in small baby containers
and they are the perfect size to reheat and add a bit of rice cereal to
to thicken as desired.


- Applesauce -
My first batch of apples, I didn't add anything spices to
but my second batch I added a bit of cinnamon and
she gobbled them up!


- Broccoli and Carrots -
I just brought the water to a boil, steamed the 
veggies for about six minutes and then threw it in
the mini food processor, it blended perfectly.


- Butternut Squash -
I added a bit of butter and a teaspoon of orange juice
to each half after cleaning out the seeds
and placed this in the oven open side up
covered with tin foil.
Bake for 1-1/2 hrs at 350.

Robot Party Decor




I had a friend request a banner and cupcake toppers for a 
Robot baby shower she was hosting. A robot WHAT?..I said, haha.

I pulled out my ONE robot stamp, matched the colors to the
baby's room and thought everything turned out pretty cute!

Just listed these in my etsy shop, so if you're hosting a 
robot party, you've got a place to look!

and thank you to my friend Megan, for snapping a few photos
