I am delighted to introduce to you a spankin’ new dessert cookbook, No-Bake Treats!
This is one, besides being filled with delicious recipes… is filled with NO-BAKE recipes!!! That’s like a double win for me haha
This will be our first summer living on an island. An island where it’s not 120° degrees outside like it was in Las Vegas for about half of the year! This means lots of outdoor time ahead for us. It’s also the first time the boys are off of school for the whole summer. They’ve been in year-round schools since preschool. This means momma is going to need some help keeping them entertained.
It’s important for me to not just keep them busy but to see them learn new things and to build beautiful memories together all while having fun.
Haha! Well, I got a little secret weapon.
I know of an online store that I can always find what I need and even things I didn’t know I needed LOL. Trust me, there’s nothing as valuable as a one-stop shop with affordable prices and huge product selection when life’s busy enough. I’ve been shopping at Oriental Trading for all my parties and special occasion events for many years now.
Let’s go down memory lane…..
All these parties feature fabulous goodies from Oriental Trading:
This summer is going to be legen(wait for it)dary! The sun, the water, the new house and the goodies that I got my eye on:
Oooooohhh awesome…. I just found a bunch of summer fun posts that I’d LOVE to try!
As you can tell, OT and I have been partners in crime for a long time? I bet we’ll continue to be until I stop partying and crafting (which will probably be never, haha).
So what fun do you have planned for this summer besides eating lots of s’mores, of course?
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know can already guess the answer to this question…. Where have I been?
The truth is that I’ve been going through a nightmare for the past two years (more on that later). However, I couldn’t be more happy to tell you that we’re in a better place now.
Back at the end of April we moved to a small quiet island in the state of Washington. Life is sweet here, let me tell ya!
You can expect to see some home decorating posts with before + after shots + DIYs, crafts and more. Who’s excited?!
Meanwhile, I leave you here with a tease of what’s to come….
There is no lack of inspiration for cute food, crafts and home projects during Spring and Easter.
Just look at the fun projects I’ve done right around this time in the past few years:
Sure, it’s pretty sweet to receive a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day…..
but receiving a handmade Box of Marshmallow “Chocolates” is 2,100,8547,962,458,920 times better!!!
In the past years, I’ve made tons of recipes, crafts and DIY tutorials for KRAFT JET-PUFFED Marshmallows. I’ve done projects from crazy-elaborate marshmallow showpieces, to simple recipes to cupcake toppers and I wanted to switch things up a little for 2016. This year I’ll be showing you how to make utilize marshmallows to make all kinds of fun treats that anyone can recreate. My goal is for you to have a blast and create memories with your family and friends with them.
First up in my series of DIYs are these super-cool
MARSHMALLOW & WHITE CHOCOLATE SNOWFLAKES.
My kids LOVE painting, crafting, building stuff, baking, and… of course, decorating marshmallows. You can often see them involved in my blog posts and Instagram posts.
I keep their supplies separate from mine to make sure they don’t end up grabbing something they’re not supposed to, loosing my stuff, breaking something or even getting hurt. They have their own paints box, craft paper box, baking supplies box and now they’ll have their own sugar crafting box!
I am crazy about organization (as you may have noticed in my Studio Tour post) and I’m always looking for storage solutions to help me save space but keep things separated and organized.
Just when you thought you had my next marshmallow cupcake decorating tutorial all figured out….
I surprise you with an unexpected twist!
Are you like me when you see something at the store that your BFF must have so you snap a photo and text it to them?
That’s kindda what happened at BlogHer Food last month. When I saw this awesome coffee maker machine, I pulled out my handy phone, snapped a photo and sent it to my hubs… who happens to be my BFF too!
