{DIY} BACK-TO-SCHOOL APPLE MARSHMALLOW POPS

Back-to-school Apple Marshmallow Pops by TheMarshmallowStudio

Wowzers, this summer has flown by!!

Time to switch gears and get ready for my favorite part of the year – Fall and Winter. Sure I love having the kiddos at home, all the outdoor nights eating s’mores, and the hot water fun but there’s something magical about the leaves turning and the weather cooling down that makes me feel all giddy inside.

This year I’m particularly excited for back-to-school season. My boys are 3.5 and 5 years old. One will go into his second year in preschool and my other will go into Kindergarten. They are both finally going to be going to the same school and having the same schedule. Woohoo!! I’m that mom that make special gifts for the teachers and sends in special treats every special occasion. Teachers like me, haha!

To quick off this school year with A+ extra credit parent points, I’m going to be making my boy’s teachers baskets full of Apple Marshmallow Pops.

Making these pops is like second nature to me. I’ve been making marshmallow pops and art for over four years now.  Today you’re in luck my friend…. I’m going to teach you how to WOW your kid’s teachers too!

{DIY} FATHER’S DAY EASY MARSHMALLOW POPS

 Father's Day MM Pops by TheMarshmallowStudio

June is Dairy Month, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month, Seafood Month and Turkey Lover’s Month…. but all I can think about in June is Father’s Day!

I have so many wonderful memories with my dad. I am lucky to say that he has been a great father to me and my siblings.

Now that I have children, he’s proven to also be an amazingly loving and fun grandpa or “abuelito” as we would say in Spanish. Every year we celebrate him with a little cake, lots of hugs, kisses and by reminding him how much we love and appreciate him :)

PASTEL COLORS FOR EASTER DESSERTS!

Easter _ TMS

Wah-lah! A whole desserts table decorated with marshmallows perfect for an Easter or Springtime get-together. This is my latest project for KRAFT Jet-Puffed marshmallows. It’s always fun to go above and beyond and make a whole table rather than just one piece. I had a blast playing stylist and eating those yummy cupcakes afterwards ;)

EPIC FAIL & SURPRISING RECOVERY!

This is a funny post… I’d love to sit here and tell you that all my ideas come out great and I never have total disasters but that would would be one big fat lie! There are times when I’m bored or feel overly creative and get these coo coo random marshmallow ideas. Sometimes they are cool and sometimes they leave me thinking “OMG, what the heck was I thinking”. The cool stuff is what makes it to the blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, on and on. Then the not-so-proud of stuff gets stashed somewhere in The Studio hidden from the public eye. It’s true! 

Well, I decided it was time to share with you one of my all-time epic fail projects = Hot Chocolate sticks

<<< This is the pretty one…. see below for the full story >>>

KEIRAN’S “NATURE MONKEY” 1ST BDAY PARTY

Nature-Inspired Organic Monkey 1st Birthday Party

Date: Saturday, February 25, 2012

   

From the moment my son Keiran first looked at me with his big brown eyes we’ve called him our little monkey. When it was time to decide the theme for his 1st birthday party, it was an obvious choice. Although I wanted a sweet monkey party, I didn’t want it to be fantasy jungle or cartoonish monkey. I opted for very nature-inspired elements, with lots of browns and greens, bananas, and rustic decorations which were captured beautifully by the lense of Iliana from Iliana Morton Photography.

She is a fabulous mega talented graphic designer and party stylist. Her parties are off the charts so when she asked me to design a special piece to go with her Wicked Annual Halloween Party printables…. I didn’t even have to think about it. (more…)
