How to Make a Felt Strawberry

Its hard trying to find good birthday present ideas. So when I went shopping to find her some play food I found that the food was cheaply made and expensive. While inspecting the food I realized that it wouldn't be hard to make it myself. So I went home and created this felt strawberry.

First you will want to cut a circle out of red felt and fold it in half as seen in picture 2.
Then you will want to sew the straight end shut with red thread.
Now turn the felt right side out and take black thread and sew seeds on it.
Stuff with cotton and sew the top shut.
Next cut a top out of green felt and sew it on.
Now you have your own felt strawberry for your children to play with!

Hand Made Banner

Recently my parents celebrated their 28th Anniversary. I really wanted to decorate the house, but I could not find a banner that said Happy Anniversary. So I took scrapbook paper, card stock, and cream colored computer paper and made a banner. I chose the font I liked and printed it out on cream colored paper. Now the hard part is cutting the circles and gluing them on to scrapbook and colored card stock. I attached them together with tape on the back and on the front where they are overlapping I used a glue stick to make sure it was secure.

Brother's Bedroom

 My brother' room turned out perfect. I cost me nothing to paint his room. While the pictures do not do the wall color justice I thought I would post them anyway. We had left over dutch boy paint from Menards and the color was called bamboo. In reality it was more of a sand color. The first picture is a lamp my dad my for him and the rest are just stuff in his room. I think that this was a successful room remodel!

Lemon Cake

With spring almost here I always look for desserts that that have a lighter flavor. The cake I made here is a lemon cake (I used box mix and frosting). I simply frosted the cake and added a shell border (tip 21). To top it off I twisted a slice of lemon and added mint leaves. Although I did not do this last time I would suggest refrigerating your cake.

Cozy Home Scenes: Easter Egg Cakes

Cozy Home Scenes: Easter Egg Cakes

Saw this cute cake idea while on the internet and had to share it with you

Anne of Green Gables

The movie I recomend this week is the Anne of Green Gables Series. This movie set is perfect for both boys and girls.The first two movies are perfect for children, but the third movie takes place in the war and might be to violent for young children. Overall I recommend you watch Anne of Green Gables on your next family movie night.
