Easter Bunny Treat Bags {Craft DIY}

Happy Spring everyone!  We here in Texas are lovin' this great weather but many of my peeps are also suffering from seasonal allergies.  Boooooo!  I feel their pain.  I used to be in the same boat month after month.  Anywho, let's get to my latest creation.  I will be the first to admit that it did not quite turn out the way I pictured it in my head but my two cute handy sidekicks gave me their "thumbs ups" approval.  Yay me. 

I made these bags pretty much the same way I made my Halloween treat bags.  I bought the small, pale blue gift sacks from Michael's with my 40% off coupon.  Yes, I always use coupons if the item is not on sale.  :) I made a fold on each bag to give me a mark for the ears.

I then used a bunny ear template from AllKidsNetwork except I didn't use the bigger ears on their template.  They were too big for this bag.  I used the smaller ears to make my outer and inner ears.  Basically, I used their small ear as a template for a smaller ear. Clear as mud? See here:

I then cut thin strips of card stock paper for the whiskers.  I grouped them together after cutting to glide the glue stick over them, then attached to the paper bag.

I used this cone-shaped paper punch to make the nose for my hunny bunny.  I just snipped the pointy part off.

As for the eyes, I used my 3/4" round paper punch and used two different colored card stock paper.  I glued them on top of the other and left dropped the black eyes a little to make it look more eye-like. Sorry no picture here but it is the same hole puncher I used in the Halloween treat bags.

Before attaching the cute cottontail I assembled the face on the front side.  I drew the mouth on with a black marker.  I used a cotton ball to glue on the back of the bag.  I left the bag face down for a few minutes to let it adhere properly.  And that's it!  Once you are done, filler up with some fun Easter goodies and seal with an Easter sticker.  My little one is super excited to pass these out to her preschool classmates. :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
