Candycane Garden Planting Kit - could be left by Elf on the Shelf - oatmeal dirt, candy cane sprinkles for fertilizer, candy cane seeds are mints.  The next day after it is planted, add large candy canes to the bowl as if they sprouted from the seeds. by eliza

If you are like me, you are tired of all the candy and junk that comes home on Valentines Day! It is just as bad as Halloween, I swear. Last year I decided to make my kids non-candy Valentines. I found these cute mazes on 90% clearance last year at Walmart. I was able to buy over 60 mazes for less than $2! Talk about penny pinching. So I bought them last year planning ahead. Glad I did. I threw these together in a short amount of time. I made 48, for my 1st graders class and 3rd graders class... by darlene

These candy cane brownies are the perfect Christmas brownies. They start with fudgy chewy brownies, then they're topped with a thick layer of creamy peppermint frosting and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. #christmasbrownies #peppermintbrownies #candycanebrownies #candycanes by rosebud2

Candy Cane Hearts - I used to make these when my son was in elementary school for his classmates.  Don't think it would go over so well now that he is in high school but they would be cute to put in cellophane bags & use as package toppers :) by LiveLoveLaughMyLife

After we got the Christmas tree up this weekend we had a “Baby’s First Christmas” photo shoot with Caroline. I thought I’d share the details on how I took these pictures in case any of you are looking for instructions on how to photograph your kids in front of the Christmas lights this year. Here is my favorite picture straight outta the camera: To get this shot I used a tripod with my camera settings on the following: ISO: 100 {Read More} by meredith

this will be great for the kids' halloween party to balance all the sweets!! (used this as Halloween treats for my piano students last year. Take note--not as easy as they seem. The oils in the skin mean sharpies and even paint pens don't work very well. I ended up having to use an actual pain brush. They were uber cute, though.) by daisy

Last year when Debbie sent us a bunch of Kaffe Fassett fabric for her month in the Threads Together Quilting Bee, I made this log cabin block for her, and decided I wanted to make a whole quilt just like that. I collected fabrics, I even washed them, but then they just sat there. Until yesterday. After the Modern Quilt Guild meeting, I felt a push to work on something, and this was sitting there waiting for me!
