A Little Show and Tell from Blogland

I’m working on a few things around here to share with you later in the week, 
{hoping for that big kitchen cabinet reveal} 
but today I thought I’d share what I’ve spotted in Blogland.
How many of you feed your little ones straight off the tables of restaurants? I’m guilty, even though it grosses me out every time! I used to buy the disposable mats but, to be honest, got tired of spending the money on them. Well, Gwen, over at Gwenny Penny made this adorable “Out to Eat Place Mat” that rolls up and ties into a little package small enough to fit in any purse or bag.
So clever and so cute!
Look at this pretty  Easter snack. Can you guess what they are made from?
Homespun With Love made these speckled egg treats from Pop Tarts! They would be great for an Easter party or Easter egg hunt snack! And they are super easy!

How ’bout some Speckled Egg Cookies?
Not only would the kids love to eat these, but they would love to make them too! A squeeze bottle is used to splatter chocolate on egg-shaped cookies. Kids LOVE squirting bottles and making messes. In this case, it’s acceptable and delicious!

You can find a tutorial for making these goodies at The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle.

Birds seem to be everywhere lately! Look at this cutie made by Andrea at Charcoal and Crayons!

Go take a look at how to make these darling Scrappy Sparrows.

And finally, I’m loving the shape, simplicity and textures of this Square Burlap Wreath.

You must stop by Suzanne at Pieced Pastimes to find out how she created the texture of the white fabric. Really cool!

Well, there you have it. A few things that I’ve loved in Blogland today. I hope you’ll stop by and check out each of the tutorials!

  1. I saw the placemat online as well, and thought it would be a cute "craft" next year, but realized that it required sewing…

  2. Those are darling ideas!
    I could spend the entire day looking at crafts and getting good ideas and shopping for those good ideas…..not saying that I've EVER spent the ENTIRE day looking at crafty blogs or anything like that…..eh hem.
