Tutorial Tuesday: Striped Easter Eggs

So things have been a bit crazy around here. We put our house on the market last month, and sold it in two days. After weeks of house hunting we decided that we are going to build our next house. But it won't be done until August, and we need to be out of our current house in May. So we will be living with family this summer, and I won't be able to have my studio set up during that time. And with packing up our current house and trying to keep up with my kids' crazy schedules it's getting harder to keep up with orders, so my shop will be closing this week. (All open orders will be shipped asap.) I will be re-opening sometime this fall after we've moved into our new house and after my kids start school. So if there's something you really need be sure to order right away! And thank you all so much for your support!

I'll try to keep up with the blog if time allows.

This week I want to share the cutest Easter eggs with you. These darling striped Easter eggs are super cute, and easy to do too!

You can find instructions here.

Tutorial Tuesday: Charging Station

This week I'm featuring a charging station tutorial from Sew-Mad.

When my cell phone is charging
it generally has to sit
on my kitchen or bathroom counter
in order to be out of reach of little hands.
And I'm always worried that it will get wet.
This charging station would solve that problem perfectly!

What a brilliant idea!

Tutorial Tuesday: Valentine Boxes

Valentine's Day is next week!
Some of you, like me, may have children
who are supposed to decorate their own Valentine box.

There's always a contest for the best box,
so we feel some pressure to do something extra special.
Here are some fun ideas from my Valentine's Day page on Pinterest!

I absolutely love this Monster Box!

These cereal box Valentine holders are easy to make.

This basketball Valentine hoop is so fun, and this link has several other ideas too.

This crocodile box is another one that would be easy to make, but is super cute.

Another really cute monster box!

My son won the Valentine box contest with this Ipod Valentine box!

And this year he wants to make some sort of video arcade Valentine box like this, I guess we'll see if we can pull it off!

Tutorial Tuesday: Ruffle Scarf

Wow, it's been a while! I have to admit that I got a tiny bit distracted from my little blog by pinterest. So many ideas, and so easy to re-pin great ideas! So if you'd like to see what I think was worth pinning, come check out my pinterest boards here.

Today I want to share a little tutorial that I think is especially cute! And perfect for the winter that is finally here (not that I minded our unusually warm winter the past few months!!!).

Today's tutorial is a ruffle scarf from Pink Lemonade.

What do you think? Is it not one of the cutest scarves ever?!
