So I decided on a Robot theme for my baby's nursery. I decided on a color scheme of gray, navy, light blue and orange. I bought some blank canvases at Hobby Lobby this morning. They were on sale... score! It took me 6 hours to paint the 3 canvases. Not too bad. Now I have some art to hang on the wall in my nursery. Slowly, very slowly the room is coming together. I have about 13 weeks left before Davis arrives and I still have so much to do. I am planning on painting the crib a Navy Blue color and I'd love to hang some shelving.

We've seen these lovely candy cane lollipops everywhere... on blogs, on tv, in magazines... so we thought we'd try our hand at some. We had some large strawberry flavored candy canes left over from Christmas that I thought would be yummy. We already had some red candy melts so we were set.
When they were all cooled off they were ready to eat. YUM!

When I was little we used to make elaborate Valentine's Boxes to collect all of our school Valentine's in. Well, I wanted to keep the tradition and make one for my daughter. We found some really cute Mermaid valentines at Target so we decided to use that as our theme.

Aren't these "Nilla Girls" so much fun? I found this delightful idea over at Flexible Dreams blog. I just happened upon her blog and loved this idea of dipping nilla wafers into melted chocolate for the hair and drawing faces on them with food coloring markers. Oh and aren't the little heart bows just too cute? Love.

It's been way too long since I have been involved in my Etsy shop. One of my goals this year is to stock my shop with many of my creations... mainly so I can afford to keep my daughter in dance... ha ha. I hope you will check it out and pass along the word to anyone you think might be interested!

I hope you aren't sick of seeing projects made with old book pages, because I am having so much fun making all sorts of things with them. I have been making these paper roses out of book pages... they are so addicting to make.

My girls and I whipped up a batch of these Whoopie Pies. I found the recipe in Family Fun Magazine and thought they looked like fun. They were simple to make. The frosting was a little too sweet so we added some cherry flavoring to it and voila... much tastier!
