Mother’s Day Printable

DSC_0065 copy

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! As a mom I adore the sweet little gifts I receive from my kiddos. I have had many breakfasts in bed that I would have to say were very interesting… but endearing. These past few weeks, I have been brainstorming with my good friend Holly, and we came up with this fun Mother’s Day Printable. It not only gives “Mom” an option of what food she likes and where she would like to eat her breakfast. But, also a 2nd Mother’s Day printable that is all about “Mom” and the kinds of things she likes and enjoys. Such a great way for kids and or hubby to get to know you better! These printables could be used for a very fun Mother’s Day morning full of memories and love. To all you GREAT Moms out there. I applaud you! Its a a lot of HARD work but so very rewarding! Happy Mother’s Day to [Read More…]

Teacher Clipboard

decorated teacher clipboard feature image

Hello Crafting Chick friends! Did you know that I was a teacher before staying home with my boys? It’s true! I taught kindergarten for 10 years and LOVED it! Needless to say, I have a soft spot for teachers and Teacher Appreciation Week is going to be here soon! Our school organizes Teacher Appreciation Week by day for example Monday everyone brings a flower to make a huge bouquet, Tuesday bring a note, Wednesday wear their favorite color, Thursday bring a gift, and Friday bring a sweet treat. For gift day I thought it would be fun to make a Teacher Clipboard that she could hang by her desk or outside of her classroom door. This is the kind of craft that is perfect for using up things in your craft stash! Most of this stuff came from discount and dollar bins at craft stores and Target. Start by painting the whole clipboard {I used Martha’s aqua chalkboard paint.} After the paint [Read More…]

Caramel Klondike Volcano

errupting_klondike_volcano

Sponsored post by Lunchbox, all opinions are 100% my own. Ice cream is a favorite treat at our house no matter the weather, but especially when it starts warming up. I took the original Klondike bars to the next level with this Caramel Klondike Volcano. It makes a pretty impressive dessert if I do say so myself. And the best part, it takes just seconds to make!   What would you do-oo-oo for a Klondike Bar? Even without the whipped cream and caramel Klondike bars are my favorite ice cream treat. Vanilla chocolate covered in chocolate, nothing fancy just plain delicious.   That plain delicious makes a great base for our dessert. To make a volcano you’re going to take a hot knife (run it under hot water first) and cut into 4ths on the diagonal so you make little triangles   Stack the triangle on end to create Mt. Klondike.   Top with whipped cream, caramel and sliced almonds. [Read More…]

Aesop’s Fine Birds Free Printable

Aesop's Fine Birds Free Printable! Two options include one to color in yourself and another color version that's ready to frame!

My six year old has just discovered the magic of Aesop’s Fables and the whole family has gotten into the morals of these short stories. I’m Vanessa from Tried & True and I’m so happy to be sharing Aesop’s Fine Birds Free Printable with all you lovely Crafting Chicks readers. Hope you enjoy! So, in case it’s been a while and you need a refresher on Aesop’s Fables, this quote comes from the tale of The Jay and the Peacock. The basic gist of the story is that a Jay finds a bunch of molted peacock feathers and ties them to his tail as he struts around. Much to the Jay’s distress, the peacocks immediately discover his ruse and proceed to peck out the feathers. With no other choice, the Jay returns to his understandably annoyed jay family, to which they reply: “It is not only fine feathers, that make fine birds.” I just love how these old stories are still [Read More…]

Fresh Spring Centerpiece

featured

Nothing says Spring quite like fresh flowers and…asparagus! Ok, maybe not asparagus, but look how great it looks in this Fresh Spring Centerpiece! Here’s what I used: -Flowers -Asparagus -Rubber bands -Jute Twine -Scissors I got the tulips from Walmart for less than $5! First, I arranged the flowers how I liked, put a rubber band around them to hold them in place and trimmed the stems to the height I wanted. I used a toilet paper roll to add a little structure and to keep the tulips in place. Next, I trimmed all the asparagus. I used another rubber band around the toilet paper roll to hold the asparagus in place. Once all the asparagus was in place, I tied jute twine around the top and bottom and removed the rubber band. I love tulips, but you could use any kind of flower and it would look great! I can’t wait to use this on my dining table! Heck, [Read More…]
