I’m loving this Fringe banner that I found over at Armommy. She gives you all the wonderful details for how to do this yourself and I think I might make one just for fun! I hope you’re loving this beautifully spring day. Enjoy!
Mar25 Easter Eggs 2013
Here’s a bit of Easter Egg inspiration for you and your kiddos. It’s a really fun project to get the family around the table, and a great way to make your Easter Egg Hunt a little more styled. Obviously your kids will naturally want to do a suicide egg by dipping them each color 45 times until it’s the color of dirt, but…here’s some ideas to make a few Fashionista Easter Eggs.
Here’s what you need:
1: Some paint choices of your choosing
2: Paint Brushes
3: Egg Dye
4: Round Stickers
5: Thin Tape
6: Liquid Leaf
7: Glitter and glue
8: Chalkboard Paint and Chalk
Dipped Dyed Hombre Eggs. These are tons of fun and really simple. Just start by only dipping the bottom portion of the egg, let it dry and dip again going a bit deeper into the dye each time and you’ll slowly have a hombre easter egg.
Painted Eggs: Emerald and Gold! Paint the eggs emerald and allow the paint to dry. Then Shake up your Liquid Leaf and paint it over the green. You can also paint the liquid leaf directly on a white egg.
Chalkboard Paint Eggs: With these you could number them during the Easter egg hunt and make a game of finding each number! Simply paint these eggs with a chalkboard paint, grab some chalk and the egg is your canvas. The best part about these is you can erase the chalk and your kids can do as many designs as they want.
Painted Eggs: Coral, Peach, Mint & Glitter! For the Polka Dot Eggs, you can put some basic round stickers on the eggs and paint over them. Once the paint dries, lift the stickers and you have perfectly round Polka Dots! I did the chevron by hand, and the Gold Glitter was just a layer of glue and some Gold Glitter to coat the egg in fancy sparkles, which will make a home on your wood floor and never move out (my husband LOVES glitter).
Natural Eggs painted with White. For the white and Brown Eggs just use a small paint brush, some white paint, and you or your kiddos can create whatever pattern their little heart desires.
Dip Dyed Patterns: To make the lines, used rubber bands or strong tape to wrap around the eggs, and drop them in the dye. For the polka dot eggs, place strong plastic stickers on the eggs and drop them in the dye. This one is really fool-proof so the kids will love it.
That’s all!!!! Enjoy doing crafty easter eggs, and make your easter egg hunt a little bit prettier!
Mar21 DIY Home 2013
Their new baby’s nursery is so sweet, complete with a cozy tepee, which I could crawl in right now and take a nice afternoon nap.
And lastly their bedroom wall!!! It’s the centerpiece of their room and takes my breathe away. It’s an old hymn that has been hand painted on to the wall in perfectly swirly writing that causes your eye to follow the unending line of letters like your dancing along the words of the hymn. Can I move in?

One year ago, we posted photos of this little dude on his first birthday.
Now that he is two, his mother Nashara Wisenbaker sent us a little update that is just as cute as the last. Nashara isn’t a photographer, she is just a creative mom that is doing a spectacular job documenting her son. She even gave us all the details on how she makes his yearly photographs such perfection. I like that there is simplicity in the photos, and a bit of theme shared between his first year and the second year. She picked the same spot in her house, a fun modern chair, striped pajamas, light blue props, some yummy dessert, an adorable little boy, and we have some really precious photos.
