I’m always trying to come up with new ways to decorate Easter eggs. Recently while at the craft store, I happened upon puffy paint in the best neon colors. I haven’t used puffy paint in over 20 twenty years but remembered always having a lot of fun with it. To create some brightly hued eggs […]

Tomorrow is the first day of spring! We’re off to a very rainy start around here – our house could definitely use some spring color to brighten things up.

As a child, the story of Snow White was always magical for me. The mirror, the dwarfs, the apple, and sweet Snow White. So I was thrilled when the creators of the new upcoming movie Mirror Mirror asked to sponsor a couple of my ideas for showcasing the new movie. (Plus Julia Roberts is one […]
