Mason Jar Invites

25th Feb 2013

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore mason jars.  I use them for drinking glasses, for vases, for storing my dry baking ingredients and planting herbs.  They were the centerpieces at my wedding reception, filled with wheat and wildflowers and accented with half-pint candles.  So maybe I went a little overboard with my mason jar invite designs in the Sunnyside Print & Party Shop. I love each and every one of them though. These lace mason jar invites started out with a watercolor flower available in lots of colors, and now include a variety of flower choices including pink or […]

Chocolate Play Dough Activity

24th Feb 2013

Every time my little guy plays with this chocolate play dough, the whole house smells delicious! I’m not sure how this would work with a younger child since the scent is so enticing, but he is 4 and old enough to understand that it’s not to eat.

This time, I let him do his own thing, and guess what, it makes great dirt! And logs. He was so […]

Add-on domains and emails.  To me, this is one of the most important.   […]

Sunday Morning Buttermilk Waffles

24th Feb 2013

It’s become a tradition in our home that on Sunday mornings I make homemade waffles. Every week my husband is sure to ask if we have enough buttermilk in the fridge in anticipation for our Sunday morning waffles. I have tried a number of waffle recipes and these from Martha Stewart are by far our favorite. I usually halve the recipe below, and in my round Bella Rotating waffle maker (which I absolutely love) the half recipe makes two big fluffy waffles. 2017 Update: With three kiddos I now double this recipe!
