When we were trying to decide what to do with all of Nyla's books, the usual came to mind, book shelves. But in our house we're not so usual. I saw these cute little boxes at a local store and knew our problem was solved!
We've had these for awhile and they really do work, Nyla's room is pretty neat, atleast in the book department :) Nyla's a huge reader & it's super easy for her to grab one or toss one in when she's finished reading.
Pretty & practical, doesn't get any better than that :)
Don't you just love my little model "Dodger" :) I was leaning back on the bed trying to get this picture when he jumped up :)

Can you tell I have summer on my mind!!
This is a little switcheroo on the "cup of dirt" pudding. Super easy & fun, who doesn't like a little beach for desert??
Vanilla instant pudding (make according to package directions)
Sour Patch kids
Broken graham crackers, & or brown sugar
Once you have your pudding made, just decorate, some I added brown sugar just because I was playing around - kids totally loved the extra sweetness but I think it was perfect without it.

I stumbled across one of my old craft projects and fell in love with it all over again!
I call it "Portrait Glitterature"
Simply print out one of your favorite photos, grab some fabulous colors of glitter & various glues, toothpicks.
Depending on what area you are covering determines what glue. For little areas I used good ole' Elmer's glue and just kinda drawed it, bigger areas a glue stick. You can even use a toothpick dipped in glue to "draw" your glitter details. Then sprinkled the glitter over the glued area. Allow to dry before starting a new glitter color.
Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! This project is a little messy but glitter is soo worth it :)
You can really get as detailed as you want, for my picture I wanted Nyla's eye lashes & ice cream to pop, so I concentrated on them.
I remember this day, she was sooo excited to get ice cream with sprinkles! (isn't that the coolest, being so little that sprinkles make you super happy!)
I'm hanging with this fun bunch, come join me!!!
