Coffee Filter Wreath for Spring

It doesn't feel like spring anymore outside but we're going to change that today but making a wreath for our door! 



These colors are sure to brighten your day! 



What you'll need 

  • paper plate
  • coffee filters
  • food coloring
  • paint pallet
  • paintbrushes
  • newspapers (to protect your work surface)
  • hole punch
  • stapler
  • ribbon for hanging






First we used the food coloring to make water paint in your paint pallet. 

Josiah colored the coffee filters until he couldn't anymore..(this was a two day process since we needed about 16) We let them dry. It only took about an hour to fully dry. 



He had a lot of fun mixing and making new colors.

After the filters are dry we cut the paper plate and punch holes. I punched four holes near each other to make a big hole. 

You can either do this for your child or let him/her do this. I actually did this last and by that time Josiah's attention span was done. So I just finished this for him by scrunching the paper in the holes and stapling them in place.

Add the string/ ribbon to hang your wreath up and your all set!

Easter Egg Garland ; #DIYFAIL


What you'll need ;

  • Plastic Easter eggs 
  • string

First we measured the mantel and cut the string in the appropriate place. 



We started putting the string into the eggs, while doing this I would ask him what color was next.



Again fine motor skills used here as we try to place a string through a little hole.

This didn't hold his attention long. 


he took the camera and starting snapping 





After he ran off I tried to finish 


but then I let go of the whole thing and it went everywhere. These are also pictures, courtesy of Josiah.

This was a #DIYFAIL

Neither Josiah or I have the patience to try this again. LOL Maybe next year!

Products In the Three Step System:

let's be clear   
Let’s be clear: Healthy skin begins with clean skin. So the first step in your Pretty Mommies regimen is to thoroughly cleanse and gently exfoliate with our all natural facial cleanser. It washes away impurities without drying out your skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. Let’s Be Clear safely addresses common skin conditions specific to pregnant and nursing women – like hormonal acne breakouts – but it  also contains many other healthy skin care benefits.”
      truth be told   
“Here’s the truth: This multi-functional product does it all. With other skin care lines, you have to use several products to get the results that Truth Be Told provides all by itself. Plus, it contains only the highest quality natural ingredients. As the second step in your Pretty Mommies skin care regimen, it may be the most powerful. Truth Be Told provides a high level of antioxidants and anti-aging properties. It also brightens, hydrates and calms down inflammation. And on top of that, it contains natural anti-bacterial ingredients which help to significantly improve acne and blemishes. So skin is soft, bright, clear and younger-looking.”
    protect and reflect 
“Moms are passionate protectors. That’s why the third step in your Pretty Mommies regimen is sunscreen. Made with pure, non-nano 22.5% zinc oxide, this sunscreen gives you superior broad spectrum sun protection and reflects harmful UVA/UVB rays. Sun protection is extremely important, but Protect & Reflect also prevents hyperpigmentation and melasma from worsening. The natural anti-inflammatory benefits of zinc calm down stubborn hormonal acne. Loaded with antioxidants, it also soothes and hydrates your skin. Plus, it goes on clear with no white residue. Protect & Reflect is an excellent makeup primer too – because zinc, a natural mineral, softly fills in fine lines, wrinkles and pores without clogging them. That means flawless looking skin.”

Easter Egg Stamping





What you'll need ;
  • Paper
  • Scissors (kid safe)
  • Poster paint
  • Plastic Easter egg halves (to match color of paint)
  • Paper plate to hold paint

First you draw a large egg shape on a white piece of paper




 Letting your child cut the outlined egg himself helps with fine motor skills.

After cutting out the egg, we put the paint on the plate and had the plastic Easter eggs to match the color of the paint. 

He was not happy at first but then when we started he was really into it!





This was a fun learning activity! And after Josiah got a little messy he was really into it!

5 for FIVE ; Mani Monday

Last week I had the same goals as the week before. This time I got most SOME of them done! so here they are;
http://www.thestickynoteaddict.com/2014/03/5-for-five-volume-52.html

1. GET MONTHLY BUDGET IN ORDER
2. WORK OUT
3. PLAN MEALS / DO NOT EAT OUT ALL WEEK
4. GET NAILS DONE / CUT MY HAIR
5. CALL DOCTORS & LAWYER


I did the important stuff. I called my lawyer to get my court case rolling. They say I can't use my miscarriage in court unless a doctor says they are absolutely sure it was caused by the accident. Which is absolutely insane to me but whatever!  Just give me some money for my pain and suffering. UGH

I got my nails done because I went out Saturday night for my boyfriends brothers birthday party at a bar. THAT night was such a disaster lol basically I was sober and I saw him talking to another girl. Like in her face and his friend tapped him when he saw me coming. He says it was nothing, BUT I flipped out in the bar. I MAY have overreacted.. but what's a girl to do, HE knows how I am and that my emotions are on 1000 right now.. needless to say me and him are not on speaking terms right now. AND no pictures ...SORRY ! HAHAHA

I haven't really got my budget in order but I marked it as green because I am working 14 shifts this next paycheck and...it should look real pretty. I do this monthly chart thing that really helps me, as long as I stay on track and not buy anything too expensive I think I'll be fine with this method..

My knee has really been bothering me has been stopping me from working out. but I will continue to do so after my appointment today! I am hoping for VERY good news I need your prayers!! 


This weeks goals;

1. GET MY CAR CLEANED - I told my self I would clean it every two weeks! I am not playing! the rain will clean it tomorrow LOL 
2. WORK OUT 
3. DON'T EAT OUT ALL WEEK
4. CLEAN MY ROOM 
5. GET GIVEAWAY TOGETHER FOR MY SWAPPERS! - I have decided to do this to gain more friends! Since my link-ups didn't work, I know a giveaway will!

DIY Crayons



 ****This post has been revamped for your viewing pleasure!

If your a mommy, you probably have a huge pile of broken crayons... I've always thrown them away until I found a new, fun and easy way to recycle them!!

Here is a quick step-by-step on how to do it -


Remove the paper wrappers & break the crayons into small even sized pieces.. and put together with the broke ones you already have..

 

Add your crayons to the pan. It's probably best to use like-colored crayons or you'll get a lot of brownish crayons once the colors melt together but of course I experimented with the colors as you can see.. I used the muffin tray, with no liners and added a little pam..we bought the from the dollar store a while ago.


 

Put the pan into a 200-degree oven until you have little pools of "nasty crayon soup" Josiah called it... It took about 20 minutes for ours to melt completely. Remove from oven and put in freezer for a few minutes to cool completely before popping them out.


 

Josiah and the kids had a great time making these and now he can color all over grandma's table with these cute and fun crayons!
