Washcloth boo-boo bunny

Last year my baby spent a lot of time in the hospital. Within seven months, she was admitted to ICU five times, and it was an incredibly difficult time.  We were blessed with really wonderful doctors, and exceptional nurses who took great care of her, and  when you’re spending weeks in the hospital at one time, you get to know them pretty well.  Caroline was between 15-21 months during this time, and being old enough to walk but young enough to be confined in a crib was a challenge, and I was constantly looking for ways to entertain her.  She also had a lot of shots, IV’s and treatments and watching your baby go through it is pretty terrible.  The nurses were definitely the bright spots–they were so good with her, and were constantly coming up with ways to make things easier.  That’s how I learned about the washcloth boo-boo bunny!

DIY personalized notepaper

With Mother’s Day coming up, and the end of school on the horizon, gifts for mom and teacher gifts are definitely on the mind.  I’ve got a really fun solution for you–for both of them! More than ten years ago, we made my mom personalized notepaper for Mother’s Day.  It was a huge hit, and from that point on, it has been highly requested time and time again.  It is one of my favorite gifts to give for so many occasions and people–it makes an awesome teacher gift and it’s perfect for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, and even wedding and hostess gifts.  My sister served as a missionary for our church several years ago, and we made a set for her for one of her birthdays while she was gone.  It’s just so fun to make and give!

Chocolate-Covered Peeps Pops

Okay, I admit it. I’m not a huge fan of Peeps, and they’ve never really been my favorite.  However…my kids love them, and so we usually have them around Easter, and today I had some out for another project I’m working on. At the same time my kids happened to be begging for the open bag of chocolate chips in the pantry, AND I had a bag of lollipop sticks on the counter that were ready to be put away. What happened next is what I’m calling kismet.  Chocolate-Covered Peeps Pops.
