make this! easter cones

It all started with some pretty party hats. Oh Joy for Target party hats to be exact. I purchased them for my birthday (yep, bought them for myself), had a little fun with them but didn't want to part ways just yet. The colors are the perfect shades of spring & they make instant containers. Cue in the Easter cone.

It's extremely simple & a great way to reuse something too pretty to toss. (I snipped up one of the hats for my scrapbook which is just about done)

I've heard that the Oh Joy line is becoming scarce and will be gone in a few weeks.  If you can find these pretties, yay! If not, I'm sure there are other suitable pretty party hats around.

These are incredibly simple and only require a few things any everyday crafter would have on hand.

A few notes... *Oh Joy for Target hats were purchased at my local Target. They cost $3. *The  ribbons and washi tape are all from past Studio Calico kits. The twine is also from Studio Calico. *All other items (plastic eggs & grass) were purchased from my local Target. *After peeling off the tape, you do want to remove the elastic string.

Have fun giving these a try! My little guy loved helping me put these together. Great make for little ones!


weekend desk

I had a lot of projects going on this weekend and felt the need to fit in some PL time. I always feel more inclined to catch up when a new month begins. Keeps me on track....I figure if I don't get more than a month behind, I'm ok. I started with the current week and now working my way back.

I wanted to do a quick tutorial on my most recent Instagram post.  I think this is a really cute way to add these types of photos into your scrapbooking. I do this before deleting all them because who needs 20 photos of the top of your child's head.

Hope you had fabulous weekend full of good things. xot
