Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

I just love Spring!   The weather is warming up, the lawn is turning green and the birds are out chirping!  But it also means that Easter will be coming soon as well.   My kids have always loved dying Easter eggs.  But everytime we do the little container with the dye gets tipped over, which is never fun.   I saw the Shaving Cream Easter Eggs on Pinterest last year and I thought of giving them try finally.

Apple Brine Juice for turkeys

I will admit I am new to the entire brining your turkey.   I don’t think my parents ever did when I was younger so I never really knew much about it.   What I have been missing out on!!   I have brined several turkeys lately and they are seriously more flavorful and the juiciest turkey you will ever have.  I have decide that my favorite brine so far is the Apple Brine.

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner I wanted a fun way to enjoy these M&M’s® with our family and friends.   I love the bright colors that M&M’s® use with their products.    All the colors remind me of a rainbow so there is no better way to showcase them then with a rainbow!   Which is perfect for the upcoming holiday.

Pine Cone Wreath

This is one of my favorite wreaths I have ever made!   I was cleaning out the garage a few weeks back and I came across a bag of pine cones that I collected for a craft project that I never got around to making.   So I was fiddling around on Pinterest of course and I saw this Pine Cone Wreath and I fell in love with it!   I think it was from Martha Stewart.

It’s just what my front door needed!!

DIY Advent Calendars

With Christmas right around the corner I wanted to start making some family traditions.   Now with my son being 2 years old I think he will start to have fun and hopefully understand the concept of only 1 piece of candy a day.   We will see how that goes.

At my mom’s ward for homemaking they had these adorable DIY Advent Calendars.   I thought they were cute, simple, easy to re-use every year.  So I decide to buy some and put them together.

Halloween Table

Halloween Table

Hey everyone! So glad to be here and finally introduce myself. I’m Lindsay with Frenchie and I love anything and everything with a thought behind it. It doesn’t need to be homemade cause let’s face it, sometimes that just gets to be a bit stressful. I love taking things a little unexpected and making them into pretty killer things. Like this old cigar box that I just used some simple Hemp Oil on and my kids use it for school items now! I’m also really known for using my Cricut Explore since I got it a few months ago. Holy cow, awesomeness! They are going to be having a Black Friday sale that you won’t believe and I highly suggest you grab it!

Easy Yarn Easter Eggs

Having little boy makes the holidays alot more fun!!!   I get excited to decorate our home for the holidays.   I have been wanting to make these Easy Yarn Easter Eggs since last Easter and well this year I finally got around to making to them.

They were beyond easy to make and alot of fun!  I combined them into 3 easy steps.

Easy Step 1:  Purchase Sta-flo liquid starch,  I got it at Walmart in the laundry isle $3.50, purchase water balloons $1.00, Embroidery floss .33 each (I used one entire floss per egg)

Easy Step #2  Mix 1 cup liquid starch and 1 cup flour in your blender and combine until smooth.  While you are blending away, blow up your water balloons up to your desired sizes. (note: NOT to use water you will ruin your egg)   I did a variety of large, medium and small.  In a wide bowl pour mixture.  Unravel your thread and gently place on top of mixture covering all the string.  Making sure to keep the end in reach.

Easy Step #3  Grab your string and start wrapping it all around your balloon.  Using as much or as little string as you want.  When your are done with your masterpiece, place some wax paper on the counter and place balloon egg on top to dry.  I needed about 1 full day to dry.   I did have to move the egg around to make sure all sides got dried.   Now the fun part.  Pop your balloon and very carefully pull out the balloon through the cracks of your string.

Now display your eggs proudly on your counter in a bowl or basket,  grab some more thread and turn them into garland.    I have heard of placing candy inside your balloon then when you pop them you have a fun surprise inside.  I have heard though when you pop your balloon your ballon covers the candy making it impossible to remove.   So if you wanted to use candy when you are wrapping your string leave a small opening and when the egg is completely done add in the candy.
