Nursery prep is well under way, the walls are painted, furniture put together…I must be nesting. Inspired by Pinterest I set out to make a mobile to go over the crib. The mobile is fun, easy and a great way to use up some scrap cardstock or paper that you have in your stash.

Have some fun this season by creating these cut 3-d eggs using your favorite paper. They are easy to make and go perfectly with any spring or Easter décor. Lay them around or place them in a basket. No matter how you use them they will bring a reminder of the new spring season to everyone.
If you’re planning an Easter dinner in a couple of weeks, don’t forget to celebrate the season with cute table decor to go with your delicious meal! These little clay eggs are a perfect way to add some spring color to your table and make a great keepsake for your guests to bring home.
Decorate the eggs however you like, from fun designs to chic metallics, these eggs are very versatile. You don’t have to just use them as place markers either. Make a few and fill up a hurricane vase for quick, easy, and custom Easter decor.
If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
I recently received a package with bright green egg cartons as packing materials – awesome recycled packing materials! Of course I immediately saved the green cartons in my craft room for a rainy day with little ones. With Easter around the corner I know we’ll have plenty more cartons lying around. So, here’s my round up of ideas for how to use those cartons. I hope you get inspired to play and craft with your kids and these great up-cycled egg cartons.
This egg carton wreath is a great family craft and the result is so beautiful and cheerful. A wonderful way to welcome spring!

I’m the type of person that puts absolutely everything on my refrigerator. Photos, To-Do Lists, Postcards, they all go up where I can enjoy them every day. I’m constantly using one magnet to hold up many pieces of paper until it falls off the fridge.
These cute little button frames kill two birds with one stone. They help display a few pictures, and they can be used to hold up all those little odds and ends I can’t let go of.
Here in Portland spring came early, we’ve had a mixture of showers and flowers for the past few weeks, but I haven’t wanted to gloat about it until my friends and family in the NE could stand outside without snowshoes or skis.
