We are so lucky to be in a warm house and have everything we need!
It's a scary world out there...my thoughts and prayers for the people of Japan.
We did not have a traditional Irish meal today, but it was green! Food dye is always fun and handy to have!

My mom's birthday is coming up so I made her a mini scrapbook album.
It was such a fast and easy project I will definitely do more of these. The big albums are a lot more work. I love doing those as well, but I am so far behind on those.... It was nice to finish one whole (mini) album in less than one hour!

One of my friends birthdays is coming up, and I know she likes practical gifts that she can use.
Well, this gift is a little practical, -you can use it, and it's cute. There is a lot of bird stuff going on in "craft world' right now, and I wanted to join in. My friend likes animals so I hope she likes this.
I took a mason jar (I love those!) and filled it with bird seeds. Then a nest, with some moss and twigs (from Hobby Lobby) and a little decorative bird that I glued on to the top.
I added a ribbon and a cute tag. Again I used a "glansbilde", -totally vintage (from my childhood album)...

Last Saturday I had a baby shower for one of my very good friends. It will be her fourth child and she does not know what she is having. (She already has 3 beautiful girls!)
-So I decided to go with a rubber ducky theme. - And green and yellow decorations.
I didn't have time to take any pictures from the party, but took some of the cupcakes before leaving the house. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. Thank you cricuit machine (the ducky cut out - attached to toothpicks)! That was really fun to do! Blue "water", "bubbles" and yummy chocolate underneath. Yum! Yum!
I made my friend a diaper cake - they are so much fun to make!
I stuck with the rubber ducky theme. I found a cute little bucket at Target for the top. I mod podged a vintage "glansbilde" on it. - A cute little bucket to hold baby's bath stuff..

A few years back my mother-in-law gave me this super cute cabbage bowl set. I just love it!
And since March is a "green" month I thought I would share it with you!
Now, we're off to join Miss E for lunch at school.

We are back home to snow and chills...
Me and hubby just came back from beautiful Cozumel, Mexico.
We stayed at an all inclusive resort - totally the way to go! It was just beautiful and great! Food and drinks available at all hours! Tips included!
We went on little and big excursions; boating, jeeping, snorkeling and beaching!
On our last day we got to see one of the worlds new seven wonders; Chichen-Itza. It's an ancient Mayan town on the mainland. It was absolutely amazing and so very interesting! Their calendar and knowledge, -you really have to ask yourself if aliens were involved.... I know that sounds crazy, but so was all the information we got about these Mayans! Very cool!
Well, now back to everyday life, responsibilities and parenthood. And I do love those things too!

We had a lot of fun with our friends on Valentine's. We set a fancy table with rose petals and candy.
-Old fancy china from grandma, lip gloss napkin ring and a cute little marshmallow bear...
Double fudge chocolate cupcakes... Heart shaped tea sandwiches and salads. Tea and coffee...
...and a bunch of wonderful little princesses!
(Here are the two hosts...)
