[for the most important people in your life]

Isn't this a fun idea? Hungry monster laundry bags for kids' room. Could use them for small toys as well.

Purchase the printed fabric for easy DIY here at Spoonflower.

Love this idea of a metal sheet on the wall so you can have fun with magnetic letters. I saw this on Pinterest. Couldn't find the source.

Easy to see. Cute on the wall.

Same thing - easy to see and cute on the wall.

Whether retro, modern or any other style - this is a cute idea for a doll house. Any shelf/dresser can be made into a doll house.

Such a creative idea for a bookshelf.

[look what I made]

It looks a bit like the Earth from space but of course it's just an Easter egg I made by putting some nail polish in water and dipping an egg in it.

[brownEs April Fool's prank]

Want to have some fun for April Fool's? I can't remember where I saw this idea to make special April Fool's "brownies" for someone. Brown letter E's to be exact. J

I used two paper plates. On one I flattened some playdough so that the "treat" would feel heavy enough for brownies. I taped another plate on top and placed the brown E's on it. Covered it all with foil and added the card. 

Here's the image I used for the card if you're in the mood to have some April Fool's fun as well. J

What are some other fun April Fool prank ideas? Please leave a comment if you have a good one to share.

Look what I learned to do! Wide, flat braids are so gorgeous. Five strand braid is what I normally do but this stacked one is even wider than that. It would have turned out even better had I wet the hair first. 

Cute Girls Hairstyles has instructional videos for all sorts of braids and other hair styles. Check them out. :)

[I'm seeing teeth nowadays. Lots and lots of teeth.]

More excuses for not blogging. This time a really good one. We just opened up a denture clinic from scratch (what an undertaking that has been, to say the least) and after being a stay-at-home-mom for the past 9+ years, have returned to work part time as a receptionist (my husband is the denturist, not me). I'm sure I will still keep blogging sporadically as I have been. I don't know what rhyme or reason this barely alive blog has anymore but for some reason it's still fun to come and share something here every once in awhile. 

My mother-in-law and I put these waiting area chairs together. All six of them. What a pain in the butt project that was. At one point we just started laughing like crazy. People complain about mother-in-laws but mine sure is super awesome. Always willing to help us and so supportive of all we do. I'll never forget the fun we had trying to put these chairs together.

I must say that it has been kind of fun to shop for a brand new clinic. We mainly used neutral colors throughout the clinic but our logo is green apple colored so there are green accents here and there. Still a work in progress. Trying to decide what to put on the walls next. Marketing is always the tricky part too. Takes time to build up clientele. What's a clinic without patients, right? :) Wish us luck. :) I'm counting on "If you build it, they will come." :)

I just have to share this blog post of peculiar burial rites of Tana Toraja in Indonesia. What an interesting read! Check it out.

I love the Amusing Planet blog. Cool stuff!
