Top Posts of 2014

A lot happened in 2014, and my blog saw fewer posts than normal, but it was still fun to look back and see the most popular posts for 2014... most popular posts 2014
When writing posts, it's hard to tell what others will find exciting or worth re-pinning, but these posts were a hit:
  1. How to clean gunk off your kitchen I need to go and finish the rest of the cabinet doors...
  2. Lego Head Straw Toppers. These were the easiest aspect of my son's Lego birthday party to make and they looked so cute.
  3. Lego Rice Krispies Treats...the perfect way to sugar up all of your guests at a Lego party :).
  4. Milk Jug Earrings. I still get mixed reviews when I wear these from "How cool!" to "how weird!"
  5. I just added Popsicle sticks to my shopping list because of crafts like our Popsicle Stick bird feeders.
  6. I'm still pretty proud of how my husband's Tank Cake turned out!
  7. Apparently a lot of people are looking into how to keep dogs out of their gardens.
  8. The rainbow mosaic was a fun craft to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
  9. I love how versatile the fold & snap bib is.
  10. And last, but not least is our Popsicle Stick American Flag.
There you have it! Happy 2015, and I can't wait to see what this year brings :)

Egg Heads!

When my son was in Pre-K he came home one day and exclaimed that we had to make grass heads. I started searching on Pinterest and found some cute ideas with panty-hose, but since I didn't have any at the time, we looked for other options. One of those was egg heads.And so we made our own egg heads, or grass heads!

These were so fun to make and watch as the grass grew into crazy hair! All you need are: empty egg shells, egg carton, marker, dirt, grass seed.

Silly Snowman Game

If the cold weather is driving you nuts and keeping everyone indoors, celebrate the snow with a silly snowman game. Inspired by Chicken Babies “Roll a Monster Snowman” and similar to our silly pumpkin game, it’s easy, free and fun!Silly Snowman Game @
Cut out a bunch of snowman parts from construction paper: lots of body parts (I traced two different size jars), hats, carrot noses, stick arms, eyes, and coal. I used pom-poms for our coal and googly eyes, but we had those on hand.

Mine is on the left, his is on the right (his reminds me of trees we made 2 years ago):Popsicle Stick Tree @ Popsicle Stick Tree @

Christmas Safety Tips for You

What is better than a Christmas get together?
Saving money and being safe.
Well, in some cases, we want to enjoy the lovely Christmas moments. However, taking care of yourself and your loved ones is important too.

Holiday lights
It is important to inspect light strings carefully and if you find any cords that are frayed, they should be discarded. Also, look for loose connections and cracked lamp holders. They can be dangerous. So, look for them and keep yourself safe. If you are replacing bulbs, be sure that the new bulb’s wattage and voltage match the specification of the original bulb. If you are not sure about it, check it online and place an online order for it. Here, if the order is of more than five bulbs, purchase it from You can find discount codes for  at (sponsored link) ChameleonJohn.
