You're the bomb!

Remember Bomb Pops!?
We used to get them from the ice cream truck every summer!

It's a simple and fun project!

Cut out your Bomb Pop.
Fill up two separate containers with water and generous amounts of food coloring. 
Dip and dry!

We framed ours!

Boo Ya!

Somewhere over the rainbow sprinkled pretzels...

Happy Pride y'all!
We're celebrating with white chocolate mini pretzels with rainbow sprinkles!

Melt, dip, and sprinkle!

 You'll feel like a Queen crunching on these babies!

Celebrate YOU!

Superhero Boom!

We're adding a little "pop" to our Fourth of July decorating this year!

We made these comic book pop art inspired explosion signs with paper we found at Michaels!

We love the added yellow to our red, white and blue!

We're not exactly sure what to do with them...but think they look dynamite!

Cards for Dad!

It's always hard trying to figure out what to get for Dad.
Start with a card...the rest will follow!

We made these simple and fun silhouette cards.  
Perfect for Dad!

We started by cutting out silhouettes that made us think of Dad!
Andrew did this freehand.
Then we cut thin strips of magazine paper, layered and glued them on the back of our silhouettes.
After our silhouettes were complete we glued them on a folded piece of cardstock!

 We think Dad will keep this one for a while!
