Busy! Happy spring! Happy Easter!

Wow, this spring break from school is just flying by. Hope everyone had a great, safe Easter and enjoyed themselves and for those who aren't religious hope you all enjoyed the beautiful spring weather! Well we have been busy in this household. Although I haven't been creating anything arty I did do a few Pinterest things. You know I did not think I would like Pinterest because of all the hype, but it just saves me so much more time in searching for crafty or DIY ideas to come up with especially for the children, almost better than mags and searching online! Heartslilian has joined Pinterest so if you all are interested I think you can follow me, but I will have to add the link and badge for it. Okay so on with what we Pinterested. Lol. I made home made liquid laundry detergent and I have to say it turned out awesome. The way it makes our clothes feel soo clean is wonderful. I did however added a raspberry essence ( only because this is what I had left) to the liquid because even though it smells so lemony and good, that does not stick to the clothes, the clothes smelled clean but I just wanted a nice scent so it is optional. This is going to save me big bucks, especially when I start drying my clothes it in the line in the sun. The only down side I have to say is that melting the soap, though it smells wonderful I have to say by the time I was done I felt like I could smell it for a day or so afterwards really annoying lol. Other than that awesome especially if you go in on it with family. Okay the next was actually 2 of my oldests ideas of what they wanted to do over break, so DIY terrariums. They had fun even when they were able to add a little toy inside. Really pretty to look at. We used recycled glass bottles like, coffee and jelly bottles. Needles to say we are enjoying watching these mini greenhouses. Well I hope you all have a great week. There are lots hung on and I am in the mood to shake things up. Happy Arting !
