Recent Crafting Fun

I haven't posted much in the past few weeks.  We've been keeping very busy around here.  We are having some work done in the yard at our home.  I cannot wait to show the finished products.  

So when I haven't been writing, we've been crafting/cooking around here.  I think I mentioned that Ryan is currently obsessed with My Little Pony.  He and I watched a youtube video about My Little Pony cupcakes, and after that he just had to make some.  

Ours were a little different than the ones on the video.  Ours were inspired by the pony named Rainbow Dash. (Ryan's Favorite!)

We made Rainbow cupcakes from regular white boxed mix and some food coloring.  Other than leaving us with lots of dishes to clean it was easy and fun.  

We frosted them in light blue buttercream.

Not only were they cute, but they were delicious too.  And Ryan thought it was such a special day to eat My Little Pony Cupcakes.

Since the front yard was getting a bit of a facelift around here, I decided the wreath needed an upgrade too.  I really wanted to make something, but I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg doing it.  I also wanted it to be easy.
I found this tutorial here.  It shows how to make this really easy wreath.  The wire frame was less than $4 and the fabric was $13.  If you use coupons it will be less.  You just tie the fabric around the wire frame.  It took quite a while, but it was super easy so I didn't mind taking the time to do it.  Overall, I'm happy with how it came out.  

So that's what I've been up to.  How about you?

Get Pin-Spired May

I cannot believe it is May already.  I'm so thankful for the warmth spring is brining.  Today I'm joining one of my favorite link-ups--Get Pin-spired.  This link up is to recreate some of your style pins on pinterest.  This link-up always helps me create new outfits using what's in my closet, and I need all the inspiration I can get.  This month I only have one to link up, but it was easy and cute.

Here is the pin.  (I couldn't figure how to embed the image this time.)

And here is my recreation.
Happy Wednesday!
