Making Snow Dough

It’s Winter, and even though it’s a BIT warmer than we’re used to, we’re still getting into the seasonal spirit. After reading “The Snowstorm Surprise” By Richard Scarry, we were itching to play in some snow ourselves! Since Mother Nature wasn’t really cooperating, we decided to take matters into our own hands, and make some 2 ingredient “Snow Dough” to mold and squish.

Audible Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children By Ransom Riggs

I know it seems that I’m always writing these glowing reviews about the books I read, and it’s true! I do love to read, and I love it when an author gives me a part of themselves. It’s hard not to love reading when you know that someone has reached deep into their soul and given us something heartwarming, funny, or interesting to take with us. But even I can admit that there are times when a reading (or in this case, audio book) experience is…less than stellar. So, without any further delay, I give you a review for the Audio Book “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Rejected X-Men Characters” Sorry… Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

The Rory Gilmore Challenge: UPDATED

Earlier on, I posted the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and said I would update it as I go. WELL, true to form, I did not. I started a VERY time consuming job in July (which I have subsequently taken on a smaller position in,) and had time for NOTHING! But now, I’m back. New Year, New Challenges, New Reviews, New Crafts, New Recipes, New Books, Old Books, BOOKS!
Anyway, here’s the challenge

Making a Library Book Bag!

2018 is a monumental year for Guppy! This past June she finished 3rd grade at her elementary school, and will be starting 4th at the middle school in september. When we were doing our summer “purge” of clothing, to get ready for school shopping, we came across her old elementary school t-shirt, and she was torn on what to do with it. She knew she wasn’t going to wear it anymore, but was still pretty hesitant to give it away, so we came up with making this bag as a compromise! It was an easy project for her to do, and now she has a bag to carry her books to and from the library (and, let’s face it, a bunch of other junk is going to go in it, too!)

Happee Birthdae Harry! Cupcakes

Well, my second favorite holiday is here! Harry Potter’s Birthday! So as we get the chance to wish the boy who lived one more happy birthday, I thought it would be a great opportunity to do another book-themed recipe! So without further ado, or long winded back story about how important this recipe is to me, I give you…Butterbeer Cupcakes!

This post may contain affiliate links! I make money if you buy the products I used and recommend, but feel free to use whatever ingredients you’re comfortable with. They’ll be delicious either way!
