The EASIEST craft and my daughter loves it!

So my little girl (Ella) and I have our "craft time".  We string beads on ribbon, or paint, or do the foam sticker art, etc.  The other day she was playing with Dora dance stickers and so I said lets "let's go make her dance"... I asked Ella to pick out her favorite and put it on card stock.  There's more than one of each design so we put the another of the same on card stock.  I cut them out and hot glued both onto a popsicle stick back to back.  Here's what it looks like...

Then I put the stick between my hands and rubbed back and forth (as though I was warming up my hands on a cold day) and it looked like she was spinning.  It was the easiest thing we've done and she love'd it.

Using Food as!

So I've recently come across a few ideas that I think are adorable and so I wanted to share...

I am currently working on a "Surf" themed party and when I came across this watermelon, I loved it!  So did my client.  : )  I found the tutorial on Creative Party Ideas by Cheryl.

I absolutely LOVE the use of this baked pineapple slice as a flower on a cupcake!!!  Gorgeous (and yummy)!

I love the use of Cotton Candy for these Dr. Suess inspired cupcakes.  Too cute!

With Spring and Summer coming around these fruit in ice cubes are fun and cute!
