Owl be back soon! Sorry, I had to =).
I have officially made it through another Oregon winter! In honor of spring's arrival, I thought I'd recap a few of my favorite flower tutorials from the blog.
First off are paper daffodils in case the calendar says spring, but the weather says differently where you are!
Followed by easy tissue paper flowers which make a beautiful table runner.
An assortment of paper flowers ...
Make whimsical, lacey flowers using decorative corner punches ...
And I couldn't end without adding some food fun, too, with flower shaped croutons.
Happy Spring! =)
As well as a very easy way to make any colored chipboard letters gold.
You can find full tutorials and photos at BasicGrey right here.
And lastly, all of my previous St. Patrick's Days posts can be found here.
My daughter had her last basketball game of the season this weekend (it was an awesome game!) and I wanted to bring in a little celebratory treat for her to share. With very limited time during our chaotic weekend, I ended up coming up with these quick and easy basketballs inspired by these much more beautiful cookies.
All you need to do is draw the lines onto Nilla Wafer cookies as shown using a black food marker...
... and pipe a small dollop (what a fun word) of desired frosting onto the bottom of another cookie. Sandwich the two together and the frosting will spread, filling out the cookie. Make sure you just add a little or else it will all just squeeze out of the sides.
And that's it! You could also add a marked cookie onto a store-bought cupcake as a topper for another last minute basketball treat.
With the Academy Awards coming up soon, I wanted to come up with some fun party ideas for an Oscar Party over at Fiskars ... but most of these ideas can be used for any movie themed event!
Like these easy faux marquee letters, which can spell out anything you need for any event.
Can you guess what paper punch I cropped to create these ridiculously easy Oscar statues? You can find out the answer here. And seriously, how cute are those little film reels??
Easier to guess is what classic toy is used for these film reels?

With now under a week until Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share my daughter's Valentines in case anyone still needed inspiration. In fact, I'll share the printable! =)
All you need to do is print out the pdf onto cardstock and cut out just inside the gray lines so they don't show. Fold them in half and adhere a wrapped chocolate heart at the arrow head using a couple of Zots or Glue Dots.
You can find the pdf here: Download Arrow Valentines
Be sure to hit refresh if it doesn't load at first. And be sure to set the print scaling to None.
And, as always, all of my Valentine posts can be viewed here. =)
A bee themed Valentine's Day party is a fun way to celebrate this sweet holiday! And it's my newest party over at Fiskars.
I'm most excited about making my own prize tickets! My kids love saving up tickets at the arcade to "buy" cheap prizes, and I thought that would translate well for party prizes.
View the full party and tutorials here.
And view my previous Valentine's Day party here.

Anyone else excited for the Super Bowl this weekend? I love any reason to get together with family and friends. And of course any reason to craft up some party decorations!
I have some new Super Bowl party ideas up over at the Fiskars site here.
Including ways to keep the kids occupied during the big game.
And other ways to add sporty fun to game day!
And lastly, you can find my Super Bowl party ideas from last year here.
