Iron-On Veggie Bags

by Alix Sorrell

Did you know yesterday was National Eat Your Vegetables Day?! I don’t usually need an excuse to eat more than my fair share of vegetables but if you do perhaps these easy to make iron-on bags will inspire you to eat more. These bags are great for the farmers market or to store your veggies in the fridge!

Jumbo Popsicle Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I love it when decorations are affordable, super quick, and make big impact and this popsicle garland definitely fits the bill. In case you don’t recognize them, the popsicles are made of chopped up pool noodles! They come in so many different colors that you can make your garland popsicles whatever “flavors” you like – and how about making real popsicles to match your color scheme? And don’t forget to make a giant popsicle piñata!
