DIY Mini Cotton “Candy” Invitations

by Michaela Egger

I really have a soft spot for all things miniature. Anything that’s awesome in its regular size just gets oh so much more adorable in mini. So, when i was thinking of a fun way to invite friends to a little backyard carnival, the idea for these mini cotton candy invitations popped into my mind. Now, these are really not suitable for little kids – they might try eat the cotton, but older children and grown-ups like me will go crazy over these sweet things with the hidden message inside! You can use them as invitations like I do or you could make them as the carnival alternative to fortune cookies and hide little fortunes inside. And hey, if you want, you can also use real cotton candy instead of cotton. Yum!

Spring is finally here which means it’s the perfect time have a clothing swap! This is a great way to do a bit of spring cleaning & re-vamp your wardrobe while catching up with friends.

Plant a Flower Day Card

by Ashley Page Norton

I’m not always perfect at remembering the birthdays I should remember, so it’s nice to send out a little note to friends and family who live far away when it’s not their birthday or a major holiday. A great excuse to keep in touch is coming up on March 12: Plant a Flower Day! Take advantage of this awesome holiday by sending cards adorned with a flower made out of seed paper. When planted, the seeds inside the paper will bloom into real wildflowers. Even if winter isn’t over yet, these cards feel like spring!
