DIY Preschool Matching Game

It All Happens In A Blink came up with this adorable idea using our PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps: it's a DIY preschool matching game!  She's stamped using the PSA Little Bunny set (find it here) and her PSA Stamper. With a few changes of her ink and her stamps, she made a quick and easy matching game for her toddler.  How simple and how fun!

A big thanks to Melanie for this very inspirational project! Hop on over to her blog to check out the full post:

Golden Leprechaun

Melanie with It All Happens in a Blink designed some golden leprechaun coins using her PSA Essentials Mixed Holiday Peel & Stick stamps that I just had to share right before St. Patrick's Day! This simple and cute project uses the shamrock from the Mixed Holiday collection by PSA Essentials.

Stamped Tie On Tassel

My Very Educated Mother just joined our blog design team and she created a really unique project for us. A stamped tassel that you can use as a key chain, decorative element when gift giving, and even in your home decor, this is a fun and completely unique project. (Never would have thought of this one! This is one of the reasons I love having our design team. They really open us up to new ideas!)

She used the Frenchie Peel & Stick pack which contains the Fleur De Lis -- just a great decorative element. 

 I also love that she chose to use the centering block. It really illustrates how you can get perfect alignment with our tools and accessories.

A Very Family Weekend

This weekend was one of the best family weekends in my memory. We celebrated my mother-in-law's 73rd birthday, my grandfather's 89th birthday and my cousin's 21st at an epic celebration at my parents.  We packed in some pool time (thanks to some warm weather and a heated pool), and fit in a St. Patrick's Day celebration, too.  I am so thankful to celebrate milestone birthdays with my family and spend some quality time with everyone.

My children are really becoming friends. Saturday morning was a lazy one spent in pj's and Molly reading to Connor.

Saturday afternoon, the joint birthday party started early!  It was a gorgeous day so the kids took a spin in their "car."

So fun to celebrate my grandfather's 89th birthday! My aunt and uncle who live in Ohio, as well as my cousin who lives in Asheville were there to celebrate too. 

What a fun celebration! We were lucky enough for some warm Sunday weather, too.

We had our St Patty's day celebration a little early since I am traveling this week for work. I made the usual corned beef and cabbage and Irish Soda bread from my mother-in-law.  I feel really lucky with my in-laws, I absolutely adore them and love spending time with them.  I decorated the dinner table in our St. Patty's day finest and we celebrated like the best of them. Of course, the celebration would not be complete without some cupcakes and toppers using my PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps (Mixed Holiday).

What a really fun weekend!
