SPRING GREENS
A Few Favorite Posts

D

on’t you love the calming color of green in the spring?  I do and it’s with that in mind that I decided to share a few of my favorite posts that feature the color GREEN.

Let’s start with these adorable cookie mix gift sacks.

These handcrafted sacks (feature pre-packaged, store-bought cookie mix inside) are really quite simple to make and you can see my easy tutorial HERE. 

Allow me to share a few of my favorite spring greens.

If you plan to do some small scale gardening this season, consider making your own herb markers.

A handful of inexpensive spoons, a mallet and an alphabet die set is almost all you’ll need to create these whimsical markers.

My kids love this apple crumble recipe and your family will too.

The recipe and directions are in my delicious post HERE.

Talk about the Cat’s Meow.

This adorable Kitty and ferns really takes this apron to the next level.

It’s stenciled and you can see the step by step process in an earlier post HERE.

Brown paper bags are for more than just hauling groceries.

They can also make wonderful, natural-looking wrapping paper.

I must admit, I selected this final photo because I just love the photo of my son’s hands.

Well, at least there’s a green straw, right?

No more getting those drinks mixed up with these chalkboard drink tags.
