Sea Glass Candy Recipe

Sea Glass Candy Recipe

See all that glass in the photo above? Yeah, it’s not glass… it’s candy! You can hold it and eat it and it won’t cut you. One of the coolest things to do at the beach is search for cool shells and rocks. Often I even find little smoothed out pieces of glass in the sand! It’s amazing what the ocean can do.

So, I was inspired by the beach and shared this cool and tasty Sea Glass Candy recipe (and free sea glass candy printable tags) on the HP Create blog. How fun would these be for a beach themed wedding favor?

  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • Blue and green food coloring

Supplies needed to make this treat:

15 Small Baby Room Solutions

15 Small Baby Room Solutions

Trend: 15 Small Baby Room Solutions

Since our little family is prepping to expand from one little daughter to two, we are busy prepping the house for the baby. Our home has exactly 2 small bedrooms. One for my husband and I, and the other for our first kiddo. Our daughter is 5 years old and we feel bad putting a little baby into her room, so we came up with an idea: we will turn our tiny kitchen nook into the smallest of bedrooms, ever. It’s so very small, but perfect for a little baby to hang out in till she’s about 3. We just need to build a wall and door, and we are done. Well… we also need to buy a crib and ALL the other things needed for a baby (since we got rid of all the baby things).

Since this room will be so small, my husband and I will need to get a bit creative with how we arrance the room and what we put in it. Over on the Better Homes and Gardens blog you’ll find 15 Small Baby Room Solutions that have really inspired me to get started on my little baby’s room.

Head on over here to see the full list of awesome small baby room solutions, and have a great Wednesday!

It’s a…

I have a little news to share with you guys. We found out what sex of the little baby growing in my belly is. It’s a little…

Girl!

Baby Girl Dress from Target

We are beyond excited to have another little lady in our lives. Our first daughter, Ruari, is getting ready to be a big sister… she’s weaving her a baby blanket and it’s turning out adorable. I’ll be sure to share it when she’s finished. If you’re curious… she’s been making the blanket on this Melissa and Doug loom (it’s so easy for kids to use).

Happy Monday and enjoy the week!

A couple of weeks ago I shared this tutorial (and free pineapple printable) on the HP Create blog. I’m very happy with this pretty creations and I just used it at the park last week.
