A little about me:

I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

Kids Table :)

I found a new site that I am addicted to! stumbleupon.com, check it out BUT don't hate me for it when you realize you have been "stumbling" for over 2 hours....

Anyways, thanks to my new addiction I found this great idea for a kids activity table at the wedding! {Isn't that cute?}

There was a GREAT idea under the DIY section for "melted crayons"... ((this looks so cool!))


I am copying in their directions {mostly so I will remember a year from now}

You will need:
  • crayons in a variety of colors
  • mini-muffin pan (Don’t plan on using this again for anything edible. I got mine at a second-hand store for next to nothing.)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees
Remove paper from crayons and break them into into smallish pieces. Place inside muffin pan. Have fun coming up with interesting colour combos.

Place tin in oven until crayons melt. (About 15 mins.)

Remove tray from oven. Let cool for a few minutes, then pop into the freezer until they harden.
homemade crayons
Place muffin tin on counter, turn it over and pop out the pucks. They should fall out easily. Aren’t they gorgeous little works of art?

I am soooo excited to set this up with white butcher paper :) I can't wait to find more ideas...
