Make an Easter Egg Wreath and upcycle some old Christmas Lights | The TipToe Fairy #BringingInnovation #Ad

Conserving and recycling are important things in our family. It’s why we consistently recycle most of our trash, conserve electricity as much as possible, and why I’ve cloth diapered and breastfed all my kids. It’s also why I love to upcycle things around our house that we’d normally throw out. Today I have a fun home decor you can do with some old battery operated Christmas lights. We’re making an Easter Egg wreath!

You can check out a few other projects I’ve upcycled HERE. (more…)

Big Hero 6 Baymax Fleece Hat Tutorial - come sewalong with me for the new Disney movie! | The TipToe Fairy #BigHero6Release #ad

My kids love Big Hero 6, and they couldn’t wait for it to come out on DVD. My youngest two are really into pretend play superheroes and superhero style movies, so I knew they’d be thrilled with their own copy of the movie along with a Baymax hat. With the snow and ice we had all last week, it was a perfect time for a new fleece hat!

February 24th was our second snow day at home, and Big Hero 6 came out on DVD/Blu-Ray the same day. By the end of the day, most of the ice had melted off the streets, and I had some serious cabin fever.  We took a little trip to Walmart to get Big Hero 6 and the Baymax Disney Infinity character.

Triple Berry Capri Sun Sangria

I was at Sam’s Club the other day and bought a huge case of Capri Suns for kid lunches. When I got home, I pulled one out for me to drink.  Then, I got to thinking, wouldn’t this be a tasty treat with some alcohol mixed in?  So that’s what prompted me to make some Capri Sun-gria as I like to call it.

My absolute favorite Capri Sun flavor is Mountain Cooler, even when I was a kid, it was my fave. It’s full of berry flavors like raspberry and blackberry, so I thought it would be perfect to mix in for a delicious sangria.  (more…)

Pretty Pintastic Party #43

What have you been working on? We had some big bad ice and snow days down here in Texas.  My kids were out of school for 2 days, but it’s actually snowed every day down here since Sunday. Crazy! Tonight it’s supposed to snow even more.

We went sledding down the driveway in laundry baskets and made lots of yummy food including this Bubblegum Poke Cake! Check out the recipe HERE!

Bubblegum Poke Cake

I still think of myself as a kid sometimes. You know why? Because one of my favorite flavors is Bubblegum. I like to make bubblegum flavored desserts. I’ve made bubblegum cupcakes, ice cream, cream slushes, and even fudge. Ever since I found those frosting creations mix in flavor pouches, I will probably make bubblegum anything.

Bubblegum Poke Cake - perfect for kid birthday parties | The TipToe Fairy

The other day I was grocery shopping and my 4 year old found bubblegum flavored gelatin mix. We both knew we had to buy it. I just didn’t know what exactly we were going to make with it. I didn’t want to make just plain ol’ gelatin. How boring is that? So, I was looking for a recipe for something involving soft drinks the other day and saw this amazing cherry cola poke cake. Then, it hit me! Bubblegum Poke Cake would be perfect with the bubblegum gelatin. (more…)
