Easter Decorations & message. {2016}

Hello dear friends!
I thought I would post a very quick blog post and get in early to wish you all a very Happy Easter.
I pray that you take time during this holiday to remember why we celebrate Easter and that your Easter weekend is safe & an enjoyable one full of love, family, good food & of course a few chocolates! 
I thought in this blog post I would share a few photos from around our home of some of my Easter decorations.
I love this sweet tiny bunny resting in a tea cup! 
This dashing fellow is Sir Hops-A-lot
Some of the beautiful Easter Decorations in LuLu's room. (the deers are always in her room) 
I know it is a lot of bunnies! I slowly add to my decoration collection each year when I find special little pieces.
Have a beautiful Easter!

The easy way to buy good wine {VinoMofo}

This post is bought to you by Nuffnang VinoMofo.
I really enjoy the occasional glass of good wine. I love sitting back at home with my husband watching a movie or just relaxing with him & enjoying a glass. But, to be honest I am not wine connoisseur - in fact I often struggle picking a good bottle. And once I find a type of wine I like, I kind of stick to it & get a bit nervous on trying new types, because there is nothing worse than buying a bottle of wine that tastes like something my cat produced. 
But I was recently introduced to a company that is on mission to make wine buying easy & affordable and always drinkable. 
Let me introduce you to Vinomofo, an online wine retailer. 
Vinomofo believes everyone should drink amazing wine & they make this easy by pretty much doing all the hard work for you. 
They do not sell anything they personally wouldn't love to drink. They work very closely with some of the worlds best wine producers to source some amazing wine.
Each wine is put through a tasting panel before it is ordered and only certain amounts of each wine is ordered and they often sell out before the 3 days of sale is finished. 
Many of the deals on Vinomofo are limited until they sell out, Vinomofo also co-produce their own branded wine through the label Kinda Independent Wine Company. KIWC wines aren't available anywhere else - only exclusively on Vinomofo but they are available all the time on the site. And these wines have some really artistic & fun labels - I am often a sucker for picking wine by the label, if it looks good surely it tastes good! But this method isn't always a good way to pick your wine, but on Vinomofo you are safe! 
If you love wine, you'll love Vinomofo! (Getting wine delivered to your door is the best thing!)
Also I think this would make gift buying very easy if you have friends & family who also enjoy good wine!
What is your favourite type of wine? I love a good sauvignon blanc! Vinomofo sent me a beautiful Riesling by KIWC to try & it was delicious, my old favourite Savvy B may have some competition now! 
And I assure you the wine I have had from Vinomofo is very drinkable and tastes like nothing my cat has produced! But in all seriousness, this wine was very nice & easy to drink. Like I said I am not a wine expert, so I am not going to describe the wine - but I really enjoyed it.


Cheers friends.

4 fun & easy St. Patrick's Day Crafts.

May your troubles be less and blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door. - Irish Blessing.
Hello friends!
St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow! (To be honest, for some reason I thought it was on the 21st!)
So this week I am bringing you 4 very fun & easy St. Patrick's Day crafts, I know they are almost a bit too late - but they use very basic craft supplies & are a lot of fun.
We did these yesterday as just a bit of fun & to do a craft as LuLu loves craft time, they turned out so sweet I thought I would share them with you all.

Pot of gold under the rainbow.
We made this craft unique by changing the way we did the rainbow, I was missing a few paint colours for the rainbow, so I had a stack of paint cards in the craft box so I cut them up and we made our rainbow a collage. I think it turned out lovely. 
You will need;
  • A paper plate.
  • Scissors.
  • Paint.
  • Glue
  • A way to decorate the rainbow, paint, colour pencils, texta, crayons, coloured paper - the choice is yours.
  • Cotton wool balls.
  • Gold Glitter.
How to;
  1. Cut out one half of the plate, leave a "handle" up top. It should look like this. 
  2. Paint the base of the paper plate "the pot" black. 
  3. Decorate the rainbow how you wish. 
  4. Attach cotton wool balls as little clouds/overflowing gold out of the pot. 
  5. Add gold glitter. We added it over the cotton wool balls and painted some craft glue onto the top of the pot for the "over flowing gold" look. 
  6. Admire your work. 
3 Leaf Clover.
We made this a 3 leaf clover, I did try a lucky 4 leaf clover - but it looked a bit awkward. The 3 leaves, look much better. This craft is so easy!
You will need;
  • 3 small paper plates.
  • A stapler (or a way to attach the plates together)
  • Green paint (or green colour pencils, crayons or pens)
  • 1 green pipe cleaner. 
How to;
  1. Attach 3 small paper plates together. 
  2. Paint the plates green. 
  3. Attach pipe cleaner as stem.
  4. Admire your 3 leaf clover!
      
Leprechaun. 
You will need;
  • 1 large paper plate.
  • A sheet of white paper or card.
  • Scissors.
  • Glue
  • Orange paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)
  • Green paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)
  • Black paint. 
  • Gold pen or paint.
How to;
  1. Cut out the centre of the paper plate. 
  2. Cut out the shape of a hat & also one strip of paper to be the hat band. 
  3. Paint your pieces. Hat band - black.

  4. Hat green. 
      
     
    Trent helping LuLu before he left for work.
  5. Paint the circle orange (like a beard & hair, you could also use cotton wool balls or another craft supply that you think looks like hair!) 
  6. Attach the hat to the beard & the hat band to the hat. I just glued them all together.
  7. Draw on a little gold buckle with a gold pen or paint. I used gold puffy paint.
  8. Say hello to your little leprechaun! Your child can even use this as a little mask, take a photo of their face through the cut out hole! 
Handprint 4 leaf clover.
This is so simple and only takes minutes to do and makes for a very sweet keepsake.
You will need;
  • 1 sheet of paper or cardboard.
  • Green paint.
  • A small set of hands. 
How to;
  1.  Paint your little ones hand. 
  2. Press hands onto paper. 
  3. Repeat 4 times, to make 4 leaves. 
  4. Draw/paint on a stem.
  5. Admire your sweet little lucky 4 leaf clover! 
I hope you enjoyed these very simple but very sweet crafts.
