DIY CORK BOARD WALL ART

DIY Cork Board Wall Art | Sweet Peas & Saffron

I have had another fun crafty time this week-end.  Actually, I did two crafts {the other one to be posted next week, probably}.  You can check out a preview on my Instagram.  This crafting thing is kind of addicting!

I have a really huge art project planned to hang over our fireplace.  I have my canvas and paints all lined up and ready but I chickened out.  I decided to do this, a less intimidating art project.  It ended up being really fun!

Sesame & Sriracha Soba Noodle Salad with Rainbow Veggies | Sweet Peas & Saffron

I seem to post a fair amount of sweets & baking.  Baking is fun to blog about!  It’s pretty, and colorful, and fun, and sometimes just for your inner kiddo.  I have fun trying to think of how I can jazz up my favorite blondie recipe.

But in reality, baking is only a small fraction of what we consume at our house.  Our regular go-to meal is almost always a big salad.  It’s a salad, but big (anyone watch that Seinfeld episode?)

This salad I’m sharing with you today is proof that sweets & baking aren’t the only things that can be big and bright and fun!

GLAZED LEMON COOKIES

Glazed Lemon Cookies | Sweet Peas & Saffron

I know, I know.  It’s only April.  But I am longing for summer.  Here, in no particular order is what I am looking forward to this summer:

- Margaritas, barbecues, fresh fruit and garden fresh veggies.

- Hiking in the Rockies, ice cream cones followed by river walks/bike rides.

- The smell of blooming lilacs and sweet peas.

- So You Think You Can Dance + wine + pedicures {my summer tradition}

- Camping {maybe- not sure about doing that with a baby!}.  But definitely S’mores.

- Sundresses and flip flops.

- Root beer floats.

DIY GEOMETRIC PAPER WALL HANGING

cubes CG blog

Look!  I did another craft!

Well…this one has actually been in the making for awhile, but I just couldn’t seem to get the last steps finished until this week.

I’m not entirely sure what to call it…like a mobile?  But that hangs on the wall?  Whatever it ‘is’, I’m liking the finished product, more than I thought I would!

CREME EGG BLONDIES

Creme Egg Blondies | Sweet Peas & Saffron

I’ve had a really adult week.  I did responsible stuff.

I went to the dentist and the optometrist.  I spent money on boring stuff like glasses and socks.  I changed a lot of diapers.

Sometimes being an adult is such a drag.

So…I made something fun, totally un-serious, and for the kiddos.  Well, my inner-kiddo, since my real kiddo has only just started eating mushy apples.
