Happy New Years Eve!

Sabrina’s twins James and Alex wanted matching dinosaur tees based off their favorite Byron Barton book Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, so she drew a few up! All you need is a blank tee, a sharpie, and your kids favorite illustration! Quick tips to avoid fading after wash: Soak overnight in a quart of cool water with a cup of white vinegar. Always turn the tee inside out before washing.

As summer comes to a close, we can’t help but reflect on all the adventures that have filled our days for the past few months. In that spirit of adventure, we decided to put some old maps to good use and make envelope liners. Liners are a great way to utilize old magazine pages, scraps of gift wrap or calendars that have served their time.

While we haven’t had a chance to come up with a fun craft project for Easter yet we love seeing everyone else’s projects popping up online. To celebrate the season here are some of our favorite Spring projects from around the web. Shown above are Moustache Easter Eggs from the blog No.2 Pencil. She uses a craft cutting machine to make the vinyl moustaches, but it would be just as fun for kids to draw them on the eggs with a Sharpie. Adding eyes and some hair would give these eggs even more personality.
You probably noticed we have a thing for circus characters around here. So we fell in love when we spotted this guy over on Etsy. Who wouldn’t love this illustrated cup and matching wooden egg? He can be found in Sweet Bestiary’s shop here.
How adorable is this burlap bunny table runner? We love the little bunny silhouette and the yarn cotton tail. You can find the instructions to make this sweet table runner over at Eclectically Vintage.
How could you go wrong with old school egg dying and stamping? We love the way these eggs look and it’s such a simple project. Read more over on Lovely Indeed.
