How to marbled Easter eggs

how to marbled eggs

I’d never even heard of marbled Easter eggs until Martha came into my life.  I mean, who thinks up this stuff?  I can see a boardroom in Martha Stewart‘s immaculate and towering offices in Manhattan, “We need new eggs people, it’s time to mix it up!  Minions, I am QUEEN of crafts and I need new, better, inspiring eggs.  Let’s do marbled, they’re so now, so sophisticated.  So Upper East Side.” So friends, today we learn how to make marbled…

Fun birthday celebrations for you!

fun birthday celebrations for you

Birthdays are a big deal where I come from {Utah Valley thankyouverymuch} but in Viktor’s family they merit little more than a greeting card.  All the love falls on your patron Saint day in the {original} Czarnecki household.  When we were in college Viktor would have a huge mail day somewhere in September wherein he received the entire contents of a party store, but on his actual birthday not so much. I took the reins on that one as soon…

Easy valentine treat bags

DIY favor bags

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but you know that already.  You’re probably neck deep in chewy red candies at this point and I can’t say I blame you, we get as much Valentine’s candy as we do trick or treating loot around my house.  The kids already have it pouring out of their pockets and we’re still a week out. There’s only so much a mother can do, you feel me?  And that is to say, not much. I’m…

2011 holiday card

Christmas card

I almost scrapped holiday cards entirely this year.  They’re such a pain in the neck, and even though I ordered the postcards way back in October, I still addressed and personalized every last one of them {100 of them, in case you’re wondering}.  It takes time, money, and patience, all of which are running a little low right now. But there’s nothing I love more than mail in the month of December, when I get buckets of holiday cards and…
