Monday Made It!! #4

Yay! Monday Made It! Tara at 4th Grade Frolics has keep me busy and motivated this summer. I have made several fun things for my daughter and actually completed a few things for next school year. Thanks Tara!

This week I decided to catch up (or try to) with things I have wanted to do around the house. First, I made sensory balloons for my daughter that I found on Tot Treasures. She loves squeezing them, as I was making them she would say 'More balloons mommy.' I think she likes them :) We talked about bumpy and smooth, but we are still working on that concept.

I filled my balloons with rice, large uncooked beans, corn kernels, flour, small pom-poms, coffee, and sand.

Easy project and she played for hours with the balloons. So far, they have not busted open :)

Project #2 - Wedding Pictures 

My youngest sister was married in January and I have yet to hang a picture. I finally got the wedding CD, printed the pictures and put them in a frame. YAY! Now I am after my other sister for wedding pictures from her wedding 3 years ago that was 2 months before my daughter was born. Her pictures were put on the back burner. I would like to make a family wedding wall. (She has a just walking, 10 month old, so it may take a while) For now I will hang one set of wedding pictures.

Project #3 - Meal Calendar

I found this idea on Pinterest via Girl Loves Glam. I attached magnetic strips to the back so that it will stick to the fridge. Now what I plan to cook will be listed right on the fridge door.

Project #4 - Boston Cream Cupcakes

Before my daughter was born I would bake all summer long. Now that I have a toddler running around I try to bake but it doesn't happened as much as I would like. This week I made Boston Cream Cupcakes for a luncheon at my husbands office. I found the recipe on American's Test Kitchen - Feed through Pinterest. They were a hit. 

I am now off to clean out and organize my closet. Happy Monday!


  1. The wedding picture frame came out really nice. I love the idea of your meal board. What a great idea to use a dry erase board with magnets. Thanks for sharing.
