My first necklace!

My awesome friend Veronica has this super cute necklace that she wears. I love it.
I decided I wanted to sort of recreate something similar for Collin's teacher. I had a hard time finding beads but ended up with something I really liked.
Veronica's necklace...

The one I made...

I made this organza/tulle clip that can be removed and worn in your hair.

Collin's teacher realy likes sea stones and similar colors, so I thought this little gem was perfect.

Please tell me what you think. I'd love some imput. I was thinking about making some more similar ones.

365 Project

Hello blog friends.
While blog hunting today I saw a post over at Today's Housewife called 365 project.
After reading all about it, I decided I am definately interested in doing it!! Its right up my alley. So for the next 365 days I will be taking pictures everyday and selecting one that embraces something we did that day or whatever. I'm really excited.
I'm actually gonna say I started it yesterday cuz Collin(my 5 year old)lost his 2nd tooth and it was a pretty neat day.
If you feel you are up for the challenge, jump on board!!

Brownies and Chocolate dipped Strawberries

I've been away from bloggy land WAY TOO LONG! I'm trying to organize my house and its taking forever!! I'm surrounded by messes and half organized rooms, but I WILL get it done!! Anyway...
Around these parts I'm known for my chocolate dipped strawberries! :)
They are so yummy!
Ryan asked for some for his birthday, in April, piled onto brownies! They were super delicious.
This past week we celebrated Collin's birthday at school(even though its not til July) and for his snack, he asked for brownies with dipped strawberries on top!
So, I made em again! Instead of dipping though, *I drizzled the chocolate. Was easier and you cant really dip wet strawberry pieces too well.
Here is what they looked like! YUM

I boxed them up nicely and brought them to school!

The kids LOVED them! Each one was given a nice top of whipped cream!

He dug right in like a champ!
