Mother’s Day is the perfect time for showing our moms just how much we appreciate them! Think of how much your mom has done for you without complaining and grumbling. Whether it was taking me to dance practice or dropping me at a friend’s house, my mom was happy to do it. Here are a few ‘do it yourself’ gifts to show a way of repaying them this Mother’s Day!

Chelsea Crockett - Painted PotsHere is a perfect suggestion for those who are a little more artistic! If your nearby pottery shop doesn’t sell one, find a different store where you can buy a pot. If you can find a white one, even better! Then buy some acrylic paints and go to town! After finishing your masterpiece, let it dry and add some of your mom’s favorite flowers. Don’t forget to keep them hydrated and in the sunlight!

For those who struggle with their artistic side, here is a perfect way to thank your mom for all she’s done. For the nights your mom has stayed up waiting for you to get home or taking care of you when you’re sick, make her a sleep basket. If your mom’s a tea drinker, get all different kinds of tea for her to make before bedtime (peppermint, green, lemon, etc.). Other things to put in the basket could include a candle, lotion, sleep mask, blanket, “do not disturb” sign, etc.

Another cute idea is to take a bunch of old family recipes and make them into one big cookbook! Or try a coupon book with things such as “good for one family game night/movie night” or “good for dinner cooked by me!” Stuff like that shows that the little things do count!

Comment below any other cool ideas you have in mind!  XO – Chels

            Breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day!  Starting your day off with a healthy meal is a great way to fuel your metabolism and get your day going.  Sometimes, it’s not always easy to make yourself a good breakfast when you you’re in a rush for school or work, but it IS possible!  Get rid of that boring cereal or granola bar and rethink breakfast with these new and creative ideas. 

            Toast is one of the most popular breakfast sides.  With so many topping choices, the variety is endless!  So what if you’re sick of the typical butter and jelly?  Try topping your toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas or any flavor of cream cheese with a handful of blueberries and strawberries.  Toast doesn’t have to be boring!

            If you like salty breakfasts try Egg Beaters!  It’s eggs already mixed up, so all you have to do is pour and cook!  They come in all different flavors including three cheese and southwest.  Try making an omelet stuffed with your favorite meat, veggies, and cheeses.  If you don’t have time to cook in the morning, make pre-made omelet muffins.  Start by greasing a muffin pan so the eggs don’t stick.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and any toppings you would like, including meat, cheese, and veggies.  Fill each muffin cup evenly and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.  Now, you have breakfast ready in advance.  Just heat and enjoy!  Chelsea Crockett- omelette muffins

            Never skip out on breakfast!  Your body will love you if you fill it up with a hearty and healthy breakfast.  Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring.  Get creative and rethink breakfast!

Love,

Hey insiders,
               Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  It’s always fun to bake something creative for that special someone in your life.  It’s also fun to bake treats for others that you love like your grandparents, your friends, or even a teacher.  Below I’ve included three different goodies that would make anyone’s mouth water.
               I always love to bake heart shaped cut out cookies.  A relative’s sugar cookie recipe is the always the best way to go.  My family and I like to use different shaped sizes of hearts and decorate them with pink, red, white, and purple icing.  We top them off with sugar sprinkles.
              Another yummy idea is to bake a heart shaped cake!  You can purchase a heart shaped pan or two and bake a cake in them.  Chelsea Crockett - Rice CrispiesHave fun icing for decorating your cake.  This will show your “special someone” that you took the time to make something fun and creative.  And don’t forget delicious!  
               If baking is not your thing, you can always make some rice crispy treats on the stove top.  You can use a cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of the treats. You can also use popsicle or lollipop sticks to slide into each snack.  Feel free to decorate the rice crispy treats with icing if you really LOVE sugar!  I hope these ideas will help you spread love this Valentine’s Day!

                                                                         Hugs and kisses,

            Hello lovelies!

            One of my favorite things about autumn is the fun that comes with Halloween.  You can find pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on almost every street.  Aside from being perfect decorations for the season, carving and decorating pumpkins is a fun activity no matter what age you are!  Whether you’re carving for fun or for a decorating competition, you’re going to need unique thoughts to make your pumpkin your own!

            A great idea I know girls wilChelsea Crockett - Glitter Pumpkinl love is to glitter-up your pumpkins.  Lay out a few pieces of newspaper and set out your pumpkin.  The best way to do this is to purchase a can of spray adhesive.  Spray your preferred deign on your pumpkin.  While it’s still wet, sprinkle whatever color glitter you want on the glue.  It should turn out girly, sparkly, and attention-catching!

            Chelsea Crockett - Fretwork PumpkinOne idea that’s not just for the ladies, is a fretwork patterned jack-o-lantern.  An example of this, is the picture on the left.  After scooping out the seeds and insides of the pumpkin, you will be ready to go. To begin this design, take a thick piece of tape and make a ring around your pumpkin.  You’ll need to have a drill with two different sized drill bits, one large and one small.  Then, drill rows of circles around the tape creating a design you think looks best!  When your design is complete, place a votive candle inside the pumpkin and light it. 

            Voila!  You have a polka dotted, glowing jack-o-lantern!

            I hope these ideas gave you a little originality this fall.  I can’t wait to see how yours all turned out!

             Hey everybody!  With Father’s Day right around the corner, you’ll need to start thinking about gift ideas!  You can always go the easy route, but I’m going to give you a few ideas to make his gift meaningful and creative this year!Chelsea Crockett - Tie Cake

             One way to impress your dad is baking him sweets or a cake.  All over the internet, you can find cute ideas for cakes such as in the shape of a tie or a sports themed cake.  Cake pops and cupcakes are also a fun way to show off your baking skills.

           Chelsea Crockett - Grilling Accessories If your dad’s in to grilling, you can purchase grilling accessories such as grill spatulas or a thermometer.  If you’re interested in purchasing these, click here!  If he’s in to cooking, try buying him cook books with yummy recipes that he can make for the whole family!

            Instead of being the chef, maybe your father is a sports fanatic!  Buying him his favorite team’s jersey is a good, and not too expensive, way to make him smile.  If you have a higher budget, purchase a ticket or two to a baseball, football, or hockey game (whatever your old man prefersWink).

            Besides buying him a present, making him a homemade card is heartfelt and just as meaningful.  Be sure to write inside the card and tell your dad just how much he means to you.  He would probably appreciate that gift more than anything else!  So get creative and show your love for your dad this holiday!

                                                            XOXO-Chelsea
