Braided Spaghetti & Meatball Stuffed Bread

When you love carbs as much as I do, having the spaghetti IN the bread, just makes it 10x better!!  Amazing!!!  I saw a picture of it somewhere, can't remember if it was Facebook or Pinterest.  Either way, there were no instructions, so this is how I did it!  My extremely hard to please hubby, took this out of the oven and threatened to eat it all before I got home!!!    It was extremely tasty and quite versatile to fit your own tastes and preferences.

Teacher Supply Cake

My oldest is in year round school (munchkin will be joining him in July).  Because he was tracked out last week, it is teacher appreciation week this week.  Today was supply day.  So, I scoured Pinterest and the net looking for ideas.  Saw some pics of supply cakes and decided to give it a whirl.  Quite easy tho frustrating all at once at some points.)  I went to the dollar store and bought my supplies: Crayons, markers, dry erase markers, highlighters, erasers, tissue paper, double-sided tape, and containers (3 different sizes).  I used the tape to help hold the items in place while I attached the ribbons I already had here at home.  Then I stacked them and made a bunch of Tissue Paper Flowers to decorate and hide any problem areas.  It was a hit!!!  Soo glad!!!  Will definitely be doing this again!!!

Apple Puppets For Letter A Craft

This one was a HUGE hit!!  So huge, I forgot to take pics during the process and only remembers the after shot (while they were drying so the kids HAD to leave them alone!!  LOL)  It is also pretty quick.
