Okay - first thing that I must admit...I love the name of Jen Hadfield's blog - Tatertots and Jello!  If you are a mom, or anyone who at some point has to feed a child on a regular basis, chances are tater tots and jello have served as a main staple for at least one meal.


What is it about cereal that is so addicting?  I'm not sure if it's just me, but whenever there is a box of cereal in our house, I end up eating it in like 2 days.  I do this thing where I fill my bowl, put in my milk, and then have to keep going back to the box to fill and refill until all the milk has been used up. Needless to say, I don't buy cereal often.

My mom is an amazing seamstress.  She used to sew all my clothes, as well as my dolls' clothes when I was a kid.  Sadly, I never really inherited that talent.  I can sew out of necessity (think buttons, mending holes, and the occasional hobby horse head), but it’s not my forte.  I much prefer using duct tape.

Perhaps it’s because I've just spent 10 days with our 3 year old Godson, or just that I’m intrigued by the notion of “edible” art, but I love this post about painting with jello.  I agree, it sounds sticky, but as I’ve always said to folks who worry about mess – plop your kids in the bathtub, or weather permitting, head outdoors - and let them have at it.

It’s that very tricky time of the year, when I’m not sure what type of craft to highlight….is it still winter?  Do we start looking forward to Spring?   It’s a bit of a conundrum!  Given that Punxsutawney Phil committed us to 6 more weeks of winter, I think I’ll go with winter.  Forgive me if you are socked in and looking for something to brighten your spirits.  However, this craft is sparkly enough to give that mean old Grinch of a winter a good kick in the toucas.
