Garden Shower Favors

Last weekend we had a surprise shower at my house for my aunt. Well, it turned out she already knew...but the party was a huge success anyway.
We wanted the party to have a garden theme since my aunt loves to garden.
I made these quick and easy favors that I thought I would share with you.

You will need: 
small clay pots
packets of seeds
velum circles (I found at Joann's in the bridal section)
small card stock circles (I also found at Joann's in the card making section)
"Thank you" stamp
ink pad 

To make the favor I first stamped all the circles and cut the length of ribbon. I put the ribbon through the pre-punched hole. Then I carefully folded the seed packet twice, once vertically and once horizontally. Then I placed the folded see bag in the center of the velum and pulled it closed at the top. Finally I tied the ribbon with the tag already attached to make a bow. I place the velum/seed baggie in the clay pot.

Kid's Art Display

I have been doing some really fun art work with Daiya and Cole and they have been so excited to hang it up. The problem was I had no where to hang it. I searched the internet and Pinterest (of course) for some art display ideas and I meshed some of the ideas together to make my own art display in our kitchen. It was really easy to do and I am so happy with the result.

First I found a wall space in our kitchen where the kids usually wanted to hang their work anyway. Then I went to Lowes for a few, very inexpensive, items. I bought eye hooks ($0.98), picture hanging wire ($2.39), and curtain hanging clips ($3.75). Next, we drilled small holes and screwed in the eye hooks. Then we attached the picture wire.The picture wire wraps really easily around the eye hook. It is almost like a twist tie! Finally we attached the clips (without the rings that they came with) and ordinary wall is now a children's art gallery!
