DIY Summer vegetable and flower seed packaging

Simple Summer vegetable/flower seed packaging for gift giving This simple and personalized packaging is perfect for gift-giving. I once put together a gardening gift for my mother. It included a hand shovel, vegetable seeds, and a cute pot for planting. (And gardening gloves of course. I decided to put together this simple package for seeds. I purchased these cute tags at Target.     Fold your craft paper or card stock in half and cut. Staple the sides leaving an opening at the top. Using washi tape apply it to your packaging. I did this to cover the staples. Once you are done, you can either put your seed package directly into your handmade packaging, or you can open and drop your seeds into your package. If you drop your seeds directly into your packaging make sure to use washi tape to close off the top. This way the seeds are secure inside).  It's really that simple. Enjoy!

Play-Doh Cafe

Today at Play-Doh cafe, we grilled up some hot dogs, baked a delicious pizza, and found a one-of-a-kind recipe for mom's homemade meatballs to add to our Italian seasoned spaghetti. We served up root beer floats and  Italian cream sodas. Our pug dined in and when he was finished he left us a very nice tip! Oh, what fun we had with our pretend play. Pin for later

And a little flower...

Rain, Sunshine, Baking and more!

    What a lovely weekend it has been! Thursday we enjoyed some light rain. This weekend the weather went from cool, back to warmer temps. I've been enjoying opening up the windows and hanging a few clothes out on our portable clothesline. (We recently bought it, and I love it) I still use our dryer, but I like to change it up sometime. I've also been enjoying the time we spend out on our porch. I can't wait for Fall weather to arrive.   It's nice seeing some color in our vegetable garden.  Our daughter loves helping with picking tomatoes from the vine. We bought a few different pepper plants, and last weekend we cooked up a dish using some jalapenos from the garden. Our plan for our tomatoes is to add them when we make our chicken kabobs.   Over the weekend my husband decided to make some Jerky. We picked up Jerky cure and seasoning from  Sportsmen's warehouse. He made chicken and steak jerky. They turned out delicious! :) This morning, I
