It's Almost Easter...so that means...PEEPS!

This week is my Spring Break......YAHOO!  My students have definitely made me earn it this year.  Whew!  They keep me on my toes, that's for sure.  My plans for the week include crafting, crafting, getting ready for Easter, crafting.....did I say crafting?  Yep....that's all I want to do this week.  I haven't been able to do ANYTHING crafty since President's Day weekend in February.  Now THAT'S sad.  One of the projects I've been wanting to do since last year was to package up some of my favorite Easter treats (peeps) for friends and family.  I even downloaded a bag topper last year from www.Nothingbutcountry.com.


Here's the original picture from www.Nothingbutcountry.com that inspired me to try this idea.  Click on the link below to look at the picture.

 It was this year, with my new obsession with Pinterest, that I found a combination of Peeps, graham crackers, and chocolate.....Peep S'mores!  I LOVE IT!  I now not only have a S'mores pinboard, but also have a Peeps pinboard.  SO much fun!
Here's the idea that I pinned with the Peep S'mores from http://confetti.typepad.com/confetti/2011/04/fashback-friday-peeps-smores.html 

THANK YOU for your inspiration, ideas and generosity in sharing your downloads!  So.....here's what I came up with:







WARNING.....changing subjects......


So....Nathan and I decided to go to Target (one of my FAVORITE stores EVER) this morning to grab a few things we needed at home and to get the supplies I needed for the above project.  We just happened to go by the gardening section....and what did I find?????  Another of my latest obsessions....a super adorable owl.  I think I might just have to write about my owl obsession in another post....so here's the super cute owl...

 
Now....Super Adorable Owl only cost me $12.99.  Nathan was trying to convince me to buy Super Adorable Owl's (I think that's his name) little sister.  Yep, he has a little sister.  She's shorter, red and round....ALSO super cute.  She's only $9.99....and might have to come home with me really soon.  Super Adorable Owl ALSO has an older (I think it's older because it's taller) brother.  He's green....and only cost $19.99.  I'm trying to decide if I can handle 3 Super Adorable Owl Siblings.  Hmmmm......  What do you think????? Now...Super Adorable Owl was originally bought to go in my garden, but I'm not sure I could stand the fact that Super Adorable Owl will get dirty and possibly be covered in moss (one of the wonderful things about living in the Pacific Northwest).....so right now he's nesting on top of my piano.  It actually looks really nice there.


My question for you.....What's YOUR latest obsession????

I love that owl!!! I'm obsessed w/them lately too! I pretty much hate all little babyish things, but the one thing I think is cute for our baby boy's nursery is owls! I might have to go get that one soon!!
