Easter eggs, hold the sugar high

Easter eggs, hold the sugar high

Nothing like a holiday to make me feel like the harried mom buying last-minute decorations that probably aren’t even worth saving for next year. That’s just bad for my wallet and bad for the earth. So this Easter, I’m ahead of the game, thanks to the...
Felt like Easter

Felt like Easter

Much as I love to color eggs with my kids, there are only so many hard-boiled eggs one family can eat.  And while the plastic eggs aren’t perishable, they aren’t particularly attractive or earth-friendly either. These felted Easter eggs from astashtoys are...
