Yup, Hoppy Easter I said It

Yup, a Happy Hoppy Easter to you all!

I have SOO many excuses reasons as to why I have not posted but, let’s talk about the far more beautiful I found this morning. Sorry kiddo’s this ones for the adults :D

Ok, QUICK, before the family arrives take a quick visit to find thee most beautiful Easter Bunny Bunting {plus, free quick printable} in the sweetest colors, available via The Sweetest Occasion.

Just print out the bunting (a simple pdf file) on cardstock, glue, hang on some string or ribbon and voila! The sweetest Easter decor! {{ Plus, visit the entire website while you’re there. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.}} You’ll be left inspired and craving to create more than the norm.

Here’s a photo (rights belongs to its creator) of this simple stunning Easter Bunting (or garland here in Canada) so you can have a taste of what to expect:


Here’s a peek at our one Easter Egg I made with LO yesterday LOL! Nothing like the Sweetest Occasion but, we had good intentions. (Forgive us, we’re both sick!) You guessed it FROZEN themed.


FYI– blown egg, dipped in neon blue liquid food coloring, DollarStore sticker mirror glued white teeny Pom poms on top like snow, and the rest is all hot glue gun and sprinkles :D {{ Next week I will share all our Easter projects late with you. They’re sure to inspire many other craft ideas for you and your children!}}

I have also been working on many more posts behind the scenes, to share with you over the coming Spring weeks for Moms and Children. I look forward to catching up with all of my WP Fam soon!

For now, have a Happy Easter from our family to yours, we pray you see and feel the experiences The Lord has set out for you today, and everyday.

God Bless,

JayNine and Girlz

13 Ways To Overcome A Writer’s Block

I rarely re-blog, just because. I have been following this wonderful lady from the beginning of my little blogging career. She is much an inspiration for writing, social media, blogger tips, as she is for her incredible knowledge of the world of Interior Design. Today, I found a post of hers we can All Relate to: “Writers Block”! There are so many helpful tips here that I just had to share immediately. Please enjoy and I hope you find it as helpful as I do! –Jaynine xo

L' Essenziale Home Designs

Have you ever experienced that? You thought of a fantastic topic for an article, you picked up a catchy title, and perhaps even wrote the first sentence. And then… nulla… Your head seems to be empty and you mind is blocked. Messy thoughts are flying in disorder. I will open you a little secret: you are not the only one.

writer's block

I must confess that when I started blogging it took me two or sometimes even three days to write a single post. I was writing and then correcting and rewriting and editing again. I was so exhausted and overwhelmed with the process that at some point I almost decided to quit. Since then I improved my writing skills a lot. Now it usually takes me around two or three hours to write a new article for my blog. This allows me to publish more often which immediately results in increased…

Link Day Friday 

Now, for the links– I get excited when readers stop to click for a peek at these links;) More then just sharing the information, I have been following these sites and their curators for some time now. They’re part of my routine. Alot of them share even more blogger resources. Trust me, keep these on hand! I promise they will delight your inbox and are each creative, worthy reads. Whichever you chose here’s the best of late:

1). Sash, curator of Inked In Colour:  

Outside of her blogs natural exterior beauty, Sash expresses herself passionately on issues important to her, and her readers.  As an Australian born woman she offers thought and conversational provoking view points with graceful assertiveness. As a Mother, she offers us an in-depth look into her experience in fostering creativity in children, plus her parenting and the ever so relatable piece containing bitter/sweet battles with child- ‘Weaning Hell‘! We Moms have all had some trouble with that at some point! 

2).  Handmade Charolette 

A site you may already be happily familiar with. Handmade Charolette is a web-collection full of blogging Mom’s providing inspiration for creative learning, and handmade DIY projects for children. The main focus by its creator, is on DIY Crafts & Design for Kids. Like them on their  Facebook Page for much more community communication, follow up photos, and further fun links.

3).  Discovered through Handmade Charolette’s contributors, was the  Natalia Kramer on her Google Plus Profile. Posts, photos, and links of her DIY craft projects. Kramers designs bring a child’s imagination to life, with designs jumping off the page! 

4). Small for Big 

…is where I found a valuable ABC’s Letter Playground idea link! Mari Richards‘ blog contains happy colors, and crafting DIY’s I just cannot explain in words. Her children’s toy finds beyond creatively unique.

Share your favorite creative kids activity, craft makers, DIY-ers, or your own link below.

We’re a busy little family this weekend. Maybe I’ll upload “One Shot, Two Ways” at some point again, when time;) Check out my Pinterest Boards for much more “pin-spiration”. Children’s World, DIY, and Land Of Etsy are full of useful information.
