hippity hoppity – easter basket idea for little ones

March 24, 2016 0

Call me crazy, but I'm hosting Easter this year and will have 18 people over on Sunday...eeeeek. On top of that, the hubby came home from a business trip with a cold that I now have and we're going away for a quick trip to Sonoma through Saturday. So yes, I'm slightly crazy! I recently got a Silhouette Cameo and decided that I was gonna put it to use this Easter. I'm a little sad that I didn't start using it sooner! Check out the place cards I made for my table.

3.1415926...and that's all I've got when it comes to reciting Pi. While the rest of the numbers are still fuzzy, I can remember seeing the banner hung around the perimeter of our 7th grade classroom. If only I'd paid closer attention in class 20 years ago, I might be able to give you more than 8 numbers! How do I like to celebrate Pi Day? With a delicious treat, of course! I originally had a cute St. Patty's Day craft lined up for the blog today (don't worry, I'll post it soon), but yesterday I realized that I needed something for Pi Day. I totally cheated though, because I didn't make this cherry pie. The amazing people at Susie Cakes did all the work for me and all I had to do was take pictures and eat it (really tough job, I know)....
