This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BreakfastEssentials http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

First, let me answer the question you're all thinking: A chocolate milkshake for breakfast?! Yes. And it's even healthy!! I'll give you a minute to think about that and to wipe any drool off your keyboard...

This chocolate milkshake smoothie is made with Carnation Breakfast Essentials, so it's a healthy and quick breakfast option for kids, teens, and adults! Not to mention that you can whip up this milkshake in just minutes, so it makes for a great breakfast, or even as a healthy dessert.

My daughter loved this smoothie and I loved that I was giving her something healthy even though it tasted like a treat! You can also add in any other fruit variations to mix things up and suit your tastes.

Unfortunately, my husband is allergic to bananas, so he couldn't try it. I didn't want him to miss out though, so I made him a chocolate milkshake that's a whole lot healthier than one you'll get in a restaurant (but tastes just as good!)

1 cup (2-3 scoops) vanilla frozen yogurt

DIY Clay Bead Necklace


DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Making jewelry with Premo Clay is so fun, and a lot easier than you'd think! If you are new to clay, don't be scared to try it. This tutorial will hopefully help you see that you CAN make your own jewelry, even if you are a beginner. This necklace was so fun to make, and I love how bright the colors are. It'll be perfect to wear this spring and summer!

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

If you're just starting out and wanting to experiment with Premo Clay, I'd highly recommend getting the Premo Clay 24 color sampler set. I personally loved that there was a sparkly/pearlescent of each color, along with a solid, including a silver and couple shades of gold. Having a selection both saves money in the long run, and most importantly, gives you options when you are working on a project.

The Sculpey Bead Maker kit definitely impressed me. If you're into working with beads at all, this kit is extremely user-friendly and fun to use! Even my four year old practiced making a few beads for herself!! The Sculpey Clay Bead Baking rack came in handy to bake the beads without getting any flat spots from placing the round beads on a baking sheet. So you get perfectly round beads every time!!

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

I  usually purchase chunky beads from various craft stores and sites to use for making statement jewelry, but now I'm able to make my own beads instead with a little help from the Sculpey Bead Maker kit. The few times I've tried to make my own without the kit, they came out a little wonky and misshapen.

The kit includes all the parts to make 13 mm, 16 mm, and 18 mm beads, including measuring cups and inserts. Everything is even labeled so you are sure to be making exactly what you need. The best part is, since you are making them yourself, you can choose any colors of clay to make your project unique and just how you want it!

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Like I mentioned before, the kit is super simple to use. In four simple steps, you can create beads and create jewelry the very same day! Work on a washable surface, and keep in mind that clay *can* stain your work area, hands, and clothing. Wash hands between each color of clay to prevent accidentally mixing any colors together. Keep clays wrapped when not being used.

Step 1: Fill the measuring cup with clay. Press the clay down in so you don't have any air bubbles. Like with cooking measuring cups, you want the top of the cup to be flat. Remove any excess clay from the top with your fingers or a knife.

Step 2: Remove the clay from the cup and roll it in the palms of your hands to create a ball. It doesn't have to be perfect, but try to get it smooth. Remove any dings or scrapes in the clay by rubbing it with your finger.

Step 3: Place the ball into the insert. It should fit snug, but you shouldn't have to push it in. It should fit perfectly if it fit in the measuring cup. If you have to force it to fit, it's too large. Remove a little bit of clay and place it back with the block. If it's too small, the bead maker won't help much and it will just fall out. After you work with the bead maker, you'll be able to get a feel for how it works.

Step 4: Place the top of the bead maker on top over the clay ball (make sure the inserts line up), and slowly slide the both sides of the bead maker back & forth 1-2 inches in each direction. This is smoothing out the ball and making it more even. Remove the bead from the roller. If it looks perfect, then remove the bead. If it needs a little more rounding, put it back in the roller and slowly roll back & forth a few more times.

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Once your bead is done, open the Sculpey Clay Bead Baking rack and carefully get out a skewer. Be careful, the edges are VERY sharp!! While the bead is still in the holder, poke the skewer down the center of the bead until it goes all the way through. You will need to add a little pressure, and that will squish the bead a little.

To fix the bead if it gets misshapen, pull the skewer back out, and re-roll the bead in the bead maker. I found that sliding the top over the bead a couple of times worked just fine, and kept the hole from the skewer visible. If I slid it too many times, I couldn't see the hole anymore and had to poke it again.

Add a skewer to every bead, and place the bead skewers and plate on a baking sheet. If you are making multiple beads, you can add multiple beads to each skewer, and add a skewer to both sides of the plate so you can bake them all at once.

Follow cooking instructions on your specific clay packaging, and let cool completely before working with the beads. 

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Now for the necklace tutorial!! The beads are all ready to go, and the skewer helped in making a hole in each bead for easy threading. This necklace looks a little complicated, but is quite simple to make and goes pretty quick. You can find all the jewelry supplies and almost any craft or jewelry supply store.

Supplies:
6 18mm Beads, any color
Bead Wire
Chain
4 Crimp Beads
5 Small Jump Rings
1 Large Jump Ring
1 Lobster Clasp
Jewelry Tools: Wire Cutter, Pliers, Crimping Pliers

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Cut a length of beading wire (about 8 inches or so) with the wire cutters. At one end of the beading wire, add a crimp bead, then a small jump ring. Thread the end of the wire back through the crimp bead and pull down so that the jump ring is attached to the wire loop (see above). With crimping pliers, crimp or squish the crimping bead closed to keep the jump ring attached.

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Add three beads to the wire, then add the crimping bead & jump ring to the other end and crimp closed. Repeat for the remaining three beads.

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Decide which length of beads will be the bottom of your necklace. Open one of the jump rings with the pliers, and attach it to one end of the necklace. Repeat for the other side.

Count up about 8 chain links (could be more or less depending on your specific chain) and add the other length of beads like you did the bottom set.

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Since the chain is still one piece, it may or may not fit over your head. Just to be sure you don't break the chain trying to see if it does or not, find the center of the chain by laying the necklace down on a table and pulling the top of the necklace up to a point. Eyeball the center link and cut it with your wire cutters. Be careful to aim the chain down when cutting so you don't get a rogue chain link to the eye!!

Add the large jump ring to one end of the chain, and the small jump ring to the other. Close the large ring with the pliers. Add the lobster clasp to the small jump ring, then close with the pliers. Now you can take the necklace on and off with ease.

DIY Clay Bead Necklace at artsyfartsymama.com #jewelry #sculpeyprojects

Now your necklace is ready to wear!! They make great gifts, or fun ways to dress up your wardrobe. Plus, you can proudly say you made it yourself when someone compliments you on it!! Bead making has never been easier, and I'm starting to think it has become one of my new favorite hobbies.

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

We can't wait for summer to get here! With the weather getting warmer and warmer, it will be here in no time. My daughter loves to swim and will be taking swim lessons this summer. So, to carry all her swim accessories, we decided to make her her very own beach bag! She helped with the whole process and we had so much fun!! 

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

You only need a few supplies to give your beach bag this fun stenciled look. All you'll need is some Elmer's School Glue Gel (the blue gel works best), a canvas tote bag, Rit Dye, and a stencil if you want to create an image that way. Freehand designs work great, too, and are simpler for kids!!

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

The technique is sometimes called batik, but basically it is just the Elmer's Gel Glue working as a color resist to the dye. This technique should work on almost any kind of fabric, and it's so easy that anyone can do it!! Check your tote instructions to see if you need to prewash or anything before you start. Ours didn't need anything, so we were ready to go as soon as we brought it home from the store.

We cut out a mermaid image with the Cricut Explore on some adhesive cardstock for our stencil. You could easily hand cut your stencil if you don't have a cutter.

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

Place a piece of cardboard inside the bag just in case the glue seeps through. Lay the bag flat on your work space and place the stencil down on the bag. Press down all the edges to prevent the glue from going under the stencil while you work.

When you're choosing and image or text, keep in mind that the image won't come out perfect in the end. The edges will blend with the dye, and you'll most likely get a little dye bleeding through some areas where the glue is thin. So keep your designs simple without a lot of detail.

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

Since I had some areas of the stencil not wanting to stick, I held it down, and added a line of glue to the canvas. I used my finger to rub in the glue. Around the edges, work from the outside in so the glue is less likely to seep underneath. You can use a brush if you want, but my finger worked fine. Just try to get the glue on evenly throughout the entire stencil. You'll need at least two coats of glue on the stencil. Let each coat dry before adding another one.

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

When you get the last coat on, slowly peel up the stencil. Your design is still wet, so DON'T TOUCH IT! Lay it somewhere where it won't be bothered, and let it dry at least 12 hours. The glue will be clear, and not sticky to the touch when dry.

DIY Mermaid Beach Bag at artsyfartsymama.com #summer #RitDye #Elmers #Cricut

Now it's time to dye!! This is the first time I used Rit Dye. I'll admit I was very nervous to try it, but it turned out to be so easy! Even my daughter helped. We decided to dye the bag Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year Radiant Orchid by mixing 4 tsp liquid Petal Pink + 1/2 tsp liquid Purple Rit Dye for every quart of warm (not hot) water.

We doubled the recipe and poured it all in a bucket. Be sure to wear plastic gloves while you work with the dye, unless you want purple hands for a few days. Carefully submerge the bag into the dye. We left it in the dye for 30-35 minutes. The longer the item is in the dye bath, the darker the color. You might need to swish it around a little in the dye during the process to make sure everything is getting dyed evenly.

Once it's the shade you want, remove it from the dye and rinse in cold water until the water runs clear. Most of the glue will have washed off by now and you'll see your fabulous design!! Hang it to dry, then wash by hand with some soap. Make sure there isn't any more glue left on your bag and hang or machine dry.

The bag will look darker when wet, and will fade slightly after washing, so just keep that in mind!

Your bag is now ready to take to the pool, beach, or even makes a great library bag (for those who love to spend the summer reading)!! My daughter loves her mermaid bag and she loved getting to help with such a fun project to kick off summer!

Free Printable Birthday Bingo

Playing Bingo at parties is a fun tradition for our family. If you have any birthdays coming up soon, you're in luck (sorry I didn't have it done earlier for birthdays we've missed!!). I had a lot of fun putting this Birthday Bingo set together. With the game being mostly images, it's easy for kids of all ages to play. So go grab some candy, print out the Bingo sets, and get playing!

Free Printable Birthday Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com #birthday #freeprintable #printable #bingo

Just like my Halloween BingoThanksgiving Bingo, Christmas Bingo, and Easter Bingo, I'm sure this version will be a hit at any birthday party, young or old!

Download the Birthday Bingo Set
(single PDF file includes 8 Bingo cards and calling pieces)


I've gotten a lot of requests to make more than 8 Bingo cards for larger groups that will be playing Bingo. To help solve this problem without having to create a whole bunch of card designs, I've put together a version that will make it easy for everyone to customize their own Bingo card.

Free Printable Birthday Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com #birthday #freeprintable #printable #bingo

Print out the Blank Birthday Bingo Set, which comes with a blank card (with the "free" space already added), all 24 Bingo pieces, and the calling cards. Print out the cards on cardstock, and the Bingo pieces on cardstock or regular copy paper.

Cut the Bingo pieces by following the lines. Glue the pieces wherever you want on the card with glue stick or Elmer's glue until all the spaces (except the "free" space) are covered. This would be a fun activity for older kids to do all on their own. Younger children will need some assistance with the cutting, but my daughter had no problem gluing all the pieces down herself.

(single PDF file includes blank Bingo card, Bingo pieces, and calling pieces)

Free Printable Birthday Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com #birthday #freeprintable #printable #bingo

Game Instructions 
1. Pick some kind of object to mark your squares: candy corn, beans, M&Ms, smarties, wrapped candy, cereal, or any other small items work great!
2. Give each player a Bingo card and markers (or put your own together with the DIY set). Have each player put a marker over the free space.
3. The caller will draw a calling piece and announce the item on the card. Each player will cover that item on their card with a marker. Once a player has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), they call out "BINGO!" and win the game!

Some things you should know before downloading:
*Artsy-Fartsy Mama printables are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
*You may NOT modify, re-sell, redistribute, or claim the design as your own.
*Please do not remove the credits/watermarks.
*If you post this on the internet, credit must be given to Artsy-Fartsy Mama & linked back to my blog.

Download Instructions:
On the top left under "File", click the "Download" option. A pop-up window should appear. Make sure the "Save File" option is selected, then click OK to download.

To lengthen the life of the prints, I would recommend printing the Bingo cards and calling pieces on cardstock and then laminating. All files are 8.5x11 inches and put together in a single PDF format.


Have fun!! Would love to hear from you if you play using my printable!

DIY Yarn Wreath

DIY Yarn Wreath at artsyfartsymama.com #wreath #yarn

We just moved into a new home, and I decided I needed a new piece of home decor to accent our entry wall. To make this wreath, you only need a few simple supplies (some of which you might already have on hand), and it comes together really quickly! It's easy to customize for any personality or color scheme, and it's the type of craft that is practically fool-proof (as long as you can manage using a glue gun!).

DIY Yarn Wreath at artsyfartsymama.com #wreath #yarn

I wanted my wreath to be thicker than the usual wreath form, so I bought two styrofoam wreath forms. One that is 12 inch and the other is a 7 inch. The 7 inch form didn't fit perfectly inside the larger wreath form, but with a little effort, I was able to push it in without a problem.

DIY Yarn Wreath at artsyfartsymama.com #wreath #yarn

Once the wreath forms were put together, I started wrapping the wreath in Lion Brand Yarn in Vanna's Choice Yarn: Silver Heather. I found it easiest to tape the end of the yarn down on the back of the wreath, and then carefully pull it around up through the center. This process took the longest, but if you put a movie in while you wrap, it goes a lot faster!!

DIY Yarn Wreath at artsyfartsymama.com #wreath #yarn

The flowers are all cut out of felt, and are super easy and quick to put together. The loopy flowers are the most work of all the flowers, but is really simple!! I bought sheets of craft felt in yellow, blue, and white. The great thing about making these flowers is that you don't have to cut perfectly!! You won't even be able to tell if you cut crooked!!

1. To make the loopy flower, cut a strip of felt about 2-3 inches wide (adjust width for different size flowers), and the longest length of the felt sheet (about 9 inches).
2. Fold it in half lengthwise, and glue the open sides shut with a glue gun.
3. With scissors, cut every 1/8 inch apart on the folded edge along the entire length of felt, being careful not to cut all the way through the glued edge.
5. Roll the strip tightly, adding a little glue to the bottom edge while rolling to keep it from slipping & unrolling.
6. Turn the pom pom over and fluff it out. The back will be flat, so it's easily attachable to the wreath.

The other flowers (on the sides that are white and blue), are all just 5 circles cut out. One circle is the base, then you fold the other circles in half. Glue the pointed edges of the folded circles on the center of the base circle. Add one more to the center, then fluff out the flower. You get different size flowers from cutting different size circles. You can see a photo tutorial from some hair clips I made here.

The tighter rosettes (like the one with the silver bead center) is just one large circle. Then, you start on the edge of the circle and cut a spiral to the center. Start at the outer edge, and roll the spiral tightly, gluing along the way to keep it from coming unrolled. When you get to the end, glue the edge down, and leave the rosette as-is, or glue a small bead to the center for some visual interest.

DIY Yarn Wreath at artsyfartsymama.com #wreath #yarn

Arrange the flowers on the wreath, THEN glue them down. I'm indecisive when it comes to arrangements, so gluing them down first would not be the best idea if you want to change your mind later. The flowers definitely can be rearranged or removed after they've been glued, but it is a little work and you risk stretching the yarn. So, just trust me when I say to lay it out first, then glue once you've decided!

When the wreath is just how you want it, hang it up on a wreath hanger or a nail on the wall and enjoy!!
