Recently I have seen a lot of beautiful terrariums in the blogosphere and have wanted to make my own. I don’t want to have to take care of additional plants so I decided to make a butterfly jar instead. I can set this arrangement on a shelf and not have to worry about whether it is getting enough sunlight and water as it needs neither.
Today I am very excited to be guest blogging on A Glimpse Inside Blog while Allison is on blogging maternity leave. Here is a preview of my guest post on DIY Paper & Tape Butterflies:
I encourage you to stop by Allison’s blog to see how I made these butterflies. If you are interested in seeing how I made the flower, check out my post on DIY Paper Magnolias.
Today is a busy day on Scissors and Spoons and this is the first of three posts I have planned for the day!
First, I am pleased to announce that I am accepting submissions for guest posts for consideration. I know many of my readers enjoy cooking and crafting as I have received several photos of delectable looking dishes. If you are interested in submitting a guest post, please review my blog policies for more information.
Second, later today I will be guest blogging on A Glimpse Inside Blog. It is my first guest post and I hope that you will stop by to say “hi” and to check out my post on DIY Paper & Tape Butterflies.
I will post a link to and a preview of my guest craft post when my post goes live.
Third, also a little later today I will be posting a new craft project–a DIY Butterfly Jar–which builds off of my guest post. Here is a preview:
This past weekend my family went to the Utah Foster Care Foundation’s 10th Annual Chalk Art Festival. During the two day festival artists create works of art on the sidewalk. The festival raises funds to benefit Utah’s foster families. Here are a couple of photos that I took of the sidewalk art at the festival:

Pretty cool huh? To continue on the chalk theme, today I’ll show you how I made a framed chalkboard using an inexpensive thrift store frame and paint.
Despite the fact that the first time Jaime and I made this it was the dead of winter, I think this cake makes a good summer dessert. It has a fairly short bake time as far as cakes go, its intense lemon flavor is refreshing, and it pairs well with fresh berries and ice cream.
