Fool's Food! Egg Waffles and Waffle Balls!

Egg Waffles and Waffle Balls!
I am all about Tasty April Fool's day pranks!
The harmless and yummy kind!

This one is just silly...because the eggs are shaped like
waffles and the waffles are shaped like eggs!
Kids (and husbands) love that stuff!

Make some pancakes in a cake pop maker like this.

(my daughter got this for Christmas (zulily) and we love it!  Perfect for pancakes!)
 Then scramble up some eggs and use your waffle maker!

 Mine was equivalent to 4 eggs to fill 1 waffle.
Fill to the top of the squares and close the lid.

 It will puff up and look just like a waffle!

 Serve with syrup and a little powdered sugar!
Super fun...totally harmless April Fool's Day breakfast!

LDS General Conference Bingo Card Printables!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
General Conference Bingo Cards!
 If you are LDS or know about the Mormons...
You'll know there is a World wide broadcast twice a year.
Called General Conference.
It's held for 4 sets of 2 hour sessions...2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday 
(with a priesthood session on Saturday night as well)
It will be held April 5th and 6th 2014
We watch it live streamed online...LDS.org

We love Conference and are commonly doing crafts while we listen.
My kids enjoy doing Conference Bingo...so I made up 8 varieties.
Print them off...laminate them if you want!
 Give each child one...and some candy, buttons, 
or some other kind of place-marker.
Then as the speakers say the key words the kids can mark them off!
My kids love to go for black out! 

 Free printables, right click to save off...8 varieties!
Personal use only please.

 And these last 2...if you want them 4 on a page!
Great for Conference packets or to pass out in Primary!

My Little Pony Maud Pie Graphic Tee!

 If you are keeping up with My Little Pony season 4...
You've met Maud Pie.

It tastes like apples.

She is Pinkie Pie's older sister and doesn't show her emotions the same way as Pinkie.
(We loved this episode so much, I made my husband watch it...he liked it too!)
I knew I must make a Maud Pie graphic Tee!
I took this picture.
And tweaked it in photoshop to make it a black and white outline.
Then I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out freezer paper.
Freezer paper is easy to use.
You can cut it with an x-acto knife...but I love using the silhouette.
So, settings on the Silhouette Machine.
Place the freezer paper shiny side down on the mat.
Blade set at 6.  Software settings at: speed 1, and depth: 25.
I always cut freezer paper slow.  Super slow.
The paper can snag so it's best to let it work slowly.

Here you can see some of the letters snagged...no worries.
 I used an x-acto knife and cut the lines anywhere the silhouette wasn't able to cut it completely.
The wrinkled freezer paper will iron out flat.
 Peel out all the parts you intend to paint in black.
Like the coloring book outline...
 Like this.
Remove black lines...iron onto shirt...including all the small
pieces that fit inside letters...until it is all transferred and ironed on the shirt.
Okay, now it's time to paint!
I mixed part black acrylic with fabric medium...
 Use a stipple brush to paint over all the lines left by the freezer paper.
 Until it's all painted.
 Peel off the freezer paper while the paint is still slightly wet.
 Now carefully peel out all the little pieces.
 I used my Silhouette hook tool to get the little pieces between letters.
 Until it's all weeded out.
Let it dry completely.
Now for adding colors.  I used the fabric medium with all the paint,
 so the paint isn't stiff when it dries.
 Now I added in some color!
Started with gray to fill her skin.
 "Gray.  You are gray.  Like a rock."
 Then some teal for the eyes.
 Added lavender for the bangs, eyelids and mane.
White on the eyes, blue for the shirt.
She's done!  Just let her dry.
Super Cute, right?

Gotta love Maud!
"Pinkie Pie, what were you thinking?"

 "I don't really like candy.  But I do love Pinkie Pie."

And maude is a color too!
