Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm Nicki, a mom to 2 little boys, the surviving wife of an Army Captain, a sometimes DIY-er, a decorator of all holidays, a crafter, and a pinner of many. Above all though, I'm a completley obsessive, over-achieving mom who needs to be in control of just about everything.

Magical Golden Stones and Rainbow Fruit Platter
A friend and I are hosting the St. Patrick's Day party at my son's preschool tomorrow and I'm so ridiculously excited. I love, love, love doing the school parties. What could be better than holiday themed crafts???
I made these "Magical Golen Stones" for all the kids' goodie bags. They were super easy to make...Just took some river rocks that I had at home and spray painted them with metallic gold spray paint. Sprayed one side, let it dry, then sprayed the other side. Once dried, I used a paint pen to draw on them. I would have liked to have sprayed them again with a clear coat to better seal the clover and writing on them, but I totally ran out of time. They turned out great though!
For the snack, I made this rainbow fruit platter with little pots of gold on the bottom. I gt the pots at Michaels and filled them with Rolos for the gold. For the fruit, in case you can't see it, I used strawberries, clementines, pineapples, kiwis, blueberries, and grapes. All have a good shelf life so you can easily make this the night before and not have to worry about anything browning overnight.
