Etsy find--grocery bags

I am on the hunt for reusable grocery bags that are not only functional, but cute as well. I am not interested in carrying a bag around that has a stores name plastered all over it. I came across this pattern on etsy that looks promising and easy. Any sewers out there want to try it out? I think I would use a sturdier fabric and one that could be cleaned with a wipe.

How to--Fruit popsicles

This summer my girls are really into popsicles. Who can blame them? They are delicious. Only problem is all the sugar. My oldest always wants to eat more than one as if they were her meal. Right now we are loving the float kind with ice cream in the middle. Rootbeer, cream soda, orange...delicious.

So my solution to all the sugar...homemade fruit pops. Growing up we would always freeze juice in an ice cube trays with toothpicks as the stick, but now there are some really fun molds available. Ikea probably has the cheapest but if you want some other fun shapes check out these:
Seriously...This shape is so cool. I want to eat one right now. Made by Orka.
A more traditional shape, but still has a little funk with the grooves. Made by Tovolo

Every kids favorite, the rocket pop by Tovolo.

Now for the recipe. I came across this Strawberry recipe on Bakerella and figured it would be a great place to start. If the Cake Pop Queen likes it, then I am sure to as well. I am drawn to the recipe because the sugar is minimal and strawberries are so delicious. Plus, the kids will be eating fruit while getting their popsicle fix.

2 cups strawberries
1 Tb sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

Hull the strawberries and toss all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pour into molds and freeze.

Good luck making your own popsicles and don't forget to share any recipes or pictures you have.

Ice Cream Soda

I am a sucker for everything party. At times I think I should have been a party planner because I get giddy with excitement thinking about parties. My daughter and I have even planned her birthday October. So when I came across this adorable idea for ice cream soda I had to share it with everyone. Amy Moss created some fantastic labels for soda bottles so guests can make their own ice cream floats. Check out her site for the DIY how to.
