Yesterday was APRIL FOOLS’ DAY…did I trick you??

Hahahaha……let me just get a little laughter out of the way.  Because I LOVE APRIL FOOLS’ day!!  I can’t help but throw in a little humor here on the blog every year on April 1st!  Haha.


Many of of you knew right away that I’d be posting something… you were ready for it.  (Dang you.  I need to somehow blast a flash out to everyone that erases the memory of these posts every year.) But others of you were still fooled and realized it at the end of the post.  I loved reading your comments and emails about that.  Totally cracked me!  Others of you probably clicked on my post yesterday (the Tissue Dispenser Necklace) and thought I had gone nuts.  And maybe deleted my site forever??? ;)




Anyway….I know the concept is something that everyone can relate to.  Because, hello, a runny nose is the worst!  But yeah, having my kids run around with an unwinding roll of toilet paper around their necks just for taking pictures — not a good idea!


Okay, okay…..thanks for letting me laugh!  And thanks for laughing with me.  I’ll be back to normal tomorrow.  Promise!


But in case you’re new around here and thought you were the only one I fooled yesterday, check out some of these posts from the past.  Plenty of others were fooled too.  And believe me, I had just as much fun reading comments and reactions to these posts too.



Last year I made these Pre-Stained Baby Clothes……..yep, that’s ketchup, mustard, and chocolate sauce on there.  Because if a baby is already going to make a mess, might as well turn it into art and stop worrying about wearing a bib.





In 2013, I made these Embellished Diapers……because then hey, no diaper covers are needed.  And your little one can just run around in her diaper!




In 2011, I made these Chocolate Covered Veggies…….haha!  I can still remember the look on my kids’ face when I told them to just try the chocolate covered broccoli.  But if you go back and read that post, they actually kind of liked it!!!  So funny.




And oh, the year I made Toilet Decorations.  Because who doesn’t need a little more fancy in their bathroom!!!  Ha…..I remember the comments flooding in about the sanitary issues of this project.  Good thing it wasn’t real! :) 





And then the very first year I pulled an April Fools’ prank…….the Embellished Easter Pots.  You know, because even your pots deserve a little more beauty at Easter dinner. Ha!  Since this was the first year, I think many were trying to be kind……but thought I was absolutely wack-o!  I mean, come on, FIRE HAZARD!!! ;)





Anyway, that’s all!  And you better believe, I’ll start planning now for next year! :)


Here are some of the family friendly April Fools’ Day pranks I pulled on my family last year.  SO many funny ideas!


This one was my favorite prank I pulled on the kids.  Haha!



And this prank was awesome to pull on my husband!



Okay, I’m done.  Thanks for letting me remember all those years of laughs!!


And enjoy your day!
