Hi! It's been far too long! I hope your Summer is off to a fantastic start! Last Thursday, brought our last day of school and the official beginning of Summer. We flew off to beautiful, Summer, beginnings and are now enjoying sun and being reunited with family and friends.
Before leaving, we made a project that is currently getting a lot of use and was an incredibly easy and fun, first sewing project: Towel Beach Bags. This is a perfect first sewing project for young seamstresses. There are only 4 seams to sew.
It just doesn't feel right to keep these teeny flags from you! Here are Flag Cupcake Topper Printables for all!
We've had more than temporary flag tattoos (here) this past week and I thought you might be like us, with lots of reasons to use flag cupcake toppers. Make teeny flags and top muffins, cupcakes, sandwiches or something new with these. I'd love to see what you do.
Whether you're cheering with the world cup or have another occasion to for flags of the world, click below for your own flag templates!

Move over Rhubarb Crumble, there's a new Rhubarb treat in town!
Rhubarb means Spring in Sweden.
It's also really the only seasonal, local, "fruit" we have for baking this time of the year. It's traditionally popular. Its' color is beautiful and I love its' tang --- plus, we have it in abundance --- however, up until now, I've preferred using it exclusively as a crumble (or drink | here.).
Today, I couldn't wait to share our new discovery with you. We're all in love with these muffins and all prefer them topped in a different way. The recipe is simple, easy to tailor-to-taste and pretty. So, if you are like us and rhubarb season is in full roll, this a a great new treat for you to make or to bake with the kids.
It's time to bake cake --- in muffin form. Continue below for the recipe.

Today, I'm getting a little jump start on Summer with a "Kids Bake" series post: Cherry Chocolate Truffles Treats. These heathy treats taste so yummy that, up until the kids helped me make these, they all thought of these were 100% splurge! Honestly! They taste like chocolate truffles. You can tailor these to your own family taste buds by the toppings you choose to roll these in.

I'm on a mission to give all Superdads, everywhere in the world, a chance to rest their beautiful heads.
These personalised Superdad Pillow Cases are not only very easy to make but, are made with everyday supplies. If you were here yesterday and are joining us in making Superdad an Etched Grill Set, maybe you, too, would like to add these or choose between one of the two Superdad projects that you feels fits your personal Dad-hero.

I feel like I was given super natural skills to bring this to you ahead of schedule. The Super hero, "Dad," in our house has super hero skills that he shares with us while at the grill. I've heard rumours of many other such super heroes in our midst, too; which is why I'm so happy to share this project for the super hero in your life! Make Etched Gill Set this year for Father's Day.
Everyone in the family collaborated and made a piece to add to the set which made such a great mix. Since each one of us created our piece using the etching on wood, the eclectic mix worked perfectly together. We tried out a super fun new technique that doesn't involved paint. Just click below to learn how to make these, too...
Our amazing weather has called for picnics and I decided to pop in here to share a current favourite picnic item with you. Rhubarb Drink is a fantastic kid /(or adult) kitchen project. It's a beautiful alternative to lemonade.
One of the first times I remember seeing the pink hues of a rhubarb drink was on the cover of one of the very, first Martha Stewart magazine covers. I moved to Sweden shortly after this and landed in a
