Monday Dinner: Baked Ham, Sauteed Green Beans



April's Nature Box Subscription

In case you haven't heard of Nature Box, for $19.95, you receive 5 different full sized healthy snacks each month. (free shipping) You can pause or cancel your deliveries at any time!

I would highly recommend looking at Nature Box Facebook, Twitter or a blogger post for discount codes! I was able to save 50% through a Facebook ad.

We've returned to the option of Nature Box picking our snacks after trying the customized box. It's just more fun to try new selections.

April's box theme was Spring Break! I thought that was an appropriate title with many kids being on vacation.



This month's snack box contained Raspberry Almond Bites, PB & J Granola, South Pacific Plantains, Poppy Seed Sticks and Apple Pie Oat Clusters!



The South Pacific Plantains were an immediate favorite! I'm glad I was able to get a few before our son discovered them! He said they reminded him a handmade potato chip. not too salty, just right!



My husband fell for the Poppy Seed Sticks while I really like the Apple Pie Oat Clusters!

Another delicious assortment from Nature Box!

Oh boy! Did you see 'Call The Midwife' last night? If not, don't worry, I won't be providing any spoiler details. But, can we all agree that we didn't see that coming?!

Thank goodness for PBS! Sunday night TV is something to look forward to with 'Call The Midwife', 'Mr. Selfridge', and 'The Bletchley Circle'!

More Spring Crafting Around The House!

Why buy an Easter banner when you can make one? I took Easter theme tags and some kitchen twine to make this banner!

And to repurpose an old mirror I took a wreath, tied ivory ribbon to it and hung it up on the wall!

What I love about these projects are that I just used things around the house.



Did you do spring decorating, using items around the house?

Happy Easter From BerryMorins Bits And Tips!



Happy Easter from our family to yours!

Window Shopping For Curtains At Target

While stopping by Target, I thought I would check out their curtain selection. We're putting curtains, in our living space this year.

Can we just say, Wow! What a selection! Here's just a few curtains that really impressed me!

My Gratitude Box Inspired by Proverbs 31

This week, Proverbs 31 shared How To Make A Scripture Personalized Box. I felt inspired, to create my own interpretation. I chose to fill my box with quotes, bible verses and moments of joy!

So, armed with a visual, I immediately pulled out my crafts supplies and got to work. Here's what I came up with!


The box is from Black Girl Beauty subscription, while I used 2 pieces of scrapbook paper and a printed sticker, from my crafts stash.

I like to save decorative ribbons, as well as, purchasing them from Big Lots. The brown tissue paper is also from Black Girl Beauty subscription box!

Even the paper I used is discounted heavy-weight craft paper, that I purchased years ago, from Michael's, on sale. I just cut the paper down to size, with my paper cutter.

I Needed A New Desk File Box So...



I love the new Nature Box color so much that I decided to not cover it up with decorative paper. It's just too pretty!

It works great for holding extra file folders, new receipts, and paperwork, that I'm currently dealing with. And looks great on my desk!
