I’ve wanted to make cascarones for a few years now. They look so fun and I know my kids would more than enjoy cracking them on each other! Next year, I might get brave and fill them with glitter, but this time around they are stuffed with confetti. Today, I’m sharing how to make these Easter inspired carrot cascarones on I heart naptime. Hop on over for the full tutorial!
A couple of months ago, I started taking pictures of random things left out or behind around my house. Everything from toys, pieces of paper, games, drawings, art supplies, clothes, shoes, fabric, books, and more. Initially, it was just a way for me to improve and practice my photography skills with a non moving subject. But, then I started to find so much meaning in these everyday items. They kind of told a story. So, I kept taking pictures. It sort of became my way of documenting our footprints. Something besides ourselves, to show we were here. They were here. I was here.
Jacks loves to set up these elaborate “toy scenes”, as I like to call them. For him, all the fun is in the building and designing. After about 30 minutes or so, he usually gets bored and walks away. This is what he left behind that day. Jacks was here.
I love pictures of everyday life. There are so many details that get lost in the set up shots. I want to remember all those little things, like how she ate a bowl of cereal like it was the best bowl of cereal ever. I remember she was especially cranky that day. It was lunchtime and nothing I offered appeased her. Exasperated and down to only a few options, I cautiously asked, cereal? Only just the day before, she hated cereal. She reluctantly agreed. I felt victorious!
