mer_mag This little munchkin tried to sneak away with all the jelly beans in this giant carrot diy by Brittany @houselarsbuilt which will later be followed by a another cute somth'n from Anne @flaxandtwine. Loved hanging out with these ladies and talking life and biz over panini's and jelly beans. 7h

mer_mag More playful Eater basket fillers ideas. I gravitate to things that are hand made, encourage creativity or are vintage (I'm sort of on a crazy vintage kick with this new house...slight obsession actually 😬). #mermageaster #playfultoysandcrafts #playfulpaperpuppets 1d
  •   mer_mag Fun! @allisonwaken where are you going? We're surprising the kids with Disneyland tickets in their Easter baskets as the next week is their Spring break. So travel gadgets is on the brain here too. 1d
  •   allisonwaken @mer_mag Carlsbad/beach in a few weeks and DisneyWorld/Universal in May! So excited! 1d
  •   mer_mag Thanks @littlelordlenny. I didn't realize his very existence could be offensive as I have a diff positive response to him. I'll have to do some research on that. Thanks so much for your thoughts. This could be a great cultural/learning lesson for the kids as well. 1d
  •   mer_mag Oh my! @allisonwaken so much fun in store!! 1d
  •   littlelordlenny Again, thanks for your willingness to consider this issue @mer_mag . I think one problem is that this doll (and depictions like this) reflects a European/colonial perspective of natives, and one that recalls a time of racism and oppression. 1d
  •   chelseabjames Those paper animals have my heart. Totally making them 22h

mer_mag I had termed it a bandit bunny mask but he quickly informed me that he's a "ninja bunny". #obviously #stringbeanlikehisdad #mermageaster #mermagpapercrafts #thebanisterhouse 2d

mer_mag Badit mask + bunny ears = my solution to get my boys to still wear bunny ears for Easter. (Works like a charm). More pics on mermagblog.com. Download and full diy on @minted julep blog today. #mermageaster #mermag #mermagpapercrafts 2d

mer_mag Put together some Playful Easter basket filler ideas earlier today for a post next week. All three of my kids came in at different times to nab candy and to ask hyper excited questions about what they saw. I think this might be the year they stop believing in the Easter Bunny as they've pretty much seen what's going in their baskets. 😬 oops. #playfultoysandcrafts #mermageaster #nothatsnotmickeymouse #playfulwoodendollfacenecklace 5d

mer_mag Every now and again I play barber shop and pretend like I can cut and style hair. Had so much fun this week playing make up and hair do with the likes of talented ladies @chauntevaughn @metacoleman_ & @sarahjanestudios #wontquitmydayjob (this photo is actually from something else a year ago. Can't get his hair to do that anymore ) 7d

mer_mag To get my boys more interested in doing their homework I put a set or freshly sharpened pencils into one of our funny face pencil holders from my book Playful. It totally works. (Theses funny friends are also great for storing your sets of colored pencils!) #playfultoysandcrafts 2w
