Product Review: Plastic Brick Edging from CSN Stores

I have been putting off this product review from CSN Stores for quite some time now! It took me a while to find the perfect product to review.  We have lived in our house for five years and the previous homeowner did a great job putting in a beautiful flower bed across the front of the house, but I was not a big fan of the green plastic edging she used.  I have been on the hunt for something to replace it for the past couple of years.  I came across the Plastic Brick Edging with Solar Lights while browsing CSN and decided to give it a shot.  Here are a few photos of the garden before:
And some after shots with the new edging and new mulch:
I love the look at night, even though it is hard to tell from these photos.  Each 40’ set comes with six solar bricks and I used two sets.
I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised with the overall finished look.  I was worried that you would be able to tell that the bricks are plastic and that they would look “cheap” but I really don’t feel that way now.  They went together easily and the only tools needed were a spade (to level out the ground) and a mallet (to tamp them down into the ground).  The lights have worked without fail every night.
There are so many options for edging/borders out there, and with the length of flower bed I had to cover everything else I looked at was just going to be too expensive.  At $60 per set, the price was much more reasonable. One more look…..
I highly recommend CSN Stores, they have everything from outdoor furniture to shoes and clothing!  The shipping was relatively quick and the customer service was excellent.  Check them out next time you are surfing the web!

Wearable Chocolate Easter Bunnies

My friend made some adorable Chocolate Easter Bunny t-shirts with her twins and I just had to share.  I love crafts that involve the kids and this one was just perfect. How cute are these?!


Start with a solid color cotton t-shirt.


Use a fabric marker,water-soluble pen, or a piece of chalk to trace an outline of a chocolate bunny minus the ears.


Paint the bottom of your child’s feet with fabric paint and have them stamp them at the top of the bunny’s head.  Be sure and place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so the paint doesn’t bleed through.


Paint the rest of the bunny and his tail.  Add a bow at the head for girls or one at the neck for boys.  The bunny on the girl’s shirt here is wearing a tutu to match!


I hope the Easter bunny fills your basket with lots of chocolate, have a great weekend!

Happy Easter!

Hippity Hoppity, Easter’s on Its Way!

Another fun in-the-hoop project on my embroidery machine.  These little Peeps Bunnies are ready to hop right into your Easter basket!


I couldn’t resist making these for all the little girls in my life, and now they are for sale in my Etsy shop and through my Facebook page.


Made of super-soft minky dot fabric and personalized just for you, they are the perfect addition to any Easter basket!


I’ll be away from the computer and embroidery machine for a couple days, and any orders placed through the rest of the week will ship Monday or Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
