Carrot Fries and White Summer Dress – March Favorites!

**Some links may be affiliate links, but these really are my favorites.

teatimecreative march favorites

Some of my most favorite things this March:

  1. Baked carrot fries with a sriracha sauce. The super simple recipe can be found here at Craftsy. They’re delicious!
  2. White Summer Dress by Taylor John Williams. i’m sort of a drag but my nature is kind
  3. English Tea Shop’s Happy Me tea.
  4. Prismacolor Col-Erase colored pencils. My recent go-to for sketching. They erase very cleanly and the lines you leave add a softer edge to your illustrations than a regular graphite pencil or ink.
  5. Art Snacks! In my opinion, this art supply subscription box gives you the best value of the many out there to choose from. The March box included professional-quality watercolors.

Illustrated with Copic markers.

What have been your favorite things this month?

chocolate pudding filled strawberries

Chocolate Pudding Filled Strawberries

We’ve all had pudding in a cup and maybe even in pudding pie, but what else can we put pudding in? Strawberries, of course!

These chocolate pudding filled strawberries are so simple to prepare and only require three ingredients. You’ll need strawberries, a box of pudding mix, and whatever amount of milk your pudding mix calls for (usually 2 cups).

First, slice off the leafy top and a small part of the bottom of each strawberry, just enough to allow the strawberries to stand upright on their own.

Next, scoop out the center of the strawberries. Take care to not cut through the sides or bottom of the berry. I used a curved grapefruit knife, which made the task fairly easy.

Then, prepare the pudding. Have your plate of berries ready and nearby because once the pudding comes to a boil and is ready, you’ll need to fill the strawberries quickly, before the pudding firms up right there in the pot. I used a regular teaspoon to scoop the pudding into the berries, which worked really well and kept any mess to a minimum.

And you’re done! Let them firm up in the refrigerator and serve as is or put a bit of whipped cream on top. Enjoy!

cactus treat holder, free printable treat holder

DIY Sweet Cactus Treat Holder – Free Printable

I created this little printable treat holder a while ago to offer in my Etsy shop, but decided to offer it here for free instead. The original was hand painted in watercolors by me.

It’s a sweet little cactus and you can fold its arms to hold some kind of small treat. I put needle felted hearts in mine, but you could also use it for a fun size chocolate or other candy. Or for a child’s party favor, you could put something useful in them, like a couple crayons or colored pencils.

You can download the free printable treat holder below and then follow these simple steps:


1.
Print as many treat holders as you need. (There are two cacti on one page.) A heavy printer paper would work well. You could also use standard printer paper or a cardstock. How sturdy the paper needs to be will depend on what kind of treat you use.

2. Cut them out and draw on eyes and a mouth if you’d like.

3. Carefully tape the back of your treats to the cactus. You could use double-sided tape or fold regular tape backward over itself in a flat loop.

4. Fold the arms over the treats so the cactus is “holding” it and secure with a little tape. You could even go an extra step and write To: and From: on the arms.

And that’s it! Easy, cute treat holders! Let me know in the comments if you liked this. I’d love to hear how you used them and what kind of creative ideas you came up with!

Crafty Stocking Stuffers and Gifts For Artists and Crafters


*This post contains affiliate links.

I’m a big fan of giving gifts that are useful and won’t just sit untouched on a shelf for years. However, finding items that the receiver can make use of isn’t always easy. It’s a bit less daunting if you know what their hobbies and interests are, but if you aren’t into it yourself, you may have no clue what supplies or tools they’d love to receive. So for those of you who have a creative person in your life and need ideas for gifts or crafty stocking stuffers this holiday season, I’ve put together a gift idea guide of useful supplies for a wide range of crafters and artists.

General Crafting Supplies


Strathmore Newsprint Paper Pad

This is a handy multi-purpose supply. It can be used for sketching and drawing, but is also a useful work surface for any crafter. At 18 by 24 inches, it covers a nice large area, keeping the crafting surface clean and protected from paints, markers, stamping ink, glitter, etc.


Heidi Swapp Silicone Craft Mat

Suitable for many different crafts, silicone mats are durable and super easy to clean.

Mod Podge Starter Pack

Mod Podge is so versatile and this pack includes 5 different kinds in sample sizes to try out. This is one of those crafty stocking stuffers that works for anyone creative.

Fiskars Desktop Scissors Sharpener

If you know anyone that uses scissors a lot, whether they work with fabrics, scrapbooking, card-making, this is such a handy tool to have.

 

Painting Supplies

 

Liquitex BASICS Acrylic Paint-It! Kit

Know anyone that enjoys painting parties, but doesn’t own paint supplies of their own? I highly recommend these. They’re great student quality paints and this set in particular comes with everything a person would need to begin painting at home.

Golden A-Z Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Starter Set

This is a great gift for someone who may already have student quality paints and would like to upgrade. The set provides a nice introduction to a range of professional artist quality products.

Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors

This pocket box set of watercolors is a really nice student quality set of 12 colors of paint, a water brush, and the palette. It’s also a great size for anyone who travels with their art supplies.

Drawing Supplies

 

Faber Castell Drawing Pencils

Drawing pencils are not only a practical gift for any artist, but also perfect for pretty much any age. For children, it’s a great, inexpensive way to get them into art. This one is a pack of 12 in a variety of sizes in a nice tin case.

Strathmore ‘Series 400’ Sketch Pads 

These are useful for drawing practice and also sketching out painting compositions. Works well with graphite, colored pencils, and charcoal.

 

Knitting and Crochet Supplies


Lion Brand Yarn Bonbons

Knitters and crocheters can never have enough yarn. These packs contain 8 mini skeins of yarn, enough for small projects and appliques.

Lion Brand Speed Stix Knitting Needles

Cozy, chunky knits have been gaining more and more popularity. Speed Stix are a nice alternative to the arm knitting trend. These are easy to use and knit up projects so quickly!

Crochet Hook Set

This is a fantastic gift set for crocheters, both new and seasoned. It comes with 9 different comfort-grip crochet hooks and plenty of accessories, all in a cute storage/travel case. Compared to aluminum and hard plastic crochet hooks, the ergonomic comfort-grip handles help prevent hand pain.

I hope you’ve found this helpful. If you have any other ideas for crafty stocking stuffers and gifts for crafters and artists, be sure to leave a comment!
