Carrot Fries and White Summer Dress – March Favorites!

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

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!

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!
