Five Favorite Finds Friday {And A Fun Tip}

When I made the popsicles yesterday, I had a little too much smoothie mixture but wanted to freeze the rest of it. I decided to try freezing them in ice cube trays but didn't have any popsicle sticks. I decided to try using straws instead and they worked great! Here's how to make your own:

Cut your straws into thirds. If you're freezing something that's not as thick as a smoothie, you may want to put plastic wrap or foil on the trays before placing the straws in the liquid. That's it!

Now, here are my five favorite finds for this Friday.

Slow Cooker Apple Crumble from Inspired By Family Magazine

Transportation ABCs {Free Printable} from Nap Time Creations

Inexpensive DIY Pencil Vase from i should be mopping the floor

English Toffee from The Idea Room

I came across this fun saying on Pinterest. 

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.

  2. Great idea for the straws in the frozen treats! I always have straws around the house but not Popsicle sticks. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday this week. I can't wait to see what you link up next week. Have a wonderful weekend.
