    Whatever Easter may mean to you personally, I think we can agree that it's one of those photogenic holidays of the year. Consider the many pleasant themes: the glorious renewal of spring, family feasts, adorable animals, colorful eggs, delighted children, cherished spiritual traditions. Why, with all these Pinterest-worthy possibilities, Easter almost seems like the sort of holiday that's impossible to mess up.

    Notice I said almostHere's how to make Easter deeply uncomfortable for everyone in just 8 easy steps.

    It's almost Easter! The family will be expecting at least two things. The first? A visit from the Easter bunny bearing all manner of tasty treats in baskets full of fake green grass. The second? That at least one afternoon will be spent doing this, the most hallowed of all Easter decorating projects: Dyeing Easter eggs

    Sure, you can always buy one of the decorating kits from your local grocery or drug store. Those will come out just fine. But if you want to spice up your routine and do something new with the kids, you've come to the right place.

    I love the delicate look of the string Easter Eggs crafts I've been seeing on Pinterest and thought this week would be the perfect time to test them out! Whether you want to string together a garland for beautiful Easter decor or pop these string eggs in a bowl as a Springtime centerpiece, it could be the perfect touch in your home!

    I created a stiffener by mixing 3 tablespoons of corn starch, 1 1/2 cups of boiled water, and 1 tablespoon of flour.

    The Duchess of Cambridge may have her hands full with being a royal mum, public appearances, her charities, and preparing for the big royal tour Down Under next month, but that hasn't stopped her from pursuing a project that seems to be increasingly close to her heart: Interior design, of course! Specifically, the design -- and renovation! -- of the royal couple's 10-bedroom country home, Anmer Hall, which sits on the Norfolk property of the Queen's 20,000-acre country estate Sandringham.

    We tend to think royalty can just hire people to handle all the details of an undertaking like this for them, but Kate, whose eye for design was honed during her years studying art history, is a different story. She is reportedly now sourcing all the interior details herself -- and loving every second of it!

    Every spring I look forward to seeing an abundance of Peeps marshmallow treats popping up in our grocery store. All this time I thought they were only good for snacking on. Little did I know the idea of using the Easter treats as spring home decor has been spreading across Pinterest like wildfire!

    After viewing a plethora of different Peeps topiary centerpieces, I decided I needed to get in on that Easter craft action too!

    I wish leprechaun trap ideas on Pinterest had been available five years ago when my daughter came home from preschool with a homework assignment to create one for St. Patrick's Day. Leprechaun trap? I had no idea there was an actual leprechaun creating havoc in the world or that it needed to be captured.

    We did our best to put something together that could lure a leprechaun in, but it definitely wasn't super creative. I was happy to test the three most popular leprechaun trap ideas I've seen on Pinterest recently and my son was thrilled to play along!

    Decorating my house for Valentine's Day is something I always look forward to because it incorporates all of my favorite colors. I'm half tempted to leave the red, pink, and purple heart decor up all year long. If there's one think Pinterest is not short of right now, it's Valentine home decor ideas and I'm loving it! When I saw the button art heart canvases, I couldn't wait to give it a try.

    Since my kids happen to love canvas art, I happily turned this one over to them and was excited to see what they would create.

    I love any holiday that will give me an excuse to decorate my home in red, pink, and purple. When I saw the pom pom Valentine wreaths floating around Pinterest, I knew I just had to have one. I noticed some pom pom Valentine wreaths were adorned with large, puffy poms made from yarn, while others looked like the typical pom poms we use for most of our crafts. I wanted to find out if my Valentine wreath could look as festive as the Valentine wreaths I was seeing on Pinterest, and I wanted to know where I could get my hands on those giant yarn pom poms!

    Ever wonder what celebs are like in person? Whether or not they're civilized and treat everyone else like human beings, what they smell like, how they decorate their homes? Every so often an ordinary mortal comes in contact with one of these etherial beings. And if we're very lucky, they spill details. Recently, novelist Peter Mountford wrote about his experiences selling furniture to celebrities while working a day job at an LA store. 

    I know what you're thinking. You want to find out who bought what and which star is the biggest jerk, but there are all those words! Well, never fear. I've distilled this narrative into its most important nuggets of gossip -- like who bought a $5,000 mink throw just before divorcing her TV star husband. You're welcome.

    With six fewer shopping days in the Christmas season this year there's no doubt plenty of us will be taking it down to the wire. I know I will certainly be one of them.

    The not-so-great news is that the pickings will be slim.

    Most of the retailers that have been keeping marathon hours since Thanksgiving will be dark on the 25th.

    Still, that doesn't mean we're out of options. 

    Here are a few spots to score some last minute cheer.
