Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!! Hope you are all as excited as I am about Christmas!!  I don’t have all of my Christmas shopping done…but, I am SOOOOO close!  I love this time of year! I am the mom, who wishes for snow days and tries to bake or make something every single day. Even with baby at home…I am still doing all the making and baking.  But, I just haven’t had as much time to write about it.  I am sorry.  I have been posting my pictures periodically on Facebook or Instagram.  So be sure you are following me there! (Today there’s a BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW project on The Crafting Journals though. It goes live at 7am CST) Some of the things I’ve made recently:   Burlap & Lace Silverware Holders Mommy Sippy Wine Glasses   And, I...

Fall Sanitizer Treats

Posted by on Oct 30, 2013 in 3d, Crafting, Gift ideas, Party Ideas, Uncategorized | 2 comments

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week!  Today I wanted to show you a quick little gift I made for a couple of friends.  I also made them for the kids’ teachers & the kids!  They are so simple and quick to make- and such a sweet way to show someone you are thinking of them! I made these in a Fall theme, but you could make them for any occasion or holiday.  Also, I always pick up extra anti-bacterial pocket-bacs when I am at Bath & Body Works, so that I always have a few on hand for a quick gift.  They are always having deals on them, and you can even use those fun $10 off coupons on them! SCORE! The tutorial for this project is here.  Again…sooooo soooo simple.  Cardstock, paper cutter, scoring...

Autumn Wishes Mix

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  Hope you are having a lovely Fall! I wanted to share something that was a HUGE hit at our house this past weekend.  I even made enough to share with some friends, and they loved it too! I made this Crunch Peanut Butter Mix from Betty Crocker last Fall, but for some reason I am the only one who remembers it.  (Maybe, I didn’t share?)  Anyway, this time around I had my daughter help me- and everyone helped munch on it! It is truly addictive! I did change the recipe a little from good ol’ Betty, but not much. 8 cups Golden Grahams cereal – (the whole small box)  4 cups Cocoa Puffs cereal- (half the box)  4 cups thin pretzel sticks  2 cups Reese’s Pieces (the whole bag)  2 cups dry-roasted peanuts  24 oz white almond bark, chopped  1 cup...

Engagement Gift

Posted by on Oct 15, 2013 in Cameo, Crafting, Gift ideas, Uncategorized, Vinyl | 4 comments

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  This past weekend we attended an engagement party, which was coincidentally our first engagement party.  I wasn’t sure what the “rule,” was on gift giving- but, I didn’t want to show up empty-handed.  Which also meant that I would also want to ‘craft’ something for the gift as well. I decided to give small, thoughtful gifts that pertain to getting engaged and planning a wedding. I didn’t get a chance to take a good photo of the gift- but, snapped this quick photo on my iphone.  (Can you see my latte on the left?) The fun snakeskin basket came from Target, and the glass mugs I personalized with glass-etch vinyl.  This is a much quicker way to give a glass-etch look without using the glass etching cream.  They say “Bride” & “Groom”. I included...
