Mini Cards

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  I’ve missed a few days here– I took a little girls trip to Vegas & then we have been battling a yucky cold around here.  I am still a little hoarse, but on the mend! It seems like everyone is getting a cold right about now, so something must be going around for sure! We had a lot of fun in Vegas, but I was glad to get home!   Here is a picture of my friend, Sarah and I before going to see Jersey Boys. (Remember me talking about Sarah–she had a baby the same week I did and we crafted this pretty mobile for her little girl) Anyway, Jersey Boys was amazing!  Definitely see it if you have the opportunity.  We had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi which was so delicious, a...

Fall Sanitizer Treats

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

Posted by on Oct 27, 2013 in Gift ideas, Party Ideas, Sweet, Treats, Tutorials, Uncategorized | 3 comments

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...

Fall Decor for Teachers

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Cameo, Crafting, Gift ideas, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I wanted to make the kids’ teachers a fun Fall decor piece for their doors.  I had thought about it a little, and then I came across these festive garland pumpkins at the Dollar Spot in Target.  I knew I’d just have to add the teacher’s name to make a quick gift. So, I enlisted the help of the kids to pick out card stock and glue letters on.  Then they got to see how my laminating machine worked!  Of course then they were flooded with ideas for bookmarks and other projects that they could make with the laminating machine! The kids picked black and orange card stock, and we wound up cutting the names out at about 12 inches long.  After they used the Xyron sticker machine to adhere the letters to the shadow, we put them thru...
