Spring Decor Class Dates Extended

Spring Decor Class Dates Extended

As always seems to happen at this time of year, we have gotten a little off with the class schedule, partly because of weather and health and partly just because.  So, I’m just now getting to share the Spring Decor project with you.

The good news, you can still make it!  I am extending the class dates, which will be listed below.Continue reading

Cool Treats Tag for Treats

Cool Treats Tag for Treats

My 12 year-old son has been baking up a storm lately!  Many of you know that he likes to bake, and now he’s experimenting and trying new things for his vendor event in April.  We’ve had lots of sweet treats around the house lately (It’s a good thing I don’t like cake!)

On Friday he decided to try a different way of making cake pops.  There were a lot of cake pops!  So, naturally, I figured they would be would make the perfect gift for our hostess at that Stampin’ Party yesterday.  Of course I had to use some Stampin’ Up! packaging for those goodies!Continue reading

Quick Handmade Cookie Packaging

Quick Handmade Cookie Packaging

Micah and I tried something new last Friday, decorating cookies with Royal icing.  What fun!  We needed to take a dessert for an event and we decided to get creative with it.

We had some cookies leftover after the event, so I decided to use those for an award I had promised to my Sunday School class.  So, in typical fashion, I decided on Sunday morning that they needed some handmade packaging (after all, they were to be taken home to be consumed).  So, I hurried to package them up.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the whole pile, and the one I did get a picture of doesn’t have the prettiest cookie . . . but you’ll get the idea.Continue reading

You’re So Sweet Valentine Treats

You’re So Sweet Valentine Treats

I think I’ve mentioned before that I like to keep a little stock of various bags and boxes that are ready to decorate.  That stash came in handy for me this weekend!

I had my sons make their valentines and was feeling all prepared for Sunday . . . when I suddenly realized I hadn’t done any valentines for my Sunday School class.  Yikes!  My husband and I team teach the 1st – 3rd grade class.  Oops!  I’m not sure where my brain was!

Anyway, here it was, about 8:20 on Sunday morning . . .

I’m so thankful for that drawer of bags and boxes  . . . and the good supply of gummies in the cupboard!Continue reading

Vertical Succulent Garden Project

Vertical Succulent Garden Project

I’m not typically one to purchase many of the kits, I tend to like making things for myself.  Recently my upline was looking for volunteers to make the Vertical Garden kit, however, and so I stepped up to the challenge.

I made a few changes, but nothing extreme.  I wanted to still use the base that was included with the kit, I just left out the flowers, and added some shading and aquarium stones to the project.Continue reading

Christmas Sparkle Treat Bags

Christmas Sparkle Treat Bags

Do you enjoy creating pretty, handmade packaging?  I love wrapping up goodies in handmade packaging and giving them away!  I probably enjoy that more than making cards.  Of course, like most of us, I run out of time and energy sometimes, but I do enjoy it!

Here is a fun bit of packaging we made at the Christmas Party.Continue reading

Snow Place Snowman Treats

Snow Place Snowman Treats

We had such a fun time at the StampThat Christmas Party last evening!  It was a smaller group than normal, but just as festive as always!

Unfortunately, I totally forgot to take any pictures this year, not one . . .  You’ll just have to take my word on it, unless attendees want to chime in with comments.

We didn’t blindfold anyone for stamping this year, but we still had a creative game where everyone chose a stamp set (no knowing why) and then were given card supplies and had to use their stamp set to create a card with the supplies given.  How fun to see the variety created!

Here is one of the projects I planned for the evening, a little Christmas treat.Continue reading
