So can I! Inside these adorable boxes are some special gifts for special friends. I'll share what's inside in Friday's post. You'll have to check back to see the goodies. And believe me, it will be worth coming back for. We used to sell these Take Out Boxes a couple years ago and I stocked up. They fit small gifts so well and you don't need any adhesive to assemble them. To jazz up these boxes, I just wrapped some of our pattern … [Read more...] about Can you keep a secret?
At our Downline Meeting last Thursday, we made treats for the local Ronald McDonald House. I love that we do this regularly for them. This is a simple way we can support them using our talents. Our treat holders are usually different every month. Poli does the design of the projects and we all get together to make them. She found the idea for these adorable boxes on Pinterest and they were really easy to put together. The reindeer is from the … [Read more...] about Treat Time

You definitely need to make an adorable tag for it. This tag is made … [Read more...] about Day 3-Display Stamper Blog Hop

I used the Merry … [Read more...] about No Peeking!
This past Saturday, the kids and I returned from a quick trip to Paris. Yes, Paris France. For years I've been wanting to take them to Europe and it never quite worked out between the timing and the cost. And I honestly thought we weren't even going to have time to take a vacation at all this Summer between all of their activities. But we realized roughly three weeks ago that Soccer camp was ending about a week earlier than I originally … [Read more...] about Bonjour!
So many decisions! Now that the Holiday Catalog is out, I just can't make up my mind. Do I work on Halloween goodies? Or Christmas Goodies? Well, lucky you, because I have one of each today and both are candy bar wrappers. So a few nights ago, I decide I'm going to make up several of these to get ready for today's post. I send the kids to the store with $15 cash. I asked them to get me one regular size Hershey bar and the two notebooks they … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers
