Our oldest isn't old enough for Cub Scouts, but Derrick is the Cub Master, so we still hear all about scouts and sometimes help participate in it. Derrick and I came up with these fun candy "trophies" to give to each scout during the Pinewood Derby. They each received one along with a certificate. They were so simple to make and would be great for birthday parties as well! I think the photos are pretty self explanatory, just a bit of hot glue and the candy was easily attached. ...

We don't have much planned for St. Patrick's Day decor because we don't really care about it! BUT...we like the fun little activities that come with the green day, and last year, before Aaron started preschool, we hosted a party for all of his little church friends at our house. It was a lot of fun, and Aaron was thrilled to have everyone over for a fun-filled "green" day! He made his own decorations... and helped me put together this fruit rainbow for a snack. Each child brought a ... Read More about St. Patrick’s Day Party for Kids!
Derrick is the Cub Master at our church and asked me to make a cake for the Blue & Gold Banquet. I used this photo as my guide and pretty much copied it. It was a great resource. Everything is edible except for the blue and white cub scout badge. It most definitely isn't perfect (the fondant and I had a little battle...it won), but I love how it turned out in the end, and think the boys will like it tomorrow night too! The "Get Your Brag On" Link Party is open until ... Read More about Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet Cake!
So I've joined the freezer paper stenciling throng. It is SO MUCH FUN! I started with this pile of shirts and when I finished, Aaron said that he wanted to make another one. I guess he wasn't happy that he only ended up with one cutom shirt. So we went through his dresser and found another shirt to customize. I know what I'll be giving out for bday gifts and baby showers! I can't wait to make some cute onesies! Right now my favorite cricut cartridge is the "Create a Critter" one that I ...

The ladies at church were putting a gift basket together for a friend who has been going through a rough time. I decided to make a "Girl's Survival Kit" too add and filled it with all of her favorite things! I bought this box at the hardware store and filled it up. I know she likes Take 5s, so I put some of those in there, along with more candy, gum, lip gloss, a notebook, nail polish, and some homemade earrings. I think it turned out cute! ...

I had a lot of fun putting this topiary together. I first saw the cupcake liner idea on here, and decided to make a topiary instead of a wreath. I found these cute liners at IKEA last year and forgot about them...until today! I know that everyone uses styrofoam balls, but I didn't have any. So I balled up some newspaper and secured it with packing tape. Perfect...and free! Then I began hot gluing the liners to the newspaper ball. Simple as that. The other ball will be used in ...
