Happy Anniversary (Again!)

Today I am linking up with the "Use this Sketch" Challenge on the  Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.     

            


The goal is to design a project guided by a particular sketch (below) and using at least one item made with a Cricut.  This is the prototype for my parents' anniversary card.  I made the flowers using my new "Flower Shoppe" cartridge.  The stamp is one that I have had for years, probably purchased from Michael's.  (I realized recently that I have several cake stamps.) The "Happy Anniversary" stamp is from a set I also bought at Michael's several years ago.  Of course, there are also gold rhinestones on the cake and on the frame.

While I am on the topic of Anniversary cards, here is the one I am making for my husband. Our 28th(!) anniversary is next week. The card is a work in progress. I used the "Everyday Fonts" for the numbers and "Cricut Essentials" cartridges for the little heart. 


Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  



A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  



This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  



I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 


They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …
