July is Ice Cream Month!

This past week I was fortunate enough to be able to escape the heat (and more importantly, the humidity!) and spend a little time in my craft room. And when I found out that the subject of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week is "National Ice Cream Month", I knew that I just had to create something with a big melty ice cream cone on it.  



This is just a simple little card to say "Hi!" to a friend this summer.  


I couldn't decide if the cherry needed a little extra bling.  Who am I kidding- the answer to that question is always "yes! of course you need to add more bling!". 


And a little extra note card for good measure. Both cards were created using the "Doodlecharms" cartridge which is one of my favorites.  

I'll be joining up with the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog.  Click here to check out the creations of some very talented crafters.  

Hmmm, I think I need to add "Buy Ice Cream" to my errands list today.....

Thanks for stopping by!

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, …
