Super Simple Shamrock Wreath

This year it seems like many stores skipped St. Patrick's Day and moved right into Easter. Since it always makes me happy to see Cadbury Egg Season, this is usually not a problem, but my St. Patrick's Day decor needed some refreshing.  Of course, I had to hit the craft room to create my own.  

Fortunately the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog theme this week is 

Challenge #296-St. Patricks Day
Make a project about St. Patricks Day, such as Shamrocks or Leprechauns

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I used my Cricut "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartridge to make two sizes of shamrocks out of three shades of green paper.  I added score lines to the shamrocks for texture.  I topped it off with some glittery gold shamrocks (of course- any luck leprechaun would have shamrocks with a little bling!). 

Stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog this week to see more creative St. Patrick's projects! 

Thanks for stopping by Gardenias and Glitter 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, …
