Here is our blog hop list for Mother's Day challenge #300!
We can't wait to see your projects!


I wanted to join in the fun so here is my Mother's Day project: 


I got this teacup from Design Space. Originally from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge (why don't I have this entire cartridge- it's amazing!), the teacup is cut from paper from Michael's, chosen because it reminds me (the colors anyway) of my mother and grandmother's beloved Johnson Brother's china. The roses are from one of my all-time favorite cartridges (I think I say that about all of them!), Flower Shoppe.  Of course, every elegant tea cup must be presented on a doily, and I went with a non-traditional navy blue cut from the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.


As part of the blog hop, I will be giving away this $15.00 Starbucks Gift Card so that the winner can enjoy a cup of tea with their favorite Mom!  Just add your comment below on or before Sunday, May 14.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, May 17. 

NOTE: THIS CONTEST HAS NOW CLOSED!

  3. Found the Subscribe at top right of your blog. Entered email address and then it had one of those words you have to enter to prove you are not a dummy. Well, not sure if I got it right or not.

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, …
