Thank you cards...

I made these sets of Thank You cards for another gift for our Enrichment Gift Exchange. Thought it was a good time of year to have thank you notes around! I just love my cricut for quick cards like these!

This last one was once again inspired by Sketches!
I'm really loving the inspiration from her website!

Christmas in the air...

Here are a few Christmas projects i've been working on. No wonder I'm not getting any scrapbooking done. I just made the board a few days ago, I have had the stockings done previously!
This is for our Relief Society Enrichement Party and the 'homemade' gift exchange we are doing with it.

My mom and I made this over Thanksgiving break! I love it and the kids love the lights!

Hair bows

I went to a few craft fairs over the last week and bows were everywhere. I've been wanting to make some for Jenna, but since we don't have too much hair still, we have to do smaller bows. I got lots of great ideas for bows. I came home right after one of the fairs and made some up right then. I think they turned out cute!!

Peep Jar Instructions

Ingredients in the Jar:
--Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers (approx 1 1/3 c.)to crumbs and layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 qt. jar.
--Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps "or whatever peeps are good for the season"standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar pressing them against the glass, but don’t squash them.
--Carefully, spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
--On top of this pour 1 ½ c. Easter M&M’s "or the current holiday"
--Decorate the lid of the jar however you please…tie curly ribbons around the neck of the jar.

Directions: (this is what you give with the jar) Empty the jar contents into a bowl and add 1/3 C brown sugar. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture and mix well. Melt ½ c. butter, add 1 t. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
*Option: leave the bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed

More pages..i'm on a roll!!

It has been so much fun to get these pictures on paper. I don't do super fancy ones, but I think they are cute and my kids already love looking at them. I don't have time to go ALL out on my pages, but they are in a book and off my endless CDs of pictures. I have no hope in catching up, but at least I can try to stay on top of it :).

The first set of pages is from Anthony's first hair cut. I can't believe how much hair he had. I'm glad I kept it all of these years. I can't figure out what the best way to take pictures of my pages is, so bear with me until I find the right way to take them.

This one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I got the inspiration from ... Sketches! by Tamara. She has lots of great things on her blog!

Recent pages

Here are my latest scrapbook pages. I LOVE Close to my Heart! They make it so easy to sit down and put a bunch of pages together. I don't think they are anything too fancy, but enough to get the job done and say they look cute! I hope my kids will love them someday!

I'm back...I hope!!

Okay, my creative genes took a vacation and got put on the back burner when canning season took over. A couple of weeks ago I went to my mom's so Jake could study for a HUGE test. We made this cute little witch for my trick-or-treating basket! I LOVE IT!!!
These are the stockings that I've made for each of my little family and a few others. Thanks Janelle for the 'pattern'. The first one is for Jenna and the second one is for my new little nephew Stanley. I think they turned out rather cute!

These are a few treats I took out to my visiting teaching ladies. I saw the idea during Easter and filed it away in my brain. I was lucky enough to remember it again at Halloween time! I think they turned out cute. You give them instructions to add brown sugar, butter and vanilla and cook them. They turn out like smore bars! YUMMY~!

Spring craft...

I think I cursed myself by making this on Tuesday as we got snow (and a lot of it) last night. Oh well, hopefully spring will still come and until then, I can enjoy my springy sign :)!

More pages...

So this week i didn't quite get 7 pages done, but I did get 5. The other time was spent getting my house back in order from kids being sick. These are two of my favorite from this week.

I love scrapbooking. It brings back all the fun memories of when Anthony was little! Time goes by too fast.

My goal for scrapbooking...

I made a goal to get more scrapbooking done and yahoo for me..i've stuck to it so far. Here are a few of my favorite pages. I am now almost 'caught' up to 2007 and can't wait to start that year! I have enjoyed getting out the pictures of Anthony and seeing how he and Jenna are a lot alike. It has brought back many happy memories of him as a baby.

The cheeseball page has a cute little story... Anthony came in and wanted to see what I was doing when I was scraping that page. He looked at the pictures and said..."Nene is a cheeseball." I was already going to use that title on that page, so it stuck. That was one of his first words that really made sense....cheeseball!! He still is our little cheeseball!
I am amazed at how many memories are lost if it weren't for the pictures.

Anniversary Cards

I have a few anniversaries coming up that I needed cards for, so here they are. If you get them, sorry you had a sneak peek at them :)...I hope you like them!!

I went to a scrapbook 'sale' here in town that had tons of things quite cheap. It was fun to get more coordinating things that weren't CTMH. I am all about ease in my scrapbooking and card making so if the papers already makes my life easier and my scrapbooking quicker!

I also got a new alphabet set from CTMH and wanted to use it! It is called giggle and I love it. It is quite different than any of the others that I have. I love CTMH stamps!

Family Reunion scrapbooking

Here are some more examples of what I can help you do for your family pictures. I sure enjoy these bright colors and getting my scrapbook caught up with one more activity done!

Alphabet Fun!

Wow--it has been too long since I have gotten to sit and create more crafts. These letters are available in any variety of the alpahabet. They can be custom colored to match your decorations in various rooms or can be combined together to spell something out.

A is for Anthony

J is for Jenna

Scrapbook pages...completed

Here are the last of my baby girls hospital pictures. They were so much fun and went together so fast. I'm so happy they are done and she is only six months old :).


These clocks are so fun and add personality to every room! I can do any color you want on the front of the clock.

Scrapbook pages

Here are some of my baby girl I'm working on right now. I use the same paper throughout these pages so they have the same 'theme' to them. These are some of her hospital pictures with more to come.
