Final Creation

I finally finished a project that was started a while ago. Check out the beginning of my project here and this is what it turned out to be. The flowers started off at the Dollar Tree, it was a little girl's cheerleading outfit.

The bag is from Michaels or AC Moore or Joann Fabrics (can't remember!) clearance section. Don't remember how much I paid for it, but I'm sure it wasn't much. I love the clearance section. It was a pack of 3 bags, one with green handles, one with pink handles and one with blue handles. They measure about 10 by 14 inches.

Taaa Daaaa!!!!! The final product.

Not sure if I LOVE it, but it is kinda cute. I thought the green bag handles would match the green flowers (yes, there are green and blue flowers!) but can't really tell which is which.

This will work for shopping anyway.

Thanks for looking.

VERY Early Christmas Ornament Idea

Sorry that I keep sharing everyone else's ideas, but I can't help it!!! They are so darn cute! I love this idea for a Christmas ornament. How stinkin' cute is this idea?!?!?

It seems very easy to make too. Check out the easy step by step directions here, Muffin Tin Mom. Thanks to Michelle for sharing this awesome idea.

My idea is to make a bunch of these ornaments, but mail them out FLAT. In the Christmas card send directions on how to make them and add to a Christmas tree! I'll keep you updated on that idea!
Thanks for looking.

Another YUMMY Valentine Snack

Saw this idea and my mouth watered!! Thanks to Kim at It's a Crafty Life for sharing this idea for easy Valentine's Day Smores!! She has the ingredients and directions (along with some great pictures to go along with it) on the link.

I know my kids and husband would love to dive into this snack. I might be creating this over the weekend!!!

I think I have too much time on my hands because of all the blog surfing I do! Love finding new ideas to tryout and share with others. Hope you try this out, and Thanks for looking.


Valentines Day Cupcakes

While out looking for some cute Valentine's Day ideas I came across this SUPER cute idea for cupcakes. Thanks to Alison at Alison's Wonder Scraporium for sharing this, I love it! She has a great recipe for strawberry Laffy Taffy bttercream icing there too.

The recipe looks pretty easy, I might try it with just a box cake mix first then see how that works before trying a cake mix from scratch. I'm NOT a baker, just like to try new ideas.

This is such a great idea that it could be used for any Holiday - St Patrick's day shamrock, Halloween pumpkin, or for a birthday - any thing that has a little cookie cutter!

Thanks for looking and good luck trying this out.
