Slice of Life Sundays: 9-28-14

slice-of-life-sundays

This is our last Sunday of September. Can you believe it? This year is just flying by. I was at Michaels craft store yesterday and they already had Christmas stuff out right next to the Halloween stuff. It's getting ridiculous how early retailers are displaying their Christmas stuff. It's almost like a competition to see who does it first. I picked up a few Americana Decor Chalky Finish paints since they were on sale for 30% off. I'm anxious to give them a try. I got the colors delicate, relic, yesteryear and everlasting. I already have the color vintage but haven't used it yet. I also … [Continue reading...]

Sweet Halloween Ideas

Sweet-Halloween-Ideas

It's officially fall!!!! Can you hear the collective cheer? It's time for ghosts & ghouls, pumpkin spice fill in the blank, boots, comfy sweaters, hair that doesn't fall flat and makeup that doesn't melt. It's time to get our strut on and enjoy some good eats. So excited! The first holiday of the fall is Halloween and to celebrate I thought I'd put together this round-up of sweet Halloween ideas for you. Feel free to pin the collage and this post. However, if you wish to pin an individual idea below please click on the link to the actual post and pin from there. I appreciate … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 9-21-14

slice-of-life-sundays

Another Sunday is upon us. The weekends go by way too fast. The only thing that makes it a good day is that Total Divas is on tonight on E. Lol! Yes that's a guilty pleasure of mine. I like to see these woman be friendly on the one hand and then catty on the other. With WWE shows being scripted it's nice to see their real lives outside of their characters. You know what else I'm excited about? The Voice! It starts tomorrow. My DVR is going to be working hard. I'll be watching The Voice and Dancing with the Stars simultaneously. I hate commercials so I switch back & forth until I get … [Continue reading...]

Safari Cookies

Safari-Cookies

I'm slowly starting to get back into the cookie game and enjoying it. I recently made these safari cookies for a friend whose co-worker and friend is expecting her first child. I made my own stencil for the giraffe print cookie. A stencil maker I'm not but it did the job. I got the palm tree and leaf cookie cutters from Truly Mad Plastics. It's so awesome that they're local. When I get a request for cookies and I don't have the cutters I need I can get them quickly from them. I have a couple of recipes that I want to test this weekend. If they're winners they'll make an … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 9-14-14

Can you believe that we are midway through September? I can't believe it. We had our first cool front of the season this weekend. We had lows in the 70's and highs in the 80's. Not a huge cool down but we'll take it. I can't wait until I can wear my first sweater and boots. This time of year is my favorite. Fall also means that all my favorite shows are coming back. Revenge, Sons of Anarchy, Grey's Anatomy, The Walking Dead, Scandal, Dancing with the Stars, American Horror Story just to name a few. My DVR will be working overtime. Don't forget that the Party in Your PJ's Link Party is … [Continue reading...]

Cupcake Birthday Card

Cupcake-Birthday-Card-2

Do you ever want to pull your hair out sometimes?  I do but since mine is thinning it's not a wise idea. Lol! It's such a busy time at work and I feel like blogging has taken the back seat. I want to be creating things and sharing them with you but most days I'm just too exhausted. I can't wait for cold weather to get here so that things will slow down at work. I did get a chance to create this cupcake birthday card for a special girl. I was so happy to be able to use an Avery Elle stamp set that's been sitting in a drawer since I bought it. I colored the top of the cupcake and the … [Continue reading...]
