Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. Since I am in line at a store about 200 deep on Black Friday, I thought I would share a cute foodie/craft from yesterday. I asked my mom what she wanted me to do for thanksgiving and she said ‘make cookies’. Ugh. So I took full advantage of the situation and made my first batch of sugar cookies with icing.

How adorable are these pumpkin pie cookies? I started out with a four inch circle to use as a template. Then I tried to cut eight uniformed ‘slices’.

I baked them and they came out in different sizes. I need to work on that.

Then I made up the icing which was the most difficult part. You need a firm batch for the cookie outline. Then you need a ‘not so’ firm icing batch to flood the space between the outlines. Then you need a batch of white (whipped cream), light brown (pie crust) and of course orange (for pumpkin filling).

They tasted like vanilla and not like pumpkin which I think the kids actually liked. And boy they were so good and soft. I can’t wait to try again with Christmas cookies. Stay tuned.

Hello everyone. It is just a few days away from the New England Patriot's season opener. I want to share three cute cards I made for friends that share my passion for Patriots football.
The pattern is from Kadoodle Bug Designs. I also made matching envelopes.
How adorable are these? Super happy with how they came out. Good luck to the Pat's and let have a great season.

Today is my nephew Andrew's 15th birthday. Like most teenagers, all he wants is money. I hate just putting money in a card even if the card is homemade. So this is what I did for him...
It is a tissue box filled with one dollar bills.
I opened up a brand new box on the side and removed the contents (with a helper).
I then taped all the money together. I rolled it all up and stuck it in the box. I taped the first bill to the lid of the box and hot glued the box closed. Then I decorated the box.
I love doing hand lettering, but obviously need more practice.
Another side...
This makes me laugh every time I look at it.
Haha, I think this came out so cute. I hope Andrew has the best birthday yet.

Hi folks. I just want to share a cute card I made for my sister.
I stopped by her house one day last week and she went through her garden with me. She gave me a little bit of almost every plant she had to transplant at my house!!!!!! I was busy for hours after. I am positive that I planted the wrong things together but I will have fun next year too moving them to where they should be. 
The pattern is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I love how it came out and I know that my sister loved it as well. Thanks for looking.

Hi folks. I just wanted to share another great 3D skate project that I did.
I made these for an amazing ice skater who has had a tough year of injuries. 
I included a note that wished her a speedy recovery and signed it from 'one of her biggest fans'. She left a message on my voicemail that said she loved them. She was going to hang them in her room and keep them forever. :) You can't get better praise than that :) Feel better Emily.

Hi everyone, I want to share a special project I made for my niece Courtney's birthday.
How awesome are these? It is all made of paper, except the metal grommets holding the laces and the metal nuts on the wheels. The pattern is from My Scrap Chick.It was actually an ice skate that I altered into roller skates to match Courtney's. Here is a photo of her's...
I think I did a pretty good job matching them up :) I hope you have the best birthday ever Court.

I am so excited to this year have a herb carousel. There is nothing like fresh herbs to cook with, especially in the summer. (I love to make garlic, chive butter for steaks and corn.)
I love my cameo especially when I can use it for other loves in my life like gardening!!

Yesterday was my oldest sister's birthday. I had to wait til today to show you all what I made her.
Look, I made her a 3D sewing machine.
This is all made from paper with a real needle. The pattern is from Lori Whitlock.
When I finished, I thought it was a bit plain. So I attempted to dress it up a bit with paint and may have gone a little overboard.
I did alter the pattern a make it into a box to hide some yummy treats inside.
Thanks so much for looking.

So for Harper's last gift of the day, I made birthday cake.
I just love how this cake came out. It looks so real.
Thanks so much for spending the day celebrating Harper's birthday. I am sure that she loved it and will enjoy her play felt food for days to come.


The celebration is supper.
Here is what is inside...
Felt pizza
Yum, green pepper, pepperoni, mushroom, and onion pizza.
Who wants a slice? Come back in a bit for the grand finale. :)


Welcome back. Here is the second, lunchtime gift to celebrate Harper Caroline's birthday...
This package is actually wrapped in New England Patriot's paper with an official napkin from Gillette Stadium. Where is what is inside...
This is a bologna and cheese sandwich with chips and another strawberry.
The sandwich contains two pieces of white bread, american cheese, swiss cheese, bologna, tomato and roman lettuce. How adorable!!! Come back in a bit and see what is for dinner.


Good morning everyone. Today is a very special day in my is Harper Caroline's 3rd birthday. She is the cutest little girl in the world, so I wanted to really celebrate her day. Last month, I started on creating her 'birthday celebration' that starts out with this hand~lettering sign that I had sitting on top of a very big box I mailed her. (I still need practice!)
This is the tag that was on the first present in the box...
I guess I forgot to take of picture of the actually present wrapped. Sorry, but this is what was inside.
This was my first attempt at felt food. I love how adorable it all came out. Pancakes with butter and syrup, two strips of bacon, to fried eggs and a strawberry garnish. I hope she loves it all.
Come back a little later to see what's for lunch. :)

Thanks for looking and Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.

I want to share an adorable onsie and baby card that I just finished up for a special new baby.
How cute is this? I found it at Target with the wonder woman vinyl on it. I thought it might be a bit cuter if I put her name in the middle with matching glitter vinyl.
Here is the card that I made to go with the present.
How sweet.
This is the inside of the card. I am so excited for the new Mom and Dad and can't wait to meet Nova.
