We had a blessed Easter with family and friends celebrating our Risen Lord. It was such a treat to have ALL our kiddos home and even a few extra. The pic above of our table shows the calm before the storm. I think this is the first year I actually gave in and used paper and plastic plates. GASP!!! I know… I couldn’t believe it either. But as I was setting up the table Saturday night I didn’t want to spend my time on Easter hand washing all those china dishes. It’s okay to take a break some years and as our family continues to grow and move out our time with all of them here together is priceless. Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of sharing a quick and fun DIY project with Mom Connection, a group of young moms at my church. When I was asked to come up with a creative activity lots of ideas went through my head. Young moms definitely need to feel loved, appreciated and pampered so I decided to share with them how to make a yummy homemade sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs are such a simple way to pamper yourself and they make a wonderful gift during the Christmas season. Continue reading

It’s been a Spring Break week for us here in Ohio. And if you know anything about Ohio you’ll know it’s a bit confused about what “Spring” means. You know…. sunshine, warmth, singing birds, budding flowers. If I’m honest I will admit that I’m a bit envious of all the beach and ocean view posts I’m seeing from friends all over facebook and Instagram.
Yep… This was our view in Ohio this week. Someone forgot the memo that it is Spring here.
Yep… That’s me… somewhere behind that cold and snow flurry blown hair… not the gentle ocean breeze I would prefer.
But there is one thing I’ve learned in life… ok maybe a few things. Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair. Sometimes life is difficult. Sometimes life is ugly. Sometimes you don’t get what you want. Sometimes you can’t seem to find what you need.
Those are the times you have to seek… to find beauty. Those are the times you may have to create beauty. Those are the times you may even have to give what you need to find what you seek. It is in those times you may not get what you want but instead you find out you will get what you needed all along.
So this Spring Break I had to choose to find the beauty in the season I am personally in at this time. That season goes way beyond the weather. There is beauty to be found… even in the cold “winter like” Spring of Ohio.
One place I find beauty in is creating quick and easy projects. So that is where these fun DIY Chocolate Butterflies come in. I created these for a Spring Event I had a couple years ago.
Look how fun they are!!! They were the perfect touch for my event to top off the cupcakes. Let me show you just how quick and easy they were to make…
I just used chocolate chips and melted them down. Follow the melting instructions on the package you purchase. Once melted I placed them into an icing bag with a small circle decorating tip. If you don’t have icing bags as I used here you can simply use a baggie and cut a tiny hole in the corner. I found an image I wanted to use from my Stampin’ Up! Catalog then laid a piece of wax paper over the image and just traced it. Once I had all the butterflies I needed I gently placed the wax paper onto a cookie sheet and placed in frig to harden. Once they were harden I carefully peeled them up and placed them on top of my prepared cupcakes. Quick and easy! You could also do this with any of the candy melts that come in multiple colors as well as trace any other image you might need. How fun is that!!!
So I encourage you to go find beauty in today… seek it out… and if you can’t find it I challenge you to create it.
Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is quickly coming to an end…
If you purchase $50 you can choose a Sale-A-ration Product for FREE till the end of March!
OR… if your wish list is long JOIN my team for continued discounts on all your favorite products. I’d love to share with you all the benefits of joining and being a part of my Stampin’ Up! family. Contact ME today if you would like to chat about it!
Place at least a $50 order and not only will you get to choose a FREE SAB product I will also send you this card as a thank you..
Blessings and Happy Creating!
Don’t you wish that “Easy Button” for life really existed sometimes? I know after days like today I do. I was up most of the night trying to get my blog up and running only to have it crash with one wrong click. I spent most of the day trying to get it back up. After countless attempts on my own I gave in and called Bluehost. The gentleman on the other end of the phone had my site up and running again in less than 2 minutes. You see, he had the easy button because he had the knowledge and tools to fix it in a matter of a few clicks.
What if you had the knowledge and tools to make creating easy? Our awesome “Simply Created Kits” not only have all the supplies you need they also have instructions to guide you along the way. Check out a few of my favorites.
And how can you not LOVE our Burlap and Blooms Wreath!!! These flowers were soooo fun to create and I can’t wait to share just how easy they are to make. Two class times to choose from – Wed. March 19th at 10am or Thur. March 20 at 6:30pm.
So push that EASY BUTTON with one of our kits today! You can order directly from my ONLINE STORE any time day or night and your kits will ship directly to your door. Now that’s easy!
Blessings & Happy Stampin’
