My Advent Calendar

   It's not the best picture but I just had to share our very simple advent calendar we made last night. We used scrapbooking paper!  I love this paper and I don't even scrapbook. The paper can be used in so many different ways. One of the ways I love to use it is as a background for my blog pictures.

So, all we did was roughly cut four squares out of each sheet and folded them. Then we used fun markers to write the numbers. On the inside we wrote simple activities and messages.  Some activities we wrote were go see Christmas lights or write a letter to a friend. I think next year we will get a little more creative with it. What do you put inside your calendars?  Let me know.

Glass Pearl Necklace

It has taken a little while for me to post this necklace,  but I'm finally getting around to it. It's beautiful and elegant.  It's not just a necklace it's also a wrap bracelet. I had so much fun making it and can't wait to make another one. I have some more sewing projects coming up and some other things in the works too. I hope you all are as excited as I am.

Oh, one more thing, I have started selling Gold Canyon Candles.  Have you heard of them? They are only the best scented candles and accessories.  Enjoy the necklace and I'll see you soon.

Happy Fall

I know, it's not Fall yet.  That makes me a little sad. I just love everything about fall. The colors, the weather,  and pumpkin everything.  Don't you?

Anyway,  I was so excited about the beginning of September that I just had to show you all this lovely sign that I just finished.  It's nice and simple.  Just some paint, stickers, hot glue and other fun things. So, here it is. I hope you like it.

What's your favorite season?  Let me know in the comments.

Summer's End

Well, its that time of year again. It's back to school time and the end of summer. I don't know about you but it seems like summer is over faster than the year before.

Soon the leaves will be changing and it will be time for hot chocolate and throw blankets. I can't wait until the weather starts to cool off again.

Before the recipes change with the seasons I'm going to post one more summer recipe. What recipe would you like to see as the last recipe of summer? Truffles, no bake, beverage?  Or anything else. Let me know in the comments.  Have a great day everyone.
