I'm Hooked on You {Purse Hook Valentine}

The Sharpie mugs I shared in the last post were supposed to be the last of this year’s Valentine’s Day ideas that I had for you. That was until I saw this purse hook in Target’s bargain section over the weekend. It wasn’t my first time coming across them, but it wasn’t until this last trip that a light bulb went off! If you haven’t figured it out by now, […]

How Do You Take Your Coffee? {Personalized Mugs}

Surely you have seen all the Sharpie marker on glass crafts out there. I’ve been wanting to give it a try for some time, and finally did! Apparently the Sharpie marker on glass craft is not a sure thing. There have been some hit and miss for some who have already experimented with it. Meaning, after being washed a few times [in the dishwasher in particular], it’s not necessarily permanent […]

Milk Bath & Cookie Scrub {Valentine's Day}

I’ve been having fun putting together some valentines. In case you missed my latest Valentine’s Day creations, be sure to check them out HERE. Today I have another one for you. This one is all about pampering your valentine with milk and cookies… spa style! I put together a little milk bath and cookie scrub gift basket for Suraya’s teacher. Initially I had thought of just making a sugar scrub […]

For the Key to My Heart {Valentine Key Chain}

I am a sucker for cute.. and handmade cuteness even more. When I saw these too cute for words handmade “house” key chains on Flickr, I knew I had to make one… but a Valentine’s Day version instead! And of course I couldn’t resist including a cute phrase to go along with it… For the Key to My Heart. I know, I know… I can be cheesy sometimes. I’ll just […]

Props to U Valentine!

This school year, Suraya’s school decided edible treats were no longer allowed for school parties or for birthday treats. You can imagine my disappointment. I LOVE edible gifts and especially LOVE packaging them. The first thing that always comes to mind where school parties and birthday treats are involved are edible treats… sweet ones of course. I blame that on my sweet tooth. :P However I had to think outside […]

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

Can you believe we are already talking about Valentine’s Day? It’s in stores… it’s all over Pinterest and blog land too! So I thought why not join in on the fun. It’s a holiday full of cuteness… and I can’t resist that! I thought today I’d start out with some of my past Valentine’s Day ideas that I have shared with you. Last Valentine’s, I had a cookie decorating itch… […]

Happy Thanksgiving

When my four year old nephew Gabriel was asked what will he be having on Thanksgiving, he responded “Turkey, corn, mash potatoes…. pie, cake, and cookies…” Then he finished it off with full on enthusiasm… “I’m going to get fat!” Yup we sure are, and we plan on enjoying every bite! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Enjoy your turkey and all the other yummy goodness!

Thanksgiving Favor & Place Card Setting

In the last post I shared a new favorite cookie recipe of mine… Spiced cardamom cookies. I’m going to be using these cookies for my Thanksgiving favors which can also be used as place card settings. Want to see how I packaged them? I’ve been loving all the printed burlap that have become available in fabric stores. As soon as I saw these three printed burlap, I knew I needed […]

Happy Halloween

As you Trick-or-Treat….. Beware of a carelessly flying witch slamming into doors. A zombie lurking behind those very doors. Skeletons that may have lost their heads. Spiders spinning their webs. Homes that may be haunted by some ghosts. And the spookiest of them all… A snowman sweeping the front entrance to make way for what… we do not know. Beware of this one most of all! ;) Yeah, you never know […]

Easy Trick-or-Treat Bag

Last week I shared Suraya’s Halloween costume…. a funky witch! It turns out she needed a new trick-or-treat bag too! With little time left before Halloween, I made her a quick and easy, but yet funky bag to go along with her costume. What made this project even easier is my Silhouette. However, even if you don’t own a Silhouette, this is still a simple bag to make… you would […]
