What’s For Dinner?

So as part of our budgeting process, my job is to bring down our grocery costs.  I’ve been couponing for a little over a year now and do pretty good.  I usually save between 12 and 30%.  I do strive to be better, but need to put in the time coupon hunting.  I did find that one good way to cut costs was to make a dinner menu for two weeks at [...]

Lunch Letters

Since I’m now a stay at home mom, we have to cut some corners, so I make lunch for my husband every day for work, which is a big saver by the way!  I always like to place a little note in the bag to let him know I’m thinking of him and/or put a smile on his face.  I created this template to use to keep it quick and simple.  No [...]

3D Shadow Box Scene

In the spirit of the bitter cold, I thought I’d create a fun winter scene to put out this time of year. While we did have one good snow this year, we currently do not have any snow on the ground and it is 15 degrees out, so in lieu of the bitter cold, I needed SNOW! So I made some. Now I just look at this and it feels like it’s a beautiful [...]

Toddler Sized Thank-You!

Now that I’m a stay at home mom I’ve found that I actually have time to send those thank-you notes that I always want to send but somehow usually put off until it’s so late the person probably wouldn’t even remember why I was thanking them in the first place.   So with this new-found time, I thought Jackson was old enough to make his own [...]

With a Cherry On Top…

A friend at work recently had a baby and for her shower they wanted to go with a Cherry, Red & Black Polka Dot theme.  They asked me to make cupcakes for the party, so I figured I had to throw in a few Cherry Cake-pops!  They turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself The stems are made of Gumpaste.  Just dye it with frosting foodcoloring [...]

It’s my house!

You may have seen one of my other crafts…It’s my room!  Well this is the grown up version of that craft.  It’s the family plaque/sign.  For these I made the family as my corner image.  You could do something different, like a solid color house or something similar to the style in the kids version of this craft, if you feel [...]

Baby showers bring…baby shower cakes, what else…

So I had a recent order for a baby shower cake in coming months, and it made me start thinking of some I’ve done in the past that are favorites.  I picked three baby shower cakes to share today.  First is the diaper bag, complete with diapers, blanket, rings, keys and a bottle; all edible.  Second is the super cute, yet simple two layer [...]

Adult Sized Chores

Well I made a cute little chore list for my toddler (Kid Sized Chores) and thought…maybe if I reward myself with a check mark after each chore, I would be more likely to complete them.  Not as cool as a sticker, but I’ll settle for the satisfaction of marking it off my list and admiring just how much I accomplished! So I sat down and [...]

Kid Sized Chores

So I have a little one who is 2.5 years old and I figured it was time to get him introduced to chores; that IS why I had him.  I wanted to make him a kid friendly chore chart to make his daily chores more fun.  I originally thought I’d start from scratch, since I am a graphic designer and all, but decided why waste the time when certainly [...]
