It's the Gift-Giving Season!

Ahh!  This is the most wonderful time of the year!  I roll right into the Christmas hustle and bustle with one thing on my mind: gift-giving!  Maybe that's a bit materialistic of me, but I love giving gifts to family and friends and those whom I care about to show my appreciation over the past year.  Plus, the Wise Men gave Baby Jesus presents to honor Him becoming King one day, and, not to dishonor the importance of this Biblical Event, but the people in my "village" who help me get through life one day at a time, are like "royalty" to me.  So, I'd like to shower them with little gifts, too.

Right now, I'm currently obsessed over these adorable little Mini Pizza Boxes that Stampin' Up! released in our Holiday Catalog.  These boxes assemble quickly and easily, so I don't have to make them myself.  Instead, I can simply add a few frills and there we go.  Ready to stuff and give.  How easy is that!?

This week, I'm decorating them up so I can pack them full of goodies (think cookies or candies) for the service providers in my life.  Like the Sanitation Workers, who faithfully each Tuesday, come by and pick up my awful piles of trash (seriously, I don't care how many layers of Diaper Genie plastic you have, poopy toddler diapers STINK!).  And my Postal Carrier and UPS Delivery Driver, who seem to come by for a weekly visit with boxes for me.  These folks deserve a little gift of appreciation, and these little boxes are perfect for that!

Check out a few that I've done here:

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
