Fall Caramel Apple Basket...

Yay-Fall is almost officially here! Unfortunately, it's still going to be warm here in Southern Nevada for a while now so the cooler temps can't come soon enough for me.   

Despite the never-ending heat, a Fall Basket full of Caramel Apple goodies sounds like a great treat anytime of the year.  Right?  Even if you don't care for candy apples, you gotta love a Mason Jar full of caramels! Yum!

This Fall Basket is embellished with the Pebbles Inc Basics and Home + Made collections.  Not only is it totally cute, it contains all the goodies you'd need to make caramels apples including sprinkles and the Popsicle sticks. 

How to make a Mini Pallet...

The kiddos are back in school now but maybe you feel like you still need to bring in something for the teacher. Ya know, to show off you mad craft skills.  This teacher gift isn't so much about the Apple, it's about the way it's presented on a DIY Mini Pallet, wrapped up in twine and a cute tag...Swoon!

It's apple week over on the Pebbles Blog where I'm sharing this fun apple project made with the Pebbles Back to School stickers and the Home + Made collection.  I know, apples pretty much scream teacher and I'm sure some teachers receive soooo many apples they probably could make a dozen Apple Pies with them.  Whatever apple, it's the thought that counts and the presentation of course.

Felt Bookmarks...

School is back in session and some of us have to start encouraging nagging the kids to get back into the daily habit of reading homework.  My kids seem to only want to read on their time not so much during homework time.  It makes for a nice evening.  So, to make reading a lil' more fun, I made my kids some cute Felt Bookmarks using Laura Kelly's new Pet Shop Sizzix Dies.

The super creative Laura Kelly sent me some of her Pet Shop cuties along with a bunch of other fun stuff to play with.  Yay for Happy Mail!

Woodland Nursery Monogram...

I like Monograms.  I counted 8 letter G's in my house alone.  G is for my last name, in case you're wondering.  My SIL is expecting a baby boy soon so I decided to make a Woodland themed Nursery Monogram for my nephew using the Pebbles Special Delivery- Boy collection.

M stands for Micah.  Love the name.  If I ever had another boy, I'd name him Micah and just for the record, if I had another girl, I'd name her Grace.

Well, looks like my chosen name of Micah was just taken and for the record, so was my girl name.  The other SIL took the name Grace as her daughters middle name.  Geez, the nerve of some peeps.

Anyways, even though the Fam stole my favorite chosen baby names, I'll forgive them.  Advance maternal age is going on over here and any plans for a baby are on snooze so they can have my coveted names.  Pfft!

Crepe Paper Flowers...

Looking for a quick, simple and inexpensive way to decorate for a party?  Well, Crepe Paper Flowers to the rescue!

Last Spring, I volunteered to coordinate decorations for the Teacher Lounge during Teacher Appreciation Week.   Let's just say....ahhh huge task!  Seriously,  I wasn't sure if I was gonna to survive 6 different decorating themes with my Crafting OCD issues.

I did survive though and it certainly was a challenge to think up simple and inexpensive ways to decorate a Teachers Lounge on a budget.  So what's really cheap and easy to work with?   Crepe Paper.

DIY Picture Frame using Cut Files...

I'm over on the Echo Park Paper blog showing you how to easily make a DIY Picture Frame out of Echo Park Paper Silhouette cut files and the Princess Theme Mini Kit.

What's unique about creating with Silhouette shapes is that most shapes can be re-sized to use in variety of ways, just like this Echo Park Mirror Cut File.  I simply enlarged the mirror shape to 9 inches and made a Picture Frame out of it.
