Hostess with the Mostess - I won!

I just popped on over to one of the blogs I visit on a daily basis and saw Craft&Bake mentioned. Was it a typo? Was I imagining it? No and no. I entered a giveaway on the site a few days ago for this delicious goody and I won! So exciting! Thank you HWTM and Kiwi Studios. I can't wait to display it in my craft room!

* Update *
It arrived and it's even more beautiful in person. It looks like candy! Thank you again HWTM and Kiwi Studios! I love it!

Fun Paper Goods!

I am seriously drooling over a new (to me) line of paper goodies called Memory Boutique! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, drool worthy designs - tags made on chipboard, inspiring papers, fun rub-ons... the list goes on and on!

I'm the chairperson for the PTA's art program at my kids' school again this year and in preparation for the upcoming awards ceremony, I put together the invitations. Since the event is a little over a week away, I affixed large, business card sized magnet strips to the back of each card so that the parents can place them on the fridge as a reminder. I had intended on doing some rubber stamping and adding some adhesive backed rhinestones to them as well, but time was not on my side and I needed to get them done and delivered by today.

Valentine's Day Goodies

For both kids this year, we made Valentine Envelopes that were bursting at the seems with goodies. Using wax envelopes, each were filled with red, pink and white candies and small trinkets. Then, we attached handmade cards rubber stamped and then added a puffy conversation heart sticker to each. They were a huge hit with both classes and a nice change of pace from the ho-hum store bought variety too!
