Episode #431 ~ Re-Purpose/Re-Use… It smells so GOOD!

Hi Everyone,

  I am in fill fall/Thanksgiving mode & love to scent my house with these wax tarts. I  have one of the electric warmers from Yankee Candle shop & I sometimes use their tarts, but found these at my local grocery store. They smell fabulous & cost about .40 less than the Yankee ones - I just love the scent & the idea of re-purposing things. Plus, they make the whole house smell good, even the Trick-or-Treators commented on Halloween how good our house smelled when they walked up to the house & we opened the front door. Give it a try!

Episode #427 ~ "Super Simple Sunday" #36 Using Fall Fest & Happy Waterco...

Happy Sunday Stampers,

  I haven't done a "Super Simple Sunday" video in FOREVER!!! So, I am doing one today because this fall card couldn't be any "simpler". I went to a group meeting with my old stamping friends from years ago when we used to live here in Illinois. It was so great to see everyone again & get back to sharing ideas!

  Sequins are my new best friend & I love to sprinkle just a few on my cards for a little bit of bling. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment as I will be checking my blog as well as my channel.

  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday ~

Episode #428- Ghostly Treat Box

Happy Columbus Day Friends,

  It's a rainy, yucky day here in Chicago - it's my house cleaning day & so I am of course playing in my craft room first! The cleaning can wait just a little bit!!!

  I have been itching to play with this awesome new Curly Keepsake Box from Stampin' Up! so i looked around on Pinterest & got my inspiration from a gal named Nancyprints. She had done a card & i simply adjusted it to make into a treat box. The candy corn will go in ON halloween, because if I do it now… my teenage son will eat it! Momma likes it too ~

  Give this fun project a try, I know they will be a huge hit when I pass them out to neighbors & friends at the Halloween Party we are going to this weekend.

Happy Crafting -
