Dog'gone Cute!!!

Wherever we go, my Kiddo's are always trying to get me to buy our Dogs either clothes, treats or toys. Most of the time...I say no but the other day we were in a Chocolate Factory and saw some white dipped dog treats....since I thought chocolate was poisonous to doggies?! I asked about them....No chocolate in these, they were made from yogurt. Perfectly safe for dogs!! So I bought some and our dogs loved them!!...Which of course prompted me to must have some all natural yogurt dipped dog treats...with "sprinkles" for Christmas!! {and yes, even the Dogs, HAVE to have "sprinkles"!!}

The plan is to take some to the craft fair with me and put some in my Etsy store but I'm still wondering if I made the dip too wet??!! I'm not sure if they are going to fully dry!! They look fun and since the dogs have been wondering in and out of the kitchen they must smell good to them. So lets hope they dry, otherwise I'll have to put them in a container and our doggies are going to have some gooey treats this Christmas month!!

Who knew dog treats could be so cute!! {I know, I've lost my mind! It happens all the time!!}
The Kids are back to school tomorrow after a full week off and hopefully, I will be able to get the house back in a little bit of order and finish the laundry. A shower during daylight hours would be nice too! I need to go to Sam's Club to get some yummy cocoa packets for some snowman soup I'm making and managing my time better this week would be great! I swear this computer is able to suck up so much of my time its amazing!!!! Hopefully you are rested from this past holiday!! What are your exciting plans this week??

Happy Friday!!!

I'm recovering from my yearly dose of tryptophan and the sleepiness that come afterwards!! I even slept in =:O) Of course my tiredness could have come from all the older Kids going out at midnight to do some Christmas shopping and either calling or coming home at 3, 4, and almost 5 in the morning!! All telling stories of the crowds and their CrAzY shopping experiences....I did a little online shopping at midnight and was pretty happy with my purchases. I'm not a big crowd fighter so I was done by 12:30am!! Did you brave the crowds and go out? What was your most amazing deal?

I did make some of these little candy pockets goodie bags before the Thanksgiving guests arrived. I saw some similar for Thanksgiving and thought what a great idea for Christmas!

Filled with lots of yummy candy....The Candy cane can be placed on the tree afterwards and the little tag can even be used again on a parcel or package! Love that!! Too fun!! I put some in my etsy store in case your interested!

Well, I'm off...going to do a little more online shopping and then start working on some more goodie bags for the craft show. Hope you are having a Great Day and if you're are getting Great deals!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Just a quick pop in here to say....Happy Thanksgiving!!!
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving, if I didn't say what I'm thankful for, even though I know I should say it more often...
so, not in any particular order....
I am very Thankful for everyone who visits my blog and to those who leave comments and those that don't.
I am very Thankful for those whom support me with every purchase!
I am Thankful for my beautiful, crazy, exciting, interesting, lovely Family...near and far, whom I desperately love, a lot, a lot!
I am Thankful for Friends who sometimes amaze me with their kindness, thoughtfulness, the laughter they bring and just plain niceness!!
I am so very Thankful for my Honey, who never fails to work harder, treats me like a Princess and is a wonderful Dad....everyday!!
There is so much more I am Thankful for...but I guess you just need to know that
I am Thankful!!

I hope you have a Wonderful Holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Baby it's Cold Outside!!!! Brrrrrrr.....

It's Freezing!! its not exactly freezing...but it feels like it to me!! There is even a Freezing warning for the it IS cold...perfect time to make these wrapped Chocolate Bars! When I was cruising around and saw these little snowman here, I sweet {like most of her stuff...Cute, Cute, Cute!!}! These are such perfect little winter treats! I decided I couldn't help but make some and sitting here freezing right now was the perfect time!!

I love the little wrappers but felt I needed to make them a little more dimensional for I put some glitter on the hearts and used Crystal Lacquer on ALL the little black buttons...they almost feel like they are popping off the chocolate bar now!! I love it...and they are shiny too!! If I make them again, I will add the Crystal Lacquer to their little carrot noses too!! Have you used Crystal Lacquer?

I've had quite a few emails regarding my little Magic Reindeer Food...a lot wanting to know whats in em'....I used colorful bird seed, oats and sugar crystals in mine. Eco-Friendly!! The fun part about it...we tossed the left over mix out in the yard and.....there have been more birds out there! {Kinda sad for the Doggies, who really, really, want to chase those birds but fun for us to watch!!} Thank you to everyone who wrote with your nice comments!! They mean a lot to me!!
The weeks continue to be crazy trying to get things together for the craft fairs. I sure hope I end up having a lot...right now its looking pretty slim...but I'm trying...really I am...even in between taking the Kids to a pre-screening of the movie Tangled..Which was very fun..this little guy was my favorite part...

It comes out on Wednesday so if you like cute Disney movies...go see it!! You'll laugh!!
Well...its late and cold...I'm off to snuggle up...

Magic Reindeer Food!!

I'm still here! Sorry for the lack of posts lately...I'm really trying hard to get ready for the craft shows....I love to do them but at the same time, I always want my stuff to be super cute and so I think that makes me super slow moving {plus, the four Kids at home might have a little something to do with it!} My craft room is a major disaster!!! WOW...its almost hard to walk in here! I did just finished a bunch of little test tubes filled to the brim with Magic Reindeer Food!! The kind you sprinkle on your lawn on Christmas Eve to help Santa find his way right to your house!

I love how they turned out! Is that weird to say about your own stuff? Well...I guess if I didn't like wouldn't be seeing it and I certainly wouldn't be selling it eh?! I think thats whats hard about blogging never know if anyone likes your stuff.

I think my favorite part of these little tags is the little sprig behind the "oh, deer" tag! Fun! I love these PTI stamps!! I think I have a PTI addiction. {lol, that actually sounds like something scary! Its not, really!} On the back of each tag is a little poem on how to sprinkle the reindeer food...{Love}

What are you doing? Are you going to any craft fairs? Are you doing any craft fairs? I seriously think Christmas is coming WAY to fast!! Hope you're doing something you love!

Happy Little Houses!!

November is FLYING by! Super fast!! It just needs to slow down...I have so many things to do!!! Is it going quick for you? All the stores kinda skip Thanksgiving too, nothing but Christmas right after Halloween. Its all too fast for me right now!
I have been crafting though....working on items for the craft fairs I'm doing. I've been working on these little house ornaments..they are so cute...I love that each one has its own personality!

I told my youngest there were magic fairies in she wants them all and has been asking for me to make her one with dogs on I'll have to be on the lookout for some cutie dog fabric print. I still have more to sew....they all seem to be in various stages of done....but not enough completed....

What are you working on? Are you doing any craft fairs?
I'm off to sew some more....Have a great rest of the week!!

November Already!!?!!

This month is going to be super busy!! I am doing a couple of crafts shows in early December and will be trying to get all sorts of goodies ready for them in the next couple of weeks!! Unfortunately...with all this leftover Halloween candy starring at me and my lack of will power over such yummy deliciousness, I decided to bag a few into these cute little bags!!

This one is making its way home to AZ tonight...tucked safely into my sisters luggage for giving to my other Sister! How can anyone loss weight this week?! Oh, I know most can...but I have a serious feeling that tomorrow the scale will not go in my favor...and it will be my will powers fault for sure!!
Get ready to see some craft fair items in the next couple of weeks....I feel I'm already many little time!!
Off to get ready to take my Sister to the airport...with tears in my eyes already!! =:O(
