Crayon Roll

I saw this idea on Skip to My Lou and then I saw someone that had one at my Stake Conference a few months ago. I found the pattern (on skipt to my lou) and started on my first one. It turned out pretty well but adding the ric rac is a little more complicated so I tried one without. This one I made for Gracie's friend Brookie's birthday. I used flannel fabric on this one. Not sure if I like it as well as cotton, but it turned out cute.

Scarecrow Cookies

I (donna) am posting this because Jessica didn't!! These super cute scarecrow cookies are found on Skip To My Lou blog (see our blogs for the link) and Jessica made them with her achievment day girls last week. They turned out very cute and now I am going to make some with my girls.

Bag o' candy corn in a pumpkin can

I bought one of these at a Craft Fair in Utah last year. I thought they would be really cute for gifts (visiting teacher, school teacher etc.). So I just made a couple, just need a soup can and some paint! I filled cello bags 1/4 full of candy corn, tied a ribbon and cut the excess off the top. Put a crumpled up newspaper inside can to fill about half of space, then put your bag o' candy corn on top!

Just for Donna

When I lived in Utah, I started making these bibs. I taught Donna how to do it and then I moved and packed up all of my stuff and haven't made any since. Donna has been making them lately and she got me in the mood. I told her that she had to wait for me to finish some so I could post them because, so far, I haven't contributed to our little blog yet! So here you go famous bibs! Complete with owl fabric! These are the best bibs ever. Once you use one, you will never use any other kind!

Altered Rolodex

This project was done at a scrapbook store in Boise. Jessica signed up for both of us and sent mine to me so that I could finish it. It is very cute and I love having a rolodex. It takes some time to get all the paper cut out and the embellisments attached but your finished project is awesome!! Let me know if you want more detailed instructions. Sorry for the blurry pictures. I need to figure that out with my camera!

Halloween Cards

I've had a little time at night since my husband is gone hunting (we won't talk about that) so I made some halloween cards. I haven't made
cards in a long time and it was so much fun. I need to do it more often because it's fun and it makes me feel good to create something. I know it's not even October but everyone has their halloween stuff out and it got me in the mOOD. Happy Haunting!!

Fun and Funky Birthday Cake

This was a cake that Jessica found from last year. It's called the "Let's Party" Cake. When she told me about it we decided to challenge eachother to a bake off! 2 of our girls have birthdays 2 days apart so we both made it within a few days of eachother. It was a lot of fun to make. If you go to the website you can find the entire recipe. The candy I used was skittles. It looks a little lopsided in this picture but it was really cute!!
