Keeping the Halloween Mojo going!!

I was only able to create 1 thing this weekend. But 1 is better then 0 right? :)
Julia told me about these cute little hand sanitizers over at Bath & Body Works.
They are cute all by themselves.
But create a container for them and you have way too cute!!! Julia found the directions for this project at Pink Buckaroo designs.
Last week the hand sanitizers were 5 for $5 at Bath and Body Works. So there you have it if you want to try these yourself.

The inside of the container. The possibilities are are endless for designing these cute little packages. Here is part of the reason that I didn't do much crafting this weekend. Took a carload of kids and my parents to Monterey yesterday to check out my daugthers new place. We checked out the house she is renting with her roomates in Marina. Then we went into Monterey for pizza at Gianni's (Great pizza!) Then we did a little bargain shopping and headed to the beach for a bit before heading home. This photo is of my kids, my neices and Johns daughter goofing at the beach!!! Have a great week! Talk to you soon!

Getting some Halloween Craft mojo going!!!

Julia and her twin Judy came over today to show Dawn, Dawn and I how to make a few Stampin' Up Halloween goodies!!!
We had fun!!!! I made Laura Bush's Cowboy cookies, salami rollups and cut up a watermelon. So we all had a snack then began creating!
Don't you just love all these fall colors! On your left is a peppermint pattie with a purple scallop and a bug eyed spider stamp! We even glued tiny "googlie" eyes on the little spider!! Next we have a cute 3 X 3 owl card. We textured the brown paper and used the owl punch to put this little cutie together!
Then we move on to the darling milk carton. Can you see the "to open" stamp, just like a real carton of milk!!! We used a die cut for this one. This die cut is on my wish list! I will be getting it soon!!! Love love love the milk carton!!!! Love it down to the itsy bity clip on top!!! Julia was kind enough to lend me the die cut so I can make more more more!!!!!
Then we have the cool little M&M tubes. Julia found these clear packages at We used the scallop punch and the scaredy cat stamp!! Cute Cute Cute!!!
Yes, I think I got my mojo back!!!! Sure hope it lasts for a little while!!!
I was trying not to make a mess on my kitchen table anymore, but you should see it tonight! Stuff everywhere!!!

Thanks to Julia and Judy our sweet teachers! And thanks to Dawn and Dawn for joining us on craft day!!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!!!
Talk to you soon!

A girls gotta dream!!!!

I dream of a great big huge kitchen and family room someday. I may or may not ever see these dreams come true.
I do however have a smaller dream. This fabulous project table from from Pottery Barn.
Not sure where I would put it, but I want it!!!
I know my craft lovin' friends out there can apreciate this cool table!!!! Wish I had a nice big studio to put in as well!!!! I would have to put it in the garage!
I posted my dream pic on the frig and John asked how much it was. I answered "It is on sale for 900 and some odd dollars" He said, "Huh, I could make something better for way less!!! "
I say go for it John!!!! Hope he comes up with some ideas soon!!!!
I am having a Halloween Crafty day at my house this Saturday at 1pm. My friend and craft mentor Julia is bringing over 3 Halloween Projects with Stampin' Up supplies! Still a couple seats left if anyone near Lodi CA wants to join us! Just send me an email!!!

Hope you are having a great week!
