Happy Thanksgiving Mints and neatness!

Happy Saturday Morning!!! I am grateful to have a few minutes this morning to post. Please forgive the photography, switched computers and can't figure out how to edit my photos yet.
I am also grateful to have had some time over the last couple of days to make a lot of these sour cream containers filled with Wintergreen Lifesavers that will be at each place setting at my parents house and Johns sister's house on Thanksgiving. I made so many that I can give them to my co workers on Wednesday too! I love making these because they are sooooo EASY!!!!!!
I used 4" X 6" pieces of scrapbooking paper for these. Cutting from a 12" X 12" sheet of paper leaves no scraps!!! YEA!!!!!!!!
I get a little over zealous when I make things to give away. So I already dropped a batch off at my moms. This is an embellished box for Johns sister filled with the little mint containers.

I just had to add this because it looked so neat and clean!!!! I wish I would have taken a before picture, what a mess!!!!! Last night I cleaned out the cupboards in my laundry room and made room for all the junk that was sitting on the dryer. Lots of junk!!!!!
I had seen the idea of a lamp in the laundry room at other sites in the past. We had an extra lamp we didn't know what to do with and voila' found a spot for it!!!! I found the laundry sign at the Lodi Street Faire last year. Nice touch!!! Grabbed a table runner I had on hand and now I have a nice clean little laundry room!!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend and A Very Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Remember to count your blessings and be generous with the hugs!!!


  1. Hi Tina, always nice when you can make simple but lovely items to give away. I always have good intentions but either run out of time or steam and never seem to get anything done. :/ Hope you are having a great weekend. The days sure are flying by. Best wishes, Tammy

  2. I love the idea of a lamp in the laundryroom! I'm going to do that today. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Those containers turned out really cute! Everyone will love them .. and I really like your interior decorating, you are an inspiration for your crafts and homemaking. Thanks for sharing.
