Monday, August 15, 2016 Crop Fun!

From left to Right:  Kareen, Leone, Debbie, Carol, Judy
Great fun at Craft D Crop Day

Yesterday was my first crop day since my 
move to Port Dover.  

You might be wondering what you do
at a crop day.  You can bring 
any craft projects that you want
to work un.  Some of the ladies
were scrapbooking, some 
were making cards and Judy was 
working on a fall wreath and banner.  
I was working on a card kit the Happy Day
card kit that is available in the 
catalogue.  

Lunch and Dinner was served,    
the make n take was a card, 
and we had a few visitors.  
We shared tons of laughs
and great tips.

Kareen won the door prize.

The next all day crop
is Sunday, September 25, 2016

Friday, August 12, 2016 Save the Date cards finished


Woohoo!  The Save the Date cards are complete

We started these cards months ago.  From design
to cutting everything to assembly to finally done.

Everyone in the family helped.
Well, someitmes the family was a little
more distracting than helpful...

We made 150 cards and it was
actually quality family time.

Now it's time to design the wedding
invitations....

Thanks for visiting today!

Thursday, August 11, 2016 Family Recipe Binder Pizzas


Home made individual pizzas.  

Instead of paper crafting, I had fun 
crafting with pizza dough. 

I had a lot of fun learning how to roll out the 
dough.  I tried spinning it in the air but I can't
say I was successful at that.  The best tip I learned
was rolling it out on parchment paper and then
cooking it on the parchment paper on the stone.
Easy to roll, less mess, and it slides right off
the parchment onto the plate.  

Pampered Chef sells the individual stone pans.
They are the perfect size.  Not too small and not too
big.  Just right.

This is going to be a new weekly tradition in 
our home.  Everyone gets their own pizza so
they get to choose their toppings.
How many pizza's do you think I will make 
before I figure out how to toss and spin the dough
 in the air?

Wednesday, August 10, 2016 - Wacky Wednesday

Laryssa & Devin Wedding Box
Back to working on my Daughter's Wedding

Laryssa and I were working on it one day a week
but with the move recently the box got put aside.  

Today it's time to get busy again and start working
one day a week on it again. 


Inside the Box

Hopefully we get these cards finished today and I will be
able to show you a completed card next Wednesday.  
You are probably wondering if she has
picked her dress yet.  
No, not yet.  When we go shopping we
get distracted by other things in the 
store.  Check out this picture of 
my Mom trying on funny hats.  

My mom makes us laugh!
I love hats but she doesn't. Laryssa reassured
her that she doesn't have to wear a hat to
her wedding.

Thanks for visiting today!

Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - Cute boxes

Adorable little containers that came in
last month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  
I saved the stamp set that came in
the July kit to use another day.  
I grabbed one of my retired
stamp sets because I love the
saying.  I filled the containers
with little hershey chocolate bars.

There is only a couple of days left
to make sure you get this months kit.  

The stamp set pictured above will be in 
the August Paper Pumpkin kit!  

Thanks for visiting today!
