Quick gifts

It is in the teens this morning. Brrrr!! So it seems appropriate to share some warm-up gift ideas.
I made a bunch (5 dozen) of different items to donate for my daughters preschool craft fair. Quick and easy little goodies that sold like hotcakes. :) Nothing was left and all the money went to the preschool. There were embossed napkins tied with vintage seam binding and glittery fall goodness, 16 oz. to go coffee cups (inside was a coffee sleeve and a packet of instant mocha or latte mix), packets of hot cocoa mix (2 packets of mix per wrap), tea bag packets and some notepads (no photos, sorry). The last photo is just some of the different tags I made to go on the tea and cocoa packets. Just lots of little goodies to share with friends, hostesses or co-workers.

If you want directions on any of these leave me a comment and I can post a quick tutorial/instructions for them. I am working on another post with a new template for more yummy fun. :) Enjoy and stay warm!

Holy Cow!!!!

It has been waaaay too long since my last post. Sorry. Maybe these cute Halloween ideas that I did will make up for it.?.
You can check out these projects and others at These items were used in the Xyron ad in Better Homes and Garden Halloween special issue 2008. :)

Cauldron (Clear paint pail w/lid)
And these were just for fun. The cute candy bar wrapper we did for a make-n-take at a local stamping store, Stamp Attic, for their yearly open house. It is the best find in Anchorage. Betty has everything and more!! Everyone that works there is always so helpful and happy. I just can't get enough of all the goodness they offer.
