Merry Christmas

I just want to take a minute and say Thank You to all of my readers! You guys are awesome and it's so fun for me to have this little corner of the world to share all of my projects with you guys! 

I am going to be taking the next week or so to unplug and spend some quality time with my family! I will be back after the first of the year with some fun new projects! Until then I wish all of you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Last Elf on the Shelf Update

Whew....we made it! I must admit there were a couple nights that I was laying in bed and almost asleep when I remembered that I needed to move our Elf but he got moved every night! This was such a great experience for our family and I will cherish the time that I spent talking with the kids about our little Elf! 

I missed a few nights with the pictures but here is what Snowball has been up to lately...

Playing Candyland

Sitting on the Shelf in my Son's room, he especially loved this one!

 He brought us the supplies to make Christmas trees. 

I don't want to know what he was up to when he was caught by the ever faithful Army guys....

And finally here he is with his goodbye letter, I got the idea from Leslie Miller

We can't wait for Snowball to come back again next year!

Felt Comes In Many Colors

And when you combine them all and spend many many many hours and late nights cutting it all up you end up with one FABULOUS Quiet Book! I am not kidding guys I out so many hours into this book and I absolutely love how it turned out! I have been wanting to make a book for a long time now and a couple months ago when the kids starting fighting over our other one I knew it was time! This book is for my daughter who is almost 17 months old, some of the pages are a little advanced for her but seeing as I was going to be putting so much time into this project I wanted it to be something that would last her a long time!

Elf on the Shelf Update

Whew! Snowball has been one busy little Elf these past few days! I wish I had half his energy ;)

He tried to sneak a few of Mom's favorite candy and got himself stuck!

He built a snowman for us to enjoy! 

He tried to sneak a few pieces of the kid's Christmas Countdown's and hid in the stocking when he heard us wake up!

He even toilet papered our tree!!

This has been such a fun tradition to add to our family. Every morning my son comes running in my room (before my alarm even goes off) so excited to tell me what fun adventures Snowball had while we were all asleep. The other day I overheard him and his cute little friends, who also have Elves, chatting about all the crazy things these little guys do. His excitement makes it totally worth it!

100th Post

Wow! I can't believe that this is my 100th post! I love having this little corner of the WWW to share all of my crafty things with people who get me. My husband always says that crafters are there own species....he may be right. I love creating, it is so relaxing and calming to me to sit down and work on a project after a busy day of chasing the kids around! In honor of my 100th post here I thought that it would be really fun to have a giveaway!

One lucky winner will receive:
1 yard of Burlap
2 rolls of Washi Tape
1 pack of blank cards 
& A special surprise

Giveaway will run from 12/12/13-12/18/13. Winner will be notified on 12/19/13

Snowball's Busy Week

Here is a quick recap of what our Elf Snowball has been up to for the past week! 


I knew that this day was coming, Snowball finally decided that it might be a good idea to take a day off and rest!

Snowball's Crazy Antics

Here is what our Elf, Snowball, has been up to the past couple of days. 

We woke up Friday morning to find that he had been playing video games while we were sleeping. 

Saturday morning we found that he had discovered our dry erase markers and had some fun doodling on our pictures. 

Sunday morning we were surprised to walk into the kitchen and see our cupboards covered in bows! 

Here's to hoping that Snowball won't cause too much trouble tonight ;)

After a few days of some crazy stunts I think Snowball deserves a nice long hot bubble bath (and mom does too!)

Tell Me Where You Hid My Eggs

Once again Snowball got into a little mischief last night! I just love the stories that my son comes up with imagining what happened while he was asleep....totally makes it worth it!

And we're off...

To the races. 
Oh that sneaky Snowball! Our little guy was completely fascinated by the fact that Snowball was able to sneak into his room and get his toys out of that noisy drawer without him waking up! He was laughing so hard that Buzz is winning and the fact that Rex was tipped over cause his legs are so short! I love listening to him imagine what was happening last night!

I'm Dreaming Of A Rustic Christmas

This year I wanted my tree to be all neutral colors and rustic. Mission accomplished!!! I absolutely love how it turned out. I had a lot of these things just around the house and made a few things to add to it. 


Well Snowball made his first official trip back to the North Pole to report to the big man. The word on the street is he had some good things to report!

Our 5 year old was a little skeptical about this whole Elf thing but when he woke up and saw that he had indeed returned and was in a different spot he had no questions!!!

Meet Snowball...

Our Family received a special delivery straight from the North Pole this morning......

Our very own Elf, Snowball. This is our first year with an Elf and my kids were pretty excited about it!! We made sure to quickly place him in the tree after we all read the book together, we did not want him to lose his magic!
