I'm pretty blessed. Life seems to keep sending crazy and hard our way and God has blessed me with friends who care deeply. They act on things that seems small to them but are huge to me. HUGE.

Even though Christmas is over, gift giving doesn't need to stop. I've got some cute hot cocoa treats that I made for some friends. We have a beautiful snow covered city, so these should come in handy! First I filled up a little cello bag with the hot cocoa and marshmallows. The peppermint spoons didn't work well in the bag with those so I snagged some pretzel cello bags and that worked perfectly for them. These tags use the Hot... Continue reading

'Tis the season for tags! Yes... it is. I love having them on hand for quick gifts too. MFT is sharing the fun way to create tags with Die-namics today.

First I trimmed... Continue reading

I thought of this friend and how I wanted some cheer to come her way... so I went with happy feeling colors. I used... Continue reading
