Hershey nugget treats
Monday, December 22, 2014
Last year I made quite a bit of different goodies to take with me to a Holliday craft fair. Although I sold an ok amount, it was probably my 1st and only time I'll ever do one. It's just too much work and I was really stressed out the whole time with thinking I wouldn't get things done on time. I made some super cute Tic Tac holders using the Fancy Topper Die from Jaded Blossom and they matched perfectly with the nugget holders I made.

I've been very busy and super christmas happy ;). I have been working on a couple of Xmas baskets for my co workers and my sons kindergarden teachers.
I made two of each design to include in the baskets. These were so easy and fun to put together.
The inside is a gusset bag from Jaded Blossom and hershey kisses decorated with stamps from the Merry and Bright stamp set also from Jaded Blossom and pink shredded paper to match :)
I love how the back turned out. I used Mini tag dies 2, guess from where? Lol. Well of course Jaded Blossom. And the sentiment is also from the Merry and Bright stamp set. I used some pink twine and a sheer pink ribbon bow to hold the tag.
This is how my baskets turned out. ( I'll do a post soon on the rest of the items I made for these baskets).
I added a lotion, body wash, and a mist from Bath and Body Works. I made two of these for his teachers.
I made two of these for my co workers. They turned out pretty cute I think :)

I was so excited when my son started Kindergarden a few months ago for 2 reasons. The first is the obvious, he's getting so big and learning so much but the second reason... Well lets just say, I've planned out treats for every holiday and special occasion for all his little class mates for the next couple of years lol.
I made 30 little treats for the kids in his class. Lets just say, I've been working my butt off these past couple of weeks. ;)
They were pretty easy to put together (after all the paper piecings of course)
I made a few last year for a Christmas Craft Fair and they were a big hit so I thought I would make them again but without the extra work of wrapping nuggets :)

I made some super cute turkey treats for my son's kindergarden teachers last night. Today was his last day of school and he's officially on break for thanksgiving. Man, I wish I had a whole week off of work ;)

My husband's grandmother celebrated her 84th birthday party this weekend. All her family put together this beautiful surprise birthday party and everyone helped with something. My assigned task was ofcourse my cakepops so since their was no specific theme I worked with the color combo of the party, purple And white.
They were a big hit. I filled my stand which holds 48 and they literally vanished within 30mins. Lol. I'm glad everyone enjoyed them but I wish it would have lasted a little longer. Atleast enough for people to actually see them. :/ lol

My son's kindergarten class is working on their family tree projects. Even though he is only 5 years old, he helped quite a big (mostly with glueing). I used my cricut for all my cutouts and used various different cartridges. I used create a critter. Create a critter 2, walk in my garden, and Simply charmed.

I made some treats for my son's kindergarten class to go along with the teachers favor I just did this week. Very simple but I live how they turned out.
I found these awesome candy blood and fangs at my local Wincos. They fit perfectly inside the Jaded Blossom's 4x4 bags. I didn't want to add too much embellishments or do a whole lot of work since its for 5 year olds. All they care about is the candy inside but my son seems to love them. :) I made a total of 30. 15 girls and 15 boys.
*Jaded Blossom: 4x4 bags, Fancy topper die, mini tag dies 2, Vampire and zombies, oh my stamp set.
*Svg Cutting Files: Kawaii nerdy Halloween
I finally got around to using my free Groot file that I received from SVG Cutting Files for participating in a monthly challenge recently. Just in time too. My nephews birthday is tonight and I want to give him a little something along with his birthday present. We took him with us to watch Guardians of the Galaxy when it first came out and he was instantly hooked, especially with Groot. This little guy is such a cutie and he's perfect for my nephew. Can't wait until he sees it.
Standard gable box and Groot files are from SVG Cutting Files.
The sentiment is from the Super Hero stamp set from Jaded Blossom along with the mini tag dies 2 also from JB

My son Alexander, is in kindergarten and both of his teachers are the sweetest ladies. As a token of appreciation, I made them both theses little goodies for Halloween.
The inside treats are little pumpkin candies I found at Wincos.
The little treat box is a design a found on the silhouette online store. The little bear is also a design from the silhouette online store. I just added some stickles to the hat and pumpkin and made the little nose glossy. The "wooden sign" is from jaded blossom from the Fall die set and the sentiment is from the Pick your poison set. I only used the "Halloween" portion and chose to not use the word "happy" on it so that it would fit inside the sign.

I worked on a few Yo Gabba Gabba cake pops today. I have made them in the past when I first started making cake pops and I'm really proud of how much I have improved over time.
These are the ones from today:
These are the ones I made 3 years ago:
I've come along way. Lol

*The little tag and sentiment are from Jaded Blossom from the mini tag dies 2 and the Beep Beep set.
