Neighbor Christmas Gift Idea

We love to share with our neighbors and friends at Christmas time by giving them a gift.  Even better, is to make it homemade!  This year, I wanted to make an Eggnog Quick Bread, but soon realized that this would require a lot of Eggnog for the ingredients.   I decided to try this Cinnamon Bread Recipe and loved the taste and texture of it!  It turned out wonderfully (as long as you don’t overbake it!) and made a nice large batch.  

I love my mini loaf pans!  They are a must have for making quick breads.  My quick never get fully cooked in regular size pans, but the mini pans really work great!  You can get some on Amazon HERE.

This summer, I found a Pampered Chef Stoneware loaf pan at a rummage sale for $3.   Was a little worried about getting them out of the stone for sticky breads, especially in this case.  They came out wonderfully, so now I’m pretty excited about this stone pan!
I highly recommend contacting your local Pampered Chef lady to get one of these, or shop around at thrift stores and rummage sales to get one!

Here’s how they turned out once I wrapped them up! 
I used clear treat bags taped shut, to wrap them up with a piece of ribbon around it.  Added a tag with what it was and who it was from - and it’s ready to gift!  Yummy too!

A Great Deal

This is so exciting!  What a great deal and it’s only available on my Website and gives you everything that you will need to finish this cute project for just under $35!  The Hexagon board and chalk paste colors aren’t even available to Designers. 

I’ve been loving how versitile the Chalk Couture transfers and chalk paint are!  Here are just a few of the projects I’ve been working on to sell at craft fairs this year!  Check out some of them here:

Each project takes just a few minutes to make and turns out just beautiful!  Please let me know if you have any questions or need help deciding what to start with first.

Craft Fair

I’ve spent the last two months getting ready for a craft fair.  My 14yo son plans to go to Japan on a 4-H exchange trip in 2 years, and one way we plan to raise funds is by having a booth in our local craft fair.  For two months my kitchen table has been central to my crafting and an explosion of glitter!  Here are some of my crafts:
While crafting and looking all over Pinterest, I found a new way to screen print my projects.  I’m pretty excited about it - you can check it out HERE.  It truly makes all my projects professional looking as well as easy and fun to make!  Let me know if you have questions.

I was able to use cedar tongue and groove ends that were leftover from our addition project.  More on that soon.
I made 18 little gnomes!  I even got around to making a YouTube video on how to make them!  Check it out and give me feedback, please.

This is my favorite transfer that I have.  If  you’d like more more information about these transfers check out my Website here.I made two of these boards, but neither of the them sold.  I’m going to have to get it listed on Etsy or Facebook to sell them.  None of my Farm transfers went either.  More of my craft fair items coming soon, so stay tuned!
