Pill Box Spices

In honor of the camping trip the hubs and I are taking this summer I did a mini craft project. While camping we are planning on shopping at local farmers markets and doing most of our cooking on the fire, so we wanted to make sure we brought some necessary spices. And rather than carry full spice containers around with us, I thought a pill box might work nicely! Sorry there's no before pics, but it basically looked like a generic pill box, except it's pink!

Cupcake Pops!

These were so much fun to make, I got the idea from Bakerella. To get the cupcake shape I used a 1/2 tbsp. for the top and then just kinda smushed (is that a word, spell-check thinks not) the bottom around until it looked right. We shared some with our Sunday school class and I took the rest with me to work!

old made new and red, white, and blue

Here's a few more little projects that I've been working on....

Align Center
Old - found at an antique shop (thanks to my SIL for spotting it!)

In the process of becoming new! I covered it with aquarium rocks (don't worry, I made sure Skittle, our fish, had plenty of rocks first!)

A little patriotic project for July

And here's what our mantle looks like right now, it still need a little something (just not sure what that is yet) but it looks much better than it did. And now you can see my finished paper roll project and the finished 'E'. I haven't decided if I'm going to leave the 'E' sitting there, or if I'm going to hang it. Any thoughts? Hopefully tomorrow I'll post some more pictures of some others things we've been working on around the house!

As promised!

So I actually did this project with my mom-in-law quite a while ago, but better late than never right! I got the idea of paper roll (toilet paper or paper towel rolls) from Homemade Mamas and Growing Up Creative. So here it is!
I'll show off the finished project and where it's hanging later this week!

I know...I'm a bad blogger.....

But I promise that is going to change starting next week! So in the mean time, while I'm getting myself organized, here's a pictures of Delaina (my littlest sis) to put a smile on your face, she's so goofy!
