A long time coming...

I hope you will excuse my absence from the crafting and blogging world for a little while. I just completed a very big project and will be taking some time to admire my work ;-D

This little man finally joined us on October 21st, 5 days after expected. 

Our other little man is not so sure what he thinks yet, but he's doing well with the transition so far.

Boo Wreath

I came across this Halloween wreath by Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous a while back on Pinterest and really liked it. It was actually one of the projects for our little church group craft club last month, but I happened to be out of town that day and I’m just now getting around to finishing it.
Let me tell you - cutting burlap, not my favorite. It is super messy! I did appreciate the extra technique Linda gave, made it much easier to cut straight lines.
So as usually I put my own little spin on this project.
I used smaller letters – just because- no reason really. I painted them white and then I found some sparkly paint at Joann’s. I originally wanted to cover the letters in orange glitter, but due to some super cute crafts floating around the blogosphere involving orange glitter, they were all sold out.

Then I used the rest of the foam stickers and embellished it.
Oh yeah, and I used this handy tip for the wreath form. It cost less than a $1! Love it!

Halloween Tree

So I’m really getting my money’s worth out of this project. I think it’s such an easy way to decorate and it doesn’t need much. I took this Easter Tree and turned it into this Fall Tree, now I’ve updated it for Halloween. I got these little foam stickers at Joann’s for a couple dollars, maybe $2 a pack.

All I did was stick them back to back with a little loop of ribbon in between.

Not All Vitamins Are Created Equal

I was doing so good at posting regularly there for a while and then September evaporated into October. Seriously where did it go? 
These last couple weeks have been chaotic, stressful, and some what discouraging for me. We’ve had so much going on-I blame myself mostly- I’ve been trying to tie up loose ends before the baby comes. On top of that I had some ‘issues’ come up in this pregnancy that I didn’t have with our son. Luckily my doctor is really great and it doesn’t look like a big deal, but it sure had me worried for a bit.
Nothing like supporting my husband in his first marathon and watching General Conference to get me out of my funk. Now I really want to share with you one of Shaklee’s amazing products and I’ll have a craft for you coming soon!  

 Right now you can get a free Shaklee Lifetime Membership (a $19.95 value) and additional 15% savings on all future purchases with the purchase of Shaklee Vitalizer.  


What is Vitalizer

It is the most advanced multinutrient supplement on the market. With over 80 bio-optimized nutrients that are specifically designed to break down in the right place to enhance absorption. Backed by 55 years of scientific research, a first-of-its-kind Landmark Study, 12 clinical trials, and formulas that target specific health needs of men, women, and active adults. It provides the best nutritional science in one convenient daily serving and there’s a Vitalizer that’s right for everyone.

In addition to the amazing science behind Vitalizer, it is also hands down the best overall value for a complete multinutrient of this kind. Consider the following price comparison done by Doug Smith (sorry no link, I received this information in an email.)
