New tag.

Today I want to share with you a tag I made.  I had a few "new to me" items that I was wanting to use and I wanted to make something other than a card, so I whipped up a tag.

I used some Prima patterned paper for the background, MME stickers, Heidi Swapp borders and I can't remember where the canvas letters cam from.  I love how happy and springy this tag is :)

We had a wonderful weekend!  Lots and lots of time outside, bike riding, family time, it was great!  I hope you had a great weekend too!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have an awesome Monday friends!

Pretty paperclips!!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I want to share with you some pretty paperclips I whipped up. A couple are brads and a couple are adhesive backed embellishments.

I simply hot glued the embellishment to the paper clip and then quickly added a felt flower to the back to add some stability.  These are great for my planner, a card or a scrapbook page!

Do you have big Easter plans this weekend? I think we are actually celebrating tomorrow, they are calling for rain Sunday so we will just do something with the girls on that day :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Candy Sundae

Another week. Can you believe it? Already starting the third week of April.

Last week Abie's friend, who LOVES candy, was having a birthday so we whipped up this fun candy sundae for her.

It was definitely a family project. Mike bought the supplies, I started the project, Landry pulled the ends of the Tootsie rolls straight and Abie glued, and glued and glued rows of Tootsie rolls!

It turned out adorable!!

Pardon the photo bomb from Mike ;). Hope you have an awesome Monday!!

New card.

Hey there!! I meant to get this posted last Friday and I just haven't gotten around to it until now.

I picked up a package of doilies at Michaels about a month ago or so and I've been so excited to try them out!!

Hope you are doing well. Things are good here. Abie had her last tournament Sunday, but we've had something going on every night this week still. How does that happen??

I have a fun project I want to share to. Hopefully I'll get that posted early next week!! Until then, have an awesome day and I appreciate the visit :)

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Good morning and happy hump day!!  This week is going by fast for me and I'm very happy about that!  Abie had her last volleyball practice, for club season, last night and her last tournament is this weekend!  Yay!!!

For our wedding, over 15 years ago, we got a four ingredient cookbook.  Every single recipe in this book has four ingredients.  I've only made a handful of them, but the one I make over and over is the chocolate chip cookie recipe on page I-100.  See, I make it so much I have the page number memorized.

The original recipe calls for:

1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 ounces chocolate chips

These are our favorite chocolate chip cookies and we literally wait by the oven until they come out so we can eat them.  They are so easy and we always have the ingredients on hand.

Over the years I've tried different flavored cake mixes; chocolate, white, etc. but I had the idea Sunday to use a Red Velvet cake mix and white chocolate chips!

1 box Red Velvet cake mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
6 ounces white chocolate chips (12 ounce bag pictured, save the other half bag for another batch!)

Mix cake mix, eggs and oil until moistened.  This works best with the help of a precious six year old :)

Stir in chocolate chips.  This works best with the help of a sweet 12 year old :)

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  I bake mine on parchment paper for easy removal.

I was able to get 28 cookies out of one cake mix.  Enjoy your cookies!!

Do you have a favorite cookie or dessert recipe that you always make for your family?

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!  I'll be back Friday with a new card.
