Snickers Bar Snowmen

Take a Snickers Candy Bar, wrap it with white paper stamped with "snowman" features, add yarn for a scarf, cut a finger from mitten and glue to the top, and finish with a pom pom. The viola! You have a Snickers Car Snowman!

Jake's Flea Market, Rt 100 Barto, PA, is having Holiday Craft Show (inside the New Treasure Barn) this Sunday, November 16th 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. My friend Jean and I will be there with paper crafts. I'll be selling these snowmen and several other projects I've been creating.

Joyful Stars November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars November Blog Hop! If you've come from Stephanie's blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all! 

Fall is my favorite season and my dad's love of the Thanksgiving holiday has rubbed off on the entire family. So today I want to share two projects I've created to celebrate the season.  My first project features Close To My Heart's Base and Bling line.

 The key to a grateful heart is love. 

My next project is a wreath featuring the Pathfinding Paper Packet. I did use some retired items in my stash to embellish it. 

These two items and several more things I made this weekend are for an upcoming craft fair at Jake's Flea Market in Barto, PA on Sunday, November 16. If you are local stop by between 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM! Thanks for visiting my blog and hopping with all of us this month.

Your next stop is Nickie's blog

Just in case you get lost or experience a technical difficulty, you might want to keep Joyce's blog open in a separate tab as she has a full list of participants!

Joyful Stars October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars October Blog Hop! Many of you are hopping form Stephanie's blog, and some of you may have started with this blog post. Either way this hop is a circle so just continue hopping along until you get back to my blog. That way you see all of the fabulous projects for this month. 

I love paper crafting, which makes sense since I'm a Close To My Heart Consultant! But I do this as a hobby. I have a full time teaching job and that always has me busy with other things at this time of the year. So I understand when someone tells me they'd like to do this hobby, but just don't have the time. In Close To My Heart's 2014 Annual Inspirations book a new line of items debuted called Cut Above™.  I love that these items are already precut and ready to assemble with some optional stamping. 

The Halloween Treat bag kit (retail $14.95) makes 10 bags. If you purchase circular candy you can adorn them with the stickers in the kit. The artwork from Annual Inspirations also uses the stamp set Sweet Salutations

I switched it up for my project. The circle stickers were used to close the bags instead of the stamped "Sweet Treats" sentiment. That way I used just what was included in the kit, a stapler, and of course the candy! Faster. Simpler. Easier. Anyone can put together these treat bags in minutes, and I'm sure you'll receive lots of compliments about them!
