Happy St. Patrick's Day

Well I was browsing the internet for some St. Patrick's Day inspiration and came across some cute little leprechaun pillow boxes! I immediately started digging through my paper and punches for the supplies. I only had to make 12 of these boxes for my daughter's Tiny Tots class but they came together so quickly that I made a few extra for some family members. I picked up some gold foil covered chocolate coins to fill these cute little boxes with and voila! :-)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you remembered to wear green today! ;-) Happy St. Patrick's day!!

Happy Girl's Day

Here are some super quick and simple Girl's Day gifts I put together today (yes last minute) for my kid's teachers and a few family members. I actually baked the chi chi dango (mochi) with my kids yesterday and had them help me cut it up and roll it in the katakuriko (potato starch) last night. It was definitely a fun and messy evening in our house last night. And on top of that, my kids LOVE chi chi dango so it was quite a challenge getting through the process without them trying to sneak some pieces into their mouths!! :-)

Anyways, this morning I decided to try to dress up the containers that I placed some of the chi chi dango in. I saw this bookmark on SCS and thought it would be the perfect (and quick) little "something" to add to these containers. They came together really fast and surprisingly I had all of the supplies I needed to put these girls together.
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you are enjoying your Girl's Day!!

Housewarming Card

Here is the housewarming card that went along with the Home Made box that I made for my husband. Super quick and easy card to throw together...and it gave me the opportunity to ink up a stamp set that I had never used before...gotta love that!!

Home Made Box

My DH came home from work one day early last week and let me know that he needed a housewarming gift by the end of the week. Well I instantly thought about the haunted houses that Mama made for Halloween! I went to order the template and then found out that the coordinating stamp set for it would not reach me in time for the housewarming party at the end of the week! Well, luckily for me Mama is such a sweet and generous person...she let me borrow her stamp set so that I could finish putting together this little house! I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out since I was rushing to put it all together but my DH was happy with it which was the main thing for me! Thanks again so much Mama for lending me your stamp set...I truly appreciate it! :-)
