Or is it!? How's this for a fun party appetizer! Pass the mustard...
|Thumbprint reindeer cards, here.|
|Christmas with baby, here|
|DIY snow globes (secret ingredient is glycerine), here.|
|So sweet! Santa hand ornaments out of salt dough (including recipe), here.|
|A felt Christmas tree for a toddler to decorate over and over again, here.|
Do you think the seniors cared if their turkeys had cobbled feathers?
Naw, they probably enjoyed the cobbled goggle.
|Disclaimer: I have no idea if 24 cotton puffs will fit on Santa's beard.|
You may have to transplant some to his eyebrows. Good luck!
|Food from a Friend's Party for the kiddies: |
Zombie bread (stuffed with spinach dip pizza dough)
Veggie Skeleton (modified by a Dad at the party, can you spot the new addition?)
Our front step & the extent of my decorations but I like it (dollar store reflectors)
A friend's front door in Edmonton (so good, right?)
|A craft I brought to a play date for kids ages 2 - 5 1/2|
Cut egg carton cups into singles
Hole punch 4 holes on each side
Cut pipe cleaners in half
Paint egg carton cups black in advance if you don't want extra mess and to save time
(Spray paint doesn't work, I tried, use acrylic)
(The girls wanted to paint theirs pink and purple anyway, so you could skip this step)
Let kids string legs through spiders
Glue on google eyes, fangs, bows, glitter, whatever
(You can see the girls painted over the eyes, so maybe paint first,
but then they have to dry in between glueing - hairdryer?)
Get the kids to repeat this phrase, "You get what you get and you don't get upset!",
with regard to colour of spider legs, I separated them before hand into sets of 8
Place in the centre of table over little gourds and around a halloween candle/vase filled with candy
|I made these chocolate witch hats last year - ice cream cones dipped in melted chocolate, 2 gummie works stuck inside the hat and stuck to chocolate cookies with one Smartie stuck to the middle of the brim. Cutie-cute, right?|

Yuck, I don't like that.This takes some time but eventually it happens.
Well, you said yuck, now you have to try it and we'll help you. Close your eyes and we'll feed you a bite.
Is it soft or hard?By the time she's done answering the food is usually gone. Has she gagged? Yes. Has she survived to tell about it? Yes. Is this method of feeding a sometimes picky eater working for now? Yes. Good enough for us.
Is it crunchy or chewy?
Is it sweet or sour?
I've eaten a lot of things...but it's usually my pride that's the hardest to swallow.Being a grocery store cashier may not be my pride's 1st choice of employment. But I'm lucky to have choices and maybe I feel sorry for myself, or dumb, just because I can. I'm still chewing on it. I should probably try asking myself a 3 different questions in the meantime to make the task a little easier...
Am I happy?Good luck with whatever is on your plate and know you're not alone. xo
Am I strong?
Am I grateful?
I was recently listening to friends lamenting how life is too short and how they are going to start doing things on their "Bucket List."
I've decided to get started on my "Chuck It List!"
Life is too short to hold onto stuff that just drags you down and I'm just going to CHUCK IT OUT!
So here is my "Chuck It List":
Failed sewing projects-Chuck It!!!
Cut out recipes-never tried-Chuck It!!!
Tight clothes -Chuck It!!!
Empty plant pots -Chuck It!!!
Books I'll never read again -Chuck It!!!
Guilt making memories -Chuck It!!!
What's on your list???

You can have both! A bucket list and a chuck it list.
Set up your declutter kit and begin to "chuck it."
You are not behind! I don't want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?

I'm pretty sure I could use a CHUCK IT list. It sounds like it could free up time and energy in my life. I like the concept of letting go of things that are not working for me. The failed sewing projects, recipes and kids clothes that are ruined/out of style/not favorites may be a good place for me to start. One thing at a time...
If you don't plan your own life
someone else will do it for you.
I never want to be the kind of woman who doesn't get my hair wet.After swimming in the same lake this past weekend with my little family two words came to mind, Amen Sister.
