Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are a common treat at our house.  We all LOVE them and a pan of treats never last long.  While I was making some other delicious, pumpkin recipes.  I thought it would be yummy to add some pumpkin to our Rice Krispie Treats and see how they turn out.  I was SOOOO happy with the outcome.   Seriously, if my husband wasn't a die hard, traditional krispie treat fan, I'd probably never make them without pumpkin again!

A Little Halloween Decorating

I've had so much fun decorating for Halloween this year.  I feel like I've finally made at least one room in our house look like we live here.

I'm happy things are coming together.  I am still on the hunt for the perfect rug and one day our fireplace will get a face lift but for now - YAY Decorations!!

Since there are a lot of things I love in this room I thought I'd include photos with tags of where some of the items were purchased.  If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Do you decorate for Halloween?  It's one of the holidays I find myself adding decorations for every single year.  the colors are so fun!

Halloween Cards

I just love Halloween.  I love the colors and all the fun that goes on this time of year.  I have a deep love of all things Witch.  My mom, sister, and I have always joked about being witches, it makes Halloween even more fun when you can embrace being "Witchy".

Stampin' Up has a great stamp set called Tee-Hee-Hee in their 2014 Holiday Catalog.  I love this stamp set.  Look how cute all the pieces are.

I also used one of the boxes from this post here and created a cute Halloween box.

I also used pieces from their Halloween Banner Accessory Kit to create the cards and the box.  It has some fun pieces.

The Holiday Catalog is only around for a while longer so be sure to check it out.  I can't wait to share some of our projects using the 25 Days Stamp Set.  It's so perfect for all your countdown/advent calendar projects!

Here are some more photos of the projects I made with Tee-Hee-Hee.

Can't wait to get them in the mail to some of my favorite Witches!!

Home made twine dispenser!

I am currently changing my office from one big jumbled mess into usable office and craft room. I'm sure you have all felt the annoyance of not being able to find something you need for a crafting project because its lost in the abyss of the home. For me times it by two, he office was much the same! SO, I have spent the better part of a week organizing and sifting through mountains of "stuff", throwing away unneeded items, consolidating, filing and staring confusedly at item I have no idea what to do with.....

Like twine.... yes I love twine. And I have a ton of it!

So, what to do with it? It's one of those items I know I have certain colors of and can never seem to find when I needed it. So I stared at it and then remembered a pin on Pinterest where someone put it in a mason jar!

I dove into my storage room and found half  a dozen jars, lids, and rings.

The only stumbling block was how to make it into something that not only stores the twine but dispenses it.

The benefit of finally being organized is that I can see what I have. And right in front of me was my Cropodial! A handy little tool that punches holes and installs grommets!

Will it work on metal I asked myself? 
Oh yes, it most certainly does!

All you will need to do is use the large hole punch on the Cropodial to punch a hole. Then insert the grommet into the hole and use the crimp-er on the Cropodial to crimp it in place.

From there all it takes is threading the twine through the hole and placing the twine into the jar and screwing on the lid!
Now you have a handy twine dispenser, It seriously took me like 10 minutes to do 7 of them, so it is a quick easy project you can finish in a short amount of time!

When you serve in Young Women's you're always planning the next big thing.  Yes it's only October, but its time to get on top of next years New Beginnings. This past year we had the best New Beginnings idea that carried on all year long into our activities, camp and ended with the girls graduating from our Personal Progress University for Young Women's in Excellence.
