Blog Candy for a Cause

Everyone knows my son was a 7 week preemie who spent 15 of the longest days of our lives in the NICU, which lead me to start Dominic's Donation Project...Pages for Preemies. Well, as I was blog surfing today, I came across this blog, which is offering blog candy for sending cards to this family. Their beautiful baby girl was born on December 1st with complications and is spending time in the NICU.

Please, send this family a card. Not because you will be entered into the blog candy drawing, but because it's something you CAN and WANT to do. I know the family will appreciate this. They need all the support they can get right now.

Teacher gifts

This year, I decided I needed to scale back on the number of cards I make for our 'past' teachers. Time has run out on me this year unfortunately. Heck, with 4 kids, I'm finding time slips away now faster than ever. So, I decided to get crafty! Past teachers will still get gifts, just on a smaller scale.

First, I took a 4 ounce pop top can of fruit I use for the girls lunches and opened the can from the BOTTOM using a can opener.

Then, after draining the can and washing it, I filled it with Rolos and Kisses.

I used Liquid Glass to seal the bottom back to the can.

Cut a strip of PP to replace the label.

Decorate and voila! You have a cute little can of chocolate...and a surprise for the teacher when she pops the lid open!

3D Design Challenge Prize

Do you remember the little coupon booklet I made for the 3D Design Challenge blog contest? Well...I won...and didn't even know I got a prize to go along with it. Imagine my surprise when this GORGEOUS bag showed up on my door step! This bag is made from Daily Window Products. Now, as soon as Pam first mentioned Daily Window Products on her blog, way back when, I fell in love with these bags!!! And, just recently, my GOOD friend Tonya won a bag too. I have to admit, I was totally jealous and called her a HAG for it. ROFL! While she's still a HAG for many other reasons, I no longer need to be jealous about her bag! ROFLMAO!!!! ;0)

Wanna know something else? The inside of my bag is GREEN!!! It's my all time favorite color. I am just totally excited!!! It made my day!!!!!
