Back To School Teacher Gifts - Cookies in a pencil box

My daughter took these to her teachers this week as a welcome back gift. Decided to bake up some sugar cookies and added them to a pencil box :)

I used my silhouette machine to cut out vinyl to add to the outside of the pencil boxes that I picked up at my local store that sells school supplies. They fit perfectly.  She was so excited to take them to school.

If you aren’t into decorating cookies you can send in chocolate chip cookies or any type of cookies you would like to bake into a pencil box. :)

Baby Shower Gifts and Custom Bags

Baby Shower Gifts and Custom Bags

I love to embroider anything that doesn’t move!!  When I was invited to one of my girlfriend’s baby shower for her new little ones– I had to add their names to these adorable bear towels. :)  CUTE CUTE!!!  Easy gift but personalized makes it extra special.

Baby Shower Gifts and Custom Bags

If you haven’t realized from my blog already I love my silhouette machine!! I use it for so many projects. One shower I attended the theme was “OVER THE MOON” and I decided to cut out a moon and stars to glue on to a bag to match the theme.  I love how it turned out!!

Baby Shower Gifts and Custom Bags

This bag the shower didn’t particularly have a theme other than it was for a cute little baby girl on the way.  I love to pick up thee Kraft bags at the dollar tree. You get 2 for a dollar. I dressed it up with pink and white vinyl. :)  Easy peasy and personalized by me :)  I love my silhouette machine!!







Cow Appreciation Day – July 14, 2015

Cow Appreciation Day - July 14, 2015

Did you know every year Chick-Fil-A has a cow appreciation day?  This is the one day my family goes out, dresses up and enjoys a yummy meal at Chick-Fil-A. It is awesome. We go around 1130am to beat the lunch rush because it is such a popular day. We get a yummy free meal.  We get creative and pin on cow spots, and tape our noses onto our glasses and have a blast as a family!

Emoji Sugar Cookies

Emoji Sugar Cookies

I am SOOO addicted to emojis on my iphone . I use them ALLL THE TIME. Even in my blogging I have emoticons in them :)

I was hosting a party at my home. No real theme per say but all my girlfriends love to text and social media and I knew these cookies would be a hit. And they were. Everyone enjoyed them and even the POOP emoji was a hit.

Emoji Sugar Cookies

I was asked if I really owned a POOP emoji cutter. The answer is no– however I do own a CUPCAKE cutter- and using that cutter I was able to create that emoji easily in sugar cookie form.

Emoji Sugar Cookies

My son did this photo on his phone. He as absolutely laughing over them. He had to impose the actual emoji on my cookie before I got around to decorating.

This was one of my favorite creations in cookies. Definitely a conversation starter :) How many people do you know serve poop cookies at their parties….THIS GAL DID!
