Personalized Treat Plates

We made holiday treats to deliver to friends and neighbors, but first I personalized the plates using glass etching.  And in the process, I made one for me, too :)

Maybe Christmas Doesn't Come from a Store Canvas

I made this for my awesome friend that has Dr. Seuss in her classroom.  My kids loved it so much, I made another one for our home.

Rudolph Suckers

My kindergartener wanted to make something for all of his classmates for Christmas.  So we looked on Pinterest for ideas and really liked this one. His classmates loved them.  Then my second grader wanted some for his class, so we made some for his class, too.  One more way to teach my kids the joy of giving and thinking of others. 


**I found this cute idea and cut file from Sarah Hamer Designs  We changed the eyes to wiggly eyes and sized it down to cut on an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cardstock and added a mouth and eyebrows just for fun. 

Yoda Christmas Shirt

One of my boys is loving Star Wars right now, so I made this shirt for him.

So this was something I made for my kiddos lunchboxes.  They were pleasantly surprised.  :) 

Chocolate pudding cups.  Wiggly eyes.  Red pom pom.  Antlers cut on my silhouette.  Low temp hot glue.

Santa Cookie Plate and Milk Jar

I found this cute plate at Target with large polka dot trim, so I added some vinyl from a file from the Sil store.  Found a cute milk jar and added some vinyl to that for a fun set.

Now if only they would do these few things for me....

Pumpkin Carving

Helping five kids carve pumpkins can be quite the task, but this year was a little easier.  I let the kids pick what they wanted and then I cut the template out.  I attached the cutout using pins and let the kids trace and color in the design.  Then John helped them cut each one out.  (John also found an awesome pumpkin gutting tool that saved time and mess cleaning the pumpkins out!)

2nd Grade Party

For this party we had 4 games and divided the kids into 4 groups and rotated them through.  We finished with donuts and chocolate milk and a Halloween Story.

 ** If I were to do this again I'd have 1 or 2 more games so that the groups were smaller for the build a pumpkin, that one took a while for a group of 6 and by then the other games ran too long, but the kids seemed to have fun regardless. 


Witch Hat Ring Toss:
 Bean Bag Toss:
                                                                  With Prizes inside
 Roll a Jack-O-Lantern:
The first one to build their pumpkin won.  Then they all finished off their pumpkins and had a cute decoration to take home. 
Pumpkin Bowling:

Jack-O-Lantern Jar

I found this jar and loved how it had ridges like a pumpkin, so I added some vinyl for a face and filled it with some orange gold fish.

Jack-O-Lantern Mugs

My kiddos love hot chocolate and I saw these plain orange mugs and decided to "jack them up" with some vinyl.  Bring on the crisp, cold fall temperatures!

Soccer Jerseys

So I took our red and white jerseys we bought from parks and rec and added some htv.  It made it easy to pick out my kids at the soccer fields among all the other red and white jerseys. 

The boys each chose a number and we used white on red and black on white...pretty simple.  

Kyla wanted something with a little more pizzazz.   She chose neon pink and a sparkle glitter (pictures don't do either of these justice) and wanted "Fabulous" on them, so I told her we should use the number "1" then :)

Monogrammed Luggage

This summer I added my monogram to my luggage with htv.  It held up with all of our summer travels and still looks great...super happy with it!

Lagoon Shirts

We did a fun family trip that had 2 days scheduled for Lagoon, so of course I made matching shirts for our whole family.

Day 1: We all wore neon yellow: 

Day 2: Boys all wore blue, Girls wore pink.  Kyla voted for shirts with pockets, so I just added a matching carousel horse.

Baseball Coach Gift

We put together a small thank you for the coach and the assistant coaches for the great season and all their time and energy they gave the team.  It wasn't much, but I thought it would still teach my son to recognize their efforts and had him make cards for each of them.

Baseball Gear

Summer is winding down, but I wanted to get caught up on a little blogging, so I'm going to start with projects I did find time for over the summer.  We had fun watching our son play baseball.  He got a shirt and hat with the league--I added some personalization--last name on the back of his shirt and his initials on his hat brim (made finding his hat a breeze when all the team threw hats on the ground to trade for helmets)

And I personalized his helmets and his bat.
