Baby Announcements !

Well I was not planning on making my birth announcements until after the baby arrived but it was a slow weekend. I had a few ideas of designs I wanted to do but these are what I decided on, and I am in love with them!

I tested out several different papers and colors, more because I needed to make a lot more than what two sheets of paper would make.
I am pretty happy with how all of them turned out but the bird ones are my favorite.

Last year this Pacific point blue paper was really hard for me to use, I didn't like the way anything I made turned out with it but I am now completely in love with it her with the Kiwi Kiss and the So Saffron.

When I bought this paper I never thought even how it would make a boy card but I am now complete in love with them!

Carmel Popcorn balls

Today Zekaia was family night treat and he asked for colored popcorn. Well I forgot to buy some marshmellows yesterday at the store so I asked him if carmel ones would be okay. To which he agreed. They turned out great so I thought I would share the recipe. They were supper easy and I had them made in about 20 minutes. Hope you enjoy them!!
{Vanilla Caramel Popcorn Pops}
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla
Combine all ingredients (except apple vanilla) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Once boiling, cook for 2 1/2 minutes (just until soft-ball stage). Remove from heat, add vanilla. Allow to cool slightly. Pour caramel over 6-8 cups of fresh popped popcorn. When caramel is poured over popcorn, stir until well coated, pack into popcorn balls.

Small Christmas cards and gift box

Well I wanted to make some little cards that I could give aways this Christmas season to people in the area I live in. Something small since there are a lot of people I don't really know very well. These little cards are 3x3 and have a cute little box to be stored in. I will give them away as a set of 11, 10 cards and one tote. Then they have quick thank you's to send out themselves.

Here I have only uploaded a few of the little cards that I have made. The cards match the box they will be given in.

This first box is before I have taped it all together since this one is being sent in the mail. Amanda if you read this this one is for you. I figure you can put it together once you get it.

Here is the first box I made all put together!

I'm so Lucky
