ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Decking the Halls~Part 1

Snowmen and Snowflakes!

These are the first of many decorations going up in my home this week. I love to see all the snowmen and snowflakes sparkle from the kitchen as I cook.

I unpacked a few more boxes and found more snowmen and blue glass ornaments. I guess I jumped the gun on posting a picture. :)

Another Steal!

K&Company Stickers

I had to run out to the grocery store this morning for a few Thanksgiving ingredients and I happened to find these stickers on a random shelf. I picked them up and asked an employee how much they were. Each of these packages rang up for $2.99 and each one had 3 sets of stickers in them. So the STEAL is that these dimensional stickers were under a dollar each and will look amazing on all the Christmas cards I'll be making next weekend!!!

Santas that sparkle

Another Thanksgiving Treat Basket!

Christmas Centerpieces

Large Christmas Treat Baskets

On December 3rd, the PTG at my daughters school will be hosting a luncheon for the faculty and staff. I thought these treat baskets would make a fun addition to the center of the tables.

The project was created by The Cricut Chick and a video tutorial can be found HERE.

Hero Cards!

Happy Veterans Day!

For all the Heroes serving now and for all those who gave their lives so that we may have Freedom especially my Dad who served in Vietnam and my Great Grandfather who served in WWII.

I made these cards this morning for the teachers at my daughters school. Everyone in the school is writing Hero letters for Operation Write Home. The school is also having a prayer service today and Tomorrow everyone can wear Jeans and the School's spirit shirt if they make a donation to OWH.

Christmas Treat Basket

Mini basket

I was inspired by yesterdays project and decided to make another treat basket but in a smaller size. Christmas will be here before we know it and it's good to start early on all those holiday gifts.

Thanksgiving Gift idea

Treat Basket

The Cricut Chick has this project listed on her Facebook photo wall which you can see here. I loved the idea and thought it would be really fun to make for Thanksgiving; however, this would be a fun project for any holiday or celebration.

Step 1: Score a 12"x12" piece of cardstock at 4" and 8" on each side. Score the outside corners on the diagonal. Cut 3 3/4" square pieces of patter paper for each section and cut diagonally for each corner. Add embellishments on the 4 solid squares.

Step 2: Punch holes 1/2" from the corner and hammer in a grommet.

Step 3: Run elastic trough the grommets and fasten with a knot.
Step 4: Tie 12 - 7" ribbons around the elastic in the larger open spaces only.
Step 5: Fill with treats and give as a gift or set out for the family to enjoy.

Fall Treat Bags

Muffins and the Recipe

I wanted to give a friend a few of the pumpkin muffins I made over the weekend and thought this was a fun way to display them. On the opposite side of the bag topper is the muffin recipe.
