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.

Trendy Twine Guest Designer

HELLO and Happy New Years Eve Eve! I'm excited to share with you a project I made for Trendy Twine. When they asked me to be a guest designer I was so excited and I accepted immediately!!! I absolutely LOVE this twine and the colors that are available are fun and unique.

With New Years right around the corner, I decided to make some party poppers. And since I am expecting my own baby new year I decided to use the Blue Berry and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy twine for a theme of Pink and Blue. My family will have fun opening up these poppers to find Happy New Year necklaces and Hershey Kisses for a midnight treat.

For the pink popper I used a half of a toilet paper roll, pink shimmer tissue paper, Blue Berry twine, My Creative Time's: fancy label die and the "Cheers" stamp from the Small Talk stamp set, Peachy Keen's New Years Faces stamp and Stickles.

For the blue popper I used a half of a toilet paper roll, blue glitter tissue paper, Strawberry Cupcake twine, My Creative Time's: fancy label die and the "Happy New Year" stamp from the Small Talk stamp set, Peachy Keen stamps and Stickles. 

I hope you enjoyed my New Years project today. Please stop by Trendy Twines blog to see all the amazing projects they have there. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Snowman Christmas Tree

I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest to make this adorable snowman tree. Isn't he just the cutest thing?

He stands 3 feet tall and is made from a prelite white tree, glass ornaments filled by my Children with curled black cardstock paper make his buttons, Glittered branches for his arms, 2 My Creative Time Stitched Lollippop holders make his bow tie and the cutest snowman head my Mother in Law found at Big Lots.

I love his smile!

This is a close up of the bow tie I made from 2 My Creative Time Stitched Lollipop holder dies. I may add white stitching to it but I couldn't wait to see it on and share it with all of you! I hope you love my tree as much as we do. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very Merry Day!

Advent Activity Calendar

Welcome to the First day of December and the official start to the Holidays, at least for my family! 
This year to kick off the season I decided to make an advent calendar; however, since I have 3 children and I didn't want them fighting over the sweet treat for each day, I made our calendar an activity based project. I found a few examples on Pinterest and then came up with the following list of things to do with the kiddos.

List of Festive Family Activities:

Decorate for Christmas 
Write a letter to Santa 
Take a Family Christmas picture 
Read a Christmas Story at bedtime 
Do something nice for a sibling 
Make paper snowflakes 
Sing Christmas songs all day 
Donate toy you don’t play with anymore 
Make a craft with Mom 
Cook dinner together as a family 
Family Christmas movie night 
Make snowman soup 
Make Christmas cards for your Grandparents 
Eat Dessert first at dinnertime 
Spread holiday cheer to friends 
Make a gift for someone special 
Bake and Decorate cookies 
Color Christmas pictures 
Have a campout by the Christmas tree 
Have lunch somewhere special 
See some snow with family 
Drive around and look at Holiday lights 
Sing and dance to Christmas Carols 
Wear new Christmas pajamas to bed 
Spend the day with family, Merry Christmas!!

I then made 25 envelopes, matting them and adding a date label.

I then made a box to hold all the envelopes and decorated it with coordinating supplies.

The daily cards followed next with their own matting but these are not dated so they can be mixed up or change over the years if need be. 

I am so very happy with how this project turned out. It's going to be fun to see how the kids react to the daily activities we have planned. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
