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 Design Tuesday - No Tricks, Just TREATS!

Hello everyone! Can you believe that today is OCTOBER 30th!!! Where has the year gone? My kids were just starting school a couple weeks ago and now I'm already seeing Christmas commercials.
But lets not get into that right now - Lets talk CANDY! 
And by that I mean the 70 treats I need to make for my 3 childrens' classmates and 10 teachers too. In order to tackle this HUGE project I decided it would be fun for me to break everything into groups and make something different for each child and their teachers.  I hope you enjoy... 

These Bubblegun treat boxes from My Creative Time are filled with Chocolate and perfect for the teachers. I use Orange Licorice Trendy Twine on organza ribbons and finished the box off with a fun Witch.

Aren't these Ghosts adorable!? They come from a TPC Studio clear stamp value pack I picked up last year after Halloween. I stamped them onto vellum and attached them to a vellum sour cream container I filled with Candy Corn and tied with Midnight Trendy Twine. I finished them off with a ghostly sentiment from My Creative Time's Halloween stamps
MMMmmmmm The Preschool teachers are going to LOVE these.

Now onto the kids treats, it's all about them right?
My girls will be giving out these fun witch hat lollipop holders I found on SVGCuts. To them I added an Orange Licorice Trendy Twine bow, a My Creative Time "BOO" stamp on a tag and embellished the hat with an orange paper flower & rhinestone. I just loved how they turned out.

These treats I believe will be a huge hit with all the 3-5 year olds in my son's preschool class. These Super cool halloween straws are decorated with pumpkins, bats and skulls and I slipped them into pretzel bags and topped them with a funny Peachy Keen faced monster, limited release Grape Limeade Trendy Twine and a My Creative Time Halloween sentiment.

So that's 4 down and only 76 more to go... Who wants to help me??? 
It's ok - I'll get it all done, I've got 3 little helpers who I'm sure would be thrilled to get their little hands on Glue, Rhinestones and Stamps but I draw the line at my Trendy Twine.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog - It's always fun to be designing for Trendy Twine!
Don't forget, Today is the last day to enter the Trendy Twine October  - Boo! To Cute to Spook Challenge so make something fantastic and post it! You could win some yummy twine too.

Have a great Halloween!

Pink Cricut's Master Crafter Challenge!

Hello Crafty Friends! 
I'm excited to share with you my project for Pink Cricuts MASTERCRAFTER CHALLENGE! The challenge was opened up to the first 100 crafters who signed up and paid for the shipping only of a box full of crafty goodness. Well I was up late the night this challenge started and thought I'd try to see if there were any boxes left. To my shock and surprise the challenge closed moments after I signed up. Woohoo! I received my box of goodies about a week later and in it I found:

- Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott 
- DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by DCWV Deals
- Cotton Bag Sponsored by State line Bag Co. 
- 1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by Queen & Co.
- Sentiment stamp sponsored by Pink by Design
- 2 Assorted Buttons

Here's the project I made using the items in the box.

I used Lindy Stamps gangs Rambling Rose glimmer spray and Posy Trendy Twine in addition to the items that were sent to me.

The participants of this challenge were asked to incorporate as much from their goodies as they could in creating their project. Then we are posting the projects on Pink Cricuts blog for  an opportunity to win the amazing prizes. HOWEVER, to win the title MASTER CRAFTER I need your VOTE. Please head on over to Pink Cricuts blog and find my project and if you think it's worthy of the title MASTER CRAFTER then VOTE for me, please :)

The crafter with the most votes will be named Master Crafter and be awarded the first choice of prizes along with a Master Crafter cup and t-shirt. The rest of the prizes will be randomly drawn from all of the entries.
