Random Projects

I think I may actually get a chance to scrapbook tomorrow!  My husband said he would watch the boys while I had some "me" time, but they both mentioned about wanting to play in the snow tomorrow and that means hot chocolate afterwards.  That means mommy has to make it, but maybe I can get some scrapbooking in before and after.

In the meantime I still have some projects from last year that I would like to share.  This first one is a sign I made for the boys for their first day of Kindergarten! 

I used Locker Talk and My Community Cricut cartridges for the images on the sign.  I kept it fairly simple, well because I did at the last minute!  I worked on it the night before their first day.

I think I am going to have to make a sign for their first day every year now!

This next one actually has a story behind it, one that I think i will remember always.

It's raining chocolate chip cookies!  This all started when my son "C" was makign wishes.  Whenever he saw the first star at night or threw a coin in a fountain, he would say, "I wish it would rain chocolate chip cookies!"  Well, the more tell it like it is son "B" would say, "that can't happen!"  Well, I was determined to make it happen for my sweet little dreamer!

So one day while they were in school, I cut the cloud and cookies from my cricut and baked up a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies.  I tied the cookies to the cloud to make it look like the cookies were coming out of the cloud, and then I tied it to the light in the dining room.  Then I put the plate of real cookies underneath so it looked the plate caught the cookies falling from the cloud.

When they got home and walked into the dining room, I heard a lot of laughter and squeals of happiness, and then the best thing of all.  Son C ran up to me, gave me a hug and said, "Mommy, you made my wish come true!"  Sometimes they can definitely test my patience, but this one statement makes all the effort worth it.  The cookie cloud is now hanging up in their room.

The cloud was made from the cartridge Mickey and Friends, and the cookies are from From My Kitchen.


  1. The chocolate chip cookie rain is awesome! Have you ever read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs? Based on this story, I think "C" would love it!

  2. Thanks! I haven't seen that movie yet, but it is the next one on our list for the boys. Can't wait to see it now!
