Holiday Wish List

Jennifer's Holiday Wish List Meme

TodaysMama (link to: and GameStop (link to: are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.

1. What is your holiday wish for your family?
My holiday wish for my family is to have a Jesus centered, fun filled, stress free holiday.

2. What is your Christmas morning / Hanukkah Nightly tradition?
We are starting a new tradition on Christmas this year by staying at home ALL day on Christmas.  Since my husband and I have been married we have always traveled to Christmas Eve/Christmas Day.  This year we have decided that with our two small children we are STAYING HOME!!!  And I am very much looking forward to it.

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
My decadent wish for myself would be a brand new, self cleaning house filled with all the things I love!!!!  Wouldn't that be nice!!!

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
To be honest I haven't done a very good job of this but this year I am making a advent calendar and puttings lots of activities in it so that we, as a family, can spend time together and have fun!!!
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
I have always loved board games:  Monoply, Life, Connect 4, etc.

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
Going overboard!!!

7. Where would you go for a Christmas/Hanukkah-away-from-home trip?
HAWAII!!!!  I don't care about the snow.  The beach would be just fine with me.

8. Check out GameStop (link to: and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?

Cricut Cake

I stumbled upon a blog that is giving away a Cricut Cake.  Okay, I actually didn't stumble across it, I got an email about it.  :)  Anyway, I would give away a kidney for a Cricut Cake.  I can't afford one right now so winning this giveaway would be the only way I would get one any time soon! 

Today's Creative Blog is the blog that is giving one away.  I don't really know many details about it but stay tuned......

Silhouette Giveaway

I want to apologize to anyone that has looked at my blog and has been disappointed because of the lack of posting.  I am trying my best to get this blog started....but sometimes life just gets in the way!  I am, though, collecting fun ideas I see to tell you about. 

I want to tell you about several blogs that are giving away an AWESOME machine.  I have found at least 14 people that are giving a Silhouette away.  And if you don't win they have a great promo code for you to use.  I will be posting these blogs over the next couple of days so be sure to check back often!  If you don't know what a Silhouette is check out the website and blog!

The first one you should check out is U Create.  I have been following this blog for quite some time and she has the cutest ideas on there.  The best part is that you only have to make a comment on her blog to enter the giveaway! 

Best of luck!!!

Cupcake Carnival

One crafty thing that I love to do is bake and decorate cakes and cupcakes.  While I was cruising around the web I came upon a Cupcake Carnival that is being hosted by Attempting Creative

I thought that I would show off some of the cupcakes and cupcake cakes that I have made in the past:

Polka Dot Cupcakes for a Baby Boy Shower
Pink and Green Daisies for a Baby Girl Shower

Daisy Cupcakes for my sweet Amberlin (yes, I am that OCD that I made my own cupcakes!)

Nest cupcakes for Baby Boy Hall
A Horse themed cupcake cake for my Aaron's 3rd birthday
A cupcake cake for Aaron's 4th birthday. . . yep you guessed it Go Diego Go themed!
I hope you will join in on the fun . . . but today is the last day so go over to the Cupcake Carnival and check out all the fun cupcakes that are on display. 

(And for some reason blogger is being persnickity and will only allow to me post my pictures left aligned.  Don't like it at all!  Hopefully I will figure out what is going on.)

T-shirt Revamp

Do you have any old t-shirts. . . . or news ones for that matter. . . that you just don't really love? 

Lemon Crafts has a fun way to revamp those frumpy t-shirts to something beautiful and fun.

Now I need to find all those old frumpy shirts that have been pushed to the back of my closet.

A Crafty Calling

Two loves in my life are coming together:  Crafts and Blogs

I'm addicted to both.  I'm not afraid to admit it. 

You will learn that about me, if nothing else, I am honest. 

This blog is going to be a place that I can showcase some craftiness that I have and also that others have been gifted with as well.  I hope you will come back and visit often.  And when you do, leave a comment, I love fan mail! 

I am working on getting two big items for giveaways!!!!  Stay tuned!
