Rebecca is so Crafty!!

052Look at what Rebecca painted on her sister’s nails!!

We have been in the whole Jamberry Nail craze going on at our church and I had forgotten how good Rebecca had been getting at painting nails.

She did such a good job!!

I am partial because I love Pooh Bear…

and my daughter is amazing :)

Bloom had great Christmas ideas

Our Bloom group leaders shared some really wonderful Christmas gift ideas that I thought I would share here too.

If  you are a crafty person these are great ideas!

I try to be crafty so I will be trying some of them too.

Check out these cute ideas!!

001I love the 3 trees table top idea here at the bottom.  That is such a great story to read to the kids too.

The “Come let us adore Him” in the frame, is made on old hymn paper and just put in a cool frame from Goodwill!!

The manger was made out of shims from Home Depot. Then they put the “baby Jesus” in Christmas eve. In their family it was a Cabbage Patch doll.

On the left there is a basket that is filled with short Christmas stories that you can read to your kids or grandbabies when they come to visit!

003Love all of these ideas too!!

Okay the Merry Christmas signs are paper from a scrapbook paper pad. She cut it out and modge podged it to a painted canvas from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon!! The other she put into a frame!

The “For unto us is born” is another framed paper, this time from an old bible that was missing pages.

The M was made for me!! She got a cardboard M from Michael’ s and modge podged the stripped paper on it then embellished it!!

The NOEL sign in the back, some recycled jars with fake snow then put letter stickers on the outside.

The bottom right had some thank you cards wrapped in a bow and a flower pen slid through. The envelopes have the return address for the person already printed on them.

004The best idea here is the towel wrapped up.

Sound silly?

No way! Here is the note you send with it:

005Awesome right?

This is the gift I am sending out this year!!

Okay now forgive this picture, I was trying to hold my coffee and take a picture of this cool wreath!

010I know the picture is small but she got a cardboard box, cut it in a circle and wrapped it with yarn! Then she just embellished it with silk flowers she had from last Christmas!!

These next ideas, from my friend Maria, all were made from toilet paper rolls!!

015Obviously for the more talented, in other words, too hard for me.

Look at this one…

016Wow, right?

017I actually have tried this one…

We will just call it my “pintrest fail”.

These are some great ideas that I brought home that I thought you might like too!!

Have fun my fellow crafty friends!!

Kool-aid eggs


These eggs turned out sooo pretty!!

We went for the Kool-aid dye that we found on pintrest.

It is so easy I have no idea why I never tried this before!

Just grab a few different Kool-aid packs…

then add a cup of warm water, stir and start dipping your eggs!

Really, it is that easy.

Such pretty colors and no stinky smell!

Then if you grab a white crayon from your collection (I know you have one) and you color the egg first then dye it, the dye will not stick to the crayon. So you can design them in a personal way.

Here is Belle’s.

So gonna do this again next year!!
