SECRET SISTER CAMP SURPRISE!!

My daughter went to Girls Camp and she was asked to share or make something for another girl in her camp that cost under $5.  
It's called Secret Sister!  
Of course my wheels were spinning, trying to figure out what to make!!   
We were given some clues about her Secret Sister.
 The clues were:
1) She loves TOOTSIE ROLLS!
2) She also loves 100 Grand Candy Bars.
3) Her favorite colors are Blue & Green!
 So off we went....
Tootsie Rolls are the hardest thing to find this time of the year....Augh!!  
 But of course, we found them at good ole' Michaels Craft Store!  
And in the JUMBO size!! 
This is what we made with the Giant Tootsie Roll!
"Happy Happy, Joy, Joy!!"  


From this:
To this:


For the note pad, I borrowed this idea from Kerry over at
Her projects are so super cute and easy to make!! 
 I made this in less than 5 minutes!! 
(No lie)!


We loaded some 100 Grand mini candy bars in the mason jar.  
These are all the treats she took to camp with her!
Have a fabulous weekend!

YOUTH CAMP SURPRISE!

My son and daughter went to Youth Camp last month.   
I wanted to give them each some treats to keep them busy and to remind them of home.  
I packed some wipes, mosquito spray, notebook, pen/pencil, tissues etc, and gave them some extra candy to share with their friends.  
And of course, I am still making cards! 
These are the baskets and cards they took to camp.  
Oh, by the way, I have a giveaway coming soon!!
Thanks for stopping by!

"WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO....."

Oh my....I have been missing in action for what feels like forever!!  I have been "CRAZY BUSY", starting "TONS" of projects!  My family and I just got home from our New York Summer Vacation.  Had tons of fun.  We ate enough pizza to last us a few months.  
New York pizza is "to die for".  
We always bring at least 2 frozen pizza's back home with us.
Now this is what "REAL" pizza looks like!!
 We went to New York City (Manhattan) where we did some sightseeing, and stopped by a little street food festival and tried "FRIED OREOS"!!  Can you believe it!!  They were so delicious...there goes an extra 5lbs
We did some more sightseeing at West Point Military Academy, fishing and visited with some friends and family.

How's your summer going?
I must say, I'm glad to be back home again.  
I've got tons of projects in the works to show, so stay tuned!
Until later!!
