Paper plate GHOST

 We started making some Halloween crafts today.  This one was super easy to make.  Here is the link.
Once my other daughter gets home and sees this, she is going to want to make one or two or three.

Back to School teacher gift

I made this for O to take to her teacher on her Meet & Greet night.  I figured the first day of school would be crazy!  I found this idea on Pinterest.  You can find the tutorial here.  It was super easy and fun!  I already had a large pineapple can.  I had to buy the cork.  Used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby.  I used regular glue to put the cork on.  Then I realized, I needed to buy another roll of cork.  Went back the next day and used my 40% coupon again.  You know, you can show them the coupon on your smartphone.  No need to print coupons anymore.  Anywhoo, as I opened the next package of cork, I realized it was self stick on the back.  I was a little worried, but, it worked out wonderfully.  And, I think both corks that I bought were different thickness.  Of course, I didn't look.
 The green tacks, paper clips and the pencils came from Target Dollar Spot.  I bought the candy and the ruler at HL.  The note cards were a FREE printable that I just printed and cut myself.  (I don't have the link to this, so, if anyone knows, please let me know, so I can give credit.  I still have the pdf file though.)  The Kindergarten sign came from a piece of scrapbook paper that I had and I just cut that out.  I made the apple from my Cricut and had O write her teachers name on it.

As I am looking at the apple, I realized that she wrote Mrs. and she is a Ms.  Oopsie!  Sorry Ms. Janke!  :)

Bubblegum Necklace

Decided to make these gumball necklaces.  The inspiration came from here.
The other blogger said she used a metal skewer to make her holes.  So, I'm thinking to myself, what can I use?  Don't laugh, but, I used our metal, marshmallow stick to make the holes.  Worked perfect!  Then I used a large needle to thread the ribbon thru.

 The girls enjoyed them!
