So with all the talk and worry over the Swine Flu, you know the H1N1, worst flu ever, what else are they calling it........well I am NERVOUS about it! I have 2 little boys. One that will be three next week and a 1.5 year old. So my question, are you getting the vaccine for your kids? I have been so back and forth on it! We have gotten the seasonal flu shot, but not the H1N1 yet.

If you are getting it, leave me a comment and tell me why!!

If you aren't getting it, leave a comment and tell me why!

Thanks! I would really appreciate some help on this!

It is official. Today is day 5 with out sugar and feeling great. You know it really hasnt' been that hard either. My friend Brittany is awesome and last time I talked with her she was going strong on the no sugar thing! Wow! Shes great. Another inspiration came from another lady I know that has gone for 6 months without sugar and has 70 lbs gone to show for it!

After I finished my bag of carmels and feeling horrible about eating all of them in 2 days I decided something had to change! Then I remembered these amazing ladies and new I could do it! The best part is, I DON"T REALLY MISS IT! Coming from me that is HUGE!! I think candy is my main food group most days!

So this is step one in becoming more healthy. For me this works! I'm an all or nothing kind of gal

Super Saturday Muffin Pan Countdown instructions

I have had quite of few emails and comments about the instructions for the muffin pan countdown! Isn't it adorable! It was sooooo easy to make too!

You need:

1 muffin pan for 24 muffins (I got mine at Walmart for $4.50!!! YES 4.50, but they were up with all the seasonal stuff, if you need a UPC for it let me know!)

A black ink pad

Colored card stock- the one I saw had a few more colors, but I just used 2 to keep costs down

Glue stick

Embellishments (you won't need many)

Ribbon to hang the pan from

Magnets I got mine in a rollat Walmart for about 4 dollars

NUMBERS - You can make your own by using different fonts OR I went here and printed them off!

Ok- here we go.

Cut you cardstock into 24 squares about 2 1/4 inches

If you have an edge rounder use that to round the edges, if not do it the hard way and use your scissors, I did it the hard way :)

Use Ink the egdes, just run the ink pad along the egdes. You can't mess this up!

Cut out your letters and glue them together. Adding any embellishments you might like.

Use a few strips of magnets on the back of the numbers to keep them in place.

I drilled holes in the top of mu pan to hang ribbon from, but you don't have to!

I used the remaining cardstock to make the CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN for the top, inking everything to give it the finished off look. I just printed it using microsoft word! EASY EASY

That in a nut shell is all you have to do. I told you it was EASY!!!! Good luck. I'd LOVE to see your finished projects!!!

More Halloween Decorations

Good Morning!! Here are some of my Halloween decorations that I finally got together during conference on Saturday. Enjoy.

This cute little holder I found at a garage sale for 3 dollars! It was 1 of 2! I was so excited to have 2 of them! I had some plans, but when I got home and unloaded the van, it fell out and BROKE!!! Oh well, one is still good. I just pulled all the flowers off of the stems and filled the holder, then added a bow. I really love the look it gives it. I think it would be cute with fall leaves too!! These are some cute little pumpkins I made! It requires MINIMAL sewing! Lets just be right up front, I don't know how to sew :) They were super easy. If you would like instructions, leave a message!

This is the top of my tv armoire.

My firplace.....The Pumpkins on there are also SOOOO easy to make! Its just blocks of wood with dowels for stems!!

Hope you enjoyed the decorations!
Coming soon.....Super saturday projects and ideas!!! YAY!!!
