Black and White Pumpkin Frame

trick or treat pumpkin frame from the cards we drew

Halloween is coming up and the challenge we find each year is trying to get out trick or treating with our son, but still get back in time to hand some candy out. So I thought maybe I'd come up with a little sign or something to put on our porch with a basket of candy. Using a cute Pumpkin frame from Cut It Out Frames I created this simple Black and White Pumpkin Frame...also using some fun Hazel and Ruby Mask Stencils! The whole project is pretty simple. Here's what you need: Pumpkin Frame from Cut It Out White Paint Black Paint Paint Brushes Black Glitter (Martha Stewart is what I used) Glue Orange Sharpie Hazel … [Read more...]

New Jimmy Dean® Lunch and Dinner Options!

Jimmy-Dean-Delights

In my family it's a constant struggle for my husband and I to find things to bring to lunch. My husband works very early hours, so when he eats lunch it's really more like breakfast and I work downtown so the options I have are limited, I had to walk every where (in the elements), and it's expensive! So we both have our challenges with lunch time. I always am looking for new products to try...but I feel like it's very hit or miss to find frozen meals that don't sacrifice quality for nutrition or calories for taste. So honestly, I was REALLY pleasantly surprised when I heard our trusted breakfast brand, Jimmy Dean®, started making these great … [Read more...]
