Scripture Reading Habit Made SUPER EASY…2014 Scripture Chart!!!!

scripture low res

Ok….so this is the 3nd year I have posted this Scripture Reading Chart.  Some of you may remember the post we did recently where we talked about the fact that all 5 Crafting Chicks and many other creative bloggers are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or Mormons, the post can be found HERE.  If you read this post, you can see the importance for us to read from The Book of Mormon in the lives of members of our church.  So you can imagine that it’s also important for us to read this book with our families to draw nearer to Jesus Christ and God the Father.  Until 3 years ago, it was merely a dream to make this a daily habit with our family.  This has really really become easy and we’ve learned that “consistency is the key”.  This is dedicated to our friends that showed us this trick….and we are so grateful for their [Read More…]

I’m back with another clever gift tag. I’m sure Feliz Navidad is a song you are all too familiar with (since it easily gets stuck in your head). This tag is a fun play on the “Feliz” and tied around a soft blanket makes for a quick gift.  Bonus, the recipient will be singing the song for days!

Gingerbread Houses {A Christmas Tradition} & Free Printables

gingerbread header

  A favorite family Christmas tradition of ours is to make Gingerbread houses.  My kids look forward to this every year…and we’ve made great memories!  Below I am sharing pictures of some past gingerbread houses as well as tips on how to make your gingerbread house making experience great!  (we’ve learned what works best!) Tip 1:  You can choose a boxed house but before the kids begin to decorate it, it’s a good idea to put it together beforehand so it can set before you add your goodies. I LOVE individual mini houses with graham crackers.  AND my secret….HOT glue them together before.  Ha!  It works like a charm and prevents frustration.  Kids love decorating the best, so if the houses are ready, and sturdy, it’s much more of a success.  Plus…they don’t really eat it right, except maybe picking candy off:) Tip 2:  I love having each house on a plate (a festive one) and HOT glue the house [Read More…]

Brightly Beaming Gift Tags

Brightly Beaming Gift Tag

I’ve found that giving small, inexpensive gifts still has a ‘WOW’ effect if there is a cute or cheesy tag attached. The tags takes it from “I didn’t have anything so I quickly grabbed this for you” to “time and thought went into this gift just for you”! See how easy that is!? The first is for a flashlight, or head lamp. The men in my life are obsessed with lights, so I’ve been giving flashlights as Christmas presents (to my dad) since I was a little girl. They run the range on prices, so pick one in your budget and add this tag! That’s all you need to do! All printables and downloads designed by The Crafting Chicks are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.

Supplies you need: -Snowflake ornaments (I found mine at Taipan Trading) -Pretty Ribbon -Metal Juice tops (or you can use wooden circles-similar to my snowflake ornaments) -Hot glue gun and glue -Printed monogram  (I made mine in photoshop)  I just used the type tool and fancy fonts to make mine…super simple  (you can even use word) Cut out your Monogram circle and glue it in the juice can lid.  I also modpodged over my Monogram to seal it.  Hot glue on your snowflake ornament and that’s it! They are so easy to hang or tie on your stocking.  Add a festive ribbon and you are set! Pin It
