Lucky Hedbanz

We had so much fun with our Valentine Hedbanz cards, that I’m back with a set for St. Patrick’s Day. If you aren’t familiar with the game HedBanz* here’s a quick break down. You wear awesome plastic headbands that have a slit to hold the card. Without looking at the card you insert it into the slit, and then by asking questions you try to figure out what you are. Kind of like 20 questions. Only instead of 20 questions, you are racing against a timer. If you get it before your time is up you pick another card and keep asking until your time expires. Then it’s the next person’s turn. When it comes around to you again, you pick up asking questions where you left off before. It promotes logical thinking and a lot of laughs! If you don’t have the game, I bet you could make elastic headbands, like the elastic hair ties only larger, and they would [Read More...]

Valentine Happy Mail – Party in a Box

SONY DSC

Valentine’s Day is hands down my favorite time of year to send mail. A pink envelope in the mailbox is a very happy surprise in the dead of winter! I took it a little further with this party-in-a-box for my nieces and nephews. I’m a sucker for holiday sprinkles, it is impossible for me to walk by an end cap of jars full of colorful little jars of jimmies and holiday shapes without stopping. I just can’t. I mean, look how cute these are. As my collection kept expanding I realized it’s actually quite difficult to use an entire container of sprinkles per holiday. Let alone 3 or 4 containers. That’s when I it hit me that if I divided them into small containers I could share! And if there’s one thing I love more than sprinkles it is sending happy mail to my sisters and the nieces and nephews. Someone’s got to be the favorite aunt, and why shouldn’t [Read More...]

Make Your Own Delicious Italian Cream Sodas + Free Printable

italian-cream-soda-MAIN

Italian cream sodas have been deliciously popular over the past little while–and not only are they yummy to drink, they are really easy to make! I made them quite a bit this summer–at girls camp for our church, at our family trip to Lake Powell, and most recently we made them for our Back to School dinner. Here’s what you need to make your own Italian Cream Sodas: Ice Club Soda Flavored Syrup (it’s fun to have a variety of your favorite flavors!) Half and half straws one-ounce measuring cups (I got some at Walmart) I bought these bottles of flavored syrup at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City. They were only about $4.99 for nearly 26 ounces of syrup–which is one of the best prices I found. They have tons of different flavors; our favorites were raspberry, peach, strawberry, vanilla, orange and watermelon. I made a cute little printable to set up at the table so people know how [Read More...]

Shamrock Soda

I was so excited to stick these in my kids lunch on St. Patrick’s Day…until I realized that St. Patty’s falls on a Sunday this year But I think they might get a green lunch surprise on Friday instead. Oh, and wouldn’t they be cute little good luck drinks for a sporting event or test day? Just download the file, print, cut, and wrap around the bottle. I used little bottles of Sprite and secured the label with tape. {Remember, all printables and downloads designed by The Crafting Chicks are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.

Chalkboard Art Mini Frame

Mini Eleanor

I currently have a big fat crush on chalkboard art. And I love the miniature frames from PoppySeed Projects. And this project combines the two. Originally this projected was posted on their blog, but I wanted to be sure you saw it (and got a chance at the free download at the end) First thing that I love? Poppy Seeds miniature frames! You know how small things are adorable? Well, it’s the same with these frames! I think they are so fun painted a bright color and left empty on in a wall collage. In fact (don’t tell Kim or Holly) I think the mini’s are my absolute favorite of all their frames. I used the Miniature Eleanor Frames, sanded and painted a metallic red. Because the frame is so small I decided to keep it pretty simple and just a solid color. And the other thing I’m loving right now is chalkboard art! So I created this little bitty [Read More...]
