Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

Yeah! 3 for 3! These were a lot of fun to make! Now, on to cleaning and if I have time 2 more group projects!?!?! Oh, crap and Christmas cards. Well, I guess now they'll be New Year cards! We all need to protest and get more hours in a day! Just around Christmas! Well, maybe not because those days that you want to beat your head might be worse off!

I made these for our parents for Christmas! 2 down, 1 more to go!

Out of Control  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

So, Trey's in charge of snack tomorrow and the theme is Baby Jesus. Yes, he's at a church preschool. He's been talking about these Baby Jesus snacks I made last year but I don't remember exactly what I did. Something with candy. I wanted to do them different this time with less sugar. Did you see the pic? Not even close to less sugar, try quadruple! In my head they turned out a lot smaller. Good thing tomorrow's Friday because those kids are going to be OUT OF CONTROL on sugar!! Whoops!

Card Clips  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

I needed something to hold my suggestion cards for Tastefully Simple Open Houses! I looked everywhere and was way too cheap to pay $2 a piece, so I came across these in the Oriental Trading Craft catalog! They were natural wood and I painted them and covered them with paper. I also bit the bullet and decided to use my Flower Fusion. They worked great and everyone thought I spent lots of money on them!

Thanks Again Cheri!  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

Look at all my goodies! This was my last package from my great Bella Sistah, Cheri! My Favorite Things, Stamping Bella, Sarah Kay, and Whiff of Joy are just some of the stamps I got. An awesome embellishment organizer, flowers, buttons, stickers, ribbon, designer papers, handmade cards and so much more!!!! Thanks so much! I can't wait to use everything!

Thanksgiving Table  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

This is what I made for our Thanksgiving table. I took the glass plate wall decoration idea and made place settings. I used the repositionable tape on the placemat then put the plate on top. It worked out pretty good and they didn't even get messy! So I can use them again next year! And yes, those are huge plates! I was tired of not having enough room for all my food on a plate so I decided to use 13 inch platters! Trey was excited his food don't touch!

Beatrice Joined The Sisterhood!  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

I made this for the SCS swap, Night at the Movies! My inspiration was Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants! Yeah, I'm a sucker for cheesy chic flics!!! To say the least! I'm also using this as my entry for the Fall Bella Bash! I'm totally thankful for Beatrice Bellbottoms! As Em would say, she's yummalicious!!!!

Turkey Time  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

These are the treats we're giving to Trey's friends at school. Yes, they're empty. I ran out of peanut butter and too lazy to go to the store right now. So, I guss I'm going to have to do the unthinkable and give store bought cookies. Aaaaaahhhhhh! You have no idea how much it pains me to say that! But, I didn't get to bed until 4 am last night and it's already pushing 3 am tonight. That's pretty much my only option. Ooh, I almost forgot I need to make Mac N Chz for school tomorrow. Okay, enough rambling. I'm more tired than I thought. Have a great weekend everyone! Don't go too crazy getting ready for next week!

Happy Birthday Ms. Lisa  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

Ms. Lisa's birthday is over break, so we're bringing this in tomorrow! More bath salts!

Have a Great Break Teachers!  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

I made these for my son's teacher. They have White Tea bath salts inside! I found the jars at Old Time Pottery for 50 cents, and the bath salts were only a few bucks for all of them. Can't beat it for a cheap gift!

Another package for my aunt!  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

My aunt is going in for surgery for the other hand tomorrow so I'm going to send this off to her! There's bath salts in the altered flower container. Oh, and yes, she does actually swing! You can't really have a girl on a swing that doesn't move. :)

Okay, so I have a few new found loves (even though I definitely do not need anymore):

Memento Tuxedo Black - all of you Bellas were right! This stuff rocks!!!!!! Good bye StazOn, Hello Memento!!

Stamp Oasis Little Lovin's - Aren't these images adorable?!? There are tons to choose from and they're really inexpensive, even with shipping!!!

Copic Markers - I broke down and bought my first Copic the other day. I originally bought Prismacolor markers because they were a little cheaper. Anybody need any? I'm going to sell them to buy Copics!!!

Blog Candy Update: I am still trying to get all the goodies together and I will post a pic tomorrow! It will definitely be worth the wait!! I was up til 4 am last night/this morning finishing those cookie swap invites! Glad to say they're done! But I think cute!

Now, I better go start making everything for Trey's Thanksgiving Party tomorrow!

Cookie Swap Invite  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

My friend needed help with her cookie swap invites and this is what we came up with! She was a lot of help with all 60 of them! Yes, I was a little too ambitious! But, what's new! I think they turned out cute, do you?

Happy Birthday Gift Card Holder  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

This is the gift card holder I made for one of Trey's teachers!

Halloween/Fall Party Gifts  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

These are the gifts we made for the Fall Party (can't say Halloween because he goes to a church school). The pillow boxes were filled with the best Chex Mix ever. And of course the candle holders were for the teachers with a yummy Mocha scented candle! I used the Xyron and Big Shot to create the design on the glass. I have to say, love the 5" Xyron but really don't care for the X. I tried to use it for some ribbon and it was way too messy. Better luck next time!

Okay, so here's the best Chex Mix ever for Trey's friend's Halloween treats. Of course, I didn't follow the recipe (when do I ever?). Look at the bottom to see what I changed!


So here it is:
2 cups Corn Chex
2 Honey Chex
handful of dried cranberries (Great Value - WM)
handful of cut dried apples (Great Value - WM)
handful of golden raisins
but followed everything else.
I have to admit I was very hesitant on coking it in the microwave, but it did work.

Warning - The Bobbitts  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

I'm very sorry if I offend anyone reading this, but I had to post my Halloween Costumes! Afterall, I think I worked just as hard on these as I do a card! We had so much fun at our party last night! There was lots of craziness going on!

Trey's Birthday Cake  

Posted by Danyel aka Nelliebella

Call off the search! I'm no longer MIA! At least for a minute. I've been super crazy getting ready for my son's birthday. 2 parties down, 1 more to go! He picked a circus theme so here's the cake for the main event. I have to say though all the stress and craziness is so worth it. After his sno cone party at school today he said "Thank you Mommy. That was the best birthday party I ever had!!!" Of course, my heart melted and wanted to cry!

Thank you to all of my wonderful readers, I hit 1000!!!! I am in need of suggestions for holiday cards with a picture front. So, get your gears turning and be on the lookout for some awesome blog candy in the next week or so.
