Family, Food, Fun

Fall is upon us and with it brings my favorite holiday:

The top reasons I enjoy this holiday:
Fun times

Eyelet Outlet's most recent release has some great food brads
with NO CALORIES whatsoever.
Feel free to use a ton of them on your cards and projects, without feeling an ounce of guilt
if you are counting calories!!

Donuts are versitile pastries.
From breakfast to late night snacks to fall hayrides and cider,
donuts are crowd pleasers!


I'm hosting Thanksgiving weekend this year 
and I have already started my menu planning and shopping lists.
Here are baking brads that I won't ever have to clean/wash up after!


What are you serving up for holiday dinners?
Here is a favorite cranberry salad recipe that everyone requests!
