Halloween bugs and kisses

First, let me apologize....
This was not my original idea - I stole it.
I made these cute little trick or treat bags for my neighbors children a few years ago, but can't for the life of me, remember where I downloaded it from.
I would love to give credit where credit is due, but I have no clue where it came from.
Aren't they cute?
They were so easy to make.
Just a bit of cardstock, baggies, spider rings and kisses!
Do you hand out candy or are you one of those who turn the lights out, lock the door and hide?
I am the latter, but I do always try to make my friends children a little something.
Am I bad?

Quick, easy, washable and embroiderable!

Oakleigh's car seat cover.
Oakleigh is now nine years old and has outgrown this car seat.
Even though it was personalized for Oakleigh, it has been used by her sister, Brantley, and many of my nieces and nephews from time to time.
It is now time to pass it on to my sister-in-law for her grandbabies.
Honestly, it still looks brand new and we are hoping to convince the boys that "Oakleigh" is just the brand name!

Don't you just LOVE them?
They have so much to look at and their prices are always right.
I often stroll through HomeGoods looking for gift ideas.
Bettina's birthday was coming up soon and I needed a little gift.
I usually wander around trying to find something I can personalize.
 I found the sweetest little ceramic tray holding a bottle of lemon scented hand soap and lotion.
 I then found an adorable little yellow and white cutting board to match.
It was just the right size to prop behind the soap and add some color.
I added the personalized dishtowel and (since everything had a lemon theme) I included my favorite lemon pie recipe.

All wrapped and ready to go...
Because everything at HomeGoods is so reasonably priced, I was able to put this little gift together for under $20.
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

One Crockpot two meals

All you need is a package of premade meatballs and a couple cans of store bought pasta sauce.

Add the frozen meatballs and a couple (or more) cans/jars of your favorite sauce into the Crockpot and cook on low for 5 or 6 hours.

Could it get any easier or cheaper?

Day one - add spaghetti noodles, garlic bread and a salad.

 Day two - Spread a little garlic butter on a hoagie roll and toast it a bit under the broiler.
Add the meatballs and mozzarella cheese on top of the toasted hoagie roll.
Pop it back under the broiler to melt the cheese. 
Seriously, how easy was that!

Cherry Sorbetto

These Sorbetto tops are just too easy to whip together.
They take very little fabric and are super comfy.

I made my own bias tape for the armhole and neckline, but store bought would work just as well.

The placket in the front comes together very easy.

All the fabric, bias tape and buttons came from my scrap pile so this baby didn't cost me a penny to make.
I love it when that happens.

You can check out my others here and here.

Happy Wednesday!
