a NEW wedding gift combo {and free card printable}


Happy Friday!  So..in June when my son got married, I was so impressed with people’s creative wedding gifts!  I thought, WOW, how do people have the time to be so creative?!?   I then realized it probably didn’t take all that much extra time to just add a little something unique to the gifts, so I resolved to try to be a bit more creative.  Here is one idea:  Copy a cute and “lovey-dovey” saying on the bottom of a glass pan with a black sharpie. (I only wrote on one pan and left the other one normal)…add a couple of dish towels and oven mitts…top it off with a homemade card and whala!…a not-so-boring wedding gift! :o)


I made up the card speedy-quick-like.  I used my NEW embossing machine for the textured bottom paper, then just added the graphic below (feel free to print it out for your use).




Let me know if any of you have any wonderful (quick-but-creatively-unique) wedding gift ideas!  This one might get over-used if I don’t have a few other ideas up my sleeve…so please share! :o)

Have a terrific day!  Do or learn (OR GIVE AWAY) something NEW!

NEWly organized pots and pans

I do NOT think pots and pans were created to live in cupboards….they are just too oddly shaped and it typically isn’t efficient use of space. Am I right? I prefer to hang my pots and pans. I’ve loved my curtain rod in my pantry, which I’ve had for a few years now, but I recently added a NEW second rod. {see the old/single rod below}

What’s great is the second rod only took up a couple more inches of pantry space, and I can hang twice as many pots and pans. SCorE! I love efficiency…especially brand-spankin’-NEW efficiency!
