My Beautiful Daughter's Baby Shower

Happy September!! I can not believe that it is already September.....boy time has flown by at record speeds this year it seems. The last post list on my blog is from February but I have actually posted a few more times since then from my iPhone but when I checked them from my work computer they were all out of line and messed up so I deleted them. I had been having trouble with my laptop that is why I was posting using an app on my phone. But just two weekends ago I got a new HP computer desktop with a bigger screen for my old eye lol so I hope that posting will be fun again and not a stressful event. :) Today I am posting pics of my oldest daughters baby shower and the decorations that I made for it. I made the little cradles and owl invites and table centerpieces using my Cricut. I used baby shower and create a critter cartridges. I used CTMH cardstock and pattern paper because it was the only company that I could get bulk paper in the colors my daughter wanted to us. I use Chantilly workshop and cotton candy, buttercup, sunset, pear and ruby cardstock. I LOVE Chantilly paper and I plan to use it to scrap most of my granddaughters first year. :) I also made two larger cradles to place on either side of the jar centerpiece. I set up 8 I made 8 jar centerpieces, 16 large cradles and 60 "cradle full of kisses" treat favors. My daughter and I also made 60 plus invites to send out. we have been very busy the past couple of months. My daughter made the wreath behind the gift table.....she got the creative talent from me. ;). The dark haired beauty is my youngest daughter Autumn. I love my girl so very much and enjoy all the work that went into the shower to celebrate my granddaughter Evalynn Ann!! I can not wait to meet her. I hope everyone has a good week!!

2013 Valentine Treats

These are some of the Valentine treats I have been working on for my friends and co-workers. As I have said before my big sis sells CTMH and in January they had this kit, Whoo's your Valentine, that had a V-day stamp set, glitter paper and three pieces of cardstock, 12 tubes, the cardstock bases already cut and scored in it. All I had to do is fold glue and decorate bases and fill with candy. The kit only cost $10 I think with a $30 purchase. It was a great deal and made my Valentine day treating so very easy. They sell the tubes in the new catty in a quantity of 6 so I believe I will have to get more and come up with another holder for them. I use so many different products when decorating them that it will be hard to list everything. The candy bars are Dove bars cover in the More Amore paper and I used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits to decorate them…oh and the That’s the Ticket set and ticket punch. Thanks for visiting and have a great evening!!

Hearts a Flutter

Good Monday Morning I have been working on the last of my Valentine cards this weekend. I made two cards from the same sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I mixed them up a bit using ribbon on one and cardstock punch trim on the other. All products are SU except the little heart punch I used and glitter paper. I am rushing to get ready for work and will post supply list later also I have some Valentine treats to post also. Have a good Monday and thanks for visiting!!

Forgotten Halloween Card

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday afternoon. I found this Halloween card when I was cleaning my scrap area up. I love this Halloween DSP I hope it goes on the clearance rack eventually cause I will get more if it does. I am also posting a picture of our puppy Logan in his wildcat jersey. He is just over six months old and so much fun. My husband got him right after we lost are very beloved dachshund Sadie in September. She was the sweetest natured dog that I have ever owned. My girls and I were so upset my husband found Logan the next day and got him for our family. The girls are not for sure if they like him yet...he is pretty rotten at times. I think they forgot how a puppy acts lol. He is a handful but a joy. This is the first dog my husband has allowed to sleep with us.

Honey and Cinnamon

It is found that mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most of the diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.

Scientists of today also accept honey as a "Ram Ban" (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.

Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists.

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, chapatti, or other bread, instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who already had an attack, if they do this process daily, are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalizes the arteries and veins.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

TOOTHACHE: Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth. This may be applied three times a day until the tooth stops aching.

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol

patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken 3 times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. As per information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS: According to the studies done in India & Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts.

Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food, relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take 4 teaspoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.

PIMPLES: Mix three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon to make a powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS: Apply honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts to cure eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

WEIGHT LOSS: Daily in the morning 1/2 hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month 3 times a day.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon power in equal parts are more alert and flexible.

Dr. Milton who has done research says that a half tablespoon honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing your teeth and in the afternoon at about 3:00 p.m. When the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America first thing in the morning gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.
