Hi friends, It’s been forever! A lot has changed in the past month….I recently started working full-time again and my blog/creative time has been put on the back burner. I sure do miss having my craft & blogging time! Now that I’ve gotten into a routine and the craziness has slowed down a bit, I would like to start making time to share my crafts and stories with you again.
So why not start with a craft for one of my favorite holidays…Halloween! I found these cute, vintage Halloween images online and thought they would be fun hanging on my little black Halloween tree.
All you need is a few printed images, some self laminating sheets from the dollar store, and a little bit of ribbon to make these fun little hanging cards.
To make these cards, start by printing out your images at about 3 x 5 size. Follow the simple instructions on the self laminating sheets and trim off the excess. Be sure to leave a small 1/8 in border so your sheets stay sealed. Punch a hole at the top of the card and string your choice of ribbon thru. That’s all you need to make these cute little cards!
There’s so many ways to use these cute little cards…scrapbooking, planners, attach them to cute goody bags, or even use them as postcards/cards! I hope this gives you some ideas for ways you can add to your Halloween decor with just a few inexpensive supplies.

That’s a mouthful right? Let me tell ya, it is delicious! I needed a quick, hearty dinner this week so I put this together. It was really good and my family enjoyed it.
For this recipe you’ll need:
-ready made ravioli ( I used Buitoni sweet bell pepper & roasted chicken stuffed ravioli)
-your choice of marinara
-shredded mozzarella & grated parmesan cheese
-Italian bread crumbs
First you’ll want to pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees, and boil your pasta per the instructions on the package. Once that’s done, turn off the heat on the pasta and set aside. (I left my pasta in the water so they wouldn’t stick to each other).
Pour about a 1/4 of the marinara sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish and spread evenly.
Next, transfer the ravioli with a slotted spoon (draining excess water) to the dish overlapping each other like so.
Once you have arranged your pasta, pour the remaining marinara on top and spread evenly.
Now you can go as light or heavy as you want on the cheese! First I sprinkled about 10/4 cup of shredded mozzarella, then about 1/4 cup of grated parmesan. Lastly, I sprinkled 3 tbsp. of Italian bread crumbs evenly on top of the cheese.
Place it in the oven and bake for about 20 min. or until cheese is melted. Serve this up with a side salad or bread sticks and dinner is done!
Let me know what you think and if you guys enjoyed this recipe.

Hello friends! As promised here’s the update for my July beauty finds.
Ok. First up…I love the gold infused mask! Whenever I use it my skin feels hydrated after and I notice a difference in the texture of my skin in the morning. My skin feels good and I have a dewy glow. Definitely a great find.
Next, the Almay eye makeup remover. I can’t complain. It’s quick, easy & doesn’t require a lot of “scrubbing/rubbing” which is great on the delicate eye area. I love that it doesn’t irritate my eyes. Great find and love that I got 2 for the price of one!
Lastly, the charcoal tooth whitener. I have to say I’m not that big a fan. Yes it does seem to make your smile appear brighter, but I didn’t notice a dramatic change in color. It’s also a bit messy. I have a regular tooth-brush and the over spray gets every where! If I had a battery-powered tooth brush maybe it wouldn’t be so messy, or if it was in a paste form. The good thing is it’s pretty easy to clean up and doesn’t stain so that’s a plus. Also, you get a ton of product and you only have to use a little. This will definitely last a good while. If you don’t mind a little clean up after using, then this product is alright. It was fun trying it out.
Hope this was helpful in some way and if not, at least entertaining!
