Monday Made It...yummies and craftiness

It's that time again for Monday Made It with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics.  Yippee!
Thank you, Tara for hostin' my all time favorite linky!

 I am includin' previous yummies and craftiness projects because I did not have a blog last Thanksgiving/Christmas.  They are oldies, but goodies and perfect for the fast approachin' holidays.  Can you tell I'm ready for them to hurry up?  I can't wait to spend the holidays with my family in California...3 weeks total!  YAY!

  Most of these were Pinspired with easy to follow directions.  I've included the link to the pins to give credit where credit is due.

 Cheesecake stuffed strawberries.  These remind me of little Santa hats.

 Dried beans in a clear container with a candle for decoration.
This really could not be any easier.

Zaya Rum water in it, refrigerate, and use it as a water pitcher.
 I have to give credit to my Mommy for this one since she is the genius behind this idea.  

 Chocolate acorns. Super fast and yum!

 Pumpkin shaped cheese ball.  I love cheese.

Rose(my last name) shaped cranberry salad.  I bought my Nitty this rose mold several years ago.  It's a Thanksgiving tradition now on our table.

 Scrapbook paper Christmas tree.
Attach cut outs to a paper mache tree by startin' from the bottom and workin' your way up.
This is a great "in front of T.V." craft.

Wine cork Christmas tree.
The perks of your family bein' in the wine business.
 Lots of corks waitin' to be used for cute projects.   

Sequined Christmas ornaments.  
These are my absolute favorite project to make.  Find out how here.

Here are some cute Christmas notepads I whipped up...this summer! Haha!

I'm so excited that I have today off to read everyone else's Monday Made's a perfect excuse to stay in my jammies for blog stalkin' all day and get inspired about all the awesomeness!


  1. I JUST pinned wine cork Christmas trees on pinterest yesterday! My sister's kitchen is all wine themed and I thought they would be perfect for her. Your's turned out great! Can't wait to try my own!


    1. Thank you! They were fairly easy to make. I only burned my fingers a few times with the hot glue gun...which is pretty standard for me. I've also made wine cork magnets. I cut the corks lengthwise and put a magnetic strip on the back. They are cute!

  2. I absolutely love your sequined Santa ornament! I wish I had enough of those kinds of ornaments to do my entire tree with them!

  3. I am in absolute awe of your pumpkin-shaped cheese ball. That's amazing! Cheese is my favorite food, especially cheese balls! Nothing says the holidays like a cheese ball.

    You are quite the crafty woman! I simply love that Santa ornament and those notepads are a-dor-a-ble. Yay for you, lady.

    I also need to get my hands on these question cards. Are these like those task cards I keep hearing about? I'm not familiar with the task cards thing; I think they are common core related. Are they?
