Snowman in a Jar=Snowman Soup

I am absolutely in LOVE with Snowmen!  Hate snow, but love snowmen.  I'm thrilled it is  still Spring in Chicagoland, although I know it will become winter soon.

Anyway, like most of us I'm consistently looking for cute, individualized and inexpensive gifts.  My searching ended when I found Stef's  digi, "Snowman in a Jar".  

I love the idea of snowmen in a jar, but I wanted something more then a card.  How about Snowman Soup.  Most of us have all the ingredients in our home already.  Just need a jar and Stef's digi.

The back of the tag has a cute poem and the recipe for Snowman Soup,  head to Pinterest for the recipe and poem.  Pretty easy...  Chocolate powder, marshmallows, choc chips, and a candy cane.  

Until next week happy crafting.... Linda

Simply Sentiments Thursday, plus a little news.

Good Thursday Morning to you all!  The sun is shining, behind a cloud, so my eyes get a break, it is Thursday, Eddie is taking an End of Course Exam in Algebra, the Guardianship is working it's way through the system, Im looking for a job, and Ed has a Chorus Concert outside Publix tonite to benefit the Salvation Army tonite.  Whew, what a jam packed day!  But not so Jam Packed that SS flew by me this week!  Yep, starting to stay on top of things during this busy holiday season!  Oh by the way, My Christmas gift list shopping adventure is all over!  Im done!  This year it is scarves, beanies, hats, and whatnots, all handmade by little ole me!  Way  nicer than the stuff you could buy anyway!

On to the Sentiments for today!  Stef has three of them for you, two for Christmas (and yes they are on sale,) and one that cracked me up!

Here we go!

Im still laughing over this first one!  That Glitterbabe is a hoot and a half!  Short, Sweet and to the point!  Yep, we are from the same gene pool!

So there you go, just in time for those last minute cards, gift tags and whatnots!  And to think, I don't even have my Christmas Palm Tree Trio up yet!  Im still on the hunt for one!  Gotta have a decorated Palm Tree for Christmas.....This is Florida!

Well, I have a long laundry list of things to do today so I better get crackin, and yep, it does include the laundry.....These guys can wear more clothes than a pack of girls with unlimited credit cards!  Im serious!

So, while the washer spins, the dryer turns, (sounds like a soap opera, don't ya think!) I will be trying to get something else done!

Have a great Thursday and the rest of the week!
Catch you on the flip

Glitterbabe's Corner

yeah... i'm back!  not much going on other than the usual december madness... you know... getting ready for the holidays - that .... whew!!!!  i don't have to do.  small (very small) families can be a blessing at times - LOL.  no big shopping here.  but i do make some things to give as "help!  i need a gift... QUICK" kinda thingy.  anyway, that's off the beaten path.

have a few new releases today... and the SALE is still going on.  you can grab them (yep!  even the newbies) for HALF-PRICE!  holy mistletoe!!!!  so, here's to wetting (i know it's wHetting) your appetite...

 can also be used as a fancy flower... and layered!  (gosh i'm good LOL)

 come on!  santa's got his own line and who wants to see his dirty clothes anyway - LOL

wow!  maybe i can get FLOPPY to do a hot chocolate mug and we're good to go here?  oh! you can also add a greeting to the top of the mantle!

only TEN (10) DAYS LEFT on the sale and probably just as long to get those christmas cards in the mail.  hmmmm.... looks like i need to go shopping!

we, THE LATTE LADIES, have lots of sponsoships coming up in 2013 and we still have dates open.  soooooo, if you'd like us to sponsor your challenge, a blog hop, a special event... just drop ME (glitterbabe) an email.  we LOVE seeing all the amazing creations with our images!!!!

It's Fabulous Friday!

I don't know about you, but I'm really having a hard time picking out images to play with.  Floppy and Steph have done such a GREAT job.... I want them all.....

Remember...  The Eddie sale is still going on,  yep EVERYTHING is 1/2 off.  At that rate you can have all the new releases and a few more.  Then the problem is finding crafty time.....

                                                                 Polar Bear
                                    (hardest part was making the Tim Holtz snowflake)

                                                              Candy Cane Tag

Be sure to stop by next week....  I have a GREAT gift idea to share.  Until then, happy crafting.

Simply Sentiments, and a few important announcements!

Happy Thursday!  Yes, it is Simply Sentiments Thursday!  And Stef has two lovely ones for you!

 But before we get to those, I need to make a few announcements.  If you visited yesterday, you already know it is PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK!  This is the very last PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK, that I will be having.  As much as it pains me, due to the double and triple (on occasion) dipping, I am forced to discontinue it on a permanent basis.  Things are very tight for everyone, I know, believe me, I know.  And I know it is always wonderful for you all to pick exactly the freebie that you want, cause sometimes what I put up is not exactly want you would want for a freebie.  I get it.  After I did the report for October, on the PYF week, I gave away 2.5 times the number of freebies that I give away during the rest of the month.  And  this was due to two and three stamps taken on the coupon to total the $3.00.  Now, this may cause me to lose all kinds of customers, and get me a lot of bad press, but this is MY JOB, this is how I make money.  I love to give freebies, but I can't afford to give away the store once a month.  I am sure that you all understand where I am coming from.  I do hope that I have not offended anyone, but if I don't discontinue it, I would have to shut the store down due to lack of funds.  And that is something that I just cant see doing.  So, make sure that you pop in this week to PICK YOUR OWN FREEBIE!  Please, also choose only one, even though the coupon is worth $3.00 please only choose one.  Due to the sale, the coupon has to be set up this way so that if all you want is a free stamp, you can get one!


Also,  Manic Monday will be taking a vacation until the first of the New Year.  I do this every year to give me time to get stuff done during the Holidays, and with Eddie with me full time now, there is more to do than ever! (and I am so happy to do it!)  But, there will still be posts made at least 3 times a week, and special little things for you all during the Holidays!  Manic Monday will return on January 3, 2013, with a few changes, but it will be back!  Just fine tuning things so it is smooth sailing for us all.

Ok, enough of the business end of things.  Lets have a look at Stef's Sentiment offerings this week!

These sentiments are perfect for those last minute Christmas Cards and gift tags, and they are on Sale!  Yeppers, on sale for only .75 each!  What a deal!

Well, I hear the garage and all the packing boxes calling me!  And no one should envy me that job!  Two Van loads and one truck load of stuff, with still, two more loads to pick up!  Oy Vey, I didn't realize we had so much stuff!!!!!!!

I do hope that you pop over for the Pick Your Freebie week and grab that last minute image!

Linda is up tomorrow and she always has some great creations for you to look at!

If anyone has any questions concerning the special announcements, please email me at  I would be happy to hear all of your comments, concerns, questions, and yes, even complaints!  I will personally get back to you as quick as I can.

Hope to see all of you on Monday!

Ok, a few days late but Manic Monday turned into Wednesday has arrived!

Happy Hump Day everyone!  It has been a week so far, but I won't bore you with those details, just suffice it to say......I would really like Santa to bring me a Mercedes for Christmas......Not that he will, so I will amend that to, Santa, please bring me a reliable vehicle, automatic pls!  LOL!

Before I get off on one of my famous tangents, I must say a HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERY ONE that has purchased, donated, or both these past two weeks!  I only have to come up with 103$ to pay the attorney!  And I could not have even been half that close without all of you, so it is with all the love in my heart that I say THANK YOU!


Yes, I have had a few stress free moments and I have more New Releases to add to Stef's bounty!  So, Here We Go!

And I have 4 more that are in progress for this week as well! Since Im stuck now at home for moment (or days) we will see, I can concentrate on getting a few more done for you!

Now the fun stuff!
I told you that the wait would be worth it, and it is!  This is the LAST PICK YOUR FREEBIE!
I wanted this week to be fun for you all so now you get to browse the shop, to see if there is anything that you missed earlier and PICK YOUR FREEBIE! (I do ask that you only choose 1 freebie, even though the coupon is for $3.00.  I had to set it up this way because of the Eddie's Sale going on.)  
And your PICK YOUR FREEBIE CODE IS:      MM1128  Your code is valid until December 4th!  Yep, I was late and you all are not gonna be shorted!

I know how you guys just love to pick, so have at it and have a good time!  I do this because I love to, but it is also my job and I hope to be able to continue this for many many years!

Ok, got to draw so I can beat Stef on the number of New Releases....right now she is ahead of me and oh  my, I just can not have that!  LOL, she knows I love her more than butter!

I hope each and every one of you have a great rest of the week, getting ready for yet another holiday!

now how fun are these?

well, i'm keeping this short and sweet.  tomorrow is SIMPLY SENTIMENTS THURSDAY, so be on the lookout for another double whammy on the sentiments!

FLOPPY is busy, busy, busy with everything that's been going on in her life lately, and i'm actually busy with holiday stuff... which, if you know me at all.... i'm the BAH HUMBUG person in the group here.  surprisingly... i'm actually in a good holiday mood this year.... GO GLITTERBABE!!!!!  anywho... here's a little something to put a smile on your face and get you ready for the holidays....

Christmas Cake


* 2 cups flour
* 1 stick butter
* 1 cup of water
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 cup of brown sugar
* Lemon juice
* 4 large eggs
* Nuts
* 1 bottle tequila
* 2 cups of dried fruit

Sample the tequila to check quality.  Take a large bowl, check the
tequila again.  To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level
cup and drink.  Repeat. 

Turn on the electric mixer.  Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy
bowl.  Add one teaspoon of sugar.  Beat again. 

At this point it's best to make sure the tequila is still OK.  Try
another cup...  Just in case.  Turn off the mixer thingy.  Break 2 eggs
and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit up off floor.  Mix on the turner.  If the fried
druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the tequila to check for tonsisticity.  

Next, sift two cups of salt...  Or shumething.  Check the tequila.  Now
shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.  Add one table.  Add a spoon
of sugar, or some fink.  Whatever you can find. 

Greash the oven.  Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall
over.  Don't forget to beat off the turner.  Finally, finish the tequila
and wipe counter with the cat.

Bingle Jells!

Manic Monday Here Again....Updates and New Products!

Hi and Happy Manic Monday to you all!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was a mixed bag.  We had the Memorial Service for Mike, and that was the toughest part.  We took My Sister, Erin, our Adopted Brother (not really, but it makes him feel good) Tommy Jo, My Mom and her husband, myself and Mark on a little fishing adventure over to the seawall for a time.  Yep, we caught Lady Fish, a skate (type of ray) a pin fish and a ton of laughs!  Just trying to make a great memory for the Ed Man!  He is presently staying with his Auntie Erin for the week whilst we make the dreaded journey back to Cold Kentucky to retrieve the rest of our household goods! (the stuff I really needed got left behind...gonna blame the help lol!)  So we will be out of pocket Tuesday thru Friday.  I really dread the journey as I really didn't want to have to go back there. But alas, I must, so I shall, and I will smile the entire time, unless I get too cold and Sir Markus forgets to make regular coffee stops!  (he wont but Im just sayin!)

Here is the update on the Fiduciary Guardianship Filing:  Money Raised:  202.00
Money Spent:  November 15th:  $100 to McGuire Law Offices.
                       November 19th:  $100 to McGuire Law Offices

We still have $300 to go before the filing but he is temporarily putting a hold on anything that may be filed by someone other than myself.  So I still have a ways to go, but we will make it I am sure of it!

I want to say a Huge THANK YOU to everyone that has purchased, donated, or both because you just don't know how much it is appreciated!  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Ohhh, I have a few new goodies today.   Some paper packs that are simply gorgeous and a new set of christmas bells for you!

Here we go!

Pretty Pretty!

And yes, I do have your Manic Monday for you as well!  Nope, won't keep you waiting!

Berry Wreath!

Now, I have it set to free in the store, but you will see a price on the info page, and you will also see a Pink Free tag on it.  Once you put it in your cart, it will show as free, nothing else required.  I am trying this out as the system is giving me fits on restricting coupons and setting limits on the freebies.    So I think this way will work out until I can devise a new system.  I do apologize for changing it up so much, but I have to find the way that it will work best.

Anywho, this am, we are off to get a tire, change the oil in Maude (the van) wash a bit of clothes, grab a bite to eat and prepare for the journey.  I have to find my long pants and thermals,  havent seen jeans since I have been here and I have a flip flop tan on my feet!  Yes, a TAN on my feet in the middle of November, gotta love that!

So, with a big Thanks from all of us at Floppy Latte, we will see you on Wednesday!

Catch you on the Flip!
