- I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

This year I will be focusing on making as many gifts as possible with paper or at least "junked" up and looking fabulous with paper!
I used to be the "baker extraoridinaire" for Christmas time, but, this year it's looking very cost prohibitive. Have any of you checked the price of flour lately!?! WOWZA!!
Out here in the country, we still make ice cream and snow cones out of real snow. (Now for you city folks, crushed or shaved ice works well too.) So, I thought this would be a fun gift for the neighbor kids, that is of course, if mine don't find it first!
I found the bottles at Michaels in the cake decorating section and the recipe came from the internet. (Do a search on "snow cone syrup recipe") The box and bottle are decorated with Holly Flourishes, Mini-bet, and sayings built from the Just-Rite Stamper products.
