Cupcake Spa Socks - Zero Calories

I was going to a craft fair and wanted to have something unique to show.  I decided to create cupcakes using spa socks/microfiber socks.  I used the Stampin' Up! Designer Series papers and created a template for a cupcake wrapper.  Then I used a Stampin' Up! Punch to create a "cherry on top" using the same designer paper and a toothpick.  Below is a picture of some of the spa sock cupcakes and then the craft fair set-up as well.  I met some great people and look forward to being their Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  If you are interested in learning how to make these great cupcakes, please view the video below.  If you would like to order any Stampin' Up! products, feel free to visit my website at www.jeanpiersanti.stampinup.net to place your online order.

Send a Hand Stamped Card to a Hero!

Holiday Mail for Heroes Program Overview

The holiday season is just around the corner and it’s time again to start thinking about being part of the 2011 American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes. For a fifth year, American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are partnering to ensure all Americans have an opportunity to send a touch of home this holiday season to members of our U.S. military, veterans and their families, many of whom will be far away from home this holiday season.
Starting this fall and throughout the holiday season, the Red Cross is working with Pitney Bowes, a mail stream technology company, to collect and distribute holiday cards to American service members, veterans and their families in the United States and around the world.
The process is very simple and takes no time at all - All you need is a pen and piece of paper to share your appreciation for the sacrifices members of the U.S. Armed Forces make to protect our freedoms The Holiday Mail for Heroes mail box is open and ready to receive for your cards. Please send all mail to:
Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Sending a “touch of home” to American men and women who serve our country is the perfect way to express your appreciation and support during the holiday season.

Card Guidelines:
Every card received will be screened for hazardous materials by Pitney Bowes and then reviewed by Red Cross volunteers working around the country.
Please observe the following guidelines to ensure a quick reviewing process:

  • All cards being sent in for 2011 Holiday Mail For Heroes program should be postmarked no later than Friday, December 9, 2011.
  • Ensure that all cards are signed.
  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program.
  • Only cards are being accepted. Do not send letters.
  • Do not include email or home addresses on the cards, as the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
  • Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos, as these items will be removed during the reviewing process.
  • We encourage participants to mail as many cards as they are comfortable sending. If you are mailing a large quantity, please bundle the cards and place them in large mailing envelopes or use a flat rate box from the post office. Each card does not need its own envelope, as cards will be removed from all envelopes before distribution.
  • Please refrain from sending holiday cards with glitter. Many of these cards will be delivered to military and veterans medical facilities and the glitter could interfere with a patient's recovery.

A very warm and sincere Thank You to my Lord and Savior, for reminding me, that I am

Left Over Scrabble Tiles - More Gifts

Wondering what to do with those left over Scrabble tiles after you have made you gift?  Well, here is what I have done.  Purchase buttons and a frame and glued a heart made out of buttons onto some Stampin' Up! specialty papers (buttons, papers and glue can be found on my website at www.jeanpiersanti.stampinup.net) and used the scrabble tiles L-O-V-E and glued them to an frame I purchased for 50 cents in the bargain bin at Staples.  I still have more frames and more tiles left over, so many gifts can be made for so little. ~Living the Fairy Tale Life~

Great Gift Idea

Great holiday gift idea.  Inexpensive - Get out your Scrabble Game and arrange tiles with family names.  Take a picture, print and frame. Obviously, can be used over and over again and can still be used for its intended game.  Or you can go a little more costly - Rather than taking a picture, actually glue the pieces in place, and give the entire board as a gift, either framed or unframed. Perfect for anyone you know that has a game room or a couples engagement or wedding gift.  So many different ideas.  Also great for scrapbook pages... You are only limited by your imagination!  I found this set at a garage sale, only used once for $2.00 ~Living the Fairy Tale Life~
