Baking All Dressed Up!

Today I want to share with you how I took some baking and dressed it up to be an adorable little welcome home gift for my grandmother!

I absolutely love baking – but the problem is that I’m the only one in my house who really loves eating yummy baked goods. If I bake a cake, it means I’m eating almost a whole cake to my self. So, how I stop myself from eating too many cakes all to myself is I bake cupcakes or split my batter into smaller cake tins so that I can gift some of my baking!

Meet Us Monday: Amy Crandall

Hi all!  My name is Amy Crandall and I am a distribution specialist, which consists of being a machine operator, bookmaker, shipper, and miscellaneous office duties.  I joined Creative Memories in 2002, Valentine’s day to be exact.

Picking, packing, and shipping your orders is one of my daily duties.  I also run a few of the machines that create the components of your albums before we put them together with tender loving care.  We have a small crew, but we go where the work is, flexing to different areas to get the work done.  It’s my “at work family” and I wouldn’t trade them for anything!  My twin sister, Beth, also works within our small team.  And we actually get along…lol!

Painted Harvest Thanksgiving Tablescape

In Canada we are looking forward to turkey, pumpkin pie, and special time spent with family and friends this upcoming weekend!

Painted Harvest is such a stunning product collection, I couldn’t help but use some to spruce up my kitchen table for Thanksgiving.

I enjoy adding a personal touch into my home decor. I find a very easy and economical way to do it is through papercrafting! With a small amount of designer paper, some cardstock, a punch or two, a few ABC/123 stickers, and adhesive you’re all set!
