Halloween Party Invitations~!
Are you Prepared?

Catching Up.... ?

Oh my goodness! It's been a whirlwind and time has flown by! I am sorry I missed posting for a few days. I have been so busy it totally slipped my mind

Here is a Halloween Project that Lois and I created while she was here last week for a couple days its 3 small SU boxes adhered together and that cute candy corn paper is a strip all the way around and on the top layerd on some black cardstock.  The pumpkins and ghosts are from the Holiday catalog bundle: Fall fest with the coordinating framelit dies.

So easy to create with a bundle- no hand cutting!  #137622 bundle order number- page 46 of the Stampin Up!  Holiday Catalog.


And here is what I have done today- Monday

I am pouring votive candles- this batch is almost set so I can remove them add wicks and pour another batch-  the scent is an apple scent and not very strong.  These are emergency candles or to use when I run out of my yankee candles and can't get to town for more! lol

Candle making

I have also made 12 Taco Soup Meals in a jar. Just add this to  boiling water let simmer 30 min and dinner is served! I even used 1 jar for lunch today to prove to hubby (home sick) how good it really is!

I am offering this locally as a class- bring your own jar there will be a fee for contents and they can make as many as they want. It will be the first week of November, 2014  details with exact date and cost will be posted later this week and emailed out as well as posted on facebookand twitter.

I already have had to add a 2nd date as the first filled up immediately upon posting the photo on FB today!

these are NOT all of the ingredients I used either! I was so excited I just snapped a shot before it was all assembled- lol

I reconstituted my Thrive sour cream and put a dollup in the soup and it was delicious! in 1 hour I opened all my new cans shown in the photo, assembled them in order added measuring cups, teaspoons etc and in an hour I had 12 jars done and 4 phone calls !

I will be making more of these EASY fast types of meals for our pantry and I just finished the printed label for the top of the jar- oxy packet included makes this soup   "shelf stable" for 15 years!   you can order Thrive HERE

I used MDS to create the lid label- 

Taco soup labels-001I printed them directly from my computer to printer on full label sheet and I will punch them out our use my circle cutter and stick them to the top of each jar!  Now that I have this file, I can just change the dates (or leave them off to be hand written) and re-use for meal in a jar classes and my own future use. As delicious as this soup was for lunch today I know I will be making more to add to our pantry for winter!

If you didn't already guess, I am a prepper. I learned it from my mom as a kid and I love it!  I hope you are having a productive day also!
