I am in love with a printable I found on the blog recently for a monogrammed label for your iPhone charger. If you are like me and live with more than one person that owns an iPhone, you can never know where your’s is because they all look alike. Well, here is an end to that problem. You can customize your own label and end all that foolishness. Here is the link to the printable –

Have fun customizing your labels.  Hope you enjoy the blog and until next time, Happy crafting!

Asterisk The season is getting ready to change!

Can you believe it is that time again?  Fall will be here before you know it.  Gone are the long summer nights and lazy days.  It is time to start thinking about sprucing up the house for the holidays and getting together with family and friends to celebrate being thankful.

I just want to encourage you while you are thinking about how the house will look, consider how the house will smell! Scents evoke all kinds of memories, moods, and feelings. What is it that you want your guest to remember or feel when leaving your house?

I recently came across a new product that might help you while you are planning.  It is the new Glade Expressions Oil diffuser. It has a great look that would compliment any decor and the scents are fabulous – not too overwhelming. You can find them at most local retailers like Target and Wal-Mart. I just purchased the Apple scent which I will soon be trying. I think it will be great for the fall.

Until next time, Happy Soon to Be Fall!!
