Most wonderful craft bundle

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

I know it’s hard to talk about Christmas before Thanksgiving but us crafters need to be prepared.  In order to be ready with our DIY Christmas Gifts and new decor we need to start early.  In all honesty we probably start thinking about Christmas in the summer.

If you are still in the process of making gifts, or items to sell at craft fairs or online you will love this design bundle!  It is full of Christmas fonts, monogram frames, holiday cut files and so much more!  As with all the design bundles from DesignBundles.net your purchase comes with personal and commercial licenses.  So you are able to use all the wonderful elements in all your projects.

The Christmas Craft Bundle Vol. IIhttps://designbundles.net/the-christmas-craft-bundle-ii

One of the fonts I am super excited about is the Gingerbread font

Gingerbread Font

Handlettered fonts are so lovely and they are great for gift tags and cards. I love this one with all the swooshes.

If you are making loads of Christmas ornaments you will find loads of cut files to use on them.

They have also been kind enough to add a floating ornament template.  Easy to cut out using your Silhouette (or Cricut).

Hand lettering quotes to use as stencils on chalkboard, or even just printed will make quick DIY decorations.  Any number of these would also be great on shirts for the family.

And we all love a good monogram for the holidays! These would work well on those glass ornaments too.

There is so much more to be found in this bundle. You really need to go see it for yourself. Follow this link https://designbundles.net/the-christmas-craft-bundle-ii

The most amazing thing about this it the price! Product from over 40 designers are in this bundle.  There are so many items I can’t even list them all.  Individual items range in price from $3-$18, so in total this bundle is worth over $300!  But Desingbundles.net is offering it to you for the discounted price of $24!

A 93% discount.  But this discount won’t last forever. Get it before the time runs out, and so you still have time to get your gifts made.

Happy crafting!

Menu Plan Monday May 1st

 

Happy Monday!

I had thought I might spend some part of Sunday preparing a few more freezer meals from  Once A Month Meals.  But alas, the best laid plans of mice and men….

Saturday we had two baseball games at the same time and while helping with Sid’s I could feel the pain in my throat and burning in my lungs that told me I was not quite well.  I hate to say I am sick, as that never happens to me, but a little four-year old might have spread his germs to his mom.

So Sat evening I spent sleeping, Sun we had two birthday’s to celebrate so there went our day. No prepping for me. But not to worry, I still have items in the freezer to use.  But this Sun I will want to do some freezing as long as I can get to the store on Sat.

We have some rescheduling this week so there is baseball Mon, Tue & Thurs plus a grocery store trip. So I needed an easy meal on top of the freezer meals. Plus I know that I will be exhausted after work, since I am not entirely well.

 

What is on your menu board this week?

Menu Plan Monday April 24th

Happy Menu Plan Monday!!!

 

This Sunday we have to go to a birthday party which means I don’t have to cook dinner! Hooray! It is birthday party pizza for us!

My Once A Month Meals are going great and this weekend I plan on making some more for the freezer. However this week I feel like I have an issue because I don’t like to have the same type of meat two nights in a row. I have a freezer chicken and a freezer pork planned as well as a pork roast….So Wed was hard to determine.

The meal I figured for last night (Sun) got discarded and I made tortellini with meat sauce, so I didn’t want to make spaghetti, or another Italian dish….and I don’t really want to make tortellini again, but it is what I came up with. Maybe I will change my mind in the next couple days though….maybe I will make Korean Beef for us and something else for the kids…

Menu Plan Monday April 17th

 

Happy Monday! You know what Monday brings, right? Menu planning!

I realized after the fact that last Sun was Easter, and we had planes with family, so I kept the Sun menu choice the same for this week.

Monday (today) is my Hubs birthday and I am unsure of what he wants for dinner, because he won’t make a decision. But whatever he picks, the kids will be having chicken with mac & cheese.

Last week I used two of my freezer meals that I discussed in last week’s post and it worked out great!  I had prepared five dinners from  Once A Month Meals that made enough for two dinners each. That’s 10 dinners I don’t have to think, or prepare. Both baseball nights was super easy dinners. The boys were in the bath while I finished up dinner. One night I even put the dinner in the oven before we left, so I only had to boil some noodles when we got home!
