Christmas Craftiness

I know. No post for months and now 3 in a row. I can't even explain it myself.
So, we (me) are in charge of the McCarrel Family Christmas Party this year. I have been thinking about it since midnight October 31st. I would like to have it all planned and ready by the end of this month. I have visions of how it will all be, and while it probably won't turn out as I picture it in my head, I am getting a good start. My first vision was of a dessert and hot chocolate bar with a cute banner hanging over the tables. I finished the banner today and couldn't wait to show it off!

Thank you mother for my Cricut machine and thanks to my sweet neighbor Emily for the use of her cute cartiridges. Bonus, I can hang it in my house until the night of the party!

Young Women In Excellence

Last night we had our Young Women In Excellence program. It was lovely! Our theme was "Personal Progress: A Pattern for Life", we had 2 wonderful speakers and of course, our fantastic young women and their displays.
We got ideas from HERE, HERE, and HERE. Also big thanks to The Quilting Cottage in American Fork for loaning us some wonderful bolts of fabric! Check them out on facebook :)

Happy Halloween!

May I present to you, in no particular order, our 2011 Halloween. It includes a Smartie Pants, a Jack Skellington pumpkin, a zombie hunter, a deer pumpkin, a polka dot pumpkin and an adorable Dorothy. Now, would you people kindly stop complaining that I never post!
