Cute Cupcake Liner Storage with Elmer's Painters Paint Markers

While cleaning out my pantry......again.....last week I decided I needed something super cute to keep my super cute cupcake wrappers in.  While reorganizing I emptied out some cute glass canisters that would be PERFECT to keep my liners in.  But I didn't want just plain jars, that's no fun.  So......off to Walmart I went.
I came across these Elmer's Painters Paint Markers and knew EXACTLY what I was going to do.  I picked up a white with a "fine" point {it really isn't that fine of a tip but it got the job done}, I also picked up a set of pastels.  I love that I can get individual markers, I also love that they are only $1.97!
I love these markers and have used them before on a few other projects so I knew they would be great for what I had in mind.
I used the canister I already had and some stencils I recently purchased.  When working with glass make sure your stencils are a peel and stick or the paint will bleed.  Also make sure to wipe your surface with alcohol to remove any residue or fingerprints.
Peel the stencil off the baking and place on your canister.  I love the peel and stick because it allows you to reposition easily if you don't like the position.
Once you have the stencils where you want them, start painting!  Allow to dry then remove carefully, repeat if desired in other locations on your canister.
 I decided to cover my canister in cupcake cuteness, this entire process took about 20 minutes!  AWESOME!
I also decided to decorate a special dish for the girls to use for special occasions.  I read on a blog a few years ago about a family using a cute special dish for special occasions that the kids get to eat out of.  Good grades, birthday, baptism, etc.  I thought this was a GREAT idea and am excited to start this with my girls.
 I LOVE using the Elmer's Painters Paint Markers because I do not get paint every where, there is no mess and no clean up.  Such a time saver!  Plus, they are easy for my girls to use.  I also love that they are non-toxic and made in the USA!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
