Crafting Party Sponsored by BIC-Mark It

I recently had the opportunity to host a crafting party through The Hosties and sponsored by BIC Mark-It.  In the mail we received a box full of BIC Mark-It markers, both a package of 36 assortment and 2 large bags of Fandango Pink and Playful Purple.  How fun!!  The package of 36 markers is designed with purpose in mind.  It opens like a tri-fold and lays flat.  I was totally expecting to just open the package and have the markers spill out all over.  Kudos to BIC for the package design!

Since we are highly involved in 4-H and the community, we decided to make cards for servicemen and women and perhaps a local retirement home as a service project.  The BIC markers worked perfectly for the cards.  I would definitely recommend them.


Everyone joked that this card my daughter made is Santa with a trash bag... instead of Ho Ho Ho, he says Hefty Hefty Hefty!!  :D  I think it's adorable!!
All in all we got several cards done and managed to make some Christmas gift tags as well!  If you would like to learn more about The Hosties or BIC, please click here:

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
