Why hello there!

Wow, I have not updated my blog in over a week. I had such a busy season, that things were piling up around the house and not to mention my accounting needed some serious attention. Pete is an excellent assistant and all, but his lack of opposable thumbs doesn't help for my office tasks. He did a great job making sure I got breaks, where we spent time in the yard in his new pool--just in time for summer! Whoever says that terriers are not fans of water, has not met my dog. You can't keep him out of the pool.

It has been nice to sit back and relax! For the last few months, my nights have been jam packed with getting proofs out and packing up orders. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining. In a few short weeks, things will amp back up for my fall brides. I'm excited to announce that with that will come a few more new designs. I can't wait to share them with you.

With Fall in mind, check out these ADORABLE DIY S'more favors from Project Wedding. How cute would these be at an outdoor wedding. Throw a couple of firepits out and let your guests make their own s'mores. Or, send them home with the kits--they're sure to be enjoyed!

1. Hershey's Chocolate Bars
2. Graham Crackers
3. Marshmallows
4. Wire Hangers
5. Cellophane Bags in 3 Sizes
6. Adhesive Paper and Cardstock
7. Labels and Instructions design (downloadable pdfs right here and here.)
8. Kraft Box with Lid 4.75" x 6" x 2.5"
9. Tissue
10. Ribbon
11. Scissors
12. Wire Cutter

Remove the marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers from their original packaging and put them in cellophane bags. Here we put six graham cracker squares in a 4" x 6" bag, Three chocolate squares in a 5" x 3" bag, and about 10 marshmallows in a 5.5" x 8" bag.

With the wire cutters, cut off the head of the hanger and then bend the hanger in fourths so it fits the length of the box. Secure it with ribbon. (these will serve as your skewers to roast your marshmallows--how clever!)

Print out the labels on adhesive paper and instructions on cardstock and cut them out. Fold up the instructions.

Lining the box with a piece of tissue, assemble the marshmallows, crackers, chocolate, instructions and hanger in the box.

Adhere the label to the box lid and voila! A S'mores Kit!
