Paper Pumpkin is for Family

Looking for fun projects the kids can do on their own or with minimal help from you? Paper Pumpkin is your answer! Kits are appropriate for all ages from early elementary school kids to working adults needing a little fun break to retired folks that are young at heart.

Paper Pumpkin is a paper crafting kit that is delivered directly to your mailbox. Give the kids the task of picking up the mail. They will be pleasantly surprised to find a box waiting for them towards the end of the third week of the month.

The April kit is focused around the idea of making connections with family. Watch the short video and keep your eyes peeled for a sneak peek of the design.

Here is the video for the March kit showing assembly in fast motion.

The project design is always a secret to help with the fun surprise. But, they have been giving clues as to what is in the box lately. So we know the April kit will be greeting card designs.

FAQ’s: Your first box comes with a clear acrylic block to mount the stamps on. Reuse the block with future kits so don’t throw it out! Boxes start shipping on the 11th of each month. So you have until the 10th of each month to order subscriptions or skip a month in your subscription. The deadline to sign up to receive the April kit is April 10th.

Here are the subscription prices. Purchase the 12 month option for the lowest price of about $22 per box, depending on the tax in your area.

Keep Calm and Wag On Driveway Card and Catalog Stand

Our annual catalog cycle ends on May 31st. I realized I may have catalogs left after the catalog cycle ends since we are Staying Safer at Home. As I was making new piles from old piles in my stamp room, I figured out a way to share with my neighbors even if we can’t gather or don’t know each other personally. I created packages of 3 cards with a plush concord crush bow. Some of the bags had an annual catalog. Here is my stand.

Hope you enjoy mailing a few cards on me!

Today is last day of Sale-a-bration promotion

Good Morning! As I enter my third week of Staying Safer at Home, I can tell you the dust bunnies are definitely not safer at home. Two rooms are spring cleaned and awaiting a sunny day to clean the carpets. I am slowly working on organizing my stamp room: straightening piles, creating greeting cards to send and peering into shelf corners with an eye to share supplies with those that may need a little pick me up.

As you have worked on your to do list as I have, you may not have noticed that the end of Sale-a-bration quickly approached. And today it is here. The last day to take advantage of earning free products through either placing an order at my online store or signing up to be a demonstrator on my team. Doing either action will infuse some creativity to your life. Products are shipped directly to your front door from Utah where most of our products are made. When you place an order or sign up to be demonstrator, please make sure my name is in the upper corner of the screen so I get credit for your order or so that you are signing up with me.

Now here are some pretty photo of projects made using some of the Sale-a-bration free products with purchase.

The embossed vellum paper is particularly nice and comes in an assorted, three color pack.

Quinoa Tuna Bites aka What’s for Dinner

I shared a potato pancake recipe a few days ago. Along side those pancakes were quinoa tuna bites. I originally created the bites at a paper crafting retreat about a year ago. Click here for the other yummies that were served with that meal.

Here is the recipe in case you want to try it. This recipe is a little different from the original since it makes a smaller quantity. It makes enough patties for about 4 meals.

Tuna Quinoa Bites

1 – 12 oz can tuna in water, drained really well

1 tsp Penzey’s Adobo seasoning or your choice of seasoning (Penzey’s sweet curry was in the original recipe)

about 1/4 cup cooked onion

1 large egg

about 1/2 cup cooked quinoa

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding more or less quinoa so the mixture is slightly wet.

Fry on both sides in extra virgin olive oil and serve hot. I tried frying in coconut oil this time and that worked well. Those patties had a slight coconut flavor. I would use the coconut oil again:)

I cook 1 cup of quinoa and use it for other dishes. Yesterday I sauteed about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with green beans. Added some cooked quinoa, cashews and curry powder to make a quick meal. Today, the quinoa went in a mug of chicken stock with leftover chicken and lots of garlic powder to make a warming mug of quick soup.

I’ll share more recipes to help you make something delicious too. So check back soon!
