Peanut Butter Jelly time!

 Just made this cute little treasury!

 Go together like peanut butter and jelly!

Avery thinks these are so cool. She loves the idea of eating food with chopsticks...just not actual sushi, or "SHOOOSHI", as she calls it.


  • 2 tablespoons JIF® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons SMUCKER'S® Strawberry Jelly, Jam, or Preserves (pick your favorite)
  • 2 slices bread


  1. Remove crusts from bread. With a rolling pin or large soup can, completely flatten bread.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of Jif peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of Smucker's fruit spread on each slice of bread.
  3. Roll each slice into a tight spiral. Cut each spiral into 4 pieces.

"I'll eat you up...I LoVe you so! "

I found this video of Avery (It CrAcKs me up!!)  and thought...where has the time gone? I can't believe my baby is 3 1/2 (3 days ago).  
First childhood is over, and then your babies are growing up before you know it. Sometimes things like that make you stop and realize.
I love this song, and it fits with that thought.It makes me cry every time, but in a happy sort of way. Thought I would share in case you have not heard it! Very sweet!

I made this treasury of food related items . How could you not love it! Go forth and give it some love!

"Off with their Heads!!"

We just got Avery's Halloween costume, and couldn't be more in LOVE with it!!
She wanted to be Queen of Hearts, and we found this ADORABLE handmade costume.
She was quite the little model! What a priss! :)
I'm so excited to now offer a line of theses costumes at Avery Marie and Me Creations! Check them out at

Busy looking for Facebook groups that trade their handmade items. I will posting that soon. Christmas is rapidly approaching!! Yikes, gotta get a jump on it! If anyone knows of any good ones, let me know!

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

New!! MiXeD MeDiA Letters

I just added MiXeD MeDia letters to the ETSY (custom order site)
.BOO! for Halloween.....and TEAM letters are coming......starting with BAMA (houndstooth fabric and hand painted logo)...any suggestions or requests are welcomed, as always! I would love to hear what everyone would like to see! Of course Christmas is quickly approaching, so I will be working on that as well!
Avery is furiously adding to her Christmas list! SCREW you Nickelodeon!!
No, really...I can't wait! The weather is beautiful here in the boonies! I wish it would be like this all of the time (sunny and breezy...just warm enough to keep you comfortable....)AHHHH!!!

Something to ponder:
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12

Happy Sunday!!
