Use this roll recipe to make your dough. You can use any roll recipe that you have. This is just the one that I use and love. TRIED AND TRUE!

I didn't actually make this. My friend Shelly had it in her ribbon box, but we paired it up with the cute Minnie Mouse onesies below.

What you will need is a canvas, a paper cutter, a saying or a picture, and modge podge.
1. Print out your picture and trim down to the exact size of the canvas.
2. Spread a layer of Modge Podge onto the canvas and lay the picture down. Make sure you have it even all the way around.
3. Push out any air bubbles in the paper and wait for it to dry. I only waited about 20 minutes.
4. Spread a thin layer of modge podge on top of the paper and let dry completely.
I roughed up the edges on this picture. I did that because I messed it up. I had just a teeny bit hanging over the edge of the canvas. I tried to trim it off and messed it up, so I roughed up the whole picture. I actually like the way it turned out.

But the kids sure do love them. Today I did a fun little craft with the 2-year-olds.
Easy and these guys did it well. I had to help little Miss Mia along, but Piper, who is almost 3 did really well by herself. The only thing I did for Piper was glue the eye's on.

(for some reason this plays funny on the blog. You may want to go to You Tube to watch it)
She is one of my very favorite people in all the world, and I don't even know her. She inspires me, makes me laugh, appreciate my life, and makes me want to be a better mother and wife. An all around better person. If you haven't seen this yet, you need to.
Thanks Stephanie for sharing your story and your life with us. You continue to inspire and lift others with your faith and your love of life.
Have a lovely Mother's Day weekend! You deserve it!

We used a egg to cut out the cookie shape and it was a bit smaller than the one on Bake It at 350. So we didn't have enough room to write popcorn on them. But they turned out way cute anyway.

We were supposed to take our kids to a movie for family home evening, but I didn't want to go. I was just frustrated. Anyone else have those days. I was trying to decided what to do, when an idea popped into my head.
I had my boys go and clean their room. Vacuum, put clothes away, and toy's too. They did a good job. That is the picture below.
Then I had them go outside and jump on the trampoline. And while they did that, I dumped out every toy in their room. I dumped out their dirty clothes and all of their shoes. Literally made a huge mess, everywhere!! It was liberating and stress relieving!
