October 1st is Homemade Cookie Day!

Which is too cool, like we needed any more things to celebrate in October right?
But Homemade cookie day, I can get on that train :)
I am trying to post a Fall recipe or Craft everyday of October,
either on here (crafts) or on my other blog- One Step at a Time (cooking).
So since it's Homemade Cookie Day I found a October appropriate recipe of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Sandwiches and posted about them
-> Here <- Enjoy! :) :) :)

Knifty Knitter

My girls love these tools, they are perfect for children, or for the knitting challenged like me.
Miss K age 7 and Miss B age 9 have both gotten really good at this, Miss M age 4 needs a little help but she loves doing it.

This is Miss K's second project, a scarf for her baby doll-

Her first project was a hat for her baby cousin.

Here is Miss B working on a scarf for a friend-

These little handy tools are called Knifty Knitter Looms, they are made by Provo Craft. Here is a link to Joann Fabric, that's where I got all mine so that I could use a 40% off coupon on them :)
And here a few links to sites with patterns for these wonderful tools-

I have made some scarfs for gifts using this, and there are so many fun patterns I would love to try...... if only I could get them away from the girls long enough to make one! Maybe I just need to go pick up a couple more ;)

Fairy Princess Bath Dust

This is a fun project that you can make for your kids, or if you have older ones they could make this them selves. This would make a great simple gift for a friend.

Fairy Princess Bath Dust
1/2c. baking soda
1/4c. epsom salts
5-10 drops vanilla, raspberry or any smell you like extract.

Place all ingred. in order listed into the bowl of a food processor, pulse until finely ground. Put into a container with a lid that it can be sprinkled out of, I found these at the Dollar Store. Then decorate your container.
