She's {kinda} Crafty Guest Post!

Hi Preppy & Pink readers! My name is Stacy and I am visiting today from She's{kinda}Crafty, a little blog where I try to simplify crafts and DIYs so that everyone can do them. Luckily, Preppy & Pink Stacy is only a little way up the interstate, so I didn't have to travel very far ;)

I want to share with you a very simple and fun Halloween craft/favor. You only need a little time, a couple of supplies, and a printer to complete this project.

small mason jars or other containers
caramel or candy corn
Pumpkin Teeth Labels (download for FREE here)
glue dots or double sided adhesive
paint - optional

1) Print out the Pumpkin Teeth printable on either white cardstock or 8.5X11" sticker paper which you can pick up in the office supply section of Walmart (10 sheets for $4.44).
2) Use a paper trimmer, scissors, or punch and cut the labels out to the size or shape you want.
3) Measure you jar with your ribbon and cut a length of ribbon that fits around your jar at the spot you want to apply your label.
4) Wrap ribbon around jar and glue into place with either a glue dot, double sided adhesive tape or by using the label to hold it in place if you've printed it out on sticker paper.
5) Glue the label in place on top of the ribbon if you've printed it out on card stock.
6) Optional - paint the lid of you jar. I used Martha Stewart's new glitter paint to give it a little extra sparkle. I always recommend a primer when you are painting on metal but it's not a must if you don't have the time or patience for it.

That's it! So simple, right? These would be great as party favors or for schoolmates, neighbors, the mail man...the list goes on and on!
As a special treat I have also designed a 2nd label for you to use instead of or with you Pumpkin Teeth - Vampire Fangs can be seen and downloaded here!

I hope you enjoyed my little Halloween craft and thanks for having me on Pink & Preppy today!

Happy Crafting,

I recently had the opportunity to make some goodies for a baby
shower for {soon to be}, baby Jake & his sweet mommy, Angela. 
Her co-workers wanted to do something a little special for her
before her "BIG" day arrives.

Miss Gracie B. started kindergarten today!!!  Of course this momentous occasion meant
 that we HAD to have an impromptu photo session a couple of days ago.
{Please excuse my lack of professional photography skills, and the fact that
the sun was ridiculously bright and in Gracie's eyes, oppsie!}

I was so excited when I stumbled upon this MoSt AmAzInG post over
at BIRD'S PARTY, and I just couldn't wait to share! With school starting
 back this week, and alarm clocks cranking back up, who couldn't use a
little PaRtY in their lives right about now?!?!
{actually, i will really come up with any excuse to eat cake, LoL}.

Isn't this just the cutest thing you have ever seen?

I had the privilege of styling a photo set for the CuTeSt 4 month old ever!!!
KatieBeth was so sweet and can you believe all of that hair?!?!?!
Her mom contacted me and was wanting to do something FUN for her session,
 so I decided on a pink and black set with some cute details!

Miss Gracie B. and I had a little extra time on our hands this past weekend,
and I decided to con her into an "impromptu" photo shoot {and by impromptu,
I mean informal, unplanned, unorganized, and me as the photographer! Yikes!!!!}
I quickly pulled together an outfit before Miss B. lost interest, scribbled a
little sidewalk art and.......VOILA!!!

First of all, let me apologize for the blog looking like a hot mess! We are currently in the
 process of updating some things and unfortunately it has taken longer than anticipated!
 Sooo.... with that being said, please overlook our dishevelment and know that
all will be tidied up soon!

Ok, now to the GooD StuFF!!!
I am so excited to share with you one of the projects that I have been working on

"Charlee" Lemonade tags tied on Mason Jars complete with pink and white paper straws!

My little graduate in her cap and gown!
{Just getting a little practice for the future in that "Carolina Blue"}

Miss Gracie on her last day of school! {Yes, that IS a "shiner" you see under her eye that
she acquired the night before when, as she put it, her bicycle "twisted" on her
sending her crashing to the pavement}
