LDS November Visiting Teaching Message and Treat

Just finished making our Visiting Teaching Message for November, and I couldn't wait to share! Each little sack is filled with a Heath candy bar, snugly wrapped up in one of our paper doilies, with a neatly folded visiting teaching message. They are now ready for pick up in the store or online. Group your orders together to save on postage ($2.99 each)!
 The message this month is from Elder Dube's inspiring October LDS General Conference talk, entitled Look Ahead and Believe. Feel free to remove the message to use as a simple "pick-me-up" for a much loved friend!

THANK YOU Pinterest!

Sometimes with Pinterest, I get so busy gathering that I don't actually try to make anything. But I have had this in my head all season long. Chicken pot pie weather is here!
Sunday night I made individual Chicken Pot Pies for everyone... using the Pioneer Woman's recipe (perfection), although I did add some potatoes. I also added pie crust legs and some sliced black olive for eyes. Yum!
Nothing says fall like Chicken Pot Pie!

Find this idea on our Pinterest pin board here

What's your family's favorite fall recipe?

Beautiful Fall Leaf Garland : Paper Crafts

I am so excited to share the latest garland we've made! If you enjoy fall as much as I do, you will love this beautiful fall leaf garland. I was inspired to create it after watching the maple trees near my home turn colors. At their height, some of them literally seem to glow. It's mesmerizing!
This garland is made up of 105, 3.5" paper leaves. Total, there are 7 different assorted fall colors in each kit. All leaves are made from premium textured cardstock. I especially like how long it is...30 feet! You'll have plenty of length to hang it up just about anywhere. I think the crinkled leaves give it an authentic fall look. Its' simple assembly makes it an easy fall project (should take you no more than 20 minutes). I love how it came together and hope you do too!

Acorn Banner

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I was able to winterize the garden and play with the family, so I am feeling energized and ready to go. Have any of you bought your Halloween pumpkins yet? I'm kicking the week off with my brand new Acorn Banner
This banner's design is simple, crafty and a completely new style for me. I especially love the gold-glittered edging along the acorn caps coupled with the natural twine. These help create its' charming, playful feel...don't you think? Once hung, this banner could easily be left up for the whole fall season.

Our newest fall wood craft is a definite crowd pleaser. Don't you just love this guys little face?
I am in love with the four coordinating paper patterns used in this kit! Beautifully designed, the colors are neutral enough to match any color scheme, yet festive enough for fall. Also, it is only an easy 60 minute project (we like to keep things easy around here)!

Thanksgiving Friends

It may not even be Halloween yet, but inside the shop and late into the night we are busy creating for Thanksgiving. So far we've made a utensil pocketbanners, and a beautiful Thanksgiving sampler.  We also have several fall wood crafts available. Todays post is about another one of my favorite fall wood creations. These Thanksgiving Friends are or so cute, don't you think?
The wood and supplies to make these guys are now available and you have three purchase options. You can either buy the unfinished wood kit or the unfinished wood kit and supplies (for crafters like me who to make it themselves). Or, let us do the work for you and buy it pre-made (a nice option if you are short on time). I anticipate a more Thanksgiving/Fall creations to come your way in the weeks to come, so look for them. Meanwhile, get our wood in your hands and start dreaming of these easy to create projects!

By the way...what is your favorite Pebbles fall creation?

New Dictionary Print Banners

It has been fun putting together new custom banners for this holiday season. I wanted to make a few that were more simple in design, shape and color. Here are two of my latest creations.

What I love about this banner is its' country charm. Can't you see this hung over a Thanksgiving table or along a hearth?  The pennants are hand-stamped and made with dictionary paper.

This banner's design makes it perfect as a background decoration for any harvest themed party. Its' pennants are made from dictionary paper as well, yet are more narrow. Simple and charming, don't you think?

Personalize The Season : Customized Tags

Happy Friday everyone!  I can't wait to get out and enjoy some of the weather before it gets too cold. In the past 2 days I've spotted several pumpkin "for sale" stands and the colors outside are simply glorious! Fall is here and I intend to enjoy every minute of it. Today I am sharing 3 unique tags created to help you personalize this holiday season.
Make a really cute "gratitude tree" with these Photo Kraft Dictionary Tags and some paper leaf cut-outs. Simply collect branches, cut out leaves, make tags and assemble!
"Give Thanks In All Things".  These darling little Pumpkin Tags make perfect gratitude notes on a Thanksgiving table.  Ask your guests to take a minute and jot down something they are grateful for! 
For a blast from the past, use these Polaroid Frames to create memorable frames for your pictures. I especially like to use these as frames for pictures of my family's earlier years.

The way I see it, any type of holiday decor is much more interesting when personalized. It makes everyone feel welcome and remembered.  Who doesn't love that?

Fall Samplers

Happy October 1st everyone!  Are your Halloween decorations up yet?  I can't wait to see all my little grandkids running around, dressed up in their costumes.  To celebrate the season, I've just released two special Fall Samplers; one for Halloween and one for Thanksgiving.

These exclusive 8 x 10 prints are printed on 8.5 x 11 ledger-aged card stock. Each sampler is also available as a 12 x 12 sheet of 3 x 4 cards.   Follow the links below to order.

Thanksgiving Sampler | 8 x 10 sheet     12 x 12 sheet of 3 x 4 cards     Silhouette pattern
Halloween Sampler     | 8 x 10 sheet     12 x 12 sheet of 3 x 4 cards     Silhouette pattern

I like to mount mine inside a frame, which has been spray-painted with a coordinating color. I usually pick my frames up from a local thrift store. The smaller cards look great when hung from our Basic Dictionary Print Memory Banner...a perfect way to display your family photos throughout the holidays.

Happy Labor Day...Hello Fall

Happy Labor Day!  It is now the "official" start of fall.  Don't you love this time of year?  Leaves turning colors, kids heading back to school, the smell in the air...fall is slowly creeping up on us and my creations are reflecting this.  For example, these cute little pumpkin ornaments!

True to our Pebbles style, these are incredibly easy and fun to make.  Simply curl green strip with round object (like a pencil).  Then, place 3 circles on top of each other, lining the scalloped edges up.  Fold the pumpkin stem in half and place on top with the curly stem tucked underneath it as shown.  Then, sew a straight seam down the middle, reinforcing at the beginning and end (begin with extra thread on top for hanging).  Trim bottom thread and tie the top threads into a 1/2" knot for hanging.  These are especially beautiful when hung from a natural or black spray-painted tree branch!  Check the links below for ordering.

we welcome wood

We are excited to bring wood into Pebbles in my Pocket... this cute little owl is our start and we will add more quite often. We all have our favorite printed papers and so I thought it best to just sell the plain wood and you can pick your own paper, either from our website or from your stock at home. I am working on an easy tuturial for you that I will post on the blog in the next day or two. As I drew up my first pattern for you, it felt a bit awkward, but as I started working with the wood again, the ideas are starting to pop in my head. This will be a fun project and the wood will be available for you at our store and online here.

This is our first wood giveaway to help spread the news...           LIKE and CLICK SHARE on facebook to your crafty friends anytime today through Monday November 5 and we will randomly select a winner of our woodsy owl. We will have a FREE giveaway for each new pattern we release. You can find our facebook page here. Thank you and happy sharing!!!

Have a wonderful day!
