{Fabulous Features} #18

You guys are super talented and I enjoy browsing all the ideas linked up each week to the Handmade Hangout Party. 

 Did you know that we have a Pinterest board set up just for the Handmade Hangout? All of the hostesses pin the ideas they feature and then other favorite projects. So be sure to check out the Handmade Hangout Pinterest board.

Thanks for linking up everyone!
Feel free to grab a Featured Button!!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!

My mom is flying in this weekend and I am prepping to head out of town for the next few weeks.
Travis will be gone for some training so the girls and I are headed to TN and my mom is coming to help with the drive back. I should be blogging while I am away but if I am quiet a day or two it is because I am busy with family and friends!
We will be celebrating Miss S turning 1 while we are away, which is totally crazy, so I have some fun posts coming up about her party.

Lit'l Smokies and Spinach Tartlets #BringHillshireHome

** I have been compensated for this post by Hillshire Brands™ through the Mom it Forward Blogger Network but opinions are 100% my own.**

 Can you believe that the holiday season is fast approaching? Gatherings with family and friends will occur and company will come visit, and with that comes serving delicious things to eat.

Today, I have a super yummy appetizer recipe for you that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Plus, it is easy! 

Mmmmmm... they are so good and no one would ever suspect they were made using Lit'l Smokies.
Plus, Lit'l Smokies are a great source of protein so you are making a healthy appetizer as well! 

Want to learn how to create these for yourself?
Of course you do!!

-Hillshire Brand- Hillshire Farm Beef Lit'l Smokies
-Crescent Rolls
-Onion (I used white onion but I think red would be delicious too)
-18 oz (small jar) Jar of Grape Jelly
-12 oz Jar of Chili Sauce

Witch Hat Fascinator

This post was previously shared at See Vanessa Craft on Oct. 2, 2014.

 I shared this project over at See Vanessa Craft for Vanessa's 30 Crafty Days of Halloween and wanted to share it with all of you as well!

 It is super cute and easy!
I thought I would make a Fascinator, you know, those small hats or head pieces you see people wear to Royal Weddings and what not in England, and a witch hat turned out to be the perfect fit! 

 Here is how you can make one for yourself! 

-12x12 sheet of black card stock paper
-Embellishments- ribbon, stickers, flowers, pic for creating a wreath, whatever you choose
-Double sided tape or  hot glue gun
-Cutting Machine- I used my Silhouette.
-Alligator Clips
-Thin piece of card board (cereal boxes work great!)
