Family Gift: September Box
Quick family update a lot of you have been asking if we are alive and ok. Yes we are after last year I am just plain exhausted physically because of my RA disease and we both just got run down. So we took the summer off to just recoup and sleep a lot in between all the busyness besides. lol My dad is doing good he had a check-up and he is on track except for he is in a lot of pain still but otherwise he got a good report and now it's just adjusting to not using his arm like a normal. He still can't lift a gallon of milk and is on weight restrictions.
But I am back now working full time on everything! Next few weeks I'll be playing catch up on my blogging. I'll be posting my upcoming online fall classes, customer promotions, finish sharing the year gifts I created, sharing my December Daily (I am going to get that done if it kills me! lol) and much, much more! Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy!
This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.
At the beginning of each month; each family had a box to open on the first of the month besides the random days we picked out of each month. In this month box is a fact sheet we put together about the month it includes the following: the history of the month's name, historical things that happened for the month on select dates, and what the month is know for. (It's pretty cool as I am a huge history buff so I love these sheets we created!) Each month is also know for a lot of things so we just picked a few things that we thought would be fun to learn about. September Box features the following; Chicken Month, National Honey Month, and Fall Begins.
What we did:
National Honey Month: For this right way I know I would do a bottle of honey and decorate it with a tag somehow and this is what I came up with. I printed out National Honey Month onto Whisper White card stock then zipped the card stock through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the retired Tags & Labels Framelits. I took the bee stamp from Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set item#142924 and stamped the bee above the words using the Memento Black Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and Crushed Curry Ink Pad. I used Solid Basic Black Backer's Twine to attach the tag to the bottle of honey.
This set worked great for National Honey Month! It is called Dragonfly Dreams and it is a Photpolymer Stamp Set.
For Fall Begins: I created a bucket list of things to do for the month of September. I printed it out onto White card stock and stamped leaves all around the edges in fall colors using the retired Vintage Leaves Stamp Set. I found a cute dish towel and pot holder for everyone. I've added the Fall Bucket Printout below for you!
Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.
National Chicken Month: Yep this was one of those things I thought was interesting who knew Chickens have a national month. lol My plan was type up a recipe that used a can of cream of chicken soup.
The recipe I included came from the back of the Parmesan Cheese container. Then while looking for something on Amazon low and behold was something called rubber chicken sling shots you put them on your finger and pull back and shoot them like a rubber-band, we thought they were hilarious so we added them to the gift..the older kids loved them. I made the chicken punch art using my retired owl builder punch, 1/4 Circle Punch, and 1/8 Handheld Punch in Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red card stock. This was a real fun gift to put together.
