Pumpkin Chai Soy Candle By Katie Enzenberger

Fall is the season of pumpkin spice.  This Pumpkin Chai Soy candle is a cozy and inviting scent that gives a warm, fall fragrance.  Candles don’t get any better than this!  This candle is a mix of soy wax, pumpkin spice oil, vanilla, oil, ginger oil, and clove oil.  A perfect scent for the fall or anytime of the year!

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops By Kelly Senyei

If you are a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate flavor combo (that covers just about everyone I know), you will love these.  This is not only a summer treat but you can enjoy these all year long. Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops are creamy and delicious, and they are packed with healthy goodness, too.  That makes them twice as fun!

Tangy yogurt, peanut butter, and three additional ingredients are whisked together into a light and creamy mix that is poured into popsicle molds and frozen until solid.  Waiting for the popsicles to freeze is the hardest part of this recipe! Let’s pop on over to Just A Taste where Kelly has the ingredients and recipe waiting for you.  This will be a fun treat to let your children jump in and help.  I am so excited to have my little grandkids over this weekend to give this a try.  I have to say I am looking forward to tasting one of them as well! 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have been inspired and found some great ideas for a fun crafting day!  Be sure to visit the individual blogs I have shared with you to see more details on these fabulous projects.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs to all,

LeAnn
