Spooky Spiders and the Itsy Bitsy Spider

This post is long. Very long. If you read all the way through, you deserve a prize. SO, if you read to the end, you will have a chance to win a RAK from me! :)

Spooky Spiders
I don't think there is anything terribly original about this project but the recipe. My mom has always made these candies and they look like spiders. Thought it would be cute to put them in a little pail. (not to mention this works for my Halloween class at the store!)
I punched black cardstock with my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch. I adhered it to the inside of the bucket. I also put some GlueLines on the inside of the rim and hung some spider webbing. (because of the webbing, I wrapped the treats in clear cellophane) The spider webs were stamped onto acetate (StazOn) and placed inside as well.
To make the cover, I used my largest Nestabilities circle and made a notecard. I do this by not putting the die all the way over the score line of the card.
For the recipe, I used to Word to draw a circle and type inside it. A 3.5" circle worked perfectly.
Spooky Spider Recipe:
12 oz. Butterscotch Chips
6 oz. Chocolate Chips
3 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
3 C. Shoestring Potatoes
1 C. chopped Walnuts
Melt the chips and then add the peanut butter. Fold in the rest of the ingredients.
Drop onto wax paper and chill until set.
The perfect sweet and salty treat!
Itsy Bitsy Spider
ITS HERE!!! The new collection from Piggy Tales, that I named, is here!! Piggy Tales held a contest late last year. All their collections are based on nursery rhymes and children's stories, so they wanted people to come up with names for a paper line. I picked Itsy Bitsy Spider, because my little man loves that song. A few months later, I found out I WON!
Here is the artist rendering of my names!! Isn't it cool?!
Rain (its black, bad photo, sorry)
Spider (bright lime green, man get some better lighting, Kimberly!)
Spout
Sun
Up and Down
Washed (also black, yikes)
Here is the RAK! In honor of the new paper line and the fact that you actually read this far-here is the prize. A Hide and Seek flap book from Piggy Tales! This white, board book has little doors that can be opened-so cute! It comes with a template to help you size and line up your photos and paper. (I am working on one now. It will be a little bit longer 'till its finished.) Leave a comment on THIS post telling me your favorite children's story or song, yours or your children's. I will pick a winner on Thursday, Sept. 17 at 7 pm CST.
thanks for stopping by!! :)

My Favourite children's storybook is "The Monster at the End of this Book: Starring Loveable, Furry Old Grover" by Jon Stone

For sure it is : 7 Little Rabbits Walking Down the Road ....to call on Old Friend Toad....and if you have read it or been singing it you just can't get it out of your head :-)

Have a Wild About Stamping Wednesday everyone!

My favorite story is the Velveteen Rabbit. I have almost ever version made. I even found a scrapbook phot album that follows the story.

Drika said...

The first post is never picked, but who knows, right??

I really like the 3 little pigs story. My grandmother was used to tell me that story when I slept over her house...

Thanks for the RAK!

Tracey said...

Congrats on having your name chosen. I love the Itsy Bitsy Spider line. I will definitely be picking it up!!

In this house, my two-year-old baby girl and I are big fans of "You Are My Sunshine". Other hits are "Wheels on the Bus", the counting fingers song and of course "Itsy Bitsy Spider"!!

Kristie said...

These are such great papers. Congrats on naming them! I will have to get me some and think of you each time I use them. My favorite kids song is Froggy Went a Courtin'. Both the Laurie Berkner version AND the bob dylan version!
I love you blog and visit everyday!

Niki Estes said...

That's so neat that they picked your name, Kim! Your pail and treats are so cute, too. My son's favorite was always Twinkle, twinkle little star and my daughter's favorite has always been rock-a-bye baby. Have a great day!

Cass said...

My son loves Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and my daughters fave is Old MacDonald had a Farm. :)

Trace Geworsky said...

A really special song between my son and I is "you are my sunshine" everytime either of us is feeling down, we sing it to each other.

TraceyT said...

How cool! I had no idea you named this pp line. Fun, fun, fun. As for the first project, you just plain rock, gf. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

Fav. story - Wheels on the Bus and Itsy Bitsy Spider is right up there right now as well. I'd like to have a dollar for each time I've sung these already this week. :)

maria fiscella said...

That certainly is some gorgeous paper! The names really make the designs :-) Thanks for the recipe; I think I'll surprise DH with these. Now don't laugh at me for my favorite children's song...it's On Top of Spaghetti. The first verse is "On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese/I lost my poor meatball/when somebody sneezed/it rolled off of the table/and onto the floor/and then my poor meatball/rolled out of the door." It continues on throughout the song to roll into the garden, grow into a tree and bear lots of meatballs. Did I mention half of my family is Italian? LOL

Pegg S said...

That is SO cool you got to name this line!!! I don't have kids but all my friends (it seems) do..so I'm always searching for great kids books. My favorite is: There Is a Bird On Your Head! (Elephant and Piggie) by Mo Willems. It is hilarious - simple story and drawings, but it really makes me laugh and I know all the kiddies enjoy it too!!

Mindy said...

My favorite story book was always the Dr. Seuss, "Come Over To My House, Come Over To Play" about going to different cultures' homes.

Angela Fehr said...

We have about 200 children's books. My personal favorites are anything by Munsch, Suess or McCloskey.

And we've been singing "Scooby Doo" lately.

Rox-Ann said...

Wow love the project and I love the paper it is really cute!!

Hansen Family said...

Right now, because we have a three month old, my daughter's favorite song to sing is a remake of the classic, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." It is called, "Stinky, Stinky, Diaper Change." She loves to sing it whenever I am changing a diaper. She is also loving the Froggy books.

Lisa said...

My favorite book as a child was "Gobble Growl Grunt" by Peter Spier. The entire book consists of every type of animal you can think of and the sound that they make. It's great! Thanks for the contest!

Michelle said...

ooh...I love the itsy bitsy spider line... must get! Congrats! I am partial to the itsy bitsy spider myself... my 3 year old niece loves it & she reads the book & sings the song & it is the cutest thing ever....precious, love it!

TanishaRenee said...

Way to go Kimbery!! One of my DS's fave songs happens to be Itsy Bitsy Spider, he sings it just about everyday!

Charlene Austin (Willow01) said...

Love the paper and the names. You're so cool!!

My favorite kids story is The Princess and The Pea. And I swear it's because of that story that my sheets cannot have a single wrinkle in them or I can't sleep. Guess I am a Princess!! :) Bwahaha!

Jenn said...

Hmmm, my favorite children's book/story is Green Eggs and Ham... But I also love Goldlocks and the Three Bears. We used to have a song about that story that we would sing at daycamp. I loved teaching it to the little kids :)

Donelda said...

How exciting! Love it!!

Deb said...

Kim, that is so cool that the paper you named is finally in your hands! I can't wait to get some, myself! Congrats, girl! And that spooky spiders bucket is too cool! DS and I just finished reading the complete tales of Winnie the Pooh, so that is our favorite children's book right now.

Tammi said...

I love Piggy Tales as well...they have some great lines of paper! My little boys favorite book has been "How do Dinosaurs say goodnight". Love your blog!

Anonymous said...

All your work is so pretty. Thanks for sharing. My older daughter loved "Old McDonald" because she loved making the "bawk" chicken noise when you got to the chicken part. It was really cute. My younger daughter used to love the "I love you, You love me" song that Barney would sing and she would instantly calm down everytime I would start to sing it to her. Sweet memories.

Tammy Hershberger said...

LOL We still sing the Barney "I Love You" song to irritate our girls! (Just thought I'd share that, but please just skip over me on the drawing!

Love the pail, and I NEED some of that candy right now! It's definitely a day for stress eating!

Those new papers are outstanding! Congrats on getting naming rights!

Deanna said...

SHUT UP... you named that! Too kewl! I love it, I just bought a couple sheets at my LSS!

PS... please courier me some of those cookies! LOL

David said...

I currently have a 17 month old daughter (and will have a second daughter in 3 weeks). It's funny, but she loves for me to sing "Pennies from Heaven". Not totally a kids a song, but I'm singing it TO my kid. Does that count? :)

I should at least get points for being a singing dad. LOL

Tammi said...

I, too, love Piggy Tales line of products! My son's favortite book has been "How do Dinosaurs say Goodnight"...it is very cute just like this paper!

Tessa said...

How cool to have product that you named out in the market.
We hear alot of Twinkle Twinkle in our house, although the last couple days I have heard some Farmer in the Dell through the baby monitor!

Callista said...

Congrats on winning the contest.. what a great name and a great kit to go with it.

I LOVE your spider bucket with the treats, soo much fun. Halloween is such a great holiday!

My favorite children's story is "Alice in Wonderland" it always has been. Just love that cheshire cat.. which is ironic since I am a dog person. HA ha!

Jewels said...

This is so cute!!!

Regan said...

Doviana said...

I absolutely LOVE the paper line! GReat job on the naming!! I would have to say that my favorite kids story was the Amelia Bedelia books. I was SOOO into those!!!

Krystinah said...

What a great project you made, just love the pail and the cookies look so tasty...Kristina

Maggie Muggins said...

My dad used to sing me and my sibblings to sleep - we all had different favorites (mine was "There's a hole in the bottom of the Sea"). At each of our weddings he re-worked the song to tell our love story. Hilarious! Now that I have my own 17 month old son I sing a lot to him. His favorite is "Sammy" and I'll admit I love singing it to him!

Jessica Town said...

We have this old book called Bunker Bear that was mine when I was little. Now we read it to the boys. It's definitely a favorite. I don't think it's in print anymore unfortunately.

Hope to see you again soon!!!

Lynn Mercurio said...

Oh Kimberly, this is absolutely fabulous...so well done, and superbly spookie. What a great project!

deb said...

Congratulations on another fun project! My daughter's favorite story was Richard Scarry's "Good Night Little Bear" which we read at least a dozen times a night, omitting not one single word for she had it entirely memorized. My son's favorite was anything Sesame Street. My first post..I hope I'm successful!

Mara... said...

I LOVED all the Great Brain books when I was growing up. And my kids and I just discovered these books about Skippy Jon Jones, a Siamese cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua. They are hysterical!!!

Gina Hanson said...

My son has always LOVED the "The Gruffalo"! He knows it by heart! :)

Heather said...

My favorite growing up was MOnsters Come in Many Colors. It was the first book I read by myself!

Charmaine (CharmWarm) said...

LOVE that paint can! What a fab idea!

Julie Masse said...

Congrats Kim!! The lines looks so fun! What an exciting thing for you!! My favorite song - have several, but I always sing a couple songs to my children, I love you, a bushel & a peck . . . (my mom used to sing this to us) and Great Is Thy Faithfulness - I must have sung this thousands of times, it all started when my first was a baby and it totally soothed her every time!! It's kind of "our" song now - lol! :)
