How To Make Hand Apple Pies {Skinny Recipe}

Hand apple pies. The smell of cinnamon and sugar sautéing on the stove and pie crust browning in the oven. It makes me think of my grandmother’s kitchen in Alabama.

How To Make Hand Apple Pies | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

When I was a little girl she fried hand apple pies most every Sunday. They were crispy and amazing. And although I loved the yummy goodness of those pies, I prefer a little lighter recipe for my boys. Don’t worry, my southern roots won’t let me stray too far. I promise, with this recipe you’re not sacrificing the flavor. {grin}

Plus, with a little semi-homemade ingenuity, you can whip these up on a school night!

How To Make Hand Apple Pies | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Ingredients for filling:

  • 5 cups apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (I use a vegan butter so my little one can eat them too, plus it has less fat)
  • 1/2 cup (packed) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (reserve for sprinkling on tops)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (+ a smidge to sprinkle on tops)
  • 1 pkg chilled pie crust (my grandmother’s buttermilk recipe is amazing… I’ll share it next time… but for the sake of only 4 grams of fat per mini pie)
  • 2 tbsp. Mazola corn oil (cholesterol free and 0 trans fats)

Make:

Filling: Heat a skillet over medium-heat. Add the diced apples, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to the pan and stir. Cook until the butter is melted and the apples are soft, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to make them mushy or to burn them and lose all the juice. Remove from the heat, and transfer the apple filling to a mixing bowl to cool. Set aside and let come to room temperature.

Pies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Remove dough disks from the refrigerator (work with one at a time to keep your dough chilled and in shape). Using a 3-inch-diameter cookie cutter or saucer, cut out six circles. Re-roll the dough as necessary to achieve all 12. Dough should be 1/8 thick.
  3. Lay the pastry circles on one of the sheet pans and top with half of the apple mixture, being sure to reserve as much of the apple liquid as possible. Adding too much liquid to the pies will get messy, quickly.
  4. Brush another round with Mazola oil. Using the back of a fork, gently press down to create a fluted seal along the edge. (Note: If not sticking well, put a little more Mazola along the inside of the seam to help it seal. You don’t want those yummy apples to escape.
  5. Sprinkle tops of mini hand pies with granulated sugar and a pinch of cinnamon rubbed between your hands to give it a light dusting. shaped slit in the top of each pie.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes (depending on your oven), until the pies are golden brown and cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes on a baking rack.

I like to serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla yogurt. {wink}

5 Craft Room Organization Tips

I’ve been working on organizing my craft room. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve likely seen a few pics of my freshly painted space, my new photography softboxes, and these lovely jars.

This project is part of a campaign with Blueprint Social and Plaid, but all my opinions are my own. You know I’d have it no other way! 

Craft Room Organization Ideas | Kim Byers

I like to keep my space very bright and clear because I’m always flipping holiday crafts, parties and home projects. I tend to use black, white, silver and clear a lot in my studio décor so that whatever I’m working on doesn’t clash terribly with the space. It’s just a visual thing that helps me. This said, I love color. And because I have so many craft and party supplies, I tend to organize by color. And this new Mod Podge Sheer is the perfect embellishment for all my clear jars and white containers.

Most of these items sit behind closed doors, but it helps me to quickly see what I have when it’s time to get crafty!

Organizing Your Craft Room | Kim Byers

5 Tips and Ideas for Organizing Your Craft Room:

  1. Empty the space – trust me. I know it’s a pain, but it’s amazing how energized to organize {grin} you are when you’re looking at a empty canvas.
  2. Separate by type or use – while all your things are out on your craft room floor, take the time to organize them either by what they are, or the item’s use. For my craft room, I’ve organized mine by candies, tools, embellishments, surfaces, gift wrap, etc. and then by color.
  3. Keep heavy items low and light items high – I’m not short, but I’m not tall and I certainly don’t want to pull something heavy out on my head. Which, I have to admit was exactly what I’ve been doing. My cake pans, individually, are not heavy, but when you put them all in a basket (that they don’t fit in) and then try to pull out just what you need, or pull the whole thing out… well… it can be hazardous to your health!
  4. Use containers that make staying organized easy (aka clear and stackable when possible) – what I mean by this is, purchase containers that make it easy to “store–use–return” without much work. You might say, what’s the big deal… unstack the containers, pull out the container you need, pop the lid, store your items. Okay, so let’s get honest with each other. You and I both know that more often than not you will leave the ONE item that you needed to store on top of the stack telling yourself you’ll put it away when you have other things that need to be put away too. {knowing glare} You think I’m being judgemental. No ladies. I’m not. This is what I do myself and I know I’m not alone!
  5. Label – I know what you’re thinking. It’s pretty, but I don’t have the time. Actually, I label because it forces me to consciously think “I’m misplacing this.” Nine out of 10 times, when I have labels I put things where they belong the first time. Plus, it doesn’t h when little people are helping you tidy up!

And for this project, I labeled with COLOR! These podgeable facet cut shapes are darling in clear, but I have so much candy, ribbon, etc., that using them to organize my colors was a no-brainer.

You’ll need:

  • Podgeable Facet Cut Shapes
  • Mod Podge Sheer
  • Brush
  • Baker’s Twine

Make: Brush the desired color onto the back of the facets, allow to dry for 20 minutes and repeat until desired shade (these have two coats), string with baker’s twine and hang!

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid and Sharpie but all my opinions are my own. You know I’d have it no other way! #pmedia #RubbermaidSharpie  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

Super Easy Football Ice Cream Sandwiches | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Making football fare for any game or tailgate is fun, but the Super Bowl… well… it’s the Super Bowl! I’m a fan of all the savory sandwich recipes and dips, but I have to have a bit of sweet too. And what’s best about my little football ice cream sandwiches, they’re super easy to make and store until your guests arrive!

Super Bowl Football Ice Cream Sandwiches | Kim Byers TheCelebrationShoppe.com

  • Rubbermaid storage containers (coupon details for Target below!)
  • White cake icing
  • Resealable bag
  • Icing tip #4 and connector

  • Optional: Chocolate sprinkles

Simple steps:

  1. Using a Sharpie, draw football plays, referee stripes or team colors on wooden spoons
  2. Unwrap your ice creams and lay them on a sheet of wax paper or in Rubbermaid container
  3. Pierce one end of the ice cream with a knife so that your wooden spoons can be inserted easily later
  4. Cut the edge of resealable bag, insert your icing connector and tip, spoon in icing and pipe football design
  5. Place in Rubbermaid container and freeze until guests arrive.
  6. Insert wooden spoons, sprinkle container with chocolate sprinkles (to finish the look) and serve.

Tip: If you serve them at halftime and they’re hard frozen, they should last the full 30 minutes!

Kid Craft: Footprint Manger Scene {DIY Tutorial}

Our faith holds first place in our house at Christmas time and I love reminding my children in the mix of all the excitement what this season really means.

Footprint Manger Art with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #StaplesSharpie http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

I warn you… the painting of the feet is ticklish so you may want to place a towel… or two… down. I warned my boys and they still flopped all over the place. {grin} In the end, it was so worth it to have their little (or not so little anymore) feet cradling their version of the baby Jesus.

Footprint Manger Art with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

To make your own Footprint Manger Scene, you’ll need:

  • Square white canvas
  • Sharpies – 12 ct. multipack, 4 ct. metallic assortment and either the silver or gold 4 pack (I LOVE them all and they’re all on sale at Staples right now!)
  • Brown craft paint for foot
  • Pearl white craft paint for head (we chose to stamp his head on with a finger but there are light Sharpies in the pack)
  • Paint brush
  • Optional: white Kraft paper

Footprint Manger Scene Kid Craft | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And now for the easy kid crafting steps:

Footprint – paint your child’s foot liberally with brown paint and then press evenly to the center lower portion of the white canvas. Allow to dry completely.

Prep and practice – since canvas is unforgiving, I put white paper (available in rolls like gift wrap) out under the canvases so my kids could practice what they’re planning to draw before they put Sharpie to canvas. You can see in the top image my youngest practicing his stars. {wink}

Draw – then just let them go! You can see from the side-by-side shot below that our manger scenes are slightly different, but in my mind that is what makes them that much more precious.

Artist signature – and don’t forget to let them sign their art. We like to date ours too!

Kid Craft: Footprint Manger Art | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Staples has all the Sharpies for your holiday needs! I mean $6 for a 12 ct Multi Colored pack of Sharpies! Woo Hoo! And the Sharpie Metallic Assorted 4-CT pack, including the Silver pack and the Gold pack are only $5. I’m personally a bit obsessed with all my Sharpie colors, but the metallic are my new favorites!

How To Make An Easy DIY Christmas Advent Calendar {Tutorial}

We love having a Christmas advent calendar. The kids bounce out of bed each day giddy to see what is inside. When they were really tiny it was always a little note about how we would celebrate the season that day. Reading a book together, hot chocolate, etc.

DIY Advent Tutorial | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Last year they really wanted to the LEGO advents in addition to our regular advent. My oldest got the original and my youngest got the Star Wars. They were fun and the boys wanted to do it again this year. After looking at the 2013 sets and how similar they are to the 2012 sets, I decided I’d rather buy a bigger Christmas set and separate it into the advent myself. The set was only a bit more and it is much cuter!

Well of course to make this magic happen that meant I had to create my own DIY advent calendar. Let me tell you, it is a huge hit with my kiddos and it looks pretty in my living room. {grin}

So let’s get crafty!

DIY Christmas Advent Calendar | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

To make your own advent calendar, you can find all of these supplies at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores:

  • 4″ boxes or bags for the number of days that you’ll be celebrating (these exact boxes are from Pick Your Plum, but JoAnn has similar boxes & paper bags)
  • Mini clothespins (in the wood section)
  • Bakers twine or ribbon
  • DCWV The Christmas & Winter Glitter Cardstock Stack
  • DCWV The Holiday Cheer Stack
  • DCWV Chipboard Christmas embellishment (shown on top of frame)
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue Spots 1/8″ thick
  • Whimsy frame 2.5″ punch
  • Circle 1″ punch
  • Foam adhesive squares
  • Optional: 30″ wide frame and hot glue (a banister or mantel would work great too)

DIY Advent Christmas Calendar | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And these are the easy steps:

  1. Measure – if you’re hanging your boxes or bags inside a frame, measure the width of your packaging and the inside edges of your frame. Lay them out on the table in the arrangement you want.
  2. Select paper colors – flip through the DCWV The Christmas & Winter Glitter Cardstock Stack and select glitter paper.
  3. Punch frames - punch the sheets and set aside
  4. Punch and/or cut numbers – in the front of the DCWV The Holiday Cheer Stack you’ll find two sheets of frames and numbers. I punched the numbers from 1-19 out with a 1″ circle punch. I then cut out the frames for the 20-24 boxes.
  5. Attach frames and numbers – using 3/4 glue dots, attach the frames to the center of your packaging. Top with a foam adhesive dot and add the day/number.
  6. Hang – string bakers twine inside your frame (or along a banister or mantel), attach with hot glue or push pins (depending on the surface) and clothespin on each box.
  7. Give – I chose to only put the next morning’s gift in each day. There are two reasons for this. One, my boys might look… {grin} and two, it keeps the weight on the string to a minimum.

And if you’re like me, and you’re filling yours with LEGOs, take 24 resealable bags (or 48 in my case) and separate the LEGOs according to the instruction book. My boys are loving getting a new piece to their creation every day!

DIY Christmas Advent Calendar | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I used small detail scissors for the whimsy frames on the numbers.

DIY Advent Christmas Calendar | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And this is what the foam adhesive dot looks like between the frame and number. Gives it just a bit of 3-D effect!

Halloween Game: Bowling for Witches

Hosting a Halloween party this year? How about a party game!

Halloween Game, Bowling for Witches | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own.

We hosted our annual Halloween party this past weekend and our guests ranged from 9 years old down to 18 months. As you can imagine, we had to have two sets of games set up for the kiddos.

My sons and their friends played outside most of the evening. We decorated our backyard with lights, spider webs, and a sort-of haunted tree house complete with monster eye window decorations, lanterns, jumping spiders, glowing lights and more. (Here’s a quick tutorial for the monster eye window decorations!)

For the little siblings, we kept them indoors and entertained with fun games like this one: Bowling for Witches!

To make this Halloween bowling game you’ll need:

  • 5-6 rolls of Cottonelle Triple Roll (I’ve even got a Cottonelle coupon for you! Buy Cottonelle Triple Roll 12-pack or larger and get a FREE box of Kleenex while supplies last.)
  • Washi tape (for your alley)
  • Ball
  • My free Sinister Sister Witch Download

Three easy steps to set up your Halloween bowling game:

  1. Craft your witches with a 2.5″ circle punch for the head / scissors for the hat and foam adhesive dot (so the hat appears raised) to attach them to each other
  2. Arrange the toilet paper and attach the witches
  3. Use washi tape to make an alley

To play the game, we let the little ones try to knock the witches off! The bigger kids of course knocked the whole thing down. {grin}

As for the witches, they’re also darling as cupcake toppers! The download includes the cupcake wrappers too if you’d like to give them a whirl as well.

easy monster eye Halloween window tutorial

Make your windows a little spooky this Halloween with this simple monster eyes window décor idea!

Monster Eyes Halloween Window Tutorial with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own.

My family hosts an annual Halloween party every year, the Byers Family Boo Bash! {grin} And this year my boys are finally old enough to help me decorate. And with them being old enough to help, that also means they have their own ideas!

With 15 giggling kiddos coming over, my boys wanted to decorate their tree house to be a bit spooky. Nothing too creepy… but just enough to get a “eeek!” out of their friends! There is a flip up, hatch-type window, on the front so the boys made a Monster Eye Window. It was super easy and a big hit with the kiddos!

To make monster eye windows this Halloween, you’ll need:

  • Roll or two of Cottonelle Triple Roll (I’ve even got a Cottonelle coupon for you! Buy Cottonelle Triple Roll 12-pack or larger and get a FREE box of Kleenex while supplies last.)
  • 2 Sheets of Black Cardstock
  • 2 Nails and Hammer (or tape if you’re covering a real window)

Monster Eye Window Tutorial | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And here are the three easy steps:

  1. Cut two large circles out of cardstock.
  2. Nail to window, or tape if glass.
  3. Wrap with toilet paper (tape at each side if you can’t wrap around).

Mummy Wrap Halloween Game with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

In addition to the monster eyes, we also had a mummy wrap game during the party. Sadly, it was a bit too dark to get good pics, these were taken with my iPhone, but it was a riot! Just have the kids pair up and choose who is going to wrap and who is going to be wrapped. Then, starting at the legs, ready-set-go and wrap to the top. The first to finish without the toilet paper breaking wins!

AND, we had a “Bowling for Witches” game. I’ll be posting about it next and it will include FREE printables!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Hi ladies! Want an easy and family friendly punch idea for this year’s Halloween party?! Well it doesn’t get any easier than my potion punch!

And why not serve it in these beautiful everyday crystal goblets from Villeroy & Boch. No formal dinner needed to pull these pretties out of the cabinet!

It’s really time to end the myth that crystal glasses are delicate and should be saved for special occasions. Villeroy & Boch’s everyday crystal is durable and doesn’t cloud or chip. And that’s even with my boys (ages 7 and 9) using them for milk at dinner. It makes them feel special and I love the way the set table looks. Trust me, Villeroy & Boch is the everyday luxury you deserve!

For my potion punch you’ll need only two ingredients!

How to make… and the easy just keeps on coming…

  1. Put one-and-a-half to two scoops of sherbet in your goblet (or 8oz. glass).
  2. Top with 7up and watch it fizz! The kiddos will think it’s fun!
