GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Made in Minutes!" 
I hope you ALL had a GREAT weekend! Mine was SUPER BUSY & I'm not sure about you ladies & gents, but does any of your kids ask you to do a MAJOR project at the "last minute" for school?
Well, I was "literally" walking to my craft room when my son told me that he needed to make a dish for his spanish class for his country he picked for his presentation!  Of COURSE, my FIRST question was…."when do you need it by?" he says….."tomorrow!"  LOL….. I can laugh about it now, but when he asked me, I was SO NOT IN THE MOOD to make ANOTHER meal & especially if it was NOT for us! ;)  We went grocery shopping & luckily I had 80% of the ingredients so it wasn't too bad!  We ended up making "Empenadas".   Not sure if I even spelled it correctly, but basically they were bean, cheese & chorizo turnovers! I have to say that I "HAD TO" test taste them & they were pretty yummy!  But, this was the "highlight"!  After we made them, my son said that now he can bring the recipe to his teacher! Of course, I responded "What do you mean the recipe?" He told me that he just wanted to make them to make sure they taste good before he has to bring them to school "NEXT TUESDAY!" OMG! soooo, basically the teacher wanted everyone's recipe TOMORROW……"WHY?"….it's NOT even due until "NEXT Tuesday?" 
Oh well, at least I have dinner for tonight AND we had fun making them! ;) 
So, there went my crafting time! For those of you who have kids KNOW that you no longer have a schedule! Your kids' schedule is YOUR schedule….right? hehehe!  This is what being a Mom is all about & I would NOT trade it for the world! ;)  I would do ANYTHING for my "big" baby boys! :)

Okay, before we get to our WINNERS from last week's 5 Days of Christmas, my team has created "once again" some AMAZING "Made in Minutes" projects for you today! Don't forget to click on each name to visit each blog & leave them some LOVE! ;)

  3. Congrats to all the winners! Emma you and your team did such a wonderful job!

  4. Oh yeah, I remember my kiddo's doing that similar project for the Spanish class and I think it was pretty much last minute to, lol! Nothing like a Sunday night of chaos but it sounds like it worked out after all. What we wouldn't do for our kids, ha? I hope you got to take in a little relaxing over the weekend..tis the season to be BUSY!
    Have a great day!
    Congrats to all the winners!

  5. Lol! I so don't miss those days of things like that happening. My oldest is graduated and my youngest is now schooled at home, so there are no unexpected surprises, lol! So glad that you had fun making them and we're able to spend time together :) Love all the fantastic creations by the DT today! Congratulations to all the winners too!

  6. Congrats everyone! Have fun with your crafting goodies.
    LOL a Mom's work is never done.
    AND I wouldn't have it any other way.
    Thanks DT for sharing your SWEET projects.
    Crafty hugs,

  7. Congrats to winners. My son had to do that for Spanish too. They did steak quesadillas with guacamole. Expensive project. Sounds like you had a great dinner. Thanks for the inspiration. I need quick project ideas.

  8. Congrats to all the winners!


  9. Congratulations to all the winners! Enjoy!!

  10. Thank you Emma!
    I remember when my girls were growing up it seems like only Spanish class did the food! One did Glan the other Paella. You are such an amazing Mom!
    I wish you, your family and your DT and to all of us who read your blog and watch your videos an Amazing Wonderful Christmas and a Wonderful New Year! I
    look forward to seeing what you all create in the New Year! Many Blessings!

  11. Oh, yes. I've had those days with my daughter. My son tends to just ignore projects, probably because he's seen my face turn red dealing with his sister's last minute projects, LOL! The empanadas sounded wonderful and it's nice that you at least got to enjoy them!
    I'm so excited to try the Wink of Stella pens! I've been wanting to forever and now I'll have the chance! Thanks so much for sharing! Congratulations to the other winners, too! Enjoy your goodies! I know I will!

  12. Oh yes, I have had those kinds of days with my boys! lol Your empanadas sound so yummy and bonus that supper is done for the night! Congrats to the winners and a thank you Miss Emma for such a fun week last week. The DT did an amazing job today as well. Hugs, Brenda

  13. Great projects by your team. My funny story about my kids involves two of them when they were in college. They never let me know they were coming home so I said to give me a call so I can prepare. The next time they came they called-- from the end of our driveway!
    Congrats to all the the winners--I am so happy to have won a prize.

  14. Oh My Word! I am so surprised to be a very lucky winner! Wish you could see my face ;) Thank you so much for such a generous gift! <3 I like your Spanish Class story and how you will be making these again soon! Your son better be helping with the making also. I think all Moms have a story or two like yours today...just enjoy it because as you mention they grow fast and time is flying. You will be able to take pictures and journal about it in a layout, and laugh about it years later. The team has some great projects made quickly. They really are amazing. Congratulations to all of the winners! Thank you again for the fabulous gift!
