Happy After Christmas!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday and was able to spend it with family and friends.  Mine was great and I am looking forward to a new year and some new projects.  My NUMBER ONE PROJECT is to re-do my scraproom.  It is so unorganized, it is driving me crazy so I am hoping that I can get it the way I need to in order to be able to function like I need to in there.  So stay tuned for some organizational tips that hopefully will help.  Happy New Year!!!

Christmas Wreath

This is my FIRST attempt at a fabric wreath.  I got the idea from Sarah (PinkCricuit).  I think hers turned out a little better than mine but I thought it was okay for a first try.  I used four different patterns of Christmas fabric and some sparkely tulle.  Just tied strips around a wreath form until it was filled.  I bought 1/2 yard of each one and I did not even use half of each for this wreath.  So I can make about 1 or two more of these.  Let me know what you think.

Christmas Challenge

Here is another Christmas card using a digi from Bugaboo Stamps.  Isn't it so cute!  I jazzed it up a little with some glaze on the red parts of the candy cane and used some Sakura glitter pens on parts of the outfit.  Used Christmas twine also.

I will be submitting this card in the following challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey - Christmas
Creative Card Crew - Tis the Season
Come and Get It - Anything Christmas
Belli Challenge - Winter & Christmas
Heart Song Inspirations - Christmas and/or Red, Green and White

Craft Show 12-3-11

Had my third craft show this year.  Went better than the last two probably because it was close to Christmas.  However, this event is always busy so I was glad to get in on it.  Here are some photos. Video is below.




My helper (my son).  I know he did not want to be there but he was sweet enough to help me since my hubby was not able to make it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you stay safe during this holiday season and are able to spend it with family and friends.  I am thankful for my family most of all, even though we are kind of spread out this year.  This is the first year since hubby and I have been married that we have spent Thanksgiving alone.  The kids are spending it with their girlfriends' families and other family members had their own plans so hubby and I are having our own little private Thanksgiving today.  Weird.....

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Door Hangers

Made a few door hangers and I thought I would share...

This one I covered with paper and then glued a tinsel pipecleaner around the opening.  The rest are stickers.

I lifted this idea from someone..don't remember who but I love the ants going everywhere.  I used weird sticker letters for the BUG.  When you look at it, your eyes may hurt!

This one I lifted also but could not help it becasue I had the same mouse!  I changed it a bit with different background. I had this great paper with presents on it and it just fit the theme of the hanger.  The mouse is a paper piecing. I put tinsel glitter on his hat for the silver parts.

This one I love because it has a denim background and I used twine for the rope. 

Thanks for visiting!

Circles, Circles Everywhere!

I love circles!  Yeah weird, I know.  So when I saw Dawn at DawnsStampingThoughts do one, I had to do it too.  Very simple card and simple design but fun to make.  The inside was just as fun as the outside.  I just punched out 3 sizes of circles and glued them to cardstock, embossed the cardstock and so on....  Thanks Dawn for the idea. I love it!
