CHRISTMAS CARD 2016

OK,SO, IN MY CHRISTMAS MADNESS I DECIDED TO DO A LITTLE MASS PRODUCTION OF CHRISTMAS CARD FOR THIS YEAR.  BELOW YOU WILL SEE ALL OF THE PIECES DIE CUT AND READY TO GO FROM THE SIMON SAYS STAMP POINSETTIA PARADE DIES.

1ST I CUT OUT ALL THE CAR BASES AND STAMPED THEM. I BACKED THE INSIDE OF THE CARD WITH ANOTHER PIECES OF WHITE TO ADD STABILITY AND A BACKING TO GLUE THE POINSETTIAS.

2ND I CUT ALL OF THE PIECES IN RED AND GREEN, BUT DON’T WORRY NOTHING IS GOING TO WASTE AND WHAT A GREAT WAY TO STOCK UP ON FLOWER PARTS.  THE EXTRA RED LEAVES TO THE RIGHT END WILL BE PUT IN MY CONFETTI BOX FOR SHAKER CARDS, THE EXTRA GREEN FLOWERS WILL BE USED UNDER OTHER PAPER FLOWERS AS LEAVES. AND THE WHITE FLOWERS WILL BE ASSEMBLED AND SPONGED FOR MY FLOWER STASH.

NOW FOR ASSEMBLY TIME. THE HARD PART WAS MATCHING WHAT LEAVES FIT INTO WHAT CUT.  BUT I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT LIKE A PUZZLE. EACH OF THE COLORED PIECES ARE INLAID INTO THE CAR BASE AND I THINK IT IS SO PRETTY BUT YOU KNOW ME I CANNOT LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE. I MAY ADD SOME RHINESTONES OR SPARKLIES OR SOMETHING TO THE FLOWER CENTERS. WE WILL SEE…..

1 CHRISTMAS CARD ASSEMBLED IN THE STACK AND 39 MORE TO GO.2016-christmas-card-complete

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.  I KNOW IT IS STILL OCTOBER BUT I AM TRYING TO GET A SMALL JUMP ON CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR. MY SCHEDULE HAS BEEN SO CRAZY LATELY I DON’T FEEL LIKE I HAVE HAD A LOT OF TIME FOR PROJECTS, BUT LAST WEEKEND I KICKED IT INTO HIGH GEAR AND AM READY TO ROLL.

 

SOOOOOO, WITH THIS TERRIBLE PICTURE I AM SHARING A MINI CHRISTMAS TREE I CREATED WITH THE NEW “CONCORD & 9TH TAKE A BOUGH DIE SET.”  I HAVE NEVER PURCHASE ANY DIES FROM THIS COMPANY AND I HAVE TO SAY I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE DETAIL AND THE WAY YOU GET A CLEAN CUT EVERY TIME.  YOU NEED TO GO CHECK THEM OUT.  AFTER ASSEMBLING THE TREE I ADDED SOME SEQUINS, AND MINI TREE TRIM AND SPRAYED HE WHOLE TREE WITH GLIMMER MIST FOR A LITTLE SPARKLE.  I LIKE HOW THIS CAME TOGETHER AND WILL DEFINITELY CREATING MORE WITH THESE DIES.

HALLOWEEN TREATS

GOOD MORNING ALL. THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE SOME OF THE SWEET TREATS I PUT TOGETHER TO SELL AT “THE FOXFIRE FESTIVAL” THAT I WAS IN ON OCTOBER 1, 2016.  I LOVE DOING CRAFTS FAIRS AND FESTIVALS AND EVEN IF I AM NOT IN THEM I GO TO THEM JUST TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE HAS GOING ON….NO MATTER WHAT GOODS I BRING TO THE FESTIVAL I ALWAYS TRY TO HAVE SOME SWEET TREATS AND THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE BIG SELLERS NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE.  SORRY I ONLY HAVE 1 PICTURE OF THE SWEET TREATS.  SOMEHOW I DID TAKE THE PICTURES OF THE POISON VILES AND CANDY CORN PUMPKINS BEFORE THEY WERE ALL GONE BUT I SOMEHOW DELETED THEM FROM MY CAMERA BEFORE I GOT THEM LOADED.  😦

  1. CANDY KITS:  THESE WERE SO EASY (ONCE I FOUND THE 8 DIFFERENT CANDIES THAT WOULD FIT IN THE WHOLES.) . I GOT THE LITTLE BOX AT THE DOLLAR TREE AND FILLED THEM WITH AN ASSORTMENT OF SWEET TREATS.

    2. CANDY CORN PUMPKINS:  ALSO A EASY TREAT.  USED MY LARGE BOW DIE FROM STAMPIN UP TO MAKE THE PUMPKIN AND A STAR PUNCH AND PIPE CLEANERS FOR THE STEM. FILLED THE LITTLE ZIPLOCK BAGS WITH FALL MIX AND INSERTED IN THE PUMPKIN. (TIP…PLACE THE CANDY INSIDE BEFORE CLOSING UP THE PUMPKIN, TRUST ME IT’S EASIER).

    3.  POISON VILES:  AGAIN VERY SIMPLE.  PICKED UP THESE MARTHA STEWART TEST TUBE LAST YEAR AT MICHEAL’S ON CLEARANCE AFTER HALLOWEEN AND ADDED CANDY.

NOW SEE. HALLOWEEN TREATS DON’T HAVE TO BE HARD TO BE CREATIVE AND DIFFERENT.  YOU JUST HAVE TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

OH, MY… SORRY FOR THE LATE BLOGPOT…..

I JUST REALIZED IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE WEEKS SINCE MY LAST POST.  I HAVE JUST BEEN SO BUSY WITH WORK AND THE KIDS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AND SPORTS TIME HAS JUST SLIPPED BY ME.  SO TODAY I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE A SWAP THAT I ATTENDED ON PAPER CRAFTING SWAPPERS.

WE DONE A SUMMER PAPER PURSE SWAP…. THE THEME WAS SUMMER ORPICNIC THEMED FILLED WITH GOODIES . HERE IS THE PURSE I SENT TO MY PARTNER MANDY PATTERSON-ALMOND, I DID NOT TAKE A PICTURE OF THE GOODIES, SORRY.

AND HERE IS THE CUTE PURSE SHE SENT BACK TO ME. SORRY FOR THE BAD PIC.

THANK YOU FOR THE GOODIES.  OH, MY 13 YEARS OLD DAUGHTER WANTED TO STILL THE PURSE WITH THE PINK POLKA DOTS…

Big Sister Ribbon

I REMEMBER WAY BACK WHEN MY OLDEST DAUGHTER WAS LITTLE AND OUR SON WAS SOON ON HIS WAY I FOUND A RIBBON THAT SAID BIG SISTER AT SOME STORE.  I CANNOT REMEMBER WHAT STORE SEEING AS THAT WAS 15 YEARS AGO. (MAN IT DON’T SEEM LIKE THAT LONG).  ANYWAY NOW THAT MY BABY SISTER IS HAVING HER 2ND CHILD VERY SOON I DECIDED THAT MISS CHLOE NEEDED A RIBBON ALSO TO MAKE HER FEEL SPECIAL.  AFTER HUNTING FOR A FEW DAYS AND NOT FINDING ONE I DECIDED I AM PRETTY CRAFTY (HA HA…) SO I WOULD JUST MAKE ONE AND HERE IS WHAT I COME UP WITH. IT IS ALL PINK BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS ALL GIRLY, GIRLY IN HER HOUSE AND MEASURES ABOUT 10″ LONG WITH THE RIBBON TAILS.

ANYWAY, I WRAPPED IT UP IN A LITTLE BOX AND LET MISS CHLOE OPEN IT IN AT THE BABY SHOWER LAST WEEK AND WEAR IT AND SHE LOVED IT.  SHE WENT AROUND SHOWING EVERYONE HER RIBBON AND TELLING THEM SHE WAS A BIG SISTER.  NEEDLESS TO SAY I TOLD HER I WOULD HOLD ONTO IT UNTIL THE BABY CAME AND SHE COULD WEAR IT TO THE HOSPITAL.  (THE REAL TRUTH IS I DID NOT WANT IT LOST OR DESTOYED BEFORE THEN)…  🙂

OH AND IF YOU ARE INTERESTED I CAN MAKE A CUSTOM ONE FOR YOU, JUST LET ME KNOW WHAT COLORS OR THEME AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO COME UP WITH A SUITABLE PRICE….

ENJOY……IMG_20160413_084155096
