Christmas projects

I know it's been awhile since I've blogged, christmas cards are just being made, projects are done, above is a snowman I've made (idea from cloth, paper, and scissor) I love him so I made acouple of them. Another project below that I've always wanted to make are these soldered christmas ornaments. I usually make these with 2x3 wood from Michaels but I wanted to make them different this year.

Tim Holtz is so talented!! I've been peeking at his blog and he has the most wonderful tags!! I made one and used one of his background techniques, I will have to go back and look at the rest and make more. The image is from paperwhimsy, purchased a bunch of her images and haven't made much.....I need to get on the ball. Okay back to creating, need to make more cards!!

finishing up some projects that were sitting on my desk, I purchased these birds awhile ago and they are finally done.  Aren't they cute? I still have two more halloween projects to finish up.  I can't believe I'm still working on halloween stuff!!  But I am truly am enjoying it.

okay, I saw this rubber stamp  and it screamed halloween so I made this card. Aren't they cute? The stamp is from Rubber stamp tapestry.  Hope your all having a great weekend.

halloween cards

I started making halloween cards today,  it was nice to be in some kind of creative mood again. The girl below is really a cute stamp (from stampland).  I just whited her eyes out and  painted her lips red to give her that spooky look.

The cat stamp above was purchased at Michaels last year ($1.00 bin) this card is really a ten minute card!! Some times its just fun to make quick cards.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged, sorry guys. Summer was terribly hectic for me. Family from both sides were here......I never made it to my craftroom the whole summer :( Entertaining is very draining (mentally and in your pocketbook) lol. Anyways, I hope everyone had a great summer. Boys are back in school and I am kinda glad, the house is quiet though.
I finally finished sewing this apron, It's made with an old pair of jeans, I was going to send it to somerset sew, but it feels like its not finish, any input?

I know it's only September, but I  felt like making something that has to do with halloween so I pulled out my beads and whatever junk I had already and came out with this bracelet.

I made this bracelet with plastic shrinkadink (I had for years) some charms and beads. it's amazing to see what you can create by just looking at what you already have! Anyways, have a great evening!!!

creating again

hi everyone, sorry it's been awhile since I've blogged. I've been busy with the boys (baseball) almost over, and of course school. 3 more days of school and we are done! I'm also now in my home! yeah! But now I'm unpacking again, seems like forever, but I know there will be an end to the chaos. I received a new stamp set from oxfordimpressions and made the card above.

I went to a stamp convention acouple weeks ago and bought these stamps. the company's name is artful illusions. I think their website is still down, I love their stamps, the tickets are from stampers anonymous. Now that I'm in my home I can start creating without leaving and blog more. Have a great weekend!

christmas cards!?!

I wanted to make some christmas cards for stampers and this is the first card I have made! It's so hard to think christmas when it's 70 degrees outside! I think I will take a break LOL (like a have made many)

Isn't she cute? I made quite a few birthday cards with her. The stamp is from artistic outpost. Have a good weekend!

catch up stampers issue

How cool is this! my card and Wendy's are in the running for the front cover of the catch up issue. I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but so many things have happened this past couple months and I'm just recovering. Anyways, I have been in a slump in creating but I think I am back! I finally made two cards! (for me, it's moving forward) I also created some spring stuff, will post them when I'm all done. I can't believe easter is around the corner, time seems to move faster when you have children. But I guess it's okay........anyways, have a good weekend everyone!

Valentine cards

I was in a valentine mood this past week, so I made a few cards. Well I'm off to CA for a small family vacation and personal matters, but I'm excited because were taking the boys skiing. We've never skiied in the west coast so this should be fun, have a great weekend everyone.

Marley's card

I finally made Marley's card.....I don't know why I took so long to make it, it's a good thing that she's only one, she won't remember her aunt sent it late. I wasn't totally happy with the composition, but I am done. :)

Do you have so much stuff that you don't even know what you have? well I do, so for 2008, I have decided not to buy anymore embellishments until I use most of what I have, I have spent so much money on embellishments!! My goal this year is to get much more organized....spend more time creating rather than searching for things.
