I’ve seen so many holiday cards lately I had to jump on the bandwagon and think about stating mine. I decided to make this full apron card which allows you to tuck in a nice cookie recipe ~ it has been suggested to me that these would be great for a cookie exchange- what a great idea! Hope you enjoy!

All products (aside from the ribbon) used are offered through Creative Memories and I love the new Jewel Christmas Power Palette Kit!

So Comfy………

I had mentioned that we were doing a remodel of our living room and here is a peek at how it came out šŸ™‚ I love the taupe walls and how well it goes with the white woodwork. We purchased the dark brown leather couch and chair which recline (so nice for the back) and this weekend we’ll be shopping for a new coffee table šŸ™‚ It’s amazing how a simple re-do can lift your spirits!(well, not really so simple)

Only cardstock

The CM design team had a challenge this weekend to create a cardstock only LO. I used one of my favorite photos of my mother when she was younger. I also made it 6 x 12 which was different and fun for me. All products used are from Creative Memories.  Thanks for visiting!

Hello Again!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything although I have been busy! I should say busy good and busy not so good ~ Between getting a lower lumbar MRI and cervical x-rays paired with physical therapy appointments and a trip to the Rheumatologist you can guess that I have some pain going on…. on the other hand I’ve been working on a crafty assignment and that is always fun šŸ™‚ AND we have been doing some home renovations (I use the word WE very liberally as with my back issues I am rendered pretty useless – I mean we are talking sheet rock here!!) We are on the last stage of this project with the hardwood floors being sanded and polyurethaned, Phew…. almost over. The kitties get to come home Friday when all the fumes should be gone and the new furniture will be delivered that day at noon. I can’t wait and will have to post photos.

For those of you who have emailed, I will be posting a tutorial on making the glass pendants. Believe me… these are a breeze and so much prettier then the photos I took of them.

Today I would like to share two projects I made a little while ago. You will notice that the little “room” book has no photos in it as my daughter would not allow me to post any of her from our trip to Disney world. It was a few years ago and she was in her “awkward” phase. IĀ  love the way this looks like a little 4 inch mini book but opens to expose 4 individual spaces. Neat!

I used the Creative Memories Disney Vacation Palette (One of my all time favorite paper sets!)

With hope I’ll have something new for you soon šŸ™‚

And a gallon sized pain can- I love using these to give gifts in šŸ™‚

I loved making the ears for the top!
