Birthday Gift Tag...

This cute tag is for my granddaughter, Delilah, she turns three in a few days. I used a doll head I purchased from Lisa Kettells ArtFire store here too. It came prepainted so all I had to do was make the tag and embellish it. Cuteness! :)) Happy Birthday Delilah!


Kewpie Doll Clothes Pins...

I recently entered a blog hop and contest on Lisa Kettells blog!! (So Exciting For Me!).  So anyway, I won a gift card from her to her ArtFire store. I purchased these very cute unfinished kewpie dolls and painted them up last night. I thought they would be so darling atop painted clothes pins so I painted some of those up too and here they are. So sweet I think! I love kewpie dolls:)) These would be really cute clipped on a gift bag or a gift package. I think I'm going to make some tags with the word "Baby" embossed in silver going downwards on them. Yep, I think so!


My Christmas Cards...

More snowman cards:)). This is the style I made to send out to my family and friends.

I used my Tim Holtz snowman die again, added red stitching around the edge of the card, red hand dyed seam binding ribbon bow, a small stamped sentiment "Holiday Cheer" tops the bow, a piece of red and white bakers twine and a piece of red Pom Pom trim across the top.

Outdoors Christmas Decorations...

I never seem to do the same thing twice. My decoration are always a little different every year which I think is a GOOD THING! Here are a few outdoor pics I snapped while I was taking a picture of our snowblob, see previous post for the snowblob.


Our First Snowman of the Year!...

My daughter and I ventured outside to make what we thought would be the best snowman on the block but, As you can see, he didn't turn out so great. He's just a blob with features. The snow was too powdery to stick so this is what we ended up with. At least he's a happy snowblob!:))

Our little dog helped too!

Snowman Cards...


OMG, I am so in love with this snowman! He's the cutest! I found him at Hobby Lobby the other day and had to have him. He's actually a Tim Holtz die cut so I can make a million if I want :)))

Shine Card...

To make this card I first cut out a chipboard star painted it with gesso and covered it in glass glitter. Then I cut pink crepe paper into streamers and glued it to the back of the star. I covered the card front with music paper and a strip of pink stripe paper at the bottom. I attached the star and then attached a pale pink bow. Last I stamped the word "shine" and attached it to the side of the star with a foam square.

Thanks Embossed in Gold...

A few cards today... I made these mostly from the same line of papers. I embossed the first card "Thanks" with gold embossing powder.


I made these two cards from a piece of an owl border sticker I recently purchased from Hobby Lobby.


Thanks for stopping by :)

Munsters Jar...

I made this really cool jar for my daughter. She loves the Munsters as do I. I hope she likes it! And I hope you do too!

I added the Munsters mansion to a green background and I placed a paper punched spooky iron fence behind the Munsters. It's hard to see in the pictures. 

The jar is illuminated inside with a flickering led tea light candle. The flicker of the candle resembles lightening and makes it look spooky.

Halloween Mantel...

I was shopping at Michaels the other day and came across a really neat paper crafting Halloween party pack by My Minds Eye, marked down to under ten bucks. I had to have it and I have been cutting, cutting, cutting and glueing all the neat party items. I made the witches party hats and put two on my mantel. I also made the banners, one is here also. I think they are really neat:)


Here is my mantel with the pumpkin my daughter, Bryanna, carved. She loves Tim Burton!

Bryanna and her pumpkins! :)
