Christmas is coming!!!!!

I know it's only September and we haven't even gotten through Halloween yet. But I can't wait for Christmas. It's not the receiving of gifts for me! I love giving gifts, dressing in warm sweaters and pj's, watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation over & over again. The smells and feeling of the holidays. This year I'm decking the halls with everything hand made, from the tree ornaments, banners, tree skirt, and stockings hung by the fire. Well not by the fire because we don't have a fire place, lol, but you get the idea!!! These bird house started out as raw wooden bird houses that you can find in the dollar bins at Michaels or Joanns Arts & Craft stores!They measure about 3 to 5 inches tall and 2 to 3 inches wide, perfect size to hang on your tree. I made these for a swap on Two Peas in a Bucket. The groups I signed up for was Gingerbread group, obviously, and Traditional Christmas colors! Here's the raw bird houses after I got done with them!!! Hope you like!!!

Sorry for being MIA!!!

Hello Everyone,
Sorry for being MIA!!! It's been a really busy time of year for me. My little girl is turning 4 (gosh time sure does fly), cake orders, swaps, and everyday life. As for the blog give away, just waiting for 79 more people to join!!! So if you know anybody that's crafty please let them know. I plan on taking pictures later today or tomorrow of all the goodies!!!!!

On another note... I have some pictures to share with you all on what I've been up too. Hope you enjoy!!!

Here is a paper bag mini album, made to look like a purse. I wish I could take credit for the assembly of this mini album, but the credit has to go to the amazing Kathy Orta!!! from Paper Phenomenon!!! She did a Ustream class on this album using DCWV, Couture paper line! If you're interested in seeing how this was made check out her blog, click on the Ustream button, and the class is called Confessions of a Shopaholic!! The journaling tags in this album is also available on her blog!!!! All the pictures posted here of this mini doesn't even come close covering all the pages and nooks and crannies in this mini, but I thought 20 picture should be enough to share.

Here are some Circus ATC cards for a swap hosted on 2peas




Next up are some altered rolodex cards, also for a swap on 2peas!!




Here is another ATC for a Graphic 45 "Magic of Oz" swap with a wonderful group of ladies on facebook!


Here is a altered baby food jar. I think this would be really cute to keep on your scrap table to store brads, eyelets, or any other small scrappy items!!


Well, that's all have for now. I am working on some other "stuff" I'll share with you soon. Stay tuned for pictures on blog give away pictures!!!

Not Paper Crafting but....... I think it's still ART!!!

Hello everyone!!!! It's not been such a great week. Both my babies are in the middle of being sick or getting over being sick, and I think I have strep throat, uuuuuuuuggggghhhhh! Anyways I thought I would share with you all another passion of mine. I know it's not paper crafting but never the less I still think it's art. Everything you see was made by hand by me, including the carving to get a 3d cake (like Lightning McQueen). Everything on or around these cakes are edible. The first four pictures are of the cake I just did this past weekend. Like I said before I know it's not paper art but I still consider this an art form. I've been think that in the future I might take a class or to to improve my abilities, but have ultimately decided to pre sue an degree in Graphic Design. Someday I hope that I will be able to design my own line of patterned papers. Hope you all enjoy the pictures!!!!
