Merry Snowmen

Now, if these are the cutest little row of snowmen, I don't know what are! :) I love coloring their hats and scarves, and using the chunky glitter for the snow is perfect!

Felt Flurry Christmas

This will be the first of many Christmas card posts I have coming. I decided that if I started earlier this year, I would have a better chance of getting them done on time! (and not stress about them).

This card uses quite a few retired items . . . I hung onto the fabulous felt flurries from the Holiday Mini last year. They look great on a Christmas card, and the card is perfectly mailable with a few flurries on it! I used Tombow adhesive to adhere them to the card.

Stamp Set: Best Yet (retired)
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White, Ski Slope DSP (retired)
Accessories: Dimensionals, Felt Flurries (retired), Baja Breeze Ribbon (retired)

Now if only we would get some real flurries around here . . .

Tile Coasters Class

Okay guys! The tile coaster class is here! These make the perfect gift for someone (or yourself!!) You can personalize them, or leave them generic and have some on hand! I am here to help you create beautiful hand-made gifts for this holiday season!!!!

I will provide the tiles and the stamps (you can use whatever I have on hand) - you provide the creativity! I will have samples on hand for you to look at, but you can do whatever you like! I have 8 or 10 craft ink pads - if you have any you want to bring - feel free!

Here are some reminders of tiles I have done here.

So - here's the deal. $8 gets you a set of 4 coasters (with felt pads on the back so that you don't scratch your furniture) wrapped up in ribbon.

My house - this Sunday the 8th. I'll do it open house style from 4-7:30 p.m., so you can come when it is convienent for you!!!

RSVP to my email: or cell 697-1387 if you are coming and how many sets of coasters you wanna do!!!! Let me know by Friday the 6th so that I have enough supplies on hand!

Candy Stocking Stuffer

Halloween is over, which means it is time to start thinking about Christmas! I don't know about your family, but my family gets really excited about stocking stuffers. Overboard, is actually a better word! This year there are going to be lots of handmade stuffers! These may find their way into a few stockings . . .

The ribbon is tied around the candy bar and works as a slide to get the candy out of the belly band wrapper. These candies were on sale 2/$1 last week at Walgreens. I sure do LOVE a sale!

Stamp Set: Christmas Punch
Ink: Wild Wasabi (retired)
Paper: Real Red, Wild Wasabi (retired), retired DSP
