Olde Time Christmas Block Saying

Merry Christmas Wooden Blocks

Good Morning Everyone on this cold December Morning! 
I am thinking it is going to be a great day to kick back in my pj's and grab my coffee and do some crafting after the girls head out to school. 

I hope you all enjoyed the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop this past week and I am looking forward to putting together another one soon and this time I will be offering some blog candy. 

I love the blocks that I made " Let It Snow", so I decided that I needed to make another set but this time with the saying "Merry Christmas" 

I love how quick these are to make up and fun. I have a few more sets to make up today of this one and then I have a couple more sayings that I am going to be working on too for other holidays and some everyday sayings. 

I hope you enjoyed my project post today and hope you come back often to see what else is new. 

Don't forget to stop by my Stampin Up website and see what promotions are happening this month there too and also pick up your supplies for the holidays and all you other projects that you are working on.

Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Today is the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

I have a group of some very talented Crafters that have made some wonderful projects for today. 
The theme was a 3D Wintery Theme Project
Using Blue, White, Silver or Grey. 

I unfortunately have been having issues with my computer and my internet and I am running a bit behind on this and I am so sorry. I had been trying to work on my project but needed my computer to do so and I ended up making something totally different but still in the theme as much as I could with no computer. 

I created this wonderful wooden blocks using vinyl and wood and paint. 


 My block was painted off white and  I had to end up darkening it up to a dark beige ... I used a brown wash to darken the blocks up to match my decor for the holidays... 

Thank you ladies for particapting in my Winter Wonderland Blog Hop and for all your wonderful projects and sharing them with us all... I am again very sorry that this got a little messed up and I hope that in the future you will all join me again for another blog hop... 

Here is the line up for all the talented crafters to join me... please make sure you check out each one of their projects and leave them each a comment on their projects...

Today I made it to the craft room finally and here is what I designed for the holiday gifts

Tags - 3"
Mittens - 2"


Stamp Sets Used: 
CTMH Snowflakes Season & Nature
My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes

Stampin' Up Crumb Cake
CTMH Chocolate

I used the Crumb Cake to ink all the edges of the tags and mittens. Chocolate ink was used for the to/from stamps

I love how these turned out and looking forward to making more. I have to get making about 50 more so I am off to the craft room ...

Fall Blocks

Happy Sunday! 
Hope everyone had a great weekend. 
We had a fun filled weekend.
Yesterday I took my daughters trick or treating on Main St in Danielson. They loved it and had so much fun. The weather was beautiful for the event. 

My daughters are going out as Monster High Girls. They were so cute. 

Today I decided that it would be a good day to get some crafting and creating done. I stayed in the Craft Room all day and finished up Mackenzie's Treats for school this week. 

I made 21 of the sour cream container treat holders for her class plus tags. I did not have enough Halloween Paper so we made our own with stamps and matching ink. I like how they turned out. I will post a better picture of them tomorrow. 

When I was finished with her treats, I thought it would be nice to make some thing for our decorations for the Season. 
Here is what I created. 

I used three cartridges and my gypsy to create these boxes. 

CTMH Artbooking
CTMH Art Philosophy
CTMH Artiste

I used Chocolate Ink Pad and inked all the edges on the boxes, mats, letters and leaves. I really love how they turned out and I even added a string on top of each box so I can hang them in my door way if I want too or set them on a shelf. 

Well it is time for me to go and relax with my daughters and settle them down for the night. 
Have a good night everyone....

Halloween Sour Cream Favor

Here is another Halloween Treat Favor that I made today. I am having fun enjoying my craft room once again and loving making all these cut projects for my daughters to hand out to there friends and family this year. 

Today I decided that I wanted to make a few different favors for them to hand out to dance, school and etc. So I played around and came out with this cute Sour Cream container and put a pumpkin shaped Peppermint Patty inside. 

I think these are going to be so cute for them to give out this year. I am thinking of making a few for some of my friends too. 
They don't take long at all to make and they are fun. 

I am going to add the measurements and pictures to show how they are made later. 

I just made a video on how to make yesterdays treat holder and will also post the link to it as soon as it is finished uploading. 

I hope you like my projects and come back. 

I am also happy to announce that I am back with Stampin Up as a Demostrator again and hope you will stop by my online shop and check out all the great stamps and supplies and projects.

Halloween M&M Slider Treat Holder

Happy Tuesday! 

Today I got a day of alone time. Girls were in school  and hubby was at work. 
I got to make it to the craft room without anyone in there with me and I was lost at first but then I was loving it. I decided that I needed to come up with something new for the M &M 's small bags that I bought to give out for Halloween. 

I got playing with an idea for a slider holder... I love making them for the Hot Cocoa Packets that I had out at Christmas and thought this would be a fun project to do for the M & M's. 

I used Create A Critter 2 for this project. 
I used My Pink Stamper stamp set for the greeting. 
I also used Peachy Keen Face Stamps for the Face, I love those face stamps. 

As soon as I am over this cold that I have I am thinking that this project will be perfect for me to do a video on and share with everyone on how I made these adorable little treat holders... 

well I am heading back to the craft room to make a few more of these cuties. I am going to hand them out to my daughter's dance instructors at the dance studio... 

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Happy October

Happy October Everyone! 

Sorry I have not posted in a while, it has been very crazy busy around here. We were supposed to move a couple months ago but due to some issues with the property we were unable to move to the new place. 
So we have been unpacking and reorganizing the old place to make it home again. 

I have been crafting and working on a few items for the shop and getting things ready for the Craft Shows too. And having so much fun playing in the craft room. 

Here is a couple of TP Mini Albums that I have made. I am addicted to making them. I am not actually using TP Rolls though, I am making my own tubes. 

 I love how quick they are to make and how much fun they are too. I got over 24 pictures in the First one and I am going to be adding pictures to the second one shortly. The second one is going to be all family pictures in black and white. 

I have a few more that I am working on now. 

Well I will share more later... I am off to dance class with my daughter. They have me staying very active during the week. 

have a great night everyone ....

Remodeling and Moving

Happy Wednesday to Everyone! 

Time has come we are starting the remodeling and the moving this week. 
We went and got the measurements and started the pricing of what we need for the new place to make it ours. It is going to be fun to see this all come together and exciting too. 

It is also very scary to think about moving away from a town that I have been living in for the past 13 yrs and working in the community for the past 6 years but I know it is time for a change and it will be good for us. I will still be working in this community and doing what I love. This is where it all began and I won't let it go. 

The girls are excited and looking forward to starting school and meeting new friends and new teachers. They love the idea of the new home being custom to what to what we like and how we want it. They are helping design their room and the family room. I love seeing their excitement. 

This week I will be finishing up stuff for a craft fair and then it will be time to pack up the craft room until the new studio is built. Once the new studio is finished I will be setting everything up and getting back to business. I am excited about the studio. 

On to business news:
Etsy Shop is slowing taking off and getting a few orders. 
Signed up for a few early craft fairs in the local area and now working with a few customers on custom orders for a weddings and baby showers. I am excited about this new adventure and looking forward to this new path. 

Well it is time for me to get another cup of coffee and head off to the craft room and get busy. 

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week and has a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting!

Crazy Week

Happy Sunday Fellow Crafters! 
Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe weekend. 
I have had a very crazy busy weekend. For the past two weekends I have been very busy not alot of time for the craft room. 

Yesterday we had our Plainfield Pride Day here, it a great community event and lots of stuff to see and fun for all. I spend it every year working on the ambulance and being on the EMS Crew for the event. But still get to enjoy a wonderful day with the community. 

Well did get some crafting in during the week through my stressful week. But it was fun. I woke up at 230 in the morning and couldn't sleep so I headed to the craft room and did some well needed crafting. Finished up a customers order and made up samples for the Etsy Shop, it was relaxing and fun. 

I got to use my cameo to print and cut these adorable Cupcake Toppers. 
I love making some quick projects and these are great to make. 
 Today I am going to take some time up in the craft room before my crazy week begins. It is going to be another busy and crazy week here again, and I can't wait until it starts to slow down for me, but that won't be until after the girls go back to school the end of this month and we figure out where we are moving... 

Well today is hubby birthday and it is time for the girls and me to make him some cupcakes and get his favorite dinner started. The girls are each making him a birthday card this morning too... Nice quiet family day to celebrate his birthday and then we are also going to make my mom her birthday cards too, my mother's birthday is the 21st she will be 79 this year. 

Well to all that has a birthday this month Happy Birthday and Have a wonderful day...

Baby Mini Album Onesie

Good Morning and Happy Weekend Everyone! 

I have been busy in my little Crafting Corner all week... I have been making up a few things and getting them listed on my Etsy Shop. 

I have alot of Mini album ideas that I am going to be working on and can't wait to share them with you all. 

I have been thinking of doing a videos of after I finish the mini albums and showing them off and maybe help give out some ideas to you. 

Well my recent album I wanted something that was a shape other than the basic shapes so I found a Onesie shape and decided that would make an adorable album and cut it out and went from there. I have made a few samples of the cut in different sizes to see what ones would work the best and to my surprise they all would make some wonderful mini albums and be so much fun to make and give as gifts. 

Here is the one that I completed and it is cut at 7" and it is from Life's a Party Cartridge. 

I also used my B is for Boys Cartridge to make the little toy on the front of the onesie. 
I tied a few pieces of ribbon on the rings. 

These two pages I loved making them. 
I cut out another onesie and then cut in half to make a pocket and cut some paper to make tags and then used a pin brad to hold them together. 
On the yellow page I made a fold out mat to add more pictures inside of it and then popped it up so there are tags behind it for even more pictures or journaling. 
I took some buttons and paper clips to use to hold the fold out closed and put buttons on the bottom like a real onesie. 

These two pages are just very simple just mats to add larger photos to them. 

 the one page has another flip out album that can add two more pictures and there is a velcro closer on it to keep it closed. On the yellow one did the pocket again and put some tags in the pocket and kept together with a duck brad. 

these two pages were fun too. another flip out mini album  and then a mat on the last page with a twine to hold two charms and two mini clothes pins. 

I really had alot of fun making this Mini
Album and can't wait now to make a little girl one. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my little project and stop back to see more of the projects. 

Have a Great Weekend and Stay Safe.

Key Chains

Happy Sunday!

I have been working hard in the craft room the past week and loving it. It feels so wonderful to be creating again..... 

Well the other day it was too hot to get into the craft room so Hubby showed me how to make these wonderful Key Chains and I love them and they are something that I can take with me when we are traveling and make in less the 10 minutes... 

I made about 10 of them the other day and was having a blast making them. 
Last night Hubby and I decided that we were going to escape for a little bit and go to the Casino Mohegan Sun and catch a Free concert at the Wolf Den. 
Craig Morgan was playing there and I just love his songs and he is so funny too... 

It was a great night and loved the show. It felt good to get out for a few hours with no kids. 
Well it is time for me to get back to the craft room and get a few more projects completed for My Etsy Shop. 
Stop by today and See all the wonderful items I have listed...

OMG Been a Long Time

Wow it is has been a few months since I have updated my Blog... I am so sorry. 
We have alot of family matters happening and trying to get through them all and get the girls back on track. Now with Summer Break here it is calming down a bit and the girls are outside more often playing and enjoying life. 

I haven't been in the craft room since March or April, not really been motivated to be in there. But in the past few days I have been spending alot of time in there and getting back to creating again. 

I have opened up a "New" Etsy Shop. Come on over and check it out. I am excited about this new adventure and looking forward to sharing again. 

 Click the link above and it will take you to my new shop.

This is a card that I did make back in May for a friends husband. I love how it turned out and it was my first time using a cartridge that I bought almost a year ago for my husband but never got a chance to use it for him. 

My Daughter Mackenzie in March making a card for a class mate's birthday. She loved it, I gave her free range of the craft room. She had a blast. 

Her finished card that she made. She used "Create A Critter 2" for this adorable lion card.  She was so proud of herself for making this card with little help from me. 

Here are a few little projects that I have made of the past couple of days. 

First is a Mini Album (Very simple)

Here are a few different Gift Card Holders


Here are a couple more, my favorite is the "I love you Latta" one...


 It is feeling really good to be back to creating again. 
I have missed it. 

Well sorry for such a long post. 

Remember to come by and check out my Etsy Shop today...
