It is time for me to make a change. I have decided to change some things about me. I have created a new blog for you to follow. It will be a better place to house all my craft postings. I am starting off the new year with a new blog.
This will be my new home. I am changing some things in my life now so I will be posting more hopefully. I want to show lots of crafts that I complete. And I believe that it can be done better here. Please still follow me and enjoy your visit in the new blog.  I hope to achieve more this year than last year. Meaning new friends, new memories, new crafts and new ideas to spread to the world of paper crafting. I really enjoy making crafts for others to see and obtain. I like to give my new paper creations to friends and family, mainly because I enjoy creating and giving and watching them smile. Thanks for reading and following me.


Hope that everyone has a great New Year's Eve!!. I will be at home ringing it in with my hubby. Hopefully we will be able to stay awake!!! If you have to go out and about drive safely. If not get a cab. Looking forward to a great New Year!!!
See ya in 2010.

New Year Coming Soon

Have you all started getting those craft projects completed for the new year? Well esp if it is a calendar project. Need to start quickly ladies. Below is one I have completed. The ingredients are simply a clip board from Walmart. Miscellaneous decorative papers, push pins, paper clips, note pad from Staples. A sheet of cork cut to fit. The end result is a cute message center to hang by a phone. What hang by a phone? Who still has a phone hanging on the wall? Any way maybe someone still does. But it looks great to me hanging on my wall in my Craft Studio. Very simple to make. I don't actually have ant measurements because I just guess at what size of the paper I wanted and where. Sorry ladies. Any way enjoy. And oh get started soon on those calendar projects!!!

Snowman Soup Filled

Remember the great Snowman Soup? Well when you get ready to fill the jars it turns into a wonderful gift. When it got closer to filling time just fill the jars with cocoa, Hershey kisses, marshmallows, peppermint. It makes a great gift for anyone. Covering the actual container was difficult to me be I did survive. Next time I believe I will just stick to a pretty basket. I think I can cover a basket better.
Thanks for looking.

CD Album

Took a new item and totally learned how to add goodies and alter it some. This is a mailing CD case altered some. I used three of them and random papers from Cloud 9 Design.
I love the look this actually gave. This would make a great thank you gift, or something small just to say hi, or I miss you. Any way I basically used the normal glue we all use, Cloud 9 Design Papers and small embellishments.

Christmas Countdown Calendar

Had a great time making this calendar. It is a cookie pan from the dollar tree. Spray painted red. And lots of embellishments. Got a grid template for the numbers and the base part. CCut out all the numbered squared and mounted on chipboard. Added a magnet on the back. After decorating all the numbers you just place them on the squares. When the day is over you can place the number on the back, (which is really the inside).
Used the cricut to cut out the black matt at the top. Add some ribbon and viola your done.

Christmas Card Time

Well I finally got started making some cards for Christmas. A dear friend of mine had a card class in a nearby town. I had to go. We made 25 cards. There was four of each design. It was great getting to play catch up with her. We haven't scrapbooked together in probably nine years. Wow it's strange how the time has flown by. And we both have grandbabies now!! It was fun making the cards and playing catch up on old times. Well enjoy and thanks for looking.

Snowman Soup??

Tried my hand at creating a cute gift. You put the ingredients in the jars for snowman soup in it.
Well I took the box apart and covered with paper and trimmed it and inked it. It was the hardest thing I have ever done.WHEW!!!

Thanks for looking.

Happy Halloween

A little late posting. Hope all you kiddos got some great candy!! And all the big kiddos got some great sweets also.
Will post a better post tomorrow.
Be safe out there!!
You know you are too old to Trick or Treat when:

10. You get winded from knocking on the door.

9. You have to have another kid chew the candy for you. 

8. You ask for high fiber candy only. 

7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, 
You lose your balance and fall over. 

6. People say: "Great Boris Karloff Mask," 
And you're not wearing a mask.

5. When the door opens you yell, "Trick or..." 
And can't remember the rest.

4. By the end of the night, 
You have a bag full of restraining orders. 

3. You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your

2. You're the only Power Ranger in the 
Neighborhood with a walker. 

And the number one reason Seniors should not go 
Trick Or Treating...

1. You keep having to go home to pee. 

No matter, have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN anyway.
