Brrrrrrr its cold outside!

Nothing like a cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmellows  to  warm me up.  My scrappy place is in the basement and it is a little chilly sometimes! But I am about to warm up with lots of ideas for my next Make A Wish Album for a young 16 year old girl who went to Hawaii (my dream vacation). I will be posting pictures of the pages as I get them done. So check back often!
  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and will have a safe and Happy New Year!

The 12 Tags of christmas

Wow lots of fun making this tag over at my friends house. Thank you Vicki! If you followed Tim Holtz blog you seen the cool tags he made. I love making the tags because I learn so much from him. I made one of my own  designs too, I will post that later!  I probably wont be able to do any more of his tags until after Christmas because I still haven't finished my Christmas shopping, ugh
Have a great rest of the week everyone!

Quick project

I made this for my daughter to put in her office. It turned out so cute I made my daughter in law one too! They are just little boxes filled with a block of green flower foam. The little holders are made from wire that I wrapped around a large paint brush and shaped to hold a photo. Add some ribbon and some flower picks and your done.
Happy crafting everyone!

Advent Calendar

Hi all, I hope everyone is having fun shopping or putting up your Christmas decorations. I got my tree up , but not the lights outside yet. Hopefully this weekend I can talk my son into helping me put them up. :) I have been working on this Advent calendar this week and finally finished it. It is not hard to make, it comes in kit form and you just put it together, paint it and decorate it. You can put little candies or gifts in the little boxes. I think I will put Hersey's Kisses.

My daughter got a new job so now she needs something cute for her office. I think that will be my next project!

Have a great day!
