Hanging Jewelry Box

I have made this type of jewelry holder for some time now.  Unfortunately, my hands hurt so bad that this will probably be the last one I make.  Screwing in the hooks is just to taxing.  The electric drill is no good for starting the holes as it gets caught on the fabric.  Ahhhh gotta love getting older and having carpal tunnel (LOL)


This one is mine



this one I made for a friend




This one is much bigger.  I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.

Wednesday

Go make something already!



It seems like I am crafting all the time. Really, I do more watching USTREAM and You Tube than I do crafting.  I keep saying that I need to art and stop watching other people art.  So tonight I was watching Must love Paper (Jess) USTREAM show and I watched her make a card.  From that inspiration, tips and the encouragement in the chat I declared that I was going to the craft room to make a card.  Here is what I came up with.




 I got these tags in a swap and they were laying on my desk so I used them. The "hello" stamp is from Stamping Up (a set I found for .99 cents at the thrift store).  The bakers twine is from a RAK and the papers are all scraps. Brads are from my stash. Colorbox chalk ink.

Bakers twine organization

For those of us who only have a few colors of bakers twine, this is a good way to store it.

Wedding Scrapbook



I made this album for my friend.  It was sort of a  non-traditional wedding.  I hope she likes the album.

While I can no longer claim that I am new to blogging, all the technology that goes with it is like Greek.  I recently ran out of space for uploading pictures.  So now  I am playing around with resizing photos.  Smaller pictures allow me to have more blog storage space, but the picture quality is not so good.  Still when you see the Smilebox you can get the picture (no pun intended -lol)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.

Thursday

Gingerbread dough


I got this idea from the ladies at my Thursday scrap group.  It is the ideal gift for the person who has everything.

 
The poem says: 
Gingerbread men with yummy icing
are oh so good and extremely enticing
I set out to make a dozen or two
but ran out of time. oh what do I do

So instead of the cookies I tied a bow
your own personal serving of holiday dough!

I changed a few of the words, but you get the gist of the pun.  This gift was adored by the recipient although he refused to open and use the money. 

The gingerbread mad is a cricut cut.  The rest is all scraps.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.

Wednesday

More gifts

I went crazy making these little candy holders.  I gave them out everywhere...the post office, the town office, the chiropractor, the grocery store--I mean EVERYWHERE!  Boy was that fun just to see people's faces light up with surprise. 


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.
