Valentine's Day Treat Dispenser

Greetings, All:

Happy New Year!

It has been a very busy couple of months.  I have been out-of-pocket since November due to the holidays and my 85-year old mom was hospitalized due to a fall and I had to tend to her.  No time for blogging.

I have found something that I think is so adorable and easy and also inexpensive to make from none other than Heidi Swapp, she rocks.  So, since February is coming and you need to get the treat ideas out, here is one I wanted to share with you all to make for your family and friends.

How cool is this, huh?  Love it.

Well, as always have a great week, great month, and hope to get back soon.

Enjoy the journey, we only get one.
Laugh often, live, well, love a lot, and be happy!

Happy Halloween!

Greetings All:

Just a quick stop to show you my latest project.  I wanted to make something for the girls in the office and for my family (girls) too.

I love witches, my favorite movie about witches is Hocus Pocus.  So, I wanted to do something with the same theme that I love ' Witches'.

I found this idea through Cricut.  I did have to alter the shoe a bit because I didn't want open toe shoes.  I used the Party Princess Cartridge.  I altered the shoe to have more of a witch style to it.  I didn't 'fit to page' because I wanted it to be as big as I could get it.  I used my Gypsy and moved it around and was able to get it at 12".

Hope you all enjoy.  Happy Halloween Week!


 I did remove the heart on the heel, this one cut why I don't know.
 I tried to use all Halloween paper and make them colorful.
I made four styles.
 
 
Have fun, if you have any questions let me know.  I would love to hear from you all.  Thanks for stopping by.
 
Live well, laugh often, love a lot.

Altered Halloween Coffin Swap

Greetings, All:

I wanted to share my altered Halloween coffin I made for my swap partner with http://creatingthecraftylife.com/.  I was pleased with how it came out that I will have to make one for me also.

I bought the coffins at Michael's last year when they went on sale for like pennies (bought like 9).  Of course, you can still get them but they will cost you I think $2.99 or something like that.

It was really fun doing it.  I just painted, crackled it, covered the inside with red felt and the bottom too.  I made a mini coffin shape tag album to go inside it (I mean you can only put so much in the coffin anyway before it burst).  LOL.  I added embellishments to the outside of it.  The best way for you to have a vision is to show you the results. :)

Here is my altered coffin for swap.

I hope you enjoy the project and get to crafting.  I love Halloween and I need to do more.  I am doing a stick pin swap, ATC Halloween swap, and TP mini swap.  Will post those later.

Thanks for dropping by.
Enjoy the Journey, we only get one.

Live well, laugh often, love a lot.

Ikat Rug - stencil work!

Great week, Fall is here!  My favorite time of Year!

Hello, everyone.  I just simply had to share this with you all.  I found this on Craftberry Bush blog - the most amazing idea and simple too.  Stencil Work!

Check out Lucy's site: http://www.craftberrybush.com/

There is a chance to win some stencil too from http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/ikat-stencil-uzbek.html  Go visit her site and check out how easy it is to create this beautiful art work.  You can put it on a rug, on the wall, on a chair, on furniture, basically anywhere.

I personally love the Damask and Wall Art: Chandelier Stencils.  This will be my next project.

Hope you enjoy.

 Enjoy the journey, we only get one.
Laugh often, live, well, love a lot, and be happy!
