Desk Top Calendar 2018

 Happy New Year to all you paper crafters!!! So glad you could stop by. I have to tell you I was totally a party animal last night on New Years Eve. O.k. fine not really. My husband and I stayed home.Our Grandkids spent the night. Made homemade pizzas and watched a movie. We did watch the ball drop in times square. My grand daughter brought us things to blow at midnight. 

The weather has been so cold here. I think last night got below 0. That's just to cold for me. These are the days I wish I had some warm place to go like Florida.  

We had a very nice Christmas, I just love watching my Grand Children opening their gifts. 

Wanted to share one of the little handmade gifts that I made for my daughter. 
It's a desk calendar for her desk at work. 

I had so much fun making this. The white plastic holder was originally made to insert a picture in, I just removed the piece of acetate. 
My sister and I went shopping at a discount store in Louisville Kentucky one day and I found it. It was only a little over a dollar. Would have gotten more but it was the only one.
(I need to go back to that store).

Printed the calendars on my computer and got the metal rings at the dollar tree. The funnest part was choosing the papers for each month. 

I thought It turned out so cute and she really liked It. Today Is the January 1st. I wonder If she remembered to take It to work this morning. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my little crafty project. Hope you come back to visit me this year. 

Hope all you paper crafter's have a wonderful year. Looking forward to seeing what you all create this year. 

Again, Thanks for stopping by. Happy New year!!!

Christmas Crochet Ornaments

 Hello Crafty Friends, so glad you could stop by. Today Is Christmas Eve. This morning went to Church. My niece McKinley and her husband was In from New Mexico. Was so exited that we got to hear her sing Silent Night. She did a wonderful job.

 Last night we had our Christmas bingo party at my Uncle Ottie's Church. He Is the pastor there. We have always had it on Christmas Eve but switched to a day early so to help with the families that have to travel far distances. Had a great time and the food was great to.

I thought I would share a couple of pictures of the ornaments that I made my family, friends and Grand kids teachers. I always make crocheted ornaments every year. 
They all Loved them. 

I also made some red,white and blue ones for my family members in the military. But forgot to get a picture of them. 
Was going to take a picture of all of them together. But since I forgot I just took pictures of the two I had saved for myself.

So far these were the easiest ornaments I have made. Worked up fast. Put stuffing on the inside. 

If you would like  to try to make some of these simple ornaments you can go to youtube and search Simple Crochet Ornaments. It Is a guy that made these on his channel. He goes by Crouton Crafts.

 Hope you enjoyed seeing them and hope you give them a try. Time for me to go make a big pot of Chili. It's a family tradition to have chili on Christmas Eve. 

 Merry Christmas to you All !!!

Painted Harvest Birthday Card!

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Spent the day with my husband and sister. Did a little shopping. Went In Hobby Lobby. They had 80% off of their Halloween decorations. That was so fun! 
Also went to the dollar store. Those little things for a dollar add up real quick. Had a good lunch at Olive Garden. Then ended up going to the Wal-Mart. I have a really bad back and knee. I seriously didn't think I was going to make It. I was never so glad to get home and rest.

 Well enough about my day, I want to Share a Card that I made for my Daughter. My little girl Is now 33. It actually doesn't seem that long ago that I was 33. Time goes by to way to fast. 

For the card that I made her, I used the new stamp set from Stampin Up called Painted Harvest. LOVE- LOVE-LOVE this Stamp Set. 
As soon as I seen It, I knew I had to have It.

She LOVED It! I knew she would. She always places her Birthday Cards from me on her large window ledge. She has 5 sitting there now. I'm already thinking what kind I will make her next year.

Here Is a list of things I used to make the card.

Stamp Sets-
Painted Harvest, Well Scripted and Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Cardstock- Crumb Cake, Summer Sun, Very Vanilla
Ink- Cajun Craze, Summer Sun, Early Expresso, Old Olive
Ribbon and Siquins

Loved the way It turned out. Looking forward to playing with different color combinations with the flowers.

That's It for me. I'm exhausted and In pain, going to go make me a cup of coffee and nothing else.  Thanks for stopping by. 

My Beautiful Daughter Jade!

Halloween Test Tube Treat Holders and Tags

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Was hoping to get this post In yesterday on Halloween, but It just didn't happen. I never know how many Trick or Treater's I will get. On average around 16. This year I only got 8. I was kind of disappointed. ( I can predict that I will be eating some little chocolate candy bars later today). 

My Grand Children, this year was a Black Cat and some scary looking guy, I think It was Jason. Not really Into the scary movies. But Walker thought it was fun and Scarlett looked so cute In her Black kitty outfit.

I made them some treat bags,with some goodies In It. Also had toothbrush and toothpaste In It. Made a cute little tag that say's BRUSH YOUR FANGS. So Cute! The Fangs stamp is from Stampin Up. Also I made them little treat holders and put the test tubes In them from Stampin Up and filled them with a little candy.

Here are a few pictures I took before they got here.

 Also used the new Cat Punch from Stampin Up. Stamped Oct 31st on stitched circles. Used Halloween Twine around one cats neck.
Rounded the corners of the treat box with the envelope punch board.

Those were so simple and fun to make. It uses a piece of 4x11 cardstock. There Is a video on youtube that I followed to make these. 
If you would like to try making some, there are several video's of them. Just type in Test Tube Treat Holders.  

Thought those little tags were so Cute. Colored them with Stampin Up Markers. Added a little red to the pointed teeth. Tied them with Bakers Twine.

I forgot to get a picture of Walker and Scarlett (What was I thinking) but my daughter took one, so thought I would share a photo of them.

Walker has got the scary look down for sure and that's the cuttest Black Kitty I have ever seen. They are getting so big. 

Now that Halloween Is over, let the Christmas Music begin!!!!! 
Honestly I have already been listening to It. (LOVE IT)!!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you stop by again. Happy Day to you and God Bless.

Card for Debbie

  Hi and thanks for stopping by. Thought I would post a picture of the Card that I made for my Sisters birthday. She Is the big 60. Since her birthday Is In the fall and she loves flowers. I knew her card had to have a flower on It. 

Kind of not happy with the way it turned out, because I wasn't really able to blend the colors together on the flowers. My blender pen Is completely dry. So not the greatest but I still think she will like It.

The stamp set that I used is by Multi Crafts called Floral Fantasy. Cut the oval out on my Cricut. The For You Is from the Stampin Up  Stamp Set called Chalk Talk. Used a circle punch to punch It out.
Also used the Brick Embossing Folder. 
Cardstock  used- Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Inks Used- Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Old Olive.
Love the twine ribbon that I used. called Boho Modern. Gives the card a little rustic feel.

My Sister's Birthday Party Is later today. Hoping she likes It. I'm sure we will have a great time. We all are crazy when we get together. But first I have to go to Physical Therapy on my back. I really don't want to go. Oh well at least I have something fun to look forward to afterwards.
 Thanks for stopping by. Come back again. Hoping you have a good day and God Bless!
