I've been a craftin....

I have been crafting but not as much as I like. I will post some cards I've made.

These were made for my late husbands family. The top one used some of the things I bought on the HSN 24 hour crafting shows. I made a video of my haul and as soon as I can get it going I will post.

I have another card I made for my dad but I will post that later.

Have a great day!!

Hello There Crafty Crafters!

I have returned with much news both personal and crafty. I have truly missed sharing all my crafty goodness...which honestly hasn't been much because of my personal life. Lots of HUGE changes and now I am able to be able to craft more...for the moment. 

Let's start with the personal...
1. I am a single mama now with my two girls. 
2. I moved 
and now....

I have my own craft room!!

Well sort of...I share it with my mom who lives with me. 

I can't wait to show you what my room looks like and see what all of you been up too. 

I will post pics soon! I will also start videos too once I get my camera hooked up.

Jars of love

Wanted to show some of the jars I made for the children to place their flowers they brought their teachers for appreciation week. 
This is a side view
Here they are in the bin ready for delivery.

I used the close to my heart cart artiste. I can't say enough great things about it, it's so versatile. I love all the images on it. I recommend for this image to make sure you use a good mat and fresh blade, I was toward the end of mine and had a hard time knocking out all the little intricate pieces. Thank goodness my mom helped, I had almost 30 to make. I designed with Microsoft word for the circular wording and a strip of paper to wrap around the jar. I was hoping the atg adhesive would be strong enough but some came apart. Next time, I will use ribbon to wrap round and possibly the red tacky tape. 

Thank for looking!

Some items I've made for school

Hello everyone! I recently downloaded the blogger app so now I'm able to get on more hopefully! I was on my daughters school PTO and made various crafts. I recently bought the martha stewart circle maker from HSN. I used it to make a doily for a gift to the teachers for teacher appreciation week. 
I love using it! I got many compliments on it. And now it hangs on the cabinet doors in the teachers lounge. 
We purchased various k-cups for the teachers to enjoy. 

This punch kit came with other designs but this one I love the most. I have made a layout with it too. It can make circles from 6 inches to 12. The hardest part when cutting out a 12 in. circle is making sure you have it directly in the center of the paper. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Helping out a friend :)

Hello crafty crafters!
I have returned to show you something I help create for my sister's friend who was graduating nursing school. Of course, I went in Pinterest for some inspiration. I bought dr. check up for this project. Here's some of the stuff I created.

Here is the banner all together
We also made labels for the medicine bottle treats. My sister helped create the label using I highly recommend using it to print your own. 
We also made these. It was my first time working with candy melts.

Here is a shot of all the decor we put up and made. 
She loved it and I was happy to help. I love making banners and it was fun. 

Thanks for looking!

A Little Inspiration from my friends...

Howdy Hey there!

I have been missing connecting with you! My thoughts would drift back to you and all the fun things we shared. I would giggle at some of the stuff you posted( You sure were funny!) and you would give me great advice or the pat on the back I needed.

I learned so much from you and love watching you grow and show me all the new things you've learned. I still think of you often and wish we had more time together...

So in honor of you I will post this

I was inspired to make these pencil toppers from Crafting With Katie on You Tube. Her channel is I had to modify the pencil holes because my pencils were too big to fit in the ones she showed on her video. I made over 40 of these for my daughter's classmates and my girl scout troop. I also made santa claus ones but forgot to take pics of them. Thank you for always inspiring me to try new things.

Until the next project,
