Busy, Busy, Busy~

I can't believe how fast time goes by!  I have been so busy the last 2 weeks.  I now have a new craft room, and a bigger bedroom, but both are going to take some work to be functional.  I will post pictures though as soon as I have things organized.  AND, I have been busy making cards and other things to sell in a friends store, and on top of all of that, I burned my ring finger on my right hand (I'm right handed) with the glue from a hot glue gun so badly that it blistered and made it impossible to use my hand for several hours.  PAIN!!  So, now for all of this work, I'll post some pictures of a couple of my projects.  I'd like to say in advance, I don't have names from where I got all of my ideas, I'll just say thanks now for the internet.  With the exception of the picture holder, I got that idea from someone at convention, not sure who though, no name, and the tile magnets, I had them and wondered if magnets on the back would make cute fridge magnets, and they did!

Witches Boots

I have been working on these witches boots for a couple of weeks.  I bought them from the Wood Connection and of course had to sand them, paint them, and attach the DSP, (pick your poison, $10.95).  I love how the paper looks on these boots.  It has it's own natural shadowing.  I also tried the paper rosettes for the first time, and their not as easy as they look.  (I'm probably doing something wrong.)  Anyhow, finally something ready for Halloween.  I can't say the same for the kids.  No idea what anyone is going to be for Halloween, but my boots are finished!

Pumpkin Poop

I was playing around on google looking for ideas for Halloween and I stumbled across this pumpkin poop poem, so I had to make goody bags using it.  They turned out so cute I am making 44 of them for teacher appreciation gifts.  (I'm in charge of monthly teacher gifts, so if anyone has any other cute, easy ideas I'd love to hear about them).  Here's the poem,

I started to carve a pumpkin with my carving knife and scoop
But the pumpkin got so scared, he took a little poop!
It looked so cute and funny, just like a candy treat
So I'm sharing it with you now, because you are so sweet!

Super cute poem ha?  I don't have any idea who wrote it, but like I said I found it google-ing away.  As always thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Christmas Calendar

I have FINALLY finished my "advent" calendar.  Inspired from the mini catalog, (p.36).  It just took me tons and tons of hours, and 3 days of working on it.  I did go through and write all of the instructions as I went so that I can offer these at my technique class on Friday.  I found the frame at Michael's in packs of 3.  They are 12 1/2 x12 1/2, so just a touch bigger than I needed, but I think it worked out well.  I now have 7 spots available for this class that will be offered sometime in November. 
I do have red ribbon to attach to the #6, but I can't find it right this minute, bu that will be my finishing touch.  I'd love to know what you gals think!  As always, thanks for stopping by and making my day!!
