These Joy cards are fun, I made these for my Mother in law. Every year I come up with something for her to give her coworkers, neighbors, vt'er's, and friends. I made some for the kids' teachers too. They are 11"x6". If you would like some they are {$2} each.
I love this snowman he is probably my favorite snowman thing that I've made. I have two left and they are {$10} each. the sign says snowflake collection, and there is a rusty tin can hanging from it. it is made from a picket fence board and is made to stick in the garden or a large flower pot.
This chalkboard is about 3 feet high. {$10} my kids use ours a lot all winter long.


This little guy is made out of a spindle used for stair railings. he can stand on his own and can go indors or out. {$12}

THANKS TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO HAVE PLACED ORDERS WITH ME. IT HAS BEEN FUN, AND I HOPE YOU ALL LIKE YOUR ITEMS YOU'VE PURCHASED. ANY SPECIAL ORDERS NEED TO BE PLACED WITH ME BY DECEMBER 1ST, so I can get them to you and still have time to make the projects I have planned for my own family.

WIN - IT - WEDNESDAYS

I apologize for forgetting to post my next giveaway on Wed. I spaced it. This week has been the craziest one. Just running to a million places, and my messy house is proof. I am going to clean all day so I tomorrow I can craft away. (that is a poem, well maybe not, once in a while a little flicker of talent from my moms side of the fam. will escape... then it is lost again for many more months).
This weeks giveaway will be the chenille melted snowman you can see in the post before last. If you are a crafter and want a list of crafting cupplies I wish to get rid of let me know I will email you. Or if you are looking for something in particular, let me know. Thanks (oh btw I haven't complied the list yet, so it might not be right away...but soon):)

WIN - IT - WEDNESDAYS

Here it is, this weeks giveaway. 20 Cards. Yep 20 of them, handmade and including envelopes. There is Birthday, Christmas, baby, congrats, and Thank You.

I am however, making it a little harder this time. You have to install my link button to your blog, or e-mail my link to 10 friends. Then let me know in a comment that you have done so.

Instructions; go to customize, add a gadget, add html/java, then copy and paste the code into the dialogue box.

The winner of last weeks giveaway is "Kristen". So Kris, when can you pick up your Thankful sign (JK ,I wish)

Memory book


This is the cutest mini-album I've made so far. Probably because it was a kit I bought at The Scrap Coop , so I can't take any credit, but since they aren't around anymore I'll show you how they did it.




Use the bigger envelopes and alternate which way the flap is.

Then fold them in half like so. To bind it together. Punch two holes in the crease, and use string or ribbon to hold it together. Then all you need to do is decorate it like a scrapbook.

Jewelry

I hope you will forgive me for the horrible photography. I have been having so much fun, stayin up late watching TV and making jewelery, but I sure have a lot of it.

More Aprons

Here is an idea.
I put together a little cookie baking set (you could probably just get some stuff at the $1 store) and give your girl an apron to go with it. We have given this as birthday gifts to one of her friends as well.


This apron is just for an idea, I helped my daughter sew it, it was an experiment, and its not perfect but she loves it, and she loves it when we can recycle old clothes too.


This is a mens apron, I have a ton of this fabric if I use this fabric,

Favorite Season

We are approaching everyone's favorite Season at our house. Nope..... I am talking about Birthday Season. I have seen these cute Birthday Banners all over so I whipped one out with my cricut machine. I have wanted to have a traditional banner and tablecloth to get out especialy on their Birthdays. This will;
-make Birthday decorating cheaper (since they are getting to old for themed birthdays anyhow.)
-start a new fun tradition.
-make their birthday a little more special, instead of another day leading up to Christmas.
I just wish I had a cute fireplace to hang it on. Can you believe we live in ID and don't have a Fireplace? They are fairly quick to make. If you would like one. You can bring your own paper and use my cricut, or I can make you one for {$10}. Less if you want to put it together with your own ribbon. :) Craft night Thursday Nov. 13th and Dec. 4th. emai lme for details or check my other blog.

So here is the giveaway for this week. I hope you like it. It was really fun and easy to make, I used my cricut to cut out the letters and they are just glued on. I am dieing to try and cut vinyl with my cricut, I've even bought the vinyl, I am just trying to think of the right saying. What would be cute on a big square tile?

I probably won't be posting much jewelry for a while. I ruined my camera and had to take these pix with Jeffs (cheap) pink work camera, and it takes a descent camera to take pix of tiny things.
