Something new and something old!

Ah, I love Mondays!  Don't hear that much do you!

I love Mondays because weekends tend to be very busy and hectic but Mondays are great because the kids are back in school and I have time at home - BY MYSELF!  Time to work, time to get caught up and time to clean up!  

I have to confess today was more of a time to work and get caught up day but 2 out of 3 ain't bad!

Here is my something new!  It's my something new because I made it today and because I used a "newer" set of mine.

122760 Field Flowers 30.95 (wood) or 122762  21.95 (clear)

And it's something old because it uses On Your Birthday which is an old favourite of mine.  I love the birthday sayings in it plus the card looks "old" or "antiqued" with the inking, dots, and crumpled edges.

111664 On Your Birthday ON SALE 20.98  reg 41.95
 Don't miss the great products on sale during the Online Extravaganza  ending Nov 30th.   Go check it out!

Hello everyone

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and weren't blown away in the windstorm yesterday - yikes!  That was CRAZY weather!

Sorry for the lack of new posts and creations but Nov is a bit of a whirlwind month and once one event is done it seems like I'm on to preparing for the next.  On my list tomorrow is to create one new thing - just one so hopefully I'll get my creative Mojo back and it will be here to stay!

I held my Christmas Advent Calendar class on the weekend and made one extra kit.  All you need is adhesive and a free afternoon and you will have a lovely creative treat calendar for your kids.

 The kit includes EVERYTHING to complete the calendar excluding treats and a stand.  The cost is $50 and have only 1 so contact me ASAP if you are interested.

Craft Night at Sam Livingston

Last night I was SUPER busy at Nathan's school Christmas Craft night.

I created two of the crafts for tonights event and had MANY helpers prep for this evening.

Candy Tags
We used the super awesome cello bags and red and green M & M's.

And Snowman Kisses

This one I used the Stampin Up Store containers and lots of punched pieces.  
So fun, but so tired now!

Reindeer extras :)

Hi everyone!

I forgot to share with you one more craft fair item I had on the weekend.

When I was shopping one day I saw these in the candy aisle (where I hang out often) and though hmmm  . . . wouldn't those make another great candy treat for Christmas.  So I came up with this.

 It's a little hard to see but I made clear milk cartons with the milk carton die and created a little punch art reindeer.

 Here's the back of the carton.

Sorry for the no post yesterday.  It's been a bit tough trying to get caught up after being gone for most of the weekend!

I promise I'll have something new to share - soon!

Christmas Craft Fair #6

This is absolutely, 100% the favourite thing I made because it involved a lot of stamping but it also involved punch art too!

Each card kit contains a set of 10 stamped note cards and envelopes and a mini pencil crayon set for the child to personalize the card AND . . .

 they come complete with their own carrying case!!!  These wooden boxes hold all the supplies and would make great birthday or Christmas presents.

I made 4 dinosaur sets, 4 princess sets and 4 Build a bear sets! That's all - once they are gone, they are gone!!

Thanks for stopping by!  More to share tomorrow!

Christmas Craft Fair #5

These were pretty popular at the trade fair I attended in September so I thought maybe new craft fair attendees might like some kisses.

And some nugget tins!  

 Each tin contains one dozen individually wrapped Hershey Chocolates. Great teacher gift or hostess gift!

You MUST check back tomorrow to see one of my favourite things I made for the Christmas Craft Fair!

Here's another something for the baker on your list, a neighbour or someone that is hard to buy for.  Pass along your favourite 4 recipes to a friend. I only made a couple of these but I thought they were pretty cute :)

 I {heart} these houses!  They were for sale in the last Holiday mini catalogue but now they are on the clearance rack.  While I still want to create a class with these houses I went a little overboard and bought bushels full!  This would make a fun craft for the kids to create over the holiday break! 

Here is a Christmas decorated version I made last year.

As excited as I am to be in this craft fair I'm learning that they are A LOT of work.  If it will just get here already then I can stop coming up with new things to make!

On to my creative post for today!  I have several new customers that saw my Owl Together class last year and begged for me to run it again so here goes.

Register between Nov 1-30.   You will receive your Owl punch in early Nov and homework to make the owls before the class date.

Sat Jan 7 1-4 - lots of space :)
