Birthday Fishing :)

My friend found this cool looking card on Pinterest, and I wish I knew who it was to give credit, but it was all on her smart phone :)  Anyway, we made our own pattern by sight and created one. I think it turned out pretty neat! One 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper will make two! Hope you like it!

Creating Crafty Storage

I've repurposed the old packaging for these jars by cutting peek-a-boo holes in the fronts, adhering a white panel behind and painting the rest black to showcase what's inside the jars. And I threw in two paper flowers  I've made since getting the Stampin Up blossom punch for Christmas! Thanks MIL!

Updated (Brass) Candlesticks

My first attempt at a painting and sealing project. The painting went ok but you can see the mistakes. The sealant went horribly wrong, it pooled in places and there are visible flaws. The photography covers it nicely, but in person you can see it. Not sure if painting is really up my alley! lol  But hey, I gave it a shot. I like the new contemporary look.  And the snowflakes are removable, they are only plastic :)

Creative Christmas Tags!

These are a couple of Christmas tags I put together using stamping, inktense pencils, fussy cutting, vellum and tearing. I think they turned out cute. The Joyous one has some 3D effects which are hard to catch in the photo. I've submitted these to the for their weekly challenge.

Snow Day 2012!

So I took some photos of the blizzard, and then thought I'd grab some candids of things in the house. Here you can see my little Christmas tree (undecorated) and my two cats, Leinie and O'Malley :)

Thank you Kittie Kraft!

What a great card, a masterpiece! I couldn't help scraplifting this idea and hand cutting my own templates to create a similar look. First I'll post her card, then mine so you can see them both!
