Holiday Planners









LOL I can get over how cute these penguins are!!! Anyway I have been hard at work making items for upcoming holiday sales that I will be renting booths at. I made these holiday planners from a composition book! Inside I added the pocket for receipts, and I also added some optional tabs which are in a little bag which I will slip into the pocket. You'll see that I added some of those cute paper beads I posted previously! I love these things! And what a cute way to stay organized for the holidays! Stay tuned more of these will be following!!




Want to get your hands on one??? You can order this one for only $5 plus shipping! Ask me for details!

Handmade Paper beads

Okay so I came across a blog where it showed how to make paper beads. Can I tell you how HOOKED I am on making these??? The two that are more of a matte finish I made those with Modge Podge. The others I made using UTTE (Ultra thick embossing powder). They are super easy to make, and they are very addicting!!! Stay tuned for some projects that I made using these little gems!

Happy Birthday - a piggy card


My daughter helped me with a craft room yard sale I had in July and she kept admiring this stamp. It is a rolling stamp I had FOREVER but just never used. She LOVES pigs, well, I should say she loves pork and bacon! LOL. Anyway she kept playing with it and then made the comment that her birthday was coming up soon. So I new just what to use when it was time to make her birthday card! I added some embossing and some satin ribbon and Viola! She loved it! Needless to say, it was removed from the yard sale pile, and now has a safe place along with the rest of my rolling stamps! :)
