A few more items for the bazaar

these are some really quick recipe card holders that I threw together for the upcoming bazaar and a calendar made completely from scraps that I had left over from other projects. Even the cardboard center of the calendar is from the cuttlebug embossing folders I have and saved. I saw a great video on this on Leah's Desktop Dictonary that gave me the idea to try it... here is the url She and her two friends produce some really great video tutorials on how to make just about everything you could possibly think of... check her website out it is definitely worth it!

More decorative tiles...Christmas is coming!

Hi everyone, where does the time go? It seems the older I get the quicker time flies, especially for those of us who are creative crafters! Christmas is just right around the corner already and I am busily making tiles for a craft bazaar and for gifts for family and friends. Here are just some of the tiles that I have made lately, and as always, thanks for looking.

Another Swap

Ok, so I told you already I am hooked on swaps! I love it, each time you get a package, even though you know basically what is coming, it is so exciting to open the box and see the contents close up! Everytime you get a return package it is like a holiday! Well this time I joined the Anything but a card Christmas Swap - again Jes aka munkee is the host, I trust her implicitly! She is prompt, keeps on top of her swap and always checks her msgs! To me, these things are important and I truly appreciate her hostessing skills! These are the items I am swapping this time. I made 6 santa suit cocoa mugs, filled with cocoa and a chocolate/peppermint stirring spoon, as well as 6 snowflake bracelets packaged in a powdery blue cardstock box with a silver bow and an extra snowflake charm attached. Can't wait to see what I get in return! TFL

Snowman cards returned

These are the adorable cards I recieved in return for the snowman cards I sent...again, so much talent on the cricut message boards. I am definitely hooked! So much work went into these! the lil snowmen in a bucket raise up out of the bucket to show the clever!

Halloween Swap recieved.

Hi everyone, so sorry I have been a bit neglectful of my poor blog as I have been heavy into my finals for class. But fall semester is finally over for me! wooohoo, now I will have time to work on my crafts!

I wanted to share with you the things I recieved in return for the halloween swap that I entered. There are some very talented ladies out there. I think I truly have become addicted to swapping! Ps if you ever want to join a swap on the cricut messageboard, JES aka munkee is an awesome hostess, and very quick to return items swapped. Check her out, she has posted a new one on the Rak, swaps & crops board for... I believe it is giftcard holders. I didn't join this one because I make the majority of my gifts to give so rarely ever have a use for a giftcard holder...although Jes made one for movies that would be so worth buying a giftcard for movies and putting it in a movie night gift basket. It is so adorable check it out here: . Now without further ado...the wonderful gifts I recieved in return for the items I sent
