I did this t-shirt for a firefighter friend of mine for Christmas! He loves Black Helmet gear and has the same pic, that I put on the back of the t-shirt, on the back window of his pickup. The front is a firefighter logo, but instead of all the fire stuff in the middle, I removed that and put the town name with his name and badge number to personalize it a bit more, he loved it! :) TFL

More Christmas Projects

There are just a few of the projects I worked on today in between wrapping presents and making Christmas candies! 
The Mug images are two different logos from the video game Black Ops, which my nephews are totally enthralled with.
The Gourmet Doggie treats (which contain no chocolate) are for some sweet little doggies that belong to some family members. I was going to staple them on to the ziplock, but decided to use some mini brads to hold them on instead, that way their owners can easily remove the bone insignia's and use then for a scrapbook or keepsake without damaging them.  The sign is done in aunt Valerie's favorite color - purple~! :)  TFL


Did a Dollar store mug for Uncle Randy for Christmas.  He is a big Kansas City fan.  Hope he likes it! :)  TFL

Chicken Cross Stitch

Here is a picture of the "Early to Rise" cross stitch picture I did for my boyfriend's mom for Christmas.  She collects roosters and has them all over her house.  Thought this would be a nice addition to her collection.  Sorry about the glare on the glass.   TFL

Above Rubies Studio Give aways!

For all of you who aren't yet familiar with "Above Rubies Studio", here is a really fun and excellent way to get acquainted with it!  Megan is currently having a 7 days of Christmas giveaway and the best part of this giveaway is that the gifts are wrapped presents, so you have to wait with excitement to see what you get, if you are the lucky winner!  How fun!

More Christmas stuff!

First off I made a floating frame sign, as a Christmas gift, for my aunt Marilyn who loves to cook.

Then I worked on some stocking stuffers for my grandkids.  The Snowman wrapper fits a full size hershey bar and was the friday freebie from My Scrap Chick.  The tic tac cover was just a spur of the moment thing, I just cut the covers and then used the christmas tree from the potpourri basket cartridge. TFL

More Christmas Presents

I love making these signs.  They make wonderful gifts.  The tile was my first try at splitting a font.  I watched Denise's from Paper Pastime's tutorial on the Smartbuygal forum.  She does a wonderful job at explaining how to achieve this effect.  In fact she explains it step by step so there is no mistaking what you need to do next!  This one is for my nephew and his family.  I know you can't see it in the photo but there is a halo over Renae as she passed away when she was a baby.  The halo I did in black as well but it has irridescent stickles on it.

The other two are both for Christmas as well.  One is for my boyfriends oldest daughter and the other is for his cousin who is an avid wine connoisseur.  I just really liked the the saying, though I am not a struck me as funny :)  TLF

Crocheted Neck Warmer

I crocheted this neck warmer with the pineapple crochet shape for the ends of the scarf, but due to the long fur, It is really hard to see the pattern unless you examine it close up. I used regular redheart yarn in black along with a single strand of the fringe yarn to make it furry and fuller. It is really pretty in person. The picture doesn't do it much justice. I didn't really have a pattern to follow except for the pineapple part. I winged the rest of it. One end actually threads through the area just above the other end.   One more Christmas present down!  TFL

HTV School Shirt

At my granddaughter's primary school they have "Pirate Friday" every single friday throughout the year. It helps the kids develop a sense of pride and gets them involved in school spirit. On Friday's the kids are encouraged to wear Red & black to show their school spirit, so I decided to make her a Pirate shirt as a Christmas present. Hope she likes it. The Pirate is on the front of the "Red" shirt which looks kinda "Pink" in the pic (I need a new camera I think!), and the back side has her last name on it. TFL

Crocheted Blanket

This is a Christmas present for my son. As each of my new grandchildren are born, I make them a special blanket as a keepsake. Last year my son asked me why I never made him a blanket, I told him that I did when he was little, to which he replied, "well I want one now that I am big" I thought he was joking and asked him if he was serious and he said, "yes, I am always getting yelled at in the winter by the kids because I steal thier blankets you made them because they are so warm" I just kinda laughed and said, "whatever" So I thought I would supprise him and make him is own "Big Boy" blanket for him to cuddle with...LOL anyway here is what I did for him.
The pattern was kind of fun and was done in granny squares, but in a very different way so that when sewn together, it appears to have dark and light diagonal strips from corner to corner.  I used 6 different colors in the blue family.  TFL

Mariners Mug

I did this as a Christmas present for my boyfriend's son who is a Mariners Fan.  I decided to do the old Mariners logo as Cody has this particular logo on several of his shirts and caps.  TFL

repurposed planters

I had two of these planters left over from my summer planting and decided to paint them and repurpose them into some cute little halloween gifts.  This is the result of the painting and vinyling them.  I am going to take some tootsie pops and turn them into bats and pumpkins which I will then arrange in the top of the planters.  I'll post pics of the gifts before I give them away.  tfl

Dance is life

This is going to be a Christmas present. I was designing some decals for some customers and my boyfriend's little cousin (jr high age) asked me how much I would charge her to make a sign in black and turquoise. I just smiled at her and told her, "Wait...Christmas is coming!" She specified the colors and the saying when she asked me what I would charge. I think she will really like it. TFL

Birth Announcement Sign

A friend of mine had her first baby in September. This is what I made to commemorate the birth of her first son. She just got back from California, so I can finally give it to her. Hopefully she will like it! Her son's nursery is done in little monkeys. TFL

122 New Designs Added

I have uploaded 122 new Christmas, Fall and Harvest designs to my blog stores. 94 new Christmas designs can be found in the Christmas store and 28 new fall and harvest designs have been added to the regular store site. Don't forget that you can purchase 20 SVG's in the "Bundle Deal" for only $30.00. This makes each svg in the bundle pack only $1.50 each, a .45 cent saving passed on to you the customer. Also, when you order the bundle deal, you may mix and match from both webstores. You do not have to purchase 20 from only the Christmas store or 20 from only the regular store. Thanks for looking! :) Happy Cutting!

She is their first baby and my aunt and uncles first grandchild, so I made them a special tile as well! :) Oh and had to personalize some cute little pink kicks! :) The birth tile in pink didn't photograph too well, but the tile has three beautiful colors of pink!

Anniversary and Christmas

Today I am sharing two items.  One was made for my friends who are celebrating 17 years of marriage today and the other will be a Christmas present for my boyfriend's Daughter.  I have lots of things to make for Christmas this year, so I thought I would get a head start on some of them, less to worry about later.
Dave & Patty have been married for 17 years and are a true inspiration to those who know them, so I wanted to give them a reminder of their special day 17 years ago.  I gave them the gift early this morning, and it was a very emotional gift for them.  They really liked it. :)

Tara's front room is decorated in Black/red/white Japanese accents, with the Kanji symbols for love, hope & peace as her centerpiece focal point.  I thought this picture would tie in beautifully and add a nice personalization to her already beautiful decorations.
Thanks for looking. :)

Pokemon Birthday Presents

My grandson called me on the phone a few days ago. His birthday is September 20th and so he had three requests from grandma...A new deck of Pokemon cards (bought), A pokemon t'shirt and some invitations...I knew I wouldn't have time to make 40 invitations and get them to him in time for him to give them out so we compromised. I bought his invitations with matching bags and had them shipped to him so they would be there in time and made the rest for him. He recently joined an official pokemon club that has tournaments, so this was what I came up with for him. The pikachu file is one of Mardenz and the other files came from Rachelle on the Sure Cuts Alot Forum. Thanks to both ladies for sharing thier files! TFL

HTV T-shirts

My boyfriend's grandson just celebrated his first birthday so I made him this t'shirt. When his grandpa saw it, he wanted one for him to wear as well. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of them both wearing thier t'shirts together, but Rick's t'shirt says "Grandpa" and "Ayden's fishing buddy" with the same stick figure only larger. TFL
