Snowman Muffin Tin

I love the beautiful red background and snowmen that are hand painted onto an old muffin tin, they are gorgeous!  But, I love vinyl and I wanted my snowmen to have a blue background to get a colder feel...snowmen and blue represent cold to me lol.   Thank God for the dollar store!  I painted the blue and white and then sprayed it all with a varnish so it will hold up, if I choose to hang it outside, then added the vinyl faces, lettering and snowflakes.  This is my version of the muffin tin snowman with vinyled instead of hand painted faces.

Dragonfly Zipper Pull

I found a really cool little beaded dragonfly on pinterest.  I have tons of beads so after seeing it I drug out all of my beads to see if I had what I needed to make it.  Now the one I saw on pinterest had the bead hole of the wings on the end of the bead.  I didn't have any of those.  The only wing type beads I had went from end to end, so I improvised by using a small bead at the end of the wing to be able to thread it back through the wing and on to the next wing.  I think it turned out ok for not seeing any directions and just doing my own thing lol.

HTV Onsies

A good friend from highschool and I have kept in touch since graduating, 34 years later, her Son and his wife are having their very first baby (her second grandchild).  The shower is coming up soon and so I thought I would make some onsies with HTV.  I can't wait to give them to the happy couple!   I would have loved to have been able to make them more specific, but since this is the first baby for this couple, they want to be suprised with the sex so we don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet...we'll find out soon though, she is due in November. I think my favorite is the "Potty like a rockstar" shirt.  TFL

Happy Hallo-Scream

This is probably one of my favorite new files in the Halloween section.  I saw a sign in a store that just simply said, "Happy Hallo-Scream" and I thought cute, but so plain!  Immediately my brain was reeling with the possibilities of what I could do, so I went home and set to work!  This is the results.  It's a devilish little
child trapped in the crystal ball of an evil, wicked witch.  I love how it turned out!  TFL
