MERRY CHRISTMAS! Blessings to you and your families for the coming year!

Sunday, December 22, 2013

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!  I found this wooden cross at Wal-Mart. Spray painted it to match my bedroom. Then took all those buttons I never use and started layering with a hot glue gun! Added the die cut Parisian Lamp Post, Poodle and Loretta die from Frantic Stamper and Voila another fun creation! Always remember that we are all unique and so are our creations! That's what makes it fun!!

Hi everyone! It has been so busy, guess it's just that time of the year for all of us. Today's posting is a Shadow Box that I made for my daughter's best friend Amy who moved away this last summer. My daughter wanted to send her away with some special memories. It is always fun to create and journal special memories. Give it a try! Blessings to you all and a very Merry Christmas!

Good Morning everyone! We are still trying to "thaw out"! Sunday it was "2" degrees, Monday it was "4" and today it was double digits "10"! We are having a tropical heat wave! Wanted to share this Nativity card with you today! Blessings to all and Happy Crafting!

It is snowing and icy in Southern Oregon today, so thought I would share some cards I made using pictures of flowers in our yard during the spring. These peonies were absolutely gorgeous! I love taking scenery shots and then using them as a card base, makes the card more personable. Hope all of you out in cyber-space are having a great weekend and staying warm!

I would say this card is appropriate for today! Woke up to 16 degree temperature and the possibility of snow on the valley floor tomorrow! AAARRRGGGHHHH! It's winter in Southern Oregon. I know all of you must be very busy with Christmas and all the preparations. Please have a blessed holiday season!

Good Morning everyone! Hopefully you all survived the Thanksgiving weekend and that your family and friends who were traveling arrived home safely! Time for the "sprint" to Christmas. Blessings to you all and have a great upcoming week.

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and traveling mercies as you journey out into the inclement weather. Hope you enjoy your "Turkey Day", probably more than the turkey will!

Happy pre-Thanksgiving everyone! Hopefully we will all survive Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Thought I would share one of my Faith Journals and matching Birdhouses with you all today. Spend some time crafting and relaxing!

Good Morning everyone! Very cold today and possible snow in the higher elevations. A good day for some crafting and staying inside. Hope everyone had a great weekend. We celebrated our grand-daughter's 15th birthday yesterday. Time flies doesn't it? Today I'm sharing another page in the Christmas Journal. Hope you are enjoying seeing the fun things you can do with paper and embellishments. Happy Crafting!

Okay ladies, another peek at the Christmas Journal! Lots of places to make notes and document special times. It's very cold in Southern Oregon, so a good day to work on craft projects. I've been trying to spray paint an item and it has taken a couple days because of the cold! Brrrrrrr......

Good Morning everyone! Here is another little sneak peek of the Christmas Journal. If you have never tried making a journal, they are really a lot of fun. My husband and I do bible readings every morning and we journal all year long our "thoughts and prayers", so what better way to do that than in a personally made journal. Give it a try you won't be sorry! Blessings to all of you today, stay warm.

Happy Friday everyone! It is time to start getting the Christmas projects, on your calendar, done! The operative word is "done"! I tackled my Christmas Card List this week and got them finished, yeah!
This is a cute Christmas journal book that would make an awesome gift for family or friends. If you don't want to do it from scratch, then grab a kit. There are many out there and they come together quickly. Have fun! As always my motto is "more is better"! :0)   I love bling!

Good Morning fellow crafters! It is a cold, foggy morning here in Southern Oregon. I love the changing of the season's, wouldn't want to live where that didn't happen! Besides if it is inclement weather we can go into our scrap book area and start creating something Spring Time! This shadow box was made for a dear friend and features Psalm 130:5. May you all have a joyous day regardless of the weather!

I have a dear friend who is struggling with severe health issues. This card is a message to her that she is blessed and loved by one and all! God loves us more that we could ever love each other, so I know that she is in the best of hands. Good Morning to everyone and please keep her in your prayers today!

Today I wanted to share a special moment in my grandson's life! Those of us who have grand-children know the joy when they accomplish a hard fought battle. On this day my grandson Tyler earned his Black Belt in Chun Kuk Do from Chip Wright's Karate. We are so proud of his dedication in pursuing this honor!

  • One of my passions these days is to take boxes of any kind and alter them to a Vintage Look! Give it a try, it's lots of fun. Use all kinds of products, old jewelry, metals, etc. This box entitled "Friends are the flowers in life's garden" uses many of Frantic Stamper dies. Give them a try, they cut like "butter" and have exquisite detail!
  • Frantic Stamper Dress Form
  • Frantic Stamper Hummingbird
  • Frantic Stamper Flower Scroll

Crisp Fall Days!

Good Morning! It is raining in Southern Oregon, but it is a nice change. Where I live we have all the seasons. My favorite is Fall, I love the colors and the brisk morning air. Praying for a blessed day for all of you. Please stop by again and I promise I will get the hang of this new site! :o)
