Big Weekend

August 11, 2008 - 10:53am

We have officially decided to put our house on the market and see what happens. :) This means I am not going to be updating this very often since I have already packed all of my craft supplies! I have a couple cards to show you and I am going to a friend's house to make cards on Saturday, so I will have some to share after that...but I won't be making much of anything new in the line of crafting.

If you want to know more about it, you can feel free to visit my other blog since I will be updating that more.

I hope everyone keeps in touch...I'll need something to pass the time when I can't touch anything in my house! :)

Heart Flowers

August 7, 2008 - 6:00am

I made this as an Anniversary card for my Mother-in-law and her hubby. Like us, they got married on her birthday. So she gets double the celebration. I think it turned out nicely. I like the way the three ribbons look. I will definitely do that again! I used sparkly silver paper in the card I am very pleased with they way it gives the card a little more dimension. And we all know how much I like sparkle! Enjoy!

Green Pen

August 4, 2008 - 6:00am

This is a pen I made for my brother's girlfriend. She picked out the wood for the pen and then watched me turn it so it would be the thickness she wanted. She picked a great green. Sometimes colored wood doesn't always turn out the way you expect. At least not the way I expect it to look! I think it turned out lovely and I know my brother's girlfriend loved it! Enjoy!

Be proud! I made a card! It's been quite some time. I have a couple more things I need to make cards for so you might be seeing a couple more...shocking, I know!

This is a baby card I made for someone at work. We had a baby shower for her at work and I wanted to make a card to go with all the cute stuff my friend and I bought for her. I like how the three ribbons with different colors mixed in look. And I love how tiny the sentiment is. It just offsets everything else. Enjoy!

Chuck's Pen

July 28, 2008 - 6:00am

This is the pen I promised to show you that I made for my hubby. He picked out the style pen he wanted and I picked out the wood (which is the same as the key ring I posted recently). It is a rollerball pen which writes really well and it's much heavier than I thought it would be. You take the cap off this one and it can be put on the top. This is different than the other pens I have done which are twist pens. I think it turned out great, and most importantly, so does Chuck!

Buckeye Burl Key Ring

July 24, 2008 - 6:00am

This is a key ring I made out of Buckeye Burl wood. This one I gave to my brother for his birthday. I thought it turned out perfectly to give to a guy. This is the same wood I used on a pen I made for Chuck. After looking through my site, I realize that I haven't shared a picture of that yet. So I will do that soon. Enjoy!

Thanks From A Friend

July 22, 2008 - 8:31pm

This is a very simple and gorgeous card I got from my friend Katie after her birthday. (She's the one that got all the purple stuff.) I was cleaning off my desk and had forgotten I needed to take a picture of this beauty to share. Enjoy!

Stripe Key Ring

July 17, 2008 - 12:27pm

This is a key chain that I made for my step mom's birthday. She loved it! It was a little hard giving it away because I liked it so much, but since I made it, I figured I could always make another one! :) Enjoy!

Superbella!

July 15, 2008 - 1:37pm

Here's a little bella card I made. This is the first time I had used this image, but thought I would give it a try. I used a bunch of Crystal Effects on this card, too. It's on all the dots again (because I loved how it looked) and on her top, skirt and cape so they look kind of like shiny super hero material! Then I added gold glitter to her boots and some gold ribbon. I also added a few black eyelets for a little something more. I think it turned out really cute!

I also have to tell you that I haven't made anything crafty in quite some time. I just haven't felt up for it. I know that is shocking, but now that I have a job, there are other things I want to do when I get home. I craft when I need to make something not because I don't have anything else to do. So my priorities are different now. Therefore, the entries here will probably be a bit inconsistent. But I will continue to post things as I make them and I am sure I will have days where I just can't stop making stuff! So for now, check back or add me to a list that tells you when I post something. Have a great day!

Another Graduation Card

July 11, 2008 - 8:36am

This is another graduation card I made recently. I made one with the same colors for the other one which was for my cousin. This one was for a neighbor and no, they don't go to the same school. :) I also tried to make this one a little more fitting for a guy (since our neighbor is a guy). This means I did without glitter and ribbon! I did add some eyelets and mounted the hats on dimensional tape. I think it turned out quite well! Enjoy!
