More Christmas Cards...

Tis the season.... for Christmas Cards!!! Most of these cards was made using the Design Studio Software. Once again and always, thank you to those CricutMB members that share their beautiful cut files.... you guys really enable me!!! The card with the cross was made from a cut file from Susan Blue Robot. Making these cards was very therapeutic. I thought I was in love with "stamping" until I found out about "embossing." Thanks for looking!!!

Birthday Favor Bag

I'm currently battling a stomach ache, but through my pain I've found time to put together a favor bag for my daughter's Birthday. I will fill this bag with lip glosses, lotions and of course.....Hannah Montana's candy. She will love it! I already made the Milk Carton and Carrier for her. If you ever feel as if your craft projects are not appreciated..... make something for a child! Just seeing how she lights up make my day and make me create MORE.....

Flower Soft

Today I received my Flower Soft DVD in the mail. I wanted to get some ideas on how to use this item before I purchased it. The DVD helped me make a decisons as to what colors I needed to start. I ordered Heather, lime green, white and baby blue. They suggest a PVC glue but I noticed Aleene's Tacky glue being used with it on a website....who doesn't have Aleene's tacky glue somewhere in their house??? The flower wires look like standard flower wires with the white paper coating. I should receive my package next week and as soon as possible I will post a picture of my creation.

Crafters' Block?????

Everyone has heard of writer's block, but is there such a thing as crafters' block??? If there is.....I have it and I hope that it leaves as fast as it came. There are dozens of projects that I want to create. I can't seem to make myself attempt to create them. Maybe a good night's rest will cure this.

Eight Days After Election Day.........

and the historic election is still a hot topic everywhere. People are saving and preserving everything with President Elect B. Obama's picute on it. This morning CNN played back important parts of all the the debates. I believe that Obama will be a great Pesident of the United States. He has a beautiful family.

Milk Carton & Carrier

This gift set was made from a cut file created by Jen C. from the Cricut Messageboard. Jen makes beautiful, easy to use cut files. She is an asset to the MB and I'm very thankful for her generosity. I made this set as a gift for my DD birthday. I plan to fill the milk carton with candy.

Last Year's Christmas Gifts

Last year I made a bunch of acrylic picture frame calendars to give as gifts. I even made one for me! As I completed them I displayed all of them on my (hardly ever used) dining room table for a picture.
