Christmas Organizers

This is the project that has been keeping me busy and away from my computer for the past few days. It shouldn't have taken so long to finish these, but with a sick little girl who didn't want to leave my lap, things didn't go as quickly. They are finally done and will be in the mail within the next day or two. Who are they for you ask? My wonderful sis-in-laws! I hope they like them and use them and haven't already made them for themselves! I saw this cute idea on splitcoast and just had to c.a.s.e. it.

supplies: SU Sleigh Full of Toys, Perfect Presentation, Snow FLurries, In the loop Alphabet, Old Olive, Bliss Blue, Real Red, Certainly Celery Ink and Paper, SU Scallop Punch, circle and oval punches, Lizzie Anne Holiday Cheer Stamp, Scrapworks patterned paper, misc embellishments and ribbon

Supplis: SU Simply Scrappin kit, Cameo coral ink and paper, misc buttons and ribbons, dollar store frame

Mr. Brown

I had a lot of things on my to-do list yesterday, and while I got a lot done, it wasn't all that was on my list. Mr Brown brought me a box at 10am, a lot earlier than I expected. So all housework was forgotten and the stamps came out to play. I just love Batty for You and the scallop circle punch from Stampin Up. Here is one of the projects I did yesterday, I saw it on somewhere, but I don't remember where. I need to start remembering where I see cute projects so I can give credit where due! The picture doesn't do it justice, but I just couldn't get a good shot, maybe I'll try again later in the day. I finished a couple other projects too, but those are gifts so I need to get them in the mail before I post them. Have I mentioned that I love Halloween????
Supplies: All Stampin Up unless noted. scallop circle punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, lovely lilac, wild wasabi, basic black, white, ink and papers, black gingham ribbon.

Finally finished

I've been working on this bat table runner for a few weeks now, ok maybe over a month, and I love it now that is is done. I see something I want to sew and always think it will be a super quick project, but it hardly ever is! I have another one of these to make, for my mom. We both love Halloween and I have a new table that it will look great on - I hope she has a place for it too!

In the beginning....

So I decided it was time to start my own blog to share the fun projects i've been working on. This is the project that my club did last week. I saw the idea on Kristen Werner's blog (when i figure out how to add a link, i will do that), I tweaked it a bit and we made a holiday gift planner. It was lots of fun. I love it when something I try to "copy" turns out great!
