Fun stuff to share

Hey there!  I hope everyone is getting excited about the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Just a couple more days!  We love turkey and pumpkin pie around here.  But we especially love to hang out and play cards and games and put up the Christmas decorations.  Looking forward to it. 

I'm always busy creating things.  ALWAYS.  My Hubby and Kids will tell you.  My kitchen table seems to never see the light of day.  HA!  I thought I would share some of the things I finished this week.  I've been creating Christmas card kits for my online friend Ginger for several years now and loving it.  This year's card was lots of fun!  I found some packages of some SUPER CUTE Christmas tags at Michael's and incorporated them in the card.  I can't wait to pick some "tags" up after Christmas on clearance so I can make some card sets next year!  They totally make the card! 

The next thing I finished, also a custom order for Ginger, was baptism invitations for her daughter who is turning 8 on December 17th.  She is being baptized on her 8th birthday just like my Bailee was!  How cool is that?  I used the new S5-068 Dress Forms die template by Spellbinders to create this beautiful baptism dress invite.  I'm super excited with how it turned out.  

The other thing I've been super busy getting caught up on is loading a lot of things into my ETSY Shop.  Fun things over there so ya better get them before they are gone!  Just sayin'! HA!  One thing I'm super excited about is my NEW wood Ampersands!  I ran across the idea on Pinterest and immediately thought of my cousin Brooke who is an amazing wedding photographer.  Click here to check out her photography site.  Anyhooooo...... I saw this photo and just KNEW she needed this prop for her business!  They are fun and can be used for a variety of things! 

 Okay...... I think that's it for now.... gonna start my preparations for Turkey Day.  And play with my girls who are home this week!  I hope everyone enjoys their time with family and friends!  Hugs!

Spellbinders Design Team Call

Before the deadline comes and goes...... I wanted to share with you this exciting information.  I've had an amazing experience so far on the Spellbinders Design Team and would encourage anyone who is interested to apply for the 2012 Team!  CLICK HERE for all the info.  This is truly one of the most amazing companies to work with.  I am going to give it another shot.  My current term doesn't end until April but I've had so much fun that I just don't want it to end!  Good luck to all who apply!

One of my very favorite things about Spellbinders Die Templates is how fun it is to use them for shapes and creations other than what they were originally intended!  When I received this Flower Pots set I was so excited to play and quickly realized that if I simply turned it upside down then it looked just like a pilgrim hat!  How fun is this?  Here is my pilgrim hat card in the Spellbinders Gallery. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends

Wise Men Still Seek Him

Lots going on over here as usual!  I'm crafting my fingers off trying to get ready for a Holiday Market that's taking place in Clinton, MS this Saturday.  Renee and I are setting up a booth to sell our fun creations in.  All kinds of stuff.  Whatever doesn't sell I will be adding to my ETSY shop next week.  But Here's a fun wall hanging I cut out of wood then painted.  I am sooooo in love with the Daisy Topper die templates from Spellbinders.  They make AWESOME Christmas poinsettias. And of course the Snowflake Pendant is way cool too!!!!  I've always loved this quote I used on here too! 
anyhooooo.... I'm still alive.  Just wanted to pop in real quick and let ya know what I'm up to!  Hope everyone is doing well!
