Today's Project

I painted the dining room over a year ago when we first got this house.  I have Not been happy with the color.  So yesterday I bought some new paint and today I painted.
So far I am liking it.

Halloween Treat Boxes

I decided to make Halloween treat boxes for my co workers. So after 2 days of gluing my fingers together I think I am done.  I used Happy Haunting for the boxes.  For the embellishments I used Happy Haunting, CTMH Artiste, PPDU, October 31, Mini Monsters, Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake, Story Book, George and Doodle Charms.

Quick and Simple Banner

Short notice for her return but I wanted to have something to greet her so I made this for a co-worker.

Made using Birthday Bash for the entire thing.  Pennants cut at 5" I think.  Used 3 sheets of paper for the black and 2 + 1 pennant of the pattern paper.  Letters are cut at 2" on 1 - 8.5x11 sheet of paper

Bona inspired mini.

A friend showed me a link to some super cute and quick minis by Bona.

Here is her link.

Mine was made for my hair stylist who decided to get married while she was in Maui.

To bind mine I used my sewing machine  and sewed right down the middle . Paper was from several different collections.  DCWV, Echo Park, Coredinations.

The mini I made for Julie

I got this idea from Heidi Swapp and thought it was cute so I made it for Julie's bday present.

Started with a little white jewelry box from the craft store.  Tossed all my boxes when we moved or I'm sure I could have found one in the attic. 

Late post -

So here is Julie's birthday card.  Her birthday was April 15th.  Just a little late posting

Baby Name/shape book

My Cousin and his wife had a baby boy Feb 28.  Finally getting this done.

A couple cards.

Cricut Wild Card cartridge to the rescue.  Needed a graduation card.  Simple with WC.  Used DCWV Chalk board paper for the envelope.

Second card is of course a birthday card for one of my old daycare girls.  She is now six.
Used Birthday Bash for this one.

Shoe Bags to the rescue

So last november we moved.  I have a new craft space, bigger I think but I have extra furniture in it and it is just different.  I have been struggling to find storage for my ribbon.  I used gutters at our old house but I don't have room for them here so.......I had an idea and I think I like it.  My ribbon is visible and I even have expansion room.

And in my pantry I use one to store my muffin mixes and snack bars.
