Snow Day Cards

I used paper from Our Daily Bread Designs and an embossing folder cross from Darice, colored with my Copic markers. The stamp on the inside is from Our Daily Bread Designs also.

Here is a sympathy card I made using Just Rite Vintage Labels Seven and colored with my Copic markers.

I've been playing around with embossing powder and used stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs to make this sweet card for my husband's cousin who is getting married this weekend. 

This is a card I made with a cuttlebug plate and embossing folder. I colored the pieces with my Cricut. My husband's niece is having a baby shower this weekend so we needed a totally adorable card- it's cuter in person.

And... Happy Spring!

My new Mac decals

 This morning was snowy and icy so we didn't have church. I spent the morning watching my current-favorite Disney movie, Moana, and playing with Cricut vinyl.

First I used clipart from Educlips to create a 5x5 schnauzer decal.

After YEARS of light-hearted arguing, my husband bought me an external hard drive for my computer while I was in NYC a couple of weeks ago. I insisted I didn't need one, but occasionally I do. My old Mac had an internal disc drive, but it didn't work. Now that I have a new Mac (yay Christmas!) this is perfect. So I went old-school and decorated it using my vinyl with some old CD logos.

Wedding Bouquets

These are not good pictures at all, but I made flowers for my sister's destination wedding in Orlando! 

 She needed her bouquet, plus 2 for bridesmaids, and then 3 boutonnieres for the guys. I used twine to lace up the stems and they turned out beautifully!

There were dusty-rose hydrangeas, pink peonies, eucalyptus, boxwood, tiny pink rosebuds, and a couple of white cabbage roses.

My beautiful sister getting ready to get married!

Bath Bombs

For Christmas, my older sister bought me the ingredients I needed to delve into the world of Bath Bombs.

It wasn't hard after I spent about 8 solid hours googling the best recipes and playing around with different ingredients. My favorite is the shea butter!

I only had a handful actually stick together as round balls. I also used a mini cupcake pan and a silicon heart mold.

Wood burning for Christmas

Here are a couple of wood-burned Christmas decorations I made over break. Work has been KILLING ME this year so I haven't crafted much lately!

Christmas Craft Show

My older sister has been bugging me for awhile to do another couple of craft shows with her for Christmas. Here are some pictures from the one at the local high school. 

These birdhouse ornaments are handmade by my sister- covered with diamond dust. Beautiful!

Here are some wood-burned tree limbs... inspiration from my Christmas trip to Germany last year.

This is my favorite! It didn't get sold so it's going on my door.
