Altered Coffin Box

   Hello Everyone, Happy Friday!!  I thought I would share another project with you all since I have already mailed to my partner for a swap I'm in.  I had joined a Halloween TP Mini Album swap over at  It is Hosted by Yvonne also known as Scrapbliss.   I know you don't see the mini and only this coffin.  It's because I didn't take any pictures of it. LOL!!  I will upload the video on it soon to show you the mini.  So, stay tuned.

    I used a coffin box from Michaels.  I painted it with the Folk Art Metallic Sequin Black inside and out.  I added some black lace from my stash and purple velvet ribbon from Joanns.  I then added some cross bones stickers to the seam.  On top of the box, I popped dotted a journal tag (that looks like a frame) from Recollections, added a big sparkly spider and another cross bones I got at Target.  That's it. I hope my partner likes this box and the mini I made for her.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.  Have a Great day!!

Take care, Friday

Phone or Camera... hmmm...

     Hello Everyone, this post has nothing to do with crafting.  I'm sorry.  I had to share my new toy with you all.  I'm so new to all the new cell phones out there it's not even funny.  We just weren't ready until now.  Well, we didn't really have a choice when my cell phone just stopped working all together.  I couldn't even charge it up to turn on.  So, we had to look for a phone for me asap.  I'm happy to say I'm a proud owner of a Droid Incredible 2 from Verizon.  It's a sorta recent phone but you know technology it will always be obsolete.  I'm perfectly ok with a phone on the 3G network verses the 4G network.  If you are a veteran of cell phones you will know what I mean.  I'm still learning about this phone.  I just learned how to text quickly on my other phone and I know I have to start all over.  Here is a pic:

I bet you are all wondering why I have in the title "Phone or Camera".  Well, my birthday is this month and my hubby was planning on getting me an DSLR camera for my birthday.  I was so excited.  I have struggled with my current camera for 3 years now and I'm fed up with point and shoot cameras.  My kids are getting bigger and I need a better camera to capture every moment but now that I got a smartphone, my camera will be a gift some other time. boo hoo!!  Oh well, I need a cell phone anyway especially for emergencies. 

I hope to share some projects I have been working on with you all real soon.  Have a great Wednesday!

Hugs, Friday

Dino Birthday Invites!

Hey Everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  It's been busy for me.  I'm getting ready for my son's 4th birthday Party coming up really soon.  I had to get the invites finish to be mailed to family and friends.  Also for his close classmates from school.  Birthdays are always so stressful for me.  This year the theme is Dinosaurs.  He loves them from watching Dino Dan on Nick Jr.  Here is my card:

It's just a simple invites.  It sure would of been a lot cheaper if I had the cricut but my son actually found these dimensional stickers at our local AcMoore store when they were on sale.  I had to buy several of them for his invites.  I hand cut the sentiment to look like torn wood.  I think I got it right. LOL!!

What little boy doesn't love dinosaurs, Right?  He gave me a thumbs up on my card... He is so cute. 

Thanks for stopping by... I will have more to share real soon.

Have a great Sunday!  Take care.

Hugs, Friday
