Last Post for the Year

Hi Crafty Buddies,
I thought my last post was my last one for this year but then we went out shopping at our local BJs Wholesale Club.  I just had to share what I found there to you all.  I found a really cute container for my ever growing Copics. Check it out

There is room to grow.  LOL!!  I bought a set of 3 of Rubbermaid containers for a good price and in a Cute color "Pink".  I have been searching on-line for a container that I can carry around but not too big.  I can use this to carry to crops, up and down the stairs to my craft closet. It's really portable which I LOVE!!  My goal for the new year is to use these markers more and create, create, create...

Ok, this is my last post for the year... 
See you all in the New Year. 

Hugs, Friday

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Hey Crafty Friends,

I wanted to wish you all a Very Happy New Year!  This time, I will be taking down our tree, putting xmas decorations away and then start painting our walls.  Fun huh?  I know... lol. 

Take care and be safe!

I will share more creations with you all next year.  See you then.

My New Camera!

Hey Bloggy friends, Santa was extremely nice to me this year.  He knew exactly want I really wanted.  I wanted other scrappy things but he knew what I truly needed.  I have used a point and click camera for too long and finally I have a SLR Camera to call my very own.  I used my point and click camera to take this picture for the last time. hehe!!  I hope Santa was extremely nice to you too. 

Ok, I better get back to my family.  Have a Great Day Everyone and a Blessed one too.

Bday Gift Card Holder

Hey Crafty Friends, here I go again.  I don't know why when I'm hooked on something I'm just a creating fool.  Here is another Kathy Orta's gift card holder I created for My hubby's Niece.  Her birthday is next week and we always give her a gift card to her favorite clothing store.  So, I had to make another one.   Her favorite color is blue and I really dug into my stash of many papers and this is all had to work with.  I have a ton of pink papers and hardly any blue.  I have a lot of vintage paper but that wouldn't go with this purpose.  Anyway, I changed it a little instead of punching out circles for the closure I use buttons and bling.  I really like this better because i don't have to fuss with and eyelet setter.  I hope you all like.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak.  Take Care!

Kathy Orta's Gift Card Holders

OK, I'm hooked on these things!!

Hello Crafty Friends,
I hope you are having a Fantastic Tuesday.  I'm so done with all the things I wanted to do.  Well... lol!!  I'm not so stressed now.  Anyway, I wanted to share some Gift Card Holders I have created for some friends of mine. Ever since I saw Kathy Orta (Paper Phenomenon) video I immediately went out and bought some 6x9 envelopes from Office Depot.  Thanks Kathy for the Awesome Idea.  The one on the far right is my prototype.  I had to make sure I can do it before making the real deal.  I hope you guys like...  I'm loving these and they are so simple to make.  You guys should try these. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Have a great day and come back soon.

Hugs, Friday

Kids Xmas Cards 2011

Hello Fellow Crafters!!
I wanted to share the Xmas cards my kids made yesterday.  They are simple but very cute.  Here are some pictures...

I used some old Xmas papers I had and cut them down to size.  Used some $1 foam stickers from Joanns.  Then added some glitter to with some glitter glue from Crayola.  They had a blast making them.  So, I will be sticking candy canes to each card from each classmate.  We do this every year and its like a tradition for us. hehe!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by... I'm off to wrap gifts, make some gift card holders and lastly I will be baking some Snow Ball cookies for my Son's Class.  They will be doing a cookie exchange this year.  There are not enough hours in a day to do everything I wanted to do.  We haven't decorated our gingerbread house and we still need to make Christmas cookies for Santa. Whew!  I'm tired already.  Plus, I need to mail more cards out to friends.  I'm so behind.  Oh well, I better get moving and get things done...

Have a Blessed Sunday...

Hugs, Friday

Baking Baking Baking!

Hey Bloggers! I know I haven't posted much lately.  I just don't have time to create anything good for you all.  I did want to share what my hubby has been up to.  Yes, you heard me "My Hubby" has been baking up a storm all day.  He makes these delish chocolate chip cookies and pudding cake for his friends for the holidays.  They do a cookie, fudge and everything in between swap with their closest friends.  He has done this for years even before we met.  So, here is picture of his creations:
Tomorrow, I will share my kids cards that they made for their friends this year.  Please come back to see.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season.  It gets busier every year for me.  I  wait for a little vacation we have planned. 

Have a Great Weekend.  Take care!

Giving Tree 2011

Hello Everyone!
I thought I would share this with all of you.  Every year my kids pick stars at our Church's Giving Tree and then we go out and buy gifts to those in Need.  I want to teach them that it's better to give then to receive.  Each child gets to pick a star off the "Giving Tree".  So, Here is a picture of the gifts:

I hope everyone is having a Great Tuesday.  Are you finish shopping, I'm NOT!!!  But, I'm SO glad I got to do this with my kids.

Take Care and Hugs,

My New Advent Calendar for 2011

Hi everyone, How was your weekend?  We had a great weekend.  We got out Christmas tree, decorated the house (inside and out), had Breakfast with Santa and put up the Christmas Train.  I wanted to share my new Advent calendar with you all.  I had a different one but it was just hard to keep out and this year (I got this idea from a friend) I made my own with Muslin Bags I bought from Etsy.  Here is a pics:

I put some Hersheys candy cane kisses in them for the kids.  They just loved them.  I stamped my images with Stazon Timber Black.  I also stamped the numbers with a set I got from Target that I just love.  Added some bells and Viola "Our New Advent Calendar".  We are on day 5 ...

Thanks everyone for stopping by and taking a peak.

Have a Great Monday and Week.

Hugs, Friday

Altered Cigar Box - What I've done so far...

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share the Beginnings of my Altered Cigar Box that I'm altering for a swap.  I have been so busy lately that I didn't have time to do this earlier but today I got inspired to do it and I'm not finished yet.   This is an one-on-one swap with a friend.  Here is a pic:
I will go into more detail on products when I'm finished.  I'm also making some other altered items to put in it for my partner.  I will post a video upon completion and it's mailed out.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and taking a peak. 

Hugs, Friday
