A Quickie!

Happy Tuesday!!!

  It's about 12:24 am here in Sunny California. I do mean sunny!!! Yesterday temperatures reached a high of 80 degrees!!! Geees!! I thought it was December. The weather people are predicting showers this upcoming Friday till Tuesday. I'm crossing my fingers, I want it to feel like winter!!

Well enough rambling, onto my card. This card I made really qiuck and to be honest I'm not thrilled with it at all. I couldn't figure out how to piece it together. The cricut cut was already done and glitterfied. It was the picking of cardstock and pattern paper to create the card base. Oh well, this is what I came up with. If you do have any ideas on what you would do different please share. I'd appreciate it!!! Have a jolly Tueasday!!!


I used raffia and buttons to add some embellishments.

This was originally going to be an ornament
but I cut it out way to big and
decided I would add it to a card later.


Toodles!!!

Holiday Greetings

Hello Friends!

    I am in a crafting Frenzy!! I started to make a Xmas card after my ornaments. I am loving this card so much. I used paper from Joann's dollar section. It came with 6 sheets of patterned paper. I also used Kraft cardstock for the base of my card. The Mickey is from the Mickey and Friends Cart, icon feat. The hat came from PDDU. What do you think? I have about 4 more xmas cards to finish up and I will be sending them on there way hopefully on Tuesday. Once I'm done I'll post them up to see what you think. Have an awesome night!!



I used the swirls cuttlebug folder.

Stamp from Stampin' Up collection.

Christmas Crafting

Hi Bloggies!

Yay, it's Friday. I'm so happy for that. (well probably now Saturday as soon as I post this) lol. It was a rough work week. Hope everyone will have an awesome weekend. I will finish Xmas decorating and hopefully get some shopping done. How is everyone doing with that? Any procrastinators like me? :)

So today I went to my friend's house to do some holiday crafting with her 3 daughters. We had a blast. We decorated and painted wood ornaments from Joanns. They were only .39 and the acrylic paint was on sale for .59 each! What a bargain!

I painted the snowman ornament and the girls painted the other ones. These lil ones' are 6 and under. I think they came out great . I only helped with the glitter. The girls did everything else on their own. This is such an easy project to do with the kids. The girls enjoyed it very much!

Give this a try with your kids, nephews, nieces, neighbors, anyone! Let me know how fun it was. Enjoy!

Stationary for Claudia

HI Bloggies!

      Whew I feel like I haven't been here in forever. I do check you blogs regularly and try to leave as many comments as I can while I am there. But, keeping my blog up has not been on my to do list. I have had a lot going on.

      Here is a project I made for a dear friend of mine that was going to be leaving our school on Nov. 29th. Her name is Claudia and she works in the office. Claudia is a bundle of joy, she is always smiling, she's a great friend and I will miss seeing her when I go to work. She was always the first smile I saw when would walk ino campus and because the district works in the most wierd ways, she has been transfered to another school. BOO ;( So I wanted to gift Claudia something that she will be able to use at her new school, and something that when she looks at it, it will remind her of me! :)

      I will miss my friend dearly and I know everyone at school will to. She will always be a "Sendakian" (We call ourselves this at the school we work at) Maurice Sendak Elementary. I will still see her shining smile on FB and we will continue to keep in touch. This one is for you CLAUDIA!!!!! Thanks for everything.

    I hope you guys enjoy this one!


A note book and post-it note holder.

I used Glossy Accents on the letter.

Here's a close up. I love it!
