Thank Yous

This year's Chrismas thank yous... I used my go-to stamp set (actually given to me by the boyfriend two Christmases ago), Season of Friendship by Stampin' Up! and a thank you stamp from another stamp set. Easy as pie! Happy New Year's and happy crafting!

So somehow I was able to finish all my scarves in time for Christmas... Below is a picture of the final scarf worn by my fabulous cousin, Jaimee. Doesn't she look all cozy and warm? I hope you all had a very merry Christmas! Happy crafting!

Merry Christmas

Last on my Christmas Card Countdown is this year's creation... I used my Big On Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up! to stamp the center, then used several layers of paper to make it nice and cozy. And the final touch, a brown ribbon to tie it all together ! Ha! A Pun! 5 more days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Christmas VII

This Christmas card is more accurately one of my favorites and was also made with my Crab & Company stamp set from Stampin' Up! And I probably love the phrase "jingle shells" even more than "sandy claws"! 7 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Continuing on my Christmas Countdown is one of my favorite cards... This one was made with my Crab & Company stamp set from Stampin' Up! I just love the phrase "sandy claws"!!! 9 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Christmas V

A much simpler version of this year's Christmas card, this one was made using my Big on Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up! It's difficult to tell from the picture, but the tree is actually raised above the rest of the letters. 11 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Christmas IV

This Christmas card was made using my Big on Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up! It's super simple so if I were to make this card again, I'd give it a nice big bow down on the bottom... If fact, I think that's what I attempted to do when I originally made them, but couldn't make the bows work to mail and gave up. 13 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Christmas III

Now this was last year's Christmas card, still made using the same Cricut cartridge and Stampin' Up! stamp sets. I actually cheated a little by cutting out the 5 trees, gluing them down, then scanning them into the computer and using that image for the rest of my 30+ Christmas cards. All in all, I was pleased with how they turned out. 15 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Christmas II

For this Christmas card I used the same It's a Stretch Cricut cartridge, as well as the same christmas stamp from Stampin' Up! But this time I added some polka dotted circles from my Think Happy Thoughts stamp set from Stampin' Up! I love how rustic this one turned out. 17 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Starting off the Christmas Countdown is this very simple card. I used my It's a Stretch Cricut Cartridge to cut out the tree, then used a christmas stamp from one of my Stampin' Up! stamp sets. 19 days til Christmas... Happy crafting!

Thanksgiving Decor

So the boyfriend and I had a couple friends over for a Vegetarian Thanksgiving... it tasted so much better than it sounds! We had the most amazing French Onion Soup I have ever tasted, compliments of Linda. We also had Tofurkey, mashed potatoes, green beans with fried onions and mushrooms, and sweet potatoes with cranberries and pecans. Of course, we had apple pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Below are the pictures of the table decor I put together at the last minute... literally. I went to set the table, it looked bare, so threw some things together. I found a bag of beans in the cabinet, put them in small juice glasses, then added tealight candles. Centerpiece, done. I then went in the backyard (with a flashlight looking totally rediculous) to find some leaves, wrote our names on the back, and tied with cooking string. Place Cards, done. And finally, I felt the wine glasses just needed a little extra touch, so I tied that same cooking string into little bows on the stem. Girly Bows, done. I was really quite proud. Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! Happy crafting!
