Holiday Papercraft Creations

 I made these Rudolph repair kits for a few friends this year with Red Hots candy-yummy and fun! I also did a more traditional card with some memory box dies with the holiday window and snow flakes on the bottom.

Feathers for a Friend

 Here's a quick birthday card I made for a friend of mine.

December Jewelry Creations Part 2

 I told you all I have been loving beading this month!!! Here's a few more designs.

December Jewelry Creations

 I have been really inspired this month with my jewelry making. I found these two awesome butterfly wing pendants and just had to create something with them. Here's what I came up with. The red necklace is much prettier and brighter in person. I think the holiday season in general inspired that one!

My Steampunk Angel

 I have had this pendant for quite a while, but had not created anything with it until today. I really like this piece and think it's very different for the artsy jewelry lover.

My Halloween 2013 Party!!!

 I had a little Halloween get together this year so here are a few pics of my favorite yummy treats I fixed. The first is of some coffin and tombstone brownies. The next one is individual skull cakes that I added gel icing eyes first them candy eyes on top. I also made some yummy cupcakes with skeleton hands and witch feet sticking up out of them, but I do need to learn not to take pictures in the dark. The picture quality of these are pretty bad, but it was fun. I tried my hand at chocolate mummy suckers, broom pretzels, and pumpkin suckers this year. I really enjoyed those-quick and easy to make-just my style! The next picture is of a witch I found at the store who really wanted to come to a nice little Halloween party so I took her home with me. The last picture is of some of the glasses I bought that my guests could choose from for a group photo at the end of the evening.

My Halloween Display Shelf

I really enjoyed making this little Halloween altered art creation. The shelf itself is by Tim Holtz.

Shark Week Drink

 I love watching all of the Shark Week shows on the Discovery Channel this time of year, so I thought this would be the perfect time to show you the drink my friend had at lunch the other day at Joe's Crab Shak. I just love the blue ocean water in the glass, then pour in a tube of red like blood in the water! Actually I admire sharks and do not think they are just out to get us at all, but it's still an awesome drink!

How many days until Halloween???

 I love making Halloween cards. Here's another Impression Obsession background stamp used to make a quick and easy background. I don't know what I'm going to add to it yet, but I'm in a Halloween kind of mood for sure!

Halloween Background Card

 I have been playing around with the Impression Obsession Cover a Car backgrounds today and here's what I came up with.

Up Up and Away Card

 Just a little card I was working on today.

Delicate Flower Earrings

 I have been making these little flower earrings all day. The only problem is I no longer want to have others buy them I want to keep them all for myself! haha

I'm in love with Simon Says Stamp....

 Here's my latest order from Simon Says Stamp Company. It's a great company based in Ohio. I love their selection of everything and I love their specialty line too! SSS has really fast shipping which is great for me because anytime I order from somewhere I wait on pins and needles until it arrives. I have also recently fallen in love with these NEON inks and daubers by Hero Arts. It takes me back to my 80's childhood and dressing like Cyndi Lauper. I love these inks so much I wish I had ordered the full size stamp pad in them, but these cubes should last for a bit. I have been playing around with the Hero Arts set called Brushstroke and adore it combined with the neon inks! Well, several birthdays have manages to sneak up on my so I am off to make come cards!
