Christmas Cards!

Usually I can get my Christmas cards out the weekend of Thanksgiving, but this year has been so bogged down with 'everything' else, that I just finished them and still need to send them out. :( But my goals was to get them out, and they will get out!!! I used transparent paper to make the card itself and then cut about a million triangles to make trees. I then chalked all of the edges of the trees and the snow to make them pop. So they came out as 5 different cards with the same design!

So Merry Christmas Everyone!!!! And Happy Holidays! Stay Safe!!

A few Christmas Kits

Both of these I got from Micheal's...I LOVE that store. The first one is a Train that will hold Candy Canes. It came with tires that you add to the bottom, but I could not figure out how to add them and still get the same height from all three. So I left them off, and it is still cute! The second kit is one that I bought last year for my husband to put together, and he never got to it. So I was up a couple of nights ago, and put it together! Insomnia will do some crazy things, I am just lucky that the mooses head is on straight. :)

I have been busy!

Okay, I have not posted my stuff in awhile, but I have been busy!! :)

This is an altered item that I did for a swap in a myspace group. I bought this small dresser at Micheal's and painted it red. I then taped off the edges and painted on the cloth draper. The tree's, santa, and the snowman are cut from paper and glued on the front drawers.

I love the outcome and almost kept it and made her something different, but I can always make another one. :) So this one is in the mail, and a newly bought one is ready to start!!
