The photo above shows the Sewing Chair that I altered for my daughter (who loves to sew) as a Christmas gift. I didn't post this before Christmas because I know she checks my blog, so I waited until after Christmas. She was thrilled to have a place she can store and organize her sewing items!

Anyway, you can get more photo shots at details if you head on over to the Fiskars Crafts website. I've attached a link below to make it easy for you to get there!

New projects

Well, I've not only been busy with Christmas, but I've been working on a couple projects for Fiskars as well. You will see them pictured at the links below to where you can also purchase the supplies to make them yourself!

This will most likely be my last post until after Christmas so to all of my loyal blog followers and those of you who pop in now and then too......Happiest of Holidays to you!

Cocktail party!

For those of you who remember a post a few weeks ago about the cocktail party invitation I was looking for feedback for, well the party was last night. If you recall I used the Heidi Grace Jolly and Bright collection to create the invitations. To extend that theme I also used the HG Jolly and Bright collection to create the table tents labeling the food, and the fork holder is decorated with embellishments from the line as well. So anyway, I thought I would share some pictures of the table. I managed to snap this just a few minutes before the guests began arriving.

Anyway, leave a comment and let me know how you incorporate paper crafting into your holiday festivities! I'd love to hear your ideas and what you do. And if you have pictures include a link so I can see what you create too!

Remember when I posted about the website? Then I did a book and shared it on my blog? Well, like I said I was going to do a calendar as well and let me tell you.....I received it today and it is totally awesome. I've given you a sampling of pictures of the front and a couple inside pages. I think these make terrific gifts! Just think you make it once and then order a copy for everyone on your list. It is personalized with photo memories from the previous year and perfect for anyone on your list. What a great teacher gift, huh?
Anyway, if anyone has any questions just let me know! It was fun and easy to do and the finished project is very professional!

Christmas is coming....

Ok, here is a project I want to share with you today! How many of you paper craft your own holiday table? Well each year I add some cute paper crafting to mine! The sky is the limit and I've altered little gifts, candy, place cards, napkin rings, cup decor, etc.

I'd love to see what you come up with for your own holiday table. Create a sample and then post a link here so I can see what you created. I love it when people share what they are doing with me so I can be inspired.

Bear with me...

Good morning bloggers! Just a quick note asking you to bear with me for a few days. My husband just set me up with a brand new state of the art computer which is going to take me a few days to get used to. I have to test my devices and work out some bugs. Then I'll be back with some holiday projects to share with you.......hopefully by Tuesday if not before!

Christmas class!

I just wanted to post another reminder about the Christmas Explosion box class I am offering! This is a great way to make a cherished keepsake while also having a gift wrapped box to hold a small gift or pockets to hold a gift card. There are 8 flaps that open up inside that are embellished with all kinds of fun things!

Get your kit and be invited to the class today! The instructions are a download so you work at your own pace.

Post below if you have any questions!

I'm So Proud...

I am really proud of one of my best friends! Jan and I have been friends for 28 years now and have been through so much together. During those 28 years Jan was a legal secretary. Anyway, about a year ago she gave it all up for her dream! I am proud to say that she is doing extremely well after plugging away and building her own business for almost a year and has helped so many people! Check out her website...

Jan, you are such an inspiration to me!

Roll Baby Roll!

A layout that I created using the Heidi Grace Reagan's closet line! This was totally a fluke photo shoot! My daugter was propped up on her elbow's and next thing you know she rolled for the very first time. I was so lucky to have been holding the camera to catch this and what a fluke it was!
