Very special special of $199 on Nov. 29th for only 20 hours.

Thanksgiving time....

I found a great blog called justanotherhangup. Suzanne has some great ideas and if you ask nicely she will send you free subway art printout. 

This is the Thanksgiving one I have done so far. I just asked for her December one and will be putting that together..
I went to Joann's and found the 7x7 precut wood plaque and then painted it orange. When I printed out the art onto cream cardstock, I took ink and distressed the paper. The pumpkin came from Targets $ section.

Wait till you see what is coming for Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Halloween Swap......

Oh the scary things are coming out next month and what a fun time. I am in a swap for Halloween and this is going to be so fun. This swap is over at A Work in Progress by Christine Edwards. I just happen to fall into it one day on my way through blog land. Here are my two projects that I have for the Treat portion:

This was made with chipboard tags, Papertrey Ink new halloween paper, Letters (Target), owl stamp, spiders, old book pages, orange crepe paper, and ribbon.

Next, I made this tree with the pinwheel and letters:

I thought this turned out just great. I found the tree at JoAnn's in the Halloween section. It is plywood , very thin, but did the job. I painted it black and then added the glitter on the edges. I then made pinwheels out of Papertrey Ink paper and letters are from K&Company wedding white glitter. I found some stickers and thought adding them just gave it a new look. Fun to make and do not want to send it away. Now I will make one for myself.

My next project for this swap will be a trick. This can be many things like mask, jars, and other things. Not really sure but will be done this weekend. So look for the next item. I will be showing a hanging tag next.

Happy Fall......
