Christmas House

OK ladies! I know I am a bit off showing some holiday items, but now I can relax and here are some holiday things in my house:

The deer was made by my grandmother.

This is one of my Navitiy Scene's, which is sitting on
a old radio.

The wreath was made by my mother in law and given
to us when we first married. Now over 19 years old.
Holding up pretty well. LOL
I made the star a few years ago. Bought a metal one
at Michael's on clearance.

These are  our presents. We had to put them up on the
table because one of the dogs was mad we had left
for the day. So they ripped open a bag.

Our growing santa collection. Some are on the tree,
but we had gotten the Cloftie ones in Vermont before
we moved from a christmas shop we love.

This guy was made with stamps I got at one of the CHA
conferences. So fun to make.

I made her in Vietnam. This is now over
43 years old. WOW!

My mom paints and our ornament we made as kids
was this glass one. She gave me mine about a few years ago.

Since we always make one for the year. I had found this
idea about 7 years ago. My mom and I made a few & gave
them to friends. Alot of work but you can see it was fun.

This guy my mom made when we were younger and she
have me one to keep.

A old friend made this for me and has been a reminder
of good times-not in touch any more.

When we first got married my husbend started to give
me ornaments. This was a series he gave me. Hallmark

We finelly found something to fit on top of the tree. I just found this
at Cracker Barrell. Is he not great???

Another Navitiy but not my first. She was not
taken out this year. My husbend missed a few boxes.

My grandmother painted this and I have a
few more smaller ones. Finally was
able to get some items but had to be after
she passed.

I hope you enjoyed the ride and had a wonderful Christmas. Take care and keep eating the turkey up.

Keep Crafting & hugs,

Boxes and Boxes

Merry Christmas to All!
May all have a wonderful day with family and friends. Take care and enjoy the day with the moments.

I made these wonderful boxes for christmas gifts. My inspiration came from Karin at Creative Chaos. She is so talented and after buying a kit from her. I fell in love. I just hope the lucky ladies will love them also.

Some are being saved for birthdays and what not. I could be surrounded by these in a room in all different colors. The dark color is a dark blue. Came out nice.

Christmas Crafts

Well you bloggers out there in blog land. I finally got my pictures taken of all the fun things I have been making.

I got so involved in making things for a craft show (my first) that I had not taken many pictures.

It was fun but did not sell much. Not many people came. It was held in a coworkers home. This was her second time doing this and she needs to still twik it some.

Here are some items I have made lately:

Here one of my snowman jars. Added a tree and some mica in the glass. He is getting some twiking also. 

Have you seen these on Pinterest?? Well I just had to make these. I did make two and I thought I had the picture but I guess not. A lot of pushing pins in the styrofoam ball. So pretty though. Not so sure about the belt and will be redone. Have other ideas for the belt.

I made the head and then put this one on a reuse sugar bowl.

This was one card I made and then I have in the background a subway plaque I made. I finally got the hang of using Picnik site. Took awhile.

All in all it was a fun craft christmas.

Sorry for not posting

So here I am and cannot believe how long it has been for  blogging. I was involved in my first craft show. Did not do well but went to another and the weather was bad for the next few days. Only did one night but sold some items. It sure can get you thinking your items are not good. Oh well. On to other shows maybe??

I will post some of things I made. I really had fun making them and hope down the road I will try some other items to make for it.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
