I won a wonderful giveaway....

I was a winner of a bead giveaway over on Inspirational Beading blog. She had a giveaway from MarutiBeads for 60 beads.

This is what I saw when I opened the box. I was like WOW!!!! I must have not looked at the description about the giveaway since it was for 60 beads. Check out the other pictures.

They came in pacs of either 5 or 6 beads which were individually wrapped.

These are a couple of  pictures of the beads I received. Now I have to be real creative and find ways to make some things with them. The beads are handmade. Yes Handmade.

12 Days of Christmas Swap....

How can we not love Splitcoaststampers???  I really love swaps. Who does not love to get something special in the mail. So here was a swap to do 25 Days of Christmas. Can you believe all of the ladies in 3 groups made 25 items for 25 ladies. WOW! and fun.

So I thought and thought what to make. I took a class to make some wonderful Christmas Tags and these are a product of ideas from that class. I.  kind of lost some of the tags so I was not sure what some were. But the poinsetta and tree were the newest ones. My poinsetta is a cut from a Cricut Cartridge. It is so pretty and I thought the best.

My day was the 21st so I made a tag and put the number on it. I then added the tags to a glassine bag. See the bottom picture.

Hope you enjoyed looking.

Christmas Tea Cups

My Best Friend/Adopted Sis is having a Church Tea and needed some tea cups. I made 30 for her daughter in laws bridal shower and she asked me for these for the tea. How could I not say no and since I really needed something new to do.

You always want things to be perfect for that someone special. Right???
Well I found the perfect paper, since the theme was Holly and Poinsetta's, how is this not great? I ran the flower under an embossing folder and then used a brad from Stampin Up.

The tea cup is from My Time Made Easy. She has alot of templates for sale and they are only $5.00. She even has a Tea Pot.

I did add a black scallop botton square. I did sponge the cups and bottom with black ink. This gave it a vintage look.
