New hobby!

I've found a new distraction in my life. I have spend a lot of time making hair bows. Can u guess what all the girls in my family are getting for Christmas!! Here are some that I've made to sell at either the craftshow I'm doing this weekend or at my lil sis' hair salon. I've got several holiday bows and then regular bows. It's been fun. I never knew I had so much ribbon. And know Izzy loves to have her hair done!!! Finally after 4 years I can put her hair in clips or even ponies and she's not screaming and ripping them out!! Yippee! I'll start posting my Christmas projects soon!!! Life has been crazy!!

more coaster boxes

My mummy box is super cute in person. It just didn't photograph very well. I tore jsut plain typing paper and then tipped the edges in brown chalk ink (love my cat eyes!!) then I randomly glued them around the box. These coasters were not tied together. Just used some really strong glue and the glued 'bandages' to hold it together.

THis one is my fav. the scarecrow hat is actually a textured brown then i added dimension (not that u can see in the pic) using my cat eye chalk

This is the best i could come up with for a snowman box. I cut the ends off two round coaters then trimmed two square coasters to make a box. It's small but it is still a cute teacher gift.

Coaster Boxes

Here's my version of the coaster boxes

This witch has curly hair. I just cut strips of paper and then curled them around a pen. Pretty cute huh??

The turkey turned out pretty cute. I tried to give it deminsion by using my brown chalk ink around the edges.

Altered Bubbles

Here are some cheapo bubbles from the dollar store. Ripped the label off and stuck a Halloween themed label on them. I stamped the pumpkin face on them and then embossed with orange embossing powder. I think these could have looked much cuter but i was in a hurry and it was 1:30 in the morning!!

Scrapbooking Convention Classes/Products

Look at all the fun goodies I bought!! I'm so motivated to finish my scrapbooks (haven't scrapped in a LONG time!!)

Here's more goodies!

Here's a pic of my Christmas Acrylic album. I have never worked with acrylic before it makes for a really fun see thru scrapbook. So here it is disassembled. I just need to finish up with embellishments and pictures. Pretty sure this one will be used as a Christmas gift for Gma!

This is the Memories Accordian Album. It is a chipboard album that is held in the handy dandy chipboard cover. This class was given by Rusty Pickle (great products) they gave away so much extra supplies!!

Here's the album all stretched out--Just need to embellish and add photos to both sides. Not sure what theme I'm going to use this album for--but I love the colors.
