Get Sketchy Challenge ~From Trash to Treasure!

Well the challenge this week over at Get Sketchy is to make something fabulous out of something you were originally going to throw out. I was going to throw out this Cosmo Cricket ribbon packaging when my creative mind said "hey lady! a 4x6 would fit perfectly in there". So this is what I came up with a wall hanging, ornament thingy! I hung it from my twine and clothespin display that I hang all my cards from, and it added a very festive touch not to mention that little santa girlie is pretty darn cute! Feel free to enter the challenge and go green! You never know what treasure is waiting to be reclaimed!

APOS! Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to APOS's very first ever blog hop! Since we weren't doing a reveal we wanted to share a little creativity with everyone and wish you all a merry Christmas! For this merry blog hop we were given the following 2 sketches designed by Cori-Lyn to play with. I am discovering that I really like sketches as I was able to do these 2 projects in about 45 minutes! I will for sure be trying some more in the future!

And here is what I did.....


PLease HOP on over to Vicki's Blog to see her rendition of the sketchs, and have a MErry Christmas Everyone!

Christmas Craftiness

Well, I have been busy crafting up a storm for the holidays. I have made a wreath, took a frame class with my friend Dawn, and made a gazillion cards! Here are some of the projects I have been working on.....
An altered paint can made for Tayla's Kindegarten Teacher, that we plan to fill with yummy treats (plus she is pregnant) So I am sure this will be great for her!

The frame I did for my Grandparents for Christmas....this was a class I took with my talented friend Dawn...

And a wreath I made from Martha Stewart Wrapping paper.....

These are just a few of the things I wanted to share today, I will have more very shortly! Hope the magic of the season is filling everyone up! Merry Christmas!

Inspired Friday.....

Well, Today I finally got my act together and bribed the kidlets to get into the super cheesy Christmas outfits I bought them. I wanted to send out some cute recent christmassy pics with our family Xmas cards this year. Anyhoo my friend Koren wanted to share a link with our group of girls and I found these super sweet FREE Digital Christmas Cards! I will be printing them out and sending 2 with each card! Thanks Koren for guiding me to this fabulous find! You Rock!
