last minute teachers gift

So amid all the hustle and bustle of the end of the day, I realized I had forgotten to get a gift for Paiges teacher. I had a moment of panic, since it was after 9, the girls were in bed and I was not in the mood to run to the store. Their last day of school is tomorrow, so it has to be brought in the morning. I remembered something I had seen on a blog- delightfulorder- and inspiration hit!

I got out my trusty cricut and cut an A (for her teachers name) out of vinyl and stuck it on a mug that was part of another gift. Its a quickie, but it turned out OK :) And the best part- I didn't have to drag myself to the store after a long day!

MERRY CHRISTMAS from our family to yours

Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:14

I've been so neglectful

My apologies... I've been so neglectful of my little blog! I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last posted on here! I have no excuses, but I do have a few pictures of what I've been up to!

I made a couple of birth announcements- here is the one I made for my adorable, chubby little nephew:

And here are a few I made for Baby Sadie... what a cutie pie!

I've also had about a dozen Christmas card orders, but I won't post them on here yet :)
I also had a table in the Artisan fair this year- well half a table... that was a LOT of fun!!
And of course there is the usual Christmas craziness... gifts to buy, house to decorate, cookies to bake, parties to attend.... but I LOVE it all!!
Praying all of you will have a blessed Christmas and a JOYFUL new year!!
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

I'm in paper heaven!

I've been doing some scrapbooking lately, after taking a few months off... Ahhh, its good to be back :)

These pics are from our family vacation over a year ago... the girls first time on a plane. The title is a play on the french phrase for 'I love you' :)

Its based on this weeks sketch from

I liked how this one turned out... I used my cricut to cut out the cool chandelier, owl and the title.

The chandelier is cut from Core'dination cardstock and distressed a whole bunch to make it look old and like its from a haunted house :) fun!

Just some more fun details- glitter, stamping and all that good stuff...
I'm hoping to spend the rest of the week, and maybe even the weekend lost in my little scrapbooking world!

black and white damask

I made an elegant birthday card today....

I used this weeks sketch from 2s4y:

...And heres my take on it :)

I love the black damask paper from My Minds Eye... its gorgeous! And feels even better with its velvety flocking :)

a brown paper bag

Well, I'm back to my little blog... hopefully more often than lately!

I made this card, and added a little 'prettiness' to a plain, brown paper bag for a birthday present.

Happy Wednesday, and I'll be back soon :)
