Finally, a blog post. These are little gifts I made for my family and friends this year for Christmas. I got the idea from Debbie Olsen. She used apple cider packets. I couldn't find those so I used hot chocolate packets instead. The stamps used are Papertrey Ink Tiny Treats: Christmas along with the die Mat Stack 1. The ink, buttons and ribbon are just random items from Stampin Up, Adirondack, Close to my Heart and Michaels.

Halloween Projects

All of these items were made with the Hooligans Workshop on the Go from Close to my Heart. There are candy holders with wrapped hershey nuggets, little purses holding candy corn, lip balm holders and holders for Bath and Body Works anti-bacterial gel. The ink colors used are Lagoon, Pear, Gypsy, and Sunset, all from Close to my Heart. The stamp sets are The Boo Crew and Troublemaker. I also used my Cricut to cut out the little purses and gift bags. These were really fun to make but took a lot of time.

Finally getting around to getting some things posted. This was from this summer for my nephew Oliver's first birthday. All of the paper supplies are from the Close to my Heart "Everyday Celebration" kit. The ink colors are Chocolate and Dutch Blue. I have made a ton of stuff but never seem to get around to posting it all. I am going to try to be better at that. I have a lot of Halloween projects to get photographed then I will post those too.

This Year's Christmas Cards

These are a few of this year's Christmas cards. The first one with the wreath is an A Muse stamp for the wreath and the sentiment is Inkadinkadoo. All of the components on the other two cards are CTMH except for the punches. The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch and on the third card the punch is from Fiskars. I have another card I did this year but I forgot to take a picture. I will do that and post it. It is with the Heartfelt Christmas set from CTMH. I will get that posted soon. Right now I am working on a wedding gift set. I can post that after the 23rd. I also have to start on my Valentine's projects. Last year, Owen let me make his valentine's for his kindergarten class. We'll see this year. Sometimes I think he likes the character ones from a box. If he decides to go that route then I will make some lollipop covers or something cute. I got a lot of inspiration for these xmas cards from the ladies on the CTMH bulletin board. I cannot remember who they were but I thank you all for the ideas.

Charity Auction and Party

This was a basket of CTMH products and projects I made for an auction at our company "Girls Night Out" Christmas party. All of the money raised from the auction went to the family of an employee in the school district I work for whose son is undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. It was a great party and a great night. The baskets people donated were so beautiful and generous. My basket had a couple stamps sets, ink pads, brads, jingle paper and ribbon. In addition, I made some Christmas cards and some gift tags to go in the basket to show some projects that could be made with CTMH products. I hope the winner liked it.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone. I am very excited about the new year. I have resolved to be a better blogger this year. I have so many projects photographed but haven't found the time to post them. I am going to work harder at that this year. I already have been working on my fitness goals for a few months now. Santa brought us a Wii for Christmas and a Wii Fit Plus to go with it. I am very excited. I have been doing the running and am amazed how much I like it. I thought it would be really hard to run, but I seem to be keeping up just fine. The true test will be running outside when the weather is better. It is always a struggle keeping my weight down and staying in shape but I am up for the challenge. I hope all of your dreams come true in 2010.
