Just showin'

I'm posting a real quick Christmas planner I made up via the site

I normally don't do the pre-made stuff, 'cuz Im a DIY kinda gal, but these are done so well and it's so easy to print off the front label and put it all together in a Composition book.
 We're putting these together today. Should be fun!

Birthday Count Down Calendars

I made these two count-down calendars for some friends of ours.

The picture on this one is not as good, but turned out very cute!

Kid's love to open one box each day, six days before their birthday. My boys certainly love theirs!

Oh's almost the Christmas season. It happens at least once a year. ;)

I am getting things done... not one thing has been crossed off I had to cross off painting the kitchen. So far, that's the only project that's been axed. Every year at least two or three are voted off the island.

I made these cards over the weekend and I am including a fry box in this class. The notebook I showed will have to go to the next Christmas class; we won't have enough time for it with these cards.

 This first card was inspired by a stamped card I saw on Pinterest.  I thought the label would look cute with paper and not stamped. 

I wish I had more time and I'd make up 40 of these for my personal Christmas cards.

This card is a glimmery, shimmery white paper with a acetate window. The words are stamped inside the card.

This fry box I made last year before I got sick...finally, we get to make it! I will make one with a snowflake in Kraft brown to replace the owl...couldn't find it today. I will hunt it down and update the blog.

I'm going to post about birthday boxes later today...It's all the rage on our street. More soon......

F'all Occations 3

It's Fall! It's elections day! It's almost Christmas! 
I am just agog at how November casually strolled up and totally slapped me in the face with all these important events!
Don't tell me you saw it coming...

Last week my family went to Washington state to play in the water park for the weekend. We go every November, and we always have a fun, exhausting time. We also don't get any pictures, 'cuz I'm not crazy enough to take my camera or my phone into the water area. So no high-action shots, but lots of fun memories. I'm good with that.

 Before we left for a mini vacation, I was able to make two cards. I'll have more time tomorrow to make number 3 while my 'baby' is in Pre-K. SO check back in on Wednesday....Hope you voted!
