I must say that I've dodged a bullet (or several) all year by not getting sick! But many of my friends have not been so lucky (some more than once)! Since some of you may be in the same boat, you might need a quick pick-me-up for your sickly friend!
I just got this Flower Shop bundle a few months ago and even though it's not particularly the season for fun little flowers I thought it would be just the right amount of "happy" for my sick friend! Don't you love it when your packaging matches up with everything (no, I'm not OCD!!) It just makes me happy when I come across packaging to coordinate with my gift! I added some Gorgeous Grunge to my card and Kleenex wrap along with the sentiment from Sassy Salutations.
Michelle is next in line, see how she shows love to all the sickies in her life!! It's hard to believe this is the last We Create blog hop of 2013! We hope to have even more exciting projects next year! Join us, won't you? (and invite your friends!)
I hope everyone had a beautiful, blessed Thanksgiving! I know I did! I had more people in my house than ever in 19 years--but it was fun! Now, on to Christmas!!
Welcome to everyone coming from Jeanna B's blog--I'm sure you were amazed at her talent!
Last year I did a fun subway art project for Christmas and because I really did it for myself, I used the colors in my home...silly me! I thought I'd re-do it in more bright traditional colors, since some people may like that, so here you go:
I printed the original as a 16 x 20 poster at Costco, or you could print it as an 8 x 10 also. Make sure if you upload it to a photo printer, you turn off the auto correct or it may change the colors drastically!
It was so easy to change the colors on MDS, as well as change the space between the letters for subway art (kerning), just some of the many reasons to get the software for yourself! You can try it out for free for 30 days, but at $19.95, it's a perfect gift for the crafter in your life (YOU!!!) And on top of that, Stampin' Up! is still having their MDS print product sale and several downloads are also discounted, so now is the time to do those Christmas cards you've been promising everyone!
Now, hop over to the other Julie, she recently returned from a fun trip to Disney World! LUCKY!!!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week already? I have family coming down from Utah and this year we are going out for dinner! We do Thanksgiving big in Vegas!! At least there won't be any dishes to do, right?
I'm loving this sale because I'm really not a Black Friday or a Cyber Monday type of girl--I hate that kind of pressure, so I like that there are deals to be had even if you miss out on the big doorbusters.
Check out the 24-hour sale today and the rest of the discounts are available through Monday, December 2, 2013 (Cyber Monday!)
Tomorrow is MDS Blog Hop day, so come back to see what I've been working on.
I finished my little wooden acorn! I know, I'm pretty surprised myself! I just couldn't let that cute little thing lay around all naked and stuff, so I painted it and added some Soho Subway DSP to give it a little attitude.
I love the grungy look the different patterns give to this fun project (I think Soho Subway is my favorite DSP in this year's catalog!) I love texture and bold patterns, so this fit perfectly! I'm just glad I got this finished BEFORE Thanksgiving, because I think once Thanksgiving was over, this little guy would've gone to the project "black hole" n'er to be seen again! Another big thanks to Jane for her lovely inspiration!
I always enjoy this time of year! The high is in the 70's here and it's just cool enough that I can throw a sweater on and not bake during the day!! Definitely the perfect time of year in Vegas!
A few weeks ago, my friend Jane posted this darling woodcut acorn covered with our fun Sweater Weather DSP--It. Is. So. Freakin'. Cute! I soooo had to CASE her idea. So, off I went to the wood store and not only found the cute acorn, but a little baby pumpkin as well. So I got BOTH! Here's my completed pumpkin:
I appreciate how well all the DSP in the pack coordinates together so I don't have to wonder if the patterns go together. (That has always been a struggle!) I added a bit of Sahara Sand ink on the edges along with some linen thread and natural trim to tie up the little tag. It will be the perfect addition to my fall decor. Thanks Jane!! I think I'll work on my little acorn later this week, so check back in to see how it turned out!!
