Hello everyone! How was your Christmas?  I hope you all had a blessed Christmas with your loved ones.  Mine was wonderful! Today I am sharing a last minute gift I made for the Holidays. 
Hobby Lobby had their candles and accessories 50%
off so I purchased the candle, cross and gold candle
 holder.  The ribbon is from my stash. 

I wrapped the burlap and ribbon around the
candle and attached it with glue. 

On the back of the cross is a metal needle to insert
into the waxed candle.  Hobby Lobby has a
variety of candle pins. I have never notice these
 before but I really like them. 

The back of the candle.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Lot of Trees

Happy Friday. It's a busy time of the year getting ready for the Holidays. I always have big plans to make Christmas crafts and homemade gifts but every year I run out of time. This year is no different ...heehee.  Oh well there is always next year right? 

Every year I try to do something different when I give my money gifts.  This year I found these Money Tree Lots on Pinterest.  The original posting for these were on Kim Knight Kreations.
I decorated each one a little different. 

View from the top.

Can you see the mini lights?  They are made by
 Jolee's boutique.

Here is the money folded and the styrofoam for the base. 

My sisters were visiting the other day and I asked them
if they could help me fold my money. They 
and thought I was crazy.  They did help and 
we did have great time folding money. 

I couldn't find a tutorial for the Tree Lot so I  
made the base using styrofoam, cardboard and a 
exacto knife.  I did use a tutorial
 on how to fold the money.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a Merry Christmas!!

Birthday Gift

Hello and Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a gift I made for my neighbor Heather.  Her birthday was last month and I asked myself what do you get a person who has a craft room that looks like Hobby Lobby?  She has everything crafting so I made her this photo book. 
This is the cover of the book.
Ace is one of her grandchildren.  We had a play day
last summer with my niece Isabella. 

The book opens to the right for the first picture. 

It unfolds one more time. 

The book has three fold out flaps to attach pictures. 
This book could be used to insert into a larger photo book.  You have a wonderful weekend!

December Birthdays

Happy Friday to you!  Hope you had a wonderful week.  I am sure you are out there shopping, decorating, wrapping and checking your Christmas list.  I have have lots of December birthdays so here is the birthday card I made for my brother-in-law.
The stamps used here are from CTMH.

I used lots of browns and black inks to distress the card. 

I love this saying....as I am getting older...hahaha
