Happy Birthday Card

It's taken me months to get back to my cards and scrapbooking but I finally did it, and it felt good! it's not my best work; I could be very critical of it, but I LOVE the colors. It's such a happy card. I glimmer misted the flower, layered 2 buttons, butterfly charm, random ribbon, Fiskars corner embossing punch, paper from my stash, and Brilliance Ink on stamp. Oh yes, more to come ... soon .....

Kitty Vs. Ketchup


While at the dinner table last night we noticed that the cat was intently watching the ketchup bottle. After a few moments we realized that it was the ketchup dripping down the side of the bottle that he was so interested in. Take a look ... it's soooo cute and funny to watch.

I just might get to my Christmas cards yet! :)

Happy Holidays All!

Knifty Knitter Bag

Earlier this year I purchased 2 skeins of Galway Chunky Paint 100% Wool yarn from this amazing shop that my GF and I like to browse with the intention of making a felted bag for my daughter. Well at long last it is complete and the joint effort of my daughter and I has produced what I think is a cute little "sack" for her.

Now you must realize that I CANNOT knit with needles. I have tried, and even with the assistance from my extremely patient GF I cannot keep my tension consistent, among other issues. As a result I am limited to making whatever my handy-dandy Knifty Knitter will allow me to.

See, I LOVE my Knifty Knitter. And the more I learn to make something other than a scarf or hat; I LOVE it even more. ;)

This is the bag before felting:

This is the bag after felting:

For those curious I made this with the extra large yellow round loom, and the spool loom. It took approximately 1 1/2 skeins of Galway Chunky Paint 100% wool yarn @ 123 yards per skein.

Ribbon Storage

For those of you "blurfing" for craft storage ideas, here's how I store my ribbons that I purchase by the yard. Such yummy colors - makes you want to lick them!

I have found Walmart to be the most affordable place to purchase these floss boxes. The ribbon cards and clips are from Cropper Hopper, usually sold at Archivers in my area.

The carry case which I purchased at Michaels last year came with 3 of the storage boxes. Those cases flew off the shelves lemme tell you.
Bulkier ribbons or on the spool, I store in photo boxes labeled and stacked on my shelf.
Still hoping to get crafty soon and make some cards to post.
