Happy 2016!

Hello!  Oh, it has been a while since I last posted.  December was busy with lots of Christmas activities and crafting.  Then we went on a vacation and I closed up my Etsy store for a couple weeks.  I have been trying to get back into crafting but feel like I need to recover from vacation!  The only thing I really love about traveling is not having to cook or wash dishes.  That was the best!

Here are some projects I didn't get a chance to blog about.

I made this fabric basket for our cousin's baby.  I was happy that the diapers fit so nicely in this basket!

Also made this little tutu.  I switched out the stuffed animal later since the bear belongs to one of our kids.  Just wanted to see the fit.  This was quick and easy to make.

Oh, I also won some cute prizes from Stacey Yacula Studio!  She designs some amazingly cute stuff!  She has a wide range of products for sale too and an Etsy store.

Also won this super cute penguin and was so excited to share it with my penguin loving daughter.  Did I ever share my finished tree skirt on my blog?  Got to use it for the first time this past Christmas. 

I made some simple calendars too for my Etsy store.  I think I only have this maneki neko one left.

I made a simple monkey one too.  I love the adorable little orange/tangerine.

Okay, I am working on something but it's taking me so much longer than I had originally thought and it's driving me a little crazy.  But I don't want to just toss it on the side and move on.  Ugh.  I've been crocheting a little more too ever since I made my daughter a scarf for the trip.  Crocheting is pretty relaxing and I only crochet when I'm waiting in the car for my kids so it takes me a while to finish.  I'm working on another scarf and not sure what I'm gonna do with it yet since it's not like I need one living in Hawaii. 

On a side note, it was cold on our trip and I wore gloves every day.  But it made me wonder about fingerless gloves!  My fingers were so cold and didn't really understand why anyone would want to expose their fingers! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute diaper basket and tutu! And cute prizes! Don't make me look at more cute stuff! Nice calendars too! Yeah, seems a lot colder this year compared to last year! I keep thinking we can donate our cold weather things but years like this, I'm glad I kept them!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
