Kreativ Blogger Award

Hi!  Wow, another award for our blog!  This one is from Handmade Cuties.  Check out her cute little creations HERE!  She makes the most intricate beaded designs and lots of other cute stuff.  Thank you so much for this award!

So in accepting this award, I'm supposed to share 10 random facts about me. 

1.  I'm lucky enough to be a SAHM though my 3 kids all go to school now.  Some day I may actually get a job.  Everyone tells me being a mom is a job but I mean a job that will pay me money.

2.  I used to be a speech therapist.  I love therapy with little kiddies--so adorable!

3.  I love to watch reality shows.  Before it was all the VH1 ones like Flavor of Love or the Bret Michaels one.  I don't know why--they're funny!

4.  I'm also hooked on watching Auction Hunters.  Wow, those guys can find awesome stuff and sell it for lots of money!

5.  I love to eat junk food.  KFC--yum! 

6.  I think I cook steaks better than most people.  Hahaha!  Love to fry (not grill) porterhouse or rib eye steaks!  Okay, Ruth Chris' does a pretty good job but I haven't had good steaks at restaurants I've been to.

7.  I love peanut M&Ms but not the plain kind.

8.  I just watched Breaking Dawn Part 1 yesterday.  Yes, I'm slow but if you wait, it's only a $1 rental at the public library. 

9.  Hmmm, I seem to talk about food and TV a lot.  I promise I don't sit on the couch and watch TV while eating M&Ms all day.  Sometimes I craft and blog.  But really, I rarely watch TV during the day.  It's mostly when I'm washing the breakfast dishes and then again the dinner dishes that I watch TV.

10.  I used to work for my parents at their restaurant as a waitress.  I learned that I cannot be a waitress because I would get irritated at customers.  And the bad thing is, I would show that I was irritated.  I know, poor customer service.

Okay, so I've noticed we've got some new followers.  I'm gonna pass this on to them.  Go check them out.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
