WOW It's Been SO Long Since I Updated This Blog!!!!

I'm finally getting back into crafting again after a long delay!! I'm going to post some pictures of the decorations and gifts that I made for my niece's baby shower last week! It started off with seeing the picture of the popcorn buckets and knowing my niece loves popcorn! It was a BIG hit and that really tickled me! Then I saw the sucker holders!! I could not find flat suckers anywhere so I had to go with the Dum Dums Brand as they were the smallest! I still had a problem with the onesie closing, since they were thicker. I ended up using tape to hold them closed! Jace is the baby's name, so the Dino Onesie of his is to match the other family members! I made the shirts for all plus the onesies with the college football teams on them. I am a diehard Carolina Gamecocks Fan, as is the mom to be! The dad is a Clemson (YUG) Fan, so since I do love the dude, I painstakingly made a Clemson One!! My niece gave me the dirtiest look when she opened it, LOL I am also working on snowmen for a snowman swap in my crafting group. As of this time, I have to make 11, but more may sign up before the deadline. I started on them and was moving right along, then realized the painting I did on them showed the brush lines so "loudly" that they were not going to work, so I had to remove the paint and start over. I can't share pictures or the idea as of yet as someone from the group may read this, LOL I will attach a few other items I have made recently to this post as well! The Medical Shirt is one I made for my physician! When I go to see him, I always say "Dr. Google said it was ..." LOL I pray all are doing well, was safe from the recent hurricanes and healthy! *Hugs*

Happy Birthday

To my sister in law!!! My sister in law loves unicorns, so I knew I had to incorporate them in her gift! I looked all over before finding the one I felt was just right! She loved it! It just tickles me to be able to create a personalized gift in a matter of minutes now! This was my first time working with glitter htv! When I went to weed it, I ripped the "M" so I had to redo it! It could be that I didn't change the depth of my blade before I cut it, as it just didn't separate as easily as regular htv! It isn't as thick as it appeared to be before I cut it either though!

Still Alive and Kicking!!!

Wow, it's been so long since I last updated my poor blog! In all honesty, It's been a rough year thus far. I was diagnosed, last year, with severe emphysema, so I have more down days than up here lately. I bought myself a heat press last month and it has awakened my love of creating again!! I am SO in love with this new tool! I've only used it a couple of times, but it just amazes me at how easy it is to repurpose something old and make it new again! My green tank top has been in my dresser for years, but I rarely wear it other than for yard work and such. Well, now it is more exciting and just may get more use!! I've been wanting a fishing shirt but just couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I made myself one with an old shirt that was also in the dresser. My great nephew just turned 3 and I had planned on making him a shirt with a dinosaur on it but just hadn't had a chance to go purchase the shirt as of yet, so tonight while resting a pulled muscle in my back, it dawned on me to make a pillow out of the large amount of fabric I've been hoarding for years now, LOL In hindsight, I would pull the dino down a bit and bring the name up a bit, but he won't care one way or the other! The last shirt is one my mom wanted, but couldn't find it through her searches- it was super simple to create myself! I hope everyone is doing well and having a great start to the year! Love and *Hugs*
As a side note, I've had my Silhouette Cameo for a while now, but just ordered myself the CB09 Blade holder and blades and I have got to say, it was one of the best purchases I have made in a long time!!! Wow does it cut intricate designs and tiny lettering without skipping a beat!!! I purchased mine off E-Bay as it is my drug of choice, LOL

Christmas 2015

It's been a rough week here in my household, as my beloved Snickers (Terrier Mix) went missing on the 18th! To work through the sadness and worry, I decided to pull out my snowmen. It takes me several days to decorate, so it did get my mind in other places, if only for a short bit. I haven't put the tree up as of yet, but it is in my plans for tomorrow. I want it all done before the kids come on Thursday! Here is what I have gotten done thus far...
