Another Tile

This one is for my nephew who recently joined Cub Scouts. I put the letters too high up so I was unable to put the frame around it, but it was a total bear to put together! I can only say I am happy to have it completed, LOL *Hugs*

I was at a loss as to what to get all the nieces, nephews and their significant others this year, so I came up with the idea to make them all tiles with a vinyl design. I am quite tickled as to how they came out and can't wait to give them to them as well! *Hugs*

Christmas 2011

Well, I finally got around to taking some pictures of the house decorated for Christmas.  As  you can tell in the pictures, I am a snowman fanatic! I love me some snowdudes, LOL  I am going to cut out the writing at this point and let the pictures do the talking for me! *Hugs* and Merry Christmas!

It's a Peanut Christmas!

I have a family member who loves Snoopy, so I wanted to make a special card for him. I went in search of Snoopy, Woodstock and Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree SVG Files and instead came up with this! I LOVE it, LOL I found the Snoopy File at: http://coriscricut.blogspot.com/2011/05/snoopy.html and I turned it into a shaped card and added my words to the front and it was done!!!  Ok, you know I had to have a few mishaps and of course, I did, LOL I can't tell you how many times I printed the words due to the wrong size, turned the paper over and managed to print right on top of the words again, cut them out wonky and such, ran the ink on the first perfect set I had by trying to clean off some stray glue, glued my hand to the keyboard, mouse and scraps of paper, but I hung in there and I think it will truly bring a smile to his face! *Hugs* and I so hope each of you are having a super blessed holiday season thus far!!  I will post pics of the holiday decorations (snowmen) in a later post!

My Mojo's Vacation Has Ended!

Wow, am I a pathetic blogger or what?!  I have been non existent for 2 months now, how horrible is that, LOL  My mojo went on vacation and finally returned! I just hope it stays a bit longer this trip!  I did make one card in October that I failed to share- it was for my youngest son's 18th Birthday (not sure how I have an 18 yr old at 29, but must be something to do with this new math stuff, as I never could figure it out) plus one in November for my best friends's birthday! I was so excited to finish my BF's Card that I forgot to take a picture before I sealed it and then she never received it! We have no clue where it landed, so I made another and mailed it earlier this week (can't share a photo yet as she hasn't commented on receiving it yet, but I DID take the picture this time) and finally, I made a few Christmas Cards! I joined a swap in my SCAL Group and we were to make 5 cards, sign and send them to the 5 names below us on the list and receive 5 in return. I stressed over these 5 cards something awful, but the other night I was bored and decided to pull out the chalks and color the Santa's I had already printed and from there, they just sort of all came together for me and I had them finished and ready to be mailed!  Sadly, due to the fact that they were 5X5 square cards, the post office promptly returned three of  them to me the next day with a +20 cents needed stamp, LOL  So, the first card is the one I made for my son- he's an avid BMX Bike Rider so I thought the "flipping" part was ideal and he totally loved it!  The next picture is of my CD Cabinet that is on my wall- I love to decorate it for the holidays and when I saw the snowballs in the bucket, I knew I had to cut that one out, LOL Next is the Santa Cards I made for my SCAL Swap and finally, a snowman card I saw that was another "Just have to make" items- I totally love it!!!  I so hope each of you are enjoying the holiday season and finding your mojo home to spend some time in the craft room as well! *Hugs*
