Pinterest Angel

 I made a few of the angels that are being re posted all over Pinterest. they are very easy and quick to make. I used a round  plastic bead for the head and a star bead for her halo. I think they turned out cute. So I call this one a pinterest success. you can find the instructions here

Happy 2015

hope everyone had a wonderful New Year 
I went into the city with my family day before my birthday to see the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall and the tree in Rockefeller center. I broke my little toe so had to wear slipper boots because I cannot get my foot into any of my shoes that was not much fun needless to say. The show was wonderful and the tree fabulous even if we did see it during the day.

Merry Christmas

Hope everyone had a wonderful day. Christmas at our house was fantastic the children and grandchildren were all happy with their gifts.  I was very happy with gift certificates for dinners out yeah no cooking and new charms for my Pandora bracelet. I gave everyone a new dvd that I covered using the tutorial from Pinterest on September Ninth's blog   I loved her idea and just had to make these they were so easy to make. I can see me making them again for birthday gifts it just make giving a dvd that much more fun.

coffee cup

I made some gift card holders using the tutorial found here the instruction were very easy to follow but I somehow ended up with 2 cups of different sizes wonder how I did that guess I should have followed the measure twice cut once rule. well they both turned out cute I think.  Merry Christmas in 2 days my grand daughter is so excited she keeps telling everyone it's 2 days till Christmas !!

bag in a box

here are some little purse gift bags I made using the bag in the box technique I have always wanted to try one of these. They really do go together very easy and fun to make. I used the basic directions from the tutorial on Splitcoast stampers changed the paper sizes to create a wider and shorter bag so it looked more like a purse. I can see all sorts of bags by just changing the size paper you start with. I did not add the bottom edging as I thought the paper was pretty enough. My daughter filled these with goodies for some of her co workers. Have a great day.

chapstick purses

I made these cute little purses with the help of a video from Frances Martin aka Frenchie she shares how to make many wonderful things and I just love listening to her.  My daughter put  a chapstick and some candy in each for a little gift for her co-workers. 
that's it for today back to Christmas crafting
