Making Presents!

Turn on the music, get out the glue, find all the glitter, and the time just seems to fly!!! There's nothing like it when the MUSE hits you and you have the peace and quiet, and the time, to do what you love!!

Life doesn't get much better than this!!
*
I'm sooooo easily amused. Just one of the things I got to put together today. The green glitter is so much sparklier in person. Glitter is not my friend when it comes to taking pictures.
*
Making my list and checking it twice......who's been naughty and who's been nice.....

Christmas Glitter

It's so hard to get a good shot of glitter.......but we had fun!

Sorry I haven't been a very good blogger lately! I like to get all my Christmas shopping done early, or at least when the weather is still good, so I can spend the cold, snowy, ugly days closer to Christmas in my studio making art and presents!!!!

But Erin and I have had a few moments to make some decorations and Stickle things up! So here are a couple more to add to our chain we're going to hang somewhere.

I did get the tree up....all the groceries for Thanksgiving dinner bought...and now the fun part of cleaning the house. My theory usually is "wait till they leave....THEN clean the house" when you have grandkids. Because the floor always needs cleaning when they leave! We'll see.......

Good night and have a great Thanksgiving!

More Glitter and Christmas


Like I said before, the Glitter Bug has bitten me!!! Forgive the poor photos, but glitter is very hard to photograph for me. Here are a couple of ornaments that I've put together in between watching the "little ones" this weekend and Christmas shopping before it snows.

These are Basic Grey pieces enhanced with stamps, Distress Ink, chipboard pieces, and of course, Stickles of all sorts! Go try some!!!

According to the little card I got in the mail, I have something in the new Stamper's Sampler issue Dec/Jan.

And my new blog friend Wanda emailed this morning to say it was true!!! She has her new copy, and it's in there. This is my picture. I like the reflection on the coffee table from the stamped diamonds.

This was a great way to start the day!!!

Thanks Wanda.....go visit her blog for some eye candy!

Christmas Tag

Boy has this glitter gotten into my blood!!! Thank you Lisa Pace!!
The wings from Maya Road have vintage glass glitter on them from Art Glitter.
Here I used a Maya Road tag and a couple of blossoms as a base. Then Distress Ink and embossing folders on them. Last I used a bit of gold embossing powder. This Cuttlebug is sooooo much fun!!!!

The vintage image is from Paper Whimsy. She steals your heart. Top it off with a key from Tim's Idea-ology and some ribbons.

I can hardly wait to hang these little ladies on the tree, and it's not even Thanksgiving yet!!!

Be Well.

A Milestone Birthday
















This Sunday is a milestone birthday for my dear husband, Bill. Men never really care, they say, about their age, so I won't dwell on that. But it was a great time to get out all the Cuttlebug embossing folders and go to work!

I LOVE numbers!!!! So this background one is great for this bday card. The right number has to be in there somewhere, right?


The Birds and Swirls worked out great for the phrase background and of course, you must somehow work in Swiss Dots on most everything! Distress Inks are rubbed ever so lightly across the embossing. Is this fun, or what?????

The stamp is perfect for a man's card from Endless Creations. The days of the week is from Collections and of course the Idea-ology stuff is from Tim!

Christmas Stars
















I love stars!!! Here is one that can hang on the tree, or use to decorate a special gift.

I embossed metal from Ten Seconds Studio on a chipboard star using the Cuttlebug, added a Maya Road frame colored with Distress Inks, and a Fragment over a vintage photo one one side.
~
Then I embossed paper with the Cuttlebug, used glitter pen accents, and a great piece of Idea-ology on the other side. How simple is that???

I've already voted!!! Have you?

VOTE!!!!
















OK!!! Don't forget to vote tomorrow.....just do it!

Enough of that..........here's some more Maya Road tags....they are soooooo fun. Santa is my all time favorite Tim stamp. You can see the corner from Cuttlebug embossing folders on the top of the other tag. I LOVE THE FOLDERS??????
~

Papers are from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.
~
The glitter doesn't show up well, but it's there in a subtle sort of way. And gold dots!!! Just a little bit of bling does a girl good!

Be well.....
