I'm a slacker!!!

So sorry for taking soooo long to post.  I really don't have any excuses.  I've been busy and sick but you'd think I could find a minute in the last month wouldn't you.  LOL!!  I'll definitley have to make a New Year's resolution to work on this blog in a more timely manner. 

So what's been going on??  Since I've been on here last my daughter was in a car accident but she was able to walk away with a few bruises so to say I'm thankful is an understatement!!  My son is moving out this week into his own place and I'm trying to get ready for Christmas.  Day by day things will get done right? 

I'll be working on some sewing and some Christmas cards for the next few days.  For today I'll leave you with some pictures of some gifts I've been making.  I think I've made 16 of these bags so far.  I think they are very pretty.  What do you think?

Met some great ladies!!

This past Saturday I demonstrated at a workshop my Aunt Donna held in her home in Fredericton.  I met some of her wonderful friends and I think they had a great time making their projects.  They even let me take their picture.  Thanks ladies!!
Below is the hostess gift I made.  Snowmen are sooooo cute!!  And I certainly love the snowman stamp in the JOLLY OLD SAINT NICK stamp set.

What a wild day!!

This has been an absolutely wild windy rainy day here.  I'm so glad I am now home warm and safe and very glad I don't have to be anywhere this evening!!  I'm preparing for a workshop tomorrow.  I've never actually packed up for a workshop before.  Here's hoping I don't forget anything because it's an hour drive!!  LOL!!  I wanted to show you a card I made for a friend's birthday.  I wanted to do fall colours because the leaves are so pretty right now.  Have a look.

Getting ready for Christmas

I know Halloween hasn't arrived yet but I really love Christmas and everything that goes along with it.  Below are the projects I've made for my workshop on Saturday.  We are making a Snowman card and a Santa giftcard holder.  See what you think. 

The images I used are from the stamp set Jolly Old Saint Nick in the Holiday Mini Catalogue.  It is such a cute set.  Can't wait to do more with that stamp set!!

Still here

Well you've probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth ... no just busy... not a good excuse though... LOL.... I promised you a picture of the bag I was making and here it is.  A friend wanted it for a young girl for Christmas and asked for purples.  Kind of funky huh??  Hope she likes it!
Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving?  I sure did.   Everyone in my house loves a turkey dinner and leftovers don't last too long around here.  I was thinking perhaps I should cook 2 turkeys. I know they wouldn't go to waste. 

I have a workshop on Saturday and I was busy tonight creating the projects we are going to make.  I'll post pictures later.

Where has the time gone???

Well, my goodness, here it is Sept 30 and it I haven't posted for quite a while!!  I've been back to work and before you know it the week has gone by.  I've been crafting but I don't have a pic to show ... yet.  When the bag that I've been making is finished, I will post it.  It's very colorful with shades of purple!!  I just found buttons for it tonight and I'll be sewing those on shortly.  A friend asked for purples so ...

I've just booked 2 workshops for Stampin' UP! and I'm sooooo excited for them.  I've never had an actual workshop to demo at before.  There are so many wonderful products and I'm in the process of designing and creating what we are going to make at the workshops.

Well must go and get busy.  Until next time,  happy crafting.

My last day of vacation :(

The inspiration for this card came from my friend and Stampin' UP! upline Tina Weller.  As you can see I'm kind of in Christmas card mode.

Crafting day

What an awesome day!!  It's sunny and crisp...my favorite time of year!  And, I'm on vacation this week and don't have anywhere to go today.  Yay!!!  I can just stay home and craft.  Another Christmas card to show you, hope you like it.  The bottom pic is the inside of the card. I love the fabric Stampin' UP! is offering now.  It's gorgeous!!!  I used the new trim die and fabric from the Holiday Mini as well as the Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon from the mini as well to create this card.  Have I mentioned how much I love Cherry Cobbler, I LOVE IT!  Cherry Cobbler is deep and rich and oh so pretty.

Well, when I saw this material at my favorite quilt shop, I knew I had to use it on a Christmas card.  Aren't they cute????  I just fell in love with the images and they are so whimsical!!  Hope you like them too.  The top picture is the card front and the bottom pic is the inside of the card.

Hi.  I know it's been a while since my last post but I'm new to this and still trying to update my page with  limited knowledge of how this all works.  Bear with me and hopefully you will be interested in what you see here.  I made the cards below last night.  What do you think??

I absolutely love this 'Christmas Collage' stamp from the new Holiday Mini catalogue.  Isn't it yummy?  The Cherry Cobbler cardstock is so rich and combined with Very Vanilla,
well lets just say, WOW!!  I also LOVE the new 'Seam Binding' ribbon in the new mini.  I know, I know... everything in the new mini is beautiful.  And I want it all.  What else is new????  LOL.
