Charlette's Creative Corner: White Christmas Wreath

OK, so I'm pretty bad about remembering to take pictures of my stuff. But my good friend Charlette took one of a wreath I made during a Wreath-Making party. She even featured it on her blog today. What a great friend. I'm just reposting her post! Thanks Charlette!  Checkout my White Wreath at her link below...

It's been so long, I can't decide where to begin! I figured I better start posting again or I'll forget I have a blog! I decided to start using my trusty iPhone app to help me- I should really have no excuses now! While I haven't been great about posting, I have managed to craft at least weekly to get my fix. I've made a few cards and banners, which I will start posting again.
This post is a card I made for a good friend at work. She turned 60- but honestly she looks awesome! I could only be so lucky to look like she does when I'm 45-50!
Happy Hour is one of my favorite stamp sets because it is not like any of my other sets. It's perfect for the adult who has already received a ton of balloons and flowers through the years.
Cheers to you, Lynne for looking great all through the years!

Over the weekend, we celebrated my godson's baptism. Isn't he lucky to have such a creative Mommy and God-mommy? Michelle and I made over a hundred pinwheels and bought these HUGE 3' balloons. We had a great time planning it all. I also ordered cakepops from a co-worker whose teen daughter makes them; not only do they look good - they taste great too. The candy bar was also a huge hit, with several apothecary jars and all-blue candy.  Yes, everyone's tongue was blue by the end of the party. Lastly, I do need to mention SU was present in every detail because all the little labels were designed in MDS2.  Get your free 30 day free trial now through this link! It's really a must-have when you're throwing a party.

Baby Owls

Welcome Baby Banner

I ran into this photo and decided I needed to write about it. This was made with my Cricut Expression, which I really love to play with. I made this banner for my sister-in-law's baby shower. She loves owls and has the most adorable nursery.  Stay tuned for more owl themed crafts!
