Hello. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I have been so busy and happily selling on Ebay that I am so behind here on my blog. I want to share this cutie that is currently on Ebay. 

How adorable huh? Within a few hours she already had a bid. I love when that happens. Stay tune for some other great holiday items.

 Hello again. I know Thanksgiving is this week but I wanted to share my newest Hanukkah bears.
Last year,  A friend of mine was so disappointed in the fact that she had such a hard time finding Hanukkah cards that I thought I would make these cuties to have on hand just in case.
 I love the blue colors so much that of course I had to make both bears with blue eyes.
Thanks again for looking. Come back tomorrow to see a cute gingerbread girl I am currently working on.

          Hello folks. Look at these indians!!! I just love them.  
              This little guys is adorable with his corn in hand.
                            This cutie is holding a pumpkin.  
All these patterns are from Designs on Cloud 9. I love making tear bears, but they take so long since each one is made of multiply layers of mulberry paper. But boy they are adorable. Thanks for looking. More tear bears to come...

Hi folks. I want to share a birthday card I made for my nephew who turned 11 today. I used the 'all star' and 'birthday title' pattern sets from Designs on Cloud 9.
This is the inside of the card. I wanted to expand my horizon and try a different stitch on my sewing machine and thought it came out pretty good until I looked at these pictures. Ugh. It looks much better in person. Haha.
I also made him some maple bacon cookies. A few weeks ago, he told me how much he loves bacon. So I threw these together now my house smells amazing!!!
Happy Birthday Alec. I hope you have a great birthday and an amazing time tomorrow at your first Boston Celtics game :)

Hello everyone. I am back. I recently had eye surgery and am feeling great. So now it is my most favorite time of the year FALL. I love everything that has to do with this time of the year - apples, mums, corn stalks, pumpkins etc. So when Designs on Cloud 9 released this pattern set, it was a must to get and use.
                                  Here is a close up of the title.
   I love how this basket of apples came out. I love the rich colors.
Thanks so much for looking. Stay tuned for some amazing Halloween projects.

 Hello everyone. I wanted to share this awesome chocolate cake I made for a friend of mine.
I found this awesome cake carrier at the DOLLAR STORE today. How perfect for a dollar.
I bought the chocolate and bubble gum at Walmart in the Halloween section. Perfect time of year to buy in bulk. I attached each piece to a green foam ring, (also found at the dollar store) with glue dots that I had bought at a craft store.
Here is a pretty view from the top. I just love how it looks and how yummy it smells :)

Hello again. As I get ready to take off for a little vacation, I wanted to work on something to get me first in the mood. How adorable are these beach crabs?
I think this one just might be my favorite.
I used several Designs on Cloud 9 patterns to create this one page layout. The crabs are from 'beach crabs'. The photo/journaling mats are 'photo fun'. Finally, the background paper is from the 'scallops' set.
Thanks for looking and I can't wait to start my vacation in less than 24 hours. Maine here I come!!

Hi folks. I want to share a cute project I made using the 'roller skate' pattern from Designs on Cloud 9. I found these foam finger hands at Michael's and bought some foam flat sheets. I cut the patterns pieces out with my cutting machine. Then, traced and cut each piece out of the foam. I glue them together onto the foam hands. There were props to cheer on my niece at her derby match.
Haha, this is my mother in her chair on the floor cheering for the team. This picture shows the back of the foam hand - it has a heart with one of my niece's baby pictures and says 'we love Courtney'.
This is my Mom, my niece and me. What a great night. Courtney even won an award for MVP!! We are very proud of you Court :)

Hello. I want to share with you a project that I have recently done. A great friend of mine is fighting the fight of her life, breast cancer. I wanted to create something to cheer her up and show my support. I made this cute bouquet of paper flowers. I wanted to use all different shades of pink and of course use a pink ribbon in some way.
  This is the gerber daisy that is at the top of the bouquet, as well as some other shots...
This cute card was also mailed. I made it with a retired Designs on Cloud 9 pattern. I just love how the roses came out in the upper right corner. I know that she is going to win this battle because she is a fighter!!! Feel better Lara!!1
