3 holiday craft ideas…

Hello Blogger Friends and Family,

It has been far too long since my last post.
First I want to give a great big thank you to Courtney of CourtsCrafts she has given me my very first Blog Award.  I am so honored to be a recipient of this award.  Lil me??!!  yyyyeeeeekkkkkssss... (I am squealing with happiness)
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this.
2. Share 8 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you have recently discovered
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards
Courtney creates such beautiful project post after post. You really must hop on over to her site and take a peek.
8 things about myself… hmmmm
  1. I have 4 children ages 20, 18, 15 and 3.
  2. When I was in high school, my dream was to become a Corporate Accountant. (got the degree… but really enjoyed cutting paper more.) J
  3. I am very nervous about blogging.
  4. I am a junkie for the written word, whether in print or online. I love to read.
  5. My favorite colors are natural greens and then of course PINK!
  6. PumpkinSpice is actually referring to my youngest daughter.
  7. My craft room is a disaster area
  8. I am a bargain hunter and love to go shopping!

    I would like to pass this blog award onto these lovely ladies that inspire me with their awesome projects and wealth of information.
    They may not see me posting comments often but I am in the background stalking there blogs. J

    There is so many more I would love to add and SO much inspiration shared among the crafting world…
    That is one of the things I just LOVE about us crafters…. WE SHARE… it's just part of US.
    Happy crafting to all and Thank you so much Courtney… you make me smile!

    Ok… the projects.

    1. This one is a gift so I will not say too much about it.. but I also wanted to post it on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #38

      I sure think it turned out cute though.

      This was a lot of fun to make and really stretched my creativity because I usually don't use the 'vintage' colors.

      Project 2 is another gift, for my mom.
      My inspiration for this one came from Courtney's post "Thanksgiving Favor Box". I just loved the concept and thought I would adjust it to make a Book Box with book mark.
      I have finally learn the technique of embossing.. I think!! Hehehe..

      Sorry pick is upside down. :(

    And Project #3 is for PumpkinSpice… aka Prisha… her first Advent Calendar. I saw this idea during a blog hop and cannot remember who originally posted the concept.
    I changed mine a bit to make it a 'double' feature. J
    After Pumpkin takes the daily tag off to get her treat she can use the tag as an ornament for the tree. Super Fun.

    Well I hope you enjoyed my post today.
    My goal for the coming year is to get more projects up on my blog. I so love creating.

    There are some really great blog hops happening during the month of December… please share any you know of with me… I love the hops and all the inspiration shared during them.

    Happy Sunday

    Blogger Hugs,
