Altered Pot Holder

Hi everyone, I am still participating in swaps.  These altered pot holders are one of my 12 Days of Christmas gifts.  They are folded to make a pocket, added to the edge is lace trim and flat backed trim.  Added embellishments are beaded trim, flowers and stickles.  The potholders  loop acts as the hanger, this also holds your scissors.  Great for gift giving.   TFSB!


Wishing everyone and a Happy Thanksgiving.

Christmas Ornament Swap

Hello everyone, I am posting again after a few problems with my laptop and the blog.   I am in an ornament swap and I created these ornaments with wooden spools.  These are called the "Santa Repair Kit", which I did from memory.  I think they turned out pretty good.  They are simple and easy to make with just a few items. A great project to do with the kids.   I hope the ladies will like them.  TFSB

Another project I created for Valentines Day. I don't have many rubberstamps so, I used my graphics program and created the topper for these cute pens for Valentine's Day. These make great party favors for any girlie event. This inspiration came from Julie at "thoughtsthatstick." Visit her blog for more cute ideas and inspiration. Thanks for stopping by.

Valentine Teabag Gift Mug

Today's project is a little something I made for my Valentine's Day display. These are celestial teabags which do not come with individual covers. So, using one of the designs I had, I created the Valentine theme covers the them. I bent back the top corners and then the same for the bottom corners to give it the flower effect then added to the mug with a styrofoam ball, then added a few Hershey minis with the same theme. This inspiration came from the January Woman's World Magazine. Thanks for stopping by.
