Craft Show: Merry Monday

Hi everyone!  Well, I have a confession to make.  I was unable to get a video completed for today.  I am very sorry!  I under estimated how much time I needed to finish up some things for the show. Last night when I got home from the show I had a sick little guy on my hands and then I was exhausted and I wasn’t able to stay awake.  I will make it up by doing a give-a-way next Monday!!  Sound good?
If you have been following along with me over the last few weeks I have shared some items that I was preparing for a craft show.  The show was yesterday.  I have a few pictures of my table. Don’t you love the rock climbing wall behind me?  LOL.  This craft show was in a elementary school gym.


Have a great day!!

One Last Craft Show Ornament to Share

Hello!  Did you survive Halloween?  I sure hope so.  It was c-o-l-d here in St. Louis, MO but, we managed to come home with all of our fingers and toes (and enough candy to last us well, as long as I can stand to look at it before it hits the trash, lol)!  🙂
I wanted to share one last ornament design that I did for the craft show (it’s tomorrow!).  It’s not a Stampin’ Up! stamp it’s actually by Penny Black.  I have had this stamp for several years and use it each year.  Look at this snowman.  Really.  Look.  It’s sooo adorable and easy to color.  *love* my snowmen…


You may want to check out the other two ornament designs I did.  You can do that HERE and HERE.
Have a great day everyone!


Working On Craft Show Items…Wanna See?

Tis’ the season!  Am I the only one that feels like time suddenly escapes us once we hit October?  I mean.  I am so terrible this year.  I am VERY much into my Christmas cards and all of the fun Christmas projects.  I am also pretty much in control with things that I want to get finished up for an upcoming craft show that I was asked to participate in.  Here is a SECRET though…I have NOT gotten my kiddos their Halloween costumes yet.  I know.  I just got our decorations for Halloween up YESTERDAY!!  🙂  Wow, I just looked at the calendar…we are only TWO weeks away!  Oh well, it’ll all get finished.  Right?!
Well, like I said, I have really been getting into Christmas already.  I *love* this season.  What’s not to love, right?  The music, the decorations, the tree, the company (ooh, if I am lucky enough–I will have earned a present or two, also)!  *love* *love* *love*


The project that I am sharing today are ornaments that I make each year.  I have created some others with different images.  I will post those soon.  This snowman image is not Stampin’ Up!  Yes, every now and again I do purchase from other companies.  It’s not too often but, hey I’m human.  We didn’t have any current snowmen that were large enough for my ornament.  This Snowman is from a set called Be Jolly by Avery Elle.
I bought my ornaments from the craft store (they are porcelain).  I stamp my image in Jet Black StazOn ink.  I then color my them with Sharpies!  Yep, that’s it.  Of course, I can not do many projects without a little bling–I add glitter where ever possible!  🙂
I hope you enjoyed the project today!
PS…Did you see the baseball game last night?    The Cardinals lost. Man, I have to say that I get emotionally invested when it comes to the Cardinals.  I should have posted another Cardinal Christmas card yesterday.  It’s all my fault.  Oh well, there is always next year.
