DCWV cone wreath

I received someĀ paper stacksĀ from DCWV to make projects, including one to make seasonal cone wreaths. As Thanksgiving approached I decided to quickly try to put together the fall wreath.

I had to cut my own circle base from chipboard. There is one base included but knowing I will need to make 4 wreaths total […]


Update & crafting with kids

Remember these guys? I posted about them a few days ago.

I didn’t mentioned that I was still working on two more designs. Well I got them finished and look how cute they turned out.

My middle child got really involved with decorating all the stockings on the fireplaces. We’ve made at least […]


Look What arrived

I’ve got some new DCWV stacks in the house. Check it.


I’ve already put the Le Blanc stack to use in my teacher thank you cards from a couple of days ago. This stack is a mix of beige on white prints and white-on-white emboss-resist prints. So fun to add your own colors […]


Christmas Ornaments

We have a tradition, that was started by my husband’s grandmother, to give christmas ornaments to friends on Thanksgiving. Last year we stamped inked images into sculpy clay rounds.

This time, when I saw Jennifer McGuire’s video on stamping & coloring wood rounds I knew I had to C.A.S.E. this idea. I made a guess […]


Creature craft

My daughter really wanted to buy herself a cute little Pokemon plushie and had a wad of cash in her wallet to do it with. After searching high and low around town we found nothing that interested her. In our internet search we found interesting plushies but the prices made her cringe. So we turned […]


Weekend update #5

I don’t use many coupons, but the ones that I do used are shoved in a wad in the bottom of my purse. This situation has needed some work for a while. So I decided to craft my own coupon holder. It is chipboard front and back (identical) with an open accordion folded cardstock center. […]


Weekend update #4

Okay, I am getting most of the projects done that I had floating around in my brain. I’m thinking I am going to spread these posts out a bit this week so that they don’t get overwhelming. I hope I don’t annoy anyone with over-posting! Here is a quick little project that I wanted to […]


Weekend update #1

I’m going to have a few updates for you this weekend. This first one is a Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger challenge to use the photo above to create some piece of paper goodness. The very first thing that came to my mind was a card. But I decided to think on it a […]


Cupcake saga continues

My latest challenge from The Paper Variety was to make something involving a cupcake. Oh how perfect since I’ve spent the last two weeks in cupcake land. Well I couldn’t just submit the cupcakes that I already made. That wouldn’t be in the spirit of a crafty challenge. I had to figure out how […]


New Video

Hey everyone. I’m happy to report that I finally got to making my second video. I was waiting for a data cable to arrive in the mail so I could switch to using my regular video camera instead of the video feature on my still camera. I was hoping the quality would be better. It […]
