My Christmas Card Tutorial

  I read in an article about an armed forces chaplain being able to have JOY in the midst of hardship and misery, especially during the Christmas season. It just really stuck to me and  I got to thinking about that and how that is so true when you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.  When you know Him and are for Him then even when the future or even today looks bleak you know that you are not alone, that Jesus is there for you and eventually you will go to be with Him. This JOY is not always the smile on your face or the bounce in your step because there is more and that is when the Holy Spirit dwells in us.Read Romans 5: 1-5. So with my Christmas cards I wanted to send the message of that JOY to everyone I know -
This is what I did -  *note - it is hard for me to NOT to evolve my designs, so you will notice throughout that there will be different colors used for the same element and different placement
I made each element of the card first so that I could do an assembly line construction to make it somewhat easier.
With white card stock paper using sentiments from Close to My Heart (CTMH) stamps "Peace On Earth" and the CTMH Tulip stamp pad stamp out the "Christmas" one each for card making ....
....then cut each word out..... and with the Christmas word gently slide the edges along the stamp pad to add color to the edge.  This will make the "Christmas"  *pop* from the card.

For my design I wanted to put the letters of  JOY in a banner  - so I used CTMH stamp set "Evergreen" which happens to be triangle Christmas trees  and using the snowflake tree I stamped out rows and rows of now pennant using CTMH Creme Brulee and Tulip on a shimmering gold card stock paper.

Then using the Fisker paper cutter, cut strips - lining up so that the cut is at the tips of the triangles.

With the Creative Memories paper trimmer it makes it easier to slice out each triangle

Because I was making so many cards,  I stamped on the triangles that were left after cutting  the stamped triangles.
For the letters of  J-O-Y
I used CTMH  "Delightful Alphabet" stamp set - using Tulip on the Creme Brulee pennants and black on Tulip pennants

Stamp the J  and O and Y on each pennant times the number of cards making

I sorted them into little cups to keep them organized...

Using The Crop-o-Dial and the smallest eyelet hole making -
punch a hole in each point at the shortest end of the triangle
I punched several at a time.

Then recruit your spouse and child to cut 8 1/2 " x 10" white or other colored card stock, in this case - pink and red were used too -  in half -horizontal
Using the same recruits have them cut out  4 1/2" x  5" rectangles from patterned Christmas paper - used here are CTMH  "Jingle" paper- which is printed on both sides which gives it more use.
While the recruits are busy with their jobs -
using a strand of thin red or yellow ribbon and a large eyed needle threads some J-O-Y  lettered pennants - start with the Y and so forth - repeat for as many as cards you are doing.

After stringing up some JOY - cut a section of ribbon that would fit on the card- this is where personal preference happens - the banner can be laid as pictured with the pennants close together and the ribbon all the way across and the ends of the ribbon will be tucked behind the patterned paper when it is adhered to the card. Other suggestions could be - the banner placed with a curve with ribbon ends tucked,
the banner at a curve or straight but the ribbons cut short at an angle and stay on the front of card,
or the ribbon ends could have a button to cover them....
After adhering the JOY banner place the "Christmas" word element either above or below the banner.
Adhere the embellished patterned paper to the card front so that it is a top fold.
I used a green stamp pad to stamp the inside sentiment:
Then use glitter glue and highlight or add dots, squiggles or lines to the front of the cards.

The back two cards are made using the same printed paper just different sides - as well as the front set.

This is a small sampling of how different my cards became.

This is a 45 Card Standing Ovation

That was it. I do hope you have enjoyed it.  I would love to see the cards you made or even ones you have received - leave me a link in the comment box and I will check them out! Merry Christmas!

Dough Boy

My 3 1/2 year old son, Garrett decided one day that he wanted to have some play dough  - and I was to make it for him - right then, right now.  Since I had NOTHING else to do I went a searched for a recipe.  My friend, Jennifer had made both boys some Kool-Aid Dough a looooong while ago and I liked how it stayed soft and wasn't slimy and was easy to clean up as far a play dough is concerned.
Here is the recipe I had in my stash -
Kool-Aid Dough
1 C flour
1/4 C salt
2 T cream of tartar
1 pkg unsweetened kool-aid
1 C water
1 T vegetable oil
Put all ingredients in medium sauce pan  - over  medium-high heat
and constantly stirring until it starts to form a ball.
Take out of pan onto counter top - CAUTION IT WILL BE HOT
let cool to touch (it can be warm) and then knead until smooth
Then give to kids and have fun!
I doubled my recipe and used every grain of salt from every salt shaker in the house.  I didn't even have cream of tartar so I used Wilton's Meringue Powder for cake decorating and it turned out fine. I used Cherry Kool-Aid for the dough - at first it was REAL pink and I was thinking "pink for boys?!?" But the more I kneaded it the more it became darker in color.
I really like this dough because I know what it is made from and
I know that it is non-toxic if my kids ever decide to eat it.
My sons like to use my cookie cutters and a plastic knife along with these creature body parts.

This is one of Garrett's creations

A creation made from both boys - Daniel and Garrett

I'm sure I will be making more Kool-Aid Dough in the future -
I will need to stock up on salt and cream of tartar......
What color will your dough be?

ReButtoned Flower Tutorial

Welcome to my first ever tutorial! 
My friend, Cindi, and I came across a bunch of badge buttons that were popular some time ago.  This bunch were mostly promotion type that were of no particular interest to anyone.  She suggested that we take some faux flowers and make a neat hybrid type flower broach.
So to the workshop we went and this is my creation.

The equipment needed are: scissors, pencil or pen, wire snips, hot glue gun and extra glue sticks.

Materials needed are: faux flowers, felt, badge button

Trace the button onto the felt.  The felt will be your base so that the hot glue will stick better to the felt and it will look nicer.

Cut out the circle....

Using the hot glue gun, adhere the felt to the badge button making sure to get full coverage...

....and it will look like this.
*i heart my nails! thanks tabatha of top coat!*

This was a cluster of flowers, sort of like a Hydranga, with glitter on the edges.  I removed the clusters and cut each section apart so that I had single petals. Depending on the flower you are using you will need to make some judgement calls on this step. DO NOT GLUE PETALS YET!

Because you will need to glue on some leaves for accent. 
These particular leaves are a long holly type with a solid coating of microbeads. I placed my leaves so that just a little bit of the leaf will peak out behind the flower.
With the single petals, starting on the outer edge, glue a petal so that the wide end
 of the petal is over the edge a little bit, covering the felt.

This is one round of petals.  Continue until you get the fullness you want,
over lapping the next row of petals over the last.

I was able to get three layers.

Glue in your center.  Here I used a microbeaded berry from the same holly bush.

Lastly, pin your new flower fashion broach onto your lapel and enjoy!
I would love to see your ReButtoned Flower - email pics to

Smoking or Non-Smoking

Bumper Sticker of the Day
Most of us remember back in the 90's when you would go into a resturant and the hostess would ask how many and then, "Smoking or non-smoking?"
Then you would be seated accordingly.  If you chose non-smoking it was fortunate if you were placed at the furthest table away from the smoking section.  The tables next to the smoking section had to experience the second-hand smoke.  The smoke didn't seem to know its boundaries. 
This is actually a license plate frame, however, I have seen it as bumper sticker in the past -
 "Smoking or Non-Smoking ~ Where Will You Spend Eternity?"
Wow!  That should be a wake up call for anybody!  This choice in smoking or non-smoking are real and is everlasting.  The smoking, of course, is referring to Hell.  In the Book of Revelation 20:14-15, it says "Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.  The lake of fire is the second death.  If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." 
Non-smoking is referring to heaven and a life everlasting and eternal life with Jesus Christ, the Father  and the Holy Spirit.  Those of us who have their name written in the Lamb's Book of Life, it is our reservation.  The cost is free.  It has already been paid for by Our Father and His Son. We will even have a new name (Revelation 2:17) and there will be no more sorrow, no more pain.  Who wouldn't want to miss that?

Be My Guest

I was invited to be a guest blogger at my friend, Cindi's blog - Tally's Place - to do a review of our last Saturday craft show.  That post can be read here.  Be sure to leave a comment and let Cindi and I know what your thoughts are.  *hugs*

Happy Birthday Jerry

My little brother, Jerry,  turned 29 years old on November 15, 2009.  It was decided by him that I could treat him to a movie.  So we went and watched the movie "2012".  And if you think that movie is depicting the real end of the earth events - it's not.  But that is for another post.
Any whooooo......
After we came back from the threater we lit the candles and sang a little song to my brother.  My youngest son, Garrett (3) just loves to sing "Happy Birthday" to just about
anybody and he really loves his Uncle Jerry.
Here he is taking all the oxygen from the room

And the lights are out!
Jerry, may God bless you with many more wonderful years following Him!

Veterans Day

Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is usually observed on November 11.  It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the
German signing of the Armistice.)
My veteran left for work today with his dad who also is a veteran and his dad was one as well, but who has long departed from us.  My veteran was in the United States Army,  2nd Armor Division, Hell on Wheels, 17th Engineer Battalion and was with the 1st Calvery division in Operation Desert Storm, that makes him a VFW - Veteran of Foreign War.  He did his basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. (My heart goes out to those who have been affected by the  the recent events there. ) 
Looking back at the pictures of my husband before he went into the Army to those after and I have to say the Army turned my husband into a man.  My husband was brought up to have respect, to work hard and support his family, however the Army had fine tuned those qualities and built up his physic as well.
We were newly married of a couple of years when he went to Saudi Arabi for 8 months and that was the HARDEST time for us both.  I can not imagine how it would be for those who are enlisted now who have done more than one tour in  Iraq.  Regardless of what you believe politically, these men and women need to know they are being supported by YOU.  They are there for YOU and we should not take advantage of that.  Even when these veterans have been discharged from the military and are trying to return to everyday life, we need to be supportive to what they may have experienced. 
I thank you, Veterans of the United States Armed Forces-

The Great Big Bag-A-Holic Swap - My Review

long while back I had came across a blog called Made by Petchy.  Petchy loves vintage fabric, takes beautiful pictures and has a darling three year son and makes her home in Norway.  Oh and she has even posted some yummy recipes on her blog!   Over the summer she hosted  a bag-purse-tote swap called The Great Big Bag-A-Holic Autumn Swap and I couldn't reply fast enough!  I was mixture of emotions - nervous, anxious, and more.....
I had made into the swap and was assigned my partner - June from Mesa, Arizona. I have had wonderful communications with her in the course of this swap.  I had sent June one of my favorite book purses I had already made - "Good Bye My Lady" -it is an eclectic shabby chic style.
When I recieved the package from June,  I was very excited - like a little girl on Christmas morning!  As soon as I was able to remove the tissue I said, "This IS me!"
Hearts!  It has wonderful colored Victorian inspired hearts on a black background with a pink ribbon twirling throughout.  The shape is roomy and stays nicely on my shoulder with easy access to my belongings inside. Thank you, June! 
Who knew that this Great Big Bag-A-Holic Swap would bring me a purse to match my lavender wallet! Thank you, Petchy!

Secret Sister

Part of the Women's Ministry at the church where I attend, we have Secret Sisters. It is like having a Secret Pal or Secret Santa where you give gifts, cards or treats to your "sister" in secret. As the giver you try hard not to be revealed before its time, so you may write in the card with your other hand, sneak it into the church under your jacket, or even incorporate your family members to help in your scheming. This is all done to bless your sister and to show her that your care and she is thought of. I have loved all my sisters I have given to in the past and have become closer to them in the process. My first one was Gail and I had no idea what to get for a lady who lived in a 5th wheel trailer - so the ordinary knick-knack collectibles were out. That took to looking for small and special items- candle, a monogram bookmark, earrings...
In the end she became a very dear friend of mine. Love Ya, Gail.

At this years' revealing I finally got to know who was my Secret Sister - I kind of had a clue - it is hard when you use kids for them to be sneaky and then to be quiet! However, it was a very nice surprise! It is my mom's cousin, Margaret and she really knows me and she spoiled me!
This is the beautiful box she had everything in - I was just tickled with the box!
.....pretty ribbons...pretty paper.....
This is the first peek inside! I see red. I see lady bugs!
I Love lady bugs!

These are soooo adorable!!!! 4 placemats and 4 matching napkins - Very Cute!

At the very bottom of the box is this beautiful doily that she crocheted for little 'ol me.
It is a treasure that I will keep for many, many years.
It is going to be by my other treasured dresser runner in my bedroom.

I am very blessed to have had a Secret Sister like Margaret.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Margaret!!!! *Hugs*
I know I can't wait to Bless the socks off my newest Secret Sister......
Maybe you know someone that needs to be blessed and feel appreciated,
you could become a Secret Sister, friend to her -
It could mean everything to her.
....scatter kindness....
.....gather love.....

Apple Harvest Festival Review

We did it! Cindi (one of my bestest friends - http://www.tallysplace.blogspot.com/) and I had a booth at our local Apple Harvest Festival here in Fortuna. My last post talks more on this subject as well. This was our first time for a lot of firsts - our first time being partners, first time with an outdoor booth and first time being at the festival. During our 8 hour booth time, Cindi and I had plenty of time to review and critique EVERYTHING! I want to share with you what some of them are and welcome any and all constructive criticism - BE NICE! I will start the reviewing in sections -

SET UP - This was actually easy because we did a trial set up in my driveway. My lovely husband, Garry helped cut the lattice to size and put eye screws in the pier blocks ~ Thanks Honey!~ We knew it was going to be windy, Garry suggested we use the pier blocks and ratcheted tie-downs for anchors on the tent. The anchors worked great and were easy to use and it added height to the tent. The lattice in the corner did not do so good. They needed more support because the lattice was vinyl which meant it was very flimsy. Once again hubby came to the rescue with 2"x 2" x 80" to support the sides of the lattice not already zip tied to a tent leg. Overall score- 8 out of 10

BOOTH OVERALL APPEARANCE - This is one of the areas that was in need of help... I think it is setup nicely, good traffic flow for the small area, but is where I think it stops. Garry said that our booth needed to be more full of product and I agree. Because life happens, Cindi was unable to have more of her products there and she was so bummed. Signs. Who we are. What we do. How much? Not there and the one sign in the back was nicely done, which reads: Custom Orders Available on Request, (thanks Ammi ), however without any other signs it was just hanging around.

Overall score: 4 out of 10


I believe Cindi and I did great job in displaying our products even though we lacked signs. We had purses hanging on the lattice and placed on the tables. Cindi's Buttonfly Fairies were on the lattice and then we arranged a pole to go between two tent legs and they were hung from there. They fluttered beautifully in the wind. The tutu's were hung up around the tent area - next time we will use a round clothes rack, space permitting.

I am calling this one "Tiger Fly" - so exotic........... ( made by Cindi)

Our Woodland Fairy Wands grabbed a lot of attention and we had a sign, but no price. After awhile I did make a price tag sign and it helped.

Overall Score: 9 out of 10

After we went home and warmed up, we began to research booth set up and these are some of the results -

In conclusion we now know what we need to do different for our next shows. We will do Apple Harvest Festival again next year with the improvements mentioned above along with -

~booth placement~ we were at the end block and next to a food vendor that "smoked" his meat. When people got off the hay rides, they headed away from us.

~ sides for the booth~ it was so windy during the day we had to keep our products from flying away and we were so drained and our lips very chapped - the wind was very bad and cold.

We are not going to give up. We will continue on and keep learning from our mistakes and kindly take advice from others and listen to wisdom from the wise.
One of Our Next Shows will be Saturday, November 14 at the Veterans' Memorial Building in Fortuna

It's All About The Glitter

This is a preview of the small selection of woodland fairy wands, Cindi and I will have to sell at the Apple Harvest Festival in Fortuna.
These fairy wands are made from blooms of far-away forests and meadows of Make Believe. The ribbons are from the Land of Offray and the Land of Wrights. From the island of Tulle we gathered tufts and the glitter was ever so carefully collected from the rare blooms of the Mettallicallious flowers on the coast of Glitterex. Upon the arrival home each bloom was designed and arranged into the most incredible imaginary Woodland Fairy Wand to be. Guaranteed to bring smiles to the young and old alike and let you fly away to your own Land Of Make Believe.
(Fine Print: Wands May Be Used For Princesses and Queens, too.)

My Favorite Books

I like these books so much I just had to take a picture of them. Notice that there are some with color and some have a simple gilded elegance. As you can see my love of pansies just had to sneak into my pictures!

Wait a minute - these are not books! *lol*

These are my Book Purses! I saw one on a tv program and the challenge was on. I just had to make one and I have had made several since. I had made one for my friend, Cindi, and you can view it at her blog -

A little story about Cindi's purse - At Ruth's Room, Cindi's aunt and sister also volunteer there and they all have been "simplifying" their homes and donations show up at Ruth's Room from them. Well, this pretty little book just caught my eye and I took it home with me. I read the book which was totally a darling and fun book to read. Inside the back cover was their grandmother's name and address. I thought I could give the book back to Cindi and it could just sit on a shelf and collect dust or turn it into something she could use and take the sentimental value with her where ever she goes. I made it into the purse. I kept the insides and made a new simple cover, to keep the book. It turned out so cute!

These five book purses are going to the Apple Harvest Festival to be sold at my and Cindi's booth on October 3 here in Fortuna.

Let me introduce you to them. Each one has their own uniqueness and a definite one-of-a-kind.

The first one with the round handles and white in color is " Seven Days In May". It is made from a older Reader's Digest book with a decorative cover. The inside is white with tiny red flowers scattered throughout with a small side pocket trimmed in red ribbon. It has metal ring handles, elasticized gussets and a matching coin purse.

The next one to it is "Green Darkness" and the picture DOES NOT do this one justice. This book purse is total elegance. It is totally lined in dark green velvet with a faux pearl closure button with green and black crystal beading on the closure loop. And black handles and silver purse feet.

Number Three is the other black book purse pictured alone - "Reluctant Suitor" has a dark blues and greens flower print lining with a metal clasp and a small drawstring coin purse. The decorative flower is made from the same lining material and is detachable.

"Good-Bye My Lady" is the book #4 - this one is a personal favorite- an eclectic shabby chic style. The cover is a pastel pink harlequin print with gold star accents with a burgundy binding. The lining is a small pink stripe and pink flowers material with a small pocket on the side. The closure loops over a big pink faux diamond button set on a black patch of velvet with an accent of pink velvet ribbon with pink flower buttons on it. This one has a matching coin purse with flower button accent on the zipper. The handles are black and long with a twist.

Book Number #5 - "To Catch An Angel" is very unique. The lining is a black velvet and the outside binding is velvet trimmed in a green braid. A basket broach with red and white rhinestone flowers turned clasp accents the design on the book cover. It has a black wooden handles and a small black velvet drawstring coin bag topped off with a glass ladybug bead.
Thank you for taking the time to preview my book purses. If there is a purse that has caught your attention, remember these are for sale. The prices for these purses are $30 each plus the cost of shipping. I will use USPS Priority flat rate shipping and I can accept PayPal. Any additional infomation about any of the book purses are welcomed -
And I truly would love any comments! Have a Blessed Day!
