End of 2010 and a New Beginning

Hi Crafters,
I always look forward to this day and have hope, anticipation, and yearning for the new year!  By the 31st of December I feel like I have run out of gas but for some reason when I wake up the morning of the 1st of the new year I feel re-energized,  like anything is possible!   SO now the cycle begins again and I can't wait to get up tomorrow and start life over again!  A fresh start is how I look at it!  This past year has been awful for my family and for a lot of people and hopefully tomorrow will bring a fresh start and I just wanted to say "thank you" to any and all of you that follow my blog and hope I can show you more of mine and others ideas and talents to make either good times or make bad times go faster!  Having this blog has helped me a great deal this year!  I just wish I knew how to get more craft lover's to check it out!

Bless you, your families and friends and know that God is watching...

Happy Crafting and Happy New Year

Picture Perfect Glass Bulbs

Hi All,
      I didn't get this up in time but here are some pictures of the Glass Ornaments I make every year for my kids with my grandkids pictures in them.  You can hang them on the Christmas Tree or you can buy the little hangers and set them around the house.  I have made them for graduations, Weddings, Anniversaries, etc.  My oldest grandchild is 15 now and I started with these about 10 years ago and I went back and did the ornaments for the previous 5 years so he will have a collection of approximately 18 Glass Picture Perfect Ornaments for his tree when he's old enough to move out on his own.  It's amazing how kids change from year to year and I use there School Pictures after they start school and then they really change from year to year!  Hope you enjoy these.  I do sell them too.  All you have to do is e-mail me the pictures you want in the Ornament.  
     The ornament is approximately 3 1/4", you can pick the color of the ribbon that goes around the ornament and for hanging it.  They also come in individual box's to store them in.  Cost is $9.50 + s/h  each and the more you order the better the discount per ornaments get.

Have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year too, may God bless you in all that you do!
     With warmth in my heart for the spirit of Christmas,
Happy Crafting,

 P.S. These are for friends of mine of there children!

Christmas Cheer is Here!!!!

Hi Crafters,
If you like Blog Candy... you have come to the right place!  Anyone that orders anything from my Stampin' Up website will be getting a free Make-n-Take project  from me.  I will send it directly to your home as soon as your order has been processed! Or you can have one that is already put together.
#1 Calendar Magnet for refrigarator  or    
#2 Calendar Stand-Up for desk
Both of the Calendars are made with 4" x 4" coasters, DS Paper ( you will get a choice of colors to pick from), Ribbon, 15 month Calendar, magnets on back of the one for Refrigerator, holes already punched and DS Paper already cut to size, all you have to do is use adhesive to put together!

Plus when you e-mail me and (sign up as a follower on this site) after you have ordered from my Stampin' Up website, you will be placed in a drawing to win the 'Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower' case Wood  stamp set worth $31.95, this will also be sent to your home directly from me!
I will be having Blog Candy every month for some lucky crafter to win!  Let's go for the gusto and order now and you can have your Make-n-Take and possibly the Stamp Set before Christmas!
And last but not least...  For every order of $25.00 (before tax & shipping) you will receive another Make-n-Take for each.  SO... if you order $75.00 before s/h you will receive 1 Make-n-Take for ordering any amount, then 1 for each $25.00 in product you ordered also!  This means for $75.00 before s/h in product, you can get 4 Make-n-Takes from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Happy Crafting to all,
