Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Its purpose isn't so much to show off my work, it is more of a way for me to catalog the things I've created. I hope you enjoy peeking at my projects while you are here!

50th Birthday Gag Gift

I have a quick post today. A good family friend of ours had his 50th birthday party and we were told that only gag gifts were allowed. He he he...

We bought a flower pot, some florist's styrofoam, some crinkly paper grass, and a ton of suckers. Here is what it turned out to be.

The sucker at the very top says "50 Sucks!" and there are a total of 50 suckers in the pot. I also made a card to go with it using MTC and the Marker Felt font on my computer. The paper is from my stash. It was an odd size so I had to make an envelope to fit. I made a red one to match the font, but I didn't get a picture. We were in a hurry to get to the party!

He thought it was funny. I'm glad!

Thanks for stopping in.

Summer Crafting Begins! - Boxed Card Set

Hooray for summer! My students got out on the 26th and I only have 1 more week of work until summer break officially begins. Wahoo! I'm so excited to spend time with my son and get some good crafting time in.

At our school we have room moms who help us communicate with the parents and organize events. I had two this year who helped out so much! I wanted to show them my appreciation, so I made them each a boxed card set.

Each box (which I also made) came with five 4 x 4 cards, three stamped "Thank You" and two left plain. The insides of all five are blank. The sunflower is from the Walk in My Garden cart. The twine is from The Twinery. I did a little stitching around the edges with my white gel pen.

I thought it would be so fast and fun to make cute little 4 x 4 cards. That is until I realized that I would have to make cute little envelopes too! LOL! They actually weren't hard to make. I didn't get a picture of them though. Oh, and let me tell you that if you don't have a Marta Stewart scoring board, or something similar with an envelope making piece, you really should get one! I LOVE mine.

Ok...that is all for now! I am hoping I will have many more projects to come this summer!

Thanks for stopping in!
