Christmas Snowman Card

Christmas Snowman Card
Here is another example of my newest handwriting technique. It takes practice but it's fun to do so hopefully I get better at it! These stickers that I am using are so adorable and I got 6 snowman stickers and 6 penguin stickers for 50 cents so finally a great deal on something so cute. I love deals like this and it's great to do a little crafting shopping after the holidays for all the discounts! I've had to cut back on shopping lately because I've been using a lot of my materials for my Etsy shop that I opened.

Christmas Penguin Card

Christmas Penguin Card
Hello all!

I made this card a few days ago and I think it came out cute! I saw some awesome handwriting techniques on Instagram and thought that I would give it try! It's not perfect but I have become addicted to this technique now. My next few posts will be showing you my work. I also got lucky with the lighting today. Nice and sunny but still cold.

This card wasn't too hard too hard to make. I had to spend a while with the handwriting stuff but the rest was pretty easy.

Simple Christmas Gift Tag

Simple Christmas Gift Tag
Hello all!

Today I would like to show you a very simple Christmas gift tag. Bought a pack of gift tags at Hobby Lobby and used nothing but a pen, string, a flower, and two leaves. It was so easy to make and it looks pretty cute.

My handwriting is not that amazing and lately on Instagram I have been looking at fancy calligraphy and I am so jealous! I wish I had the patience for that. I used to have beautiful handwriting, but not anymore! I think it's because I just do not have the patience.

And, I would like apologize for my photos. They were taken inside and the lighting is just not great. The days are just too dim and my camera does not like that!

BLOGGER Help

BLOGGER HELP!

How come I can't scroll down to see the blogs that I follow? I can't scroll past 1 day posts. I even tried adjusting the screen to make it smaller.

There is also a stupid little Send Feedback button right in front of the bars to scroll down.

I really DO NOT like this new feature. I can barely handle the original stuff, now this!!

Any suggestions, please let me know. It may be SIMPLE or may be STUPID. I don't care, just let me know.

Merry Christmas Card

Merry Christmas Card
Hello all!
Here is an example of a unique Merry Christmas card. I have been sick for a few weeks and was trying out different styles of cards, non-traditional, Christmas cards and I liked this one the best.
I will also share my horrible cards that I made, but I tried. It's hard to have inspiration when you are sick.
 
Please excuse the quality of photos. It was been cold and dim outside so my photos are not bright and crisp like they usually are.

Thanksgiving Cookie Treat

Happy Thanksgiving

Hope all has had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I've been absent from the blogging world for a few weeks due to illness. Everyone in my family got hit with the flu plus more so it's been rough and not fun. We are getting better so that is good. 

I'm quickly posting a little treat I decided to try out. I saw this somewhere on Pininterest. It was pretty fun!

Christmas "Noel" Gift Tag

Christmas "Noel" Gift Tag
Here is an oval Christmas Gift Tag that I recently created. I am not sure if I should make a dozen identical gift tags or if I should make different ones for Christmas. What do you think I should do? Is it better to have unique gift tags or make it equal?
 
This gift was simple to create but I used a special embellishment - mirror words! They don't come cheap, so I have to be careful when I use them, but they are sure beautiful. I took about 12 pictures or more to show you the different angles of the mirrors and how they sparkle in the light. I tried different settings on my camera so that there is a clear shot of the reflection.

Take a look below!
