Just a Quick Hello!

Good Morning!  So did everyone have a wonderful Christmas?  I sure did!  I got all kinds of new goodies!  I'm just dropping in to say a quick hello and share one of my newest additions to my craft room. 


Yep, I was lucky enough to get the new Silhouette Cameo.  I'm hopping to master this baby in the next few months!  I do have the portrait but to be honest I rarely use it.  I hope I didn't make a mistake asking for this rather than the Cricut Explore!  If you have a Cameo and/or Explore what are your thoughts on them?  I'll tell you one of the deciding factors for me was the fact that you have to be connected to the internet to use the Explore.

If I don't see you before New Year Day, have a wonderful, safe, happy NEW YEAR!!!!!

Reindeer Beer

Good Morning!  How have you been?  I know it's been a while but I've been busy with all the Holiday hustle and bustle.  Are you ready for Christmas?  I still have a few last minute things to do, but I'm nearly ready. 

Today, I have a gift that I made for my boss to share.  Of course this isn't my original idea and you can find tons of them online if you look around.  



Are these adorable!  I couldn't resist.  They are super simple to make all you need is bottled beer or rootbeer, some googly eyes, brown chenile stems and red pom poms.  I covered the box with some Christmas paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby and cut the letters with my Cricut Expression, yep I still use it!  I know my words are a bit off but after a few "reindeer beer, he'll forget.  LOL 

Have a wonderful day!

A Christmas Banner of Sorts

Good Morning and Happy Monday!  Can you believe its only 10 days until Christmas!  I know where has the time gone!  

Today I have a different kind of project to share with you.  I made a banner for my 1st grade CCD class.  This will be part of our Church's Christmas decorations.  Each class had to make one.  Our class had to come up with the theme and because they are so young, I cut the images with my cricut.  It was a little difficult painting the banner because it is felt.  We did the best we could with what we had. LOL


 Until next time..........
