4th Bloggerversary


Happy Saturday!


Well, four years ago today I made my first blog post.  During these past four years, not only have I shared my crafting through my blog, but I have gotten to know so many wonderful and crafty bloggers (around the world!) that I now call my friends.  I have been lucky and have had the pleasure of meeting some of you in person.  Though I haven't met all of you (yet!), I feel I know everyone so well.    


In recognition of my 4th Bloggerversary, I am offering a little blog candy.  As you know, I love creating 3D projects (from both templates and tutorials).  So, one commentor will receive a $5.00 gift certificate to Creations by AR and a $5.00 gift certificate to MTME.  Please leave a comment by midnight on Monday and I will post the winner (chosen by Random.Wolfgang) on Tuesday. 


I wish you a wonderful and crafty weekend!

Christmas Gift Tag Basket


Happy Tuesday!

Today I have another project from the current I4U! Celebrating U! session. Madeline created a tutorial for a basket with pockets for 3x3 notecards and envelopes.. As soon as I saw it, I thought of a Christmas Gift Tag/Wrapping Basket.


I didn't finish all the tags yet, but each pocket will hold 3-4 3x3 gift tags. Inside the basket I put a pair of scissors, a pen, scotch tape, mini bows, and two rolls of curly ribbon.

Supplies used: Old Olive & Real Red CS, Dashing & Misc. DSP, and 5-Petal Flower & Stocking Punches.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cute Bunny Basket


Happy Tuesday!

I meant to post this on Easter, but time just slipped away...

Today I have a project from the current edition of I4U! Celebrating U! This bunny basket is so cute--it is on the coffee table in my living room. I did change it up a bit, i.e., put the sentiment on the ear and added some butterflies. I plan to make a few of these for gifts for next Easter. The box is 3x3x3, so it holds a nice amount of Easter candy.


Thanks for stopping by.
