Crafty Projects!

Well some people on facebook are trying to stress me out. They have put up their Christmas decorations and even started their Christmas Shopping. A couple people have even started counting down. Now because of all this madness. I've found myself doing Christmas projects with the girls. The problem is that I normally don't start anything until after Thanksgiving. I have my turkey then I start to think about Christmas.

The projects I've done are pretty fun and family friendly. We either do them together or the girls pick out the designs.

One of the easiest things we've done is make refrigerator magnets. I went to M's and bought little round magnets. We then glued them to different embellishments. The girls had a blast and we ran out of magnets in a matter of minutes. My favorites are the ones we glued to Sassafrass felties. These magnets will make great little Xmas presents for family members (except that apple is staying on my fridge).

Also we've been doing some chemical glass etching. I'm so in love with this technique. It's so easy and fun. There are tons of tutorials online.

Lastly here's a little project I made for Lexi. She's getting this for Xmas. :) I just hope she likes it.
I hope you all can get crafty soon. Also, have a fabulous Thanksgiving! :)

Really...since June!

Really has it been that long since I've made a blog post. Geez let me blow the dust off.

Well we've had a super busy summer and fall. I've barely had time to scrap or think. I've been working full time since July 1st and coaching cheerleading this year. Let me tell ya...coaching is like a second job! I love it though...I love be able to do an activity with my kids. I think it's important to be active in their matter how silly I look. LOL

Sunday was the first day in a very long time I had NO plans. I didn't HAVE to go was a fabulous experience. So I stayed home and I scrapped. I blew the dust off my desk and I went to work. Here's what I did:

I did the All-Stars layout for a challenge on ScrapJazz. It was a recipe challenge. Use a stamp, letter stickers and only cardstock. No pattern paper.

I hope that you all have been well! I'll be back soon..because someone sent me mojo. :)
