Fun homemade gifts to give this Christmas..

I love giving homemade gifts, that is when I have time to make them. This year, just like others past is another busy one. Not much time to make as many fun things, but these are just a few of the fun stuff I have had a chance to make for Christmas this year!
Vic, (my husband) & I have had a hard time trying to come up with something to give our friends & neighbors, & of course at the last minute we found this cute little thing about "nuts". Vic just wanted to give the bags of peanuts, but I can't do that when I know I can spice it up some way! So after trying several things out, I came up with this box! It was fun to do & fit the whole bag of nuts in it too.
My last picture is of a Christmas table runner I made. I love making these when I have time, they are so much fun! The picture is kind of dark, but I hope you can see it well enough.
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, & a safe & Happy New Year!

Fall Milk Carton

I have been wanting to try out these milk cartons in other decorations other than the Christmas one I have been teaching at my workshops. I had this vision of one in my head & couldn't wait to get it on paper. It turned out so much better than I thought it would! It is by far one of my favorites!
Ponderosa Pine Cardstock
Barn Red Cardstock
Autumn Terra Cotta Cardstock
Bamboo Cardstock
D1371 Many Thanks stamp set
Natural Hemp
Colonial White Organdy Ribbon with Satin Edges

I think it would make an adorable center piece at Thanksgiving dinner!
Hope you enjoy!

November Stamp Of The Month-Around the Block

So I thought this would be an interesting way to show off the 2009 November SOTM. I got this idea from my sister-n-law Sallie. (thanks Sallie!) I was having a hard time thinking of what I was going to come up with, & she mentioned it would be a cute haunted house. So I played around with it & came up with this. I hate to use another stamp set when I am trying to show off the SOTM, but I had to use another one to help this look so spooky. I used the stamp set Spellbound. I like how it turned out, but unfortunately you can't see all the detail on here. Once I used this set, I did have fun with it, & think you could make a cute gingerbread house with it too. Thanks for looking!

You're a hoot!

My son, Colton & his class was learning about "Owl's" today at preschool, & Close To My Heart has the cutest owl stamps, I have been just itching to use! So I decided at the last moment this morning to make all his classmates a cute little bookmark with one of the cute little owls on it! I love putting the googly eyes on the owls to give them even more character! Just thought I would share! They really are cuter in person though! :)

School Receptionist Gift

These two mini backpacks I made up quickly (as you can tell) to give the 2 awesome receptionist at Hunter & Chase's school. Last week, when I got my wisdom teeth out, my mom took Chase to school. It was early out Wednesday & instead of going to school at 12:20, Chase needed to be to school at 11:55. My mom still got the time wrong & dropped Chase off to school at 11:20! So, here was Chase at school more than a half hour early & so they kept him at the office, sat him down, got him some lunch from the cafeteria & entertained him till his class started! I thought I would make them something fun as a Huge Thanks from me that they took such great care of him! I filled them with yummy chocolate of course! I got the cute school paper & ribbon at JoAnns, & the buttons are from Close To My Heart.
