Holiday Shadowboxes !

Shadowboxes are so much fun to create .. and the holidays make them even more so !  They started out as plain little wooden boxes and became cute little wintry scenes .  I think they would look adorable just about anywhere you want to add a bit of sparkle and merriment .  They will be in my Etsy shoppe tomorrow night !

I will be making a few other designs as well and they will be added to the shop by next weekend :)

December Daily.... you are going to rock

I have never had much luck at winning it the lottery, the games on the boardwalk where you win the gigantic stuffed animal that you carry around for hours and then can't fit in your car .. you get the picture .  But .. I do always give it a shot if it's something I really want soooooo.. France of Bananafish Studios was doing a little purge of her craft room and she generously filled medium sized priority boxes with BUNCHES of goodness.  There were 4 or 5 giveaways all together and all you had to do was like or comment on the photos , pay the postage for the package which was only $12.50 and she would pick a winner at random.
There were 2 giveaways that I fell in love with .. this December Daily themed one in particular .. and I couldn't believe my eyes the next day when I saw that I had WON !!   Over the moon excited doesn't really cover it... lol.

I received the box a couple days ago and it was super heavy and filled to the top.  I didn't even photograph everything that was included.  Seriously .. a jackpot of Christmas glee.

 The album is above is handmade and all the pages are sewn it .. I think it will make a wonderful album for my DD this year.

                                             So many stamps .. love the trees and the elf legs !!!

I am not sure what I am going to do with this felt but it is the softest felt I have ever ... felt !  The colors are gorgeous .. the photos do not do them justice.

My December Daily will totally rock this year..can't wait to get started !  Be sure to check out Bananafish Studios .. she has alot of great products in her shop !

Workspace Wednesday

I have a couple "Smash" journals that I add stuff to now and then and just wanted to share a few pages with you since I just 'smashed' some cool business cards into it today .
In this particular book I have mostly other artists business cards , Moo cards, tags , etc.  Most of the time I just use washi tape to attach them to the pages since there is usually info or more artwork on the back of the cards.  This way I can remove them without harming the card or the page.

Many of these cards have come from Clover Markets that I have been too .. I just love the imagery , fonts and overall craftiness of these little treasures.

I also keep random bits and pieces of paper that I find in magazines, cafes, etc . If it's cool and funky it will probably end up in here :)

In other fun (and for me quite exciting!) I have sold a few things in my shop . If you haven't checked out my recent update please stop by and maybe you will see something that tickles your whimsy .  I will definitely be adding more things this weekend as well !

It's beginning to look alot like ....

                                                                 Christmas crafting time !!!

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a few short weeks away .. and that Christmas will definitely be here before we know it.  I normally do not start any actual decorating until Thanksgiving weekend but I just can't help but start creating some fun things for the holiday .  The ornaments pictured are for 2 swaps that were hosted in an online group I am in and I love how they came out !   I will be finishing up a few more during this week that I will be putting in my Etsy shop this weekend.

I have quite a few fun decorative items lined up and I hope to have them all in the shop within the next 2 weeks..definitely before Thanksgiving.  There will be some winter scenes under mini cloches , ornaments, matchboxes and some gift tags and suprises too.  I hope you will stop by the shop in the coming weeks and check them out !
