Photoshop and Pink Paisley

On the Pink Paisley blog they have some really sweet vintage style downloadable free Christmas Postcards!! My only problem was not knowing anything about Photoshop!!!! So I asked a good friend for some help!! After getting a short lesson I was able to make my Christmas Postcard, yeah! This year I didn't bother fighting with my dear hubby for a nice family photo to send out to family and friends, I decided to get a digital copy of the kids with Santa and send that instead!

Yesterday I made a nice centerpiece for my mom's Christmas party with some beautiful red and white roses and greenery, including pine, spruce and juniper but I was running late to get over and help make appetizers that I completely forgot to get a pict. until I was back home and ready for bed!

Yesterday I dragged the kids into the city to Buy my Yudu (A present from my dad for Christmas)
They were on sale:) $160 off and a free mesh screen and also there was a coupon for 15% off so I managed to get all the inks and other items needed to start creating!!! yeah! So today after doing more research I decided to give it a go! Went pretty well, learned a few thing and now I have a few more things to research!! I really think this will be a great toy!!! Just need some more practice! I used the Cricut to cut out the snowman on vinyl, layed it on the mesh screen, tapped around the image (so ink only is transfered through image) found a few old shirts to play with, applied ink and set it after letting it dry to touch... Sounds simple enough, but took a while longer than I anticipated!!! I made 5 shirts and this was the best image, ink is still wet in picture giving it a spotting look! Kids think this is GREAT!! I think making my own screen's will turn out better, but they are a lot more time consuming, so they'll have to wait a few more days!! I'm going to make a few company shirts for my Mom and her Hubby as they recently bought a business, hope they like:)

Crepe Flower Ball

So I made one of these crepe flower balls in about two and a half hours! I still need to make a few more, one size smaller and one size larger and also in white! They will end up being decorations in a girlfriends wedding:) Can't wait to have a craft room with a area for shooting shots of my creations!! Found directions for these here http://houseofsmiths.blogspot.com/2010/02/hanging-roses-i-was-browsing-blogs.html
Can't believe how perfectly round she made them!! Guess I need more practice!!

Burlap Pumpkin

It's been driving me nut's that I haven't had time to get crafty lately!!!! So after folding some laundry I did two of these super easy and cute toilet paper pumpkins:) Covered the TP in newspaper, cut out a flat quarter of burlap, wrapped the TP and sprayed with velum adhesive (all I could find in my mess) and sprinkled with glitter! Done in 10 minutes!

Mothers Day Card

My mother kept a garden,

A garden of the heart.

She planted all the good things that gave my life a start.

She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream,

Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.

And when the winds and rains came she protected me enough,

But not too much because she knew I needed to grow strong and tough.

Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong.

Markers for my pathway that will last a life time long.

I am her legacy, and I hope today she feels the love reflected back from me.

I found this beautiful poem in "the Ultimate guide to the perfect Word" What a great book for quotes and poems and titles and such! It on the inside of my card, my mom's a garden so I really thinks she'll love it:)

Mother's Day is almost here!!!

Hello, so this afternoon I need to get my butt in gear and make my Mom her gift, I have my box ready to go. I putt everything in I need to complete one small project, and then go to my embellishment tub for some extra's:) This is to make he her card, then I need to pull out the cricut to cut out some vinyl lettering to make her a flower mailbox to go outside:) Hopefully it works!!! lol
A couple of weeks ago at Micheals I picked up this 12x12 scrapbook container and holder! Love it, and when I got home my hubby asked why I didn't get 2!!! Kicking myself now for not buying 2!!! lol They were a great deal at 50% off!!!
