......everything else was just things out of my very own vintage stash...lol...the little tea box holder was actually a valentines box that I painted and covered...it was the perfect size to house tea bags....

I have to say that the foamiron flowers feel so so real when you touch them...I can't believe I am just finding out about this material....

Happy New Years

 Happy New Years from Miss Ava. As some of you don't know, this is our GD. She is just one happy happy little girl. This was her new chair from her GF. Isn't this just the cutest little chair? She loves it...
  here's her tree...I plan on using her art work that she makes at school every year for the decorations. This year was her first year so there weren't many. I'm hoping that they do some sort of photo ornament every year...how cool would that be once she gets older? 

 kicking back ....ohhhh-- the life...lol....

Here's a card I made using the adorable Edwin ... I made the flower out of the Foamiron that you can get from Magnolia-licious. That stuff is addicting to play with. This was only my second flower, but it is some pretty cool stuff. 

 pattern paper from Lemon Craft-- Yuletide

 added a sentiment to the inside with some stamped images....

 here's another card I made using some vintage product...lol...had a lot of fun playing....I have always loved this snowman and finally got around to coloring it up....
 
 inside sentiment...

 here's a just because card....here I used some more foamiron from Magnolia-licious ....used some of those dollar stamps that never seen ink before and added some jingles.....

I really loved this paper from Lemon Craft--daydream....

Well that's all I have for tonight...I wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year....I'll be sharing some pretty exciting news coming up soon......Hugs from a very wet Charm City...

A Bridal Shower Photo Booth

Here's a set up I did for a friends bridal shower. I made all of the paper flowers and photo props. Did the backdrop as well. Not a perfect set up, but I was really pleased with it, for the most part. Sorry for the photos. Ceiling lights at the venue was a killer...

The tux and dress below were gift boxes that I added her gift to them. I made the wedding dress from an inspiration video on you tube...and just kind of winged the tux...


this was the table set up with the photo props on it...










I made this card box using mirrors and rhinestone from the dollar store....




some photos from the party....

Have a great Tuesday....hugs...

Christmas Gift Boxes

So how was your Monday? Mine, was pretty good. The weather here in charm city was a mild day. Not that I spent anytime at all outside, but I did step out for a bit.

Well I have some other projects I thought I would share. They are some Christmas projects I made last year for family and friends. Hope you enjoy!

A gift box. I used SVG Cuts file...

Well how the hell are you Blogland

It's been forever and a day since my last post. Pretty close to 4 years. I know, I know, it's been way to long. I have missed everyone here and have often wondered what everyone has been up to. So, if you're still around, please drop me a simple HI and I'll come visit you and say HI. And then I can see what you have been up to.

I don't even know where to start other than I have some exciting news coming down the pike. But until then, I'll share some projects that I have made over the past year/s just to get my feet wet again with the blogging thing. I'm so out of the loop on this that I need practice again.

Well I hope to hear from everyone. Hope you all have a wonderful evening. Hugs from a chilly Charm City.

 This was an Easter set I made...I know, it Thanksgiving time...sorry...
















                                       This was a birthday set from SVG Cuts files...

                               Below is a bouquet of paper roses...made from SVG Cuts files...

                                            Below are a couple of football Easter boxes....
Well that's it for my first post. I know these are out of season projects, I just thought I'd share what I have made and maybe inspire you to make one for whatever season you're working on. I do have a bunch of Christmas projects coming in the next day or so. So be on the lookout for them.

I can't wait to share my news and I'm happy to be back blogging again.
