2012 Is almost here! Wishing everyone a safe and happy year!
This is my Ren and Stimpy experiment!  This experiment is not as clear as I'd like it to be. I now have bugs, daffy, foghorn leg horn; the Marvin the martian , Selvester and Mickey of course! And I have the know how and the ability to do any character, animal, plant, word or anything else you can think of,  thanks(big thanks!) to my friend that brought me some sample papers to print on! Now if I could only perfect the blog I'd be laughing!

Hello Kitty would be great for a girls b-day! On chains or magnets.  I am sourcing magnets now if anyone has any ideas..looking for the very thin silver ones.

Horses and cats next, but the dogs turned out great! It is just glare from the light on the black lab. Should retake really.


There we go! Better picture of the lab, what a beauty she/he is!

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!Need a little something more?I can now make a chain, 18 in.(i can so make 16 or 20in if needed),  they do  give the charms a different look!  I am selling the charms on chains for $8. and 2 for $15. I will packaged and decorated in either box or heart shape container, of course its included in the price!

These are containers that I can package them them in. The packaging is decorated according to the theme or color of the charm.

Here are some of the charms and the packaging I have decided on.

I am looking into chains, the ball type, as some of these charms are not suited for rope/hemp ties. Could try ribbon too?

I am also thinking of sets of magnets (3 or 4) in one of these containers.  I think they would be a good stocking stuffer.  

Some final touches on sticky note pad books

Wanted to bring these to the forefront, as I am selling them for $6.50 or 2 for $12.00! I can do almost any image as long as I (or you) can find it and print a decent copy! Hemp cording comes in black or natural and silver beal on the back, which would look great on a silver chain too. Can be made into magnets of course, as shown on an earlier post. They do look nicer in person, trust me I love them!

These tags are recycled from french cards I " upcycled"! SOOO cute!

Here are a couplke that have that non traditional colors on them.

Good old green and red traditional tags.

I am so excited, I finally got the supplies from the U.S. to make these! I have done the magnets, shown earlier, but wanted to make them into necklaces. So here are the first two I made. They have ss beils, so would look nice on silver chain, but I am selling them with hemp cording(black and natural colour). I can make just about and picture, if I can find it, so if your needing a little something..$6.50 is what I am charging form them! Or 2 for $12.00.  They do look nicer in person! I love them! Call me! Of course we still have time before Xmas!

Here is the first 6 pack of Christmas cards I made last week.  Trying to do different themes and matching papers. Penguins and polar bears and different dogs will have their own sets, but these little animals didn't start off Christmassy and I wanted to see if I could do something with them. What do you think? Comments please!

ooppsy something is not right here!

Christmas Cookies and a few new cards/craft

So today I decided to try some new cookie recipes for Christmas givings. I tried a new recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They turned out better than expected since I, for once, left 2 inches in between them on the cookie sheet. They actually turned out round instead of my usual square cut cookies! Yumm! looks as good as they taste this time!
Then I tried my version of a Snap, Crackle and Pop, a no bake cookie I found. This is a Rice Crispie and peanut butter ball, cooled , then dipped in chocolate. My version was 1/2 peanut butter and 1/2 Nutella and Special K(that's what I had )! It was more time consuming than a baked cookie, but they are pretty good. And lastly, a meringues, which I have always loved to make, but can never find the last recipe I used to make them, so I seem to be trying new ones every year! This year I did lemon meringues. I was curious to try them and thought at the end of mixing they might be to lemony so I added a few chocolate chips to the mix  (not a lot). They turned out well also. So good day of baking but these aren't your cute little Christmas cookies that you 'HAVE TO MAKE' every year, like sugar cookies in tree and bell shapes, so that's another day. These will be 'filler' cookies...the kind that you put on the plate to round it off, making it look your the star of the kitchen! I try to sneak in a couple new cookies every year to add some spark to the old favorites.
Here are a few more cards and crafts from last week. I have started the Christmas cards so pics soon to come!

These are desk calenders I made last week. They are about 4 by 7 inches, but the calendar itself, is quite small.

I love how this turned out! This is not my idea,  and I must say what a clever idea it is. I have one of those little flameless candle lights in a wine glass and the shade I made, on top of it . It really looks cute, turned on. I could see a really nice table set up with a few of these  or just as a fancy little night light!

HELP! Having trouble with captions for the three cards!

Oh no another frog!

Here is another smash book. I made this one for some one who lives on the beach and has a dog just like this one on the cover! You know who you are, but act surprised at Christmas anyways ok?
Money or gift card holders.

And just a few more for today!

Remind me that trying to take pictures of two cards at one time  works only when you stand them up porperly!

Summerery cards (made in August this year.)

These are cards made in September (2011).

Hard to see caption but it"thinking of you and smiling!

Here's a couple more August cards, can you tell?

This a tiny card, I made 6 matching types with envelops. (2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.)
