A few more things…

These are the cute little tags that are going on my sparkling cider for my neighbor gifts today! The top pic is the picture of the back. Just a couple of little stamps from Stampin-Up (Tags til Christmas) and some Bazill cardstock cut in a Sizzix Big Shot with the die “Tags, Scallop Combo #2” and adhered using a Xyron sticker maker. Love that little thing! Then, I just used a Martha Stewart fine tip glue pen on the places I wanted glitter and then used some of Martha Stewart glitter! My husband says glitter is herpes of the craft world because once you use it it never goes away. He does kind of have a point! 🙂

These are my letters that are finally finished this morning. 8 sets of these found new homes, and I am glad to be done cutting them. 🙂 However, I especially love the glass glitter on the “o”. Everything needs a little bling!

Crafts I’ve been working on…

Just finished this cute green and cream scarf for my sister for part of her birthday present. My daughters and I decided the green color is just so vibrant. Love it so much! Unfortunately, the hat is not finished yet. I am still working on it, so it will have to get sent later. Sorry, Afton.

These NOEL letters I just love. This particular set is going to Sandy to live with my sister-in-law, Nyla. We copied them out of a pic in Pottery Barn catalog, (they were not for sale, they were a prop in a pic), & had a girls night with all the Power side girls, along with a fun friend who came to do glitter toes! It was an evening to remember. And out of it all, we took home a fun, easy decoration.

This is actually 1 of 4 aprons of this kind I am in the process of making. This particular one is popping into the mail to go live in Portland with my sister for the holidays (& forever). Hope she likes it! I picked up the fabric in Salt Lake in October and when I got home, went to my local store to get a little more so I could make a few more aprons but they were sold out! Sad! Glad I got it when I did! Thanks, Nyla, for taking me with you to the quilt shop! Yours is also coming tomorrow!

Nativity Book

This is a book I have been thinking about for several years now, and truthfully, wasn’t quite sure how I was going to do it. I have been very frustrated with reading the scriptures on Christmas Eve, because I wanted to do the Nativity, but nobody wants to wait while you find it and also while you flip back and forth between Luke and Matthew. My kids are getting older and they don’t want to dress up anymore, either. A friend of mine, Caroline, (her blog is ) who does some amazing books, had the idea to use canvases for the front and back cover, so that is what you see here. The interior pages are simply chipboard covered in cardstock on each side. The binding is accordian style and glued in place. It is a very sturdy book, and we actually used it on Christmas Eve to read the Nativity from. The scriptures are copied right off the online scriptures of the King James version of the Bible off of In addition to that, there is info. on the wise men, the magi, angels, and all the names that Christ goes by with scripture references, as well as some other interesting details. It really is a keepsake. I am thinking about making it for gifts for my family next year. We will see how energetic I am feeling.
