Back to scheduler.. Thats right. I haven't fell of the face of the earth... my scheduler has just failed to post any of my auto pilot post AND... They've gone missing too. ) = I guess I'll try to do a quick recap for you.
My December has been "busier than a one-legged man at a butt kickin contest!" (Ok ok.. I know.. I'll stop now.)
I was excited to hear that my Eco Chic Paper Ornaments were featured in an Etsy treasury titled "Christmas in Dixie." The ornaments were a huge hit this year. Unique, but charming.
I have several different sizes, themes, and variations of these available for sell in my Etsy shop... Not sure if anyone is interested now that the holidays are over... ( Stupid Scheduler! lol)
You also never got to see this years Christmas tree. We are in a bit of cramped quarters this year (My home temperately became a multi family household last August), but we have made the best of it with our Christmas decorations. Yes- My tree is on top of a coffee table. But it was last year too! It's all in efforts to keep our little shih tzu from having a field day with our ornaments. ( =

I made lots of cool stuff around Christmas time including a ton of sports themed items. I am honored nearly every special occasion when one of my Etsy clients !who is a HUGE PATRIOTS FAN! ask me to create a surprise gift basket for her. Here are some of the things I made for her: If you see something you like... remember... I can use any theme or fabric that you like. ( =

to match a Pat's gift basket.
I've been eyeballing all the awesome travel mugs on Etsy, and decided it was time to give it a try. I found the mug in the Christmas isle with a general winter themed paper inside. I used the paper as a template to create a fabric cozy to fit inside the cup. I really liked how this one turned out and went to buy some more... but have been unable to find them at a reasonable price since Christmas housewares have been replaced with Valentines Day goodies. I was a bit suprised to see Valentines day stuff the day after Christmas. Were you guys really shopping for Valentines Day stuff that early? I guess I'm always running late on everything, but I don't know that I even own any Valentines Day decor... um.. sounds like a good reason to craft! ( =
|Here's another something that I altered from the Christmas aisle... Tile coasters. I printed the images on thick textured card stock, and then sealed the tiles with modge podge and diamond glaze.|
|I finally tried my hand at Crayon Rolls. They ARE easy! I used this tutorial. (Except I used extra thick interfacing that helps these keep their shape. These are now available for custom order in my Etsy shop HERE.|
