Happy Tuesday! Christmas is almost here and it's also one of my favorite times of the year...I love the smell of fresh pine and baked cookies. Tomorrow we will go out to a tree farm and cut a nice pinetree. Thursday night after dinner we will decorate it with wonderful ornaments that I'm working on. The colors I have choosen for this year are brown, red, green and rust...

12. Crop a dile


1. Using your crop a dile make two holes on each of the silver trays
2. Ink your doilies using Tim Holtz ink adhere to tray
3. Cut your letters from cardstock and add glitter

4. Once the letters are dry adhere to doilie

5. Add ribbon and make a bow

6. Glue green leaves and flower to the bow

Wire Flower Tutorial

Did you like the flowers I created for the challenge at Let's get Shabby??? well if you did here are the instructions.

What you need:
Floral wire
Glimmer Mist or Alcohol ink
Candle or liquid Fray

Here are the steps:
1. Determine the size of flower you want and figure out how big you want the petals to be. I made mine using around 4" of wire but it's totally up to you. The best thing to do is to play with different sizes.
2. Create a petal using the floral wire.
3. Glue the floral wire to ribbon and let it dry for at least 2 hrs. Make sure the wire is completely glued to the ribbon. After two hours or so cut around the wire.
4. Carefully "run" petals using a candle or use fraying glue.
5. Ink or mist petals with Tattered Angels glitter mist or Tim Holtz ink
6. Gather 2 petals, twist; then gather 3 more twist. Put the two groups together and done!
7. Now for the fun part...embellish you flower(s) with pearls, buttons, glitter or just about anything...

Make Time Stand Still

Oh only if we had the power to stop time...our children would always stay little, we would stay young (hmmm), parents would never part, grandparents would spoil us forever...I told my daghter one day "I don't want you to grow up, I want you to be my little girl forever" so now she goes around telling people that her mom told her she has to stay
