More Bulbs

I finished this today! There are a ton of the unbreakable bulbs on this...good thing they are way cheap. Started with a styrofoam cone and planter. Painted the cone dark brown and then hot glued the bulbs on. Diana

Bulbs Galore!!!

Best part of this project? The bulbs are unbreakable.


Baptism Candy Bar

A few weeks ago, I went to Haleigh Hansen's Baptism and made this for her. She is 8 years old and a sweetie. Diana

Christmas Cards

Just a quick post to show what I have been up to lately. Christmas Cards!!!! This first one is using a huge stamp and some ornaments. Lots of inking to soften the edges. This one is an aged and retouched photo of our house from last year.
New cartridge called A Child's Year.
This one was the hardest and funniest. I used DS to weld, flip and layer the penquins. Also a little puffy paint for the eyes and hat's pom poms.
Check out all the layers.

Manicure in a Can

Abby's little friend had a b-day party this weekend so I was on a mission to find a 'no sharp edges' can opener so I could make this.

For The Teacher

At Parent-Teacher Conference Eli's teacher mentioned she needed some spinners for reading comprehension. I should have kept my mouth shut, instead, I spent almost two days making these. I am sure she didn't have anything this elaborate in mind...especially since the first graders won't even care! I hope Mrs. S remembers all the time they took me when report card time comes around!

To make the block I spray painted childrens' wooden blocks black and glued on paper using the permanent sticker maker. I then distressed and filed the paper and added the circles with the comprehension questions. I finished them with a coat of poly spray to protect and seal them.

The spinners are laminated scrapbooking paper with a decorative paperclip attached with a brad.
