Sorry that I have not posted lately!   I have really been busy working on LOs, projects, etc. for the Christmas Craft Fair that is coming up Dec 5th!   I really hope that this craft fair has an impact for my biz and for people that would like to see what they can do!  Any who....here are some of the items that have keep me BUSY!

I put this little snowman together (it is supposed to be a napkin holder) so I would have something Christmas to put my catalogs in!  

I made this little 6 x 6 album "Our Christmas Memories"!

"Busted" you all know that someone in your life has been marked!   If your kidos are anything like our son...ya got to have something like this!   LOL!
Someone having a birthday!
Altered clipboard.....I like this one so much!   Might be a keeper!  I already went to our local Thrift Shop and pick up 10 more clipboards!  The owner was nice to go dig in the basement just for me...thanks Vera!

Stick Them Up tag...

I made four of these cute little tags for the craft fair!  We have a lot of police officer in my family and living in the small town that we live in!  So in thinking of my family and others I made this using three free print outs from the net!  I wish that I could have got a better pic so ya can really see all the detail!  

Some new LOs...

with the Christmas Craft Fair coming I have had to really buckle down!  Meaning that I am have been spending from 8am till I go to sleep working in my Scrappy Place!   To be honest I think that I am causing myself to get insomnia (I have even been dreaming of scrappin)!  But here are some of the 2 pagers that I will be selling at the fair!

 All of these LOs are done with "Chronicles" Paper line!  That I had received from my biological mother when she came to visit in September!

 This double LO was made for a seamstress or something!  I have put 8 quilting pins in with this for a neat way that a person can attach pics!

Oh I had so much fun making this 2 pager!  For the romantic traveling couple!   Maybe...just maybe he (or she) will pop the question!   One this LO, I had a little help from my scrappy neighbor - she gave me three necklace charms (in the bottom left corner of the left LO)! 

 We all have family or friends that go on trips.  So I made this set for the pics and letters from your loved ones!  Besides the three mats there is a hidden bouns...on the left page you can tuck the letters in behind the the solid green strip!

Kaiser Craft Penny Royale Paper Set...

Oh scrappers ya got to check this paper set that we have in the store right now!   I totally fell in love with the set before even gettin' it in the mail!

   And come to find out - the embellishments ( like matching rub-ons, chipborad elements etc) come in these really AWESOME storage heavy zip bags!  They are great for acrylic stamp storage, now I really hope that we get the binder that these go in because they are already hole punched for a two ring binder! 

Any who - this is what I have done with the kit...I made a beautiful coasters and hot pad!  They took about 2 days for me to complete, due to I really let the Mod Pogde and Clear coats dry over night!  I had a lot of fun making them and planning on making a few more sets - since I have the craft fair thing coming up in December!

Look what I found... UPDATED!

I am planning on altering this wine box that I found at our local Thift Shop!  Gosh what a find...I am planning on using it for my wooden stamp storage!   I wish that I would have been able to find at least two more!  Any way I have started altering it so I will be up dating this post with the results!  

So glad I got this done!   Makes it easy to take wooden stamps to my crops now!

Christmas Craft Fair...

is coming up on December 5th in our town!   I am so excited this is the first craft fair that I am participating in!   The local lumber yard built a really nice sign for my biz, all I have to do is get it painted!  I have been making cards and pre made LOs to sell!

Here is a set of Valentine's Day Cards.

 Some funky Christmas Cards,

 did someone say "Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree"!

A little vintage, maybe?

 These turned out a little off to me, but that is just fine!

And these Christmas cards are tri-fold!  

I try to make a set when I am making cards!  That way someone can buy just one or a whole set!   I usually ask $2.00 per card or $8.00 to $10.00 per set (depending on how many is in the set, embellishment of cards, etc.).

K- State Homecoming Game and My Son

My DS won four VIP Corporate Tickets to the K-State Homecoming Game!  Thanks to my mom signing him up at the bank!  Out of the state of Kansas, he won!  So we loaded up in the car and headed to Manhattan Kansas.  After a two and half hour drive, trying to stay warm, and 52 thousand people....I took around 187 pics!

   So now I have to figure out which ones to scrap???  I have the paper and embellies already picked out. We had alot of fun at the game  but then when we headed home, we stopped by HOBBY LOBBY!   Ended up spending around $100 on some awesome scrappy Christmas stuff!   Went out to eat at some pizza place, as I was eating I decided to head back to pick up a few more things!   Oh yeah I forgot we also got to stop at Big Lots, so I got a few scrappy things there too!   Now I rambling (of course about my addition), anyway here are a couple of pics from the game!
