this makes three days in a row, we are on a roll.I thought I would share with you tonight the tree I have in my office at work that I decorated with the snowflakes from the Cricut cartridge "When Its Cold Outside". These snowflakes are beautiful and very intricately designed. I must admit it did take a little figuring out to get them to cut nicely. But it certainly was worth the effort. I will be undecorating my tree either tomorrow or Monday and my sister is going to be the recipient of all these snowflakes. Next year I am sure there will be something else I will want to do to this tree.
Well its off to plan projects for the classes on Saturday, January 9th, 2010. Check back tomorrow hopefully I will have something new to show you. Have a great evening. Bev

I thought I would share with you tonight the Cricut houses I made this year for above my mantle downstairs. They are really cute, although I am giving them to Jill, I feel they are too small and they get lost above the mantle. So next year I am planning on making some bigger ones. The possiblities are endless with these houses you can make them to suit any holiday or season. I added some glitter, stamping, flower soft, and for the church windows, to make them look like stained glass, I used alcohol inks on embossing metal. Loved the look that gave me. I didn't get the trees or the snowmen made so this scene is really lacking. I ran out of time, better get busy sooner next year. When I was at a craft show this fall I remember seeing some figurines that someone had made from polymer clay. I am thinking I will look for them next year and purchase a couple to go with my village. Enjoy! Bev

but here we go again. Are you taking bets on how long it will last.
I thought I would share with you all tonight my 2009 Christmas Card
.At the last two conventions I attended in Ohio I had been eyeing the Copic markers.....well needless to say it doesn't take much to convince me I needed them, so last fall I did purchase two sets. This is my first project with them. I just love the way they blend. If you don't know about these markers I can tell you a little. They are alcohol based markers that are refillable and also you can purchase new nibs for them. There are many places on the web that you can get more info about them, I have totally fallen in love with them. They are so easy to use and they truly keep their color. Love em!!! I still love my watercolor markers, but these will do so much more for me. Now I am all into purchasing white, or any neutral color of brads, bling, ribbon, any embellishments and then just color them with the copics. Perfect color coordination every time.
If you haven't heard the news yet, classes are now being held on the second Saturday of every month starting in January. You will have the option of coming that day for 1,2,or 3 classes. The first one will begin at 10:00 am and then the next two will follow directly after the completion of the first. You will need to sign up for each class, sorry I only have room for 8 -10 people. I am planning on having the project available for you to view a week before class on this blog. Remember you can follow this blog by signing up with the link on the right. Hope to see you at class.
