Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!  You guys gave me a great gift; I now have 100, no wait, 101 followers!  Thank you for reading and for leaving such lovely comments.  Your support means a lot to me.  I've had some ideas for the blog simmering on my mind's back burner for a little while, so hopefully I'll be able to repay you this coming year!!

Wishing you a happy holiday, and an exciting and creative new year!

Slow your roll December!!!!

Um, how is it already December 18th!?  I wanted to take a quick break from my frantic wrapping to say hello, and I hope all of your holiday preparations are going well!  I'm off to continue wrapping and yes, to frantically craft as well.....

(Inspiration for the snowflake wrapping came from How About Orange)

Craft Collab

This is a craft collaboration I did with a budding artist.  I would describe his style as minimalistic with a penchant for geometric abstraction.  Despite his four years of age, he shows much promise!

Interlocking Photo Display

Like giving photos as gifts?  Finding frames a little boring?  Scrapbooks: done it?  Try making this super fun interlocking photo display instead!!  Inspired by posts from Photojojo and Made By Joel, I made two sets to give two of my best friends (practically sisters) for their birthdays.

Simple Christmas Banner

From this phone picture, the banner doesn't look like much, but I felt the idea was worth sharing.  The four year old boy I'm babysitting is very much into Christmas decorating right now, so I thought a paper banner would be really fun.  I made a diamond template and traced it onto about 16 sheets of plain copy paper (which is what I had on hand at the time).  We colored the diamonds, I cut them out, folded them in half to make the triangles, and then we glued them around some red yarn!  Voila!  We strung them up in a large picture window, so the designs could be admired from inside and outside the house.
