Updated Crafts

Candy filled "Cake Box" I made for a quick birthday gift for my son's friend. Love the fact that I got to use some of my rubber stamps (from Stamping Up) and the Martha Stewart punch. The cake box was from Tags,Bags, & Boxes.

This is for my daughter's spring choir concert, but I'm not totally happy with it yet. May tweak it later on. Every have one of those ideas from your head that you cannot just get onto paper??

Happy 4th of July!

Trying to save a little money this year, I decieded that I would make my own decorations for the house. I had a bit of a challenge because being crunched for time & money I didn't get a chance to get blue cardstock and I did not have much in stock. Lots of red & white this year. I did score a good find at a store called Dollar Tree. It was a lighted white paper globe that I painted blue & red dots. I will post pics later of those.

And because of the holiday I wanted to say a big "Thank You!" to all our Military Members & Familes. Have a safe & happy 4th of July!!
