Christmas Class Goodies

29 Milk Carton boxes

All made by the Silhouette machine

My daughter asked me of course - just today for goodie bags for her entire class by...oh say, just ummm....TOMORROW! With the last minute run arounds among other things I needed to do, I put this together tonight in 1.5 hrs. I actually asked my husband to stuff it after I made the boxes and to stick on the labels for me. Grrr....hopefully her class will like them.
But no matter what, she knows I love her!!

Little C's Challenge PRIZE

It was my first time entering Jen's Little C's Challenge......and I was the winner! Here is what she gave me for my prize =)

This is my last post for now. I posted a few today because I was falling behind. I have a bad bad cold right now so I need to rest.

Winter Card Swap 2008

This was a card swap for a Winter theme. It was coordinated by Sara Burke. Look at all the winterous RAKs I received! I am a little late to post this because my mail is taking a while to get to me. Since I moved, my mail from the old address is being re-routed to my new address.....which is actually my temporary home until we find a house.

Another Birthday RAK

I got this from Michelle over at Mushi's Creative Inspirations! Such a wonderful card with sweet thoughts inside. I especially like the colors she used. Thank you so much, Michelle =)

Getting Organized

I bought the Making Memories carousel organizer and I just love it! I got it 50% off at Joann's. You need to get one of these! It makes your work much easier and convenient. You don't waste so much time finding the one thing you need while you work. AND it makes your work station much cleaner. Wouldn't you say so?



I can't believe the amount of room I had after putting most of my things into the carousel. I was able to move my other things I use most into that area.

Birthday RAK

I received this RAK yesterday all the way from Utah. It was mailed 11/26 and I only got it yesterday. mail is being re-routed since I moved.

Unfortunately there isn't a way of me contacting her but it seems she found my blog. She wrote me a note and said that I am the first one she's giving a birthday RAK to. How special =) Anyway I do love all the fun stuffs she gave. I cannot wait to use them all!!!!!

Look What I Found

I recently was going through my digital camera pics from the past 7 yrs and came across these. Gosh it brought back memories! I almost forgot I made these desserts. I still make the mochiko chicken, but the banana cream and fondant cake, I only made it for that first and last time. I was soooo into baking that I would randomly try things that were hard. I get bored fast so I usually don't make it again because I'm off to making something else. Now I can see why I am the way I am when it comes to cardmaking/scrapbooking. But with cooking foods, I can do them again and again.

Guess what I did while the turkey was cookin'? I finally opened up my slice machine and messed around with it. I'll post later on the stuffs I made. It's being charged at the moment....

Cute Stamp

I just love this stamp from Dandelion Designs. The stamps made by Jean is the cutest!! It makes me want to go to the store and buy MORE. I think you cannot see it too well but the brown cardstock is crimped.

Cricut Wild Card Cartridge

I just got the cartridge yesterday and I wanted to try out a few that looked interesting. When looking at all the designs, I felt overwhelmed. The person (Cecelia Harris) that created the designs for this is VERY talented! She has a great passion for reading and writing. Anyway, if you are at all into cardmaking, I highly suggest you purchase this cartridge.

J*s Knicknacks ~make-it take-it~

I had so much fun at J's Knicknacks make-it take-it class! If you've never been to one of these, I suggest you go! The owners are VERY nice and SWEET =) If only some other stores on the island were as generous in their service.

Jean from Dandelion Designs was there helping/instructing us on this "strawberry" candy cane project. Isn't her stamp the cutest?

FOOD for thought

Pot of spaghetti with italian sausages

Fluffy biscuits with cheese

Crispy layered biscuits

This is a pot of chili

So I was thinking, I only have crafty things in my blog.....but I want to turn it into a variety of things. So here's food I made tonight for dinner. I usually try and make 4-5 dishes for the entire week so I can come home and warm up and rest...or have a drink. But tonight I am getting over a bad sinus infection that I had energy to make only 2 dishes.

I've Got Mail!

Oh I always cannot wait when I order stuffs online. But anyway, I bought these clear stamps just because I thought it was cute. Carriage, castle, and the prince charming frog.
I also bought the vinyl for my silhouette just because it was the last one in stock.

And this bag.....I've been eyeing it out!! This bag too was the last one in stock.
Cannot wait to use it for my make-and-take classes!!

This is one of the newest things from Quickutz. It's for the Silhouette. I wanted this to make stuffs for Christmas presents. These are vinyl adhesive packs that you can cut out xmas dies.
I'll make one and post it later.....

And all these were $1 each!
So I ended up getting (1) of each they had.
I think these will be great for making the holiday cards.
Cookie cutter dies, clear stamps, tags, and envelopes!!
