Hi Lovely people,

Who knows what Mug Rugs are?  I didn't know until recently.  Was playing around on YouTube and discovered them.  They are actually small placemats, usually 6x10inch in size.   They are used to place your coffee or tea mugs on and maybe a cookie, biscuit or Cell phone .  I fell in love with them after making one for myself.  See below:
 Isn't it cute?  So guess what I did?  You know I usually make Christmas gifts for my Sunday school class each year, so I decided these would be perfect as gifts.  So I made 20 of them!  Each different in some way.
I just love them!

What do you think?  Can't wait to hand them out.  I might add a packet of Cocoa mix or Instant coffee to give with them.

Anyway, thanks for taking a look and as always, I love comments.

A Special Gift

Hi everyone!

How are things going with you all?  I'm blessed.  No major illnesses or catastrophes in my immediate family that I know of, so I'm happy.  Oh, I forgot, there is a little setback in one of my son's life but with prayer I think things will work itself out.

Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner(are we forgetting about Thanksgiving. I've already started making my Christmas cards.  I  can no longer send out store bought Christmas cards.  People expect handmade cards from me at all times.  Does anyone else have that dilemma?

Below is one of my first Christmas card that I will be sending out (I don't know to who yet). I thought this image from QKR-Special delivery was so appropriate for the sentiment.  Tell me what you think!

Materials used:
Sentiment is a Rubber stamp by Stampendous
Design Paper is from My Minds Eye Christmas Pack
Digi stamp by QKR (Special delivery)
Copic Markers
Bazzill card stock for card base
Bow made using WeR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board
Adhesive Cut out borders by K&Company

Tote bag time

Hello fellow crafters,

My interest is turning back into sewing and quilting.  Here are some of the things I have been working on.  Sewing has always been my first love.  Paper crafting fulfills my need for immediate gratification.

This is a Tote Bag.  I think it turned out great! 

Love making this Baby Quilt. (not finished photo) I think I'll be making more!

Halloween - Trick or Treat

Hi everyone,

I can't believe how fast this month has gone.  In a couple of days it will be Halloween and I have not bought one bag of candy yet!  I better hurry up because we had a large crowd of kids last year and I was not prepared.  I like to make cute little treat bags to put their candy in and add a spiritual, inspiring message for the little ones.  No complaints yet!  We should use every opportunity we have to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ (even on Halloween)!

Below is my creation using the Halloween CS Trick or Treat Digi image from Bugaboo.

Here are the materials I used:

Cricut cartridge- Tags, Bags Boxes and more.
Core'dinations Core Color Paper
Martha Stewart Vine Tree Punch
Studio G Epoxy brad
Studio G Rhinestones
Ribbon from my stash
Decorative ribbon-Marshalls quaze
Fiskars paper pleater

 Love you all.  Come back again as often as you like and leave a comment!

Heart Project at 613 Avenue Create

Good morning all!  I am so glad I finished my card early because I was in the bed all day Sunday with a cold.  They say there is a bad bug going around and evidently I and my grandson caught it. (is that correct English?  Should it be me and my grandson? LOL) But it's not going to keep this old lady down for long.  I've got too much to do!  Our theme for this week at 613 Avenue Create was to include a heart in our project.  Check out what I did.  I think I'll give it to my husband for Valentines Day.

Materials used:
Oak Pond digi:  Love
Bazzill card stock
Cricut die cut cartridge's:  Fancy Frames and Gypsy Wanderings
Butterfly from stash
Spellbinders Polka Dot Embossing folder
"Send me some love if you Like!"
