Does anyone know why Blogger has chosen not to let us enlarge our pics lately in edit html? I know of several of you that are also having this problem.
Halloween project..AGAIN. Hey it is still a week away...so anywhoooo....I took one of my many barn stars and used it for a template and drew it on to some cardboard (YES ladies save those cereal boxes). I glued two layers of cardboard together so it was thicker. Used the cardboard template for the paper and glued her on. Sanded the edges (I use a cheap nail file) distressed with inks (Had several of you ask what type of inks I use, I like Tim Holtz Airiondack inks). Added some fun embellies. See the cute witch ticket? Love those! I hung it here in "my room"...oy what a mess. Hope your Friday night is rockin! Thanks sooo much for actually reading about me...and saying it was interesting. You guys are the best. Warm fuzzies! Hugs, cherry
aww, thats really cute, I likie!! Im not creative at all, but I would like to be... Your blog is creatiive, I jjust love the header, very cute!! Leah
Well...now the night is rockin' cuz I got my Cherry fix! This original creation is out of control cute!! Thanks for giving the particulars on how you created it. : )
Alright that is just too freaking cute!!! I love it! Seriously where do you find the time, and if you have extra can I borrow some? :)
Way cute! I love what you come up with! Cereal boxes...who woulda thought??
Another fabulously CUTE project!!!! LOVE that!!!
PS...I gave up on blogger to upload pics a long time ago. I like large pictures, so I upload everything through Flickr and then copy and paste the HTML code of the proper size photo.....give me a shout if you want more info...my email is attached to my profile!
Have a great weekend!
Lovin' this idea - and what genius to use two layers of cardboard! I'm thinking that doing the same idea for Christmas would be super cute too!
Your star is so cute...I know blogger has lost its mind...or at least trying to have us lose ours!
That is just too cute! I love it...so creative!
Cherry, It is really nice! I never thought of using the barn star as a template...you and your clever ideas!
And, by all means, post something about the Gooseberry Patch freebies!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Cherry!!!! I had an idea for you...by the way love the new project! I think you need to make a box with some type of cherry design on it~like a signature box. So many of us, yes I must confess, love your blog! So...why not design a lovely box like the ones you have made, but with cherry papers, something adorable on top...vintage cherry postcard or something? Just an idea, but I think they would sell like hotcakes! Also...with Christmas, cherries are red and green, you could go Holiday or everyday! WooHooo I love your projects and look forward to many more~especially over the holidays!
SO adorable. I just keep lovin' your projects!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
Oh, how brillant you are!
I am SO totally gonna steal this idea!
Your star is mighty cute!
Wonder what you gonna come up with next......
Thanks for visiting my page. I love your page and all your decorating ideas. Very nice!
That was really a cool craft... You are so incredibly talented with this stuff... Can hardly wait to see your Christmas crafts... Lovin them...
Very cute! I'm going to save my Cherrios box now and try it too! Thanks for the idea!
I am a star fanatic... this is adorable!
You always make something cute...you're amazing!
I would have never thought to just make my own! Love how you fancied it up:)
Oh I love, love, love it. I'm going to go get my stuff together right now to make a couple. My daughters need teacher gifts for their kids and these will be puuuurfect! Thanks for sharing. Janis
How very cute! I love this project. You do such amazing work!
Pretty, pretty. Your stuff is like magic!
How great! I love your creativity. If I had a pinkie nail full of the creativity that you have...wow...I'd be so happy! Great job!
I LOVE THAT! I want to make one! Great work...always.
Those are great!!
Love the little witch!!
Great idea to use the cardboard! Why not? I might have to steal that idea, it is so cute and so financially savvy! :)
You have great stuff because your imagination is boundless! Keep it coming!
What a cute project. Love it! I especially love that you reused cardboard.
I just love how your Halloween star turned out...too cute!
Wicked Good Star! At least you have been productive while you kept us waiting...LOL
This is perhaps the cutest star I have ever seen. I love it! You did GOOD! Have a wonderful evening.

As always...I am blown away by your latest halloween project!! Thanks for letting us in on how you designed this. I will put a "It's a wonderful life pendant on ETSY for you tomorrow. Would you like a damask black/white background or black/white music notes??? Something else?? Just let me know. The Saint Nick paper is from K & Company. I bought it last year... I love it!!!! I had a little left over.
Where do you get so many adorable, origional ideas?? Love it,...so cute!

Hi there! I love your little craft~ I love everything you come up with! I wanted to let you know also that I played copycat! I was inspired by you to do a banner, and it is my latest post (10/26).
Have a great night! :)
Another darling project. How do you do it? Mimi
A star! What a surprise! This is really a great piece.
I love this! Your blog is adorable. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment!
My daughter from Just a Girl sent me over to visit you. Wow you have some really nice ideas. What a creative woman you are. I love the pumpkins and berries in a trouth behind your kitchen faucet. All your ideas are really good. Listed you as a fave!
OH CHERRY !! too too wonderful - I love this creation , and am truly in love with stars - you can sdo so many things -- Oh thought i was through with halloween , but yikes this makes me drool -- KAthy - GA
What a cute star! I love that idea!
Wow those are just adorable! You are so creative! Cereal boxes glued together! I LOVE THAT! You could even make some for Christmas! Ohhh I must make some.
what a cute little project! I am going to have to do that!
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. They meant a lot to me.
I love your blog! The whole design is initially so appealing, but then I got swept in by all your darling crafts. You are so creative! Can't wait to check out your Etsy store.
Hi again Cherry~
I have never heard of the Xyron (sp?) adhesive machine before; what does it do exactly? I just used a glue stick and also normal white glue for mine. (The letters that aren't adhesive don't stick as well with the glue stick, but normal Elmer's glue worked.) There is so much out there I never knew existed! :)
You've got such a cute blog spot!
I think this idea could be applied to Christmas by using the same star and swapping out Halloween embellies to Christmas. What do you think?
Thanks for sharing.
If you get a chance stop by my blog you have been Boo-ed!!! ♥
This is another wonderful project from one of the most creative ladies in the world! I love this!
OMG I am so glad you left me that comment, for sometimes I feel like I do nothing but read! I have neglected my family, my housework and I couldn't wait for my husband to take his business trip so I could read to my heart's content (of course as soon as I finished the first book I was ready for him to come home). I am frantically searching for someone I know who has read these books so I will have a buddy to go to the theater with when the movie comes out. Wish me luck my friend! I love all of your decor by the way! Smiles, Paula
I love it...just love that look! Plus making it yourself is the best! You go.
What a darlin' idea! I never thought about my cereal boxes that way - how clever. You are one creative chic!
Congrats on your store - I bet you'll sell out in a jiffy - 'cause it is all just too darn cute!!! Have a blessed week! Cathy
Cherry, I always love seeing your projects!! I wish I had an OUNCE of your creativity for crafts!!! You are an inspiration! As for posting pictures, I haven't a clue. I need YOUR help, I can't even put pics between the text of my posts. I'm blonde though, LOL :)
I love those Halloween stars..very vintage looking! You have a darling blog! I am glad that I stopped by!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Thought I'd come and return the visit. LOVE your blog, too! Love the Halloween stars you made. I'm adding you to my reads.
so creative! You rock. Do you sleep?
Love it Cherry!!!!
Hello!! I put your cute necklaces in the mail yesterday. I can't wait for you to see them!! I loved making them for you. The store is in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It is absolute heaven!! I love it!! The pictures do not do it a bit of justice. I actually sent the owner a crystal necklace today. One just like yours.... who knows, maybe she might carry them one day. It never hurts to dream right?? Have a blessed night my friend. Leslie
I've visited your site before--lots of great stuff. I feel honored for the visit and the sweet comment. Have a great week!
That is super cute. Everything you have done lately is super cute.
You asked if I have broken out my Martha glitter......I have!! I bought some dollar frames for some gift certificates we had for a silent auction basket. I glittered one of them and added curly ribbon and small balloons (it was for a free Gymnastics party at the YMCA). It came out really cute! Love me some glitter.
I am really going to miss all of this super fun Halloween decor! Friday is coming too fast! I had to pop in and let you know that I LOVE the Method wood cleaner. It is simply a must have and I may dedicate an entire post to it. Ha! Ha! It smells like almond - need I say more? And it is like it repells the dust. I am in love! :o)
Love Love Love your new little Halloween creation! I enjoy visiting different blogs like yours and seeing Halloween things!
Thank you for your sweet comments - if you do the glass charms let me know! :)
I usually just make my pictures big enough to fit within my content area and if I want them to see a larger version I just provide a link to the larger version in my post.
I love this idea...it is so creative, and I love the fact that it is made, in part by cereal boxes, scrapbook paper (which we all have too much of...lol) and a few embelishments. Seeing how this is Halloween night, I am going to save this idea and copy-cat you for Christmas!! Just need to change the paper but keep the star!!
You are one talented lady!! I've tagged you on my blog.
Great idea,I can see changing this in to a xmas one to. Hope you had a great Halloween.
Hi Cherry :)
