Now I have a lot to share and type...so you are forwarn here! I got the loveliest surprise from
http://theblessednest.blogspot.com/!!!!!! Stacey sent me an old Cherry flashcard! I love it Stacey! Thank-you so much...and my husband thanks you....rofl...I think he lost some hearing yesterday when I screamed with delight. I was lucky enough to win a few blog give-aways as of late and wanted to share them with you. I won a fun family vinyl decal from Carmen at http://callmethrifty.blogspot.com/ as you can see she also sent a long some beautiful Thanksgiving vintage type images..that I will def. be using in my crafts and a lovely home-made card. Thanks Carmen! Than as if that was not enough...Vanessa from http://www.vanessavalencia.com/afancifultwistblog.html sent me this sweet holiday house that I can't wait to frou frou up! I also was a proud recepient of a few of her gorgeous cards she makes herself....thank-you soooo much Vanessa! It has been like an early Christmas around here! I have been one spoiled little wench folks!
I wanted to also share a few of my projects...I made these "HOME" tags last night and set them in some old frogs. I think since I have been spending so much time at home....you spend less money that way...that word came to mind. Now if you know me in real life you would know that I can be a bit of a candle snob.....BUT.....I can't declare that anymore! I have fallen in love with a 2.00 little winner...made by............clearing of throat.....AGHAST....GLADE. YES>>> dear ones...I said it... GLADE. If I lose a few readers with those words..I will understand. Their fresh linen....smells I swear to the heavens just like Yankee's clean linen......I. KID. YOU. NOT. They also claim they have real bonafide essential oils....anywhoooo.....I have bought two and they smell great. Soooo I took off the GLADE label and made my own. Just wrapped old vintage sheet music around them and tied some jute and a pharmacy label around it. Now I can't stop there...I am on a roll....as I was about to recycle the packaging that the vinyl words came in...I had an Arsenio Hall moment........HMMMMM. So instead of recycling it I thought this could be SUMPTIN> I covered it with papers and changed out the ribbons and added and tweaked...and when Christmas gets closer I will put some greenery in it and hang it from a door knob. Now the box I got second hand a few weeks back. I was attracted to the metal knob and the little metal tab..and heck people I have a weakness for boxes anyways. The top just was not doin anything for me so I cut some fabric and covered it up and stamped photos and added it to the tab and the rest is history. Ohhh almost forgot...the pumpkin is made from paper as well. Cut in equal length strips. A hole in made on both ends and you pull ribbon through to make the shape. I actually won that from a Stampen Up party a few weeks back...very easy to make...I have the directions if anyone is interested. That is it for me...sorry soooooo stinkin lengthy. cherry
