Hello Friends!

Just wanted to pop on here and share some of my latest projects.  I made a few cards and am working on some things for a Valentine's Day Swap.  I will share more about that later.  Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! Lori

December Project Shares

I hope you all are having a fabulous December!  Christmas Eve is tomorrow and time seems to be flying by me!  We had our craft show at the end of last month and it went really well.  I love doing them and my kids always enjoy it too.  It's always a blessing to have my kids there with me and my husband even helps out for one of the days so we have a great family time together.

I also wanted to share some of the other projects I've worked on during this month.  I made lots of Christmas ornaments and some Christmas tags which was a lot of fun.  The pillow at the top was made using a tutorial on YouTube.  If your interested in doing one too, the name of her channel is Pinksofoxy.  It was super easy and of course I had to make mine pink and white because I'm inlove with those colors.

I'm always making papercrafts.  I've made several mini albums over the last few months and I've started getting into vintage junk journals.  I have two in the makings so I will share pictures of them when they are finished.  I never thought I liked papercrafting until this year.  I  saw a lady making a mini album last year and I had to try it.  I've been hooked ever since and have started doing other paper things like cards and other embellishments to go along with all that.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog!  Merry Christmas!  Lori

Soap Lollies ready for our craft show

I have been so busy making things and getting ready for a local craft show that I have neglected my blog for a little while.  But my kids and I are so excited to get back to doing some shows and being a little busy has actually been good for me.  It is so much fun to do these craft shows, especially around this time of year when everyone is getting ready for the holidays.
I am hoping for a good turnout for this 3 day event.  I always hope I've made enough soap!

These pics are just a sneak peak at the things I've gotten made over the last several weeks.  I have been taking lots of pictures and will try and post them over the next few days. 

I signed up for a Christmas tag swap in a FB group I'm a part of the other day and so I need to make lots of tags.  I don't know what I was thinking but it will be fun.  There will definitly be pictures posted of those I make and also of the handmade tags I receive. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Hope you guys are having a blessed week! Lori
