Girly Junk Journal

I have been working really hard on this junk journal and I am so excited to share it! The papers are all coffee dyed and koolaid dyed and I love how it came out.  I just finished the cover today.  It's decorated with lots of bits and pieces of papers from past projects and I stitched it up with a daisy stitch for the binding.  The little mirror hanging out is the bookmark I put inside.  There are still some things I want to add...like a closure and some pretty little tags for the inside but it is completed enough for me to share pictures.  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentines Goodies

I have been working on all kinds of Valentine's Day projects.  Most of these went to a crafty swap I did in a FB group I'm a part of.  I love making all these Valentines goodies because by now you all know I love pink and all things girly!  It's only right to go all the way, extreme girly on Valentine's Day!  Thanks for stopping by!

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
