I Have Been Doing a lot of Pie Making!

 . . . well at least a lot of crafting.  Outside of the already posted holiday projects I was up to my ears in crafting over the holidays.  Since then we have been batteling the stomach flu, colds and trying to get Christmas and my winter “spring” cleaning done. 

Santa was good to me this year!  I got a ton of  craft store gift cards and The Cinch.  I am still holding off on the Imagine, just becasue part of my Christmas/Birthday present from they hubs was re-doing my craft room.  So all things in moderation and I LOVE how my craft room is truning out!  Deciding to re-do my craft room in the full swing of all the projects was a bit nutty, but if you knew me, you would get that I have a VERY high energy level that does not know how to stop until my body stops me:-).

I am on the hunt for the Hello Kitty Cricut Cart that has been retired so I can do my almost 4 year old’s bithday stuff, if you know of a place I can find it, that is not going to cost a million dollars, please let me know.  I have been looking on Ebay and they are going for about $80-$100. 

So on to my projects and thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “wow no wonder I am a wee bit  Christmas Cheered Out” pie with me! 

Project 1: Idea came from My Pink Stamper’s 12 Days of Christmas

Project 2: Another idea  from My Pink Stamper’s 12 Days of Christmas for the lady that does my hair.  She lives in the “Christmas Candy Cane Lane” neigborhood and has the Charlie Brown themed house. She sits out with friends and family almost every night greeting the hundreds of people checking out the lights and I thought this would keep those sheer cutting hands warm.

Project 3: I made these cards for my nephews who were getting gift cards.  They liked them!

Project 4:  I made these pack of cards for all the ladies in our family.  I ended up making 3 in each set which came to 21 cards!  I did this kind of last minute. I used My Pink Stamper’s Sweetest Cupcake Stampset I won from a Blog Hop Challenge back in August.  I also used Once Upon A Princess Cartridge for the cupcake. All the ladies LOVED them!

Project 5: I made this for a sweet friend that got married on December 9th.  It was a very small and close wedding at the beautiful Ojai Valley Inn, Ojai, CA.  I was one of the very few that were invited to the quiet and yet elegant event – I also made some tags for this event I posted about earlier this month.  I used a new stamp set I got from Close to my Heart, Cherish the Day! The cartrige I used was Storybook – Thank You setting.

Project 6:  My girls and I made this for my father-in-law’s birthday that was in early December.  He loves old cars, so we had fun doing some new tricks using Peachy Keen faces and Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge.

[Project 7:  Christmas cards for some bloggging buddies I have formed this year.  I used a Christmas stack from Papertreyink, Christmas stamp set from My Pink Stamper and the ortament came from Simply Charmed.

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Happy Saturday before Turkey Day!  I am heading off to our first Thanksgiving meal of the season today! I am super excited that I am cooking this year on the big day!  However, today I am going to make pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes to bring to the dinner along with a bottle of wine.

Now on to the winner of my poll I conducted this week.  I used Random.org and numbered the names of the participants  and wallah… the winner is Missy from Quick Chick Designs!   I could not embed the widget into this blog… totally frustrating.  If you know how please let me know! I think you are going to LOVE the stamp set ( I am going bananas for it) and the holiday themed Stickles.   The neat thing about the stamp set is that it is compatible with the Cricut Cartridge, Art Philosophy.  I will contact you to for you mailing address!

As for my decision, I decided to go with the Cinch (it is on sale at Jo-Ann’s for 40% off)…the Imagine, is a given.. of course I will get it! 🙂 Thank you for all your feedback.  It really helped! I would have never knew about the Cinch and I was put to ease about the ink consumption for the Imagine.

Last week I participated in my first Close to My Heart card workshop.  It was super fun and the ladies I met there where a stitch.  They had me laughing more than creating!  It was a great time.  Here are a few cards we made.
