How exciting will that be?

Every Year Amy has a crop for Christmas
I love to make the cards she designs
Check out some of our projects

Welcome to my spot


We made two canisters




A Christmas card and a gift card holder




A Christmas Folder (my favorite project)



I was joined by a few friends



Suella and Nancy


Stephanie and her friend



I also made this for my grandson while I was there.

A Pirates Spy Glass
Made from a tin foil box and tube




Suella and I always exchange gifts at this
Since we cannot get together for Christmas
Here is what she gave me


A scrapbook a me loosing my first new car
Pulled right from my blog
I cried I loved it so much
Thanks Suella




I am sure she will feature her gift from me on her blog
I entered it into a challenge that caused
A huge drama session
So I will not be showing it here, Sorry
The drama starter visits my blog
And I don't wanna give more amo to her furry
Thats my rant, I have a online staulker
I thought that only happened to the teens
Guess not..

Anyways.. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas in July

Infinity Scarves

I seen these on pinterest and decided to give them a whirl...
I made three at the retreat I went to and I just love making them..
I am not a scarf wearer but I might just wear this coral one I tell ya...



So many ways to wear them



My favorite way


And in black too





They fold nice and flat for traveling...


I made these from recycled tee shirts, knit fabric and recycled lace curtains
Who knew such beauty could come from
Such a simple source..
Try your hand playing with some old tee shirts
See what you can create..

Happy Recycling

Braided to add to my scraf
Could also be a head wrap

Love this so much
Add any color broach or pin
Or even a long necklace

Or Gems or Conchos
You can just do so much with these
