I finished these small ornaments up and hopefully they will make someone happy! You can see the little red berries (beads)in the last 2 photos, and I added the gold string to hang........to finish the back I just cut a piece of felt the same size as the ornament and glued it .........super easy! Hopefully next year I can get with the program now and make a tree full of these. Happy wet thursday here in Oklahoma.......... Continue reading

Finished this big 6 dozen order for Christmas Sugar Cookies last night..........although I love to frost cookies when I have time, these took about 8 hours! A little more time than usual but I wanted to make them special for a dear friend. Sure hope she likes them. Last week we went out of town for a couple days and I came back with some new Punch Needle work......... Changed up the colors a bit on this........not quite finished but Santa needs eyes, a few berries on the tree and then he will be ready to turn into an ornament............ Continue reading

I always love making a December Journal even if I don't keep up with the days but it's always fun to do one.........these are just a few pages.

Thank you to all those who came and supported me at the BFC Christmas Market........so much fun seeing so... Continue reading

I received a text from a friend last night to tell me the DMC floss was on sale at Joann's Fabric..........although it's not like the sale they have in the spring it's still better than the original price......regular price is 56 a skein, it's on sale for 40 cents a skein........so if you are into embroidery or PUNCH NEEDLE it's worth going and stocking up on the colors you use. Happy thursday........... Continue reading

A little " Merry Tea Bag Tags"........and a few card tags.......so fun to get back to paper, washi tape, paint, scraps of velvet and all of my collected Paper WHIMSY cut out faces.........I have a boat load and now I am able to put those little faces on something useful........plus if you are a tea drinker they all smell good because you empty the tea out after they have been soaked. It's a process but worth it when they are finished. I am thinking about making little envelopes for the tea bags to go in but haven't gotten that far... Continue reading
