Last group of Christmas Presents

2 01 2012

We had our last Christmas gathering yesterday and I can finally post the rest of my pictures.  I have included a few orders that I have filled too.  I’m getting ready to work on some SNOW projects, just being hopeful :)!

This first project came from Dog Under My Desk and I added personalization to the back.  Thanks for such a great tutorial (although I wasn’t near my printer so I didn’t use her pattern, but I would have been easier if I had!) T2s friends loved them at their gift exchange on New Years Eve.

We also put vinyl on A LOT OF STUFF.  The monkey nightlight is for my nephew to match his monkey themed room I made the goodies for. The others are gifts and orders we (my friend Steph has been helping tons!) have filled.

Zach's nightlight

I made a marker roll & marsupial for my nieces as well as these dry erase frames for their rooms.

And last but not least, how about some Angry Birds with blocks.  T3 & 4 used the little Angry Birds that T4 got in his stocking and filmed (no I didn’t include the MANY videos they made) each episode of the Angry Birds game.  They worked on this for hours.  I love how creative they are!

I go back to school tomorrow 😦 but I am trying to adopt a new attitude toward all the changes coming down the pipe in education.

December at a glance

26 12 2011

I haven’t posted any crafty stuff for A LONG TIME.  So here is some of what I have been doing.  We’ll call it December at a glance.  I apparently didn’t take pictures of everything I’ve done, but here’s some of it.  Hope everyone had a great Christmas and is ready to ring in the new year.

I’m opening a tab on my blog called color me m boutique where I can take custom orders for the items listed.  Check it out and pass it on.

Christmas Greetings and some gifts

25 12 2010

Before we go dashing through the snow to Nana’s house, I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas.  I would share with you my cranberry punch, but a picture of it cooking will have to do. I sometimes add some orange spirits to my glass 🙂 but without, it’s kid friendly!I have already given some of the gifts below, so I thought I would go ahead and share. Have a very Merry Christmas!

Mug rug idea from Pin Sew Press.  Snowman Hershey Bars from Kerry’s Paper Crafts.

glitter trees

28 11 2010

To round out my mantel, I made glitter trees, as seen in this post at Eighteen25 I also got my glitter at Hobby Lobby; a much better selection than Michael’s, unless you count the Martha Stewart glitter that was too high for my budget.  I couldn’t find 3 different sized cones, so I use 2 sizes and different heights of candle holders, purchased at the Dollar Tree.  I think it looks great with my wreath.  Too bad the stockings don’t match.  Won’t be getting any new ones soon though, those are from Pottery Barn and hubby would freak!

I will need to take a new mantle pic when the sun goes down.  Yes, I still need curtains 🙂

Yarn Ball Wreath

27 11 2010

I saw this wreath posted on Life Through the Lens (and many other places) and really wanted one for above the wall on the mantel in our home.  The wall is white and I LOVE the fun colors. It took a lot more styrofoam balls than I thought it would so thank goodness for the for 40% off coupons and sales!  I got some of the ornaments in the dollar bin at target and others at Michael’s. I replaced the candles in the sconces with leftover yarn balls and ornaments.  I have some glitter trees I’m working on in the same color for one side of the stocking and my chalkboard plate with joy on the other (probably adorned with more ornaments).  Hopefully I can post the rest tomorrow.  Happy Christmas decorating!
