Paper Christmas Mugs

These are the Christmas Mugs that I made for the ladies that take care of me at the Cancer Center.  These ladies are extraordinary examples of the spirit of love that it takes to be in the health care field.  They are always compassionate, caring and kind and I wanted to do something to show my appreciation!  I love making these and have made them several times.  I made 32 of them in 3 days....I will post the directions on how to make them soon.  They are super easy to make!  You will love the ease of making these in large quantities so that you can give them as teacher gifts, people in your office, maybe a wedding shower, baby shower etc. 

I filled them with hot chocolate, cookies, chocolates and a candy cane.  Thanks for stopping by

Altered Paint Can

The Altered Paint Can that I made for a swap on Facebook. The flower on top was made with my Blossom Punch from Stampin' Up.  I added a magnet to the back so that she could use it for something else if she wanted too.  I filled the can with Washi Tape.  I hope she loves every roll of it! 

I really enjoyed this project.  Hope you all like it.  As always, thanks for stopping by

Tim Holtz style Tags

These are tags that I made for a swap that I did on Facebook.  I love doing tags.  It's such a challenge to do something creative in a small area.  Kind of like doing the ATC's which I really was afraid of doing but then realized that I love them after I did a few.  I hope you liked seeing them.  Thanks for looking

Name Plate

This is a project that I recently made for a Stocking Swap.  I made this for my Secret Sister.  I used black paint on a piece of wood and then cut the letters and flourishes on my Cricut.  I glued everything down then put a glossy coat on top using Glossy Accents. I made quite a bit more and will be posting each day.  I also did Tim Holtz style tags again this year in a swap...I will be posting those in the next couple of days.  I hope you'll come back to see more.  As always, thanks for stopping by....

Sincerest Apologies

To all of my awesome blog friends ...I'm really sorry that I haven't posted my blog candy winner or the picture.  I've been very ill and still not feeling well.  I got very sick the day after Thanksgiving and I'm just starting to feel a little better.  Yesterday I went to the chemo center to see the doctor hoping beyond hope that I wouldn't be hospitalized.  I was running high temperatures for 3 days.  Yesterday it was over 102 degrees.  They have cancelled and rescheduled my chemo from this week till next week.  I didn't have to be admitted to the hospital which is such a blessing.... I have another appointment tomorrow.  Still not back to 100% but wanted to let you all know that I haven't forgotten.  I'll pick a winner on Friday if I continue to get better and post later this week, hopefully I'll be much better by Thursday or Friday.  Hope you're all having a wonderful week.  God bless you
