I just realized that starting next month May I will reach my 1 year BLOG anniversary. OMG how time flies by us so quickly when you're having fun crafting. I also noticed that I reached over 20,000 which doubled when I wanted to post a blog candy for all who come to view my blog. I am actually giving away 2 blog candies! The second one is a bag that I had printed for some friends that are also "Craftaholics" and since I had a few extra's I thought of giving one away. I also want to say "THANK YOU" to all who come to check out my blog whenever you can. Have a Great Day and good luck. I will post the winner this Friday evening! I will also be including a "Hello Kitty" makeup bag that I sewed and have not yet taken a pic of.

If you would like a chance to win this blog candies you must do the following:
  1. Be a follower of my blog if you're not already
  2. Have already posted a comment on my blog in the past
  3. Tell me what you like to look for when you check out in blogs
  4. Post a link on your blog about this blog candy...
  5. And lastly, yesterday I wanted to have some ice cream because it was so hot. What flavor do you like and what flavor do you think I like to eat?
Here's the 2nd blog candy that I am also giving away. The size of this bag is a pretty good size. It measures 13"w x 12"h x 4-1/2"d.


"Professional Administrative Assistant's Day" Purse Card

Wow another post for the second time this week. I know that "Professional Assistant's Day" was on the 21st which was yesterday but today is when the card had to be done because she comes back to work today. So last minute that I am did it late last night. I wanted to do something really simple but I saw this while surfing the blogs and wanted to try it myself. I need to make another again so I can have a template for myself and maybe make a few changes. I hope she likes it.... Have a Great Day today!!


Tissue holder and card

Sorry I've been MIA for sometime now. I know I posted earlier that I will be sending a blog candy out soon. I accidently deleted the post rather than editing it. It's coming soon..I just need to finish a few things like finish reorganizing my craft room then I will post it real soon. I'm finally getting it done and had to take a day off from work to do this last Friday.
Anyway, I made this quick card for a friend who moved to the mainland and is still doing cards and wanted to share some images with her. I haven't done cards for awhile since getting distracted making other paper crafts and also sewing. My stash of birthday cards, thank you cards & just because cards is getting really low so I need to replenish it soon. Secretary's day is this week and I need to make it tonight for tomorrow! Thank you all for stopping by and Have a Great Day!

I wanted to also show you this really cute Hello Kitty tissue holder that I got online. It's giving me an idea to make of fabric tonite too! What do you think? Sorry about the background, kinda distracting but I took the picture in front of my computer and didn't realize the icons were going to show up.


The bag lady is back again!

I guess I can definitely be called the bag lady. Here I am again making bags! This time its not made of paper. I guess you can use it for almost anything like make up, coins, toothbrush & toothpaste or anything you want. I have a lot of fabric that I decided to make use of and made these trinket bags with a zipper and zipper pull. I initially wanted to make a pencil case but I measured it too short so I guess I can't put pencils in it and maybe just pens. Anyway Thanks for stopping by today and Have a Great Weekend!


Downy Touch of Comfort

This is not a paper craft project but I wanted to share something with everyone that comes to visit my blog. Along with doing paper crafts, beading & all sorts of other crafts I also sew. This project that I am happy to be donating my time for is for "Quilts for Kids" an organization of caring volunteer quilters to help donate 10,000 homemade quilts to children in hospitals. Downy is a supporter of Quilts for Kids. The fabric is sent to you and all you need to do is sew the quilt together and send it back to them within 6 weeks. It's for a good cause and I am happy to be helping children in hospitals all over the United States.

This 1st picture is when I cut the pieces and joined them in squares and created the pattern.
This next picture is when I sewed the pieces all together.
This last picture I sewed all the borders together so you can see what the top of the quilt looks like. The inside has quilt batting and the back of the quilt is the same fabric that is around the borders. I just ironed everything down to flatten it and now all I have to do is quilt all the pieces together. I should be done by this week and can finally send it back to "Quilt for Kids, Inc." after I wash and dry the completed quilt. I will be happy to know that I will make a child happy to have his or her very own quilt. If anyone is interested in donating their time for children in hospitals you can check out the website.

Clutch purse and wedding card

Here's a clutch purse that I decided to make for a wedding shower that I am going to. It's for both the bride and groom to be. I wanted to be different and decided to put the card in this clutch purse. They will be getting married in Las Vegas in a couple weeks and we won't be able to be there for the wedding. It would probably be more for her and not him since most guys are not into paper crafts.

This is the card I made for them. I had no idea what to create so I used her colors and also used the Quikutz cake for this card. I hope she likes it!
Have a Great weekend!!


Purse Tote

I went to a craft class today to learn how to make this "purse tote". We actually made 2 different purse's and this was one of them. This is such an awesome purse and measures "6 tall x 9" wide. The colors were just perfect since I like these 2 colors. I will probably be making more of these since it's great to give as a RAK with lots of goodies. The mega size paper clip was just added by me to show you that the sides are pockets that you can put something in it too. I just love this purse tote..... Anyway Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
