Warm Woolies!

Hi Friends! Me again. hehehe I know I've been quiet and now I'm dumping three posts in a row. LOL
Well, what can I say I got inspired. :)
Here I have a pair of warm woolie mittens that I sewed.  The blue wool is from an old felted sweater and then I had some brand new soft grey fleece that I cut out and sewed inside.  They aren't shaped perfectly, but they are very warm and at least I'll know what is left and what is right! LOL

Here is a pic of the beautiful sunshine we saw a couple of days ago.  It's been so overcast most of the time that the sunshine is very much enjoyed!  Hope you all enjoy the last moments of this year.  :)

A Quaint Little Set

Hello! I've another sweet little set to share with you all.  It's made with another set of images from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.  I think these sunflower and chicken images are so quaint.  I love the overlapping stamping.
I used some sweet My Mind's Eye papers and some satin black ribbon.  They're simple but will be easily mailed.
Enjoy peeking at them. Hope you have a wonderful crafty day!

A Lovely Set

Hello Crafty Friends!  I must say that I truly enjoyed making some cards again.   I had printed out these delightful images form Ephemera's Vintage Garden awhile back and am just now using them.  they're so beautiful and if you have the time to pop over and check out the wonderful things she creates!  HERE! 
I created a lovely little set of cards that I'll give as a gift sometime.  Hope you enjoy scrolling down to look at them.
I'm sharing them with Word Art Wednesday this week.

Hope you have a lovely day! as this year comes to a close.

Crocheting Sewing Moments

Hi Ladies!
Sorry to say I've not been doing much card making lately.  But I have been doing lots of other things. I found a flannel duvet and made it into sheets for my boys beds.  I made an apron for baking.  Then I made a baby girl blanket with some leftover yarn in my stash.  I'm not expecting but thought it would be I have to find someone who needs one. :)  Then today just for fun I made myself a hat so I'd have an extra incase my regular one gets too wet to use.  I made one just like it for a friend and liked the pattern so much I decided to use the same one.

My daughter says the blanket reminds her of Neapolitan ice cream. LOL  The pictures for some reason didn't pick up the pink very well.  It's much deeper in person.

I had just enough brown yard to make the scalloped edge.

And yes, this is me. I dislike pics of myself, but thought I might as well model this because it's mine.

I had my sweet daughter model this for me tonight.  It's called a newsboy hat.  The yard is acrylic and wool so it'll be nice and warm for outings this winter.

I think I'll be sharing this hat also... everyone seems to like it. :)

Thanks for dropping by! I haven't forgotten about all of you and pray that you are enjoying your crafting time.  The Lord has been keeping me busy caring for my family and I am enjoying it very much!  I absolutely love being a mom and homemaker.

Have a beautiful day!

A Set from Bits of This and That

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I have a set of cards to share with you that I've created for my sweet Mother-in-law for her birthday.  They are all simple, and yet I hope she finds them charming. Sorry the light off to the left of the pics is a bit bright, but that's all I had at the time.  All of the cards are made with misc sentiment stamps that I dug out of my stash, and bits of this and that. All the card bases are by Mind's Eye.
Life has been so full of wonderful things.  I shall share some of my children's creations at some point that we've been working on.  I love that my girls are so creative, and we can share my crafty spot.  The Lord has been SO good to me!  Each day holds a treasure and I'm so glad that the Lord is constantly teaching us through His Word and that we are able to be able to serve him in all that we say and do.
Praying that you are all well.  Do take a couple minutes to scroll down and check out the cards that I put together.  If you also have an extra minute do let me know what one is your favourite. :)

A Couple Just For You

Hello Friends!  Today I have a couple of cards that I've made just because.  I needed a couple cards to send to a couple ladies just because and so I put these together.  The top one I used an image that I had found free online ( if you know where it's from do let me know so I can give credit).  I layered it up and added a lovely ribbon that added a soft touch and yet didn't take away from the lovely backdrop.  

Here I have a card that I put together with some lovely papers and a piece of a doily.  I added the touch of ribbon for her to have a place to sit.  She's a lovely girl from Anna Stillwell at Cuttlebug Cuties.    I love many of the sweet girls that she draws.  This girl reminded me of the lady that I coloured her up for.  I tried to colour her to compliment the papers.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC crafting blog.  

Thanks for dropping by!  It's so nice to be able to share my creations with you!

Time for a Mini Album

Hello Friends!  The Lord has been blessing me with many things lately and one of them is this.  Today I have a lovely little album to share with you that I created from a kit that my sweet friend Nancy Nickel from Nickel Nook is selling.  You can check out her blog and see what she has done with this kit.  I was so excited to receive it that I did it all in one day! It did take a few hours and my family was so wonderful to let me take the time.  Talk about being inspired. LOL So I hope you have some time to take in all the pics I'm sharing.  This album is full of lovely things, pockets and places to store pictures and memories.  Hope you enjoy!

It was so fun to put this together and one day I would love to make another mini was really fun!  Plus you're left with something special to keep.

I would like to share this with Word Art Wednesday. My favourite anything goes challenge blog.

Now here are some closer up pics that I took so that you can see each page better if you'd like.

If you've made it all the way down here! Thank you for taking the time to peek at all my pics.  It was a real joy to make this and to also be able to share it with you! May you have a beautiful day and thank the Lord for all that he has given!
