I used some vintage fabric on this card, I love how it turned out. Wish you could see all the sparkling loveliness irl, it is very pretty!
Next, I used a different Red Lead stamp, as well as a sentiment stamp from another company and created two similar cards ~
I will be posting directions on the Bind-It-All Blog soon on how I created the bottom card (stay tuned!). I used the oh-so-fabulous Distrezz-It-All, and it was boatloads of fun to create. Of course, I also used a few of these sparklie lovelies~
I finished the grandkiddies Santa Countdown, YAY!!! I also finished one for our house, because we definintely need one here too. :) Here is a pic of one, with the extra set and extra numbers below. It was pretty time consuming to create, I was surprised. But then again, each little number or santa was like a bitsy little quilt, so I guess I shouldn't have been. They are cuter that cute though, wish you could really see them ~
I have also been working on other bits and pieces of things. Here are a few belts I zipped together super quickly for the grandkiddies stockings ~
Here is a wee little hair bow and belt for my three year old granddaughter who loves Mickey and Minnie and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ~
I have been decorating for Christmas too. The last few years have been very crazy and sometimes not so happy for our family. We have all gone through an awful lot, but thankfully things are a bit easier for us now. Hopefully they will continue this way for years to come. :) Anyway, I decided that I need to make things a bit cozy this year, even if I don't have boatloads of time to do so. I used to decorate like CRAZY, spending weeks to do so. I no longer have that kind of space to decorate, nor do I have that kind of time. But I do have some spots that have just the right amount of room, and I have been sneaking in a bit of decorating time here and there as I can. Here is a pic of my one super bitsy little FUN and BRIGHT pink tree, located on our recycled island in the basement (the fabulous big and sturdy oak unit used to be in a library in it's previous life) ~
I found some darling little pink tiny trees at Hobby Lobby, and since they were half off, they had to come home with me. Don't you like my hubbies Harley wall hanging over my sparklie pink stuff? ;) he he, lovely!
Here is a pic of one of my fav trees. I bought this tree in Shipshewana over a dozen years ago. I wanted a skinny tree, and they were hard to find then. I was thrilled when I found this one! It used to be located in our hallway at our old house. We had a lovely wraparound staircase and the hall between the kitchen, den, basement, and front entrance was nice and big (the foyer). I wanted a tree there, but not one that would take up a lot of space. So this tall skinny tree was perfect. I bought the tree topper in another shop in Shipshewana, I loved the contrast between old metal and the glitter, then I made over 100 star and heart ornaments in two sizes and several differnt tones of ivory for the tree. Of course I used lots of chunky glitter! I still hang those ornaments on this tree, in addition to a few different red ornaments and some glittery coated baby's breath. It is now in our dining room between some of my favorite artist (Nancy Noel) pictures (still have to put the tree skirt under the tree). Hope you like it ~
Of course, we also have our smores tree, and our regular Christmas tree put up. I did not take pics of those yet, so I will share them next week. My granddaughter and grandson love the smores tree, and keep putting items near it to play with. It is on our fireplace hearth, so it is a perfect height for them to "arrange" things. :) They are very creative, gotta love that!
Well friends, that is it for me this week, I need to get my rear in gear and finish a few tasks. Don't forget, if you are in the market for a new Bind-It-All or Distrezz-It-All, they are on sale for a limited time. Check them out here.
Hope you all have a safe, happy, and creative week ~ Pam
