Candy bar wrappers

I have been making & selling some really cute Christmas wrappers for those big 1/2 pound Hershey Bars you see in Walmart! (They're on sale for 4 for $5 right now!!) I design them in my Photoshop program, print & laminate with clear contac paper. (which is so pliable & rip-resistant!!) Then I just cut 'em out & use double sided tape to wrap them up! Great gift for Church family members, co-workers, neighbors, etc. I sell the wrappers only ( you add the candy bar!) for $1.25 each, which INCLUDES the I could do just about any design imaginable!

Crazy days.....

OK, it's been a few days & I have had lots going on! My mother-in-law took ill with a severe asthma attack & has been in the hospital for a few days, so I got a little behind! She's doing fine now & I am back to getting ready for another show I have Tues evening at The Oak Hill Baptist Church festival in Somerset! I took a few minutes today to make a cute new baby card, pictured here. Hope all of you have a great day! More later....

Met a new Friend!

OMIGOSH! I'm always amazed at all the talented & creative people I meet thru crafting! You have to go to my new friend's (Barabara) website! It is too cute & the prices are wonderful---check it out: You'll see tons of stuff that the special baby in your life will just have to have!

Starting a new week...

OK--Hubby made it back safe & sound this evening, so I'm thankful for that! Now-- starting tomorrow I need to make the orders I got at Sat's show & I really need to do some cleaning on my home office! It's a huge mess!! Stuff everywhere! With my nerve damage problem it takes me 3 or 4 times longer than anyone else, so I procrastinate terribly! I also like to do a good cleaning on the whole house before Thanksgiving, so that's coming up & we usually have to recruit or hire help because I could never get it done on my own! Ok, now I've gotten myself all tired thinking about all the work that needs to be done, so I'm gonna go to bed!! Ta-Ta for Now.... hehe

Gorgeous Day, New Updates...

I have all the windows open today & it is just gorgeous outside!! My cat, Marbie, loves it when we open all the windows! She goes room to room sniffing the air! LOL I changed the bow on my block light that I posted yesterday & what a difference!! I like it so much better now! Here's a Christmas card I did, also!

Still goin' at it...

Still trying to keep busy & so I made a new card in the wee hours of the night...a baby one! I like to use ribbons, especially wired ribbon, to embellish my cards. I am going to work on a bunch of new Christmas ones later today. Here's a pic of the baby one I did, tho.

It's rainy, windy & gloomy here today...perfect crafting weather....if I could stay awake! LOL Hubby is going on a fishing weekend with his brother tomorrow so that will give me lots of guilt-free crafting time. Hope all is well in your worls today! More later....

More ideas brewin'

Do you ever feel like your mind is going to explode from so many thoughts going on at once?? I am going thru that tonight & it's exhausting me! I did some designing of some glass block lights tonight. Haven't made any in a while & all of a sudden I came up with some ideas & decided to make a couple. Will try to post pics later! Still trying to get things organized & planned out for the fall festival I have to do on Sat. Sometimes I do my best work & get more accomplished at the last minute! hehe Or at least that's the thought I'm hanging on to tonight! More later....

Another late night...

I have a sleeping disorder that is still to be diagnosed, but it sometimes includes insomnia & this is one of those nights! Soooo...I decided to add some photos to my blog & add a new post!

Today I did some work on making up some new Christmas notecards....I'll post them tomorrow, as I am having problems with my new camera---or it's having problems with me! hehe I also made a "Souper Teacher" can using a soup can & some cute graphics I got here: Some crafters actually leave the can as is, but I empty mine & then fill it with a cello bag full of candy & tie the top with red & white ribbon...looks really cute & makes a perfect pencil holder for later! :o) But that's about all I did. Not feeling too well.

Tomorrow( or today, really) is supposed to be rainy, so I will TRY to stay awake, altho it makes me so lathargic! I would like to make up more "souper" cans...I have them for Mom, Grandparents, Students & Bus Driver, as well! I'm also looking forward to my Stampin' Up club that I go to each month!

Better try to sign off here & get to bed....More later!

New site, New beginnings

Hi everyone! I managed, FINALLY, to get my new crafting site up & going! , of course! I love all the drawings, my friend, Lori did for me!! Too cute! My favorite one is pictured here!! I'm already thinking of more product ideas, but will have to see what my health & time will allow!

I'm so happy the cooler weather is finally here!! I hate summer...I know, most people love it...but to me it just brings sweat, bugs, snakes & HEAT!

I love the cooler weather we get here in Ky with Spring & Fall & I actually love winter, too because I seem to feel better then. I think it's because all the germs & stuff are not floating around in the freezing air! :0)

Am working on a craft show I have to do this Sat, the's an indoor one, which I much prefer & I'm thinking the last one I will do for a while. Not feeling too well lately & stay lathargic a LOT! ugh Anyway...more later...time to hit the hay!
