Merry and Bright

First and foremost, where did 2015 go?  Weren't we just celebrating Christmas 2014??!  Crazy how time flies.
Today I'm up on the Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz blog with some Pocket Page Christmas cards.
I am IN LOVE with this cute little reindeer from Doodlebug Designs!!!
I'm also IN LOVE with these Holiday Sentiment Stamps.  They're perfect for any holiday project that you're working on.  I also used Solid Black twine and some assorted sequins.

Oh Christmas Tree...

Happy Black Friday, friends!

For my blog post up on Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz, I have a fun Christmas inspired craft to share with you. 
But first...a sale. :)

I'm one of "those people" that puts my Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving. Ok - only the day before, but still. 

Here's the finished product:
I used Licorice Twine to hang the red ornaments and I love the end result!

Give Thanks

Turkey time is just around the corner!  I love Thanksgiving.  I love the food, family, friends and of course, everything that I have to be grateful for.
This card is the first one I've made in probably 2 years. 
I got an idea in my head and just whipped it out.  LOVE it when that happens!!
The stamp set is BRAND SPANKING NEW from Bella Creations!  The twine that the cute little turkey is sitting on is from Timeless Twine, and you can get it here for $2.25/spool!!!
Gobble till you wobble, friends.

Autumn Picture Frame

October is officially my favorite month. 
Well, next to April but that's for a whole other reason. :)
Sweaters. Hot drinks.  Cold air.
And CUTE little kids to take pictures of at the pumpkin patch.
I saw this cute little frame on Pinterest and I knew I needed to make one.
Get a piece of wood, wrap your favorite twine (I used Timeless Twine's Autumn Splendor) around it so you can slip a picture through it.  Embellish as you see fit!  I like it because I can update the picture in it each year, or you can make it with 1 picture permanently on it.
Oh, did I mention that this fabulous fall twine is on sale for $2.25/roll??
Well, it is. :)  So go buy some!!

Halloween Candle Holder

Happy Friday, friends!
Today, I'm up on the Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz blog with a festive candle holder for Halloween.
Before I show you my creation, just wanted to let ya'll know that these fabulous Halloween colors are ON SALE!!  $4.50 for a spool.  They're so much fun to play with, and you can find them all HERE!!
Now, for the feature presentation:
I took a vase that I already had, and bought some candy corn and white candle, as well as some fun burlap.  After I secured the burlap in place, I simply wrapped the Solid Black twine around it. 
My daughter kept saying "that's SO STINKING cute!" when she saw the finished project. :)

Happy Haunting!

Trick or Treat

Can you believe that next week is the first of October??  Not me.  Crazy how fast this year has gone!
October = Halloween, where all of the cute little goblins and ghouls come out requesting candy.
It's really not a secret among my friends and family that Halloween is NOT my favorite holiday.  However, in our new house, I have a mantle that's begging to be decorated.
So, for my first DIY project in the new house, I've made a cute little banner that I've hung across the mantle.

The letters were a pre-made kit that I found at Michaels, as well as the ghosts.  The ghosts were solid white, so I took a black sharpie to them to draw their eyes.  I used a small hole punch on both sides of their head to string the Halloween Combo twine through so that I could hang it up.
All of the Halloween colored twine is on sale for $4.50.  Trust me when I tell you it's SO fun to craft with!!
