Happy New Year

I can't believe another year has come and gone. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. I will not be making any New Years resolutions this year that just puts to much pressure on a person. Can't wait to see what 2010 holds.

Last post before Christmas

This is such a great card. I found the SVG HERE  but I think it could be printed and cut out by hand if you don't use SCAL and a cricut. Here

This is a little gift for 2 of the ladies I work with. I filled them with candy and put a pin in one and a bookmark in the other. I just love the way they turned out.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you Peace, Faith, and Joy for the New Year.
Hugs to all

Wow..........Where has this year gone????

I feel like everyone else has been so busy making such beautiful things while I have been just trying to get my computer to work. I am now using windows 7 from vista. Yes vista was bad but at least I knew how to work it. W7 is all new to me and I can't get things to work right yet. I should be use to this I change computers or OS. every Christmas, I just got this gift a little early. My husband was tired of me yelling at my computer about vista. lol
I do have a few pictures of our house to share with you. I only used 1/2 the lights and none of the animated things..... I must be getting old!!!!

Christmas Tree

I made this little tree for my mother-in-law. They do a lot of traveling in their motor home so I thought it would be fun to have a pre decorated tree for it. I made the little bags to just fit over the mini lights.

Help with Sure Cuts A lot

A few of you have asked about the SCAL program and I found this blog that helps with this program. She has free downloads and I think if you have the SCAL or if you are thinking about getting it you should check this out.

Work gifts ......... done!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so I guess I have been busy with a few craft projects. I made one of these for all the people I work with and my kids stockings (46). They are the giant candy bars and they came out so cute. I found the snowman HERE, the hats are just tubes of fabric glued on, a piece of fabric for the scarf and a little glitter glue, DONE.
I used the cricut with the Christmas cheer cartridge to put the Merry Christmas on the back.

My first try at an SVG file for the SCAL

Ok this is the first thing I have made and cut with my Sure cuts a lot program. I took it all apart in inkscape and I must say it came out sooooooooooo cute except for all the glue I got all over EVERYTHING! It is all over the top of my desk, my project, my fingers.... Some days you just shouldn't mess with glue. I am working on the mask part, I hope to get it so it cuts all in one piece, the less glue the better! lol
I am really liking the new program. Got to love the Cricut!
