My top 10 of 2010

I thought this would be fun, hope to see all of you play along. I found in doing this challenge that I did not make as many cards this year as I did in the past.

Craft show update

OMGosh, we had a GREAT show! Almost sold out of everything! By 10:30am we started to worry a little that we wouldn't have enough items to make it until 4:00pm. We did but we sure carried a lot of empty boxes to the car. Had a great time and can't wait to do it again.

Another Christmas Card

Another Christmas card I will be sending out this year. I love this type of card, it is so fun. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Ok so like many of you I have told myself “I am going to use each one of my craft items, stamps/punches/programs… etc… at least once before I buy anything else”.  I have been telling myself this for a few YEARS now. Well this is it! I will make an item as soon as I can after I get my new item. This is the embossing folder (Stampin up Northern Flurry) and die (Stampin up Northern Frost) I ordered at Gina’s the other day and got today. I love this folder! I think I will be using this one a lot. The die is beautiful (a little time consuming picking out all the little pieces) I made a bunch of the snow flakes to use as I need them. I used pink because that was what was on the desk but I like it.

Stampin Up Stamp a Stack

I had to get this embossing folder.

We couldn't decide if I already had this dear so I didn't get it, I should have because if I have it I can't find it.lol

Gift card holder.... Now that is easy gift giving.

Had a great time with Gina and friends. Gina always has such great ideas and I so enjoy spending time doing something I love. We played from 1pm to 5pm and left with 16 cards, 2 gift card holders, and 2 money holders.
Thanks again Gina.

Fall is in the air

I saw this card and knew I had to make one. The leaves are changing here and our weather is now cooling off and looking more and more like fall.

 I had a little time to play today, these are all cased but I really don't remember where I got them all from but I love them! I was going to play for the rest of the day and track down where I CASED these from but, I just got a call, my oldest son has lost the only set of keys to his truck in the lake so I am driving 3-4 hours to pick him up and take him to the Dodge shop some place in Texas and hope they can make a key with the vin #. Wish me luck and I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend

Craft shows

Things just might be slowing down enough so I can get back to crafting. Summer is always such a crazy time around here but I can feel the change in weather starting and only have a few more camping trips planned for this year. I really need to get up there and get started on some craft show items we have 2 shows already planned for this year. My friend Kristen and I are so excited we made the cut for the LaCueva juried craft show! We know of a few crafters that have been trying for years to get into this show so to us it is quite an accomplishment. I will be posting again very soon ….. no really this time. Lol
If you have had luck with items at craft shows please let me know what they are we have only done one other show and have a lot to learn.
Thank you to everyone for the emails asking about me. I am fine and happy to be back.

The balls are in the yard

The balls are in the yard and they look so cute. The best part is the New Mexico wind can’t blow them away!

I won’t be in the craft room anytime soon I have picked up a new wish child and will be working on his wish this week. He wants a pop up tent trailer and the Make a wish foundation has granted it for him. We will be delivering it to him at our dealership on Aug. 7, 2010. I love being part of such a great organizations, both Make-a-Wish and Rocky Mountain RV. Being a wish granter is amazing! I love to see how happy these kiddos are when they get their wishes.

Then I have family coming from Texas the fallowing week. I love spending time with family and I haven’t seen this family near enough. So I think from now on I will just not craft in the summer. That way I won’t feel like I am not getting enough done. Lol I have been firing the kiln a few times a week, I need to find someone that drinks more so I will have enough slumped glass for this years show.

My friend Kristen and I have sighed up of a few shows and we hope to get our feet wet this year and see if it is something we want to continue.

Bowling balls for yard art.

These are not done yet but wanted to share them with you anyway. I got the bowling balls from a thrift store for $3.99 each. The pattern and directions I googled and found directions in the online magazine Birds and Blooms. I found if I put the balls on full soda/beer cans it would hold the balls and only leave a small ring to paint later.

For the black first I tried tape and masked it off. I fouund this didn't work for me so I just hand painted the black over the red.
I found this copper tube in the back yard where my DH had left it after he replaced it on the a/c, it was his idea to bend the end before we put it into the finger holes.

I only had white caulking but it is paintable, I just have to wait for it to dry before I can paint it. I think it will be at least a week and then they will be sent to the backyard to live. I have 2 more balls and I think I will make the bees out of them.
