More bottles

than I know what to do with! I am working hard to have enough for all the craft shows we are going to do this year. I just about sold out last year so I am getting a head start this time.

Fishing box

Another really cute Father's Day gift box. This one comes from here and was really easy to do. It was a bit bigger than I thought it would be but a really fun project. Hope you all have a wonderful week.

How fun is this little grill gift card holder!!

 This is such a cute little grill giftcard holder, I will be giving it to my dad for Father's Day. I think I will get a giftcard from the county line BBQ place to up in it. You can find it here.

The new kiln is wonderful

This is my old kiln, my mother bought it back in the early 80's and it is still a great little kiln. I just wanted to slump larger bottles.  
Here is the wonderful new kiln my husband found for me. He checked craigslist every day and found this one for $200.00!!! When we went to see it I didn't have much faith that it would work but thought I would give it a try. The nice lady sold it to us for $125.00 because it needed a new lid and she didn't know if it would work either.

Well a new lid $160.00 and a kiln sitter $40.00 and it works great.

Quick little gift on a cold day

I needed a quick little gift so I went back through my old projects. I found this one and it will work out great. I haven't had much time to craft this year, I am getting all the year end stuff done at work, W-2's, 1099's all the fun IRS stuff. Anyway after that I am going to play in my craft room for days!!!

1st post of 2011

Some of the cricut things we did for Christmas gifts. My youngest son Mitch wanted to do these Call of Duty Black Op window stickers for his and his friend’s cars. We used shelf contact paper to test cut them and then went and got the more expensive cricut vinyl.  Mitch put the ones we cut out of the shelf contact paper on his car “just to see how it looked”, they stuck well and looked good. In the end the shelf contact paper worked better than the cricut vinyl for what we were doing. They have been on the cars in the snow, rain, wind and crazy freezing weather. He put one on my car too, I just took it off today (totaly not my style). It was stuck well but came off easy enough. He also made his girlfriend a cupcake for her car but I didn’t get a picture of it yet.

I also made this T-n-T sticker for Terry (hubby) and Travis (oldest son) for their pro fisherman logo.
