some unoriginal craftiness


Since I changed the name of my blog, I wanted to share some of my craftiness as of late. Of course the majority of it is copied from something else. I am rather proud of my work even though I didn't think of it. I did think of the little round gift card and it is super easy to make. I will tell you how. First you cut out two circles. I use a 2 1/2 inch punch. Then you cut around one with scalloped scissors (If you have a scalloped circle punch that would probably be easier). I ink the edges (drag the edges through your ink pad) then stamp a sentiment. I attach them together with a brad, eyelet or punch two small holes and tie with ribbon. Then you write who it's from on the inside. I love these little things. You can adhere it to a package or slide it onto the top of the bag. My favorite card of this bunch is the red one, It has boots on the front and the inside says "You can deal with anything in the right pair of shoes". It just reminded me of my friend Martha, who's basement always floods. The skirts are dress ups for Sheridan, I'm a big fan of Fancy Nancy and decided to make her a Nancy inspired skirt. I do love doing all this stuff, I just have so much fun.

I love stopping by your blog, and it is soooo cute but I have a hard time reading it with the crinkly background. Maybe it's just because I am getting older but I really want to read your blog.

You go, crafy crafterson! I haven't been in touch with my crafty roots lately. I need to get on the ball. Especially, when it comes to scrapbooking. I have two pages done in Porter's scrapbook and they are both ultrasound pages. I'm still thinkin' about going to the midnight showing, but I need to buy my ticket soon. I think my cousin Molly might come and I still think you should come. I also think all the girls should just go, we could even slumber at my house afterward. Even though it is quite the dark trek to get out here.
