As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a Coke...lol... and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

New Projects finished tonight

So, we finally got to get some of our Valentine Projects finished. 
I have pics, a lot of them. I made a mailbox for my sis for her birthday...it is on the 12th. My oldest daughter, H, and oldest son, N, made some for their friends. I took pics of H's today and will post them with mine and will post N's tomorrow. He made 2....one for each of the girls at church he "likes"...he is 8....lol...
anyway, here we go!
 
This is my daughter's mailbox she made for a set of twin girls she is friends with. 

 
She put one girl's initial on one end (using fabric Thickers and then covering them with stickles)

 
and one on the other end.

 
She used paper from Target's dollar spot (look familiar?LOL) Ribbon from American Crafts and Prima Flowers to decorate.

 
View of one side of mailbox flag.

 
Sorry, it is a little blurry. Close up of the other side.

 
Again, sorry for the blur, not sure what happened here...
This is the mailbox I made for my sis for her birthday...

 
This is the other side. I used 3D stickers from Soft Spoken to decorate the sides and ends.

 
This is a close view of the one side of the flag. It is 3 flowers punched from cardstock and patterned paper, attached together with stickles in the center.

 
The one end of the mailbox.

 
This is the other side of the flag. I used the flower punch again, and attached them together then added a cupcake sticker and used stickles on it to Bling it on...my sis will LOVE that!

 
This is the other end of the box. This came in the Soft Spoken package too...so, I put it on the back end of the mailbox. 
I am going to put some candy and a gift certificate in the mailbox along with some shredded paper to make it  more "partylike".
So, what do you think?
