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!

A few newer projects

So, I am working on some cards and such and know I need to get some more pics of my most recent projects.
Here are a few I made in the last month or so...





I LOVE these clips...I think they turned out very well! They are for holding photos or recipes.



Made these when the Steelers won the AFC Championship.....but, alas, no SuperBowl Win!


These mailboxes were easy to make, once I had a template in place. I decorated them and then filled them with Hershey's miniatures and kisses. They are excellent for putting a gift card in with a litttle gift.

Well, that is all for now. Have to get to work making some more things for my shop.
Leave me some love if you like!

  19. Wow! These are all great, Kristin! I love the mailboxes especially. Too cute! Thanks for following my blog and for leaving such a sweet comment. I have been a little remiss in checking out all the blogs posted on Momo's site due to other obligations but I make sure to reciprocate with those who visit mine if they leave me a link. I have been unable to find a few who haven't done so so if they read this comment, I hope they'll send me one so I can follow them too. Momo's such a sweetheart for doing this to help us all.

    I don't know how you manage to get any crafting done with homeschooling 5 kids but I admire you for doing it and for loving what you do. "See" you soon!

  40. Debican and Wendy, I got the mailboxes from Oriental Trading, they are chipboard. LOVE THEM! They come in a pack of 12. I am not sure if they are seasonal or not though. I removed the flag from the mailbox and traced it onto chipboard for a template. Then I did the same for the ends of the mailbox. The main part of the mailbox is just measured and cut, it is a basic rectangle.
    Thanks for all the love!
