More pocket calendars

This year I decided to create some religious ones:

And, of course, some of my sassy ones. I'll be making a dozen or so more using this CTMH stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Post-it Note Holders

This design has been around for a while. The holders are covered chipboard with a metal clip, and a matching mini pen. Easy gifts for co-workers and you can use up your scraps!

Just a Note

I've been working all week on craft fair items. Today's post shows my little note pads with matching magnetic clothes pin and mini pen.

For the gardeners:

This red/black lady bug one is my favorite design:

Have fun shopping today! I'll be at the 23rd Annual Islandwide Christmas Crafts & Food Expo at the Blaisdell Center which runs November 27 through 29th, Friday through Sunday. Fri: 5-10p, Sat: 10a - 10p, Sun: 10a - 5p. Stop by to say, Hi!

Baby's 1st Birthday card

I've had these font called DB Party Animals for a while and this monkey is from that font. All I had to do was print it in any size I wanted, double mat with nesties, add stickles, TLC rubons and eyelets.

What a fast card this was!

Art Box 2009

At the suggestion of a colleague at work, I joined the Art Box 2009 Show, sponsored by Bering & James Gallery. Artists in Houston obtained an "art box" from B&J --which is basically a 12"x12" wood box -- and decorated the box to their desires. The Art Boxes are to be exhibited beginning Dec 4, 2009 and are available for sale. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Depelchin Center. I decided to go with a dog theme.

I'm excited to go see what all the different artists have done with their Art Boxes. I think I heard there are over 400 artists participating. I"ve posted closer details of portions of my box on my personal blog. Enjoy!

Kim Shaw - My tea swap partner

Let me brag a little about my November tea swap partner, Kim Shaw, an artist from California. Check out her blog here. I love her Tea paintings. Look at the beautiful card she sent me along with a tea pin and tea stickers. Oh, and 3 types of tea: Harrisons & Crosfield Tropical White (had this one this morning) and Raspberry Vanilla Tea, and Harney & Sons Passion Fruit Black Tea. I can't stop kicking myself because I literally shared a cup of tea with a very talented artist

Kim, thank you so much, and it is a pleasure to 'meet' you!

All About Keenan

Remember when you had to create a little poster about your child to share with his class? Well, I just finished little Keenan's and here it is, using up these embossed diecuts I have had in my stash. They are probably just as old as Keenan!

Altered Candle

GF Sherri gave me a bunch of these candles. The label was carefully pealed off, and redesigned with Nesties. I found these elegant cell phone stickers: one for the label and one for the tag.

Merry Christmas - Shoebox Card Swap

A little Merry Christmas card for the Shoebox Card Swap today. I can't believe the holiday season is upon us. The blue metal snowflake was purchased from Michaels approx 3 years ago and the metal Christmas tag from a Scrapper's Jam maybe longer than that. MS Arch border completes this quick gift card holder and Hero Arts Joy border stamp.
