Owl Dry Erase/Magnetic boards

And this is one more made for the gal who sits right next to me at work. She loves owls:

I created a couple other different designs but with the stressful creating, I neglected to take pictures. Anyway, have a good one!

Merry Christmas!!

"I'm dreaming of a white christmas . . ."
eeekkkk . . . . , stop!
(trying to type the sound of the record player scratching to a stop here)

We have no snow in Hawaii but we do have:

double rainbows!

Just took these pictures the other day outside my office window. It's been raining a lot and very windy. We have lots of rainbows but it is the first time I took a picture of one! The first rainbow was so brilliant that it created the double.

As I look at these pictures, the Hawaiian Lullaby Song by Bradda Iz goes through my head:

Where I live, there are rainbows
With life in the laughter of morning and starry nights

Where I live, there are rainbows
And flowers full of colors and birds filled with song

I can smile when it’s raining
And touch the warmth of the sun
I hear children laughing in this place that I love

Merry Christmas!
May you have a wonderful day with family and loved ones.

Fish Club Cards

Here's a new one -- My parents belong to an aquarium fish club and for their holiday party, grab bags had to be "fish" related.

So I made a dozen fish cards along with Gold fish crackers, of course! I believe this die is an Archivers Quickutz die.

Notecard Teacher gift

Happy Holidays! It's been a long time! I've got lots of crafts to show you but I think I'll post them slowly to spread the season (because it's going by way too fast!!). So I'm all done with the craft fairs and now just getting my own shopping done.

For today, I'm sharing what I did for my kids' teachers. They are notebook cards that you quickly print, personalize and embellish. Someone shared this with me many months ago and I've kept the link knowing it will make great teacher gifts. (I'm sorry that I'm posting this too late since most schools are already on holiday break).

Here's the link to the original idea by Alicia. L-O-V-E I-T!! Please also check out her pinterest. She has WONDERFUL, absolutely wonderful ideas!! I didn't have to change a thing, other than I should have taken a little time to make sure my cutting was not off (see the extra white space on the bottom of this card?). Oh well, next time I'll be a little careful but other than that, I was able to finish these 30 cards in 2 hours (office lunch hours). Not bad, huh! I reused those plastic acrylic boxes that holds SU stamps. Place 10 cards and envelopes, a Starbucks gift card and handmade tags. BTW, the envelopes didn't fit in the box so they were placed on the bottom of the box and tied all together with ribbon.

As a side note, thank you to all who asked. I had a successful craft fair season and sold all the boards. The most popular, you ask? Hello Kitty, of course!! But I can't post pictures of that until Colleen opens her Christmas present (LOL!!! Hi, Colleen)!!

Happy Shopping!!!
