What were all the dreams we shared...

Hello friends. I think my brain is working faster then my fingers. I keep making mistake after mistake. Anywhoo I made a video of me making my tin but I HATE it! I am tempted to make a new one but I don't think I can do a better job so maybe I should just post it in all its ugoness and bad sound. We shall see...

My goal is to get 25 handmade ornaments on my blog and links or tutorials on how to do them. After all this is the season for sharing. Right? I have one felt one almost finished and many many more in the works. For now here are some I actually started before thanksgiving.

This is another tin. I call it Christmas in my pocket. I think this is my new fav thing to make. So fun and easy...says me anyway.






Made this ornament and gave it to my cousin because she really liked it. You can get those little tins at the dollar store. 3 for 1.00 they make great handmade gifts.




I went to the girls night out crop a few Fridays ago and had a wonderful time. Ginger, Diane, Crystal, and Kristi were all there. Woot! Love scrapin with those ladies. It is soo cool when you meet people on the internet become friends and actually get to hang out with them IRL. My cousin and I tried our hand at a jar scene. Holly totally inspired me with hers and just made me want to do it even more. I wanted to light mine up tho and talked to my cousin. She went and bought a glass drill bit and we began on our adventure. It took us FOREVER to drill a hole into the pickle jar. It wouldn't have been so bad if the bit was bigger but it wasn't big enough for the lights to fit in we had to kinda drill the sides until it got bigger. NOT FUN! Here is the finished jar.



Then I made a small one that doesn't light up. I wanted a place for my little dear that has been sitting in my junk for over a year now.



He IS a little creepy but cute. Love it. The next GNO crop is Dec 11th. Come crop with me!

Very cute projects! I totally know what you mean about videos. I always think "oh it will be so much fun" and then I get nervous and realize that I don't have a proper microphone and all that jazz. Someday though!
