Christmas Party Invites!

The Lee house holds a Christmas Party every year. Each person brings a new wrapped ornament and we each draw a number and we basically fight over the ornaments one at a time.  I made the invites this year to look like a ornament.  I used patterned paper from Stampin Up.

Chrstmas Cards!!!!!

I have been so laxed in blogging lately, I broke my netbook screen, My hubby got a new laptop so here I am.  I used several colors for my Christmas Cards this year, my Aunt Debra made a card several years ago I saw it on my last visit and I just could not get the design out of my head, so with her permission and help I think I did a good job. Materials used were, Stampin up paper in Choc Chip, Real Red, Old Olive. The ribbon is Real Red also from Stampin Up! The snowflake was cut out with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot.

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! We had a good time despite the rain. Here are some pic's from the night. We host a Halloween party for all the friends and family that come to trick or treat in the neighborhood. I made Candy Corn bags that had popcorn and M&M's, (candy and corn). I also made them just very simple treat bags. I saw a similar candy corn candy holder on Clear Dollar Stamps blog.

Operation Christmas in full force!

I have been trying to finish my Halloween crafts for the kids, but everytime I get started I think of something else I want to do for a Christmas Gift.
I found on , the cutest card holder, I changed the size a little and the look.  I love to bake and I know a few others that also share the love of cooking, so I made a vamped up recipe card.  I used Sweet Stack paper, and a corner rounder, and my wonderful husband used illustrator, and made me a SVG file for the front.  I also had him make me a signature stamp to put on my products. I will share the SVG file with you for free. Enjoy your download.

A Goody-Goody Gumdrops Stampin Up set found a new home!

I have wanted the Goody Goody Gumdropsset for a while but you had to spend a ton to get it. Not me, I found it on Ebay for less than $10.00. It had never been used. I loved putting my stamps together.  Welcome home my new beloved stamp set!
     After a couple of trying weeks I was not sure that I wanted to have anything to do with Stampin Up! I came to my senses and knew there was a talented demonstrator out there for me. I will share her work at a later date. I love Stampin Up! I love my new demonstrator!

Happy Halloween!!!!!

I love Halloween, Taylor and I were not allowed to trick or treat as kids, so the first year in our home we went all out.  Taylor and I both love to decorate for it.  I have a great neighborhood to trick or treat in so all of our friends bring their kids to our house and we make a party out of it. Here are the invites that I sent to all the kids this year, Thank you to my Aunt Debra and Adam for helping me get the windows right, and I love the ghost and cat Adam put together, I put the idea in my head and I love the end results.  I used the Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot, also Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch for the inside. Sure Cuts A Lot is the best thing ever invented.

Twin Girls Baby Shower!

My dear friend Jennifer is expecting twin girls and Jodi and I threw her a cupcake and polka dot shower.  I really had fun with this shower.  I am a detailed person, very driven to do my best.  She got tons of great stuff and she deserved it.  She is such a blessing in my life and I love her dearly, her husband even left me a very sweet message on my facebook yeaterday thanking me for all my hard work.  It makes all the hours spent on the little things so worth it. Here are some pics from the shower. A huge, I mean huge thank you to my wonderful Aunt Debra for doing the invites, and Jodi, it was a pleasure working on this shower with you. Almost forgot thank you to mom, Kendall and Lily for helping me get all the cupcake picks done. Also I recieved a sweet gift from Jennifer for giving her a shower.
This is Jennifer
These are the favor boxes with pink cupcakes with a "Thanks a Bunch and the date" sticker to match

We spent over 8 hrs. baking cupcakes. 200 cupcakes, We made white with vanilla buttercream icing, Banana cupcake with honey, cinn frosting, chocolate with chocolate buttercream icing, coconut with cream of coconut squeezed inside, with coconut buttercream icing, and lemon with lemon glaze.
I ordered the polka dot balloons online. I am in love with them.

I painted this block. It took forever, it will be a one of  a kind.

I made the banner, it is my favorite project so far. She will be putting this up in there room.

Cupcake picks for all the cupcakes
