Snack/Sandwich Containers

These face designs from the Provocraft Cricut Cartridge Paper Play just struck me as funny. The font is from the Cricut Cartridge Type Candy. You have now been warned - I have a weird sense of humor!

Teacher Gift - 1st Grade Rocks Bucket



Fill with your teacher's favorite things. This bucket will surely serve double duty as a gift then as a storage container on the teacher's desk. Ribbon is from May Arts. Cricut Cartridges used are Recess Lite & Mickey's Font.

More Yard Art

This collection of magnets and the metal wreath are from the Roundtop Collection. I sprayed all of them with clear acrylic before I placed the wreath outside. Check my earlier posting for more yard art.

Pencil Boxes for Rachel & Emily

I used the Pazzles machine to create these. I love that you can use any font that you already have on your computer with the Pazzles to make each gift truly personalized.

College Inspired Wine Glasses

Show your College colors

Bride Eco Tumbler/Cup with Straw Bling



For the Bride. A decorated insulated Eco-Cup with straw for the Bride to use on her day. And what would a Bride Cup be without some Straw Bling! I used the Provocraft Cricut Craft Room to create this cup. The cartridges used were Formal Occasion and Sophisticated. The Straw Bling was made from a piece of costume jewelry. I have had the pleasure of making this cup in various color combinations for many Brides. I would be happy to make one for you. I sell these cups for $8.00

Custom Order Wine Glasses for the Dream Team








I was tickled when I received a request to do a custom order for a lady who wanted to honor the gals who helped her make the school year special. She calls her gals the Dream Team. To make each wine glass individual to each gal their favorite colors were used along with a favorite activity. Bethany likes music, Kristie is a UF Gator fan, Amy is a NY Jets fan, Carrie is a FSU fan, Angie likes the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kelly loves the beach. The wine glasses had Dream Team and the years served on the back. All the glasses were cello-bagged and tied off with a ribbon. I understand they were a hit. It was my pleasure to create the designs and glasses.

A Walk thru my Garden









I LOVE Yard Art . The red truck and patriotic eagle are from the Roundtop Collection. The silverware mobile came from a friend. The old red saw was found in our shed. I painted the Garden sign and the architectural piece was made from recycled wood pieces I collected from various sources. The flowers are a reminder to smile and enjoy everyday.

Hair Candy


Pretty silk flower Hair Clips. Take the flowers apart and remove the plastic center. Reassembled the flowers and replace the plastic center with a piece of costume jewelry. I used E-600 to glue the flower petals back together and to glue the Melissa Frances jewelry embellishments onto the flowers. The flowers were then hot glued to a hair clip. Love the Bling!
