Some of the ornaments I made for Christmas this year.
These were made using Frozen Charlotte Dolls that
I purchased from and were inspired by Lisa Pace.
These were inspired by Lisa Pace
but feature our own living doll Jozi Renee'.
This angel was made in honor of those precious children who
were killed in Newton, CT.
Thank you for looking. Have a fun and crafty day!

Create perfect borders and ribbons with the help of the Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System.
This easy to use product is the largest border punch on the market and punches deeper and larger shapes to give you the best looking paper crafts. The magnetic paper clamp holds your paper securely in place and the spring-action handle makes punching easier than traditional border punches.

This project was simple, and took an afternoon to complete. I used a (cheap) glue and water mix to adhere the dictionary pages. Dried. Then painted over it with white acrylic paint to soften it a bit. The bird and branch are made with acrylic paints and a reuseable stencil. Dried. Decided I didn't like a solid blue bird, so I daubed some reddish pigment ink on him with a makeup sponge. I printed the definition in upper right hand corner from internet, decopauged it and then added some white acrylic paint. Dried. The letters are wooden, painted (didn't like) then heat embossed (like). I punched the clouds with my Fiskars Squeeze Punches, thickly spread some caulk on the shape and "stamped" it on the canvas. Dried. I added some bubble wrap stamping, some tan paint, some bling, some embossed metal G45 accents, a brad and voila. I also highlighted "exhilerate" just above the Y with some of the tan acrylic paint. The canvas was $19.99 for 6 or 7 11X14s. The paint was 59 cents a bottle. The letters were 3 in a package for 99 cents a pack. I had the mettalics in my stash. The caulk was a single use package from Ollies and cost about a dollar ( sealed it in a ziplock bag - hoping to be able to use again). I have had it in my stash for awhile. The stencil was $2.99. This was not the project I had in mind, but I really like it and hung it in my living room.

Ali Edwards has a class over at Big Picture Classes that I plan to take this year. You can get more information here:
The hard part for me was figuring out what word to use. While reading an article about Fibromyalgia symptoms and relief, I saw the word "enjoy". I realized that I have noy been enjoying life much lately. I have not enjoyed my spouse, my craft, my pets... So, that is my word for 2013.
And my New Years resolution is to "ENJOY" life more. Also, to get back on track with my weight loss and exercise more - this will help me to enjoy life more. There, it is down in black and white, forever on the internet for all the world to see.
