Stamp Case Notebooks

I saw this idea on Angie's blog and immediately thought these would make awesome gifts for the grandkids. They are made using Stampin Up stamp cool is that!!! They both loved them and started writing on the notebooks as soon as they opened them up on Christmas Day.
This is what the inside looks like. Complete with a matching little pen that I found at Wal-Mart!!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog!
Have an awesome day!

Christmas cards for grandkids

Ubfortunately I didn't find the time to make my Christmas cards this year but did make a couple for the grandkids. They love getting mail so these are the cards I came up with for them. They are both made with the Action Wobbles. I got the idea to make the cute little Santa over on Sarah's blog so the Santa head wobbles and then added one to the reindeer so he "dances" too.
Here is Cody's card:
And here is McKenzie's card:

Thanks for checking on my blog!!

Gift sets

Here are some gift sets I made for some friends at work. I watched a U Stream with Momo where she showed how to make all of these things and I couldn't wait to make some for my friends and co-workers. Each one was made specifically for that person either with a monogram or their favorite team and they were a huge hit!!! I  made the pink princess one for my adorable granddaughter, McKenzie.
THANKS Momo for the idea!!!! They were so fun to make...very addictive!!!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Goodie Bags for Granddaughter's Class

Here are some goodie bags I made for my granddaughter's first grade class...very quick and easy!! I added each child's name to the top of the stockings. I kept them pretty simple because I knew that they would probably be much more interested in what was inside than how much decorating was done on the outside!! LOL

Gifts for bus drivers

I made these little post it note holders for the bus drivers for the school where I work. Added a few Hershey kisses and put them in little cello bags and added a topper. I even customized each one and included their bus number on the back of the little buses. I also included a sentiment on the back, "Thanks for transporting our precious cargo!" They loved them!!!


Decorated Glass Blocks

WOW I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted anything. The past few weeks have been kind of a blur!! LOL Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and I wish everyone a Happy New Year!!!

Thought I would share somethings I have been working on the past few weeks. These are some decorated glass blocks that I made for some gifts and then of course I made one for me and one for my office!! My husband thought I had lost it when I told him I wanted him to drill some holes in the glass blocks but I assured if he would just drill the holes for me he would like what the end result would be!! They all turned out so pretty and everyone that I gave one to loved them. They were quite the topic of conversation at my office too and even had some people say that would buy some if I would make some more. They were so fun to make!! I even have an idea to make one with snowflakes and a Let it Snow sentiment for January....the possibilities are endless!!
