Best Birthday yesterday!

 Yesterday was my Birthday and i had a wonderful day with friends and family! First we were able to bring my dog Amy home from the vet because she had to stay overnight for 2 days to do some test on her because she had been having trouble with her tummy for a few weeks. So to be on the safe side and all turned out GREAT! It was such a relief that she will be fine and all her test came out perfect.So I was so happy to go pick her up in the morning and she was so happy to see me!

 Then we all went to dinner for my Birthday and invited 2 of my dear friends ,Mom and my brother. We went to a place called wild wings and it was Delicious and we all had a great time!

 Then we all went to cold stones for dessert and I was in heaven! I love Ice cream and so did everyone else. It was a great day for me and thank you everyone for a wonderful Birthday!

P/S we did get a little scrapbook shopping and my order of goodies came !

A Birthday Wish

  Today is a special persons Birthday and I want to wish her a wonderful day and may God give her many more to come! I want her to know She means the world to me and I am blessed to have her as my friend!

I want to share this poem I found with her on her special day!

An Angel Named Mary Ann
© Summer Matlick
I have the greatest friend on earth
Family by god but not by birth
I owe her a lot for all she has done for me
Without her in my life I am not sure where I'd be
We will be best friends forever until we die
We have certain jokes that no one would understand but her and I
Together we share our life story
We look for good in others glory
She is amazing every single day
I admire and look up to her in every way
She understands me and I don't have to explain
She brings her sunshine to the rain
Someone sent by god to do great things
One of heaven's angels with no visible wings
If you ever meet Mary Ann then you will see
Why she is the definition of the greatest friend to me.
Mary Ann, thanks for always being there for me
You have shown me just how best friends should be!

Your BFF

Happy Birthday !

Sympathy card

I made this acrylic card the other day for our veterinarian because her father passed away a few week back. She is so wonderful to our dogs.  We had another visit to the vet and I gave it to her. She really loved it ! I love to give homemade cards to people, I love the look on their faces when they ask me "did you make this?" I tell them yes I did and they tell me they love it even more.

 I can not believe only 3 more days until Christmas! I also want to thank everyone who has joined in on my New years giveaway and all the wonderful memories they have shared with me. It is going to be really hard for me to choose! Tell your friends to join in  there is still 10 days to left!

My BFF layout

 I just wanted to share with you a beautiful layout my dear friend Mary Ann did for the little Yellow Bicycle. She is on the design team and this is what she created for their blog. I absolutely love this page its with her daughter Gracie when she was only 13 months and it was her first visit to the snow. You can take a look at her other layout she did HERE
She is an amazing scrapbooker and she inspires me every day. She has taught me so much in this craft and always encourages me in what ever I do. I am so lucky to have her as my friend!

Only 11 more day left until Christmas !

Old fashioned Popcorn Garland

 This is what me and my neighbor did today after we went shopping. We made popcorn garland.We popped the popcorn then we sat on the kitchen table and both had remembered when we did this as kids during Christmas time. I wanted to add the garland to my tree to give it a more old fashioned look. I think it came out really nice. I love spending time with my neighbor especially when we are being crafty!

 This afternoon me and my neighbor went to go buy these old fashioned Christmas lights I had seen at Wal-mart and I had to have them for next year. They are flickering candle led lights. Way back before there was electricity they would light their Christmas trees with candles but it was dangerous, but that's how they did it in the older days. I had seen some like these a long time ago so when I saw them I had to get them because they were almost all gone, but I bought 4 box's!

Only 12 more days left until Christmas!

My studio christmas tree

 OK I finally finished decorating my tree and put up a few decorations over the weekend. I made the garland on my tree and made a couple of bows all made from burlap. I made strips of the burlap and folded it to make pleaded look, yes I can use a sewing machine! lol... I have a Jerome sewing machine for scrapbooking & crafts I had bought a while back when I was working in a scrapbook store. I  used my Moms sewing machine this time. I love the holidays and because only 17 more days until my birthday!

Santa shadow box

 Here is a small Santa shadow box I did yesterday that my neighbor gave me a while back. I used what I had from my Christmas stash and this is what I came up with. I added some cotton snow I had from my tree to fill in the box and give it more of a 3d look. I need to get busy cause I am way behind in making cards and gift card holders, so I think I need to have a mini craft day with my friends this week!

Merry X-Mas Everyone

Christmas frame

 Here is a little frame my Mom had bought me from the swap meet a few weeks back and she said, maybe you can use this to make something. She was right. So this is what I did this morning and I wanted to share this and all I use is what I had left over from my Christmas stash of left overs. I'm glad I save left over pieces, cause they come in handy. This what I came up a frame with a little Christmas cheer. My tree is finally up in my studio and I will post pictures by tomorrow.
  It looks like we are going to get rain here in Cali...finally winter is arriving and it has been very cold here at night and I love it! I love the rain!

Enjoy your Sunday !

Mason jar light

  OK I have wanted to make a Mason jar light so I finally did! I came out really cool and I added a nest inside to give it a little vintage touch. I had seen some similar on line and some stores where selling them in all sizes and making the into a chandelier styles but I wanted to see if  I could make one by its self. I went to Ikea and bought the light fixture and I have a collection of nests and bird eggs already. I have jars so I went ahead and made a couple to see if I can. I did the smaller one with tiny Christmas light I had bought, and they almost look like fire flys in a small jar.Different colored light will look cool for Christmas time and I think I might just make some!
