what adorable projects!!!


jessica said...

WOW!!! Joe this is awesome! LOVE the adorable owls and the details you added in each of the trays is so fun!!! Such a GREAT project!!
My favorite Christmas memory is not from growing up but from when my kids were just little but able to help decorate the tree....there is one ornament in particular that they argue over who gets to put on the has become somewhat of a tradition to place this ornament on the tree last and to rotate every year who gets to put it up :)
Merry Christmas!!!

Unknown said...

Your projects are fantastic and amazing. Such detail! So charming. Thanks for sharing. My favorite Christmas memory is when we cousins would still get together for a Christmas meal (usually on New Year's Day)

Donna K said...

Love both of your projects, Joe! I am anxious to try a hand at my first "printer's tray" project.

My favorite Christmas memory is that of opening just one gift on Christmas Eve and anxiously waiting for the next morning to open the rest. Simple days, simple memories...those are best.

I look forward to following your blog in the New Year!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!!

TeresaK said...

Joe - you never cease to amaze me! That printers tray is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I just love how it turned out!
And that little tree - the way you altered it and that tree topper - makes me want to rush over to Michael's and get one myself!
My favorite Christmas memory from growing up? Going to my Aunt's house for Christmas afternoon/evening - playing with my older cousins that I did not get to see that often! The kids would all gather in the basement and have such fun!
Merry Christmas!

Beautiful detail on the tray. New follower. I'll never forget opening up my 4 foot tall stuffed animal toy (that probably someone won at the fair). Made my Christmas as a little girl.

Karon said...

Joe - these creations are fabulous. I love the printers tray all those fabulous papers. And your tree with the itty bitty owl at the top is awesome. My memory of Christmas growing up has to be when I was about 8. I was allowed the turkey leg on my dinner plate and I ended up with gravy all over my face LOL!! Have a fabulous Christmas and A Happy New Year.

My fav Christmas memory...I was around 9 or 10 years old and on Christmas Eve while I was trying to go to sleep, I heard Santa's jingle bells. :)

Karenladd said...

Wow, I absolutely love your owl shadowbox! All the little details like the lights and snow make it special! Your tree is so cute too, love that owl topper! As for my favorite Christmas memory, that would be my son's first Christmas. We didn't have much money, but we were all together and that was wonderful. My son is now 31 and I still remember that first Christmas like it was yesterday! I'm already a follower of yours!

Jessica Buffa said...

Ehrmagerd Joe! These are both super terrific. I absolutely ADORE that printers tray with all the fun "scenes" in each panel. That faux snow looks wonderful. Your projects are always such a delight. Super talented my friend, super talented! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Sugarlips said...

AWESOME projects!! I really love the tray. I want to try one but I am way too chicken. I wouldn't want to ruin it. My favorite Christmas memory is the first Christmas my daughter was old enough to open presents, I will never forget her face opening everything.

Gail said...

Hi Joe - I really like the fireplace in the box on your first project - your tree is adorable too - my best Christmas memory is when my daddy used to pretend he was Santa and had just stopped and left gift under the tree - he would yell - HO, Ho, Ho - most of the 7 of us were already up before dad got up so we knew Santa had already been there - I miss my dad- he died at the age of 52 - too young to leave this earth - thanks for a chance to win your blog candy Joe -Have a great day and Merry Christmas too! Thanks for the hop!

SHartl said...

I always love your projects and this shadowbox is so cute! Love the fun colors you used and all the 3-D accents! Your wooden tree is also adorable. My favorite Christmas memories are of the handmade ornament that my Mom made me every year. She always let me chose the theme and I chose owls 2 years in a row! So you can see that I'm an old-time owl fan from way back!

Lori Comeau said...

Fantastic job on your projects. I just love the printer tray.
Merry Christmas.

Angela Crafty Spot said...

Great projects!! My favorite memory is getting up Christmas morning to see what Santa left and then getting to spend all day playing with my new toys!

ScrappinAnn said...
