Holiday Mani!

I really like these nail polish strips from Sally Hansen. They are so shiny and Christmasy and typically last over a week! I love painted fingernails, but hate how they only last a day. I'd love to try a gel manicure, but I'm nit ready to take the plunge. They look wicked hard to take off and I'm afraid of damage to my nails. This is a happy medium. They remove easily as well with acetone polish remover.

Christmas stitching!

Some sweet designs called "Colorful Christmas" from Embroidables.

Hope you will soon have all your projects complete and will be able to relax as we celebrate the last fee days of the Christmas season (Or do you just keep thinking up more and more projects like me? hee hee).

Merry Christmas!

Gift Tags for Christmas

I got a but carried away with Christmas gift tag-making. Joy and I found it rather addictive. I got started with a crafty day with my girlfriend, then just kept going!

Here are my cricut cuts which I am entering into the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2:

Winter Woodland, Plantin Schoolbook, and Tags, Bags, Bodes, and More were the various cartridges used. I was so pleased with the look of the vellum on the tags from WW. I embossed some with the cuttlebug as well.

Here's the embossed vellum:

I used a Scrappy Moms stamp on this one (and it's actually a card, too):

Another WW:

TBBM and I stamped and embossed on the vellum:

If you are feeling crafty, tags are sure to be satisfying--if not a bit addictive! :)

A cute way to mend!

Saw this adorable idea on Pinterest from & how funny is it that I was a little excited to find a pair of Joy's jeans that were ripped on the knees?
