Wedding Present

I am attending a wedding soon, and guess what? I do not have a present. that I am getting crafty, I thought about making one. Where are some ideas posted? I have seen a card box (I am not in the party, so that is not doable). I saw a picture frame...What else could there be?

Honey Bee Corner Kits

Have you seen a project that you like and wish you had someone give you everything you need to make it? After all, the project is cute and why change it?

Honey Bee Corner offers several kits. Currently they have four vintage kits and two Halloween kits available. Each kit includes the materials needed to create the project, a template, and an instructional video. In addition, you have access to online classes and a video to show you step-by-step instructions for completing the project. New kits become available each month.

Want to use your own products and just purchase the pattern? This option is available also. Check out the current kits and watch for new items in September.

Christmas Calendar

Ok, so I have not gotten the hang of how to upload pictures of projects in my own blog!

I wanted to show you a Christmas calendar I made. So...let me just tell you how I did it. I bought thirteen 4X6 pieces of chipboard. (You can just use 12X12 sheets and cut them yourself -- might be cheaper.) Then I wrote down on a scrap piece of paper 25 things I would do in the month of December. This was a tough one - I could think of some but not all. Then, I cut paper and covered the chipboard. Based on the theme for the day, I added stickers, ribbon, or other embellishments, along with the date and the topic for the day.

Some of my items included: Watch Elf, decorate the tree, buy your White Elephant Christmas gift, buy a gift for someone less fortunate, and last but not least, Happy Birthday Jesus.

If you make this yourself, be creative. Have fun. And have lots of glue!
