Wow, what day is it?? Look, I made FLOWERS!

Hi all...well apparently I missed  Wednesday all together! My days are starting to run into each other like one huge cluster.  I'm starting to think I DO need sleep! It's after 6am and I'm still up. I just can't go to sleep at night and then WHO can sleep all day???  Too much to do right?  but I love working in my craft room and creating is my obsession right now!

While I was waiting for sleep to catch me, I created this set of 6 flowers. Can you guess what I used to make them with? I think they turned out awesome!! I will be making more of these soon, just cause they were fun  and I think they will add to my projects.  I love 'em!  They are about 2" without measuring the length of the leaves. 2 of them have lace for leaves while the other 4 have prima leaves. They are ALL a brilliant white, I'm not sure why some of them look like their off white.
What do you  think??? Comments appreciated.
Wanna see them?? lol  ok here they are... (Hope you  like them.)

If enough interest I might put a tutorial on youtube soon.


THANKS SO MUCH THESE FLOWERS SOLD!

TGIF!! Video time, complete side pocket mini

Hello...I am so glad to report that my puppy, who now has a name..."Gabie", is doing sooo much better. She is up, eating and playing! I think she is going to make it!! Sure did give us a scare!!!  But all is well, and I had a few minutes earlier to video tape the completed mini I promised to show you all. It is made using the side pocket pages from last weeks tutorial. I think I made it tooo chunky though, I used 4 of the pages and I think 3 would have sufficed. :)  I also added lots of added tags, huge brads, flowers and lots of bling which helped in making it chunky-up...lol  so without further-ado here is the video. Hope it inspires you to create, create, create.

Oh...one more thing, for those of you who asked, the kit is in process. I will have a video on the items included, so check back with me, I should have it up no later than Sunday. 

Have a Blessed Weekend!!

Wednesday and I'm still on the baby kick! It's bath time...

Hi all, today was a very productive day for me. I had an order for a vacation album which I started yesterday and am glad to report that it will be completed tomorrow! yay! I had a few problems with this book mainly cause I don't do many travel/vacation themed, type of books so the creative juices were slow to flow! But I think it's turning out really great, as soon as it's complete I will share.
My visit to Gigi's was a no go this past weekend. "Life" got in the way, so I'll have to reschedule that road trip.
Now for the creations...I think I'm stuck on baby items. They are just so cute to create!!!
 These pieces are on both - Ebay under user Justafeww and on -  Etsy under Bluetwilight .
I hope you get some kind of inspiration from them... The measure approx 4" x 4"
I took the pink paper and ran it thru my bigshot and embossed it with the "dots" folder.
I'm not sure what is called, but it puts all those little dots on the paper, i thought it looked like bubbles! too cute!!
This cutie was colored in with copic markers...too cute!

Thanks for stopping by...Huggs Elsa 
Look for my Friday tutorial!

Wednesday...Baby Bear Numbers

Hi, it seems since I am posting every other day, the days are coming at me faster! lol I 've been working on these little bears to use for baby's first 6 months, or first six years, first 6 days...you decide and believe they turned out just adorable and so did many of my local friends, who requested them in different colors.
.
So I've decided to give it a try and post them for sale in 4 different colors...Blue, Pink, Yellow or Green. They will be shipped within 4 days of order, (or sooner) since I will create them as the orders come in.  Here is a set in green, the flowers may vary and so will the little bear facial expressions since they hand painted, but not by much. Stickles, chalk, glossy accents and distressing is used on this little guys. I take great care in packageing them and will send you and email upon completion of your set.

If you would happen to want 1 - 12 instead of only 1-6 just order 2 sets and email me with your specific request at  --   justafeww@gmail.com 

 
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the week and God Bless!!

Monday and OHH What BIG eyes you have!

Hiya...so, great 4th of July? Mine was! We had our kids and grandkids all together and we ate some really good food.  Ended the night with a lil'firework action in my front yard. Brandon loved it! It was a nice change from us driving downtown to the beach to see the pros put on a display...which is always awesome, but fighting the crowds after you spend fifteen minutes looking for parking is not very awesome.  Instead we stood around and did them ourselves. It brought back such wonderful memories for me, since that is how we used to do it when my girls were little.  All in all, it was a Blessed day and we have all those soilders who fought for our independance to thank! 

Ok...on with the craft.  Here to show is this set of 3 big eyes babies. lol too cute!


 I have always drawn big eyes on my creations. Mom said it was because I had such big eyes my self that I found it normal for everything else to have huge eyes! I don't know if that is the case or not, but looking back on all my drawing, everything I drew had huge eyes indeed! lol too funny.
 
Thanks for stopping by!!
