Accent Pieces and LOTW!

Here are a few accent pieces I did for a swap I'm doing on SCS. Okay, my three favorite things, Bellas, Stickles, Copics!!!! I need to start breaking away from the Bellas a little bit!

And here are my beauties! I love how these turned out. This is my "P" for the month April....I papered pieced the boots to go with the letter.

Blogger 3 Group #3 Challenge

Here is my card for the challenge in our SCS blogger group! I'm not very impressed with it but I guess it's okay. We had to use two different patterned paper on each side, ribbon down the middle and then a stamped image. Of course...we got bellas!!!

Happy Holidays

It's been a while and honestly, I have no new crafting pictures to show because I have not been at my table in over a week. I keep looking over at it! So will be able to get some things done!

But here are a few pre-christmas pictures to share with you. I would say Christmas pictures but they are still on the camera. I'm behind in everything right now. Except schoolwork! That is a good thing! I had a week break last week so I was able to still do some work and get ahead! Yay for me!!!

Enjoy the pictures!

And please be aware, I am the worst picture taker ever! The pictures of our tree look horrible! I think I need to leave the picture taking up to my husband from now on!

This is 4 strings of German lights! They do not glow as bright as American lights do!

My dear husband working on our wreaths that go on the windows. He does such a great job!

In the kitchen. I totally lit up the shelf!!!

Diaper Cake

Last week I went to a baby shower and I decided to try a diaper cake. It was really really easy to put together and didn't take as long as I thought it would rolling all those diapers! I think it turned out okay. I will do some things differently next time but it's not too shabby! She is doing a jungle theme and I thought that Giraffee on the top was cute. It's basically an "essentials" cake with little things that we know we need, i.e.; baby oil, tylenol, desitin, along with some caps, onsies, socks and whatever else I missed! Next time I will be sure to get the diapers without a pattern on them. I think it will look a bit better!

Twisted Valentines Card Swap

So the idea for this swap that I am in, is to create a Valentines Day card that is not pink and red, or at least can not be the main colors of the card. I thought this would be fun and challenging! So here is my card!

This was the first time I have used my Loads of Love set. I always have this great idea in my head and then when I try to put it onto the just doesn't turn out the way I had imagined it would. But I think the card still came out okay! And I only used a bit of red and pink! The hardest part was cutting out the hearts and the truck. I'm not good at cutting things out. Too tedious for me!

We got all our Christmas decorations and tree up yesterday. The downstairs looks really pretty with all the lights! I will post some pictures as soon as I get some free time to upload them. I also had a few functions this weekend and pictures from that also!
