New Glass Pendants

In addition to my oblong 1x2 inch pendants, I'm now making these cute little square ones that measure 1x1 inch.
Being smaller just makes everything cuter doesn't it?

The Cat is Served

Gomez is what I call the Cat Ambassador to dogs. I've never seen a more calm and controlled cat around dogs, really he should represent worldwide. But he wasn't quite as giving with Hannah, she got a bit of a hiss. Problem being is that Hannah is a little *ahem* exuberant in her play and startles Gomez just a tad.

Frosty Flight

I saw this on Ellen Huston's site and just had to make one for myself, it was so creative and adorable.

The little village is made from a Martha Stewart punch, I really haven't bought any thing from Martha's line because some of it was so overpriced but I have to admit I am loving her punches and glitter.

These must be four rogue reindeers, since Santa and the other 4 seem to be missing.

Eye peek

Morticia likes to burrow between things. Her favorite past time is when I sweep and flip over the carpets to clean underneath, she slinks into the tunnel formed when I flip.

This is not a carpet as you can see ;-) Just some pillows on the bed


The little houses reminded me so much of Whoville from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, now I just wish I had little Whos to add. There is glitter (of course) on top of the houses and I had to control myself from not adding more. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly', adorable set.

All things that sparkle

The holiday season makes me a little giddy over all things sparkly. Ritz Camera (of all places) has a really great selection of crafting stuff at 20% off thru November so I decided to order some Glimmer Mists.

I only ordered three colors; Mimosa, Red Velvet & Suede and they are so pretty and shimmery in their bottles I expect everything to be splattered with them soon. I see a whole new collection in my future of these beautiful colors.

Space Saver

My "craft room" is actually a craft "space", it sits off to the side in my bedroom. With the more shiny and new things I.MUST.HAVE the more space I'm losing. I've organized a lot of my stuff in those stackable plastic storage containers and I just really don't like the way they look.

I saw a cute little shelving/cube mish mash at Target that I.HAD.TO.HAVE.
It came in quite handy, I was able to empty out a whole tower of plastic storage with a little rearranging and now I have everything available right in front of me. (We won't talk about that I still have 2 remaining towers left, shhh).

I also put up a single shelf to the left, but didn't have it set up when I took this picture.

Flower Bouquet

I just ordered this little adorable item from Doodlebug Design. I'm all giddy to get and decorate, I think of course it has to involve glitter.

Blurb about the item: Doodlebug’s Plain and Simple line makes it easy to create one-of-a-kind papercrafted masterpieces—without all the work! This whimsical flower bouquet is constructed of sturdy white-core chipboard and comes ready to embellish. Each piece has been die-cut for easy assembly. Included is an instruction sheet with all the details you’ll need to assemble the vase and flowers.

Little image search in Google and I found this completed one that some talented person had finished. How cute is this?!

Do you know what I love about crafting?

That I have a valid excuse to play with glitter.

I've been coveting the Martha Stewart glitters and what better excuse to purchase than Christmastime?

I ran across a tutorial online about watercolor painting with Distress Inks, SO much fun. These two were my first try; that I was satisfied with at least as you should see my trash can. Stamped on watercolor paper and painted and glittered!
