Really cool clock and some other stuff

I found this clock at Hobby Lobby. I bought it for my son. When I walked by it just screamed at me "Jason". You ever find gifts like that? I love it when I do. Anyway, I saw it and figured that since clocks were on sale the next week, I would wait and get it then. 3 days later, when the 50% off sale started, they were gone!!! But I got a rain check and had one ordered for me. I just love the odd, funky style of it. Reminds me so much of my oldest son!!

For my other son, I made this glass block with a Minnesota Vikings helmet etched on it. I glittered the inside with purple glitter. I wanted to put a light in it but it looks stupid so I am just leaving it how it is. I hope he likes it, even if his team is doing poorly this year!

A wonderful blogger named Brandy made the vinyl stencil for me. She did such a great job. Exactly what I wanted. You can see her work here:
Thanks Brandy!!

Then I had to make a birthday card for my granddaughter. I just got the gingerbread cartridge and wanted to play with it. It has some cute images on it. I am not totally happy with this card but it will work in a pinch.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did. I am getting very tired of leftovers, tho. Except the pie. Can eat that everyday!!!
This is about all I have to post today. I am babysitting the grandkids tomorrow so I know I won't be doing any crafting. Maybe Wednesday before I go to work at 5 I will be able to play a little!!

I am sooo absent minded!!!

I just got done wrapping the Christmas presents I have done so far. I was happy to have that much done so I wouldn't have to do them all at once. But, as soon as I was done I realized I didn't take a picture of the mini album and the picture frame I made for my daughter!!! I was going to post them on here. Duh!!! When she opens them, I will remember to take pics. Or maybe I will unwrap them- who knows! Ugh! I am so mad at myself!!!

Busy weekend!!!

Whew! I will be glad when it is Monday!! That is my day off. Sunday and Monday makes it nice cuz I have one day at home with hubby and one day to myself!!Really didn't do any crafting this weekend. Work is getting busier at Hobby Lobby and I am pretty wiped out when I get home at night. Went to Kohls Friday night to get a gift for my granddaughters 1st birthday party today. That was fun, I got to see ALL of my grandkids at one time! That only happens on Holidays and birthdays.Then I went to WalMart and ordered my new glasses. They should be here in abput 6 days. I can't wait to be able to see again!!
Here are some pictures from the birthday party. Isn't she just a sweetie?

Hopefully I will get some crafting done tomorrow so I can put up some new projects!

Brother for sale!!

I just made this onesie for my granddaughter. Her 1st birthday party is next Sunday. When I was setting it up for a picture, I noticed it is kinda crooked. Ugh! I am so angry, but for a 1 year old, it will work. It will have to, I don't have enough time to get more iron on vinyl before next Sunday!! :(

I also took a picture of one of the cocoa holders I made today. The gingerbread men are my favorite!

Sorry, I know my pictures are terrible!!
I also did some sock cupcakes yesterday and here is one of them!

wow! The lighting is really bad. It is pink (the socks) and the wrapper is shiny sparkly dark pink.

Tomorrow when I can get some daylight, I will take pictures of my mini album!


Been busy!

Wow! It has been awhile since I posted anything! I have been crafting, tho. I have been making a mini album for my daughter. t is made with pictures from the party we had for her in September. I am ALMOST done. I have to add some more glur on some of the pages and maybe some more embellishments. I have never made a mini like this before. It was fun but I wish mine would have turned out like the other beautiful ones I have seen on other blogs. I did realize one thing- good, quality paper makes so much difference. I used some K&Co. double sided paper for most of the pages and I LOVE it!
I have also been making some hot cocoa holders for the stockings. They turned out really cute.
I am trying to make a CD clock for my son, and a glass block light for my other son. I need a Minnesota Vikings logo for that and I don't have scal or mtc. If anyone reads this and has either one of those programs, I would be so happy if you could cut it for me. I could send you the image I want and the vinyl. Heck, I would even be willing to pay for it!!
I wiil post pictures later. My room is too much of a mess to take pictures now!! LOL
My weight loss thing hasn't been too successful. I didn't lose anything last week. We'll see what this Tuesday brings!
OK- check back tomorrow for pictures I am going to get busy cleaning this room!!
