Little Gifts

Just wanted to share some fun gifts to make!

The first are altered clothespins.  For the glittered ones you'll simply cover one side of the clothespin with glue and then sprinkle some Maya Road glitter on top.

These ones are so fun...cover one side with glue and sprinkle glass beads on top.  Allow to dry and then spray with Maya Mist!

I like to add a strip of magnet to the back.  Decorate a glassine bag and tuck your clothespins in!


The Maya Road Small Organza Roses Ribbon makes a perfect headband.  Cut a piece of the trim the length you'd like and hand sew a small piece of elastic on both ends.

Most Blessed 545th Post Ever!!!!

I just noticed on my blog home page that this is my 545th post and I couldn't be more happier!!! Sixteen and a half years ago I was laying in a hospital bed not even caring if it was my last day on earth...I was so, SO sick.

Here is the link to the story

Now here I am posting a Christmas gift I just made for my Mom and Dad. I remember talking with my neurosurgeon after my brain surgery and I told him that I wasn't planning on having any more children after this "brain" ordeal I went through and he seemed disapointed!  He is sure happy to know that God added two more to our family!  I couldn't even imagine a day without Andrew and Emma.

God is SO good.

I even get to share a layout of me and my hubby...we've been married for 18 and a half years. 

Enjoy today, I know I will :)

Christmas Album

Here is a Christmas Album I made using a Maya Road 8 X 8 binder book and lots of fun paper from Simple Stories!

I left spots in the album for adding pictures and envelopes to tuck in some journaling.

Thanks so much,
