We are so happy you are here! Please be sure to start at the beginning at Heather Lynn's blog  so you don't miss out on a thing!  We have all made some super cute owl themed projects to share with you today! You will not only get some inspiration~ but you could win prizes, too! Heather Lynn is offering one hopper a really fun prize. You must FOLLOW and COMMENT at all of the stops to have a chance to win the Grand Prize! There will be lots of other candy offered along the way! Please take your time and visit all of the blogs! You have all weekend to do so. Please be sure to let us know at the last stop (at Pinque Peacock) that you followed the rules to be included in the random drawing for the Grand Prize!

I'm sure you have seen some CUTE owls this weekend!! I know I am going to enjoy getting to hop!! I have made so many handmade items as gifts this year and love what I do!! My personalized ornaments were a BIG hit this year, so before I could put away all the glitter, I had to make one more for the hop. I took a clear ornament I bought at Michaels and glittered the inside with Martha Stewart silver fine glitter. I used my cricut Hoot 'N' Holler cart and cut out FOWLALALALA with black vinyl and polka dots to put on the ornament. I used a vinyl owl sticker that I had gotten in an Owl swap on swap-bot above it. I used zebra chiffon ribbon and white tulle to hang it on my tree. I hope you have enjoyed yourself this weekend with all these talented crafters!!! I hope you have a BLESSED AND MERRY CHRISTMAS.

 Now you are off to TARA to see what OWLdorable item she has to show!!

Here is the wonderful line up we have for you this weekend!

DAY # 2

Hi and welcome to this Awesome Blogaversary blog hop for Ashley!! Welcome back for day #2. If you are coming from Cicily then you are in the right place. 
In this hop we had to make a card. It had to have one of the following themes incorporated in the project. 
Clean & Simple
Kraft Cardstock
Faux Stitching
Paper Piecings

Ok for day #2 I made a Christmas Card. I used my stamping up circle punch and punced out circles in pretty Christmas paper that I had in my stash ( I dont know what line it is). I lined them up around the card to represent a wreath. I made a flower for the top of the wreath with my flower punch from Mcgill. I cut out the word JOY with my cricut and put across the bottom. I did faux stitching around each circle. Simple easy card to give to someone this Christmas. 

I will have some blog candy to give away. It will be a surprise what you will receive. Think of it as an early Christmas gift from me to you. Please make sure that when you comment that you leave me a way of getting in touch with you. 
 I hope you are enjoying the hop  
Your next stop is Diana   

Here is the lineup just in case.

Hi and welcome to this Awesome Blogaversary blog hop for Ashley!! This will be a two day hop so be sure to come back tomorrow for more WONDERFUL creations. If you are coming from Cicily then you are in the right place. 
In this hop we had to make a card. It had to have one of the following themes incorporated in the project. 
Clean & Simple
Kraft Cardstock
Faux Stitching
Paper Piecings
I decided since Thanksgiving is coming around I would start off with a Card with pumpkins on it. I used four elements that were suppose to be used. I used Kraft Cardstock, Paper Piecing, faux stitching ,and Shape. 
Thanks to Ashley and her great tutorials that she is posting on her blog now, I figured out how to make a shape card using my MTC program. I went with a simple top note shape since this was my first time doing it. I used Kraft cardstock and used some pumpkin piecings from Treasure box Designs. I used some burlap that was lying around at the bottom to make it look like "hay" they were sitting on. I did faux stitching around the outside of the card. 

 I hope you are enjoying the hop and will come back tomorrow to see more card ideas. 
Your next stop is Diana   

Here is the lineup just in case.

Have an OWLSOME Fall Y'all

Hi Y'all!!!!! Are you having fun yet? I know you are. Who couldn't with all this OWL love going on. So did you come here from Joe? If you did then you are doing great.. If you didn't and want to go back to start at the beginning then click here. And remember to come back tomorrow to Heathers blog for day two with another set of very talented crafters. Heather decided to split the two days up with different ladies for some added fun on the hop. You don't want to miss it!!!

So as you can tell, we were to make something that was fall related and HAD TO HAVE AN OWL. Can't forget the owl. That would just be a crime! :) I decided to do a card, because I don't make cards that often. I am more of an altered art, scrapbook mini album kind of gal. I used brown felt embroidered owls, put some fall looking muted colored flowers and used some glitter around the ribbon and petals to add a little sparkle and voila. This is my card.

I also have a little blog candy. I will do a random drawing on Monday for this cute Owl keyring. It is the same felt embroidered type owls I used in my project, but I have attached some ribbon to it and keyring. Just comment below with a way to contact you if you win. If you are not a follower I would love for you to be. Here is a pic.  You even get to pic what color you would like. 

Ok so now you are off to see Lisa. Have a wonderful weekend and Hop today and tomorrow!!!! 

Just in case you need to see the whole line up.

Getting ready for the Craft Fairs!! Bookmarks

Hi, I'm getting ready for all those wonderful FALL and CHRISTMAS craft fairs going on locally. I haven't even got half of what I want to get done, and I'm tired already!! I thought I would share some of my items that I will have for sale at my table. As I get them made I will try to keep my blog updated with new items. Here are some cute bookmarks I made. I think they are great stocking stuffers for any age or gender. I laminated them to make them durable to last a long time.

These are for that little boy that loves robots!!
 Monograms are so hot right now,so I had to make a few of these.
 And who doesn't like black and hot pink!!!

I am in love with making altered notebooks. I was on a roll this weekend, and got to make some fun books. Here is a few that I made using Megan K. Suarez Fine Art's ATC cards on the front. You can go to her Etsy shop by clicking on her name.

And as always, anything you see is for purchase.

Hi ladies!! I have been surfing youtube and came across some cute handmade flowers. You know me. I have to try anything I see made. These lollipop style flowers were so fun to make. Might I add ADDICTING!! They will be a great addition to the mini albums and cards I make. Here are some pictures of some I have made so far.

I love working with recycled items, and trying to use up my small paper pieces that acumalate so quickly in my bin. I used toilet paper rolls to make this mini. I took the rolls and painted them with Martha Stewart acrylic paints, sprinkled them with glitter and embellished thru out. I connected them with jump rings.I made tags that you slip inside the opening of the roll for more space for journaling or pictures. I loved how this turned out and it was so fun to make. 

The winner is....... # 4 Becky is the winner of the Well Owl Be blog hop that went on last weekend. Thanks to all the WONDERFUL comments and NEW followers of my blog. I love meeting new people and inspiring You.

Well OWL Be Blog Hop

Welcome to the 
Highly Anticipated
"Well OWL Be"
it's Heather Lynn's 1st
Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Ashley then you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled into the hop and want to start from the beginning, go HERE!
First I would like to say Thank you to Heather for letting me join in on her 1st hop. I have really enjoyed getting to know the ladies on this hop and have gained some new friends.  
Today is the day that Heather Lynn's love for everything OWLS is showcased through the creative talent of her friends at each 
Blog Hop Stop! If you love OWLS as much as Heather does,you won't want to miss a single project. Each person in the hop has dedicated their time to creating any project they wanted as long as it included OWLS!

I to am addicted to OWLS. As you can see my banner on my blog is owls, and my Facebook Craft page is Owl themed as well. So when I saw this blog hop being put together, I HAD TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN!! I hope you have enjoyed all the stops and gorgeous projects along the way.
Here is my project to get you inspired. It was real easy to make this mini. All you need is ONE 12 x 12 piece of cardstock to make the album, then any scraps you have laying around to make the mats inside. I cute an owl out with my cricut from Hoot N' Holler cartridge. Then added some feathers, flowers, and bling to the front cover. Each page is open at the top and holds a tag that can be pulled out for added journaling or photos. I just did simple scalloped mats for the inside with some embellishments. Great mini to give to a birthday girl so that she can add her birthday party photos afterwards.

If you would like to see the video that I got the instructions from to make this cute mini then you can go here.

I also made a notepad holder with a cute little owl on the front. Simple project, but I had to share!!!

I'm sure you have seen all the wonderful candy up for grabs along the way. My candy is going to be the mini that I featured in the blog hop. I will use to help me get a winner to those who comment on my post. I will ship you this mini to use for yourself or give away as a gift.

Now you will HOP over to see what Erica has for you.

Here is the HOP Lineup in case you get lost along the way

Have I told you lately that I'm a Mini album freak??? Well I am. I love making Mini's, not everyone wants a big 12 x 12 album hanging around so these little mini's are perfect to set on your coffee table or as gifts to grandparents. Here is one I made this weekend. Very SUMMER like in the paper pack I used. It has lots of pockets and tags , which I love, because you can store so many more pictures inside the tags. The girl on the front is an amazing artist named Megan Suarez. She has a blog . She has digi stamps and more.

I have been neglecting my blog lately. Sorry ladies!! With school ending and so much going on. I haven't had much time to craft. But I did manage some time in this past Sunday. I made a 6 x 9 paper bag album and wanted to share with you. I used an ATC card on the front cover that I got from an FB friend Megan . You can check her Awesome  art work out on her page by clicking on her name above. I made some handmade flowers with fabric, paper and zippers. Yes zippers.... So here it is.

Wedding Album.

I wanted to share with you a wedding album I made. The time is coming up for all those Spring and Summer weddings. It is made with a Heart shaped chipboard album. I covered the pages and made mats for photos. I used some Jolee's wedding embellisments and mulberry flowers thru out the pages. Here is a couple of pages of the inside and the outside cover.
