If you're looking for some super quick and easy place card holders to make for your Christmas dinner tonight, this isn't them. :) But, these are just the cutest red trucks bringing you some Christmas cheer. These trucks are made using the Ride With Me stamp set and Truck Ride dies Bundle. Actually, these come together fairly quickly with a hot glue gun, but you probably won't have time to make a dozen of these for everyone arriving in the … [Read more...] about Merry Christmas!
This past Wednesday was our annual Crumpette Christmas party. More than 20 years ago, we all worked at the same office and became really good friends. Then one by one, each of us left the Company and moved on to other jobs. We missed seeing each other on a regular basis so we started a monthly dinner night. We've been having dinner (almost) every month for close to 20 years now. About nine years ago, I started making ornaments for the … [Read more...] about Annual Ornament

Shortly after I graduated College (a long, long time ago), I went to a Temp Agency looking for a full time job. I really had nothing specific that I wanted to do, but figured this was a great chance to try something new. Well, at my first assignment, they offered me a full time position and I accepted it. Little did I know at that time where that decision would take me. I met a really great group of ladies at this office. We all got … [Read more...] about A Christmas Treasure
A couple years ago, I made this stand to hold a small Spring wreath. And every year when the Holidays roll around, I think to myself "hey, I should make a Winter wreath". Well, I finally got around to it this year. The wood wreath is from a local craft store. I used the Sprig punch from the Holiday catalog to make all the greenery, using four different colors of green. The Sprig punch has been super popular and has been in and out of stock for … [Read more...] about Merry Wreath

Twenty-some years ago when I started my first full-time job after college, I met some amazing ladies and made some dear friends. We’ve been through engagements and weddings, starting families and raising children, and so much more. These ladies are so very special to me. For the past several years, I’ve been making handmade ornaments for each of them for the Holidays. Here is this year’s ornament. The ornaments are made from plastic … [Read more...] about Life Long Friends
