Crafting away the last weekend of February...

Although I had a very busy weekend planned I wanted to still be able to make goodies this weekend.  As never before I was up way past my bedtime to get what I wanted done.  Here I share with you pictures of what I created between Friday night and Saturday night.

As you can see I made 4 cards with three or four decorative card squares mounted on a sliding strip. When the tab is pulled they open like the leaves of a book. I have created an Easter card, 2 baby cards (boy and a girl) as well as a bloom card which can be used for Mothers Day and a card holder box holding envelopes for each card.

My friend the at funnypregnantlady asked me to sponsor a give-a-way on her blog and so I decided that cards would be the great choice.

Dispenser box & Post-It note holder

So, I wanted to try something new today.  And with a little help I was able to get a dispenser box to use as a paper clip dispenser, and a post-it note box container with lid.  I must say they turned out amazing after I coordinated the card stock and colors. 
Here you can check out the photos:

I am still contemplating the idea of adding a flower to the top or maybe some ribbon.  What do y'all think?  Leave me a comment and give me suggestions.

It's a party for my niece...

So, this weekend my niece, Maria, will be staying with me as her mommy goes on a weekend get-a-way….  She has a Valentines Day party at her pre-school in which she needs to bring valentines for the whole class.  Thankfully for her (she loves to write her own name) there are only 12 children in the class and so she only had to write her name 12 times as well as her classmates names one per card….

We started with her writing her name in all of them first while I helped my 6 yr old with home work.  She then decided that she wanted to place the pencils on the cards with the help of her uncle’s tape…  Now my turn was to create something only she would have in the classroom…  A crafty looking mailbox to hold all those little special valentines and once she gave them all away she will come home with her mailbox filled of her received valentine cards.  I can see her face now when she gets to the house and sees the special item I created for her and only her….

Because y’all won’t tell her and her mommy won’t be seeing her until Sunday night, I can show you what I created for her….  But remember you have to keep it a secret.   SHHH!

Look at that face.....  And then she says "It's beautiful Titi, Thank you!"
