Happy Tuesday! I have a few things to share with you! Today is Ariel's last day of school before Christmas break! I had so many ideas running through my head on what to make her teacher but with all the sickness over here I didn't get a chance! So I decided to go with a card set. Coming up with a design that suited her teacher was hard with a foggy mind when your not feeling well since I don't see her teacher liking a very girly set of cards or the color pink. (And friends lately I am in the mood to play with hot pink but haven't got the chance!) So on Sunday night after our crazy crazy day I finally got inspired and made her these:
I stamped the silhouette flower by Hero Arts on cream cardstock with Tumbled Glass by Tim Holtz on 4 and Chestnut Roam on the other 4. I made 8 cards, 4 of each color and stamped with 2 different thank you sentiments by HA also. I really like the touch of the button! I am also glad that I made the card purses early that I shared a few weeks ago, I gave one of those to the Education assistant in her class. Here it is all "wrapped up" I made a simple tag for it:
Last night I was online searching around when I saw this and had to make them! Nevermind being sick and all. I had another more papercraft idea in my head but never got a chance to make it. When I saw this snowman idea I got so excited. I asked Chad what he thought since he was going to be helping me make it! (little did he know...) And I ran to the store and bought supplies. Here is what I made for each of the kids in Ariel's class:
Basically I put 3 marshmallows on skewers dipped them in melted white chocolate wafers and added mini m&m's for the eyes, nose and buttons. From the girl who I got the idea she made earmuffs too, I was going to but I couldn't find twizllers pullaparts only licorice laces so I gave up on that idea! They look good but not perfect but hey it's my first try with anything like this! And by the way they are sooo yummy! :> Here they are all wrapped up, wrapping them up took longer than it did making them!
I wrapped them up since I wasn't sure if they would stick together or if the kids would have time to eat them at the party. I made simple tags too! These were so fun to make and I plan on making more! I am so glad that even though I didn't feel that well I made myself make them, I knew if I didn't I would totally regret it and I want to be the sort of mom who does these things.
I have so many crafty ideas for gifts so I am hoping they work out, I want it to be a crafty Christmas!
