Whew I have been craft busy!

How about you? I still have Christmas cards to make but need to get stamps! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Sure seems to be my life though! I did get the teacher's gifts done! Well or at least I thought I did. Much to my surprise Taylor changed her mind and decided to give the same gifts as Antonia. It is a good thing that when I buy the hot cocoa packets from Market Day there is 30 of them! So let me get the pictures for you to see.

Paper - SU
Stamps - SU, Rubberstampede & Hero Arts
Pencils - Prismacolor
Blender - Baby oil & Mineral oil
Stickles & Gelly roll pen
Embossing - Ranger
Ribbon - ?
Diamond Glaze

W actually had to make 2 more but I did not get a picture of those! Since we did them quick they were not as fancy! I learned to make these a few years back at a crop in South Carolina. There was a Sampin Up gal there who did this in a small version for regular cocoa packs. This was my first real attempted at stamping back then and I have really gotten hooked!

I did attempt something for my first time & used my own brain for it so you know it sucks! Anyhow, I am making candles for Jack's mom for Christmas! Of course the big one I messed up!!!! Go figure! I might try to use it still but tell her to put the one part in the back where no one will see it. I do have extra candles just in case but no 4 wicks! I did by two so I will maybe just do pillars and 2 big ones! Anyhow, my attempt was a candle coaster! I used Stazon & various stamps underneath the coaster. Here is the picture.
Candle coaster - ?
Stamps - Studio G
Ink - Stazon
Markers - Bic Mark it's!

Basically I stamped it then colored it! I probably should have used paint or paint pens if they have such a thing but I thought about the fact that she won't wash it just wipe it down. So I colored it instead! Saves time and money! I am going to finish her candles today or at least I hope! When I finish I will get a picture!!!

Well I have to get going since I need to clean house for family to come over tomorrow for Antonia's birthday tomorrow! Plus things to finish altering and scrapping! Thanks for stopping by all! Hugs
