Halloween Treat Boxes



I said I would post the Halloween Treat boxes, so here they are. I got the idea for the box from my searches online. One piece of 8.5 x 11 piece of paper makes two of the boxes. Can you believe that? I certainly can't. I also made the little treat bag as well. I reused a studio g plastic package and stamped with stazon ink. The top part was made with the cricut and then cuttlebugged with the spots and dot folder. A fun esaape from the routines of work.

Halloween Bella Cards






Wow... I don't know where the time is going...it seems like now that I am a married women it is going by extremely fast. Work, school, and home stuff has me moving from one thing to the next. I guess I am not used to all the house work of a house versus a condo...LOL! I will blame it on that. Today is the Provincial Professional Development Day, so I will be off to a conference later today. I am actually presenting there to discuss my Master's program and how it relates to the work I have been doing in my school district.

However, with that said...I have been trying to take little crafting breaks and work on projects here in my craft room. I made these cards for some co-workers at work. I have made a little treat basket to go with it, but will post those later. I got creative with the stamps. I do not own the pumpkin bella stamp, but I sent some paper to a friend and she stamped the images to me and mailed them back. I received them last night, and couldn't wait to colour them. These stamps are so much fun to colour! I used my water colour pencils. There is a product on the market that I have been eyeing. They are called copic markers. But...they are very expensive, so I am not sure I can justify the expense. I will use these water colour pencils for now which give a great effect. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!






It was a busy weekend, but it was also relaxing at the same time. How does that happen you might say....? Well. it all starts with Friday night with a trip to the mall to pick up a hot video game and do some windo shopping with dear husband. Saturday was a lovely sleep in day, and then Thanksgiving preparations began for the dinner I hosted for my mother in law and grandma. It was my Grandma's 88th birthday, so we had her over for dinner. Our Thanksgiving group was quite small because my parents are on an Australian cruise, my father in law was off hunting, sister was working night shift, so it just left the four of us. However, I didn't mind that at all because if things went a muck it is a lot easier to treat two other people for dinner than a group of 16. But, I am happy to report that the dinner was very successful. Everytihng went off without a hitch!. Sunday day was spent doing homework. I am currently working with a partner on an oral presentation we are looking at Nel Noddings and Curriculum of Care. We are using her theory to critique a IRP curriculum document. (How many of you are yawning now!?!) Anyways, I got that out of the way, and then did some gardening and washed the car. I then went to Micheals with Julie and bought a few treats. They had a 50% coupon that I couldn't let go to waste. Andrei worked all day so I was very happy to see him when he got home. We hung out and watched HGTV. Off to work again this morning, I had the Day to myself with no homework and so many things to chose from. So, I ended up doing a little bit of everything. Scrapping, hanging out with Julie, window shopping, laundry, and all of that. My I can't wait until everyday is a day like this...I will not miss having homework hang over my head.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Best Wishes!

Fabulous Weekend!








This weekend was a fabulous weekend! The weather was a good start to it. It felt a bit like summer again with the a fall breeze. I was able to get a little bit of everything in including homework, shopping, errands, a night out at the movies, brunch, and some crafting. It was very pleasant. I took these pictues of our house today. The leaves have started to change a little. I am trying to figure out what colours they will finally turn to. The other pictures are of Andrei and I at the Gilnetter Pub for brunch. We walked there and enjoyed our beautfil weather. We waited for a seat on the patio, and boy was it worth the wait. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Then I made these two cards for World Card Making Day. However, World Card making day was actually yesterday. But, I was too busy to make time to make them that I made them tonight instead. The challenge was to make one card for a girld and one for a boy. They had to be embellished in three ways, and use three techniques. The techniques I used for the girly one was stamping, water colouring, and glitter. For the birthday boy card I used embossing, inking, glitter, and coloured digital image that is decorated with glue. A lot of fun to make. I was acutally able to use two of my card kit bags. Card kits are such a way to go when you don't have a lot of time to make.
