Wine Bottle Swap

I have so much fun getting involved in swaps over at Your Paper Pantry. The last one I was in was to decorate a wine bottle. My partner and I decided on a Halloween or Steampunk theme. Mine turned out more Halloween. I had so much fun.
Here is the box and bottle.
You can't see the skeleton with green eyes inside the bottle. There is also a light in the bottom that changes colors.
Here is a video of how I created the bottle and the box.
I had so much fun creating this for Stacie Ann who is bitchycat1 on You Tube.
She has a video up too. The box must have gotten there today. I was so happy to see that it got there in one piece.

Fun fun card making weekend!

Hi everyone I had such a fun weekend. My best friend and I went to Il. for a Friday evening card making event. We now have 40+ cards. Then Saturday we drove into Chicago to see her cousin who was the curator of an amazing art show on Navy Pier. He came in from LA. Then we met up with my oldest son and his girl friend had lunch and went back to the art show. After that we went to an Irish Pub and had a wonderful visit. I had not see my son since Christmas.  Today we stopped at IKEA on our way home. It was an amazing weekend.
Here is the video of the card I made for the card event.

Gift Card Holder

I made a gift card holder out of the same design I used on the Halloween treat bags.

It unfolds and has three pockets for gift cards. This isn't a good picture because it is a screen shot. I forgot to take a picture and I have it wrapped and ready to give to my dear friend.
If you want to see what it looks like here is the video.

Game Piece Man

I was playing again today.  I made a little man out of a protractor, domino, poker chip, some wire and wood beads.
Isn't he cute? I just have so much fun creating this kind of thing from all my little findings.

Here is a video telling what I did.
I hope you like my newest little creations.

Halloween Fun

Last year I made a Captured Fairy Jar and that was fun. But I really like fairies and don't think they should be captured. Now I don't like creepy things and you can capture all of those that you want.  So I came up with the Captured Eyeball. Now it can't be any eyeball. It had to be one from something creepy. So here is the eyeball I captured.
The tag reads, on the other side...

Captured Eyeball
This was the left eyeball of the Ork of Prairie-vill. It was captured in the slim of the Mud Creek on the 13thday of September 2012 at midnight.
Do not open Jar.

I also made some mouse trap note holders. I got the idea for this from on Pinterest. 
Here are a couple I made.

Here is the video telling how I created the Mousetrap Message Clip and My Captured Eyeball.

I hope you are having fun creating and doing what makes you happy.

Game Piece Swap

I have been so busy with the fun swaps over at Your Paper Pantry. One of the swap is an embellishment swap. I signed up to recreate game pieces and the theme was Vintage Halloween.
Here is what one side looks like.
I used a domino and a bingo chip.
To find out how I did this you can watch the video. You can see the other side too.
It really was a lot of messy fun. My favorite kind.  The swaps a YPP are so much fun and the talent is just amazing.

Thanks for stopping and watching. I would love to know what you think.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Happy Anniversary LESSology!

We are having a anniversary. LESSology is one year old and our challenge is call It's a Wrap

For my project I recycled a brown shopping bag that I got from a coffee shop and made a Christmas gift bag. 

I covered it with Christmas Designer Paper and a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the top. 

Next I used a Raisin Boat stamp called Elves on Staff to decorate the front of the bag.

Here is the video of how it went from a brown bag to a gift bag.

I hope you will join us for our month-long celebrations. All you have to do is up cycle something into a giftbox or bag. 

Here's the wonderful prize package you could win.

Now get that tap and paper out and start wrapping!
