Sharing Handmade Kindness

Jennifer McGuire has had a campaign about sharing handmade kindness. You can read about it here. 

This week's challenge is to share with strangers.

I am sending a thank you card to a blogger. We have never met other than on line. I won a prize and wanted to send her a card.  

Check out Jennifer's blog for more information. 

Handmade Paper Gift Bag

My daughter's birthday is in 2 weeks. I made a gift bag to hold a small gift. Here is a sneak peek.

This was the inspiration for this week's Magazine Monday at PCC. I am late getting ti done but here is a canvas I made. We are having an early Thanksgiving dinner at my son and daughter in law's on Sunday. On Thursday they are leaving for their honeymoon and we will be spending Thanksgiving with our daughter in Arizona. I wanted to bring them a gift for their house.

Thanks for stopping by!

Playing Christmas Carols

I am playing Christmas carols and getting into the spirit. It is extremely windy and rainy today so a good day to work on projects!

I am getting ready for an upcoming show. I will have canvases and ornaments for sale. Every single one is different. I do not have any duplicates.

This is one of my favorites!!

Papers, inks, stamps and so much more.

Adding this to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Gearing up for Christmas!

I used the Olive Hybrid Ink pad and American Crafts double sided tape.

I started many traditions the very first year Jen was born. She was just days old for her first photo with Santa!:)

I love that she and Shawn (with a small bit of nagging) carried out the pumpkin hunting tradition! I don't even mind that they found their pumpkins at the grocery store. It is more difficult to find a pumpkin patch in Phoenix than in Michigan! Not only did they get pumpkins but she also carved it! I was thrilled to get these photos!!

I am so glad they are Carving out Memories!

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Making canvases for an upcoming show. These are mixed media using scrapbook papers, text, paints, inks, stencils, stamps - everything I have been hoarding:)

This background has an abundance of stamping. Adding this to Craft Stamper November Challenge to use a stamp. Here is a close up of some of the stamping.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
