Just wanted to share a little project I just finished up. It's a mini book made from recycled return envelopes, you know the kind we toss out, that come with our mail almost everyday :):):)
As you can probably tell, I love recycling things we toss out as trash!!!
I painted the envy's with yellow acrylic paint, added spaces & tags to write or attach images to. Hand bound the book pages with embroidery floss. Oh and I designed and cut the "You are my sunshine... My only sunshine" with my Silhouette Cameo.
Well that's all for now... It's pretty straight forward, hope you like it.

I hope you're all enjoying your Saturday. I've been to our local farmers market today, for the weekly vegi's.
Yesterday, I managed to finish up my latest project and took the pic's this morning to share with you. Since the TP gift-wrap surprise was such a hit with my mom and her friends, I just had to make some for Christmas.
They're light enough to hang on the tree if you'd like. They'd be great to fill with candies, nuts or even some moolah ;)
BTW... My moms little surprise was a key chain, that I knew she liked and it turns out she was more excited about the packaging it arrived in! You can see it here Recycled TP Mini Gift Bag, if you'd like.

Did everyone have a great weekend? I hope so :):):)
Since I didn't get my crafty on, this weekend, I thought I would share a video that warms my heart and makes me smile! It also makes me look at things differently... Such a beautiful little soul ♥♥♥ We love you Duncan!!!
Don't forget to watch the video his parents made... You'll surely fall in love with him too!
Here's a link, just in case ;).... Duncan The Two Legged Pup!
Hope you all have an excellent week.

Here's my version of some sweet little cards I made, after seeing this great video at JenniferMcGuireink.com. Thanks Jennifer :):):)
My balloon body's are part Nestabilities circles & part hand cut. The ends of the balloons are also hand cut, with some bakers twine tied to them. Then I just added some hand-stamped, embossed tags. It took less than 20 mins to make all four cards. Quick and easy!

Hi, Happy Sunday! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I've graduated from reorganizing my craft space/supplies, to reorganizing the entire house, garage and potting shed. My husband's reluctantly on board, but I'm sure he wishes I still had my day job :):):) I've ordered a small dumpster so we could purge, all the years of unnecessary collecting. We've already made 2 donation trips to our local goodwill and I'm sure there will be more!
OK, so here's a simple little card idea I had before falling asleep one night and since I actually remembered it in the morning, I decided to bring it to life!
The couple, their black bow ties and heart are all covered in super fine glitter. Sure wish I would've captured that a bit better, it really makes it look adorable. Everything was cut via CCR, with my Cricut Expression. The entire couple is popped up for a 3D effect.
Hope you like it!
