Monkey Business........

Boy was this one of my favorite projects ever. I was asked by my sister in law Caroline if I would make a Monkey themed diaper cake for a baby shower for her coworker. She was having a girl, and you know me........I love me some girly things, and I was up for the challege.

I had 1 day to make this work, talk about pressure. Off to the craft store I went! With the help of Caroline we started to make our vision come to life.

As we were "brainstorming" we thought why not make a banner and 3 shadow boxes for gift to Mommy to be. We started at 2:00pm, and get this!!! We finished @ 3:00am in the morning. It had to get done......we have a few hiccups, but nothing serious.

We used Bazzil cardstock for our project. Along with the Cricut Expression, and the Creative Critters cartridge we made it come to life. What I hope to get out of this was new clients to add to my list. I hope you like.

Sweet Dominique

Hello Blog........I just completed 1 of many shadow boxes for my craft show.
Pictured here is my sweet little sister Dominique. The shadow boxes are made in hopes of me getting a few orders for them before Christmas. I love making them for gifts, whether its a picture, memorabilia, of just a name for display.

This would be a Christmas gift for my sister this year, I hope she likes it. She is a big fan you know ♥

A Huge announcement

I love me some Christmas! I am so excited to annouce that I have decided to host my very 1st craft fair.
It all happened one night not to long ago when I was at my girlfriends house. We talked about many things, one being that I was unemployed and I was worried because Christmas was just around the corner. I hate for Santa not being able to stop by with my boys special Christmas request. The have been soooo good this year.
As I was showing her my lastest creation, a tribute shadow box for a friend's wife, she just started at for a while and had a huge smile on her face. She really loved it, and said that if I did not mind, and I was up to it she will host a craft show for me at the end of the month to help me sell all my crafts and design. I was stunned and excited that she would suggest this, and I thought I could do it. I already have tons of stuff IO already made. I am always working on different things every week.....I can't wait to share all the goodies.
Pictured above is a sneak peak at a Christmas banner I am working on. I plan on making a few of these, along with cards, and shadow boxes samples to take pre-orders for Christmas. Wish me luck, I hope this venture leads me to other things........Bye for now ♥
