I did my fall ones with regular burlap I cut to size, it worked but not nearly as well. The weave is bigger and hot glue can go though a bit, so if you use that, you need a piece of card stock between the bottom layer and the candy bars, and you need some tough fingers -hot glue is really hot. Either way, it does need to be a tight sleeve to keep the bars from slipping out. All you need then, is some cute tags and ribbon which I wrapped around the whole thing to ensure bars are held tight. I used up some fall leaves I already had and then made some elements from my Happy Haunting and Pumpkin Carving cartridges. Now I have a bunch of treats ready to give out, and less chocolate at my disposal for sampling.

I also made my first watercolor card this week. I ordered a small watercolor set from Amazon (prime is a dangerous thing). I sketched the leaf and colored on watercolor paper and just wrote the hello - no stamping.
My big accomplishment this week in the craftroom was making a bathrobe. I have been sewing lately, but not clothing (if a robe is clothing). My friend wanted another one like one she had, but couldn't find one. So we cut it up and made it into a pattern. I'm feelin' pretty good about that project! I will post photos when we finish hers. Thanks for looking

I know Halloween is a ways away yet, but my son asked me for a new bookmark last night and I couldn't resist making something Halloween-y! If you only have a minute to craft today, you still have time for this one! I have another cute one for my other son, but you have to wait until tomorrow to see that one...as you can guess, its also Halloween. File for svg and studio are linked below- it cuts the both parts with a small hole for some bakers twine, or you could just use some ribbon around the wider edge. Enjoy!

9 months since I've posted...why? Well, I went back to school, thats a big part. .. The other is just crazy-don't laugh...but its because I have a winter banner. See those snowflakes? they have kept me away, yet I can't seem to change them. Ironically, as of last week, I have a degree in Graphic Design. If someone else needed a design, no problem, but for me to make one for myself - can't seem to commit to one. So the answer was to wait until winter to begin posting, or just ignore it and start posting anyway. Since I'm done with school and nothing else to do, I chose to ignore it.
Yup, it still works....
And the sewing machine, lets dust that off too!
Actually, this is a double whammy, because I used the sewing machine for the pumpking AND the silhouette to make the leaf.
Ahhh, it feels good to post again
