So, my sister makes this gorgeous jewelry.  She is super talented.  We have partnered up on Etsy, so check it out.  (All proceeds go toward my sister's college tuition for next fall.)

8 sets of earrings
6 Sets of Earrings
Braided Necklace and Bracelet Set
What a gorgeous set this is!  Bracelet, two sets of earrings and two necklaces!

She's got awesome prices normally, but she's doing a sale right now and there's some screamin' deals!  I'm secretly hoping for some of them in my stocking!  =]  Check it out.

Craftsy 'Cause I Can: Winter Tile

This was rather simple, but I really like the colors together.  Very wintery.  I'm loving the way it turned out.  I got quite a few tiles from one of my friend's father when a new company was moving into a long-vacated store.  The new store was remodeling and the old store had a ton of tile... so, I got a ton of tile at a super awesome price.  I used white vinyl for the lettering in "Frosty" font.  Love it!


Want one for yourself... These are in my Etsy shop.  All items on sale now!

My Christmas List

So, while it is terribly true that I have been wanting a larger vinyl cutting machine, it hasn't really been an option due to certain situations... like $$$$$.  It went from being on my birthday list to my Christmas list.  There are some screamin' deals out there, but that's still x amount of dollars that could be used as a down payment (I so desperately want a home of our own!).  Well, I'd been checking out Ebay in hopes I could snag an awesome deal since I've been getting some more Etsy orders (it wasn't too hard, it doesn't take much to be more than none...)  I bid on this same package 8 times and to no avail.  My highest bid wasn't even close.  So, when hubby found a deal on Craigslist we jumped at it.  It ended up being a little more than I was initially willing to part with, but I wanted it so.  $10 won't make or break Christmas.  And if it does, I'll feel awful.  Anyway, we got back to my grandma's house and I thought "oh, I need to cancel those Ebay bids..."  However, there was some mommy things I needed to do... like feed the baby... first.  When I finally got on to cancel, guess what?  What, no takers...?  Hmmm, well, I'm now the owner of not one, but two, of these package deals.  They are really good deals, yes.  But I don't need two of them!

And the ironic part... The guy we bought the first one from was trying to get rid of it because his wife had already gotten one and they didn't need two machines!  I thought "wouldn't that be funny if I won one of those Ebay auctions" on our drive back to my grandma's.  Guess what... not so funny.  So, my Christmas list has changed today... Number one on the list though is still a house of our own.  I need somewhere to decorate!

Craftsy 'Cause I Can: Holiday Blocks

Ok, this project I did the first year we were married.  I was looking for decor that would work year long, but would still be holiday specific.  A little bit of an oxymoron, I know.  The blocks are, by no means, a new idea.  But, there is a reason they are still as big as they were when they came out.  Anywho, enough jabbering!  On with the crafting!

It's all pretty self-explanatory.  These are 1-inch blocks.  Each side is a different letter and color scheme, coordinating with the holidays through out the year.  All I used was acrylic paints, puffy paints, and paint pens.  Sayings are totally customizable.  Love it!  Unfortunately... I threw them away when we moved.  I know...what was I thinking?  I was thinking it was one less thing to have to pack and store.  I got at least one saying for each holiday out of the blocks.  They worked awesome... except my husband thought they were a pain because he always was knocking them down.  If we had decorated with the shelving like I wanted to, they would have been fine.  But then we moved... aww, t'is life, full of surprises.

Weekend Wander #6

Don't forget to enter my 300 Followers Giveaway!  Before we get to the party I wanna do the features, cuz well, we're leaving town and let's face it... If I don't do them now, they won't get done.  So let's get to it.

How adorably cute are these FREE printables?  Saying it Sweet did an awesome job on them!

What cute decorations!  And from the Dollar Store (my favorite place...).  Kyra at Racks and Mooby continues to knock my socks off.  She is definitely my kinda girl.  Dollar Store and spray paint... aww.

Check out this sweet bag!  You'll never guess what it's made from... maybe you will, I don't know.  Make sure you check it out over at Crafty Girls Workshop.

How fabulous is this top?  Absolutely, that's how.  MJ over at My Busy Craft Life did a fantastic job!

I was in love the minute I saw these!  And Gail at Can't Stop Making Things did this waay cheaper than Pottery Barn.  That's a victory in my book!

Aren't these cute little tags?!  These are too adorable.  Check them out at SmileMonsters.
