"Witch Craft"

My day to show off another super cute Halloween file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!!  I couldn't resist this Happy Pumpkin Witch!  She looks vintage and I simply love the easy way these layers went together!

I embossed the hat with the Spiderweb folder, and stamped a Peachy Keen face on her… although the sweet face she is designed with is adorable too!!

I placed this cute Pumpkin witch on a cellophane bag with a Halloween Boa I made for my mom, and tied with a Halloween Black ribbon!!

Check out this cute file as well as PPPR's other spooky Halloween files!!  They are so easy to put together as the pieces fit together perfectly… so if you have to make a quick "last minute" Halloween Treat…these are your go-to files!!

Got Candy…Corn??

Today is my 1st official post as a PPPR DT Member!!  So excited that I will get to show off some adorable files with you for the next couple of months!!  October is a great month for decorating or gift giving in the spirit of Halloween!

Today I am showing how absolutely adorable this little Candy Corn is…seriously cute!!  So very easy to put together and it really does look like I spent some time and effort!!  I stamped a cute face on him using Peachy Keen Stamps.

I popped him up on white little bags, and put inside a pair of Halloween socks and then tied the bag with ribbon.  These are perfect for office goodies…

Check out this cute Candy Corn Guy file as well as other "spooky" files here!!  Thanks for stopping by...

Pumpkin fun!

I am excited to be the Guest Designer for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons today!!  There were so many fun files to choose from I had a tough time deciding what to make...

I found this Pumpkin (Happy Pumpkin Treat Bag) was absolutely too cute... right?  He was so very easy to put together and he really came to life quickly!!  I used some vellum and embossed it with the Spider web, and put behind his mouth, so the candy kisses wouldn't fall out!!

Is he not a "perfect pumpkin" treat for a quick Halloween office gift, or decoration?

Think Pink!!

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to make something PINK that would remind us all of how important our health is to us…I have a special place in my heart for Breast Cancer Survivors… My Grandmother, Mother, and SIL are all Survivors!!  How lucky are we??  I thank the Heavens above everyday.

So I made crocheted Boa/scarfs in a pretty variegated pink yarn… they are so pretty to wear and dresses up a plain old T-shirt!!  Trust me, I have made one in every color!!  :)

**If you would like to win one of these… please visit my Younique website- as any order placed between today through October 14th will be entered to win!!  I want to mail them out early in the month so they can be worn in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month… but they could be worn all year long!!

Something a little "Younique!"

Yep, I just became a Younique Presenter!  I never in a million years thought I would do something like this, as I for one, can't sell a thing!!  But, I am not really in it to "sell" yes, I do sell it, but I loved the product so much, I wanted the kit with all the fun pretty colors and mascara… that I bought the kit which automatically made me a Presenter!!  :)  Funny story really…

If you are new to the Younique make-up line…it is close to Bare Minerals (which I have used for years and love it) and MAC- which has some pretty awesome eye shadows.  Younique however, is cruelty free- never tested on animals, gluten free, chemical free, and natural.  I worry about what I put in my body, so why shouldn't I worry about what goes on it?

The best seller is the 3D Fiber Mascara, and if you haven't tried it, you are missing out!  The best mascara out there… it totally magnifies your lashes 300% and is safe and natural for your eyes.  Check it out here

I wanted to make sure I sent Thank Yous to those that purchase from me, so I made Thank you cards and added a little goodie to go along with it.  I think they turned out pretty!!
