Cookie Monster

Aren't these darling?  Not my original idea... I found this idea on Dawns Stamping Thoughts blog.  She has tons of darling ideas on there... I had to improvise a few things... but they turned out cute!

I welded two scallop circles 4" together with the Gypsy, and then cut out circles for the eyes and cookies... use dimensionals and then slipped them over a bag of cookies.  I think using smaller bags would make them stand out a little better... but I couldn't find the BIG bag will have to do!!

Now, wouldn't this make a great little treat for someone...?  Easy to make, too!  Enjoy!!

Birthday Frog Glass

I know you are all tired of seeing wine glasses from me... but I am addicted to them right now, and since I had a bunch left over from another project, I might as well decorate them, and give them away, as they are too hard to store somewhere, and I risk them getting broke...
So, I made this magical little frog for my sister for her birthday!  I filled the glass with some candy and $$ and mailed it off... I always worry about them breaking in the mail, but I bubble wrapped him pretty good!!  Happy Birthday Connie!!

CPT Celebration

Cheers!!  I passed my CPT Exam and was pretty proud of myself!  I needed something to toast a celebration drink in...don't you think?  So I made a glass just for me!!!  I am not a wine drinker, but anything you put in it looks festive!  Cheers!!!

I have been studying for my CPT exam ( Certified Personal Trainer) and I am ready to take my test this week!  I have had lots of questions and still do... so I have been asking my friend at work to explain concepts to me...etc... I am sure she is about as ready for me to take the exam as I am... I wanted to show my appreciation so I started with Card.  It is a Clipboard cut at 6" and layered.  I put the phrase "Coach" on it with the whistle... isn't that cute?

Update:  I passed the exam!!

Then of course, I have wine glasses... so I thought, what better way to say"cheers!" than with a wine glass with "Coach" on it... C'mon, I love cutting vinyl and I am in love with the wine glasses right now!!  I will couple this with a bottle of something and give to her as a big Thank You!  What do you think?

Yep, I used the Cricut for this... I needed a pattern, and I found an Owl.  I wanted to make rice packs.  The kind you can put in the freezer or microwave... I have 10 dozen ice packs already, but I wanted something cute and small enough that I could use while at work, or for a small area needed.  I am not a seamstress by any means... but they were fun to make!

Got Cupcakes...?

Well, I have been having so much fun cutting out vinyl that I found this cute cut from Sweet Teats (Lite) and thought it would be so cute to put on a wine didn't adhere nicely, perhaps it was cut too big or the shape of it was too round for the glass...?  ( I need excuses for why it didn't work!)  So I had a glass plate I purchased at the $ Store and placed it in the center of the plate.  Not sure, this is one of my favorite projects, but it will make a cute Birthday gift for someone in a hurry!  Slap a few cupcakes on it, tie with bow, and Voila!  Gift ready to go!
