005. My Favorite Page of the crop at Bella's

Ellie was so concerned at the end of her preschool year that Mrs. Miller was going to forget her. So we decided one way to help Ellie feel a little more secure in leaving was to make her a gift. We went to the local craft store and she picked out what she wanted to make. She was so proud. My layout uses a Basic Gray 6x6 paper pack and Jennie Bowlin letter stickers. I was excited to see how it turned out.

004. Building an Army of Reindeer

I had so much fun decorating these little reindeer for Craft warehouse. Now I have decided to make more for gifts this Christmas. I love giving gifts. I bought a different paper line for the rest of the army. My Minds Eye was on sale. I got 54 sheets for $13. How great is that. :)


003. Debbie's Birthday Card

Tomorrow is Debbie's birthday and this weekend I plan on finishing up her birthday gift but I wanted to have something in hand to celebrate with today. I chose a Carmel machiato and a homemade card. I had fun finger paining the butterfly on the card and using glitter. The glimmer mist was fun as well.


002. Cork Board

For our wedding a friend gave us a simple 8x8 cork board.  For years I have admired it.  This weekend I went to Craftwarehouse for a couple of supplies for a gift for Alyson's birthday.  Unfortunalty they didn't have what I needed and I had to change plans.  I saw a piece of corkboard and immediatly I knew what I wanted to make.  I bought a frame, the corkboard, and some really cute tacks then Ellie and I put it together in less than 15minutes.  It was very easy.  I may have to repeat this for Christmas gifts this year.   

001. Create

God gave me a gift.  I love to create.  I started this blog to start looking at ideas and to share what I do to use this gift everyday.  I can't wait to show you what I have created and I am going to attempt to post 100 ideas and pieces of creativity this year.  --Elizabeth
