The Carousel

YAY!!!  I finally finished my carousel.  
I attended a class taught by Jim Hankins, The Gentleman Crafter, at Big Mouth Scrappers in Forney, TX back in November.  I loved working with the Graphic 45 papers and Jim made the project easy to follow and so much fun.  No stress classes - love'm!!!
Unfortunately, I had to leave early from the class to go to the airport, but Jim and Cesar made sure I had everything I needed to complete my project.  The only thing they could not provide was time for me to actually sit down and work on the carousel.

I didn't follow all of the very detailed instructions Jim provides with his projects, I added a few of my own touches...

Now it is time to finish my RaRe OddItiEs LaB - another class project from Jim...

Christmas Ornament Gift Card Holders

A quick gift card holder for those last minute gifts...

Note to self for next year - pick up gold foil paper to cut the ornament top (just because I want a little more bling).

Oh My - Where has 2015 gone???

This year has flown by so quickly.  Work has been crazy busy and I have had very little time to craft.  My New Year's resolution for 2016 - more crafting time and work weeks of no more than 40 hours!!!  

I was able to make a few Christmas boxes and fill them with homemade fudge and peanut butter balls.  When I began the project I thought I would make 10 - 15 boxes.  Well - you know what they say about best laid plans...  
I ended up making a total of 45 boxes!!!  

Here's a pic of the first batch of boxes.

Tasty fudge and peanut balls inside the boxes...
