Vintage Glitter Paper Ornaments

I found some free clip art , printed it out, and added some glitter. They were really easy to make and I used stuff that I already had at home.

Advent Calendar

My friend and I got together to make these advent calendars out of mini muffin tins. We covered sheets of magnets with fun decorative papers and stickers and embellishments. The magnets are just big enough to cover the muffin holes. We are planning on hiding fun treats and messages for each day of the holidays. Some days we will read Christmas stories to our kids and other days we will bake sugar cookies or sing fun songs. Enjoy!

Paper Dolls

I absolutely LOVE paper dolls and I love making my own. Yesterday my daughter and I sat down and colored, cut out, and laminated our new paper dolls. The only thing that I don't like about paper dolls is the little tabs that are supposed to help the clothes stay on... they never work. My solution was not having tabs and just using a small amount of tacky putty to attach the clothes. (sorry about the poor quality of the pictures.) Enjoy!

skull potato stamps

I saw this idea on Martha Stewart and wanted to give it a try with my daughter and her cousin. I carved the skull into the potato for them and they each got to decorate their own spooky mini canvas bag to fill with treats. So fun. Enjoy!The finished bag.

halloween tree display

This is what I came up with to display my Halloween ornaments for the Oh Sweet Sadie Fall Show. I found some branches and painted them black. I think it turned out pretty good, what do you all think? I guess if none of these sell, I have an awesome Halloween decoration for my house!

FYI: I am participating in the second show which is the 26 & 27 of September.
