Mason jar pin cushion and bead straight pins

I saw this GREAT tutorial on One Pretty Thing a while ago and thought I would make some Christmas presents. The two things I did different were to use fabric glue to attach the lid instead of hot glue and cut my paper circle underneath a little bit smaller than the lid so it would fit down on the jar easier. Thanks Suzanne for a WONDERFUL and inexpensive idea!

I wanted some FANCY straight pins to add to this cute jar so I glued some cute beads to the pins.

Lottie Moon Auction

Every year our church has a Lottie Moon auction right before Thanksgiving. The proceeds go to fund missionaries around the world. This was my contribution this year. It was so fun making these!! A dear friend of mine was the winning bidder, I can't think of anyone else that I would love to have these. She always appreciates my cards!

Creating Keepsakes Convention-Nashville, TN

This was my first Creating Keepsakes event. My best girlfriend, Somer Jane and I went together to experience scrapping bliss! One of the classes we signed up for was a card swap. This was the card I created to swap with 20 other ladies. I know I'm wearing this pour owl out I've made so many different owl cards lately. I just can't's my favorite one to make!

We decided to make it a getaway and stayed at the Opryland Hotel where the convention was located. We are fortunate enough to be within driving distance to this amazing indoor retreat. The hotel features a plethora of vegetation inside a glass ceiling. It also features large scale buildings with restaurants, stores, waterfalls, gazebos and an indoor fountain(mini version of Las Vegas).

We went to Wasabi's for lunch to eat sushi, my favorite...California cream cheese roll.

I could have spent a thousand dollars easily. There were so many cool treasures. Sadly, I walked away leaving a few things behind for someone else to buy. ;-)
Me with some of my loot!

Acting silly....

Thanks Somer Jane, I had a BLAST with you! Your the BEST!

Sympathy Card using Storybook cartridge

I have never made a sympathy card before. A dear friend asked if I would make some to give to the families of some special fallen Army hereos. I really wanted the card to be elegent and beautiful but not joyous colors. You can't tell from the picture but the black paper has raised velvet dots. It was really important to me that this card be very respectful! I pray that I accomplished my goal!
