Two Holiday Cards Kits That Are a Gift Too!

 Good Morning Everyone!

I always make my Christmas Cards every year for special friends and family.  Each year I try and do something a little different.  This year I came up with a "flat pack"card.  A card that's also a gift as the contents and be put together and displayed for holiday decor.  I thought they were cool so I thought I'd see if there was any interest and put them in my shop.

There are two different designs, The Nativity and The Jolly Cottage.

Open the card by sliding the strap that's held in place by the star or buckle.   Take out the pre cut wood pieces, follow the diagram of which slot to place the figures then place the figures onto the base and they stay in place by friction fit.  They can also be glued into the base, but if you want to store your Nativity/Cottage back into the card from year to year don't glue them in.

Leave the pieces plain or paint them.  Hope you like them.

Happy Holidays!

New Kits! Frames, Hanging Plant Holder and Santos Cabinet

Happy Tuesday Y'all!

I'm in maker mode...Well, I'm always in maker mode.  This month I have a few projects to share with you. Inspired by an old small shrine I did years ago, I wanted to enlarge it and add a door.  So I came up with the Santos Cabinet.  Inspired by the beach, I made a seashell santos.  Would be so cool to steampunk her up, so many ideas...

New Easter Project: Easter Gathering

 Good Friday Afternoon and Happy St. Patrick's Day All!

Easter is on its way and I wanted to make a fun project to help share the holiday experience.  I would love to introduce a new project.  I call it, Easter Gathering.  It's a project that is simple to put together and fun to paint.  Bunnies, chicks and lambs gathered in a forest clearing celebrating the promise of renewed spring days. This Easter Gathering is housed in a tulip footed diorama and finished off with a scrolled sign that wishes everyone who looks in, Happy Easter!

The Working Organizer

 Good Friday Afternoon Folks!

I wanted to share a new project with you...I call it the Working Organizer...I am doing the kits in four different Graphic 45 Paper Collections...Hope you like it!

It seems we do a lot of thing on our phones anymore.  However, nothing is better than having an actual piece a paper and a pen to jot down ideas,  to remember plant names, do a quick sketch,  add quick notes, etc.  What's even better is to be able to have something to file these ideas away in and to have a place for a pencil or pen all in one place!  

I have to honestly say, I love this book!  I use it everyday in some way!  It's so handy!  I wanted it to last, so I made it with a cloth hinged spine and the covers from 1/8-inch Birch wood.  I covered all the surfaces with Graphic 45 papers and et voila!  It's a humdinger of an organizer.  I hope you give it a try!  

On the exterior I added a cool slide closure which keep the book securely closed.  You slide up the closure cover and remove the key shape!  On the left side there is a accordion type file made from catalog sized envelopes and kept close with a magnetic closure.  To the right of the file system is a pen/pencil holder.  The right side of the organizer is a bound composition notebook.  Fun to make!

Choose from four different Graphic 45 paper collections to finish off your organizer.

Thanks so much for coming by to look!  This is a really fun and easy project to make.

Have a great Weekend!

Organizers Galore!

Good Evening and Happy New Year Everyone!

I don't know about y'all but I've promised myself I need to organize my studio this year!  Like, I just recently added a new craft to my all ready crazy craftiness and I'm totally out of control over here.  In an effort to get organized, I made several organizers.  One that sits on my work surface and one on a table where I can easily access more things that I can store away and organize.

If you are in the same boat I'm in, I invite you to peruse these organizer kits.  It's been a Godsend for me!  I hope one might work for you and help the insanity of what we all as craft folks have...TONS OF STUFF!  Good stuff though!  Ha!  Might use it one day stuff...Get me...HA!

Again, I wanted to give you all some options.  So read the very lengthy description in my shop's description for more info.  BTW, I always say this, these are frikkin' easy to put together. Just dab the glue I provide into the notches, put it together and add a little painters tape or masking tape to hold it together while you go onto the next piece.  

The boxes are self hinging, meaning the hinges are built in...No need to loose a box top again or go out and purchase hardware.

So without delay here's the collection of organizers with a link to each for more information.

Y'all Have a FANTASTIC 2023!  It's going to be an awesome year!  YAHOOO!

Thanks for coming by!
