HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT  BAGS                                                                          

Storm Sandy: Today is a cold windy rainy day due to Sandy...but I am so lucky to have electric.  There are millions that don't have electric right now and might be without for a week so the weather channel is saying...My heart goes out to those that have been affected by this terrible storm.  Please everyone take care and be safe.  

Trick or Treat Bags:  I have been very busy working on the trick or treat bags  for my grandchildren for Halloween.  I mailed a package today to my granddaughter that is in college.  She loves getting packages in the mail so she is excited.  Now I am working on some bags to put candy in for my younger grandchildren.  I wanted to beat the storm but I didn't make it I hear the wind just of howling outside but at least I made all the cricut items first. As for the storm we have made it through about the first 24 hours and we haven't lost our electric!  I did decorated both sides of the bags but I just posted the different ones here.  So here they are:

Here are just 2 items Nancy has embroidery recently.  Nancy is working on a big project right now but I
can't say anything more at this time just in case her family visits  this blog.

BABY BRAG BOOK                                                      
I just finished this baby brag book for a friend.... they are great items for that new mother or grandmother to share with their friends.  These brag books have been around for awhile so maybe most of you have seem them but I still wanted to share mine.  These little books are made out of coffee filters.

Below shows the cards that you would place the  baby pictures on and then place them in the brag book.  I am sorry I can't say where I got  the items I used in this album  because I had them from years ago when you could get a lot of items off the internet.  Thanks for looking.

CARD 1

CARD 2

A LITTLE PICKUP FOR YOU MASCULINE CARD                                                                                                   

I am going to add my cards one at a time so that I label each card to match  a cartridge since I am so new to blogging and don't know another way.  Thanks for understanding.

The truck and the wording are both from the Just Because Card cartridge.

MY PUMPKIN SNOWMAN                                                                                                                  

Back again to show you one more craft item  I did yesterday... it is so cute... It is a pumpkin snowman... the idea was not mine I had seen it on the internet and thought it was so very cute.

I just used dowel rods to hold the pumpkins together and  the face I made on my cricut machine.

                  So here she is.................

HI  EVERYONE,                                                                                  

This blogging stuff is all new to me so please bear with me as I learn how it is done... thanks!

Now to tell you a bit about what I want to do on this blog... I want to post  some things that I and a friend make.  My passion is for paper crafting which include doing scrapbooking and making greeting cards and my friend loves embroidery so we thought we would just share a blog.   My friend's name is Nancy Kaylor.

Now off to add a few pics of the cards I have made and some embroidery Nancy has done.
My cards are made with the paper I have on hand and I love using cricut machine.
