Happy Crafting

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Well, I have been happily crafting away while on break from kids are running wild around the neighborhood, while I putter around in pj's pondering ribbon and paper combos!
I will post a few pictures of some things I've made...a few got away without being photographed!
 This cute snowman was made for my sons extra credit math project, he is a polyhedron-thingy
This was made with another son for his math project, I have no idea what this shape is called, but it involved perfect circles and equilateral triangles...harder than it looks, lol!
I tried several Pinterest projects, this cute Christmas tree from old book pages...and I also tried cooking the chocolaty cupcakes made with brownie batter, snickers, and cookie dough...well they tasted better than they looked...Snickers melts with yucky looking white sons classmates didn't like them at all...

 More Banners! I made several book page banners this season...

This banner was so fun to make, it is constructed of all reused items...The snowflake letters were part of a banner I got on sale last year, and the rosettes are made from old sewing book pages; the tinsel came from my Aunt Jane.

This are just a few of the Christmas ornaments I made. Sorry for the poor quality picture, it was taken with my blackberry right before they were given away... 

Now I have moved on to Valentines Day projects!!

This refurbished candy box was done as a gift for my mother...I am going to fill it with pictures of her children and grandchildren as toddlers.
I have always wanted to do one of these, so this was my first Valentine project, lol I had been saving this candy box for years! I used "My Minds Eye" papers and embellishments.

This is an almost finished banner...just waiting for the glitter glue to dry so I can string it together.
It is for a very special girl in son number 4s life. I hope she likes it!

 Pinterest projects...

Button bracelet...I love old buttons!
Valentine Bookmarks made from paint chip samples! Next planned project...

Well hugs, kisses and Happy New Year!
