Christmas Card Swap!

I absolutely love this time of year!  It's an especially fun time for crafting!  As a lot of you know, I have discovered crafty happiness with all of you on youtube!  It's been such a breath of fresh air in my life and the creativity out there is endless!! 

One of the great discoveries I've found since I've been on youtube is the wonderful world of SWAPS!!  I have recently joined my first swap hosted by Mel on youtube.  Here youtube channel is hearts1217 and can be found here.  There were 20 of us in the swap and there was also a really fun spin to it!  We each had a secret santa!!  So, we sent a card to each of the 20 ladies in the swap and then we also had were assigned a secret santa person to send a RAK to.

It was so much fun and I just wanted to share the cards I made for the swap.  I mailed them all out about a week ago and I finally mailed my big box of goodies to my secret santa person!  It was so much fun. :)

More Craft Fair Items!

I will be in my first craft fair this season on November 10th!  I have been working, when I have time, on some cute projects that I will be selling and I have had so much fun.  I truly wish there was more time in the day when it comes to crafting.  Here are a few items that I have made and I plan to work on some more this weekend.  Thanks for stopping they are:
Mini Holiday Planners

2013 Altered Pocket Planners

Teacher Gifts!  These are art pencil packs with a skinny notepad and eraser.

Skinny Notepads

Fun Tag Project!

I had so much fun making these coffee stained tags!  I just went to my local office supply store and bought a package of plain white shipping tags.  (They were very inexpensive...I think I got 150 for like $2.99!)  I like tags with a vintage, aged look, especially when I stamp beautful images on them.  That's why I decided to make coffee stained tags!  Check out my pictures and easy steps below!
I just took my leftover morning coffee and poured it into a large paper plate. 

Next, I put about 15 tags into the coffee and let them sit for about an hour.  I made sure they were all covered in the coffee. 

Then, I layed them out to dry over night on some paper towels. 

They turned out so great!  They have an aged look to them with a slight brown tint, which makes them perfect for stamping vintage images!  I hope you give it a try too!
