Archive for October, 2008

Okay, I admit it. The one color I have the hardest time with is purple. So I thought I was in for a challenge working with the October Sugarplum Fairies Kit from SavvynSassy. But it turned out to be not too hard after all. 🙂

There’s a great variety of types of ribbon and trims in this kit, that you can make work just about everywhere. And don’t forget the gorgeous Sugarplum Fairies buttons available in the SnS store! (I have a serious button addiction, y’all!)

Autumn Candle

This is such an incredibly cheap and simple gift to make! A candle from the dollar store, a rub-on (this one from Basic Grey), and some organza from the Sugarplum Fairies Kit along with some gingham from my stash.


Here’s a great use for those buttons! I added my journaling around the outside of the layout on scraps of purple cardstock, using staples to attach the pieces to the page.

Card Assortment

I made these fun cards during SavvynSassy’s online crop, using some sketches (still posted in the forums). Lots of ribbon and trim from the kit made it onto these.

Altered Monogram

DD LOVES this altered letter in her room. 🙂

Adding items to my etsy shop. I’ve been on a banner kick lately. Sadly, they don’t photograph very well–they look way cuter in person. 🙂
Oh, and if you’re not into Halloween, check out the new Christmas banners, too!

Quick Update on Me

Well, we spent almost the entire month of September being sick.  Viruses just passing from one person to the next.  Ugh.  The end of the month got really stressful as we dealt with several birthdays and a death in the family all at the same time.

So if you’re wondering where I’ve been, now you know.  Hoping to get some new stuff posted soon.

Plug for Carbonite

I have to do a plug for Carbonite . We recently had a bad computer crash and lost everything. Except that just about all of it is back now. Thanks to the fact that we subscribed, all my photos were safe, the only thing I lost was my email. (so if I haven’t replied, that’s probably why!)
