Personalized Glitter Ornaments

If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive project to make for the holidays...this is the one!! All you need is glitter, clear glass ornaments and Pledge Floor Finish.
I also used vinyl to personalize each ornament for my family and friends.

The letters were cut using my Cricut and Storybook cartridge.
For a quick how to video go to the "Christmas with the Cricut" blog.

Weaving a Christmas Wreath...

Have you ever logged onto You Tube in search of one particular thing and find that you have gone way off track? Well, that's how I found this great little video on "Ribbon Weaving" and figured I might as well give it a try. Not bad for a first time It's a very simple technique and when you connect the two ends it makes a perfect little wreath. I added a bow to mine and red pearls for berries.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful weekend! =)

Welcome to my home...

I have thoroughly enjoyed the "blog tour" of everyone's homes in the last few weeks. From elegant to whimsy and modern to's interesting to see the Christmas spirit viewed through other people's eyes. Although many of us will never meet our "blog friends" in person, this is definitely a great way to welcome us all into your lovely homes.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has welcomed us all into their homes this holiday season! :)

Give a Gift of Cards...

I made these cards to give away (as a set) to a few of my closest friends for Christmas. The tin box is from Stampin Up, along with the paper, ribbon and punches. The stamps I used are from PaperTrey Ink along with Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking and hope yall have a wonderful week! =)

Simple Holiday Cards

East Texas Holiday Spirit

What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit than a visit to "Santa Land!" DH and I were in East Texas on Wednesday and couldn't resist stopping by. Santa Land is a tiny little spot off I-20 near Lindale, Texas. It is a drive thru maze of Christmas lights and Holiday decorations. As you drive under this huge wreath of lights, there is a sign letting you know to tune in your car radio to a specific station as some of the lights are syncronized to the music.
Tunnel of lights

If you are ever in or around this part of East Texas, take a moment to stop by and enjoy the wonderful lights and Holiday spirit.
