Wednesday Door Organizer Rewind


This was one of my favorite Christmas projects and I had to share it with you again. It has been a crazy week at work and I have not had a chance to make a new video. I will be making more videos in the New Year. Sometimes life just gets in the way of fun!!


I gave these away as Christmas gifts and everyone loved them! Please watch the video for complete details.



Hope you enjoyed the video and that you all are having a wonderful holiday season!!!

Make It in Minutes Monday Guest Post

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

This Make it in Minutes Monday is brought to you by my husband, Bill. Every year he makes Christmas cards for family and friends using one of his photos.


The photo is the Marysville Trading Company in Marysville, MT. The ghost town was founded in 1876 and was most active in the 1880's and 1890's mining gold and silver.


This year I thought it would be fun to make them a joint project, so I added glitter!

Hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday season!

Fab Five Friday!

Welcome to Fab Five Friday. For those of you that are new to this blog, every Friday I showcase five blogs, websites or posts that I think you will enjoy.


You all know how much I love box cards and so does my sister. She recently sent me this link to a stunning box card from Petaloo. Wow!



Check out this video for more information on StampTV’s perfect panels. What a wonderful idea!


If you like Tim Holtz’s crackled texture paste, you are going to love this project from Stamping Mathilda! One of my goals for 2015 is to try more mixed media projects.


I know it is too late to make an advent calendar for this year, but just think how perfect this would be for next year. I love how simple it is. You could also use it to showcase some of your gift tags or smaller cards. Or better yet, make it larger to display Christmas cards! Thanks Shanty 2 Chic.


I found this great idea on Pinterest and just had to share. Click here for more great holiday pins.

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday!
