Happy New Year

Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and is having a great 2011. I'm going to start with the Christmas cards I made for family and some close friends, there were six different cards that Mike and I came up with this year. Previous years I attended a card class and made all of the cards in class but, the lady stopped having the class so I was on my own this year. Luckily I'm have enough supplies and tools to make my own cards. Mike was my critical eye, I ran all of my ideas by him, I wanted to make certain I wasn't over or under doing any of the cards. So here are the winners in no particular order.

Merry Christmas

O' Christmas Tree

Frosty the snowman

Baby its cold outside

Joy to the world

Seasons Greetings

The whole gang

If you want to know any of the supplies i used to make the cards just let me know. Hope you have a great start to your new year. The next post should be coming shortly, and will be some of the Christmas tags and gift cards holders I made this year.

The pillow case shirt

The pillow case shirt is similar to the pillow case dresses that you make for little girls. The process of how you make it is pretty much the same. Here is the shirt I made over the summer, its very light and airy and great for a Texas summer.

If you don't remember this is how the pillow case dress looks that I made for Mike's cousins

They are very simple to make and a great shirt for the summer. One thing you may want to invest in before you start making these shirts or dresses is a turning tool. Otherwise make the tie that goes through the top and connects the the shirt can be rather cumbersome. This will probably be my last post until after the holidays and then I will have lots of new crafty items to post. Hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday season.
