My Gift to myself

I was on craigslist this morning and found this. I love it.
Craigslist is the best!

Finally a post...

I am happy to report that I handmade most of all the gifts we gave this year. I did make all the Christmas cards, Yahoo.

I purchased a paper rack on craiglist for my new craftroom. I am just awaiting my table back and it will be complete.

I am excited to get to scrapbooking and replenishing my cards.

Happy New Year to all.

Finally Finished with the advent calendars

I have been working on these for 1 1/2 weeks.

I am happy with the outcome.
They are both very similar but so unique.

decided to try scrapbooking.
I am far from done but off to a good start.

We had our first class. What a good time we had.
This is the make-n-take we did.

The rest of the time we worked on projects.
This is a mini photo album for my nephew.

Thomas the Train
Lastly I had 75 corsages and buttouneers to make. I added
this placart to them.

I thought they turned out great. Everyone is

It has been..

so long since I have done any crafting. My kids have felt left out and lonely. I took a week off going to my mom's and stayed home and had a "normal" week with the kids. I has been very nice but not realistic. I so badly wanted to be with my mom and not lose this time. Hard to be caught in the middle.

I am going to go to a class tonight on scrapbooking and learn some new techniques. We will meet at the Lodge and play for 6 hrs. I can't wait.

My SIL has this on her website and I think I remember her making
one time for a party. Very nice centerpiece.

Flowerpot Cake (aka Dirt Cake)

Serves 10 to 121 medium-size flower pot (about 8 inches in diameter works well, or use two small pots about 6 inches in diameter)
1 garden trowel
3 large gummy or plastic wormsplastic flowers
1 16-ounce bag Oreo cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 4-serving-size boxes instant chocolate-fudge flavor pudding
3 cups milk
1 12-ounce tub whipped topping, thawed
Crush cookies until they resemble potting soil, set aside.
Cream butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Set aside.
Combine pudding mix and milk until well blended, then fold in the whipped topping.
Gently fold cream cheese and pudding mixtures together.
To put the cake together, layer 1/3 of the cookie crumbs followed by 1/2 the pudding mixture, 1/3/ of the crumbs, the rest of the pudding mixture and topping with the remaining cookie crumbs.
Refrigerate 10 to 12 hours.
About 1/2 hour before serving, remove from refrigerator and decorate with flowers.
Serve by digging out portions with the trowel.
