Hello blogging friends. Its been a major long time since I last posted. I apologize for that. Gosh, life gets in the way a lot the time, doesn't it? A lot has been happening in my life- My oldest daughter got married last fall. That same daughter has given my first grandchild ( boy) and I couldn't be more happy. I have had some family members with illness/ injuries and making strides in recovery. I have been dabbling in photography (something I have always wanted to do more with) and am loving it. I have been working on a 3 year project with some colleagues, through a Grant from Ohio Dept. of Education, that is finally up and running as of 3 weeks ago. I have to admit, I have done very little crafting and wow..., did my life feel busy, chaotic, stressful and lopsided without crafting. I did some crafting last winter, this summer, and recently but, not enough to keep me from stress and provide balance.
I decided to make some of these mini hand sanitizer holders that I found on Erica Cerwin's Pink Buckaroo SU! blog and FB page (the YouTube video tutorial can be found in the link). She is so talented and creative, love following her. Since I have not stamped in so long, I found it difficult to get into the groove and was not happy with anything I stamped and layered to make accent on front. I decided stickers and punches would satisfy for now. It may take me a while to get back into the groove... I hate when I feel this way.
Holder #1: I used Martha Stewart's jack-o-lantern punch, SU wiggly eyes, along with Recollections (Hobby Lobby) jack-o-lantern puffy stickers for the first couple (left). Ultra fine glitter added to further accent the nose.
Holder #2: I used the same Recollections (Hobby Lobby) jack-o-lantern puffy stickers, Recollections (Hobby Lobby) glitter foam bat stickers, SU! fringe scissors (grass), and SU! 'eek' stamp. Misc. decorative papers. Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, SU! card stock.
Holder #3: I used Recollections ( Hobby Lobby) bat stickers and SU! 'spooky' stamp.
Holder #4: SU! 'boo' stamp, Recollections (Hobby Lobby) witch leg stickers. Misc decorative papers. SU! Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive card stock.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to add more crafts more regularly.
