That's What She Said...

Good evening! Tonight I decided to work on some more stuff to put in my Etsy shop. First up is a new mug that says "That's What She Said." Most people give the credit for this phrase to Michael Scott of The Office, but Jason has been using this saying for years. Gotta get back to crafting now, but thanks for checking in with me!

My Favorite Project EVER!

Happy Sunday afternoon everyone! Today I want to share with you my favorite project ever. I made this cute little box using files from Lettering Delights. The box is in the Handled Boxes collection & measures about 3 1/2 inches tall, 3 1/2 inches wide, & 2 inches deep. The fence is from the What's Up Kitty Cat collection & the gnomes are from the Good Luck Gnomes collection.

I printed & cut out the gnomes instead of paper piecing them. The flowers are also from What's Up Kitty Cat & they were cut out in layers.

I had trouble getting good pictures inside at my desk, so I was gonna use Jason's fancy camera. I tried for several minutes & never could figure out how to even turn the stupid thing on! I went outside & between breaks in the 20 mile an hour wind gusts managed some pretty good pictures.

I'm hoping to win a Silhouette SD in the Lettering Delights challenge this month, but even if I don't I have a project I'm very proud of. The winner will be chosen at random, so I guess it doesn't technically help my chances that I worked really hard on the little box. Have a wonderful afternoon!

Hop To It! Challenge

Good afternoon! This afternoon I finally got a chance to play at my craft desk. I've known what I've wanted to do ever since Dustin Pike made his current challenge an Easter themed project that couldn't be a card & he made the cutest bunny freebie. Here's what I put together for Doodle Dragon Studios' Hop To It! challenge.

Dustin hates black jelly beans, but my Mom loves them! I remember her buying bags of just the black jelly beans at Easter time when I was a kid. I made this pinch box from an SVG from Lettering Delights & added Dustin's super cute bunny to the front of the box.

When I got the pinch box files I wasn't exactly sure what a pinch box was, so I had to cut one out to see what kind of box I would end up with. Now all I have to do is go buy some black jelly beans & make my special delivery! Thanks for checking out my project!
