I Want To Grow Old With You


Aren’t these Such Sweet Tierney buttons the coolest thing to spruce up candy canes???
Super easy to do, just a piece of thread looped through the button and around the candy cane, love easy and love easy when it looks this good :)


and yum ;)


Over at they are hosting


The first challenge was to make some sweet gift boxes, come join the challenges and create some cool stuff for Christmas :)


Super easy and very cool, so I made 4
This one I topped with another Such Sweet Tierney button and it was the perfect size for another project I have been working on so this one is already full and awaiting deliver for Christmas ;)


This one


I used a star and glimmer mist for some masking


this one I just sprayed green glimmer mist over the lid


and this one I topped with a button that I had added a snow flake sticker to


Pulled out some American Crafts Christmas rubons, that I had got last year, and made some simple tags


and while I was in the crafty zone I scrapped this page that had been brewing in my head :)


She was home from school again today
We tried, but when we got there she started to cry and said her belly hurts, which is part of the flu she has, so rather than make it hard on her we came home
Glad she was home because her temp went up again through the day, poor tyke

Used a piece of Basic Grey doily paper as a mask, some Cosmo Cricket paper and chipboard and my trusty typewriter, love :)


The journaling


Oh and another project that’s in the wings
Lucy and I collected some of these tiny pinecones, that probably aren’t pine but I just love pinecones…, while we were at the Gardens last week, hence the sultana box because that’s what we collected them into
I have painted them with some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint


Hopefully the idea I have in my head will turn out so I can show you some more :)
Been a warm day again today, hoping for the cool change they promised
Had my H1N1 vaccination today
I was brave and didn't cry
Elizabeth and Lucy got the lollipops
Not sure how that works, I missed out lol

Today Dave came home via the hospital
He had his stitches removed
So again there is a photo, read on if your ok with scars etc :)
If not, thanks for stopping by :)
