Santa's Sleigh

I used a pattern from Jim Hankins, The Gentleman Crafter and immediately created my version.
Jim used pattern paper, I painted and repurposed an old FedEx shipping box.
I hand cut the sides of the sleigh and with multiple coats of acrylic red paint I set it to dry.

I measured and followed the back piece by using my On The Edge Sizzix Tim Holtz die to create the fancy back and front edges.

All sides, bottom and the secret seat/lift compartment were all hot glued in place.

I created the headlights by using snowflake brads
The license plate is also a Sizzix die that I glued to another piece of the re-purpose box.

The reins are made by threading the gold glitter cording through soem retired Stampin' Up hardware.
My video is available on YouTube you can click the link or watch it below.

Crochet necklaces

Hi Folks,
You may have seen my post from last year, but since I sold out of my crochet necklaces at last years craft fair. I made more for this year's craft fair too!
I sell them for only 5.00

Here are a few of the couple dozen I made.
 The silver bead you see is actually the end slider to allow for different lengths.

Dangling Snowflake from beaded spool

Made a dozen of these for my craft fair, I covered spools with music sheet, added glitter (you can't see) the the ends of the spools.

I added two crystal beads to the clear string in which the snowflake dangles from. Will be sold for $2.00 at my craft fair next month.

Birthday Card for my daughter

This card was a CASE and I loved the layout so much that this is my version using scraps!!
Love it! Got to keep the scrap pile down.
This card was made for my daughter who turned 22 last week.

 The butterfly, the border punch, the flat back pearls and sentiment are from Stampin' Up. Most of the scraps I think are as well.
