Autumn Glow

So, is everyone recovering from their big guzzle and splurge?  Well, not me....not yet.  I still feel a little pinch in the pants.   Yikes.  Cleansing teas for me...for a week! But enough about that.

Today I'm showing you a candle I decorated for one of our daughter's birthdays.  Isn't it lovely?  And it only took a little bit of running around my craft supplies and 20 minutes - Start to Finish!  I just love it when just a little extra time and energy transforms an otherwise simple item into a such an elegant and pretty gift.
 I do.  I dig it.

And that's about how much time I had before Caitlin came over to visit with her boyfriend on their way to his family's house for Thanksgiving.  Since her birthday is next week and she was stopping by to introduce her beau, Dave thought he better give her her birthday presents while we had the opportunity in person.  (Otherwise, it would probably get to her much later and past her actual day).

This time of year has always been a think quick and be brilliant time year.  All three of our kids have their birthdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Isn't that just crazy?

But of course, it's not just their special day we have to be ready for, but also so many people to thank, so many wonderful folks to recognize, too much work to do, every client I have asking for everything to be completed by the end of the year, and so on.

Quick, easy and awesome.  I need more of these ideas....these 20 minute gems.

I figured you would too.

Some designer paper and card stock that coordinated with the color of the candle, a few punches, my favorite ribbon, and an elegant bold stamp swiped with my markers.  

VOILA.  It came together JUST as she and her bloke were ringing the front door!

This little package really popped with the bright crinkle ribbon - it added just the little touch that was needed.   I used Sunflower from the Harvest Bundle.  I find myself grabbing that particular color so much.  I think because it works well all year long.

So, there you go!

What are your quick and brilliant gift giving ideas?

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I
