Less-ology  #31   Toy Story  December  2013 Video and pictures.

Pictures of the process..

An old sock monkey, lots of burlap, pine cones, and lots of extras.

I painted the wooden tree green and brown, then glued on burlap trim.
For the drum, I painted the old spool brown and green then
glued on the wide burlap trim.  There is a wooden child's
block that is hidden in the pine cones.. 
Lots of 8" strips of burlap were tied to the coat hanger. 
A few pine cones were glued and glittered. This will
hang on my daughter front door and she is
"anti-bling" I tried make it with more
natural/nature  items.. 

A completed wreath.  With an old sock monkey,  a wooden
spool drum, a wooden tree with burlap trim, and lots of

A "Charming" Paper Bag

LESSology Challenge... #22
(Webster's dictionary,  "Charming" is delightful and pleasing.) 

My goal was to re-use the white paper bag and make it into something  "CHARMING" without spending any money and still create something beautiful.  I only used what I had in my stash...
I wanted to create a scene where we are looking out a window at a little girl playing with her puppy.  I would say this turned out very delightful, pleasing, and charming. 
This project was made from a white paper deli bag.  I used Bo Bunny Paper and Flowers.  Glossy accents to bring out the beads and puppies face and La Peti flowers and ribbon from The Paper Studio..  Old lace from a wedding dress.  A poem about "Friendship" from Henri  Nouwen   .  and a beautiful corsage laced flower from a friend.

This is the front of this re-purposed bag.

  This is the back of the bag.

This is a close up of the front of the bag.

Here is a detailed ..  : D

Charms sewn in with trim.

A flower charm attached to stick pin and a
lock and key charm on the edge of the flap.

Hostess Gifts, Inchies, Envelopes, Tickets, and cards

I made some hostess gifts for some swaps I'm in over at Your Paper Pantry.

Mini Journals.

Then I completed 100 Inchies for a swap over at Split Coast Stampers. 

One squared inch of creative art work.

Then I made my mail art..envelopes and tickets for swaps at Your Paper Pantry.

Envelope theme was: The Key to my Heart
The ticket themes were:  St. Patrick's Day,
Easter, and Spring. 

Finally I used my favorite stamp to complete two swaps at Your Paper Pantry.  A mare and here new born is the stamp that touches my heart.  So I used it for the note card swap and for the greeting card swap..  and attached a horse shoe charm. 

Then today I completed two more projects.  A challenge at Your Paper Pantry to used corrugated cardboard.

The background is cardboard and the heart was crimped. 

I took the same idea and created a cute card with a Peachy Keen stamp for one of their challenges. 

This little mouse so loves his cheese. 

So much fun!  Leave me a message so I know you came for a visit.. cj

Raisinboat Challenge #7

Raisinboat Challenge #7 

I had a picture in my mind before I even
received my stamps.  So this is
how it all came together. 

The flowers were stamped from Raisinboat
"All in Toile"
Then the rest of the card was stamped from
Raisinboat "Wild about you, Honey!" 

The hearts, bee's wings and flower centers
were glittered with gel.  The color was
added with colored pencils and
markers.  The large bee was popped
up on dots.. This was so much fun!

Please leave a comment so I know you
came to visit.. Many Thanks.  cj
