Christmas Hang-over Bliss!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas!!  I am still not quite over the stuffing with food all day long, but it sure was worth it!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful long weekend, and got everything on your list!

The girls had so much fun opening presents yesterday morning, Emma is currently enjoying a Hannah Montana addiction, and is now an official Rock Star with her HM guitar and dress up concert clothes!  It’s hysterical!  B is enjoying her new cell phone and case, and used her own, earned money this year to buy presents.  We were quite proud, she did a great job!

Tomorrow marks the end of our annual holiday sale, so if there’s something you’ve been eyeing, it’s a good time to take advantage.  You can find out all the deets HERE.

Have a great long weekend!

Gifty, thrifty Christmas part 2…

 

There is a recipe in the current edition of Crafts ‘n Things for bath salts, and I thought that would make a perfect gift for teachers, and neighbors.  Cheap, easy and easily mass produced by the whole family!  I don’t want to publish the recipe because it is the authors intellectual property.  The whole magazine is filled with good stuff, and lots of cuteness from some of MFT’s own as well, so it’s worth grabbing!

The first pic is one of the jars, just filled with the bath salts mix, before we’ve worked out alteration magic…

First, I used some CHEAP ribbon from Target, and cut it with my scalloped trimmer to add a little zing.  Then we used Scor-Tape to adhere it.  Have I mentioned how fabulous this tape is??

Then we used my purple circle punch to punch out white scraps, which exactly fit between the two lids of the ball jar.  We stamped the top with some hearts and circles, and then used the Tis the Season set for the Naughty or Nice sentiment.

Here is a close up of the finished jar, isn’t it cute?  I used my Cropadile to make a hole in the plastic bag of the candy cane, and then after tying my white ribbon around the jar, I put both strands through the candy cane and attached it upright on the jar.  

This was seriously the easiest round of gifts I’ve ever made, and the cost (not including the stamps sets) ran about $35 for 15 gifts!  Could it get any better???

Are you a Day Dreamer???

I know I am!  This is the first teaser for the BC Dzyns Release Hop which starts today!  I am first on the Hop Around the Block, and next, you’ll visit the lovely and talented Julie Dinn!  She will point you to the next spot along the Hop, and eventually you’ll see lots of MFT eye candy, AND end with the perfect pot of gold with our Hot-to-Trot designer.  I won’t give her away just yet though, you’ll have to continue the hop to find her…

This new BC Dzyns set is called Day Dreamer and she’s available NOW!  She’s modeled after a pic I sent Chesney of Brianna, deep in thought (right…), and comes with all kinds of fun and sassy sentiments so you can speak YOUR mind!

It’s so much fun to see each of the MFT lines creating their own fan base, it really is an amazing and wonderful thing, I am deeply grateful!

I created this card following an MFT Sketch Challenge, Frances and Cindy create a new one each Thursday, so I hope you’ll play along soon.  There’s a $5 gift cert winner each week just for participation!

So What’s Up This Week at MFT????

  • Natalie has created the coolest scrapbook page, and has a scrapbooking challenge posted in our Forum
  • Christina is doing a How’d They Do That? tutorial on Faux Stitching
  • The First 50 get a FREE plastic canvas piercing template!  If your order number is under 7725, you automatically qualify!
  • This weeks WUW Hook-Up is to Get Sentimental with MFT!  All orders over $35 get a free sentiment set added to their order!  List your choice in the comments section, and we will ship it out with your order.  Remember, we also offer free US shipping over $40, and worldwide budget shipping on orders that contain stamps only.
Whew!  That’s a lot of goodness for only ONE day!  Don’t you think?

Did you see this???

Isn’t this incredible??????  It was created by Kathy Daume, and Jen spotted it in the SCS Gallery and told me to go check it out.  I LOVE it!!

Tomorrow is the release of the new BC Dzyns set, Day Dreamer, so we’ll kick it off with a hop to lead you into the release, an MFTreat by this month’s Hot-To-Trot Designer, Janna Hull and all the WUW fun!

Ornaments for the Nursing Home

Today is the day that Emma’s class visits the nursing home, stopping along the short walk from her school to the nursing home to sing Christmas Carols!  I can’t wait!  I promised I’d show pics of the ornaments we ended up making, they are very simple since there was mass production involved, but it was nice family time!

Here is Emma stamping, sans clothes as you’ve come to expect.  Maybe by 6 she’ll keep them on??? PLEASE????  

Here’s a blurry close-up of Em hard at work.  It was her job to stamp the snowflake!

Here are Brianna and Craig, it was B’s job to add the Quickie Glue Pen dots, and Craig’s to add the glitter.  It was Mom’s job to supervise and take pictures, and Dad’s job was to paint them white!

Here is one of our finished ornaments.

Here is our table full of ornaments, exactly as many as we need for the residents of the nursing home.  I hope they will enjoy them, and it will bring a smile to their faces.  Handmade love is the very best, isn’t it?

Did you see this?

Jessie created this gift card holder for this weeks HTDT?, isn’t it adorable???  Every Wednesday, we host (WUW) What’s Up Wednesday, and have how-to’s, challenges and one day specials!  If you always want to be in the know, make sure you get our newsletter.  There’s a sign up box for the Brand Spankin’ News on the lower right hand side of my blog.

Jessie used WIndow Shopping, which certainly fits the theme this holiday!

We are working tonight on the ornaments for Emma’s Nursing Home excursion tonight, so I’ll post a pic when we’re done with the finished project!  Instead of having the plain wood, I had Martin spray them white which I think will look more finished.

I’ll be back soon with pictures!
