Too early for a Christmas card?

I guess it is a ways off, but it always sneaks up on me! (=  When I saw the cute paper I had to have it, when I had the paper I had to make the card,  when I made the card...  O.K I'm starting to sound like the book I read to my daughter!! LOL!  I usually don't make my own Christmas cards for Christmas.  It's just too much work and time consuming for me.  I usually make a few, but thats about it!  Do you make your own Christmas cards??

Coaster Tiles

Coater tiles are so popular and fun to do.  You can get tiles from your local Home Depot or Lowes.  When stamping on tiles always use StazOn ink.  I baked these at 350 for approx 20 mins.  I also added felt circles to the back.
I made these with someone in mind.  I thought they would be great for a beach house!

decorating on a dime!

Here our a couple Halloween projects I put together for very little money.  This first project was made using items from the dollar tree:  I got my inspiration from blog land!! (=  I've been seeing lots of dollar tree items being used for cute and inexpensive projects!!
This second idea was free to make.  I had this fabric laying around.  I just stuffed in some old newspaper, added a cinnamon stick at the top and tied it together with some rafia!  Fun, easy and free!!! (=

Halloween Decor

Here is an EASY and fun idea for decorating for any holiday.  I purchased some inexpensive dishes at the goodwill store - I think I will call it the goodsteal store! (= 
Now just add some window and mirror clings!! I choose some from Martha Stewart that include witches, crows, pumpkins and cats!  The GREAT thing is they peel back off (no sticky mess) and you can reuse your plates for the next holiday!!!

If friends were flowers...

I thought I'd play along with the Claudia and Company challenge - RED!  I used the very cute Emma Puddle Jumper for my card.  The flowers were cut and hand rolled and the sentiment: "If friends were flowers I'd pick you!" is from A Muse.
