Gobble Gobble Gobble!

Hello Everyone! Just want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. Just so you know I am still alive and well.....LOL, just really busy here lately. There seems to be more things to do then time to do them....(stop crying Carol)....that's everyones life :-) So since Halloween, I just want to update you all on what I've been doing!

First I finally figured out the altered lunch tins, still haven't quite finished it, not sure if I want my name or cards or recipes on it. LOL Too many options I know. And even though I used flowers on this tin, I'm not real flowery, so I have to figure out what I want to put on top

Then I went to Ritas house and she gave me the directions, and paid a visit to Jennys blog and seen them there too, I was inspired to put my stuff to work! Well I just fell in love and had all the stuff so I ventured to this......and this is the one that captured my stamp clubs attention. They didn't want to see what I was teaching anymore, they wanted to learn these so I gave them the quick run down ;-)

Then I was back at Jennys blog again.......and seen her bows. Well the first few I did looked more like balls....yes I'm not kidding so with patience and practice this was the end result! So I decided with our paper special this month, to sell these at my craft fair.....they were a hit!

And what gift would be complete without a gift tag....well ask me about 570, yes that is 500 + tags later....I'll just write the name on the wrap next year.......just kidding! I did most of these on my hour and half journey everyday through carpool! They were fun!

Then.......after the treat sacks I sent in for halloween, which Matthews class just loved, I had to do something for Thanksgiving right! So I put these together yesterday (yes....you know the day before) and just fell in love with the end result! If I had more time I would have added more feathers and feet......but that's what procrastination gets you LOL! So here are my scrap punch turkeys with sticky strip (yes I ran out of snail) can you believe it.....UPS must hurry....I have cards to make LOL!

So enjoy, I will see you all after Thanksgiving! I will have anywhere from 10-12 people here to eat so I will be starting prep today (yeah you know it wind up being tomorrow or later....hush) Have a great time with your family and friends......and remember.....holiday pounds don't count so eat happy!

Boo! Well this is a quick one guys! I have to get back to making my tags......but want to keep you up to date on what's new! I am going to a name frame class on Thursday that I am very excited about (it's with Rita, and I just know I'll learn something new), then Thursday night I have a class, then I have classes at my house next week that are getting slam full.....yeah! And the next craft fair is next week..........eeeeekkkk.......it was sneaky and came up while we weren't looking......so I am knee deep in tags, bows, and cards, and anything else we can sell......Yeah! I did want to post the cute little treat bags I sent into Matthews class.......yeah, that was last minute too......at 11pm the night before I did them LOL. I do my best work last minute! Enjoy, I'll be back soon!
