Easy to mass produce.

So I've been spending a lot of time down in my craft room, but not necessarily crafting. Today I made a couple cards that I think I'll mass produce in different colours cause they're so easy!

Crafting, but no cards yet...

Well, I've been spending a lot of time in my craft room trying to get inspired and make stuff. I usually end up spending hours surfing the net for crafty stuff and not actually making anything! I've wanted to make an advent box for my nieces and nephews for a while now but hadn't bought the "box" yet. I was at my local scrapbook store and they happened to have 2 left, ON SALE, so I bought them! I had purchased a stamp set for advent calendars that I intended to use, but the boxes came with numbers so I thought I'd go that route. If you can believe it, I finished BOTH of them in a couple of nights! Of course I did both the same cause it took me so long to finish the first. I'm actually quite happy with them, what do you think? I don't use embellishments much cause I usually make cards and don't want to give my pretty stuff away (something I'm trying to change!). I now have to find a way to get my Kiwi kids theirs. I was hoping my parents could take it with them when they visit in a couple weeks, but I don't think they have room in their luggage! My other niece and nephew live in Squamish so that will be much easier to deliver...

My other little craft I made was a mini canvas. I had a few of these laying around and after staring at it for a while, decided to go for clean and simple. It was super easy, just some sparkly ribbon and my bird punch!

Wow, has it really been a year?!?!?!

Well, well, well..... Doesn't look like I've been on here much lately! Actually, I haven't been down in my craft room for a while, I didn't even make Christmas cards this year! I have a few New Years Resolutions like everyone does, and one of them is to craft more and if I craft more, to post more! We'll see how this goes......................
