Easy and quick. Think I'll get some gold wire while I'm out today to make some gold toned ones. Also need a pink bead to make Grandma C a ring with. These are all adjustable, which is what is asked for the most with my family. They all have arthiritis in their fingers and have a hard time getting regular rings on and off.

Snowman Soup

This year's snowman soup comes with a cute little hedgehog magnetic bookmark. I love these little guys! Big thanks to Vicki over at Splitcoast for sending them to me, my two Walmarts ran out of this stamp as soon as they were put out.

Original Snowman Soup poem:

If winter weather is making you droop,Here's the perfect trick!Add hot water to chocolate dust,And stir with a magic stick.Throw in a kiss to give it flair,And top with snowy goop.Make a wish and take a sip...Tah-dah! Snowman Soup!
I added for this year...
Best enjoyed with a good book,Need to mark your spot?Let the two Hedgehogs do their work.

Sourcream Gift Containers

OMH! Are these easy to make! And soooo cute and versatile. I made a sample one today, I'm planning on making a bunch at the craft day next Sunday at Jill's.

Yep inside this one is the bracelet and earring set that I made for Mom. shhhhhhh don't tell her. LOL

Hi Mom! I decided I couldn't just hand back your bracelet fixed, so I wrapped it up for you.

Template is on Splitcoast here,

2009 Calendar Bookmarks

Here's some of this year's calendar bookmarks. I don't remember who I got the idea from to use the seasons stamps, but I sure wish I could so I could thank them. They turned out so pretty.

Homemade Lotion

Thanks to Denise on Splitcoast I made some homemade lotion and stole some of DBF's containers to put it in. Course I had to make the containers pretty. LOL

Denise's Lotion Recipe

15 ounce vaseline

16 ounce vitamin e cream

"2" 16 ounce baby lotion

Mix all this together with hand mixer in METAL bowl.(it will look like thick cake frosting)Then spoon into jars with a METAL spoon(note: don't use anything plastic or your stuff may taste like lotion)

The tree, wreath and joy are from clear stamps bought at JoAnns. The reindeer and tree are from SU- Merry and Bright. Images stamped on with Stazon and colored in with Sharpies and Zig gold/silver pens. The circles for these ornaments are cut with the Coluzzle, third circle in from center.

Snowman Glass Ball Ornaments

Circle is cut with Colluzzle, third cirle in from outside (then trimmed slighty to fit balls). I leave a tag on top of the circle so I can insert the paper in the ball.

Snowman is stamped on the clear paper with StazOn and then colored in with Sharpies. I tried to color in his body and face with Versamark and glitter. It didn't stick. :(

But they still turned out cute.
