Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I am going to my cousins house to celebrate the holiday with family.
Then my mom, cousin and I are starting Black Friday (Friday after thanksgiving is called "Black Friday" by retailers because of the masses of people) at midnight! YES we are totally nuts. (OK, I will admit I absolutely love the hussel and bussel of holiday shopping!) Our outlet mall opens at midnight with wonderful discounts then its off for a 2 or 3 hour nap, next we hit the mall at 4am (after getting a 24oz white chocolate and peppermint mocha) then by 8am we will have breakfast at Penera Bread Yummy, shopping will continue until the stores close. Yep I love the day after thanksgiving sales!

Cracked Glass

Yeah! I am glad I finally tried this technique, it was alot easier than I ahd thought.

Stamp your image
Next versamark the area you want cracked
Then sprinkle clear embossing powder(or use glassy glaze for deeper cracks) over versamarked area and use your heat tool on it.
Do this step (versamark/ embossing powder/ heat tool) 3-4 times
Last put in Freezer for 5-10 minutes.
It really is as easy as that.

Cutting Board!

I really like the cutting boards that I have seen so I re-created one for a christmas gift. Behind the coarkboard is a hole where you can hang it from. I was too lazy to cut the hole out so I just covered it up.

Back of mini envelope album

This is what the back of the mini envelope album looks like.

Halloween mini album

This is a mini envelope album I have been wanting to make for a long time and I am really happy about how it turned out! The Envelopes are 4 1/4" x 41/4".
The first photo is the front which is Velcrod together for the closer, the pumpkin is a sizzix die cut with red/green chalk for highlights, a pen was used for the face the dangling spider is a rub on.
The second photo is of the inside when you open it up.
The third photo is of of the right pull out. The tab is crimped and the saying at the bottom "sweet treats" is a rub on.
The fourth photo is of the left pull out. The tab is crimped and the punkin face is a rub on!

Bathtub issues? UGH!

Ok, this is for all who loves to soak in the bathtub. Have you ever been without a bathtub? My tub has been really dripping/drizzling out of the faucet handle so I was unable to take a bath, because it might start running more! Well It has been a whole week (that is a looong time). I Think it makes it worse that I could not use it and it was just sitting there waiting for me. Of course I took a shower and then checked the mail for the tub part (we had to have it special orderd and I thought it would take 2 weeks to get). But of course, It came in the mail today. So after my happy dance that the part came in, I realized I had to call my brother Tye to come over and put the part in, so Thank You Tye, he came over and put the new part in and Voila it works and no drips! Yeah for bathtubs!
