Christmas Eve gift giving

Good Morning my crafty friends!  This afternoon we will head over to some friends of ours to play horseshoes in the snow!!!  So much fun!  You have to play partners with your spouse (I did better than my hubby last year & I never play horseshoes....let alone in the shoe!)  So for all of my girlfriends hubby's I decided to make these.  I saw these on pinterest & went to Life of a Modern Mom's blog.  She originally posted this November 29, 2010... check out her blog pretty neat!   Anyhow..this is how mine turned out!

 For those of you who do not know this is Kid Rocks beer that is brewed here in Detroit Michigan...(bet he never thought his beer would look like this )

 All the guys got a big kick out of these =)

Ornaments I made for customers

Well I can finally showcase the work I did for others this holiday season.  I am loving the fact that I can make personalized items for people!!!  Here are some of the items I made....Enjoy =)

Hello my crafty friends......sorry I've been MIA....on December 12th we lost my Father in Law.  Even though we were prepared you truly are never prepared.  He lived a long beautiful life!  He was 86yrs old a World War II vet who will be missed dearly by us all.
