upcycled Juice bottle

I get these adorable apple juice bottles at my favorite bagel shop- einstein bros. so here is a before and after shot. I painted the cap with a paint pen, then added some SU rubons, then used some fabric scraps for the ribbon, tied a jingle bell to the end of the fabric ribbons and added some m&m's and I was done!! I made 2 for 2 of my bestest friends for Christmas.
They loved them!!!
since I eat at einsten's too much I will have more bottles for next year!!

Twas the night after christmas

Found this while blurfing...

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him, "Hi Santa, " I said
"You know....good little girls Should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, And now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited To see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look In this room where you work.
" He shook his head quickly, And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim As he put it in gear.
"You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!"

Perfect bow

I found this while I was Blurfing. There is no original poster so I was able to put it on my blog. I totally need to try this because being a lefty, I have a hard time following other's directions on how to get the perfect bow tied!!

I think I will look for one of those big salad forks the next time I'm in the thrift shop to make a bigger bow than just a regular fork! I'll let you know how it works for this Southpaw!!

Froggy tin for Brooke

Brooke's kindergarten teacher is into 'frogs' so when I saw this tin I thought it would be the perfect Christmas gift for her!! I then used my unfroggetable stamp set to make the tag. I also used my nesties to make the cirles. Very cute and easy to make. I also used some lace I had hanging around and attached jingle bells to make it a bit more Christmassy. I also made the little hat with red and silver stickles to also make it Christmassy.
But I figure once the season is over she can still keep it on her desk all year.
Of course Muffin had to give it the once over to make sure it was perfect!!
