Here's what I've been up to...


Busy again! It's hard work being retired. Between cleaning house, cooking, (not so much)Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping and grandkids I have been pretty busy. But I have also been busy trying to get ready for a Christmas Bazaar.


I've made Snowman Soup and Poop, Bind-it-all books and Post-it note holders, Dominoe pins, Cork boards, Etched glass blocks, Tile magnets and coasters, covered peppermint patty candy, Christmas Fudge (hershey bars), Paperclip bookmarks and more... There are a lot more things I would liked to have made but I've simple run out of time. The bazaar is Saturday and I will be gone all day Friday to the Children's Hospital and I still need to make business cards and price everything so I'm out of time.


Anyway, I've took some pictures that I will be sharing with you over the next few days. But for today I'm going to show the Tile coasters I made. I used the retired set Peaceful Wishes. I love this set and I think they retired it too early. I also made the box for them to fit in. The bottom of the box is Old Olive paper and the top Very Vanilla decorated with retired Stampin Up paper. I'm trying to use up some of the stuff I have stashed. I lined the bottom of the box with chipboard to help study it up. I think it turned out pretty well and if you would like the dimensions for the box, just let me know.
