Finally....some Crafty time


I was finally able to get to my scrap table today & make a few cards for some of the challenges over at Cookin' Up Creations.

These first two cards were done for a challenge to create our own mists out of water & food coloring. What a clever idea! I mixed some blue & green together to make my mist & used a doiley as my mask. I LOVE how it turned out! I must find some more little spritzy type bottles so I can make some different colored mists.
The cards above were created for a 'Leftovers' challenge......we were to use scraps & little bits & bobs leftover from other projects. That top card base had originally been planned for another project & didn't get used, so I used it as a card. Everything on there was just tiny little scraps that I put together & Alli said it was one of her favorites. The bottom card was an old book page which I painted & stamped during an art journaling work session. I then cut & pleated the paper strip, added the flowers from a leftover DT kit & finally I punched a few butterflies from my trusty paint chip stash. ;-)

Now, on to a little hookiness. I finished up a Christmas gift this afternoon. This adorable little scarf is for my niece, Anna. And the best part is...it only took two days to do. I'm sure it could've been completed quicker if I had had the time......you know, if I hadn't been grinding up 44 pounds of meat yesterday. LOL!
Basically this is Lucy's Hexagon pattern......the first two rounds then the chain 3 round as a border & where I joined them as I went along. It made a cute little flower pattern, don't you think?! You can find her pattern HERE.
So, share me with me....what kinds of hand-made Christmas gifts are you making this year?

I love the mist, what a neat idea. I also love the little scarf. I don't personally crochet but my daughter learned to crochet at 4H this year and loves it. She's looking for some easy things to make and sell at a craft fair and I'm going to show her this scarf. ;-)

I would like your version of the pattern! You can email it to me. I think she can make several before the craft fair on December 3rd.
