 I have been very busy for this upcoming holiday season.  I'm in a tag swap with Kyoko and been getting some really nice tags to use for the holidays.  So, if you're my partner you'll be getting these cute little ones.  I made all of mine at the same time.  This way I know I'll never be late.  :o)  I've also been participating in another 3x3 card swap with Karen  and this time around we did holiday gift tags.  These are the ones I sent to her for the swap.  It consists of 15 cards and you 15 different ones back, including one of your own.  I love how the reindeers turned out.  Can't wait to see everyone's tags.  :O)

 On my screen they were right side up, however when they downloaded they got turned sideways.  There cute little owls are from Tia my tag swap for August.  They are totally sweet.  Thanks, Tia.

These are the cute tags that I received from Pamela.  She was my tag swap for September.  They are sooo cute and I love the reindeer.  Thanks, Pam.
Well, this is what has been taking all of my spare time.  My daughter is going on an educational trip in 2012 and we have all ready started fundraising.  This is what we are doing.  We've made cards, 3x3 cards, tags & gift card holders and we'll be selling them at some craft fairs. 

 You get (10) items for $10.  I have (10) extra packages made to sell on my own, and if you'd like to contribute to her fundraising event, let me know.  I can meet you or mail it to you.  It will be a mix of both card sets that you see to the left.    I did have some help  from some special friends.  Thanks to Fran, Kyoko, & Linda.  Without you I couldn't of put together (400) cards.  It was a massive job. 

And, last but not least, my tag swap for October, from Kyoko.  You have to love the angels.  They are so adorable.  Thank you Kyoko.  I love them.

OMG!  I can't believe it's been 3 months since I posted something.  Time sure does fly.  Here is the card that I made for Teri and this is the one she made for me.  We were OCS for the month of September.  I love the card.  It is beautiful.
The multicolor card is the one I made for the Island Girls Social, back in August.  I actually won something.  It turned out really cute.  I had a great time at the social got to make new friends, and put faces with blogs that I visit.  Everyone is so talented.

I'm bad, but I'm really late on my October OCS to Mcclain.  It will be in the mail on Monday.  I'll take a picture when I finish.

This beautiful card is from OCS for November Jodi.  I love it. She is so talented and now I have to bling up my card that I'm going to send to her.

Okay, this is my last post for the night.  I promise.  :O)  This was drawn by by daugther.  Who also LOVES the Twilight Sagas.  I told her about Bernice's challenge and this is what she came up with.  It's a hand drawn card.  She did a great job. I hope Bernice gets to see it.  I can't figure out how to upload it to her site. 

I just wanted to send a special Thank You to Teri S. for being a wonderful hostest for the Island Girls Social 2.  Joy from Tamiko's had all her goodies there and believe me we all bought something.  Good thing I had a buget.  I got to met a lot of wonderful people. They are all very talented.  And, Linda & Kyoko thanks for inviting me.  I had a great time.

Yes, I'm behind in posting all of my OCS's for May, June & July.  So here I go:  The sideways bunny one is from Margarita.  She was my OCS for May.  Those bunnies just make you happy.  Love it!  The middle one is from Joy.  She was my OCS for June and she has  She does some awesome work.  You have to love this card.  It makes you wanna go to the beach.  I don't know about putting on the bikini, though. And, the last card is from Colleen.  She was my OCS for July.  Love this it's so cheery.

This cupcake card was the card that I sent to Colleen for our July OCS.  She did email to say she liked it.  :O)
Here's a project I've been working on.  These are wine cutting boards.  You can use them to serve cheese & sausage or other pupu's when you have guests over for a few cocktails.  Or heck, just when you like to kick back and pour yourself a tall one.  You know that happens every so often.  The geen one on the right was made as a birthday present for my bf Beth.  :O)  It will go perfect into her new home.  The blue one on the left was snagged up by Kyoko for her friends house warming party.  :O)

This is my 2nd opportunity to participate in the 3x3 card swap with Karen.  She's blogs with my bff on Little Per Studio.  Look at all the cool little cards I got.  I was so excited to get this in the mail.  :O)  So, now we're doing a Christmas theme 3x3 swap.  I can't wait.

So remember when I made all those pillows for a "Princess Graduation" party.  Well, here is the finished project.  She loved them and how they looked on her tables.

OMG!  We had a great day scrapbooking.  I didn't get much scrapbooking done, but look at all the cards we got to make today.  These are some awsome cards.  We all had a blast making the cards.  After, making all these cards and we ate lunch, then I got to do a couple of layouts that I hope to finish tonight.  And, here's Joni card.  She's my  OCS for the month of February.  I hope she likes it.

All I can say is, if you didn't get a ticket to see Bon Jovi in concert, you missed a really great show.  And, if you're saying "Bon Jovi who".  Your young. :O)  They were fablous and he still looks great.  This is just a few shots that I got and may I say that by the time we left my camera's battery was exhausted.  It was on the whole time the concert was going.   Aaaahhhhh, okay back to life.  Enjoy.
Okay, I finally got this darn thing to post.  These are some of the Valentine's Day cards that I stamped for the kids to give out at school.  I stamped & they helped me color all of them.  It was family night and we had fun.  :O)  I got to work early on Friday and went around to everyone's desk and put one on each of them.  The boy & girl are an Archiver's exclusive, so I just had to have them.
I have a couple more projects going and I'll post them when I'm done.  Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day.  Blog with you later.  Sherri

Well, I did get a little creative this weekend.  It was my BF's birthday.  I got the new cricuit out and checked out what kind of designs they had on them and tried to figure out what I wanted to do.  The SchoolHouse design(or something like that) comes with alot of stuff I didn't even know about.  You get letters, envelopes, bags & a few more things.  This is what I came up with.  I think it came out really nice and she liked it.  I used the clear versamark on the bag and added some stickles.  Gotta love the bling.  :o)   Thank you for checking out my blog.  Love all your comments.  Blog w/you laters.  Sherri

Okay, I've been MIA.  Lots for things going on.  However, I did make a promise to myself and that was to start doing my crafts more often.  When I get on a creative track I can go far, but then life throws you a curveball and sends things out of wack.  I'm going to make time for myself.  :O) 

Here's a card I did for the ladies at Koolau Kroppers last Sunday.  It was my scrapbooking day.  I even got a couple of pages done.  It's tough doing pages for 3 kids and one graduates in a year.  YIKES!  I have to get going on that.

Thanks for all your comments they mean alot.

I hope you all have a very creative week and get lots of done.  Talk at you soon.  :O)

I forgot Denise's blog  Check her out.

Before I took sometime off during the holiday season, I received a very cute card from my OCS buddy Brenda.  How cute is that Gingerbreadman.  I love it.  I felt really bad, because I hadn't even started to work on hers.  I did email her and let her know it was going to be late.  However, for Christmas I got a Cricut from my family and I love it.  I just have to learn how to use it properly.  I think once I have the hang of it I may never leave it.  It was alot of fun and from the Cricut there's the card I created for her.

Well, I went back to work there was surprise waiting for me on my dest.  I got mail while I was out.  It was from Denise and it's a Tea Swap.  That was so very nice of her to send it to me.  It is so cute.  I didn't want to open it, but I did.  :o)
