New jewelry bookmarks for Vicky!

These bookmarks were ordered by a friend of mine to give to her staff for Easter. I think they turned out gorgeous. The photos don't do them justice. I need to learn more about photography.

The nativity scene I made with my Cricut machine.

 I made lots of tags to go on the kids gifts, but did I remember to use them, of course not.

I'll just have to remember to use them next year. Yeah, good luck with that. Now I just have to remember where I put them...ever been there?

Department 56 Collection

Along with crafting, I love the villages made by Department 56. When I got divorced, I didn't have enough money to have them all shipped to California, so I gave them to my son's best friend's parents. They also collected Department 56 Dickens Village and were delighted to get my collection. I really missed having it around the holiday's, so I started a new collection. I don't have the beautiful ones that I used to, but I love these new ones just the same. I collect Dickens and North Pole. I still love Santa Claus and Snowmen. Here are a few pictures of my new village.


Junee is half Boxer and half Bulldog. She knows she is the queen of the household. Since I've been spending so much time on the computer with my crafting, she sits at my feet and cries for attention. Of course, she wins. She wins more than my husband, Brian does. I think he's drawn the short straw. Here is a picture of the "Queen".

Handmade Cards for any occasion, can be custom made.

These are the jewelry bookmarks:
