Tilda Wall Purse


Well today I made another piece to go in my craftroom!!!!It was really hard to photograph as the paper is transparent and the reflection of light was in the way.  So I have 2 pictures but they are still not that great!!!!I used transparent paper, ribbon, pearls around the buckle, swirl, brown flowers, a bow and Tilda with presents...  it looks a lot better on the wall than in the pictures!!!!! The lace is what is holding the purse!!!! If you click on the pictures you will get a better view.
Have a great night
Linda

Tilda Christmas frame

Well today I am getting a head start of Christmas. I made this christmas frame as I have so much chipboard at home. I bought it a while back when it was on clearance. I will never be able to get through all of this if i don't start on it. On another note about 2 months ago I was complaining about my camera and how the colors sometimes wash out your project. Well this very nice lady Pam Sparks sent me an email and told me I should make a light box. She explained it to me but it sounded really hard. Well long weekend so I decided to try and make one. I think I did it. Thank you Pam for being so helpful even though it took me 2 months to make one!!!!This is the final result........

Have a great weekend all and Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

A RARE EVENT FOR ME AND AN APOLOGY

Well blogging friends this morning I am venting. So very upset with what has been happening here in my craft room!!!!  First of all I bought a expression cricket machine back in January of this year and it has died on me. I contacted the company and not sure at this point if they will do anything for me.
Secondly and most important is my followers and the yahoo magnolia group, and the rak club that I belong to. I started having problems a few months ago with my email, I could receive emails but some of my emails did not reach their destination and people thought that I was not answering them!!!!!My @ was not working properly and I guess some of my emails are still in outer space thus giving some the impression that I was not responding to their emails. Then I could not leave comments on such peoples blogs such as Dawns crafting, Trish and Treasure, The shabby Tea room and the list goes on. I thought it was blogger acting up. A lot of my blogger friends I have not been able to comment as it was saying the page could not be displayed and all of these blogger friends are people that I visit on a regular basis. Well after spending 5 hours last night trying to fix this mess I finally did it. Being somewhat computer illeterate I found out that I had somehow switched from explorer 8 to explorer 9.
With some help from google I uninstalled the 9 went back to the 8 and now everything is working fine. So please accept this apology.It really upset me and I am sorry if some of my blogging friends thought I was ignoring their emails or blogs!!!!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!!!!

Tilda's summer scene

I know i just posted for Christmas but I just finished this project that I had started on Friday. Its a little house made of cardboard and i covered it with paper, I made the table using pieces of alpahabet chipboard one was the O(the table) and the table stand was an I. I made the little flower inside the house and used some little embellishments from the dollar store. I put it on a wooden base and painted the piece of wood.  I punched out the martha stewart butterfly!!I do hope you like it!!!!

Christmas Cone

I made this christmas cone with Tilda with presents. Unfortunately I glittered the cone but it is not coming up much in the picture. As you can tell by my blog the holidays are my favourite time of the year!!!! I usually put my tree up on the First of October. One year a little boy came to my door at halloween and when I opened the door he said " Mrs should I say Trick or Treat or sing Christmas songs"   Ah Ah Ah  he was only about 5 or 6 years old.  So since I have less then 3 months left I better get a move on. All my friends and family call me Mrs Claus.  Wonder Why???? By the way Holly Hobby has their Christmas stuff out now too!!!! Way to go Holly Hobby!!!!!  Have a Merry Weekend......
