First off Id like to wish you all warmest wishes throughout this holiday season. I hope that everyone made the most of the holidays whether surrounded by many family and friends or shared with only one special person it is a time to reflect on all those things that are important to us. I was truly blessed to be able to spend some quality time with my husband and kids over the last 2 weeks as well as some dear friends while we celebrated a Christmas wedding.
Although I know the holiday season is all about what you give as apposed to what you received, I would like to share 2 of my favorite presents that waited under the tree for me Christmas morning.
This first one is a project my husband made for me based on a similar storage unit i saw online. I designed this one with slanted shelves to keep the liquid and mica powders in the bottom of the bottles and so that I could easily see the tops of each of the bottles. With so much space I was able to fit my Tim Holtz stains as well (a happy accident). I'm so thrilled with how this project came out that I can hardly wait to get back in my craftroom to play. I have a couple more storage units in mind now to house my ink pads and glitters and any other products I can fit on those little shelve.
Thank you all for stopping by to visit and share all your wonderful comments throughout the year. I look forward to hearing how you all spent this holiday season. Love and Hugs Glynis

This was Felicity's first time carving her own pumpkin. She did a fantastic job carving the cyclops she drew.
My Mom created a Happy pumpkin face so not to scare little Isabelle who found all things halloweeny somewhat frightening this year.

This is a coin envelope mini I made for my friend Deann in a swap over at http://minialbumscraps.ning.com/ . I used the Out of Print paper by Basic Grey and the printed recollections flowers as well as some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to embellish. The tags are 7 Gypsies and Maya Road and the mirrored butterflies are from the dollar store. This Mini was quite the challenge for me making for someone else that wasn't family, but in the end a lot of fun.

I've discovered a great new site and a fabulous way to get my craft on over at http://minialbumscraps.ning.com/ . They have really fun swaps and a great group of ladies who are always there to chat or answer questions. So this is my first swap over on the site and it was a Twilight Tag swap.
I chose to go with a woodsy theme as the pic takes place in the trees, plus I had this great leaf trim I'd been dying to use. I made the flowers using white satin and the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I cut 2 of each of the layers then melted the petals with my heat gun just till they curled a bit. Use a brad to hold all the layers together then colour with your fav dye ink spray. The leaf was cut out of two bonded layers of canvas that I then painted with Glimmer Mist to hand dye. The twohearts charm was coloured with 18k gold pen and then distressed with alcohol ink.
I had so much fun putting these together and can't wait to start my next swap. I encourage you to check out this site so you too can join in the madness of swapping....lol.

This fabulous Father's Day card was designed by my great crafty friend Tracy. She put together a kit for me so we could create them together. All the pieces were made from scratch.
Happy Father's Day
Isa turned 2 recently, but as Daddy was away working we waited to celebrate with him. We decided on a family trip to one of our favorite spots....Barkerville, BC. The kids love the ground squirells popping out of their holes, the old fashioned Horse and Carriages, and all the great Street Performances going on throughout the day. They loved running to each of the different exibits and seeing all that "old fashioned stuff".
