Halloween Door Hanger Swap

I was recently involved in a Halloween swap and my partner was the fabulous
Jaime. Jaime paints the cutest shirts and onesies for children. She also loves crepe paper just like I do. I sent her a bunch of crepe paper things but she stepped out of the box for me. Jaime altered a frame (can be hung or set on a table) with black, sliver, and black glitter. She added the cutest cat with ribbons of tulle cascading from his feet. Many other little details were added like black polka dots and a Halloween ticket. It looks so cute sitting on a side table.



There were many other goodies added to the package as well. Check out that sparkly purple skeleton (I love those guys). Thank you Jaime. Everything was awesome, I hope we get to be partners again!

I Won an Awesome Prize and I Didn't Even Have to Bribe Anyone



Feast your eyes upon this lovely Paris Collage by
Starry Deborah. Deborah is about to leave for Paris in a few days and keeps sending me taunting emails saying ha ha you have to stay home and scrub the toilet. Okay maybe I was the one who sent the taunting email. Yep, me, Deborah's too nice for that. Anyway she's going to have an awesome time and shop around for some kewl Paris crafting type materials while she's there. She has collage giveaways every month so go check her out.

Wow, Wow Wand Swap

Look what came in the mail.
Genevieve of Bella Enchanted was my partner. Check it out, the silvery glittery star wand looks exactly how I imagine a fairy godmother's would look. Silver streamers and stars all over.
Oh but that's not all the glam, she also sent a silver key, dream hanging and a wish
And to satisfy my inner lustful crafter she sent supplies to craft around with. I can't wait to use those kewl watch faces-never had any of those before.
I guess it goes without saying that I was showered with loveliness. Thank You Genevieve, I love it all.

Martha Hits Walmart


Martha Stewart has a new line of wedding and craft products at Walmart. They are similar to the items carried by Michael's just slightly cheaper and of a bit lesser quality. Check them out here

I was in there today and there was a line of daisy and polka dotted party favors and decorations that weren't shown on the web site. I love to party.

Impromptu Tea Party Picnic

On Memorial day we didn't really have any plans. We tried to think of something, nothing sounded good. Then my hub said hey why don't we go shopping to pick up some things for a picnic and Lean (my daughter) can have a picnic with her friends. Sounded good. He asked if I could make special plates for them or something. Like a tea party?? I'm in.

So off they went to the store and off I went to look for some tea party goodies. Why, Jean Knee do you have a well organized, well tea party stocked house? No, I have a large craft hoard that threatens to take up the whole house. But hey, picnics are outside, right?
Any way here's how I threw together a tea party picnic in 30 minutes. First the picnic blanket. I usually keep a white twin sized top sheet to use at children's parties because it is cheap, pretty, and costs about $5.00 from Walmart, so when the spills come, don't even worry. But it was a bit windy and said blanket kept blowing up. So instead I spread two huge white bath towels onto the grass.
Then I grabbed some paper plates and cups left over from various parties and girlied them up.



I stuck a doily onto a pink plate using double sided tape. I took a length of crepe paper and made a twist about every inch and a half. I wrapped double sided tape around cup and stuck the twist on. I grabbed a basket and popped some flowers in for a centerpiece (it didn't even blow away in the wind) and tied a lace ribbon onto a pitcher of pink koolaide. We had leftover brownies but they weren't very pretty so I cut out circle shaped brownies, popped them into a cupcake liner and added whipped cream and a cherry. Beautiful. Careful these melt fast if it's hot, eat them first. The rest was just cheese and crackers, chips, grapes, anything else they wanted.




I turned out so sweet. Magical. Here's some real life things that happened: One girl went home never to return because we didn't spread the blanket where she wanted it. And two drinks spilled, less than usual. That's a fake cake in the table re-enactment, but ain't it cute?

CHEERS!
