Wishing you a Happy & Safe New Year!!!!

As the clock starts ticking and the seconds start  flying by it will soon be the New Year!
Ring out the bad and bring in the new - that is my moto!   
2011 was surely a great year for me and I'm sure for alot of you too... Let's be positive now, not negative (LOL)!   I've met so much new friends through blog land and I'm thankful for each and everyone that are my follower's too.   I've learned alot through my journey a dream that I had that is hard to express how much I love what I'm doing and that is crafting..... Thank your first of all to my patient hubby and family in sticking up with me when I had sleepless nights trying to finish up projects that had a set due date to accomplish...they were just so supportive in each and every way....
So as the New Year approaches I just want to succeed in full filling my dreams in crafting and become better in doing so and I can't wait to see each and every one's new creations for 2012!

So from me to you, I wish each and everyone a Safe & Happy New Year!!!!

Double Dutch Fold & More Note Cards!

2nd posting!
I had my image inked up few days ago and wasn't too sure what to do with her until I saw Split Coast Stampers with this new card fold ( Double Dutch Fold).... So I figured I'll just use all my scraps and see how this works out..It was simple to make but I think I layered  my gate fold on the bottom to thick, for some reason it just wouldn't stay put so I had to use a ribbon to hold it in tack.
Anywho I used the stamp Swiss Pixie (Violet with Key) and she is cute to use as a Valentine's card too since she is holding a heart key.  I used copic, stickles spellbinders (ovals, scallops & hearts), dp papers from Target, ribbon and EK heart border punch.

Here's more of those note card box sets that I've made again, my DD placed an order and wants to give them for Valentine's gifts so I'm working on several more of these right now.  Here's two of those  that's completed so far.  I only got eight more to finish up.. he,he!
Toodles for now!
Have an awesome day/evening!

It's Candy's Birthday Today!!!

Gift Baskets Galoure!

I was asked on Friday if I could put 180 gift baskets together by Monday Dec. 5th,  a business on the island needed someone to prep their baskets to give out to their customer's... So I was asked and took the offer.... This is where I spent all day Saturday unpacking and putting all these goodies into their container.  Then I had to  cut strips of ribbons, and cellophane wrapping paper.  I've only wrapped so far 60 baskets and got 120 more to work on today..... Then a delivery van will be picking them up first thing tomorrow morning....I hoping to get them done so I can get some cards posted....
So here's one bedroom full of this container's of goodies that I still need to finish up....Yikes!!!
Their on the floor, on the bed and these goodies are all made on the Big Island!
