Baby Shower

I had a friend's baby shower to attend this past weekend, and threw together this shape card for her. I hid the rubber ducky on the onesie using my Gypsy, and added the airplane. She loved it!

Thanksgiving Table Decor

A co-worker asked me to make something decorative for her Thanksgiving table, so I made her a sleeve for her silverware and a sign for the table. I couldn't find the correct size scallop punch, so I just designed the whole sleeve on my Gypsy, and cut it out individually.

Craft Show Project #4: Magnetic Boards

I made a simple, 5 X 7 girly one, but sold it as "made-to-order" with a theme of choice. I got a few special orders out of this one (I don't remember what carts the heart and stars are from).

Craft Show Project #3 : Sour Cream Containers

These are the example sour cream containers I made. Amazingly enough, I got an order for 100 of them (with a different theme) at my first show. I can't believe it!

Some close-ups so you can see the embossing...

Craft Show Project #2: Spa Socks Cupcakes

I thought this idea was too cute to pass up...and who doesn't love warm, fuzzy socks in the winters?!

Craft Show Project #1: Hersey Snowman

These were definitely the biggest hit! Who thought a dressed up Hershey Bar could make you so much money :)....
