I'm still alive!!!

I've been MIA and I'm very sorry for the lack of posts.

I am currently studying to become a Web Page Designer and will soon be redoing this blog completely.  I may even move to my own domain.  I have been super busy with the Easy shop and hoping I can drum up more business.   I may be moving the Etsy shop soon, it all depends on what happens with my new prospect in the next few months.  I am super excited about the website I may be selling from soon.  Everyone knows this particular site, it's very popular and it has a fantastic support system for the seller and consumer.  It will be fantastic to be a part of this particular website.  Please keep all crossable appendages crossed to help me get into this wonderful place.  If I make it in you will be the first to know when and how you will be able to view my store and it's new residence. 

Speaking of my store, I am currently having a de-stash sale.  I am cleaning out the craft room/studio of things I just don't bring out into the light of day anymore.  So you can find those items here: DeStash on Mouse's House of Crafts.  

In the meantime I am working hard on new projects too and will be posting a few Bridal items and a few more unique gift items.  

I want real bad to start doing tutorial video's on Youtube, but I can't work up the nerve to do it!  LOL
I have MAJOR stage fright and can't talk when the camera starts!  I swear it's just like being in high school all over again trying to read a report in front of my classmates.  That was a devastating experience to say the least.  I started reading the report and everything went black and I woke up with the school nurse sitting beside me on the floor!!!!  LOL  Needless to say the teacher never made me do it again.  I am working on it though.  I would love to be able to teach the things that I have learned and have discovered in my crafting experiences.  Just gotta get my brain on board and then we might be able to convince my mouth to work in unison with my brain.  Although its hard to talk when your foot is hanging out of your mouth!!!

Anyway, I will quit rambling and get back to work.  I hope to see you soon.  Definitely in the near future.  I will try not to leave everyone hanging like I have.  Thanks for following me, I truly appreciate you all!!!

Here are a few pics of what is done, I am still not completely sure about the placement of most of the stuff in here yet as he has a lot more to build.  But I thought I would share anyway, its starting to look great!  [biggrin]

This was just an Idea I had for a bit of shabby chic decor.  I still haven't decided to keep it or not.  [confused]

And my favorite helper Boogers the gigantor cat!

This is far from finished, there are still things to be built and details to finish, not to mention it needs to be tidy for me to be able to work, its WAY to messy for me to think straight!  [lol]  But so far I think its looking good!

Tiny Dresser


Today I would like to share with you my tiny dresser I made.  I got the Idea from a book for using your Scor-Pal to make these cute little projects.  The book is called "Score, Fold, Create!"  I LOVE this book!!!  So many great projects in it.  

Anywho, this is my idea for the little three drawer organizer they had in the book.  I made it to look like an antique dresser.  The mirror is made with the Framelits-Label Connection (125598) (you can get yours HERE, this is my Stampin' Up demonstrator).  I used the 3rd (from the center) one for the mirror then I used the 4th one for the backboard of the mirror. 

The box was made following the directions in the book then I just layered the paper on the outside to make it more " homey" looking.  For the jewelry box I just free handed that and made it from some black card stock and some decorative washi tape and then coated it with Glossy Accents.  The butterfly cabochon was purchased on Ebay, just look up flatback resin cabochon.  The hand mirror I got out of the Cricut Cartridge "Sentimentals" on page 60.  The lamp also came from there on page 40. 

For the mirror I cut it at 1 inch and put about 6 layers of basic shape, then I punched out a circle from some silver reflective card stock, (sorry I don't remember the brand) I also used that for the larger mirror.  Then I layered 3 of the first layer on top of the circle.  Then I cut one shadow in the opposite direction (flip) so the dark grey side would show on that silver paper I used.  That paper that I cut the mirror out of is from Recollections, not sure if they make it anymore though. 

For the lamp I cut it at 1.75 and put about 12 layers together of the basic shape.  Then I cut 2 of the 1st layer in bright shiny gold from Martha Stewart Essentials.  The basic layer was cut using American Crafts black card stock.  The lamp shade I made from punching a scalloped circle at 2" and then cut it in half to form a cone, then snipped off the top of the cone so it would fit over the lamp I made. 

The lace I used is just some scraps I had in a box, that was also used for the piece of cloth hanging out of the drawer.

The drawer pulls are just buttons with their attaching hole cut off and I used dimensionals to make them stick out a bit so you could open the drawers.

I also used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink to ink the edges of the paper layers. 

I think thats all, if I left anything out and you have questions please feel free to comment or CONTACT ME and I will try to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you, and have a blessed day!

Christmas Cardinals

These things have just been lying around waiting to be used in my craft room.  A circle sister challenged us to use nothing but our stash, which is stuff that has been lying around and not getting used, and not buy anything else for a while.  I didn't formally sign up for the challenge but I have been trying to do what she put forth for us to try.

 I used Mememto London Fog on the frame and then clear coated it for a stained look.  The birds are I believe Inkadinkido and they are colored with a combination of Spectrum Noir and Copic.  I used Spellbinders to make the Poinsettias and then burnished the leaves to make them look a little less fake.  I then used my home made glimmer mist and spritzed them.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.  I hope you like it.

Advent Calendar

Here is an advent calendar I made with Teddy Bear Parade, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and Art Philosophy. I used Art Philosophy for the background for the numbers. The numbers were cut using Sizzix Ransom number dies. The boxes were cut using TBBM. I cut the boxes at 8 inches to get this size box. and the larger box is cut from poster board (I didn't have any huge card stock) and the measurements are 13 x 14 1/2 with 2 inches on the sides for the box sides. So your box lid and bottom should measure 9 x 10 1/2.

The Bear was cut at 8 inches. I think I covered all the measurements.Flapper

Enjoy, if you have questions contact me.


Visit my Project Gallery and leave a comment and on Dec. 1st I will draw a winner the old fashioned way by that night. Please leave a way for me to contact you. 

Here's the candy. The sheet of stamps is a full 9 x 11.5 inches of stamps! Plus a small sample stamp from CTMH. Just leave a comment on the Project Gallery and I will draw a name the old fashioned way Dec. 1 sometime in the evening. Please be sure to leave me a way to contact you.
