Here are a couple of pictures of the center pieces I made a friend.

Here are the bags (center pieces) I made for a friend of mine (I think she found the idea online somewhere.) It was her Dad's 70th Birthday and he loves Superman! 
I bought the shapes at the Silhouette store and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out.  My friend and I assembled 24 bags front and back.  First I cut ALOT of stars and superman logo's out.  Next we had an assembly line going to glue the 3 parts of the logo (red, black and yellow) together.  Then we did the same with the stars and sandwiched them together with a wood skewer in the middle.  (Hot glue actually worked the best for this part) Finally to assemble we cut styrofoam and hotglued them towards the top and left enough room to put the shredded tissue in.  This way we didn't have to fill the whole bag with tissue.   The tables looked great!!!

Too many projects....not enough time!

I just recently bought a new cutting machine, the Silhouette Cameo.  I've used it a couple of times.  The main thing I did so far is for a friend of mine.  Her Dad is turning 70 and he loves Superman, so we made some pretty awesome center pieces.  (Pics to come)  Anyway, I've been watching vidoes on how to use the machine and found this one helpful for some of the Christmas gifts I will be making. 
There are alot on Pinterest as well....you can check my Silhouette board out here....LOTS OF GREAT INFO!!!  Just in time for Christmas gifts!  Have a Blessed Weekend.

Just joined Stampin' Up!  I was a demonstrator over 15 yrs ago.  Having no space at all, I eventually got out of it.  Well now my 21 old son is out on his own and was able to make his very small room into a very small craft room.  So I am attemping it again.  Wish me luck.

Here are a couple of things I've done lately.....I do really want to get pictures of my craft room (yep, I actually got one~FINALLY ~ oldest moved out)  It's not huge, but it's something!  More than I had before.
I love this cute crochet Owl hat.  I found the free pattern here.  Thanks Life at the Daisy Cottage for the free pattern. 
Crochet football hat. 
Found the pattern here at FreeCrafterMe.com   I didn't do the earflaps on this one.  She has great pictures and explanations.

Just a few of my crochet projects I've been working on.  I have a blanket I've been working on, gotta get that done!  Will post pics of that later!
