OK lovely blog readers, it is confession time, I have not been very frugal lately. Well, I have gotten some great deals, don’t get me wrong, but 50% off is still 50% on and I need to stop shopping! Now do not worry, I didn’t charge anything, I am not in debt and there is food on the table, just for me I am feeling a bit excessive and I thought I’d share it with my readers so they know I am not virtuous all the time :) Case in point, I had resisted this Papertrey ink set for about…well since it was realeased…and one late night in July I could resist no more and picked it up along with 2 other set’s I had my eye on. Yep, full price (I did get free shipping tho!) so I decided I better use them by golly! I decided the best way to break this set in would be to make a batch of christmas cards. I tend to do about 8 small batches of cards rather than 70 cards the same because after about 10 on the same design I have had it LOL! BTW the set I am using is Button Botique..isn’t it fabulous?
So, these were a snap to make and I think they are very cute. I used some crocheted snowflakes I have had kicking around for years, they did not sell at my yard sale so I kept them-everything else went to charity. I sprayed them with walnut ink and poked a wee hole in the card and slid the handing string through so the ornament can be hung on the tree.
Well, I feel better now I have confessed my indiscretions. I think I will make jewelery today. Two of my kiddos are feeling sick so some quiet time around the coffee table with beads will be just the thing I think! Til next time happy crafting!
