Crafting Fool....

Yep, that's me! I'm still going strong making and finishing up gifts to give away.
So tonight was supposed to be my book club night but, darn weather decided I needed to do other things so I didn't get to go. Our roads here in Ohio were very icy and yucky to travel home on. Black ice really intimidates me, especially after fishtailing out of the parking lot tonight going home! I stayed put when I finally got home! LOL! So I worked on more gifts! This time it's little candy bowls that I found at my grocery store of all places! Sometimes you can find the neatest things in a grocery store or drugstore if you just look! I found these glass bowls made by Libby Glass and they came with a lid to seal them shut. The best part?! They were only $1 each! I could kick myself for not buying more and for not buying myself any! That really stinks! Anyway, since I have been sick the last week(long story to include 2 ER trips - ugh!) I thought I'd be better off buying my treats to fill them with instead of making it! I got chocolate covered pretzels and trail mix! Not a bad combo I think! Here are some pictures of the bowls. I also put a picture of how I packaged some cute little bottles of hand sanitizer for a couple of ladies I wanted to give a little something to as well!

Stamps - "Roses in Winter" from SU, 3 different blue inks, sanitizer is from Bath and Body Works


Stamps - "Merry & Bright" from SU, Black Stazon ink, SU paper, SU markers, Nestabilities scalloped circles and plain circles, Target $1 Spot vortex Snowflakes. Don't you love the little pom pom too! They are SO cute!


Snowmen Close-Up


Remember my penguin from Michaels? Well this is one of his friends I picked up because I knew it was perfect for these bowls! How can you resist cuteness like this at only $1?! I can't obviously! I used SU papers and inks, Nestabilities scalloped squares and more cute little pom poms. I put stickles on their antlers but you can't really see it.


Reindeer close up


I know the pictures are a little on the "cr@%%y" side but I was tired and wasn't going to pull out my "stuff". Lazy I know but, well I'm past being up 17 hours right now and am heading to bed! LOL!

Until next time....

They are very cute and the little reindeer and snowmen tubs at the bottom would be great for a childrens party! Or even stocking gifts! Or to sell for either ;)
Adorable. Hope you are feeling better and your sickness wasn't too serious.
