hi all, get ready for halloween and craft something fun and spectacularly spooky! here is a pic of the wreath i made for scrapalicious using some goodies from the scrapalicious store. i used a foam round wreath from from the dollar store then i crumpled and straightened out strips of the paper, wrapped and pinned them onto the form. then i glued the diecuts on, stamped the white ribbon with the pumpkin stamp and colored in the pumpkins with burnt orange marker and shaped it into a flower added the button and star diecut to the middle the stickled the star. cut out the house scene from the other pc of paper then pop-dotted onto the patterned paper making a back to the wreath .last but not least cut another piece of ribbon and made a ribbon hook at the top to hang....oh! and that cute little spider hanging..i stamped on a old pc. of wrapper from my stickers and cut it out and pinned it to the top inside of the wreath...( wow that was a long run-on sentence there! lol!) and if you are looking for the goodies i used to go shopping here.. and don't forget to stop by the scrapalicious blog for the next challenge. thanks for stopping by and ttys! :)

gotcha covered?!

hi all, just sharing a back to school tip: cover books by re-using gift bags for the kiddos school books and they are way prettier than paper shopping bags!!!! take a open gift bag and cut down seam on side then all the way across bottom to other side(leaving one side not cut) so you can open bag flat then measure book and fold paper on top and bottom to same size make flaps to tuck inside of book cover and tape on... here are pics of what
i did ....i even took the hang tag and ribbon off and made a book mark for my dd too! thanks for stoppin by and ttys! JEN T.

when space is needed ..go vertical!

hi all, hope you are all stayin cool! i popped on today to share pics of my newly added pegboard to my tiny craft corner.i found these cool black peg board tiles at home depot that were so easy to put up and they clicked together to make it more custom to fit the spot i wanted them:) so here are the pics...still a little messy yet but i got a ton of product i had in bags, up on it and i am even finding old stuff i have been looking for along the way. while organizing, i even got creative with my storage..the containers on the sides are formula tubs that i washed out and took the labels off of and added a loop of ribbon to the lid to hang them up. then, i even repurposed an old cassette case and tray to hold my stickles like a shelf and the bag part i have inks in hanging off the bottom of my pegboard too. i made the two sticker hanging pegs using two old drapery rods from our old sidewindows and straight pegs. i even impressed myself with the amount of stuff i was able to fit in my little 3 foot wide by 7 foot tall area:)--i actually could even go higher with shelves ect for less often used stuff but that is another project at another! tfl! and have a great day! be creative and ttys!
