Halloween Swap



Hello everyone,

Just wanted to stop by and show you the things I received from Sherry, who is Creatology here in blog land. We usually swap once a year and this year is no different, except for this year we decided to swap Halloween crafts we created. We also decided to make it a little different by surprising each other with whatever we wanted to create. We would chose what we wanted to gift each other. Very exciting.
I have not yet mailed her package out, but here is what she sent me.

 Here are the 5 items she sent me.
Look how beautiful the bracelet with the orange skulls, a bubble wand (love that) and the felt with the sewn fabric with a cat was wrapped around a chocolate bar. Suerp duper cute idea.
This is a pouch, which is adorable. Great for makeup or anything inside your purse that you don't want all over the bottom. And the cute cute scissors in the orange and black and genius to add the ribbon with the buttons. Adorably cute and great so that I don't lose my scissors in the mess I sometimes have on my craft table. Love that. So going to craft lift it.

Thank you so much Sherry, not only for the items you sent me but for your blogging friendship. I love everything you sent me and can't wait for our next swap.

Please go checkout Sherry's blog if you already haven't. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you all for stopping by and have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

Mini Shabby Chic Banners



Good morning everyone,

I know I have been long gone from Blogging, but I have been busy doing videos of the crafts I have made. I will share some of those projects on a later posts (PROMISE). I will do everything possible to post more often.

Here are some mini banners I have been embellishing. I purchased the wooden banners at Michaels on clearance for 5 cents. Yes, 5 cents and knew when I saw them what I wanted to do with them.
I embellished 3 for Halloween and the remainder with words like, Happy (because that is how I feel when I am crafting), Smile (because I smile when I am in my room crafting), Love (because I love to craft), Art (because crafting is an art) and last Craft (because that is what I do when I am in my craft room). Hope that explains why I chose these words. LOL.

Ok, so here are the banners:







I hope you all like them and have enjoyed reading my blog. I will be back to post the new layouts I have created.

Have a great rest of the week and weekend.

Valentine's table decore



Good morning everyone. Hope everyone had a Merry Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. I know its been a lone time since my last post, but I sort of had a bump in my life and I am just getting back on my feet again.

Here is how I have decorated my table for Valentine's.


 These mason jars I bought at Michaels and just cut out a piece of paper to decorate the top and hung this heart. I found the heart at Michaels after Christmas on sale and put a red heart embellishment in the middle of the snow flake.
 This large red heart I bought at my local scrap store after Christmas 75% off. I thought they would be perfect for my Valentine's decorations.

 These hearts were also purchased at Michaels after Christmas. They come in a pack of 6. When I saw them I knew they would be great to embellish and hang on my tree. I just added beads, trims and laces to them. They were perfect for Valentines since they are hearts.
 Close up of one of the hearts.





Hope you all liked my valentines decorations. I have a couple of projects and layouts I am working on will be back with that.

You can also watch my videos on youtube. My channel is anallanes.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far.

Happy crafting.

I finished this layout last month and forgot to share.

Hope you all like it.








I have been so busy I have not had any time to really play in my craft room. I have been busy decorating for the holidays and running errands. I will be back sometime next week to show some of my decorations around the house.

Thank you for stopping by.

Almost Turkey Day



I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. I feel like just yesterday was January 1st. But like they say, Time flies when you are having fun. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. My week is super busy and will continue this way for the next few days. I am putting up the Christmas Village. But I am going to show you how I decorated my table for Thanksgiving dinner which will be here for my husbands side of the family.

Here are some of the pictures:









Hope you all have a great rest of the week and weekend.
