Mae’s Crafty Creations


It pays to go through your craft room once and awhile.  I was searching for a stamped sentiment and came across a Bella swap I participated in about a year ago.  The swap included the stamped image, designer paper, ribbon and bling.  I can't believe I forgot all about it.  Perfect timing to show you this trickortreatabella!
Don't you just love her pumpkin costume with those boots?  I love them but hope she doesn't have to walk all over to fill her bucket up.  Boo Boo fee I say.  

Happy Halloween!!!

Boo to you..

Welcome to another Twisted Thursday featuring Shirley's 2 Girls.  I am featuring several of these fun Halloween images and designer paper available at S2G.  That spider is much sweeter looking than the ones I see in my house.  It has to be the eyes and that pumpkin has the best grin.
You scared yet???  Ready to hand out candy to all those trick-or-treaters?  Well grab your supplies and enter the challenge over at the S2G challenge blog.  We would love to see you play along.  

Have a wonderful weekend and a fun, safe & yummy Halloween.  

Stirring Up Some Trouble...

Hi y'all....Happy Thursday to ya.  My card for today's Shirley's 2 Girls challenge is this super spooky Bubble Bubble.   I just love the cauldron of brew being stirred to perfection and that smirk on the kitty's face.  Wonderful.  The challenge for today is spots & dots and I broadly followed the challenge adding orange dotted bling to my card.  I just love the dp and didn't want to take away too much from it.
I cut the image out and popped it up with foam adhesive.  I just love the swirls all over the paper and that bat is perfect.  Matches the image wonderfully.  Closeup....
Hop on over to the challenge blog to add your project.  We would love to see your creations!  Have a wonderful weekend & wish us luck with our football game tonight.  It is a must win to qualify for the playoffs!!!  GO VIKS!

Witchey Woman...

Good morning y'all and happy Thursday to ya!! Only one & a half day of work left for me.  I am off half of Friday so I can go home & cook four lasagna's and make two large pasta dishes.  I am the coordinator for my son's football teams pre-game meal.  The parents serve all the players, coaches and cheerleaders before each game.  The kids & coaches have no time to go home and eat before the games so this helps them out a ton.  I always worry that there won't be enough food for everyone, I have my fingers crossed.

My Shirley's 2 Girls project for  today is this wonderful witchey women stirring up a fresh brew.  What of you ask???  Well I will let you imagine for yourselves.  We were given a sketch for our challenge today along with a black and white theme.  My dp is also from Shirley's 2 Girls and I added a bit of orange to the mix.

Well off to work I go.  Don't forget to head on over to the challenge blog to play along.  See y'all.

Trick or Treat

I was searching through some of my favorite blogs and came across The Greeting Farm via Tangi's blog.  I have been adoring the super cute critter images she has been showcasing & just fell in love with this little cutie.
Isn't he just adorable??!!!  I had to have this digi once I saw it.  I am entering the Mojo Monday challenge using their sketch and I am also going to enter this into the TGF card for Stamp Drive.  Two challenges in one!  I am trying to multi task more.
Have a fun evening and thanks for stoppping by!

Grandma's Gift

Happy Saturday y'all.  It has been a rainy day and I have enjoyed lazing around the house.  Nic's high school team had a totally brutal game last night.  Just brutal.  I can't even talk about it.  On a brighter note the Huskies will be playing at 7 tonight.  My guys will be downstairs watching the game & the pup & I will be up in my craft room watching it.  Zoom does not like it when Steve yells at the TV.

I wanted to share with you my first published project in the July/August issue 3 of Through The Craft Room Door.  This is a wonderful magazine that is published by Suzanne J Dean & Marti Wills.  Both wonderful and talented ladies who are caring, giving and so happy to help you.  You can really tell they love sharing their talents.  I made note card's with decorated envelopes for my grandma's Mother's Day gift.  She just loved them, but then she loves all the stuff I send her.  She's my grandma!!! :)
I just love the monogram stamp from Just Rite Stamps..So elegant.  The paper is from Stampin Up and I used the Joy Fold Card from Beate Johns @ SCS.  She has a ton of great tutorials over there.  You must check them out.

Have a wonderful evening & GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here we are in October...leaves are changing, days are shorter and the heater is starting to kick on.  I forgot how cold the house gets during the day.  Coming home for lunch at a toasty 64 degrees is chilly.  I break out my small heater to keep me warm.
Today at Shirley's 2 Girls we have headed into the Halloween spirit like gangbusters.  Like our fun icon I added to my sidebar?  She is the bomb!!!  My project today showcases some super cute scary images.
How wonderful are they?  Just perfect to add to a goody bag or other project.  As you visit the design teams blogs you can see all the great ideas they have come up with.  I know these bags of candy will be gone in a few days and I will have to make more, oh well.  That is what happens with a growing guy in the house.

I also wanted to share a picture of our own Mt. Rainer.  The weather has been so beautiful these last two days.  Fog in the morning but when that clears the sky is just so blue and crystal clear.  I took this picture from my development after I got off of work.  I have a crafting cyber friend moving into this area next year and even though we get a ton of rain....there are also beautiful surroundings.  So Danni, these pics are for you!
See y'all!
