Snow Globes for Christmas

I have such fond memories of crafting with my grandmother when I was very young. One of the things we used to make was Snow Globes for Christmas. We would use plastic flowers, beads and pearls, mica flakes and whatever else we could scrounge up from around the house. I miss those old snow globes, so I decided to do my own take on them and make a few. I had such fun making these two that I will be making more of them for sure. And of course even some for other holidays.

These are Waterless Snow Globes that I put together using some Vintage & Antique images from my vast postcard collection, Vintage Mica Flakes, Vintage Glitter, Beads & Pearls and other various items. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them. And Keep Peeking for more in the near future!

P.E.P Charity Auction Event!

I am a part of sellers group on eBay and we are having our 3rd annual Susan G. Komen Charity Auction Event. Breast Cancer is a horrible thing and we need to ban together to do everything we can to find a cure for this cancer and all other cancers out there. Having several friends of mine pass away in their early 30's due to breast cancer and almost losing my middle son Cody to Leukemia I can tell you that it can and will affect everyone somehow or in some way. Whether it's your brother, sister, mother, aunt, uncle, grandmother, grandfather, neighbor, it doesn't matter. Someone you know eventually will be affected by either cancer itself or the pain of losing a loved one to it.

No one should fight cancer alone.

Annually P.E.P - Painting eBay Pretty holds the largest multi-seller charity auctions ever held on ebay Benefiting Komen for a Cure.

Breast cancer is no laughing matter. over 200,000 women and men will be diagnosed with this disease this year alone.

This year will be no different in our quest for a cure for this devastating disease but, No one should fight cancer alone.

Someone you know has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Being the most predominate cancer to women it will always be the most fought for cause

With this said.. the pain does not just walk away nor the person be forgotten. I pray today to our sweet Lord for a cure for all cancer. I pray today that if you are reading this you can feel in your heart to give to fight for a cure for cancer. We have chosen the cause and it is time to fight. Brenda lost her battle but can we all fight for a cure? She is looking over us now and it is time for us to all give back. Please I pray you will bid on the charity auctions and that with all our efforts put forth that your donation will be what helps us push to find a cure. No matter how big or how small it all counts.

We ask for all the sisters in the world to help us to help find a cure. The funding for Komen helps for early detection and helps people that may not be able to afford medicines or treatments that are so needed. It helps for breast exams and so many other things.

Today we stand up and we fight together.. because.. No one should fight cancer alone.

I have never been a big fan of sugar cookies although they always look and smell so good. I guess I have sensitive taste buds because they always taste bitter to me because of the baking powder in them. But I finally found some where the bitter taste isn't overpowering and I can finally enjoy sugar cookies too. So me and the kids had some fun making some and putting icing and lots of sprinkles on them. I mean really, what is a sugar cookie without the delectable sprinkles? The glittery goodness and shimmer of the sugar. :) Here are some pics of our cookies. Don't they look good? We did these a couple of weeks ago, but now I think we are going to have to make some more.

Something you should try, just a little something I made up. I love to cook and I love coming up with new foods whether it's delectable (this is one of my 5yr. olds favorite words) desserts or scrumptious (this being his other favorite word) dinners.

Using a cookie sheet or baking pan put you cookie dough in to make bar cookies spreading the dough so it is about a half inch thick in the pan. Then cook until the middle is done. You may get some browning around the edges but that's ok because you can cut those off and snack on them later when no one is looking. :) After the giant cookie is done take it out and let it set for a few min. to cool slightly. You want your cookie bars to still be warm. Then cut into decent sized bars and top with vanilla ice cream, warm caramel sauce and hot fudge.

For more enticing flavor push white, peanut butter or chocolate chips and either almonds, macadamia nuts, pecans or walnuts into the dough before you bake it. This is one of the best desserts ever.

Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy! Did I mention Busy? : )

For Sale, but not listed yet. If you are interested just email me. (I know the picture is awful, it was cloudy out when I took the pic, but it is so much prettier in person like the matching wreath)

Boy I tell you, I am always so busy I never have much time to do the things that I want to do lately. I don't get much "ME" time to do things I want to do. But then again, my life has always been about making others happy. And that's what makes me happy, so I guess I don't need a whole lot of "Me" time anyway, but it would be nice once in a while. The only thing that I have noticed though, when I go shopping for myself I always feel guilty for buying things for myself and always wind up getting things for everyone else or for my business. I very rarely ever get something that is truly for "Me". And when I do get some quiet time to myself, then I'm bored out of my mind because I don't know what to do with myself. Do any of you ever feel that way or am I just crazy? LOL

I'm getting ready to start listing some Christmas items. I have already had quite a few things sell, so my Seasonal shoppe is looking a little bare. I want to make more of my Vintage Style Tulle Wreaths, I sold out of all that I made last year, they were a big hit. And of course I made and sold lots of the matching Vintage Style Tulle Trees, My Shabby Gingerbread Cottages, Tree Skirts, Stockings, Stocking Sachets and Sugared Vintage Style Ornaments. Christmas is definitely my favorite Holiday, Easter is Second and Valentines is a close 3rd. Here are some of my Christmas items that I have made this year so far that I will be listing soon and some that I already I sold. Enjoy!
