For the last couple of months, I have been working with thee best Resource Teachers in town. Although it was only for a short time, I have learned a lot from them. Below are just a few pictures of the arts and craft projects we created with the kids. For the holidays, our students and I painted ornaments and decorated a Christmas tree ornament cookie. Below are pictures of my beautifully painted ornaments of the word "JOY" and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and my edible Christmas Tree which I gobbled up in a few minutes. Boy was it sweet! :)

Season's Greetings! I was so in LOVE with TGF's Holiday Anya, I had to make more cards of her. You may not see in this picture, but I added glitter on her shoulder and to the bottom part of her dress. Then I embossed the poinsettia background paper with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder and stamped it with "Season's Greetings" using Pigment Ink so it would stand out. Take care and stay warm this winter season!
Merry Merry Christmas!!! Below is a quick note card I put together to go with the presents. I used TGF Holiday Anya, and "Happy Hollydays!" and "Tiding of Comfort and Joy" sentiment on the card. I also added some gems to the card to give it some bling.

I made two banners this year; one with my students and one for my crafty friend. Both banners say "Happy Holidays" to steer away from the Christmas religion since not all celebrate Christmas. Also, the "Happy Holidays" banner can be hung for a longer time frame since its not only for Christmas.
For this banner, I cut the circles and scallop circles using the Spellbinders dies. Then I instructed the students to write out the letters using a sharpie. The students decorated the individual letters with glitter glue, and I tied all the letters together with white ribbon. Doesn't it look kid - friendly? Students from grades K - 5 helped me with this banner, and they all did a fantastic job!
For this next banner, I die cut 28 Spellbinder's Scallop triangles.Then I embossed every other triangle using silver embossing powder. I used the Cricut to cut out the letters and added a few embellishments. I didn't get to take good quality pictures of the banner, so I hope you can see all the details.
My banner hanging nicely under a fireplace. :)

Christmas is approaching very quickly and I have yet to finish all my cards and projects. I wanted to make a manly Christmas card for my guy friend but I had a little difficultly designing something because the ones I have been making are mostly girly. Below is an image of my take on "something being manly". I hope you agree that it is somewhat manly.

These jars have became so popular. I have made them for so many different occasions including Thank You's, Graduations, and Birthday Parties. Below is my version for Christmas. Feel few to browse around my blog to see the other styles. I bought the jars from Ikea, and I used StazOn ink to secure the images on the glass, lid, and tag.

I altered this frame to include Ian, so I could give it to a couple that I know will LOVE. ;) I used TGF's Xmas Sweeties stamp set along with some poinsettia flowers to complete this project. The picture frame was purchased from Ikea, and it came in a set of 3...so I have two more to be as creative as I can! Thanks for stopping by!
