Christmas Test Tubes

EDIT: If you want some of the test tubes shipped to you...they are .75 each + shipping - while supplies last! Check with me first so that I can make sure they are still available. Just email me at:

Hi There!
So sorry that it has been so long since I posted! My last craft show at Cooper High School went so well, I SOLD OUT of so many things! I have been working really hard this last week or so to replenish everything...especially with Thanksgiving coming up, I know that I will have a limited amount of time to get everything done this time!

Anyhoo.....since I have been re-making a lot of things, I thought I would so you something that I have been working on today! These are Test Tubes, just like the ones I made for Halloween HERE, but I decided not to make the little "holder box thingy" for these. These would be great for co-workers, teachers or stocking stuffers!

I got the test tubes from a little candy outlet here locally....LOVE that place! Also got the candy that is inside there as well. They are called "Sixlets" - just think little bitty Whoppers! And the colors are fabulous!

Hi There!
Probably my last post this week as I am getting ready for a big (i hope) craft fair on Saturday. If you are in the Northern Kentucky area, stop by and visit me!

Cooper High School PTSO
Arts and Craft Show
2855 Longbranch Road
Union, KY 41091

Anyhoo....finishing these cute little clothespins today and finally found a way to display them! This was a suggestion from a crafter on SCS. GENIUS I tell you! And all for less than $10.00. Used a metal cookie sheet from Walmart ($4.50) and a book stand from Michael's ($4.00 with 50% coupon).

The magnets I used are from this site on ebay and are SUPER strong. I had to change my adhesive to that "stinky" E-6000 stuff because the magnets were pulling off the clothespin!

Thanks for looking!

Puppy and Kitty Treats - More Craft Show Items

Hi there!

Quick post before I head off to watch TV for the evening....It's Housewives of Atlanta and Orange County Night!

Anyhoo.....we can't forget our "fur babies" this holiday, so I made a few treats for their stockings! OK...admit put up a stocking for your dog/cat! You are not alone!!! We have 3 stocking - (2) dogs and (1) cat - used to have a hamster too....but that is a whole different blog post! :)

The dog and cat die cuts were made with my Cricut....I really need to dig that out more often. Made these so simple and easy. Made about 40 in just a couple hours!

Peppermint Patties

Hi there!
I'm in full on craft show mode right show is on the 14th and I have a ton of new ideas to work on!

These are York Peppermint Patties! I found them at Target...but sad to say that I don't think they have them packaged in the foil covers anymore. I think that they are now packaged in little individual plastic more more peppermint patties after this batch!

Anyway, these are super easy! I had a bunch of left-over chocolate covered pretzel rod bags from Halloween and saw a post on SCS from Cindy and Maria at Crafty Creations that used them for the Peppermint Patty wheels - PERFECT FIT! And they are packaged so different too - that I hope they are great sellers! Would make cute stocking stuffers, teacher/co-worker or neighbor gifts.

Jr. Legal Pad Covers - File Folder

Hi there!
Been working on replenishment of the items that I sold from my last show and a couple new things that I am pretty excited about!

These are Jr. Legal Pads that I found at Walmart (6 for $2.50 ish) and file folders that I bought at Staples. (12 for $8.00) You can also find some single folders at Michael's and Walmart, but I liked the colors on the ones from Staples better.

Got the tutorial for these HERE. They are super easy! Once you make a couple, you can whip one out in about 15 minutes! Will add some beaded pens with them....but haven't decided how I will attach them to the folder or pad yet. If you are curious about the beaded pens, try HERE for the tutorial. I use the Mini Micro Beads and O' So Sticky Paperback Tape from Penny Wise Arts HERE.

If you have any questions, email me:
