Last year my boyfriend and I were sooooo sick. This one illness wiped us out for a good 2 and a half weeks. Basically, all I could do was sleep, and drag myself to Target for tissues, orange juice, and soup. Then nap for 3 hours when I got home. The only bright spot of that time was that the tissues I bought had these adorable little foxes on them. Every time I would reach for a tissue they would make me smile. So I saved the box, and just found it last week when I was cleaning out my studio. So with Fall upon us I decided I had to make something cute out of these little guys (hoping all the while that the germs on the box had dissipated after it's year quarantined in the cupboard). So here is the cute little diorama I made with them, and now I must run to the store to stock up on Emergency C. I used Tim Holtz Wallflower paper for the project, the foxes and tress are from the tissue box.
What a great Summer craft! Oh, I bet I could change this up into something fun for Fall to. And a little bit of caulking around the bottle cap and no one would know it was a plastic bottle at one time.
I found this great picture of a collage of rosettes in a blog post for decorating entryways. I simply LOVE rosettes so any new way I can decorate with this is a win for me!
Isn't this the cutest little wreath for Spring. They call it a fairy wreath. SO CUTE!!!! I love it!!!
I just love this votive candle project by Martha Stewart. I've made a few of them for last minute gifts and they come out so cute! But alas, I keep forgetting to make them for myself. Isn't that always the way.
Ok this year I'm going to do it! I'm going to start my little succulent micro garden. I have loved these beautiful little things for YEARS and YEARS. I keep shopping for them, and I always find something wrong with the one I pick out right before I'm about to buy it. It's probably because I'm not entirely sure how to take care of them. But whatever fears I have about maintaining them I'm sure pinterest would be able to answer all my questions. So this is the year people!!!
Look at this AMAZING Fall wedding dessert buffet. The banners are just perfectly placed. And look at all the variety of yummies on the table. It would be so much fun to have caramel apples at your reception. OOooooo, and little individual hand pies. SO MUCH FUN!
I just ran across a great blog post for this adorable Halloween tutorial on one of my favorite blogs Stamptramp. Such a cute idea! I will have to carve out some time to make one. It's called the Halloween Boo Box.
I almost forgot to post this little dear. This pretty little festive rosette was made with some seasonal Halloween paper, and card stock. There are two rosettes stacked one on top of the other to make up this ornament. It wouldn't be a proper Halloween decoration without tons of black and diamond stickles. And the owl from my favorite Martha Stewart Halloween stamps Elegant Witch looms from the center. Oh and of course you can't forget a little bit of black satin ribbon to finish it off. Here is the Rosette Tutorial video that first taught me how to make them.

Here is another Christmas ornament I made for our lovely little tree. He is a most dapper Dickens skeleton bearing gifts. I am most proud of his top hat. I drew it out by hand and played with it a lot before I got just the right amount of distressed imperial elegance to it. On the side of his hat band is a little holly ornament that I drew out and fussy cut. Oh and I dearly love his little crystal scarf tack. I was originally going to give him a cravat, but he ended up preferring a scarf. I only had white satin ribbon so I "dyed" it by coloring it in with a red copic marker. Oh and I made the boxes and top hat out of bristol board.
