Here are pics of some of the gifts I've made so far this year. I had a kit to make sock monkeys, which I've been meaning to use forever. I think it came out pretty cute! The monkey is going to Payton Rose in Southern California.

One thing led to another, and Leo and I decided to make a sock elephant for his Secret Snowflake at school, who loves elephants. Greg thought the nose looked a little phallic, but you can see how sweet it's little face is in the detail!

Naturally, that led to something else!! I found the coolest instructions for these sock monsters on the internet, and had to make some of these. These two went to my nephews Grant and Marco in Colorado. These monsters are so fun to make! I kept cracking up every time I sewed on the features! They seem to come alive when they are made.

LPS Blinkie

Here is the cool blinkie we get to use as Design Team members for LPS! Some say it looks a bit like cigarette butts in an ashtray, but I think it's groovy!

It's about time!!

It's been almost a year and a half since I posted anything on my blog!!! One of my goals for the new year is to post regularly. I especially want to post photos of my creative life, including scrapbook pages, altered art, and any craft projects I've made. Please stay posted for photos of all of my Christmas projects!

I am so excited to have been selected to the Design Team for Life Preservers Scrapbook Club! My term will begin in January, and will last nine months. It is such an honor, and a little scary! The team is going to be incredible this year!
