Today I have some exciting news to share with you all :o). I made the design team for Try Stampin' On Tuesdays! How exciting is that! Ok not so much of the exciting for all of you, but trust me I'm doing a Happy Dance over here!!!! I told my dh & he's like meh. Told one of my non-blogging buddies when I found out & she's like WOOOO HOOO!!!! Family gotta love 'em ;o).
So what else have I been up to? Well I went to my first crafty group on Sunday with Helen. She invited me & I had a wonderful time. I didn't take cards, instead I took a Mug Rug I needed to finish binding for one of Emsy's teachers.
I machine appliquéd the balloon & machine quilted this Mug Rug. I'm not much for hand sewing, mainly because I don't have a lot of time for it with a two & a half year old
monsta kidlet running around. I got most of the binding done at the craft group & managed to finish the rest last night.
Then when I got home I attempted to make these cute snowmen for Emsy's class today. Here is our version. I figure for a first attempt they turned out pretty good. Next time I think I will try putting the marshmallows into the freezer for a bit first then adding copha to the white chocolate so it's more like Ice Magic. I had all sorts of troubles getting the marshmallows to stay on the sticks after dipping them into the chocolate. The parents probably hate me for dosing their kids up with sugar, but I got heaps of thank you's from the kids this afternoon & Emsy loved giving them out.
So that's it from me today. I'm off to start tea in a minute. Let's hope I don't try to burn my house down again! Tupperware & stoves don't mix - go figure ;o)
Happy Crafting everyone xoxoxo
