Happy Thanksgiving Treats

Hi Everyone,
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the U.S. !! Hope you will be enjoying a good meal, time with friends and family, and hopefully some well deserved rest. 
Here is a little treat holder I made using the sweet Navajo Anya. Love her :) And I love chocolate so there you go! hehe These would be great for the Thanksgiving table if you have time or treats for your guests. My family and I will be traveling this year so I doubt they would make it to our destination primarily because I would eat all the chocolate. lol 
Anyways have a great week and many blessings!

TGF DT Post- Oona Mermaid

Hi TGF Friends,
Holly here to bring you another project. Today I am featuring one of the many cute mermaid stamps that TGF offers. This one's name is Oona. She is one of the new mermaid releases, check out the store to see her little friends. It's hard to pick just one.
I had a really good time making this card. I did some  fun background techniques using salt and watercolors. Also used some awesome gold watercolor paint to put little flicks of gold in her hair. I used the same gold to outline the card. If you haven't  tried watercolors please give it a try, it's fun and gives an easy background for cards.

Hope you enjoyed my little card today. Don't forget to join our October challenge for a fun prize. Thanks for coming by and have a good rest of the week.

TGF Spotlight Post- Hallo Bean

Hi Everyone,
Happy Fall to you all :) I am here showcasing a little project I did using the sweet little digi stamp- hallo bean and her sweet litttle kitty. So glad she is a digi so I could use her right away lol I am impatient sometimes hehe
 I decided to make a treat book :) It was fun to make, you can really put any little treat you would like in the pockets. I put my favorite little Ghirardelli-Twilight Delight- dark chocolate treats and a packet of hot cider. Little tea bags or hot chocolate packets would be fun as well. Don't forget to eat some chocolate while you are making this lol You don't want to waste them right? lol 

Anyways, hope you get some time to craft this week. Or make a fun little gift to give to a friend or neighbor. Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!

Peter Pan Shoes

I wanted to post a little project that I have been working on the last week or so. I have really missed drawing and painting lately so I decided to give painting on shoes a try! I have really missed drawing and painting lately, and after seeing a few awesome inspiration from some Disney shoe painters, I decided to give it a try. 
Peter Pan has always been one of my favorite Disney movies and it's my absolute favorite ride at Disneyland, so of course my first shoes had to be something Peter Pan inspired :) 
It was so much fun and I really got a kick out of making the shoes- haha kick- pun alert! 
I have a lot to learn still ,but I am already thinking of what I am going to do next :) 
Thanks for looking and stopping by!
