It’s shakey shaker window time again…

I just got a new batch of shaker windows in..  new shapes and sizes.  This time I have 3″ Square, 2.5″ round and some 2×3′ rectangles to add to the 3″ circles I already have.  I haven’t had a chance to bust them open and make any projects yet…. but expect to see some later this month. These are all 1/4 ” high as usual, so lots of room if you want to try out the fun shaker card games I make.

In the meantime…. leave a comment below telling me what new craft goodies you just got, or what you would make with these….and I’ll pick a random person and send you a mixed pack to play with.  And since I am feeling very nice and relaxed after my much needed mini-vacation… I won’t even restrict  it to US only entries this time.





































October 2017 Crafty Awesomeness Challenge

Well here we go again….. It’s almost time for  Halloween!  who’s ready ?

Well I thought I would try something different and threw down a little theme for my ladies… and of course my ladies threw it right back at me lol.  Thanks girls lol.. that is what I love about this DT team… we are exactly that A TEAM and we all take charge of our crafty destiny.

So I throw out Black on Black with one additional color if needed … and I get back….

 

..and this is why I love my ladies lol. Everyone is perfectly happy and comfortable enough with each other that bending the rules and doing as they please is totally cool…and so beautifully done too.

All teasing aside..  the black was just an idea I had since Halloween was approaching and we rarely see Black on Black and it was something I wanted to play with.   And let’s be fair.. not everyone is like me and would love a Black on Black wedding card, or sympathy card haha.  If you haven’t tried it… it’s definitely a fun one to play with.

I have visitors coming in from out of state…  and still caught up with jobhunting and such, but I will try and get my project done ASAP.  I did do one, but was too impatient and already posted it last week lol…so I need to make a new one for the challenge.

Ok… so winner announcement for the September Challenge.. will be posted later night.

And I am sponsoring this month’s prize…. which is>>>> a $10 Gift cert for

Bargain Hunting on Ebay again

I was taking a break and perusing Ebay again looking for some bargain deals for me and the  little guy to add to our wishlist… and ran across these goodies, so thought I would share them for  anyone interested.  A lot of these are from overseas sellers, so expect a wait  to get your goodies.  There were  so may great finds added to our wish list, but here are just a few of them.

Embossing Folders by  seller 15oceaneshop

There are a lot of fun new designs to choose from and I didn’t see anything priced over $2 in this batch.  Great way to pick up a bunch of designs if you are new to embossing, or if you just want to bump up your design stash.

I particularly like this one… no surprise there really since  I love the Steampunk and vintage stuff so much.  Some of you may remember my adventures in Playdoh a while back… I love embossing folders like this… they make great image presses for Playdoh or Polymer Clay projects too.  I am very into  multifunctional crafts lol… I like to get my moneys worth out of things we buy… so if I can find more than just the traditional purpose for them.. all the better  🙂

Clock embossing folder

Talking of Multifunctional… I love Silicon molds,  these are  great for  icing and confectionary of course, as most are intended.  BUT … they are also great for Plaster of Paris, Polymer Clay and Embedding Resin projects.  Someone asked me once if they could be used for Paper clay projects.. I still don’t have an answer to that one.. but I am probably gonna try it one day  LOL.

I found a bunch of cool molds that would be  fun to play with…. these particular ones were listed by homesale_sky and  this is just a handful of the really cool molds that caught my eye.  These would be great for decorating mix media, upcycled projects or jewelry making.

I also found some really cool metal dies which are definitely going on  my wish list…

3D bridge

Bubbles/ circles
Our Ebay wish list is growing …. lol.

I will be compensated for purchases made through affiliate links on this page

Crafty Awesomeness Challenge September 2017

Wahoooo…. September is here, and for a lot of you that means SCHOOL!!!!  And that also means peace … at least for some people lol.  It’s also the start of the end of summer… unless you live in Texas ..in which case.. ya’all got another 2 months to go haha.

I am sure by now most all of you are well aware of the  last few days in South Texas.. our thoughts are with ya’all if you live there, have friends, or family there…or have headed that way to help out.  The response has been amazing and we have  a lot of  these families in our locality now in shelters.

I have to say.. Texas really does step up to the plate  in times of need.  We  had so many people here from Katrina in need of a fresh start, and now North Texas has done it again for our Southern neighbors caught up in Hurricane Harvey.  It’s a reminder of how bloody awesome this country can be when the chips are down.

This month we have a mix of images by our sponsor… Rick St Dennis. His images are quirky and fun and a touch… DARK… for those of you who like  to take a little walk on the darkside now and then..MUHAHAHAHA.


Check out these fun projects by the DT team, and mine is running late.. yup again.  But it’s almost finished so should be posted this weekend.  I got a bit over adventurous on this one… but I love how it’s going.   Great projects again ladies !!
