Crafting for a cause… I LOVE THIS IDEA

A lot of you already know that me and the lil man D are into something called Abandoned Art.. but this is something new to us. What a fantastic idea for a Christmas gift for the kids in your life. Some of these lil people are too young to involve in some of the charitable causes we would like to support like food kitchens and such.. but there is still a way to involve your kids in charitable giving at an early age.

This is a totally new Affiliate to me and I am so glad I ran across this one…. what a fun and unique way to involve the kids and teach them about giving.

Little Loving Hands – Kids Crafts for a Cause

It’s the perfect Christmas gift box idea  for kids who already have way too much of their own already.

I love this idea so much… If any of you decide to support these charities by  purchasing these craft kits through my links, I am going to donate the money  earned in affiliate fees  from these kits at the end of each year.  Every little counts and I think this is an idea that myself and Lil Man D would love to support.  Please share this blog post as much as you can so we can  reach as many people as possible.

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.
