Catching up - Fairy House & Grandma's Attic Charm Dangle

In the future I will do some tutorials and give aways, but for the first post I thought I would just show some pictures of a few recent creations to get the blog started. Since I'm doing more than scrapbooking I decided to make a new blog to show more of the fun crafting items that I think make life more full.  Everybody should try something out of their comfort zone! I swap with two swap groups, for scrapbooking items IASST (It's a Scrapbooking Swap Thing) and for items such as altered items, flowers, charm dangles and stick pins there's CSI (Create, Share, Inspire) both are fabulous with great ladies. If I don't mention either IASST or CSI after a photo then it was just for me, my family, or to sell on ebay or etsy. 

I have a teenage son and 25 neices and nephews, loads of family and friends of various ages that keep me scrapbooking and creating.  Oh, and of course some fantastic upcoming holidays (Halloween is my favorite) so keep checking back in!

Grandma's Attic Dangle - Charm Dangle Swap for CSI (Create, Share, Inspire)

WISDOM Card - for graduate to give to a teacher

and a carry over from a Swap for Altered items-the challenge was to alter an empty milk carton (I used a whipping cream pint carton) into a house of some sort.  The recipient gave a color choice.  The lady who I made my house for was Jimmie B. (CSI) and she said pink with some black somewhere, so....the fairy house! This is definitely going to be an addiction....

This is the back-so not as ornate
The big flower is handmade out of Bazzill Tutu Pink --gotta love the BIG Ole BEE, she is about 2"

Chimney must have eggs!

Every fairy needs a fish pond in front of her house! This one is made of broken blue glass, a bronze fish charm, and some Glossy Accents to keep them hanging on the porch with some moss :)
