So this is my December Design Team Project for Mixed Media Mojo Challenges.  The theme this month was Winter/Fun with the twist of Snowmen. I ended up being stupid busy and had so much going on that I really didn't quite stick to the theme.  I was asked to do something for a fundraiser that is coming up this weekend and the friend who asked wanted a Christmas theme. So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. Here's hoping the winner of the raffle likes it!

I started out with a wooden frame that already had a cord for hanging it up. I liked the weathered look of the frame and thought it would work well for the project.

Then I added some fun Christmas paper that I had - I think this is one of the Bo Bunny
Christmas lines.

Then I added some "snow"

And I had to do some snowflakes too.

The final touches were adding some text and other ephemera.

This is a close up of the project, along with the finished project.

This is also going to be my last design team post or the Mixed Media Mojo blog. They have been great , and really supportive, but I am finding I just have the time for it - especially with getting on the Canvas Corp Brands Design team. It has been great exposure for me and I am sure helped me get onto this newest design team. 

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So I did my second card class - this time at the High Level museum. Ended up with almost as many people - including some youngsters. I decided to do some slightly different cards for a few of them as the ones I did in Rainbow Lake were a bit more time consuming that I had thought they would be. But everyone seemed to love it and I have already been asked to do another one early in the new year.

Check out the different cards we did - some were the same as the ones I taught in Rainbow and others were new ones (ideas I got from Pinterest).

And I had some fun students - of all ages!!

It was a lot of fun and  am looking forward to doing it in the future. 
So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

As I said in an earlier post, I did not get a lot of chances to scrapbook this week, but I did get down to make one thing. My pal Jeanine had a birthday this week so I had to make her a  gift! I used one of the canvases I did in my paint pouring class as the background. She was pretty happy with it. Well then again, so was I!

This weekend I have to prep for my next card class, as well as make something for a raffle for an upcoming event. And my hubby is having a birthday party for me.

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

One of the other advantages of Paula coming up to visit is that she also brought back Jorge for me! Now who is Jorge you might ask? Well back in October, Treasured Memories (one of my favourite stores - check out the link below to their store) had a contest that I participated in. They had 8 Styrofoam skulls that you could enter for a chance to decorate and then the winner would get a $100 Gift Certificate for the store. I didn't win, but I did have a great time decorating the skull and now I have a wicked  sugar skull to show for it. Check out some photos.

And I love this project so much I am not only submitting it to Just Steampunk magazine, I am entering it on a great blog - SanDee & amelie's Steampunk Challenges. Make sure you check them out - they are awesome!!!

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
