Craft Dreamin'

Ok, all this time that some of ya'll have been blogging I had been checking out card making and stamping
fav spots.  Over the years I've put together quite a collection of wishful crafting idea pics.  Look at Ol' Saint Nick, he looks so jolly and bright.
Isn't this a cute way to give mints...just a little gift for teachers or fellow students or co-workers.
I love to do Snowman Soup every year and this would be a cute addition.

Edited Sept. 2010 to join into Jami's meme:

I have 2 or 3 empty drink holders right now banging around my craft room for an idea like this:
I get them at Sonic's 1/2 price drink deal, 2-4 pm (after carpool pick-up). 
I've gotten 2 bay and 4 bay holders.  I've given bath gifts with them too.
This original idea is the bomb!!
S'MORE kits

Is this the cutest idea and presentation ever!!!  I always save drink holders from Sonic for this kinda thing.
It would make a great Snowman Soup presentation as well.  Snowman soup is just cocoa all blinged out.

This is just the most personal touch for neighbors, campers, girlscout, sleepovers...
I hope you can see that the tissue has been rubber stamped..I love that technique to personalize.
They even stamped on the bag with proper ink.

These Magnolia Girl stamps are so stinkin' cute...I can't color good so I don't own any.  This is a German stamp and the art that some can do with these just amazes me everytime.  I love all these layers.
Can you girls tell I'm trying to get the crafting Mojo going??
