A few little things

Sorry I know its been a while since I posted a project but with the baby shower planning and stuff its been very hectic! It's now over so I can get back to making some more projects to post :) !
This project is one that I absolutely love to do! Its a hand dipped scented wax dipped bear. I love to make these since you can take a simple bear and for one make it smell to good then you have the option to fluff it up as much as you want. In back of the bear is another little project I was making to give as gifts at christmas time. Its just a small little glass bowl that I got at AC Moore (my favorite craft store ever) and I put floral foam in the center of it with hot glue and stuffed peppermint candies around it until it was full and completely hid the floral foam. Then I took some christmas floral picks and placed in the top to make an arrangement and wove in the 20 count lights and put a ribbon around the rim of the bowl and it makes a wonderful little christmas light.

I made this birthday card for one of my friend's daughters and she really loved it! I used just a simple background and cut a cake out with the #'s 1 and 0 and used the 0 to make a shaker with her name in the center. I made it really so she could have a double use for it since I got her a bracelet making kit and inside the 0 there are beads that she could use for her bracelets if she wanted.

I will post more cards in the next few days. Its a rainy day here and it seems like the perfect day to just kick back and make some projects. Enjoy and have a wonderful afternoon everyone!
