Crafting Compulsion?

Does this ever happen to you??? Do you ever become obsessed with the silliest things? Do you sometimes exhibit a crafting compulsion that could potentially land you in a twelve step program? Okay maybe I am being a tad melodramatic, but I think I may have a problem:) So I have been going OCD over these Lace & Doily Stickers that they are carrying at the Dollar Tree. They are so adorable, and I feel this overwhelming compulsion to get them. It’s been hit or miss for me in finding them, and I have found myself guilty of drawing others into my sickness.

My mother was able to obtain several sets…my girlfriend Jona found a few…my girlfriend Karen made an attempt, but alas there were no doily stickers to be found where she went. In an effort to appease her crafty friend, she did however find some adorable 3D garden stickers. No they were not doilies but they were hecka cute!

So to say thank you to her for redirecting my one track doily loving mind, I made her this set of mini cards using the garden stickers.

They were super easy to put together, and the turned out really cute. I even made a tiny desktop box for them to sit in, so they could be kept close at hand.

So thank you to all those crazy ladies, who were trying to help this crazy crafter in her quest.

Until the next obsession…Happy Crafting!

K Cup Box – Your Friendship Warms My Heart

The weather here in Sunny Southern California has been cold, dark and gray for the last couple of days. As a result, I have been visiting my coffee maker a little more frequently. That was the inspiration for this project. I used Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, Express Yourself and Patterned Occasions to create this cute little coffee care package. I listed all the supplies and dimensions below. I’d love to see your take on this little box, and welcome any questions you may have.
