Last year, I made these cute little turkey candies. They went over pretty well, so I made them again this year. They are made from peanut butter melts, that you can get at any craft store. I usually don't care for candy melts, but the peanut butter flavor is really rather good.

What I like most about "my little friends', is that they look so cute with any color combination. No need to fuss about being too matchy matchy!
This little guy is the last one I made. I really liked the first one so much that I did not think any others would measure up to it. But how can you not like this profile? His little turned up nose? I was having trouble finding something to make the carrot noses. A friend suggested orange pipe cleaners, I would of never thought of that. They worked out fantastic. What would he look like without his cute nose?

A few weeks ago while looking at all the pretty blogs, I found one that had folded paper into circles like these. They are not fans but they are folded in the same manner. I can not remember what blog I found it on or what she actually did with them. There seems to be so many blogs, I could stay on my computer for hours maybe days and not have to visit the same one twice! Okay, back to the fan folded circles, I thought Christmas ornaments. I can always use new ornaments. I made a few this weekend.

Raining for the third day in a row! It makes me want to sit on the couch watch movies and look through all the holiday inspired magazines, that are piling up on the coffee table. Blink and November will be gone. Time to start making lists! Food lists, gift lists and don't forget to do lists! But for now I am watching "The Holiday" my go to movie. Have a wonderful weekend!

This little church almost hit the garbage can a few times on Sunday. Sometimes what you think will be an easy little craft turns out to be a two hour long process between what you see in your mind and what you really end up with. I want to make a few more and now that I know what I am doing maybe the next one will be finished in less than two hours.
I saw quite a few of these cute paper churches and houses at Christmas time last year. But as any crafter knows you have to start your Christmas crafts very early. Early November may still be too late.

I have been thinking about making a few beaded glasses for Christmas presents. I had already bought the beads and wire and Saturday I bought a glass at the local dollar store. I only bought one, in case this easy idea turned out to be not so easy. I am happy to say, it was not difficult at all. Between the cost of glasses, beads and wire it will cost $15.00 to make four beaded martini glasses. I think that is a good deal. I better get back to the dollar store and buy three more glasses.

I have a small order for a few journals, cards and tissue holders. These are the journals that I made. The measure 4" x 6" and fit nicely in your pocketbook. I write in mine almost everyday. Nothing too personal, usually a grocery list or a window measurement. But it comes in quite handy! It is always in my pocketbook and I never leave the house without my bag.
I know that I should not pick a favorite, but I love this bird journal. I am not a big fan of pink, but I must admit the color has grown on me in the past few months. Or it could be the crown, what girl doesn't like a crown? I may not want to wear one, but they are pretty to look at.

Tonight, we are going to a 25 th wedding anniversary party. A nice way to spend a Sunday night! This is our third 25th anniversary party of the year. I decided to take the glue stick, paper and scissors out a day early and make a card. That is what I did with the extra hour! It also saves me a trip to the store to buy one, yes I do buy cards every once in a while. I also get a chance to wear the new black boots I bought on Friday!

Turning another page on the calender today. Where did October go? I have been very busy this week but not on the creative side. I know I finished a few things, but nothing new and exciting. This weekend I will be busy with other fun things, so I am not complaining! But next week I am going to get the glue, paper and scissors out where they belong!
