First Day of Autumn!

My sister's and I are getting ready for our annual craft fair at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland, Maine on Saturday, November 5th! This is one of the items that will be for sale. I painted the wood black (found it at Goodwill for $2) and then used IOD's transfers! IOD moulds and transfers are beautiful and so easy to use. Several people have said that it looks like the flowers were painted. I agree but they were not!
This is an item I worked on last month for the fair too! It is made from an oatmeal container. You can use it as a gift box or a centerpiece for your Christmas table/party! I love it when I can recycle something like these 2 items!
Lastly, I have seen so many of these upside down wine glasses made into candle holders. Making little vignettes in the bottom of these candle holders are fun to do. Any theme can work for these cute wineglasses/candle holders. Again I got the wine glasses at Goodwill for $2. Recycle is the theme today! Thanks for stopping by but before you go check out our Etsy shop just search for cooksistersdesigns

September Birthdays!

Here are a few cards that I was asked to make for my daughter's friends birthdays. This first one is a Z-fold and is for her friend who has horses. The horses are cut from my cricut and I love how they came out. Happy Birthday Erin!
This card is a card in a box style for her friend who just got a new bike! The bike is a Stampin up stamp set.
Lastly, this is a punch art card for a beer lover. I thought it came out pretty cute!
I finished a kimekomi earlier in the summer to sell on Etsy. It has a gnome on one side and a Christmas tree on the other. The stand does come with it but is not attached. Check out Cooksistersdesigns on Etsy for other items that we have for sale.
