My little honey bee + some xmas projects

Look at this cute little bee! I finally found the perfect paper to use for Frances's halloween costume. I was going to use some of my halloween paper, but then thought this was so much cuter! The paper and embellies are from the American Crafts everyday and hey there collections from the A Walk Down Memory Lane store (American Crafts is their featured manufaturer this month and all AC is 15%). I also used my cricut to cut that cute little bee and added some Kaiser pearls for his eyes.

I can't believe how fast this little one is growing. This time last year I could not wait for her to be born. Now she is walking and talking and getting into all kinds of mischeif. Her new skill is shaking her head no. She doesn't know yes yet so any question you ask her she shakes her head and laughs. It is so cute. We ask her all kinds of questions- "do you want your nose wiped?", "do you want to give mommy a hug", "do you love the doggies?" and she just laughs and shakes her head.

Also there is a 12 days of Christmas crop going on over at Simply Obsessed. I posted these projects this weekend.

I created this candle by diecutting the words with the storybook cricut cartridge and then adhering them. Really easy and it looks great in my dining room.

I then used my cricut winter woodland cartridge to create this hot cocoa card.

I am glad I am getting some use out of my cricut. I bought 11 (yes 11) cartridges over thanksgiving weekend. They were all sitting on my kitchen table and my husband asked me when provo craft was sending him his thank you card. So now whenever I use it I announce "I am using the cricut now". I also discovered Frances is terrified of the thing. She was sitting next to me when I was using it and when it turned on she crawled away as fast as she could. Now she gives it a funny look every time she sees it. She is just such a little cutie.

Well have a great night. I will be back tomorrow with some Christmas cards for the A Walk Down Memory Lane christmas crop.
