Some New Old Stuff

I'm just now posting some stuff I made last year, but it was because they were accepted for the Cricut Magazine publication and then I just forgot to mention them here after I had the all-clear.

It can be tough to keep track of what you've made, what you've posted, what you can post and all that other "fun" stuff that comes with blogging and my so-called creativity.



Last year I found these adorable foaming hand soaps at the dollar bin at Target. They came in the cutest colors and scents. I just could not resist! Some even had pretty satin bows already. There are only 2 of them shown here in the brown. I used vinyl on them, which I learned can be a treat to work with in these smaller sizes. I can't help it though, I just think they look too stinkin' cute! I have not seen these since the spring of 2011, so if you look for them, you may not find them anymore, but I don't get to Target too much and I could just be missing out on them when they have them in stock. Just consider yourself warned....

Oh, and did you happen to notice the box that three bottles are sitting on? Sometimes at craft shows, I need something to give me some height while still making the display look nice. I took some sturdy empty boxes and covered them with the craft/gingham wrapping paper and added a decorative strip of plain craft paper around the outside & then used a border punch for a little more interest.


I don't know if I have photos of the other bottles that I made up or not. Of all the bottles I sent to the magazine, they only published one, and that one isn't in this shot. sorry. I may have time later to see if I have a picture of it. If not, I have it in the magazine. 


That's it for me today, I have our lovely annual income taxes to finish up on for my meeting with the accountant in the morning. From my best calculations (*snicker!*), we might just miss receiving the Earned Income Credit. grrrr! This is that one time that I pray I'm wrong! It could mean getting an extra $3,000+ back in a tax refund. Who couldn't use an extra 3 grand?


TTFN!

These are so cute.
Wow, 3 grand, you could get a lot of scrappy goodness with it, lol.

I WISH I could use that on scrappy stuff, but it will either go for a remodel project or pay off a bill with the rest going into savings. I'm not holding my breath that we'll be eligible for it though. :^(
