Birdhouse Series #6

Celebrations this month at Crafting Happiness Challenges!
Any type of crafting welcome.

****************

This looked like it may be a bit of a challenge to make...
but I was wrong.  It was a breeze.

I love this one sitting at the top of a tower, and the pretty gold accented paper for the birdhouse. I also used a mix of cardstock and wood pattern paper for the roof. I think it turned out so sweet!

I love these 3D scenes!
This came together very easily with just stacking the layers on top of each other. You can play around with the cardstock colors and get different affects with the same images. 


Here are all 3 of the scenes together.

Exciting News

Good Sunday morning to you!!

First of all, I want to thank ALL OF YOU for visiting my blog daily & for those who leave me comments. I appreciate your visits so much, and love reading your thoughts.  If you are a visitor and maybe you don't comment, I'd love to hear from you too - it not only boost my spirit, but gives me a connection to my readers :)

Second, Exciting News!
Last month my husband, Tom, & I began a brand new business!  

Moose 42, LLC


Right now we are working on our website and Etsy presence (both in the works, neither live yet), researching local craft show dates, and all the things associated with starting a business. 

Here's a sneak peek of just a small portion of what I created last week... 
These items are available for purchase now.





Now & then I'll pop in admist my paper crafting to share some woodshop project photos in progress. Once our online store goes live, I'll post links for you here on my blog. In the meantime, if any of you have projects you'd like to see in the store, don't hesitate to comment below. We will be offering custom items as well. Our store isn't even live yet, but our busines is and we've already gotten multiple custom orders we are working on now! 

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Let me know what you think about the earrings and heart box.

Gotta run... things to design, cut, and assemble. Hugs!!

Here's a puzzle I completed in the first days of December.
500 pieces, and overall it was a smallish finished size.

I thought it was a Polar Bear. LOL
