I know I have been MIA, the holidays have had me wrapped up in family and rediculously busy.  This time of year gets me so stressed, I feel like I cant breath until we hit the new year.  i have been feeling sooooo guilty for not posting anything in so long but I had some spare time and wnated to share this really cute and easy project I did that ended up being my mom's christmas present.  I bought a package of 3 flamless candles from Ross or Marshalls (I can't remember) and coverend them in Stampin' Up! Comfort Cafe DSP, using my favorite, Mod Podge.  I saw this idea originally on Pinterest with regular candles, but I love the idea of flamless candles so they never burn down.  I also picked up a few ceramic tiles from Home Depot and covered them in the same patterns.  The tiles are also mod Podged and sprayed with a waterproof sealant, now they are coasters!  She loved it all and as soon as she got home she made a spot to display them all on her table, Merry Christams Mom!

Triple challenge attempt

Here is a card I came up with for three of this weeks blog challenges.  I am submitting it for Mojo Monday challenge MOJO270, Black Tie Friday's #11, and Dynamic Duo # 31 challenges, wowzers!  I used the Stampin' Up! Betsy's Blossom stamp set, and Stampin' Up! Twitterpated DSP.  I think it came together nicely, let's cross our fingers that I'll win one this week!

So as the holidays near I have definetely been creating more 3D projects than ever before.  Here is a set of four candles that have been plain cream colored candles in glass jars forever.  They sit in candle sticks either on my table or on my mantle for the holidays.  This year I decided to give them some festive flair.  With the help of my friend Alyssa, I swear that girl is like my second set of eyes, we did some late night crafting and came up with these.  I Love how they turned out, they look so cute and add that perfect holiday touch I was looking for.
