Embroidered bag sets

These are some bags I embroidered for Christmas presents. They were well received. My sister (top set), who already has everything and is hard to buy gifts for, loved hers along with the personalized blanket I posted earlier. That in itself was worth it! lol  The bottom set was for my daughter. She said she will use the larger one to carry to gym and put her makeup in the smaller one.

Birthday Card

This card is for one of my dear friends. We met in 2012 on a Cricut Cruise (craft) and have been friends ever since. Treva, myself, Felisa and Sharon speak everyday via email, text or phone. They are my sisters.

I wish Cricut would consider doing another cruise as I met so many wonderful people that I now call my friends. It was an incredible fun 7 days of my life that I will never forget!

Happy Birthday Treva

Remembrance Pillows

These are some of the most heart warming gifts that I have ever been asked to make. I was a bit nervous because 1. I had never made them before and 2. I knew that these shirts belonged to a loved one that had passed on  and I needed to be really careful with them.  I did my research, utilized Google and Youtube and dove in. I wasn't ready to try to embroider such a treasure  yet so I used HTV (Heat transfer vinyl).

Glitter Wine Glasses

 This was my first time attempting to glitter wine glasses, but when you Mother-in-law asks you, at the last minute, if you can make some glasses for her and her friends  for Christmas, you do what you gotta do!

I love how they turned out, but I didn't know they need to fully cure for at least 21 days before they become dishwasher safe. I delivered them anyway(2 days later)  with a disclaimer about how to handle them for them the next few weeks. They all said they weren't going to drink out of them anyway because they were "too pretty". They're going to keep them on display!  That made my day and avoided a possible catastrophe'! lol

Key Fobs - USP & Mail Carrier

These are the gifts that I made for my UPS man and Mail lady this year.  I also gave them gifts cards. I appreciate their service, especially the UPS guy. He takes great care of my packages. Now the Mail lady, well I have to be nice to her, I found out she's a distance relative of my husband. I can certainly tell when she not delivering!

Stocking Stuffers

I made these cute little boxes to hold the hand painted tweezers that I picked up at Sally's Beauty Supply store. Thanks to my friend Brenda for posting them on Facebook. I wanted to give them to my employees but I didn't know how to add it to their Christmas gift bags.  Then I saw a post on my friend, Felisa's blog. She posted a cute little box she made to hold the ones she purchased. So I went on a hunt into the Silhouette store and found a Santa Pen Holder box.  I modified it to fit the tweezers.

The tweezers are hand painted on the front and back. The backside is painted as a reflection of the front. I thought they were so cute. I tried to match each one with the personalities of my employees. I wanted to buy them all! (but I didn't) lol
Here's some pictures of the tweezers. 
I love how each one has a little doggy. I also love the variety of ethnicities that they carried.

They were really simple to put together. Here's my production line.
