Mason Jar Lid Ornaments

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for a NEW Paper Craft Business Challenge. The theme for November Challenge #24 is "To Give As A Gift" (not just a card). It's the GIVING time of year. I decided to create a gift that isn't a card! Hope you like my ornaments! I used the lids from mason jars and painted them with primer then acrylic paint. I drew the faces with painty pens. I sealed them with glossy varnish and glitter varnish and finished them with ribbons and buttons.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you get a new ornament every year for your tree?
A: Me? I try! I love this woman who does a local craft show and makes wood ornaments and I try to get one from her every year.





The challenge runs from November 1st- November 28th! The winner gets this darling prize below.
I can't wait to see what you create! Enter HERE!

Fall Dress-Up

Hi Crafty Friends,
I know everyone is getting ready with Christmas cards these days but it's STILL FALL to me! My house is still decorated with leaves and pumpkins until Thanksgiving is over and I send out Thanksgiving cards! So, with that theme in mind I made this cute little fall girl for the November Jaded Blossom Challenge.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: When do you decorate for Christmas?
A: Me? On Thanksgiving Day since I never do anything for it, it's a day off to decorate
