The Before ,After Christmas Craft Room Over haul!

 I told myself that the very first thing that I would do after all the Christmas stuff was down and put away that I would tackle my craft room that just seemed to have blown up along the way.
So instead of just picking things up and putting stuff in places, I decided to totally do a cleaning out of the craft room and rearranging of my shelves and tables. I was very pleased with the things I was able to get rid of to make room for the "NEW" stuff that DH got me for Christmas. Here are the beginning photos of the "BEFORE"...
What a MESS! 
My Craft Table area (ya I can't see it either!)
I took apart the side tables that were taking up space and were never used!
Scroll down to see the "AFTER" results! 

The After Craft Room overhaul

 What a job this was! This took me two days to get through everything, take apart tables and organize all the stuff that seems to accumulate in the craft room. I even put a box aside that is marked with Christmas 2014 craft projects. I'm starting early this coming up year. I have many different things that I have seen along the way and have taken pictures to remind myself what I wanted to do.
Here are the AFTER pictures of the New Craft Room.
I'm very pleased with the results!.
 Demon Dog took over the floor and got into the Picture...lol

Oval punch Christmas bows

A quick post with a tutorial to go with it.I found this really quick and easy tutorial on how to make bows using the Oval Punch.

Supplies are : DSP of your choice, oval punch, glue dots, square punch, scissors and ribbon about 1 1/2 in.

Punch out 4 ovals, using the square punch or scissors, notch the ends of two.

Using glue dots fold the other two ovals in half adhering with the glue dots.

Take the two bottom ovals and attach them
Together with a glue dot.

Now take the folded halves and attach them to the top.

Take the ribbon and wrap it around the middle and adhere in the back.

There you have it, a bow made by you!

Tube sock snowman

Good Sunday morning, I was looking around some of the things to do for christmas and on my Facebook page was this cute snowman idea made from tube sucks..I wanted to share it with everyone, this is definitely a project you can do with the kids.
1. Cut a tube sock in half (at the heel) Save the bottom half of the sock for later....
2. Fasten the end of the sock with a rubber band.
3. Stuff the bottom half of the sock with your choice of cotton or rice. (rice will keep him sturdy), and fasten with a rubber band.
4. Stuff the top portion for the head and fasten with a rubber band.
5. (For the hat) flip the open end of the sock as if you were going to pair the socks and place it on the head of the snowman.
6. Use an old strip of fabric for a scarf and decorate as desired. You can use hot glue to attach eyes, nose and buttons

Halloween Tic Tac Holders

Halloween Tic Tac Holders
A coworker a few weeks ago told me about a certain stamp set that she was looking for to make these cute Tic Tac Holders as gifts. So I did some research and found many different styles.
So for Halloween I made a few..
These actually sold really quick. So now I'm going to be making a few more to put into a gift candy basket.
Happy October!

Time For a Change

I spent this morning trying to come up with something less confusing and that will bring more people to my place. So I decided on a name change. As much as I LOVED the name Under Construction , I decided to change it to something just simple. I like simple things and simple creative things..ALL things that are creative, Hence the name change to :

All Things Creative...
Nothing needs to be changed on your end, its the same webpage address you have.

Mosiac Punch Cards for Christmas

If I could I would skip right past Halloween and head into Christmas.

Here are a few Christmas Cards using the Mosiac Punch.

                        For the above card

A Penguin Christmas Card

Good Friday morning!.
DH had to be to work really early this morning so I took the opportunity to start early in my craft room. I found this card on Pinterest (CASE) and just loved it.
What great use of the Owl Punch by Stampin Up!
I usually leave the inside of my cards blank, but this time I went ahead and stamped inside of the card.
As soon as I find this card again I'll come back and give proper credit to the creative crafter that made the card.
 (Idea and credit goes to Jeanie Tavitas-Williams)

Halloween Candy Gift Holders

I can't believe that its October already!. I am currently on a 2 week vacation and so far i'm loving it. I started my Vacation with DH and I celebrating 17 years together on Saturday. We took a little trip up North and spent the day there. The Weather was beautiful and we are eagerly waiting for that cooler weather to hit us here.
I spent today working on some gifts for October. Who doesn't love Candy? I decided to take the idea from Lisa Young for the Note Card holder and turn it into a Candy Gift Holder.
I also worked on a few Pringle Can gifts too. I like the smaller size cans, they are a lot cuter then the tall ones. I have co workers who bring them into me all the time. Until next time...
Here are a few pictures of what I've been working on...
