I have been busy!!

Well I have been a busy bee, I work in a school system and it has been a crazy week with the catastrophe that happened this week it seems alot of kids have decided to say and do stupid things. It was a stressful week at best. I came home each night and worked in my art studio to get some destressers. I came home one night and made gifts for my grandkids teachers they were awesome I found them on Pinterest. They were little clear paint cans full of M and M's and had a wonderful poem attached.The Poem said
You place knowledge in my hands,
that melt into my heart and live forever!
You're a "Magnificent" & "Marvelous" Teacher!
Thank you for being my M&M!

then on the inside it says
Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.
Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.
Orange is for your warmth and caring style.
Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.
Red is for my life that you have touched this year.
Brown is for wiping away my Tears.

They were awesome I made 5 of them for teachers and aides. Then another night my hubby asked me to make tiles for some of his business contacts for Christmas. I was stressing about it because it was so closed to Christmas but I was able to do all 4 in one night. They turned out beautiful. The next night I made 2 more for my boss and a relay for life auction at work to raise mmoney for cancer treatments.. The next night I had some friends ask if I would make some t shirts for them as they are doing a volleyball tournament and their team name is the Twinkies and Ho Ho's. LOL I made them 7 shirts and they to came out real well.Then I made my boss a tile that was a double one because she hyphenates her last names and I didnt know how to work that out so I just did a double letter and it turned out pretty cool.

Tonight I put names on new stockings for my family. I have looked at new stockings for a while and I didnt even think of putting vinyl names on them and they turned out really well. I think I have been more creative this week than i have in 6 months. I had a very productive week.
I hope your week was productive  as well. thanks for visiting Lesa

Christmas Presents Galore

I made 7 of these Santa Chargers and I adore how they turned out. Then I made the Joy to the World Plate with a file purchased from My Vinyl Designer and it also turned out adorable. Then Sunday I worked all day on this tile for a Secret Santa. It was a very intricate file and hard to weed so it took me 9 times to get one I was pleased with but when I did I was very pleased. I got a new machine and I havent used it much it is a silver bullet and I always just use my cougar because the silver bullet is not hooked up so I rarely use it. I think I had only used it once to test it out.. Well the 8th time using my cougar to do this plate my cougar quit responding so I had to pull out the Silver Bullet and it made the plate the first time and it was beautiful. I will be using the Silver Bullet first next time.

Christmas is coming!!

Well I spent the last weekend playing in my art studio and had a great time. I created some Christmas presents after putting up the Christmas tree.
