Christmas shadowbox

This is a photo was taken in 2004 & it was the last Christmas that my sister and I spent together. In spring 2005 she was diagnosed with Multiple myeloma. She passed away December 2005. I miss you Lydia! I've had this photo in my kitchen window since 2004 and I decided to make a shadow box with it. I scanned the photo onto a digital page and printed it. Then I added the star and jingle bells.

Your project is beautiful, Rhoda! December must be a difficult time for you. It is lovely for you to see a reminder of a joyful Christmas with your sister, though, and I hope it brings you more smiles than tears. (((Hugs!)))

What a beautiful memento. It seems especially hard to lose someone in December.

The Holy Family-Kim Bright file

This is my second Kim Bright file & I loved the way it turned out! It took an hour to cut it out and about 4 hours to weed. I just took my time and tried my best.

Nutribullet to the rescue!

I like to make my own laundry soap! There are tons of recipes on pinterest for this and the recipe that I use consists of Arm & Hammer washing soda, oxygen cleaner, smelly crystals and grated Fels Naptha soap.
When I've made this soap in the past it took a lot of time and a little muscle to grate the Fels Naptha bar. When I used the soap in the washing machine the grated soap did not always dissolve.
Enter the Nutribullet! I decided to cut the Fels Naptha bar into chunks that would fit in the Nutribullet container. I used the milling blade and it turned the soap into a very fine powder in just a short time.
I then decided to mix all of the ingredients in the Nutribullet. I was really pleased by the texture of the soap and of the way the Nutribullet made short work of pulverizing the Fels Naptha!


I made this luminary with a BooLand Designs kit, Winter Wonderland . I had forgotten to take a picture of it before Christmas. I had already packed up my battery operated tea lights so I was going to photograph it with a real candle. Not a good idea! I caught it on fire while trying to light it, but I still needed a picture of it. I was blowing on it, laughing & trying to get a picture if it before it disintegrated before my eyes! I'll bet no one else has tried to photograph a team project while it was on fire!
