I'm Back and Rolling with the Holidays! 9 Projects today Gals! #21-29 in CADWCA Series.

Hello again, I'm back from the Thanksgiving break and have missed you all!  It's December 1st, Oh my, panic!! But I am vowing to enjoy each and everyday and remember the reason for the season. So here are the latest in my series, Craft a Day While Colt's Away.  I did a few before I left and a few when I got back.  Get that coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy this ride.  This is a long post....9 Projects in all!
Okay, for the first three, I used Feed sack Dish Towels I got at the Dollar Store.  3 LARGE towels for 2.50..
I made a small pillow, used embossing ink and powder. I heated the sack and actually burned it to give it an aged look.
Made a Large "Joy" pillow using Freezer Paper to make the Stencil and Red Acrylic paint
I saw this Ho to the Third power (Ho, Ho, Ho) in a Boutique in Dallas and made one for my Oven Door.
Used Freezer Paper to make a Stencil, Red Acrylic Paint and Glitter Glue to Outline.
Simple Dollar Store Tags, Aged with Distressing Inks and Stamped with Christmas Words and Numbers.
I'm using them on my Christmas Packages
I took two Colors of Scrapbook Paper and cut them to equal size. I used Embossing Ink and Powder to monogram them with the Letter J in Silver.  Tied the 9 pieces together with ribbon to make a tag pad 
I used an Old Silver Tray from Goodwill that I got for a $1.00--I put a piece of Scrapbook Paper on the bottom and used my bottle caps to make magnets.
More Bottle caps with Scrapbook Paper and Glitter.  Attached to a $1.00 unfinished Michael's frame painted Black.  Covered the paper insert with Scrapbook paper.  Waiting for a picture...
This is a $1.00 Michael's Wood Cross that I painted Black and added Different Colored Marbles too..

And lastly, I took a canvas board that my Daughter, Maisie had painted and distressed.  There are so many wonderful layers, textures and colors on it.  I just put old Metal pieces on it and used more Bottle Cap magnets to make a sweet and interesting note holder! This is my favorite! Junky and Colorful.
Make it a Wonderful Day. 

Linking up to these Wonderful Parties!
