I Pinned It Then Did It! {Christmas Crafts}

Last year, I made the outer canvases with my girls - both ideas straight off of Pinterest. 

This year, I wanted to do something with them that they wouldn't have to split later on in life :) Again, the idea was straight off of my pinterest boards! I did wise up this year and added some stickles to the gold starts - it adds so much that I think I will go back to last year's tree and add some there as well!
 This year, I also made this cute wine cork tree. I personally think the cookie cutter is too large but haven't found a smaller star just yet. I hot glued everything together so I should be able to replace it easily when I do find a better size star.

My silly girl :) 
Did you make any Pinterest crafts this month? I'd love to see them! 

Dusting off the 'ole blog! {Pink Paislee: Secret Crush}

I'm not going to be one of those bloggers that promises to be better about blogging this year - 'cause it probably won't happen!

I was cleaning out my google reader feed (trying to get it to a more reasonable number of blogs to follow) and I realized that all of my old challenge blogs are no longer running :( With only a few hours on my hands to scrap, I wanted a fresh place to jump start me! Off to Google I went and I came across a site called Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. I loved the sketch challenge they had up

so I created this was some new Pink Paislee I picked up earlier today:
 A closeup of the first tooth lost! My girl loves hearts, so this paper was perfect :)
 It took me lots of tries to get this cluster right... Clustering does not come easy to me!
I hope to get to play along at this site more often :) Thanks for visiting!
