About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Va va voom "Ginger" Bread

Isn't she gingi-licious!!!!!
I have so many of these paper mache containers on stand-by.  I buy them when they go on clearance after the holdays are over.  I still paint them on occasion for pressies.
This one I made using paper.  We have a family party saturday and I needed something cute to put the treats in I made the other day.....  posted HERE .

I traced the box onto a sheet of brown cardstock and cut just inside the line with a pair of scissors.
The white "frosting" was also cut the retro way......Bwahahahahaaha. I had to break out the decorative scissors.   See; our lights went out yesterday and stayed off for 2 hrs. (A policeman hit a light pole about a mile from our house...he OK though) I heard the loud boom seconds before the lights went out. So instead of sitting here twiddling my thumbs, I went old school. My Cricut was sitting there looking all sad at me..... 
The skirt was a rectangle that I ran thru my crimper and hand pleated onto the box.
The treats are all inside and ready for Santa to hand out.

You know I couldn't leave well enough alone.....Bwahahahahahahaha!!!!

I'm sure one of my nephews will lift up her skirt so I put a little surprise under there.....

Until later, Cookies........Gotta split.............TFL!!!!!
