Faux Stampin' Up Wheel Guide

Hiya!  Have you ever wanted a guide to help you w/ either your Stampin' Up or other wheels, or even the Sew Easy paper piercers --- for you to have a straight line of either stamping or stitching?  Well, want no more.  I made a faux wheel guide by using a bunch of clear, plastic rulers.  5 to be exact -- glued together using my ATG.


Here's what the "real deal" looks like:-


You get 2 in a package and they clip together to form a 24" strip.  I would have no use for the 24" size.  The other use of it is to clip it together to form a right angle, which is beneficial for creating mitered corners.  Again, I see no use for that.


So, I created my own.  


On it's side, measuring 3/8" depth.

Works like a charm!!!!  I LOVE it!!!  So, save yourself some money.  The rulers were bought at the $ store for a buck each.   $5.00 for your very own wheel/stitch guide.


If you make one, let me know.   :-)

Christmas Tree 2011

I know, I know --- Christmas is done and over with!  But I forgot to showcase our tree this year.  Errrrr, last year.  LOL


I'm usually a day late and a dollar short, so why should this be any different?!  LOL 


Here it is, in all its glory.  Isn't it beautiful??






Consists completely of blue/silver baubles, birds, butterflies, lights, and ribbon.  LOVE it!!!


Hubby retired just before Christmas, so we wanted something "special/different" for our tree.


Ohhhh, and the hubster got a "blue" Santa (for his collection) and I got a "blue" angel.


Tomorrow, I'll showcase the stash Bailey got from Santa.  :-)  Maybe take a pic of the Santa and Angel, too.  Yeh, our tree is STILL up.  We're keeping it up another week cuz it's soooooo purty!!  :-)
