Gotta Love The Hot Glue Gun…

HI there!! I thought I’d blog really quick this morning! Wow.. it’s early.. and it’s Saturday.What is up with this? LOL. So, as I told you in the last few posts, I have had “creative block”. I hate when this happens. So, when all else fails, I go to a few great resources, Stampin Connection, Stampin Success Magazine and my most favorite, blog hopping. Kimberly Van Diepen made these adorable ornaments. Honestly as soon as I seen them, I fell in love with them. Seriously! So, I just had to make a few .. and a few more. It felt good to get away from the techie stuff / kitchen stuff Ive been trying to work through lately and just sit and get inky and burn my fingertips with the hot glue gun! Yes, that does hurt and PLEASE be careful when you use your gun.. yowza. I got the tip of my middle finger. It’s not pretty, I tell you!

So, are you ready for my little gems? Thank you Kimberly for kickstarting some creative juices to flow again. I was just so happy to have the time to make these………….
