WOOOOO, it might be freezing outside, but it is warm in my crafty area!

Helllllllllloooooooooooooooo!  How are you?  Fab?  Super fab?  I hope so!  It has been crazy busy around here, but I have still been able to sneak some crafty time in.  Here are a few pics of what I have created the last few weeks ~

Some fun ornaments ~
Here are a few close up shots ~

I played with some fun buttons that I received in a Blog Candy package from my friend Patti.  It was Ah-mazing!  Loaded with alllllll sorts of fun things.  I grabbed the buttons and made the wee little wreath ornament, it only took a few minutes to complete.  Thanks Patti!!!  :)  Here is a peek at the wreath while it was under construction ~

A few more ornaments or package decorations, I used some of the fantastic Twinkling H2Os for lots of shimmer and shine ~

Here is a side view of one of the clips, I used wee little clothespins, now I can easily attach these little angels to the tree, a wreath, or a package ~

A close up view, can you see the shimmer?   ~
Cards, this one created with a stamped sheet of cardstock that I painted with the Radiant Rain Daubers (took about 15 seconds MAX to cover a whole sheet of cardstock, LOVE the sparkle and vibrant color), and of course used my quick and easy Distrezzer to distress some of the edges ~

Another card I made, this took about 2 minutes to put together ~

I also used some of the beautiful Bazzill Cards and Envies that Patti sent me, sorry I forgot to take a pic.  I will share those next week.  :)
Then this afternoon I made the YUMMIEST Chocolate pecan Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies.  I will definitely be making a few more batches to share!   

I hope you are enjoying the month of December.  It has been kind of wild here weather wise, but then again, it is December.  Hope you are all staying warm and dry!  OK, I am off to wrap a few presents, so take care.  Have a joyful and creative week ~ Pam

The button wreath is a great idea Pam ... I have heaps of shirt buttons I didn't know what to do with ... thanks for the tip. You certainly know how to keep yourself busy.
Have a great Christmas!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
