White on White Canvas

Merry Christmas to everyone!! I wanted to pop in and share a gift that my husband and I made for his mother (yes, my husband actually got a little crafty with me)!! :o)

The photo below was our inspiration. (photo credit:
My Mother-in-law saw this and just loved it. Being a crafter, I looked at it and thought easy-peezy, I could whip one up for her in no time. So I purchased a white canvas, white spray paint & white 3D letters that I found in the scrapbooking section of my local craft store. Now, I do have a Cricut so I could have cut them out of chipboard or foam sheets myself, but I was looking to do this as quickly as possible, so I purchased the pre-cut letters.
The most time-consuming part of this project was getting the correct layout and spacing that I liked. After that, I just used a little craft glue and glued the letters to the canvas. As you can see, the store ran out of white letters so I had to use black for two of them. It will all get covered with white spray paint, so I wasn't too worried about it.And after several coats of white spray paint, here is the finished product!

You wrap each of the chocolate nuggets with the decorative papers, arrange in them in the candy dish, tie a ribbon around everything, embellish it with a gift tag and you're all set.

Peppermint Twist Mocha Spa Socks

I had a hard time finding enough brown fuzzy socks to make all the gifts I had in mind, so here's another twist on the cocoa fuzzy sock gifts... a peppermint twist! I also etched this glass mug with a "T" to give it a more personalized touch.

I've been trying a new art form lately - Hand Stamped Necklaces. I haven't figured out yet how to take a decent photo of these (they are sooooo shiny)! But, this gives you the general idea...
