Tis the Season Candy TinThis is my favorite candy tin for the holidays.  I keep cinnamon and anise candy in it at all times.   Anise candy relives coughing spells.  My Mom taught us this when we were kids.

This tin is 4 1/2 inches tall and 11 inches long.  Cream colored with Burgundy vinyl 651.  Vinyl 651 is permanent for 4-5 years.  This was cut on my Silhouette Design Edition and was a free download file from some of the talented ladies on blogs I follow.  You could cut this on your Cricut if you have an SVG file.

Snowball FightSNOWBALL FIGHT ANYONE?  This is for the indoors and has created lots of fun at our household.  From very young to very old everyone has a great time with this.   Wish we had these when I was a kid.   Oh! that’s right I’m still a kid!  The tin pails are one of kind as I purchased them last year and haven’t been able to find anymore with the cutout snowflakes in these colors.  Maybe next year they will come back.   They have 10 snowballs each made with soft stuffing and a little glitter.  The glitter is gone after one fight, but it is all over the house and worth it.

Please let me know what you think of my projects and invited you friends to join my mailing list.

Have a great day.



Snowman Tea LightI have tried to locate Darleen Adams and didn’t find her blog anymore, so if anyone knows where her blog is, I would like to add a link.  She is the person responsible for this design.  I think it is the cutest and any child would love receiving this card.  I have created a Studio file for this, but haven’t figured out how to add this to the blog.  So if you would like the file, please leave your email address in the comment section and I will send to you.

In Wisconsin we are having rain now, but they say snow is on the way.  Nothing new for us Wisconsinites; in fact it is a time I look forward to.  Love the four seasons we get.  I’ve lived in a number of places, but Wisconsin weather suits me.  Always thought I would retire to Florida, but when I lived there I felt like I was living in a cave.  No one does anything outside and people keep the curtains closed all day.  I like my sunlight.  So Wisconsin it is for me and my dear husband.  He is the best and thank you honey for always supporting me in my projects.

Thanks for stopping buy and have a great day.

Hugs Sandi

Silhouette Sights for Newbies

Silhouette Sights I have found helpful       Hello Everyone,  Hope you having a good day.  I have created a list of Silhouette Sights that I belong to; with that being said that does not mean you should go to other sites for questions.  The reason a Newbie sight was create was due to the same questions over and over again.  The girls and boys don’t mind solving problems, but first you need to read and watch videos.

Believe me it is well worth it; as there is more than one way of doing things.  A few computer you can copy and paste, but most can’t do that.  If you can copy and past then you would need to learn how to Snip-It.  Which I’ll explain later.  So browse these sites and read and I’ll be doing lesson on different topics soon.

Please let anyone else you know about my blog and thank you for stopping by!

My Hibiscus and Roses turned out fantastic thanks to my wonderful Husband.  Thanks Doug!  We moved last October and just planted them and the bloomed way more than we expected.  I thought I better get a picture before we get frost in Wisconsin.

Hope your day is great.
