What I did at work yesterday...

 before I show you Monday...let me show you SUNDAY!
This was part of my afternoon craft room creations on Sunday...

I made about 45 of these little "pumpkins"
for the preschool kids and their teachers
and the church staff.
I think they are adorable!
They hold one Hershey kiss inside!
Thanks to the Close to My Heart
Art Philosophy cartridge
(contact me to order yours!)
these were easy-peasy!
It just cut that little box shape like a
hot knife through butter!

Moving on to Monday, Monday...
Ms. Marilyn, the preschool director
came to me yesterday morning and said
"You know the "Got Pumpkins?" poster you made
for our pumpkin & bake sale fundraiser?"
I said "yes...."
"Can you please make one that says
'Got Cookies'
for our cookie dough fundraiser?"
And here's what I came up with for that...

I was calling Theresa to see where to find
the template for the glass
(splitcoast stampers of course!)
A little transparency sheet, a little white paper,
a little double stick tape
and you have a (popped up!)  glass full of milk
to go with those cookies!
A cut out cookie from the flyer
sits on a little piece of napkin
on the front of the glass---oh, my mouth is watering!
Times 7 (one is in her office on her desk!
Yep, that's what I got to do at
I love my job!
They pay me to do this---
well, a few other things, too that aren't quite as fun
but still...
I have lots of room to use my creativity
and I am thankful for that!

Then I spent the afternoon
on catnip fish production
(stuffing them, to be exact!)
and then last evening I sat down
to sew them closed and bag them.
I had help...

That's Poppa Cat keeping an eye on the box!
Yes, he conned me out of a new fish earlier
Momma's a softie!

Well, I had better go get ready for "work"!
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
