Just a quick post today. Now that all of my orders are completed and delivered I can finally take a break and enjoy what's left of the holidays. But first things first.....I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We took this picture last weekend at the Honolulu City Lights. I wanted my husband (Bobby) to take his hat off for the picture but his hair was all flat from wearing it all day! lol! Standing between us is our daughter Whitney and our son Dallas. Anyways, please be safe and may God bless you all.

My daughter needed something to put her friends birthday gift in and I just hate those plain gift bags that you buy in the stores, so I went to work and this is what I created. This box / bag is pretty big, unlike the one in my previous post. The overall dimensions is 7" tall x 11" wide. The inner box is 6 1/4" long x 5" wide x 3" deep. I had planned to add straps for the bag part but I didn't want to punch a hole through those cute balloons.....I should have done it before I stuck those balloons on.
Okay, so I didn't quite get Hello Kitty out of my system yet, but just take a look at this Hello Kitty in an elf suit....isn't she just the sweetest!? Well, I'm still trying to create new little treat boxes for Christmas since so many of my customers have children still in grade school and they would like something small to give all of their classmates. After much thought I came up with this at around 1 o'clock this morning! (no, it didn't take me all night to make....I was also creating another box that I'll show you in the next post). Anyways, this box stands 6" tall and is 2" wide. It's big enough to hold 8 or more of those regular sized candy canes or other small treats or trinkets.

A friend of mine asked me to make her a couple cards. The top card is made with Quarterback Ian from Pink Poison. She wanted a thank you card for her sons pop warner football coach and luckily I had just received my Ian stamp in the mail the day before. The teams colors were black and blue and being the Dallas Cowboys fan I am, I had to use that cute little star dp.
The second card is using the adorable Nurse Anya, also from Pink Poison. I just lover her! My friends aunt has been in and out of the hospital and she wanted to send her a get well card. When I first bought my Anya stamps, Nurse Anya was sold out...and I finally got her! Now I have the entire Anya set! I just love those cute little girls!

I whipped up these little cocoa packets for the craft fair yesterday. I figured they would make a great little gift for the kids to give their friends for christmas. Something small and inexpensive but cute enough to show someone you care. We have more styles available but as usual I only took pictures of Hello Kitty and that sweet little Angel Anya.
These cute gift bags contain our manicure sets that we also had in our small pails in an earlier post. I initially bought them with the intent to make more pails since they sold out at the fair but the new kits I found didn't fit into the pail. So at the last minute I came up with these. I know everything I've been making lately has Hello Kitty on them, just bear with me, I have had a lot of orders for her. These kits include: 2 nail polishes, nails, nail jewels, nail file, and 2 lip gloss.
This was our last craft fair for this year. Thanks to those of you who came out to support us. Here's a picture of our booth, yes I know it was very small but that's what happens when you sign up late! They give you the smallest booth and throw you outside! All kidding aside, it was my fault for signing up so late. To tell you the truth thank God we had a small booth cause this is all I could whip up since the fair we did at the Blaisdell wiped us out! Before I forget, I would like to thank my Aunty Lianne from Chassy's Creations for coming out to help us (even though she wasn't feeling too well). She even brought some of her stuff to help fill my booth (and yes, once again I didn't take pictures of it! I took this picture before she got there....I swear I'm not doing this on purpose! lol!). Thanks Aunty, you rock!
Below we have my sister Cheri, owner of Never Satisfied Clothing. She had the booth right next to me. I know I've been promising you pictures of her clothing line and sadly enough this is all I have. She was planning to have people modeling her clothes so we could do a photo shoot but in all this craziness we haven't had the time. The second shot is a close up of her shirts (next time I'll remember to take them out of the packages!).

Just a reminder to let you all know that we will be at Kapolei Elementary Schools craft fair tomorrow from 9-3 (I think I told you it was from 9-2 in the last post). Well, this is the school's first annual Ho'olaulea and there will be crafts, food booths, entertainment and rides so come down and bring the family. Hope to see you there!
