10/14/21 What's New this past week ?
I've eliminated the Blog. It's a time issue thing. The Blog was taking up valuable time to basically repeat the things found here. I would rather put that time and effort into giving you an Awesome Website, rather than a mediocre website and a mediocre blog.
We're giving more time to the Crafty Fun Cuts Page.
I've added a Step by Step Tutorial on making Vinyl Decals for your projects. It's aimed towards people who are just starting out, so the instructions are simplified and SPECIFIC. AND it's Printable
We're adding a star rating to our Cricut Projects so you know what your getting into before you start. But with the work we (By we, I mean Traci :) ) has already done on the projects they should not be that hard and instructions are easy to follow. She's already cleaned up all the files and simplified them.
I've added Cupcakes to the Fake Bakes Page and I am working on Printable Files for those too.
I am currently working on a Gingerbread and Candyland Page, that will coincide with the Fake Bakes and Christmas.
This is the Glue Gun all my Crafting Groups are talking about, Dual Temp AND Precision Point !!! It's worth the $9 to try. Mine's on order.
I'm still working on organizing and laying a solid foundation for some of our pages. One of the changes is The Pumpkin Page has had a face lift and more things added. The Pumpkin Page is a "Spin-Off" of the Halloween Page and now a "Spin-Off" of the Fall Into Thanksgiving Page. It kind of made sense to put all things pumpkin on one page. We've added more including NEW SVGs
Pumpkin Crafts, Ideas for carving and painting pumpkins, Clipart and SVGs and MORE
Up until now we've kind of ignored our Facebook Page and that was a mistake. This is a place where you can give your feedback AND see what is new or maybe something not so new that you didn't notice. We are posting at LEAST 4 times a day. FOLLOW US

We've Got lots Of Ideas !!!!!
Fake Bakes are Here !!!
They are under the Crafts Heading
Looks Good Enough To Eat, Right ?
What are Fake Bakes ?
Fake Bakes are Craft Items that look like food, that will last permanently AND No Calories.
What's the Point ? These are decorative. Wouldn't that pie be cute on a Coffee Bar ? It's FELT !! The "Filling" is Potpourri so it smells good. Or the milk shake on a shelf in the kitchen or use it for a party decoration that won't melt all over. (It's made with Wall Spackle) There are lots of Halloween and Christmas items in the works to add to your seasonal decor. Christmas Gingerbread themed items are so popular and expensive. They can be made easily and a whole lot less expensive. Cakes, Ice Cream Treats, Candies, Cookies. Wouldn't a cute display of Christmas Cookies be cute on your table for more then the 5 minutes they last til the kids get a hold of them ? (Yea the real ones are in the cupboard waiting for when YOU decide they should be eaten :) )
Fake Bakes Page should be up and running in the next couple of weeks, complete with instructions !! Like the Gnomes I am just learning this and will take you on a step by step journey with me. I can't believe I've spent 20 yrs trying to make cake look like real things and now I am learning to make real things look like cake ???? But it's totally addicting, stop back by and check it out !!!
Step by Step Instructions for Pool Noodle Gnomes
The Gnomes are in for an Upgrade. Soon the Step By Step Instructions will be in a PRINTABLE PDF format.
Traci is working on a pattern to replace those impossible to find Dollar Tree Baby Shoes !!!!!!!!
In the meantime have you tried this silicone feet mold from Amazon, you just fill it with Hot Glue and you have feet in minutes .. A little bit of Mod Podge and Dirt and you have Dirty Feet !!!!
Another NEW Gnome
"I'm Lovin' It"
Directions for the hamburger can be found on the Sock Gnome Page
Crafty Fun Cuts is a page that offers SVG Files both simple and the more detailed.
If you don't have a Cutting Machine that's fine too, PDF Files are also available where feasible. Just grab your scissors.
SVG Files are starting to appear through out the whole website, so you can find them on the various pages too.
Downloadable ZIP Files
We have added downloadable ZIP files that contain both the SVG and the PNG files. Simply click the Picture, Icon or the link for your download to start automatically. Most of the pages have this option although I may have missed some AND I am adding more SVGs all the time. So check back often.
Unicorn Cupcake Wrapper SVG
Unicorn Cupcake Wrapper PDF
Unicorn Cupcake Liners

"Stealing" Clipart AND the SVGs is now easier. Simply click on the clipart you want and it will automatically download.
