Getting my Mojo back a little!

Hi all my great Blogger friends!! I am doing OK,  just taking some time to heal from the grieving of my mothers death. I have decided to quit my job at Joann Fabric and craft store. I have been there for over 3 years and feel it is time to move on. Just not sure what I will do next and not really concerned at this time. I have been able to do a little bit of crafting and hope that it come's back more and more every day. I know that it has been really hard to do this and when I accomplish a project that is a plus for me! I found this Idea on  They are the cutest owls and fun to make!

The pillow box is from Wrap it up cricut cartridge cut at 5 inches and the eyes are a one inch punch and a punch from the I-top the medium punch. wings are cut from the fabulous finds cartridge cut at 2 1/4 inch. the nose and feet are a heart punch from stampin up that A good friend gave me (Debbie) Thank you!! The pattern paper circles are a 1 inch punch. 
This basket is from a web site  and Are very easy to make. I have not checked to see if there is a cartridge that has this cut. But thelittleblueroom have a great tutorial on how to make it. This one is made with 12x12 inch square and I used a punch for the handles and lined the inside with some velvet paper that I won from a blog hop. It is great paper! Used brads to connect  the handles and a one inch punch for the middle of the basket.I used a border punch to cover the exposed brads. Here are a few more that are a 9x9 and a 6x6 square.

Hope you have been inspired by what you have seen and I hope to have something new to share with you all soon. And I want to thank all my faithful followers for being patient with me through my hard times!

Crafty Hugs to all!!
