Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Happy Monday! I can't believe how fast this month is flying by. I've been working on small crafts and some demonstrations for a craft show that is fastly approaching...Nov. 19. Hoping this will help promote my Uppercase Living business. Not much time left to get it all done. This is an item that I made Saturday using the glass blocks and block expression. I love these blocks-easy to assemble and versatile- not just for Christmas. I'm also making one for Jordan for Christmas to use as a bank- with his name on it-kids love anything with their name on it!

I used the 35 strand of mini-lights and some tulle to give it a snowy effect-and to hide the cord and the pretty Christmas ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
I also made this little Christmas hanging yesterday using my coasters- I only have about 760 of those coasters left! I used my new Magno-licious stamps and colored them with my copic markers- an art form that I am still diligently working on but I think they still turned out very cute! My little skating snowman is from Stampin Up and the Happy Holidays ribbon is from American Craft. The letters for noel came from UppercaseLiving, of course.

Well that's it for today. Hopefully I will be able to add more before the week is up.
