Hello Creative Friends,
I don’t have a project to share with you today. Still concentrating on working on the reconstruction of my Women’s Ministry Website. I’ve been on a break from it for quite awhile so it needs a lot of work.
I have been getting a lot of emails about the shoe craft post and I just saw another comment about them, so I thought I’d share the link to the Shoe Page on my ministry site. It’s to go with the Order My Steps Women’s Ministry Theme. There’s lots of fun shoe craft links from around the web. Some have templates and directions. Make sure you look at those Marie Antoinette Paper Shoes (Pointy-toe-slipper type) that are listed. I’ve been going to make those for such a long time. When I have some spare time I guess. Ha! I’m sure some of you will get to them before I do.
Here’s the link:

Another quick note for those looking for my Ministry Printables. They are on my ministry site as well.
Have a great week everyone!

Hello Creative Friends!
Today I’m going to share one of the cards I sent out this past month. I dont think I’ve shared this one but I did just turn another year older so I apologize if I already shared this one–might just be my bad memory. I used one of the Verve Stamps. Those have become my favorites lately. Party because of the Scripture ones they sell but also I love the Plain Janes because they are individual and I don’t have to buy a whole set that I may probably end up using only one stamp from.
I love this paper. It’s from that K&Company (Best of Brenda Walton) pad that I keep using. I thought it went wonderfully with the Stampin Up Old Olive card stock and ribbon.
I’ve been working on my Women’s Ministry Website so I haven’t been posting to my blog much as I’ve been quite busy trying to rework my whole website. Got the majority of ministry printables linked back in over there and the majority of my articles I’ve written on Women’s Ministry back up.
Thanks for stopping in. Would love for you to leave a comment while you are here!

Hello Creative Friends,
Today I’m sharing a shoe craft to go along with the Women’s Ministry Shoe Theme that I just got added back on my main website today. One of the verses for that theme is Psalm 119:133
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”
One of my favorite places for printing out crafts is over at the HP Activity Center (Hewlett-Packard). They have some really fun things over there and one of the projects is some cute little princess shoes. They are cute just like they are but I printed them out just to use for a template so I could make some different colored ones out of card-stock. I just transferred the guides of their score and cut lines to my card-stock.
Note: If you do decide to print some things from over there, read their “instructions” for each project first. Many times you need to print off just one of the the pdf pages, then turn your cardstock and put it back in the printer and then print the second page because many of their projects are front and back. When I print their projects just to use as a template I don’t print the extra pages of the projects to save on my ink.
*****Edited 5/15/12********* HP has redone their website and now you must go through the following steps to retrieve the pdf file for this project.
You can find the shoes on the HP page with their Glamour-Princess Party Kit. Go to their Creative Studio. Click on Project Types – Party Kits and Decorations - Party Kits = Glamour Princess Kt – Slipper Decoration.
I used my Sizzix Blossom Party Die for my flowers and put them together with a flower brad. I just wrote out “Order my steps” for the tag and made some dashes for seams with an ink marker. These shoes are great to hold little goodies such as small cello bags of candy. I put some Hershey’s Hugs in mine. You could also fill in the shoe with shredded paper filler and add in a few wrapped candies.
My devotional for the shoe theme, Well Dressed Feet can be found here. I did manage to get a lot of devotionals and pages added back onto my main website today and you can find all of those listed on my homepage here.

Hello Creative Friends,
I got my Creating Keepsakes Magazine this week and I saw they had some candy pencils similar to the ones I made last year so I thought I’d dig out a photo of those for those who missed them. I made and posted them last March on my old blog for a Kindergarten Graduation idea but I thought Back To School was a good time to share them again. Mine uses Rolo candies for the eraser. For some I used the pretty colored ones they have out in the Spring but the regular gold covered ones are nice too.
By the way, my husband ordered that magazine recently for me without telling me as he thought I’d like it and I thought it was so sweet of him, but I really wish these craft magazines would come up with something I haven’t done before or something that hasn’t been floating around the internet for years. Am I the only one that gets aggravated with the whole craft magazine industry lately? There’s never anything new!
Sorry, this is the only photo I could find of this project. These are rolled candy (Spree and Certs) wrapped with crimped cardstock. You could use any type of rolled candy. The erasers as I mentioned are Rolo candies, the pencil points Hershey’s Kisses. I stamped the wording on the card stock first before I ran it through the crimper. You don’t really have to run them through the crimper. They still look cute without it. I just thought it was a fun way to do them.
Just cut your card stock to fit whatever candy you use, wrap and adhere. Add a contrasting color of card stock to make the “metal” piece around the top. I crimped that piece as well but you could also just score some lines on the cardstock to get that lined effect on your “metal”. Then attach your candy tips and erasers.
These would be great for your Back to School Women’s events for a fun favor. You can add whatever saying or verse that would be appropriate. I’ve gotten a lot of email about this project. It’s always fun to hear how many people have made and how they’ve used them. I always get asked about what to glue the Hershey Kisses and Rolos with. I think I used a couple small glue dots on each. It’s been awhile since I made them. You could probably use Sticky-Strip. Some have asked about glue guns but because it’s candy you’d probably only want to use a low-temp glue gun on them.
As I said in my original post about this project–the possibilities are endless for these. Think of just the pencil color possibilities alone. A red pencil might make a cute teacher gift. You could make “birthday” pencils, “get well”, etc. Hope you have fun with the idea!
