Crafting all the Way

 I saw Jean's cute reindeer noses, and knew I had to make some! She has tons of great Christmas crafts too:)
Here is the text that I found off the internet for my tag:
Rudolph has a job to do
Every Christmas Eve, it's true.
His nose will always light the way
For Santa and his tiny sleigh,
But if his nose should ever go out
Don't cry or whine or yell or pout.
Take out this bag and use a bit.
From Rudolph's Red Nose repair kit!

I wanted to do a cookie exchange, and of course I pick one of the few days of the year that it rains...I had to hold it at the park, the house is a mess ;) I tried to make whoopie pies, we called them whoopie cushions, the cookies never spread for me. The were like little boulders! So, to compensate I made up little baskets for the cookies. After I saw Michelle's tutorial I finally knew what I was going to do with the clear ornaments I had been saving for three years!
I really love to see everyone's creativity on the internet, it really gets me inspired to craft. Do you have some favorite blogs to get the creativity flowing?

Playing Dress Up

One area that i really want to improve on for the new year, is to get more pictures of "us" the parents, with the kids. Hey, maybe  we'll even get a few of mom and dad by ourselves!!
Dante had his school program last weekend, and we all dressed up for the occasion.

Fantabulous Cricut Deck The Halls Crawl

Welcome to Crafty Go Lucky and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 

In honor of the approaching Christmas holiday, we're having a "Deck The Halls" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Christmas/Holiday-themed project that could be used to decorate and spruce up their homes for the Holiday Season!

If you've come from visiting Sherri at Love, Laughter, and Creations! By Sherri, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE 

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

For my project...I used the Cricut Lite Cartridge Jolly Holidays to make a mitten banner! I used a varitey of papers, (even some leftover Valentine paper from last year)to cut the mittens. I then punched a hole at the top of each mitten, and threaded some bakers twine to attach the mittens together.

Would you like the chance to win the above prize? Just leave a comment on this post, and for an extra entry become a follower, or let me know if you already are one!!
Now it's your turn! Let's see your Christmas/Holiday-Themed Decor projects!  Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project!
You have made it to the last stop... so head back over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!

Cricut Cardz Challenge #53

  I sneaked away a little bit of time to make a couple of tags for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #53! I am going to give a huge singing deer head as a white elephant gift, so I needed a cute tag to spruce up the trash bag it will be carried in ;)I used my new favorite cartridge Jolly Holidays for this project.
