Just Slap Me!

Yep, Dear Ones, just slap the silly plumb outta me!
I can not stop making little Christmas houses!

First of all, thank you for your prayers for my poor little gum!
I'm still hurting but it's getting better.
Okay...on with the show!

I've been making more little houses but these are glitterless.

I'll have to admit, I'm not as beautiful without glitter from head to toe.
I'll just have to get over that! :)

I'm showing you three little sets I've made.

Now let me tell you...these are itty bitty teensy weensy! 
See?

Each set has a church with a little steeple. 
Don't you just love it?
I added some blue cardstock behind the windows. 
Stained glass you know!
I'm so talented like that. :)

Now for the life of me, I can't find where I got these patterns on line.
But they were from a magazine from many years ago.
If I find it I will tell you.

You'll notice, windows and doors aren't cut quite square. 'Member, these are little!
Look at the tiny little chimney! 
Oh, I'm just loving this! :)

I'll tell you how I put these together. 
I had saved my pattern to a file on my computer and then printed it out on beige cardstock.
Then I picked out scrapbook papers that I wanted to use and glued my cut out cardstock pattern to the wrong side of the scrapbook paper. 
I used my xacto knife to cut out the windows and doors.
Again...teeny weeny...so that's my excuse for their crookedness! :)


I used white cardstock for the roofs and glued a little bit of red cardstock behind the door openings.

It's all in the folding and is so much fun.
I used my low temp glue gun to attach everything and I was done.
If you look closely you'll see lots of hot glue spider webs.
I chose not to glitter these to see how I liked them and I do like them.

I think I have a problem...I just can't stop making Christmas houses in July!
Lord have mercy!

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Don't Stop


If you wake up and don't want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You'll see things in a different way.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you've done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

All I want is to see you smile,
If it takes just a little while,
I know you don't believe that it's true,
I never meant any harm to you.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Don't you look back,
Don't you look back.
