ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Mrs. Claus Costume

Getting into Character for a good Cause!

My sister asked me to make her a Mrs. Claus costume for their Christmas Eve Harley ride to an orphanage in Orange County. One little girl asked my sister if she was really Mrs. Claus!!! :)

Teacher Gifts

For Christmas this year I made my daughters' teachers cards. I made 4 of each card and placed 1 of each card in a decorative tray with our family Christmas card and a small nutcracker.

Gift Card Holders

Christmas Gifts

This year I had to buy a few gift cards and it was just easier for me to buy them at the grocery store then run around to all the stores buying individual cards. My problem with gift cards is how to wrap them to make them just as special as a real tangible gift. Grocery store gift cards are bigger since they are displayed on a hanging card so I decided to make a card or holder for them. I hope you enjoy my project!

Cardstock, Ribbon, Pattern paper, Cricut sentiment, Stickers, Scoreboard and Adhesive

Score a 5 x 12 strip of cardstock at 5", 5 1/4", 10 3/4" and 11".
Glue the 5 x 5 side to the larger side of the card. After drying time, slide your gift card into the opening.

Tie ribbon around the card like a present and attach adhesive squares to hold it in place.

Glue a 4 x 4 square of pattern paper to the front of the card and a 4 x 4 1/2 square to the back of the card. Add stickers, other embellishments and a tag.

And your done!
A little Merry Christmas for a grocery store gift card!

Happy Christmas!

Our Gift

This year the hub and I decided not to buy gifts for each other. Instead we decided to get our Mastiff, Rufus, a little brother. Well, yesterday the Hub brought our new addition home and he is just adorable. He's 1/4 Bull mastiff, 1/4 Neapolitan mastiff, 1/2 French Bordeaux mastiff.

So without further ado here is our little guy.

Decking the Halls~Part 2

Holiday Bows

When I was in Jr High my cousin Michelle taught me how to make bows. She would make them for Christmas each year and I always loved how beautiful they were on her tree, garland and wreaths. I now make these bows for my Christmas decorations and wrapping.

These bows will decorate the library at school tomorrow for the Faculty and Staff Christmas Luncheon and then follow me home to decorate my fireplace.

They are made from 3" wire edge ribbon found at Costco and measure 10"x 8" with 14" tails.

3 down and 3 more to go!
