Merry Christmas!

Hello Everyone,
Time just got away from me.....wrapping gifts, last minute shopping, breaking toes....you know how it is. I'm sorry to say that I didn't get around to finishing the manger. I'm sorry :(....maybe I can finish it and give it to you all after Christmas...along with the few other things I havent had the time to finish. This will be the last official part of Christmas Bits. I had so much fun creating this set and I plan to do other sets in the same style....kind of a felt series if you will :) Thank you all for the awesome comments that were left for me!
I want to take this time to wish each and every one of you a very blessed Christmas! Love on your familes and let us not forget the true meaning of this season....the birth of our Lord and Saviour!
So here it is folks....Part 18 of Christmas Bits.....

Download Part 18

My youngest daughter Destiny helped with these so if they suck...I'm blaming her....just kidding....she did a wonderful job!

Again, Merry Christmas Everyone......and Thank you!!

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:11

Til next time.....

Back away from the last pearl blue Gameboy DS and no one gets hurt......

Hi Everyone,
I have been so busy the last few days and I have had zero time to post. No, it's the truth...I'm not lying this time :P I am happy to say however, that I am done christmas shopping! Yaaahooooo! It is crazy out there I tell ya! Apparently, some of the people around here are insane. I mean, babbling incoherently, no sharp objects, rubber room insane. It's finished though and after tonight, I can sit back and do what I like to do most......which is pretty much nothing......but I do it well :)

How about you guys.....still have shopping to do? Do you have your mace ready? I'll say a little prayer for those that still have to brave the crazies....and if you happen to be one of the crazies.......easy killer, nobody's gonna jack your Chia Pet out of your cart.....put your claws away........:P

Okay, I have Christmas Bits Parts 15 and 16 for you today. Nothing special, just a few gifts and some papers.......

Download Part 15

The papers are just felt sheets but I figured I would throw them in case someone can use them...

Download Part 16

These are done in brag book size but if enough people would like them in the standard 12x12 size, I'll make them up for you all. Just let me know :)

I'm still working on a couple more parts and will try to get those posted for you soon. Again, thank you so much for leaving me comments! I can't tell you how much I appreciate them!

Til next time,

God Bless,

Bears....Some May or May Not Be Polar.....

Hi Everyone,
I have finished another request for you! I liked them so much that I decided to give them to you right away. Christmas Bits Part 14 is..........teddy bears and polar bears! Now, I know what you're thinking...."Rusty, your polar bears look suspiciously like your teddy bears".....but if you look at the preview very closely, you'll see that the polar bears are white! Yep, and in my twisted little world, that's enough to call them polar bears :) I hope you enjoy them.....

Download Part 14

I'm having a little trouble with my computer right now but rest assured, I'm still working on the other requests* and will have them up for you shortly!
Thank you all for your comments! You guys are too funny :) Again, I will try to respond to every comment left in the comment area under this post so if you leave a question, be sure to check back for an answer.
Til next time....

God Bless,

*The nativity scene is proving to be a little harder than I thought but I'm still plugging away at it :)

Two Wise Men and..... The Big Show?

Hi Everyone,
I have a couple questions for you. If someone has a nativity scene...say...not me..... and the donkeys head snaps off, is it okay to leave the decapitated animal sitting next to the baby Jesus? And if one of said persons.....which is still not me.....kids lost one of the three wise men, is it wrong to replace him with one of your sons WWE action figures? Just wondering.

Anyway.....I finally have your Santa for you! I'm also working on presents, an angel and possibly a nativity scene....we'll just have to see how that one goes :) So here they are folks, Christmas Bits Parts 12 & 13....I hope you like them :).....

Too Lazy To Spell Check.....

Hi Everyone,
I know I'm late in posting but what can I say......I have no excuse. Really. Not a single one. (Does lazy count as a valid excuse?) I didn't even make it to church this morning and still didn't find the time to post. But I'm here now and I finally have the gingerbread link! :)
I made a boy set and a girl set and thought the boy set looked a little bit like he was wearing a diaper so I also made a nekkid set :)
First though....I know, "Shut up Rusty and give us the link already" :P.....I want to give you guys the Christmas like flowers that I made. I don't know what kind of flowers they are. They are not pointsettias.....cause pointsettias just dont look like this....but they are flowers.....and they are felt......and they are being given away with the Christmas Bits.....so that makes them Christmas flowers :) Still with me??? Okay, then here they are..........

Download Part 11

And once again, you can pick up Part 10 over on Nettas blog! Netta is also having a 50% off sale on her entire store right now so be sure to check that out while you can! :)

Creative Victorian Designs

I'm working on the other pieces and will get those posted for you all soon.....or I'll sit here being lazy and do nothing......it could pretty much go either way at this point :P
So til later everyone,

God Bless,

They Dont Suck Too Bad.......

Hi everyone,
I haven't been back for a while because I had some oral surgery done on my big fat head. I was doing okay until I got what is called "Dry Socket". It's wonderful! that is, If being in so much pain that you want to slam the door on your face....repeatedly......is what you consider wonderful.
I was thoroughly convinced at one point that the Dr. had removed my impacted tooth through my left ear. Yeah, it's been that bad. I am on the mend though and I want to show you a little something I've been working on.......

Now I know it's nothing spectacular, but I had fun :P and I think some of y'all might even like them :)

Anyway, I'll be posting them in a couple of days so be sure to check back! Also, if any of you can think of something that's not included in the preview that you might like to see made, let me know in the comment section and I'll see what I can come up with.

Okay....that's it for now. Til later,

Just Like I Promised.....

Hi Everyone,
I have something a little different for you today. I recently discovered the awesome talent of Misfits Scrapz! I was a little bummed out because the kits that these ladies make are tagger size kits and are not large enough for the standard size brag book pages. I was determined to find a way to use their designs because they are just...well....awesome! So I pulled up my bookmark template, scaled it down a bit and started to play :) When I was finished, I printed the final product out and guess what?! It printed beautifully!!
I was thrilled! I contacted the wonderful ladies from Misfits Scrapz and asked if I could share these with you and they said yes! Here's a look at a couple of the beautiful kits they are sharing with us......

Gorgeous! Don't let the fact that these are tagger size kits stop you from playing with them! They can still be used for many home printing projects! Bookmarks, greeting cards and invitations just to name a few! I used their "Shabby Chic" kit to make the bookmarks. Here's a look at the kit....

Love it! And here are the bookmarks :).....

Download Bookmarks Here

Please, head over to Misfits Scrapz and check out the other beautiful kits that they have created and be sure to thank Yvette and Missy for allowing me to share with you all! Also, leave a comment here to let me know if you would be interested in more bookmarks and other printables. You're input would be soooo appreciated!!

Well, that's it for now. Thanks again Yvette and Missy! You ladies are awesome! :)

God Bless,

Bad Blogger......

Hi Eveyone.
I know I said that I would be back soon but evidently, I am a liar. Yep.....a big, fat liar. I'm sorry and I will try to be a better blogger.
