Crafty Clearance Haul

I decided to share my latest  "crafty" shopping trip with you.  I know that I love to look and see what kind of awesome deals that others get on their craft items. Town is an hour away for me and when I go I have to hit all of my favorite stores and of course take my coupons with me and go straight to the clearance aisle!

and my favorite
Hobby Lobby

Not on clearance but I have wanted this little mold for a long time!

Can't wait to make some cool stuff with this!

could not pass up Tim Holt's  stuff!!!
Little over $6 for each....

Gingerbread man cookie cutters 10 cents each!
Winter time projects!

I am loving my molds....got lots of plans for these little cuties.  Love all of Martha Stewart Molds!

Lots of cute buttons for 50 cents pack.
( I am currently addicted to the buttons! thanks to my friend Tara!)

got this storage container for $10

I think that I done pretty good.  Just want to invite you to link up any project with a pun in it over at

Blogging tid bits #1

I noticed that my friend Tara from over at Craftin Desert Divas was leaving comments on blogs and it was just the blog name and not the HTML part.
For example when I leave a comment this is what I would type:

But I would rather it say:


So I asked her to share her secret with me....wanna know what her secret is?  

Here is the example that was shared on a website that I Googled.

Use this code to add a Link to a page:

<a href=“http://Internet URL goes here.”>Title the visitor sees.</a>

Code example:  <a href=http://www.example.com>Example</a>    

Hyperlink visitor sees:  Example

So here is what I will use...
<a href=http://cutonedesignsbyrobin.blogspot.com/>Cut One Designs by Robin</a>

and here is what will post :

Craftin tid bits #1

I was guest designer for Tara over at Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party #4.
I wanted to do something different so I decided to try my hand at embossing on glass.
The first time was a big flop!!!

I cleaned the jar (an old mason jar) with a Clorox wipe.
I was in such a big hurry that I did not wait for it to dry. :(

I used the versamark to stamp the image of the Peacock on the side of the jar.
As you can see when I put the embossing powder on it stuck on a bunch of places that it should not have.

Not pretty at all.
Just to be sure that it was not the embossing powder or my stamp I stamped on a tag. 

As you can see it was a very clean, nice, neat stamp.

So I decided to attempt it again. 
Can't give up on one try!

Now this looked great!  I am quite pleased! I made my first wire loopy lou also.

I think that it looks real nice.  I like working with this wire.  It is real easy to manipulate.
So what do you think of the finished version?

I am making a few to sell for Mothers Day presents.
I think that the next one will be dragonflies and butterflies or I may just surprise you.
