Spider Web Trio Dies and knew I just had to do something with them on a card! Instead of using the large web as a traditional die, I decided to emboss the front of the card with it! The sentiment and spider came from the Been Boo'd stamp set. I heat embossed the
scary cute little spider with black embossing powder.

My craft room is a mix of different furniture from Pottery Barn (the Bedford Collection) and Ikea (the Expedit series). When we moved into our home in 2006 I purchased this Craft Organizer from Pottery Barn. (I should probably warn that this item comes and goes every year at PB around Christmas time. If you are reading this after Christmas, the link may not work). Thankfully I did not pay full price for this baby. If you have patience, it most likely will go on sale closer to Christmas (at least it has every year since I've purchased it). When I originally bought it, I used the lower portion for wrapping paper. The unit includes 4 dowels, but I removed two so that I can perch my ribbon on them. All of my ribbon comes from Papertrey Ink, I love having my paper, ink, ribbon and button match. This system allows me to quickly view and grab the colors I need and as you can see, I still have a little room to grow.

I've been showing various pictures of the tea cart in our foyer and the displays I change out for each holiday and season (here, here and here). Decorating with apothecary jars make it easy, quick and fun to change the theme each month. One of the jars is usually filled with candy and one is always filled with these Glitter Ornament Balls.
Here's what you'll need to make these ornaments:
