He’s Crafty!


This year Xaver made gifts for everyone in his office. I offered to help but he insisted on doing his own thing. He did a great job. He heat embossed, die cut, stamped, chalked, inked, and even used Copic Markers! Tim Holtz, move over! LOL

Check out Xaver's handiwork:





I uploaded these into my gallery on scrapbook.com talking about how Xaver made them–some of them even got marked as favorites by people!!! How cool is that?!

It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.

  1. I am so impressed with Xaver’s handiwork! It’s beautiful! Funny how those men can continue to surprise us. ;)

    On another note, I used your idea for the candy bars for some last minute gifts. They a hit, but the best part was the fun I had making them while watching “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby. (He wasn’t there; he’s in the movie. ;) haha!) Thanks for the great idea.
