New Do = New You!

Hi there!

I've got some projects in the works and I hope to have them posted here for you in the next few days.
But for today I wanted to share the "new me" with you. Last week I decided to chop my hair off!!
I really needed a change. I do this every few years or so :)

This is a picture of Carson and I taken on Saturday at a neighbor's party. We had a great time!!

I hope you are having a great day!!

I did it!!

I finally made something! Can you believe it? I was hoping that getting a new cartridge (or two) would help me out.

I made this card with the Cricut Lite "Bloom" cartridge, hand cut grass, stamped butterfly image, copic markers, and my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder. 

The butterfly stamp is stampin up, but I don't know the name of it. I colored it in with my copic markers and then attached some black thread for the antenna. I cut the little flower blossoms out in white and colored those with copics too. I have been having a lot of fun practicing my coloring, quite different than a box of crayons!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's about time...

It's about time I get my head back in the game!! HELLO......I'm mean, could life slow down a little? Who can I call about that, I'd like to file a complaint.

Okay, seriously, I have not been crafting in over a week. I've started some things but I haven't finished one of them. But today is the day. I went shopping last night and got 2 of the new Cricut lite carts and I even had a "light bulb" moment in the hot tub looking at the back cover of a magazine my husband was reading! Funny how inspiration can hit outta nowhere.

I apologize for not having anything for you to look at recently, but that will change here real soon!

On to another topic, Papercraft Star. Today is the start of the very 1st challenge!! Have you been over there yet? What are you waiting for? Make sure to stop by, get your project linked up, and visit our forum. Lot's of great stuff!!

I hope you are having a great day!

I'm moving!

Well, my craft space is moving anyway. 

I'm getting a craft room!! I am so excited, you can't even imagine. I convinced my husband to move our son into the basement and let me have his bedroom for my crafts. How is a girl supposed to create without the proper amount of space, I mean really....
Moving Eric down to the basement means that we give up having a guest bedroom, so if you ever come visit me you'll be sleeping on a blowup mattress from now on. Or, there is a Double Tree right down the road ;)

I'll probably have to hold off on painting it right now because I have lots of deadlines coming up real soon and I just need to get it set up and usable. But, it will get painted.... eventually. My goal is to be all moved in and settled by the end of Sunday. 

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

An Altered Frame Project

Hey all!

Last night my scrapbooking gang got together to make an altered frame. I really wish that I would have taken a before picture of my frame. Let me just say, it wasn't pretty. I picked it up at Wal-Mart for $3, it was black with gold trim. It really needed help.

I used some plain cream paper, one patterned paper, a stamp, some distress ink in Vintage Photo, lots of Mod Podge, some jute, and a couple of buttons. VIOLA!!

I really LOVE how it turned out!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the world!!

Oh Boy!

I got some exciting news! I have been asked to nanny for a brand new baby boy. We are going to visit him today and bring him a little gift. Since I haven't been crafting for 2 weeks, I decided to get my feet wet with a baby card. It's not my best, but can anything made with create a critter not be cute!?!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!


p.s. Don't forget to visit Papercraft Star tomorrow and see the announcement of the Design Team!!

I'm BACK.........

I am finally home and have my house back to myself!! It was a really fun two weeks, but I'm exhausted. I need another vacation just to recover :)

I have a few pictures to share with you today and then I will be back in the crafting game!! I am excited for Saturday because my scrapbooking group is getting together to do an altered frame project. I hope it turns out great so I won't be too embarrassed to show it to you...hehe

This first picture is in honor of my BBF Beth. If you have ever been to her blog, you'll understand why!

This second picture is in honor of another blog friend of mine, Tracy. If you have ever been to her blog, you'll understand this one too :)

Can I just say, I wanted to bring that little Kid home with me. He was the most adorable thing EVER!! He was just 2 weeks old and was so calm while I was holding him. And that Rooster was a beautiful guy!! His colors were amazing. (Can you tell I wish that I lived on a farm? Oh well, someday)

Okay my to bed I go. Have a great night!!
