Some more new stuff and challenges!

Tonight I killed two birds with one stone(pun intended)hee hee. I received a package yesterday containing my four new Cuttlebug embossing folders and another one today from Gina K! Can I get a woot woot!?!? (I'm feeling so silly tonight, can you tell?) All I have to say is that Gina K rocks! I visit her site all the time and have some of her stuff but this is the first time I ordered some stamps. They're greeeat! (Think Tony Tiger here.) I absolutely love the new owl stamp set. I made this card using the scs sketch challenge #166 for my Dad for Father's Day this year. I'll probably add Happy Father's Day to the bottom right hand corner before I give it to him but I have a habit of making cards early and then changing my mind and making a new one right before the event. So, I leave the greeting off til I'm ready to seal the envelope. I also ordered another stamp set that I have been eyeballing for a few months but I'll post that one later. I also made a Mother's Day card for my MIL using the latest scs sketch challenge #173. I was so productive today, I also made a baby quilt for my friend Crystal but can't post that one for a couple of months til after the baby shower. She already knows that I am making her one but she doesn't need to see it til then, ya know. It's beautiful though, I can't wait to show you all! I finished the top today so now I just have to get the backing and binding ready. Well, I guess I had better get to bed, it's very late and for whatever reason I'm not tired at all. Have a great night!

Look what I got today!

Okay so now that our income tax return, vacation, and bills have all been taken care of I got to order a bunch of stuff that I have been wanting. Yipee for me! Today, I received the first of many packages to come, my Tilda's! I was so excited to receive them that I made a card right away.I used the splitcoast stampers sketch challenge #154. I have a long time friend that I only see about once a year and I just found out a little while ago that her husband is battling cancer so I made this for her. The inside says, "Hope, Comfort, & Peace". I also got my new watermark to work and I am loving it so much. I ordered it from Beth, she makes custom watermarks if you are interested! Well, I am off to make hamburgers on the grill for dinner tonight...doesn't that sound so good?!?!

Wedding jewelry

I have also been making jewelry for my cousin's sister-in-law's wedding. Did you get that, hee hee? So I was to make a bracelet and a necklace for each one of the girls in the wedding party. The necklace looks crooked but the crystals are free moving so that when you are wearing it they stay even. I delivered them today so I hope the girls love them. Sorry about the pictures, I am definitely no photographer.

I'm still here!

Hello there everyone, I'm still alive over here though I have been so stinking busy lately I haven't had any time to post. I finally finished some stuff I have been working on so here it is. First, I finished a Bella swap that I was in but I have already posted it awhile ago. Anyway, that's done and ready for the mail. I also made my secret pal (Jenn in Iowa) this little album using my soon to be bind it all! Mwahh haa haa! I borrowed it from Jami and I think I'm lovin it! Then I also had some jewelry to fix for her (Jenn) so I extended it a little. This is a bracelet that I made her for her birthday using Amethyst Swarovski crystals (her birthstone). Her package will be going in the mail today also. SO thanks for taking time to stop by and hope to be back on track real soon! Ta Ta for now!

Card for my nephew!

I had originally made a dinosaur card for my nephew's birthday but when I found out that he loved Thomas the Train I had to make him a train card instead. The only problem was I wasn't in the mood at all and was all out of creativity! I know this card needed something but I couldn't put my finger on it. Oh well, it was for a four year old who could care less about what the card looked like. I used the Carnival train set from Stampin Up. Sorry I haven't been updating in a while I have just not been creating much lately. I have a bunch of projects to get done in the next week so maybe I will post them when I finish.

Mary Kay

Just a note to say that I recently ordered the latest and greatest form Mary Kay (I am a consultant). Needless to say, I am not real crazy about the colors. They are beautiful just not for me so I am selling a beautiful new compact filled with three eye shadows(Sweet Cream, Sienna, and Granite), one blush(Shy Blush), and one cream lipstick(garnetfrost). I am asking $60.00 plus shipping so just e-mail me if you are interested!

Busy, busy, busy!

Hello friends, I am so sorry that I haven't posted. I have been busy like a mad-woman! We are leaving first thing Friday morning for our family vacation and I cannot believe how much there is to do in order to leave for one measly week. We are taking the older three kids with us but leaving our youngest at home with his grandparents so all the "just in case" prep work involved has tired me out. I've had house keys made for both sets of parents, legal letters made up so that he can get medical treatment if needed, letters written up with all the places and phone numbers of where we will be staying, a letter called, "A Day in the Life of Jonah" so that they would know every little thing that he does throughout the day. Whew wee, I cannot wait for this vacation to start! Anyway, I will have my laptop with me but I am not real sure how often I will get Internet service so it may be awhile before I'm back. Until then happy Crafting to you all and I can't wait to see all the beautiful things that you all have made while I'm gone. Ta Ta for now.
