Craft Room Makeover & Special Request

Hello my Krazies!

I have a few projects I'd like to share but video taping them is becoming a pain in the butt. I do not like that little flip cam - I do much better with my phone cam.  At any rate I wanted to wish you a joyous, love filled, blessed holiday season!  Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah!  Happy Kwanzaa!  Whatever you celebrate I hope it is everything you want it to be :)

So I went to Michaels on Thanksgiving and bought a bunch of the jetmax cubes - then I spent 3 days in my craft room redoing it - again. I know, I know... it's an illness. But I thought you would enjoy a tour so here it is!



Can you help a fellow crafter?


Hubby is a restoration tech - the company he works for handles Floods, Fire, Mold, structural damage, etc. He comes home from time to time and tells me about this job or that job.  He came home a few days ago telling me that he has a very tough job that is troubling him.

Last weekend, a family in Crofton Maryland named Neale (only info I can release) lost their home in a fire. When they (hubby and crew) got to the basement he discovered a large craft area.  Many many scrapbooks. Some they were able to salvage in hopes of cleaning them up for the family. Much of the items were destroyed.

The mom in the family lost her mother recently and 2 of her brothers in 2011.  They lost 2 cats in the fire and Allen (hubby) couldn't help but feel horribly for the family.  He asked me if I could get some of my 'crafty friends' to donate supplies to the lady so she can rebuild her craft area.  I put a shout out on Facebook and had a few responses. I also talked to provocraft and they are donating an expression! yaaay.

Anyway - if you would like to donate there are 2 ways of doing it.  This is only for craft goods.

You can mail them to, or drop them off at:

Tangee Wilson
Hampton Inn BWI
829 Elkridge Landing Road
Linthicum, MD 21090

Please be sure to put your name and address and perhaps email and blog info in with the items you are donating.  I'm sure Mrs. Neale would be grateful and want to thank you.

Or, Someone suggested paypal but to be honest, I don't want to be responsible for money/cash.  If you would rather go that route how about a Michaels, Joann or ACMoore gift card?  I'd feel more comfortable passing those on to her.  They also can be mailed or dropped off at the above address.

I've sent up a January 15, 2012 deadline.  If you have any questions, please let me know kricut krazy at gmail dot com.  Feel free to share this on your blog or facebook. Anything we can do to help a fellow crafter would be most appreciated!



Hugs & Chirps!

  3. HEYYYYY!!! I just saw a post from a lady who has an overrun and is getting rid of them. Send her a message and see if she will forgo the "comment" winner and send them to someone who can really use them now.

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
