May 19 Happy Saturday!

Hello my Krazies!

I will have a project or Pazzles project for you later this evening. It's been a trying Saturday for me but I'm starting to feel better. I struggle with Fibromyalgia and usually it doesn't trouble me like it is today. I am in pain all of the time but it's manageable 80% of the time or so.

Hubby went to Costco and picked up nice steaks for dinner and 3  pair of snuggly socks for me to cheer me up. WOW I love that man of mine.

After dinner I'm making my way back into the craft room so be sure to check back for a fun post.

In the meantime can you follow me on Pinterest?  Click here to follow my Pinterest boards and here are a few fun websites to check out.

1.  Create a fun stick family for your blog (see mine below)  and it's FREE.  Choose how many are in your family then click on each individual person and click 'next person' until you get to the stick person/animal you want. Only took me 20 min to figure it out so I thought I'd tell you how to do it and save you the angst. You are welcome!  So what are you waiting for?  Create your stick family here!

2.  I found a very cool blog the other day. This lady Margaret has some pretty darn awesome ideas for storage and organization.  Click here to see Margaret's genius tricks

3.  So there is this frugal lady - some of you have probably heard of her - I hadn't.  She makes a lot of her own supplies with amazing results.  My favorite so far?  Make your own bakers twine!  Yep - I tried it and it worked beautifully. 2.99 for a roll of #10 cotton crochet thread and my pro markers (or copics or bic or whatever) and I have twine in any color I want - best part? A roll of that crochet thread will last you a coons age!

After you check out those cool websites be sure to remember who sent ya and come back here!  (I have abandonment issues LOL)

Happy Crafting my Krazies!  In case I never told ya, I appreciate you all SO much!




Hugs and Chirps!

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!
