May 23 - a very special day indeed!

Well, no project for today because it is a very special day in our house!  Today is my wonderful husbands birthday!  Yay!  I have to get my butt in the craft room and make him a card and then dinner with the kids tonite at Chevy's tex mex!

This is my wonderful husband Allen. He is very supportive, loving, caring and an awesome dad to our 3 goofball adult children.  He is truly my best friend and soul mate.

Last nite we met up with my childhood bestie Anna and her hubby Mike for Steamed Crabs.  Anna & Mike live in Hawaii and come 'home' once a year or so and we always do crabs.
This is a Maryland thang and lots of people just don't understand. It takes a LONG time to eat steamed crabs so normally it's a social thing. We used to have Crab Feasts in our back yards growing up, the dad's would go 'crabbin' in the morning and bring home a bushel of crabs to season and steam with beer and Old Bay and boy are they yummo!  My fantastic hubby will occasionally pick a crab but not often and he sits there patiently each time I pick through crab.  There is no taste like it for me and Marylander's put crab on everything! Toast, crabcakes, crab fluff, and lots more (I won't do my Forest Gump Shrimp Scene using crab, you are welcome)  SO yummy!  Or as Sophia Grace says "It's SO good" in her cute lil english accent (check it out on youtube just look for sophia grace and rosie)

Ok quick story about Anna.  She and I were 7 when we met and we are now 4(mumble mumble mumble) it is a friendship that has stood the test of time and lots of moving for both of us (me military wife, she government employee who transfers often) but we always manage to see each other as often as possible.  I started to look for a pic of us as kids but it became a chore looking thru my files.  I need to do some scanning for sure but here we are!  They head back to Hawaii the first of June and then are moving to Australia on June 15th. Oh how I will miss her :(

I am SO lucky to maintain my friendships.  I am still friends to this day with my middle school, high school, college and co-workers that I have bonded with.  Not acquaintances mind you, but people that are very important to me and always will be. So this is to you Anna, Debbie, Annette, Karen, Laura, Shannon & Ronnie. We may go years without seeing each other but we stay in touch and will always remain a part of one another lives cause we are FF's  (Forever Friends) I love each and every one of you so very much!

ok I'm pretty sure if you are still reading this, I bet you are sick in bed and have no choice.  I'm sorry for the ramblin on but today is a special day indeed and i just wanted to share it with YOU KRAZIES!

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. 


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!
