Happy New Year! 2013

Hello everyone!

I sure hope you had a fantastic holiday and today is the start of a brand new year!  I'm so excited at the things I have in store (not 1, but TWO grandbabies coming!) and my plans for this blog and my crafting life.  I'm not going to make 'resolutions' because we all know how that went last year LOL.

I created a group on Facebook called 2013 USE IT!  I'm amazed at how many people joined the first day! Over 100!!!

Our plans are to support one another in the effort to stop buying supplies just cause we think we will use them someday. Use what we have.  Of course you can't go a full year with out purchasing, that would be just insane to expect such a thing.  Run out and buy your adhesives, paper you need for an already planned project, stickles new color, reinkers, etc.  But try very hard to plan your projects in advance utilizing what you have on hand.  I forsee myself running out of black & white papers and gun tape.  I also for see myself needing to make things for the babies and baby shower coming up which may need some special paper.  One baby is a girl, we won't know what the other is until next week.  One daughter is due in March, the other in July.  Son is joining the USAF and engaged.  Yes it is gonna be a very active 2013.


If you would like to join us there click here:  Facebook Group


We all got very very brave and posted REAL photos of our craft rooms as they are at that moment. No tidying up allowed.  Oh you should see some of the brave ladies!  We have a folder called "Before Photos"  Another called "In Progress" and a 3rd called "Reveal"

So far I'm the only one with photos in all 3 folders but I know there are several ladies working on theirs today.

Here is a video tour of my completed reorganized, cleaned out and cleaned up craft area.  I did get rid of a lot (cheesy stuff I knew I wouldn't use, dried up adhesive, scrap paper that won't to thru a  machine or won't be used on a card/LO etc.  Take a peek and let me know what you think.



Please check back as I'd like to have a Blog Giveaway on Friday and post more projects through the week. I was going to post a bunch of stuff I did for Christmas, but decided to wait until next season :)

Hugs and Happy Happy Happiest of New Years.

Remember:  No matter how bad your situation, someone has it worse.  Look for the silver lining, it's there, I promise!


Hugs and Happiness!

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!
