Hey Krazies! Thought I ran away didn'tcha?

Happy Happy Summer my crafty friends!

As you know, we were blessed with our very first grandbaby in March and after 7 weeks in Pediatric Intensive Care she was able to come home.  She is now a chubby happy baby and 4.5 months old!  SO excited. Krystina took her to the beach last week to help celebrate her Mom Mom Deb's birthday and the baby LOVED it.

On July 3, my youngest daughter and her fiance welcomed Julianna Marie into the world.  She was a whopping 8.2oz and Amanda is doing beautifully with being a new mom.  Of course it helps that Brandon is a great daddy.  They are getting married in September so as you can imagine, our hands are full.

My new thing is cooking. I have been doing A LOT of it.  I used to love it but since moving in to help my mom, I just can't get into it with her kitchenware.  So a few weeks ago Mr. Kricut went to storage and rooted around until he found my favorite kitchen items, my pampered chef and a lot of other kitchen goodies.  Now he's a happy man as I've been cooking every day (and saving a ton from take out!)  My crafty sistah Christie Anderson suggests I add a cooking tab to my Kricut blog LOL.

I've also made a few things in the craft room.  I've done the Photo Canvas which turned out beautifully, a few hand stamped colored cards and collecting toilet paper rolls for a project I'm thinking of doing.  I hope to be doing some crafty blog posts for you this week as I'm starting to get my craft mojo back.  My new love is bottle cap stuff LOL..

So if anyone is still out there and checking this blog that you thought was abandoned - I"m back!  I hope you missed me as much as I missed you guys!

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. 


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!
