About Me

My photo
I'm a mommy first and foremost to two wonderful kids. They keep me pretty busy with sports, theatre and school activities. Not to mention juggled with my own school duties. When I go off-track I try to accomplish as much crafting as I can. I love to quilt, scrap and make jewelry. My passion is to create gifts that are useful and to help the environment.

Thanksgiving Week

Wow, I didn't realize I haven't been on my blog in a week. I finished up my Christmas cards and tags for the swap and sent those off last week. My daughter and I just finished performing in the play Big River so now I can go back to crafting. My craft this week is to make Gobble Bags for Thanksgiving leftovers and make a few samples for my PTO make and take. I hope everyone has a great week. Happy Thanksgiving

Sunday-Christmas Tags

Here are the Christmas tags I've been working on this weekend. Thank you Charmaine for helping think of what to add to the tags.

I have been trying to organize my craft space in our playroom and I'm happy to say it is going well. I have come across a few things I don't even know how to use or that I no longer use and the items need a new home, so I am asking for your help out there. First, I have a pack of Provo Craft & Ellison Handmade Textured Paper. It says on the packaging perfect for die cutting, matting, framing and punches. Does anyone have a sample of how they used this stuff. All I know is it is too thick and bumpy to go through my cricut machine!!
Second, I have a Silent Setter...how do you use it? Lastly, before I bought my Cricut I had the Xyron Personal cutting machine. Does anyone still use the Xyron? Doesn anyone know of someone who would like to purchase one?
Well, off to finish up some Christmas tags!

Cancelling PTO Make and Take Event

To anyone who was interested in attending the PTO Make and Take Event this Saturday, please note that it is being cancelled. I am so sad! I have been focused on prepping all the materials for this make and take holiday card event ALL DAY. I guess I have to clean up my scraps now :(
Do not worry though we will be rescheduling the Make and Take event for the first Saturday in December. Please join us for this fun holiday activity.


Inspired by ScrapGuy's Autumn cards, I attempted to create two of my own.

I had a nice day off yesterday and I accomplished alot of different tasks. I managed to complete three simple cards using buttons, brads and ribbons. However, I can not figure out how to post a picture within this blog. Right now the pictures are along the sides.

I just finished the Thankful Hop and they weren't kidding when they said grab a cup of coffee and start hopping. I saw alot of great ideas on the blogs that I visited this morning. I'm going to need another cup of coffee to create some of those projects because I liked so many!! I'm going to try to complete a project or two to post later today. Happy Sunday!

Craft Challenges

Okay, so this is the first day that I am off track and I have to create a blog so that I can join in on all these crafty challenges. I can not believe how much stuff is on the www that I've never seen. The concept of blogging is totally new to me but from what I have seen you ladies have some awesome stuff on your blogs. These blogs bring a whole new world of crafting to me. Well, I'm going to give it a shot thanks to one of my colleagues Ana Maria and see how this goes this month.
