Good Monday mornin!

Ok lets try this again! Had my post already and it disappeared! Ugh! I had a great time fishing with hubby this last weekend, before the big rain storm rolled in! Also got some paper time in! I have a Stampin up class scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, so I spent some time coming up with the pages for the mini scrapbook pages we'll be doing. After working on them I decided I couldn't decide:) They new papers that Stampin up offers in the new Summer Mini are so nice I decided to offer 2 options for my Gals!

These first 4 are from the Nautical Series paper, perfect for summer travel and boating pages.

These pages are using the Beyond the garden papers. The pages aren't finished, there just to give you a idea as to what we'll be doing. If your interested in class info, check out my Demo website at I do need RSVP's ASAP! Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Oh what a mess we make!

Last weekend I thought I would have lots of time to play, well until I walked in my craft room and saw the mess that I had made being crafty, and not having time to clean up:( So I decide it was time once again to get organized! So thought I'd share my room with you!

Wow, who could work in this mess! LOL I can't believe how cluttered and messy I can get! I decided that this wasn't working so spent all day Sat. and part of Sunday getting cleaned and organized! So this is how things look now, (well until I start getting crafty again:)

So much cleaner now and user friendly! I love a clean room! But the question is, how long will it last? Well I hope you have a great day and happy stampin!!

Happy Mothers Day!

Here a couple cards I made for the special Moms in my life!
 This is just a very simple card i made for my Mother-in-law. I used the Elegant lines embossing folder for the front of the card, along with some pearls.  The stamp used is from the Fabulous Florets set in the new Summer mini.
Oh this is a really bad picture:(
The old water pump on this card is from the Countryside set out of the big catty. And because the picture sucks! Sorry! it's hard to see but I used watercolor wonder crayons to color it in. The colors are Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla.
Thanks for stopping by, and for all the Moms out there have a great day!!

Crafty time agian!

I'm really trying to get back into being crafty! After the last month and some medical issues that sad to say put me in a little bit of a slump:( I think I have found a little bit of motivation again! Last weekend I was looking thru some of the stuff I've been "collecting" the last couple months:) and ran across the Petal cone die that I just had to have! When I cut one out and started putting it together it reminded me of the May day baskets we made in grade school, so I had to make one, so here it is!
 Dang it! Some day I will figure out how to get this to show up with out them turning sideways!
And here is a close up of some of the flowers. Thanks for stopping by, and hanging in there while I come and go:) Stay tuned I promise more to come in the next few days! Happy Stampin'
