Lots Going On.....

Hi Friends,

How come there aren't more hours in each day? Been so busy. Re-organized my craft room and closet. I have a nice walk-in closet where I had my sewing machine set up. I decided to move it into my guest room and set up my table instead as a place where I can make my videos. It's all finished! Yay!

Got up the energy to paint my $3 yard sale chair to match the rest of my craft room. Here's a pic. In an earlier post you could see that it was brown. I made a black fabric with tiny red cherries (Mary Englebreit fabric) seat cushion. Love it!
I also did another video of a card. Wasn't thrilled with the card so haven't posted it. I added a few black stitch marks and some pink to the cat to make it a bit better. What do you think? Should I post the video? It doesn't require much knowledge other than I did cut it out with my Cricut.

Also finally got my 99 cent shelf painted. Plain ol' white to stand out on sage green walls. Figured since I was painting my chair, it was time to finally get this done.

My niece was just accepted into nursing school and we are all so proud of her. It's going to be a lot of work but she is very motivated to pursue this new career for her. Her parents had a fun family barbeque and I wanted to make her a card. Here is the one I decided on. (Just love the pink crocs!) Of course, I used my Cricut. Just love that machine! The cartridge was Everyday Paper Dolls. Used the nurse and some of the doctor accessories. So fun.

Also this month, my son celebrated his 32nd birthday! I found this picture of him on the beach when he was just a wee one and made his card from it. Scanned the picture and printed it in black and white. Stamped a Papertrey Ink message from Signature Greetings and then covered the photo with clear acrylic.
My sweet sister has been pestering me for months to do more on my blog. I have really good intentions but once I am home from a long day at work, I can't seem to find the energy. I absolutely LOVE making cards and doing crafts but only find time on weekends. I never wanted to be one of those people that doesn't keep up their blog. It drives me nuts not having more to post. So....I am going to make an effort to be more consistent. Hope you are all enjoying your summer. I remember the days when I was home with the kids and we spent most of our time camping and going to the beach. The good ol' days.......
Back to reality.
Thanks for looking!
