This space needs help!!!!!

This is where I create or should I say try to create. I miss my craft room terrible. Our house in GA has a wonderful 7x10 room that my sweet hubby built especially for me. It had lots of light & space for everything. Since the move I now have a 6x6 foot corner of a room. I hate the color of the walls & flooring and I am despising the desk & shelves. I help design and make these shelves and I really thought they would work, but alas they don't. We have designed a new set of shelves that we will build out the current shelves. Now if my dh would just have the time to help me build them.

The room is our bonus room that we use for a family room/computer room/craft room. Nothing at all about this room is working for me. There are toys & video games everywhere. There is crap sitting on every shelf in the room. This has definitely got to be the next room we paint & decorate! Hopefully now that dh is back to working days we can do something in here. Now to decide on a color.

2nd Card Group kit

Ok here is what I came up with for my 2nd card group kit.

This time we were given 3 sheets of Daisy D's to work with. Kit also had 2 sheets of Bazzill cardstock, 3 pieces of ribbon, 1 large Prima flower, 2 ribbon buckles, 7 crystal like things & 1 Junkitz Washerz. I absolutely could not figure out how to work the washer in to anything, but think I did alright with the rest of the stuff. I have incorporated several stamps in these due to the fact that I own several hundred stamps & have to start using them before dh says no more. The stamps I used were from Stampin' Up, Anita's, Rubber Stampede, & Inkadinkado.



I hope these are a sign that my creativity is returning. I had help with layout ideas from several different sketches & SCS galleries. Thanks!

It Official!

Today I am the mother of a teenage son. Where did the last 13 years go? It is kind of bittersweet he is trying to become more independent which is what we want, but I'm not ready to let go of my little boy.

Jared and I share a birthday and that gives us a special bond. He has always been a momma's boy & proud of it.

First Card Group

Pattern Paper: Rusty Pickles
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamped Images: House Mouse, Stampin Up,
Hero Arts & Hampton Arts
Ink: StazOn & Stampin Up

Stamped Images are colored in with Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol odorless mineral spirits.


Here are the cards I came up with for my first card group. I recently started going to a card group at Timeless Reflections a local lss. I am pleased with 2 of the cards considering I haven't done much creating recently and the others I'm just not sure I like very much. I didn't like the Rusty Pickles paper very much. It was definitely outside the box for me style wise. I decided to try a waterfall card & a pocket card for the first time, so that was interesting. Now I have to get started working on the next kit. Looking more forward to it, because I just love the papers that are in it.
