Craftroom Purchase

Hi Friends,

I am so excited to share with you my new addition to my craftroom.  I have been cleaning and rearranging things.  I can't show you just yet but in the next few days I will post my pictures.  If I have time I'll do a video.  I have had a ton of request from you all wanting a tour of my room.

Hope your weekend is going great!

Hi Friends,

I have been busy again.... cleaning and organizing my craftroom.  I am hoping to be able to work on some new projects and videos today.  I hate to work in clutter, or a messy room.  I have not been able to do much since I got back from vacation so my room is a bit messy.

I found this cute little quote and thought I'd share it with you all.  With my paper stash I have, I found this very fitting.  I just received a box full of almost every color Stampin' Up! carries this week!  I had to reorder the paper I was low on.  I could not take the chance of running out!!!!

Daisy Delight Card

Hi Friends,

I have had this card made now for a long time.  I waited to post it because the Daisy punch keeps going on backorder!!! Stampin' Up! just can't keep enough in stock.

Well, I just couldn't wait any longer to share it.  I just love it so much.  I suggest that you keep checking on the Stampin' Up! site to see when they are expecting to get more in stock.  If you want you can e-mail me and I can keep you posted on the updates.

Christmas in July

Hi Friends,

I know it's only July, but I have been working on Christmas projects already!  I hate to say it, but I think I'm ready for the holiday season!  You never hear me wish away a beautiful summer.

I just enjoyed making all my Christmas cards and projects last year that I'm super excited to do it all again!

I am hoping to have some projects completed in the next week to share with you all.  I have some great new projects, cards, 3D items, etc.

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Good Morning

Hi Friends,

I woke up early this morning and have been reading my bible and doing some much needed bible studying.  

I have a ton of stuff to get done in my craftroom  today.  We have to make sure we don't let our time with God take a back seat to other activities.  If we put him first it just makes our life more fulfilling, productive, and pleases him.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and take some time today to reflect on our savior and thank him for another wonderful day!

Saturday Scrapbooking

Hi Friends,

I had so much fun Saturday.  I went shopping at Joanns, Hobby Lobby, & Michaels!  I went to the grocery store too, but it wasn't near as fun!

I am going to start making some cute Christmas gifts, and items to sell at the Fall craft shows.  I will make sure I share my videos with you all on the projects.  

I started my crafting over 25 years ago, and it all started with scrapbooking. I am going to start my scrapbooking again.  I say it and then get busy with other things and keep putting it on the back burner.  I just feel like I have been bit by the scrapbooking bug again!

Stampin' Up! has such great items to help me out with their Memories & More product line.  I am hoping to start doing a scrapbook page layout video each week,  maybe on Sundays and I'll call them my, "Scrapbook Sundays".

Stay tuned for some fun projects and scrapbooking!

Friday Rain Was a Wash Out!

Hi Friends,

I had such a busy Saturday.  I don't know if you all follow me on Facebook but I shared a pretty scary incident yesterday.

We live in the country and there is only one road that comes in and goes out.  Well, we got a ton of rain yesterday.  It rained all day!  I was up super early and the weatherman said it would stop raining around 11:00am and then start back up in the afternoon around 3:00pm.  I think he was wrong, because it rains until around 7:00pm.

I decided I was going to go to the grocery store before the full force of the weekend shoppers and try to beat the crowds.  As I was leaving my neighbor was dragging a tree that had fallen in front of his house and was blocking the road.  As I sat in my truck waiting, another car was coming into the area.  As I approached the end of the road, it was flooded, I mean IT WAS FLOODED!!! I sat in my HUGE Toyota Tundra wondering if I should drive over our little road that had the drain under it.  The same road that washed out a few years earlier because of the rain.  I reasoned that if that little car could make, then I sure  could make it in my tank of a truck!  As I was pondering my decision, a huge tree branch came floating across the road in the rushing water.  I decided at that moment I didn't need groceries that bad, today!  I turned my truck around and went home.

Our road had washed away a few years back, and I was afraid if it continued to rain, the road might wash away again, and if I crossed to go to town, I might not be able to get back across to get home.

Once I was safe inside my home, I called my husband at work to let him know he might want to come home asap, as the road might not be there when he got off work at 7:00pm.  It was about 2:00pm when I made this call.  I knew he would not leave, he is like that, dedicated!

Well, what do you do when it's pouring down rain, windy and just a plain ole gloomy day?  You lay down for a nice afternoon nap!  To my surprise when I woke up this is what I had discovered.

Thank goodness I changed my mind and did not go into town! My hat goes off to our great road crew who worked all night long to repair our road.  They worked until around 5:00am making sure we all could get out on Saturday!
