Hello Everyone,

Today is my birthday and I've been out all day and i'm truly tired.. I had a wonderful birthday, could not have asked for a better one...I've been celebrating since Sunday. I have 3 more days of celebrating to do then I will have to relax and mentally prepare myself for work. I don't go back until Aug 4th but I am truly gonna need those 4 days to prepare... Anywho that's enough rambling, I have some handmade cards made by my family (at my request) to share with you all. Please keep in mind that none of them are card makers or crafters. So beware...LOL...

This card is from my Baby (Significant other) isn't it just too cute

This one is from my son; adorable right....

... And this last one is fron my stepdaughter.. (that is me!) LOL

Okay, Hope you enjoyed seeing my cards as much as I did... They were so hard at work, I should have recorded them creating, it was toooooooo funny watching them put these BEAUTIFUL masterpieces together.

Well, that is my post for today, I am gonna finish up my night with the Family, I will post again tomorrow.

Goodnight All,

Stay Inspired

I was in heaven with that massage I needed that for a long time....and today Tuesday, I am showing some Tags that I completed for Scrapin 2010 1st Tag Swap...

Thanks for watching and as always

Okay, so my room is complete. And I have two projects. I will not be posting
anything tomorrow because I will be working a double shift. So I will be counting these two cards as my two post but I will be posting something on Saturday. What it will be I have no idea. Without going on and on here are my two cards. I really like the way that they turned out.

Card #1

This is Ryan a gretting farm stamp. I am practicing my copic coloring.
I used recollections white card stock for my base
I'm not sure what name the blue, yellow and red card stocks are I got them from my scraps.
The white cut out is a spellbinders die

Card #2

Ryan again
Card base is recollections
Mat was from my scraps (single sheet of DCWV I think)
Ribbon from Papertrey Ink
Blue Pieces were also from scraps (i'm trying to also use up my scraps)
Brown mat with Ryan attached is recollections cut out with another spellbinders die.

Thanks for stopping by.

Craft room completed (for now)

Hello all, I am finished the major parts of my craftroom. Everything has a home, I didn't realize that I had accumulated so much stuff over the years. Now, I just have to embellish it to my liking. I still have some things that need to be painted. (I will get to it soon) I am on vacation next week so I will definitely be doing more things in my room. I will also post a video of the completed completed (yes I meant completed completed) room, so until then I will just be showing pictures of my progress. At least now I can come in here and start letting my creative juices flow. I work better when my room is in order. Now, I can post a project a day and join in on some of these awesome challenges that are going on and complete some of my own personal challenges such as; learning my gypsy, using my cricut cartridges and practicing my copic coloring.

Here are a few pics of my room now.

Here is my island, I still have to paint the top and get a piece of plexi glass to cover it and purchase 6 more jetmax cubes.

Here is my cutting station I finally took my gypsy and expression 2 out of the box.

This is my main work station. I still have to put a piece of plexi glass on this desk top too.

As always stay inspired!

Still at it....

Hello All, Well, I didn't get a chance to post anything yesterday because I was busy doing domestic things if you will... I had to go grocery shopping(not to mention getting caught in the storm a really bad storm) my hair got wet, Yeah I just went to the salon Wednesday so yes I was truly upset about that.
On a better note I am still making progress on my room. I began to make a house warming card for a co-worker. It's not completed but I will post a picture of it. I didn't do much yesterday because I had to work today and 5:45am - 6:00am comes really fast.
Today, I stopped past Michaels to use another A.C. Moore 50% off coupon I did really well there I only purchased a refill for my label maker. I received a package from Magnolis-licious, I got my first Magnolia stamps today can't wait to play with them. Well, I have to get finished my House Warming card because the house warming is tomorrow.

Here are my very first Magnolia Stamps

Little shopping and More

Okay, so today I started my day off in the hair salon. After that I did a little shopping. I went to Old Navy where they were having a 75% off sale. I spent $44.61. I saved $124.97. I was really excited about my purchases. After that I went to Joann and purchased some spellbinders that were on clearance for $5.97. Then my last stop was Michaels where I brought 2 more jetmax cubes (now I need 6 more to complete my island)and a Martha Stewart Pickett Fence Punch (i've always wanted that punch) using a 50% off coupon. My Shopping Day was very productive and budget friendly. After my day of shopping I went back to getting my craft supplies and equipment out of my dining room and stored into my craft room. I still have bags in my craft room to put away too. I will be finished by the weekend, I hope. Well, here is a few pics of my progress.

Here is what the dining room table looks like now....

Here are my purchases for today

Here is a pic of what my unfinished island.(my son in the background putting the finishing touches on my door.

Here is my Old Navy Receipt.

Everyone enjoy your evening

I have CHALLENGED MYSELF to blog everyday from now until the end of the month I will either show pictures of projects that I am working on, a project that I have completed or just something to say HI. I wanna really get into blogging, so this is my way, Hope it works.

The Pics that I will show you are very Chaotic, I am in the process of re-doing my scraproom AGAIN(major redo)So please don't be alarm... Once I have everything back in order I will try and post a project a day. I Hope you follow along with me.
This is some of the stuff from my room that needs to find itself back into my room. LOL

Here are some alcohol inks and other accessories on my craftroom floor that I have to put away. The hard part is to find where, I have enough storage the dilemma is where.

8 1/2 by 11 paper that I have to put away there's more in the dining room...

My new cutting station... I used the desk that I use to work on...

My shelf that needs to be reorganized.

My new desk top and jetmax cubes (I brought 12 cubes when they were 50% off and with 50% off coupons) I love coupons...... A.C. Moore has another 50% off coupon out,I have to get get 6 more cubes to complete my island.

I can't until my room is completed.. Well actually it is completed (except for the island) I just have to put everything back in it. I'm really satified with how it's turning out.

Thanks for stopping by.
