Hello Friend and more photos of my craftroom...

Happy Thursday Everyone...  I have been so good in getting into my craftroom this week to get creative.  I even got ready for work yesterday in record time so I could have 20 min in my craftroom before I went to work.  I picked out some papers that were left on my desk from my previous card and those little pearls, then grabbed a roll of twine and my distress ink and got busy... It felt good to create but knowing I left something on my table not finished drove me nuts at work, but when I got home and checked in on everyone I headed up to my room to finish what I started...  With that said here is my finished card...

products used:
Echo Park Beautiful Life 6x6 paper pad
Pebbles Inc Hip Hip Hooray (hello friend)
Digital Image (ticket)
Tim Holtz Ink (brushed corduroy)
Making Memories Pearls
Kraft Cardstock

Here is a close up...

 Here are a few more photos of my craftroom... Still getting it unpacked and things put in the right spots.  It seems like it will take me forever to get it done with working full time I only get to unpack on the weekend. So it's a slow process but it's getting there.

Thanks so much for looking. I love to read comments so if you have a chance please leave one.  I will be back soon with another project.  Till then... Happy Crafting.

Happily Ever After... Happy, Thrilled and Excited...

Happy Tuesday everyone...  I am Happy, Thrilled and Excited today... Yesterday I was in my craft room creating cards and for some reason I was creating Valentines and Wedding cards. Not sure why. lol... Later that afternoon I called my son to see how he's doing really it was to check up on him.  When you live in 2 different states you worry all the time.. Well he told me he asked his girlfriend to marry him and she said yes.  So maybe that's why I was creating those cards. You know the "Moms intuition". lol  So excited for him and this next chapter in his life and well for me I finally get another girl that can call me mom... lol

With that said here is a card I created...

A Happy Birthday Card and still unpacking my craft room...

So I spent 12 hours in my craft room yesterday.  Looking at what I did in those 12 hours I'm not sure if I was that productive.  I would of been better if I could make up my mind where I wanted things.  Things started in one place then moved to a different place and ended up in another place.  I think that deciding where things go is what takes up so much time.  In the middle of it all I ended up twisting or pulling something in my back after moving some boxes around.  So I have been really slow moving like turtle slow. lol  So naturally I decided to sit down to rest my back and get in some creative time.  Here is a card that I created...  I really love the colors.

  products used:
The Paper Studio Pattern Papers (pink, blue and floral cream)
K12 Studio Stamps (dress form and happy birthday)

I'm finally back with some fun Stamped Goodie Bags...

Wow I can't believe it's been almost 3 months since my last blog post... A lot has happened since then.  I won't get into all the details but in that time I have unpacked more of my craft room, had 2 surgeries, been working and resting a lot. Now that I feel somewhat normal again I have been in my craft room getting creative...

Today I opened up a box and it was full of my wood block stamps.  So naturally instead of putting them away as I was going through the box I sat down and got crafty with a few stamps and made some fun goodie bags for my co-workers...  I love passing out fun little things to my team at work...

Products used:
(Jet Black, Cherry Pink, Olive Green, Black Cherry , Teal Blue, Cactus Green and Pumpkin)
Stamping Up Chicken Wire stamp
All other stamps are studio G wood block from Michaels
K12 Studio Twine

Here are some more photos...

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back tomorrow with another project...
Till then.. Happy Crafting...
