I just wanted to make a quick post here to welcome any new followers and thank you all for following me. I still do not know much about blogging and since they recently changed the way our dash bored looks I have lots more to learn. I hope to be back to crafting here in the next few months once I have my apartment organized and some of my wedding stuff also figured out. I hope to at least try to post a few time a month until I can get to regular postings, even if its just an updated post on life, wedding, or even craft wise. Figure my birthday is coming 9 days before Christmas so maybe ill get lucky and be able to blog about some gifts that are craft or cricut carts. I'm also hoping to find a craft buddy to be able to share tips and ideas with as well as be able to send and receive stuff from each other. I also hope sometime after the holidays to attend a crop to one of my local scrapbook stores. Iv never been to one because Iv always been nervous to go alone. Well Short but sweet and again thanks to all the new followers.

My Cat figured She was gonna help!!! lol
Alright, I know I am slacking with this whole blog thing. But hey give me a break im learning. Today is now March 2, 2010. Long time since I last posted. But for real this time ill be keeping up and bloging atleast once a week. (Thats my goal, if i try for everyday i know it wont happen.) So alot has happen between the last post and now. I'll give the best news first.........IM ENGAGED!!! So ya totally unexspected and really exciting. So as of Jan. 17th im an engaged and plannig a wedding. Since the last post I have gotten a few more cartridges for my cricut. ( omg I just love this thing) So now i own the two that came with it, Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials. And here is a list of the others I have got since buying the cricut, Stretch Your Imagination, Heritage, Life is a Beach, Everyday Paper Dolls, Storybook, Home Decor, Home Accents, Doddlecharms, Ashlyns Alphabet, Sweethearts, and Sweet Treats. So I think I am doing pretty good far, there is still a few that I really want . I do however have some pics of some stuff that I have worked on recently, so I shall share those at the end this post. One is I have made my own Tim Holtz grunge paper flower, however i used cardstock for them and they came out pretty good. 2 out of the 5 were colored cardstock and the other 3 I used a white cardstock and colored it myself with distressing inks and glimmer mist. Another thing I am showing is a paper bag mini album I started. All thats left for finishing that is makin the tags and putting some embellishments on the inside pages. I also have a few cards I have made. One is a paper pieced project I did. Took a leaf punch and punch out alot of lil leafs and glued them to branches I cut out with my cricut. I then added 2 birds i also cut out with the cricut, cut my own tree trunk out and glue it all together. I love how it came out so much I am in the process of making another one. The last card im posting is just one I threw together with left over stuff I had sittin around the table from other projects I had done. Hope u enjoy. Any questions just let me know. Well see u in a week if not sooner.

Oh boy been a few since i did my last blog. Its now Nov.30 2009 at 12:38am. But I am super excited, i got my Birthday present a little early this year from Junior. Well more then just a little early, my birthday isn't until the 16Th of December so i have a few weeks still. But any how i finally got the cricut!!!!! So i am totally excited and geeked that i have one now. It came to two cartridges, Plantin Schoolbook, and Accent Essentials. I was able to get it because it was black Friday and Joann's was having a huge door buster and had it on sale for 250 which is a great deal considering they run 399. We was in there at 6:15am and got the last one and they opened at 6am so if that tells you how crazy that store was and how big the cricut was. Junior and I stayed up all night thanksgiving night just so we could make sure we could get there when they opened and we would have been there at 6am if only i had known the Joann's that is right across the street from is closing there store there. I'm so totally bummed about that too. I mean how convenient is it to have to craft store right across the street from you. But total bummer they are closing. So any ways we ended up having to go to another store. I was so happy when i realized that i was getting one, to be honest i thought they were all ready gonna be all gone and they were right after i got mine. Then Saturday they had another sale at Joann's for cartridges but most the one there were already sold out, but i did end up getting the Home Accents one. So we drove down to Micheal's who also had them on sale but for 10 dollars more and were gonna get me two more until the lady told Junior that she would give them to us for the Joann's price if he bought me another one. Ha i like that lady because well he got me the third one. So there i picked up Ashlyn's Alphabet, Sweethearts, and last the new one out Sweet Treats. So i have plenty to work with for now. So that the most recent update. The apartment is coming along well. I have the kitchen table stuff full form end to end with all my craft stuff. But Christmas is right around the corner so i have lots of x-mas cards to do. And well now the cricut to play with also. I'm hoping to start my 1st mini book here real soon, so stay in touch for that to come. Well its late and i have lots of laundry and crafting to do tomorrow, so off to bed for me. Talk to you guys soon.

I miss the house and every time we leave here and go to head home i forget sometimes that i have moved and think i am heading the wrong way to "home". Sad sometimes but i love the new place.

Went shopping this past weekend and junior has bought me some nice craft things to me busy until i get a new job. Cant wait to start on making my mini albums. I get some great ideas watching YouTube.

OK I just wanted to say that I wont be able to post anything for a little while. Me and the fiance are moving out and into our own place. Will be different from moving from a house to an apartment. I'm gonna miss this house and am an emotional wreck over it. This house is the house that my grandpa built and raised my mom and two aunts in, then my mom raised me and my brother here. I was really hoping to raise my kids here. Guess that dream stops right here and well, the beginning of a new one. I wish more then anything i could have saved it it from foreclose but time are tough. So as i pack and get everything loaded and trailed over to the apartment, i shall be crying my eyes out knowing that i will never come back to this house if something happens. My mom died in this house and well my Nana and papa raised me here also along with my mom. I hate this stuff but as i said what is the ending to a sweet dream u thought would last forever, in turn it is a new dream I'm starting with my fiance junior and his daughter Grace. So i will not be posting anything for a while, but when i get back i can post my Halloween cards and a few other things, i still haven't sent my papa b-day card and gift out yet. Ill get that out to you soon papa. i love you.Well you guys have a great Halloween. As soon as i have Internet again, which i dunno when that will be i will let you all know. Ill post some pics of the house and surrounding woods that is beautiful. Thank you for all Ur support guys. Oh I want to say hi to my Aunt Lynne, and thank her for getting me my start on crafts. 1st it was stamping and then scrapbook's and now I'm doing all that and clay and and drawing and making my own boxes and paper flowers and the possibilities are endless, so than you Aunt Lynne for taking me every weekend and making me go to the craft stores with you, as much as i may not have liked it then, i know spend hours in there and 80 dollars later of juniors money were outta there..he he. Well also i wont have a cell phone for a while which means no phone..so as soon as i get that i Will contact who needs to be. Wish me well all. Love you

OK guys here I am, still alive. I have been so sick its been hard to get anything done. I did manage to get a few cards done just before I got sick. I'm still currently sick and really tired and ache all over the place. But I have finally got some more things on here. The top two pictures where out of a kit I had. The bottom two are one that I made the same day. Nothing awesome but I'm getting here and practice makes perfect. On the paper I used I did use a glue pen and add some glitter to some of the hearts but its really hard to see. Actually its hard to get a pic off my camera that turns out really well. But one day ill have a better camera and there will be better photos for you guys. Well that's all I for now, I'm getting better slowly so hopefully ill be able to post a little more often. I am currently working on another card as we speak so ill have that up here soon.

OK guys and gals, here it is, my first official post with something i have made. first and for most i want to thank Robyn "THE PINK STAMPER" for the wonderful ideas on making cards. She is such an inspiration to me and i cant thank her enough. So thank Robyn. Well i had a lot of fun making this card. Took me a few hours to think of it and put it together. All my craft stuff is in shambles because i am moving so its hard to find things. I'm hoping in the future i can put out some videos but to admit i am really camera shy and totally nervous about doing one. I would love to have some comments form some of you to see what you think, I want honesty, trust me it wont hurt my feelings, promise. Well again here is the 1st card i have really made and took time on just for you guys. More to come soon!!!!
