Happy Monday All!!!

Well, I hope you are all having a great day :)

The cat lady has had a couple things in the last few days not work out so great.  On Thursday I went to take my son's birth certificate to his drivers ed school so he could start today (couldn't bear giving such an important document to my son even though he is super responsible, his book bag is scary!!!) ...  walk out to the car and next thing I know, I am under it.  Of course, my keys went one way and I went the other.  I must have looked cute crawling in the ice and snow.  I sprained my ankle....being an ever determined mom, bit my lip and took the paperwork down anyway :)

The other bit of bad news is that I tried to be on another DT, but to no avail.  Don't worry, I am still going to be doing my blog and my videos.....nothing keeps a good scrapper down!!  For all of you that support me, Thank you so much.  I truly love doing videos and as long as someone is watching I will be doing them.

Hope you all are well.  I will be posting another craft video soon.....probably tomorrow.

Thanks :)

Episode #10 - Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma

Hey everyone!  Hope you are having a great day. 

I am still having problem with my videos uploading, but I wanted to at least post pics for now and work on the video. 

I really hope I am able to figure out what the problem is as I love doing videos, but need to be able to post them. 

This project was created using Walk in My Garden Cricut Cartridge.  Emma's Challenge was to use this cartridge or another older cartridge if you don't have that one, and you must use a flower on your project.

Episode #9 -- Cricut Cartridge Haul

Hey guys!!  I can't believe I was able to wait to get all the carts in, but I did :)  So proud -- I generally have no patience!

Bad news about "Fishy Kisses" part 2 video -- it will not upload for some reason.  I am not sure why, I will keep working at it, but for now I can't upload. 

Wanted to also let you in on something I noticed.  On the Cricut Rewards site there is a list of Solution or Lite carts...Crocs Rule, Yeehaw, (Beep, Beep), Bump In the Night ...can't wait to see what they are!!  Wouldn't mind if they were on the rewards site, I have almost 5000 points and nothing to buy :)

But.....for now.....check out the carts!!!!!

Have a GREAT day!!!!

Episode #8 -- Haul Video

Hey Everyone, how are you today?  Hope all is well with you!!  Got some super deals at J's the other day and wanted to share with you all! 

I also met a super lady, her name is Louise, I hope I spelled that correctly!!  I met her how I usually meet people in craft stores.....when they look confused, I go over and ask if I can help.  I have to be honest, I have been offered jobs this way as well. 

I hope you enjoy the video.  Don't forget to tune in for Imagine That Friday to see what I have in store for you.  If you don't have the imagine, you can still play along -- I never want to leave anyone out!!

Have a great day :)

Episode #6 - Ryan's 15th Birthday Card

This is kind of a sad post in a way.  I made this card for my son and I took it in the bathroom to write in the card where I knew he wouldn't walk in on me.  I had to brush my teeth after, and I put the card on a shelf.  Little did I know or ever notice, the shelf, which is built in, is not flush with the wall.  So, needless to say, his card fell in the abyss.

Now, my SUPER son says..."Mom, its ok.  The fact you made me the card is all that matters."  I still feel so bad. 

Needless to say, I don't have pictures of it.  I do have the video.  I am so happy that I am doing this blog and doing videos of my projects.  That way he still got his birthday card!


Thank you for watching!  Please join me again for more crafts and videos.  Don't forget we have Imagine That Friday!!

Episode #5 -- My First Haul Video

Hey everyone -- hope all is fabulous :)   Sorry I haven't been around for a little bit, I had some dental work done and could not speak clearly to save my life!! 

I was able to shop though :)

I went to J's and you can see all my goodies.  I got a great deal on embossing powders, including Tim Holtz Distress Powders!!

I hope you like the video -- I will be having another haul video soon -- I got some great deals on some carts I would like to share with you.  I am waiting for all of them to get here to open them on camera with you and I am going nuts not knowing which ones have come in yet and not being able to redeem my points!! 


I am so excited today is my son's birthday!!  He is 15 today!!  I am so thankful for him in my life... I don't know where I would be without him.   He was the best surprise of my life!! 

Ry will be starting Driver's Ed at the end of the month -- expensive birthday gift, but he is worth every penny :) 

Love ya babe !!
