    This weekend

    I actually decided that I was not going to do anything work related and basically veg’d out and did a couple just for fun projects ๐Ÿ™‚ Zarah was having a lil celebration over at the Nook and so I jumped on that (with some gentle prompting and polite arm twisting lol!) and had fun on Saturday craftin away! It was fun to have nothing saying I had to get this done and I got a couple pages done to boot ๐Ÿ™‚ You are now going to be inundated with project pics LOL! First I help Zarah with an example for one of her card challenges (on Friday)… Then there was…

    Work Wednesday – Craft Space

    This post is taking forever to write but today my big plan was to do my LO for Design Dollies and to start packing my crafty area for the big furniture move. But alas, I am a major klutz and gave my pointer finger on (thankfully) my left hand a good slice and got 5 stitches today. SO I’m basically a one handed girl for at least a couple days. That’s not stoppin me from day dreaming about my new crafty office area ๐Ÿ™‚ Not one bit! Since I don’t have progress pics to show as I planned yesterday (DH would kill me if he came home to stuff moved!),…

    A week of scrappy goodness

    Not that I made everything this week but it all “debuted” this week in its respective spots. First off I wanna show you all my LO done for the October Prompt on Gutter Girlz. This one was very liberating and therapeutic. If you head on over to the Gutter Girlz blog you can see that this month’s prompt can be taken in a TON of ways! Here is mine: For a little lighter fare, we’ve got all three challenges up for the week over at Design Dollies! My homies, Leah (Trixie and I LURV calling her) and Adina, have thrown down the gauntlet again and have brought forth the awesomeness!…

    UN-lucky

    I was catching up on my blogs on Friday before I left for the crop and reading Momma Lizzie’s blog she had a great LO from a new blog called Punk Rock Scrappers. ย The challenge was to say why you were UNlucky (kinda a reverse homage to St. Patty’s). It didn’t really take too much thought for me to come up with how I was unlucky. Though I don’t think I’ll be showing this to my extended family anytime soon. The journaling reads: “How come I never seem to fit in? Not with my own family (I’m not a boozer or a partier) or my In Law family (I seem…

    What a weekend!!!

    It was literally crazy! I am a slow scrapper so I think I got a TON done!!! 9 Lo’s!!! Woohoo! The last 3 I need to go back and put some finishing touches on but at midnight I was a little burned out LOL.ย  As cool as the whole crop was, this kinda stands out to me. I met the friend I went with to the crop about a year ago. Well come to find out where we were going to crop (which is 1 1/2 hours away from where we live) is right around the corner from a place that as a kid my family and I used to…
