I'm a disabled stay at home mom. I married the most wonderful man and Children's Pastor in the world on Sept. 26, 1987 and we have 4 great kids. My oldest son is married to my beautiful new daughter-in-law. My oldest daughter is in college and graduating high school this year. We adopted our last two and they know they grew in my heart and not in my tummy. They both have down syndrome and I can't imagine my life without them. My husband is very supportive of everything I want to do, except when he knows it's gonna cost him a lot of money. Only kidding, even during those times he's right by my side. Most of my time is spent at home because of my brain tumor, so I occupy my time by crafting and watching all those talented bloggers out there. Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope you like the crafts that you see.
Hey all, as many of you know I have not been feeling very well and have not made a card in over 2 weeks. Which is not like me at all. I haven't even been able to come up with a simple design. I think not feeling well and just being down physically has really taken it's tole on me. So today when I came home from my cardiologist, I decided I was going to make a card if I had to sit here all night long. I need to make some birthday cards, but didn't feel up to that. So I decided to do a card for Madison at http://www.funkycards.blogspot.com/ , for her I Feel the Love Program. The recipients of the cards this month are members of the Navy on the ship with Madison's brother. I know my card isn't the most patriotic but I thought maybe one of the women on board might enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
Hey Everyone, it's me again. I wanted to show you the mini that I'm working on. I still have to make the journaling tags to go inside each pocket, but I wanted to share with you what I have done so far. The papers are all from Hobby Lobby, the Paper Studio - Mirabelle Collection along with the ribbon and brads. It is such pretty paper. I used an 8 X 10 acrylic frame and a small binder clip that was attached to a index card holder, both from Wal-Mart. I used .25 inch scor-tape to hold the pages from the mat stack together, only on 3 sides. I plan on making tags to slip inside that can be used as a journaling mat for pictures on both sides of the page.
I feel like it is needing something on the right side, but I just don't know what. Let me know what you think and if you think of something that might be the perfect embellishment, let me know.
I spent most of the day in my wheelchair not feeling like doing much. But a couple hours ago I got a burst of energy and made a few pearl bling rings for some friends and I wanted to share them with you all. I'm hoping to do a tutorial on how I made them, but I have to wait until I get my tripod back up. My littlest daughter was my hand model so don't look to closely, she had just finished playing outside in the dirt. LOL
Let me know what you think and which one is your favorite.
Hey Guys, this is my stamp-in up haul. They are doing sale-bration right now and it goes until March 31, 2012. With every $50.00 you spend, you get a free gift. Plus if you get orders totally $150.00 you get hostess gifts. You can't beat that. I haven't done this much shopping in my entire life. It has been a blast.
Hey Everyone, sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I was getting ready for my first craft show and I was very very sick, all at the same time. I wanted to show you the clip board I decoupaged for the show. I bought a clear clip board at wal-mart, but my friend was able to make them for us with the tools that he has. So this was our first attempt, let me know what you think.
I used the paper from Colorbok, the rosewood collection. I absolutely love that paper and am going to have to get myself another pack or two or more. LOL It has a lot of old fashioned designs in that pack.
Hey All. This is a very easy project that I made for all the kids in my children's classes. It's very simple, but I think it's cute with just the stamps from K. Andrew Designs. Click here and it will take you directly to the Getting Cricky Blog and the K. Andrew Designs amazing stamps. I used the "I heart you" and the "It's Valentines" sets for my project.
Take a peek. . .
I used Regal Rose card stock from Stamp-in Up. White card stock from Papertrey Ink. The stamps are the "I heart You set and the It's Valentines set" from K. Andrew Designs. There is a link up top that will take you directly to her website so that you can see all her stamps. I made faux stitching lines with my silver gel pen and used Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup Ink for the sentiment.
