I am in love ...

with two new blogs I have happened upon. These women are crazy creative and very generous to share their ideas, and often downloads, with visitors! Check them out :)

Skip To My Lou
She is going to do one awesome craft a day throughout the entire month of June! Hurry, sign up now. Its free and June is right around the corner.

Today's Creative Blog
Wait until you see what she can do with duct tape! Awesome :)

My baby turned 5 on May 17th! I can't believe my chubby baby girl with the big gummy grin is now a super skinny and sassy chick about to start kindergarten! Boo Hoo! She wanted a mermaid birthday party which we morphed into a backyard water park theme. Which would have been super cute but the weather did not cooperate. We attempted to turn the garage into a tiki hut. It was the best we could do. The kids had a blast splashing around in their bathing suits even though it was only mid-60's! Brrrrrr! Here is her invite and thank you note.

Happy Crafting! Remember its COOL to craft and when its 90 degrees outside, do you really need another excuse?

I am sure you will find more. Now I am off to play with used laundry sheets ;)

February Creations

My wonderful SWAP group had taken off December, and maybe November (I can't even remember!!) but we regrouped and started back up in January. I am running late, however, but did get my design all worked out. I have a few more to make but here is the final product:

My sister-in-law just moved into a new house, so that was my inspiration. I love to multi-task! The new clear stamps from SU! are wonderful. I love that they take up so much less space, of course. But, they stamp very nicely, too. Just like the wood, really. This set, Good Neighbors, is from the Sell-A-Bration set and so is the paper, Welcome Neighbors DS. It's so cute. Not sure what I will use all that paper for but it is adorable. You can never have too much paper, right??

And, I was asked to make a friend's birthday card, because we were going out for margaritas last night (in a small snow storm, I might add). My sister suggested the "Cheers to You" stamp set which was perfect for this occasion. Here is what I came up with:

Thanks for looking,

Craft Show 2009

I was talked into doing a craft show, by a good friend, and I am so glad that I was! It was a couple weeks ago and Parkway Central High School. I shared a both with three other fabulously creative new friends. I wasn't too sure how I'd do but as it turns out I'd chalk it up to a success. I didn't have a ton of product but here is a glimpse of some of what I took with me. I didn't bring all that much home which was kinda nice!

Thanks for checking me out :)
