The Invites

My little man's 5th Birthday party is quickly approaching. A Super Hero Extravaganza it will be, but I will be writing more about that on my other blog...

I handmade the invites as I do each year and I have to say, these bad boys came out pretty damn good!!

What do you think??

I joined Etsy earlier this year... I still don't have many items listed. It is strange... if you ask me to come up with something for you, I can do it. But to sit there and come up with a new design, I draw a blank and this is why I haven't posted any new listings!

I have been having fun with Alchemy (special requests). I actually got a huge order that way. I am doing a wedding! Me, little ole me!! I have to make up the table Menu's, favor tags and cupcake picks all in a Hot Pink and Navy Blue Lego Theme. I have to say they items are coming out good but have to make so many.

As I am working on this Etsy order, I am also working on my son's 5th Birthday party (just finished making the invites and boy oh boy, I think they came out super cute! - I hope to post pictures of them soon!), and I still putting in bids on Alchemy.

Wish me luck and I will show you some finished products soon.

My New Toy!

I love getting new scrapping and crafting items. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! Recently I treated myself to the Sizzix BigShot.

I have to thank my friend Rosie who is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for her guidance on this purchase. I ordered from her Stampin' Up! site and was so happy. I got 2 free gifts, which I have to say were pretty impressive... I got to choose from a huge list of freebies and none were those cheap give-a-aways that other companies just want to get rid of. If you are not familiar with Stampin' Up!, I highly suggest visiting Rosie's blog and checking out her site... you will not be disappointed!

For my free gifts I choose a border punch and a Happy Birthday (4 piece) stamp set on wooden blocks. I love them both and plan to use them very soon!

I have my eye on a bunch of Sizzix dies and I can't wait to get my hands on them!! The machine is great and so easy to use. I love my Cricut but this is just so much easier. I don't have to worry about plugging it in, or if the paper is sticking to the pad, or if it will cut all the way through, etc.

Happy Scrapping to me and you!

I'm on Etsy!

So I finally did it... I joined Etsy. I posted a few items to start for sale. I have a lot of ideas but still need to make samples to post. Funny thing is all the ideas I have and all of the ones I have actually implemented in the past are already for sale on Etsy! There are a lot of talented people on there. Way more talented than me, but I thought I'd give it a chance... you never know :)

I am actually in the middle of a special custom request project/sale and I am hoping to have it done this week and will be able to ship it!

Click here to my site... check back for new items!

Happy New Year!

It is that time of year again when I go and make promises or set goals for myself that I never seem to keep. So what will make this year any different?

Here I am and it's been months since I have even touched this blog. Where does the time go and why don't I ever have time for anything anymore?

Speaking of no time, I haven't scrapped and it kills me. I want to, I have pictures set aside and tons of ideas but just no time. And putting aside the time, I don't want to always dedicate my dinning room table to it because I have a hard time cleaning up. I just always say "well I am going to do it again tomorrow, why clean up" and then months later the mess is still there.

These past few months I made a bunch of Christmas ribbon tags (unfortunately I didn't take pictures of them) to sell at craft fairs and a local holiday shop. They were really cute... embellished circles with a punch of curled ribbon on top. A nice touch to a gift bag or wrapped gift but.... they didn't sell. I guess they weren't as cute as everyone told me they were :(

While I was making these tags, I thought I should get myself on Etsy. A part of me wants to because I like to create but then the other part of me doesn't because I don't think I am all that good. Yes Negative Nelly is in the room!

Putting all of this aside, I have to sit and make my goal list for this year. Goals for scrapping, organizing and the rest of my hectic life!

I will be back sooner than later and get everything in order!

Until then.... Happy Scrapping!
