I should be ashamed

Wow I can't believe I have left my blog for this long. I should be ashamed of myself.
The crafting has been left behind a bit due to life's other adventures.

Ok the new goal. One post a week plus one crafty item complete. Actually I need to make more than one item a week since I have a big 3 day craft show in September but at least I will share one item.

To start the new goal I am up at a ridiculous hour on a Sunday morning so that I can get ready to go pick up my Ma and sister so we can be one of the first people at a craft store. Hey they are giving away $10.00 gift cards and everything in the store is 25% off including sale and clearance. Maybe I will come back later and post what I scored.

Well until next time -happy crafting

April Challenge?

Hello All,
Just when I thought things had calmed down I lost most of April. I know I was suppose to be hosting the April Challenge in our blog group. Can we say better late than never :-)

I decided the challenge was to use the quote

"Our lives are a mosaic of little things

~ Ingrid Trobisch~"

I put this together using my inchies stamps and my color pencils. Just make a mosaic that describes your life or surroundings, etc. I choose birds and butterflies since spring is busting out all over and beside I didn't have small ducks, chickens and fish stamps. That is what I am surrounded by when I walk outside my house.

I hope all is well with everyone

Until Next time

Oh my!!!

This is how the men in my house move stuff from one room to another. Yes that is the handtruck still sitting in the middle of my paper racks. I think I have a big job ahead of me.

I did spend time at work though drawing up the design for the room.

The wall in the second picture is where all my storage will be. My husband doesn't know this yet but some of his cabinets he got at the auctions are going right up there along with my paper racks and some of the pegboard I am going to "borrow" from my dad's house. The space is about 28" deep and 9 feet wide. Then coming out from the wall between the 2 windows will be my 6 foot work table.

Well I am going to see if I can find some supplies HA HA to make a card for my blogger group challenge. Maybe the challenge will be how to re-arrange a craft room.

Until next time

What a mess!

When I get home tonight I am going to post some pictures on how men think they should move stuff from one room to another. This weekend we got my stepson moved to the smaller room. Unfortunatly, as I see now, I had to leave for a while and leave them to do the moving My soon to be craft room is a total and complete shambles. Rather than placing things on the side of the room that is not going to be the crafting area so that I can build and re-arrange things as I sort. Nope they just moved it all into the center of the room.

Now keep in mind that they just moved everything from the small room into the big room. I sorted through several boxes and only about 1/4 of one box was mine. All the rest belonged to my husband. mmmmm it seems a lot of stuff he has been "missing" has been sitting in boxes in "his" office but he never searched through any of them convinced that all the stuff in there was mine.

My mom has given me the goal to have it all set up and ready to go when she gets back from England mid-May. My goal is to have it good to go by the time we participate in the craft yardsale on April 18.

Wish me luck !!!

Until next time

Hi all,
Life has been hectic for the last month or so. I have failed miserably on my New Years resolution.
Before anyone wonders my husband is fine. He new heart is just ticking along and they are reducing his medicine each trip to UVA in Charlottesville.

Mostly it has been me. Between work and the stress of wondering if I will have a job each day and then a lazy 26 year old stepson who just want to live off of his dad and I . I just have been totally away from any me time.

This is hopefully changing soon. I am moving the step-son out of the big sunny guest room and moving him to our small office and taking the room back over for ME!! It is suppose to be rainy this weekend which sounds like - TIME TO MOVE FURNITURE weather:-)

It is amazing that when you do not have one dedicated space you seem to acquire a lot of STUFF. I am sorting as I am moving and will be participating in a yard sale at a local scrapping store next month. From the looks of things I could really be coming into the money LOL.

Last weekend my ma, sister and I had a girls 1/2 day. We got up early Sunday morning and drove up to Fredericksburg. My sister had never been to an AC Moore so it was a treat for her. Her birthday is this coming week so Ma and I surprised her with some extra spending money. It didn't last long. We then stopped at a new Joanne's they have up there. OH MY !!! We wanted to spend the whole day there. It was way more than the dinky ones we have here.

We have spent the week teasing my dad about it so on ma and dad's way home from Ohio this weekend I think he is making a detour. I think I may have mentioned my dad is a ribbon-a-holic. Well he is in therapy for that but now has developed another addiction. It is called "Clear Stamps". This is one addiction we will not get him into therapy for :-). He has really good taste.

Well take this as a sign I am back and I am going to be making up for lost time. I have missed some challenges for my blog group and I have to plan the one I am hosting in April.

Until next time

Where have I been

That is probably a question some of you have been wondering about. I am still in my little corner in Virginia.

My crafting Mojo has been absent for a few weeks. Last night I finally got started on the Bridesmaid dresses. Wedding is only 4 weeks away - No reason to rush - right? Skirts are a piece of cake but the top we may have to improvise. Both the girls are about 6 ft tall and good size girls and I told my Niece - we may have to get another pattern for the top. Otherwise it may be an x-rated wedding :-)

The bridal shower invites went over big with the bride. For my gift to her I am doing her thank you cards plus I am going to put togther a small album. I have my prototype done and will be putting them together next week while waiting for Alan's Biopsy. The Brides mother loved them so much that she wants me to do Grad invites for her son.

For her shower we asked all the attendees to bring a favorite recipe that we can put into a book for her. Big dissappointment as only one person brought a recipe.

I have stamp club tonight so hopefully that will give me the push in the right direction that I need.

Until next time
Happy Stamping
