Christmas Card Class

Here are 4 more cards we made at a Christmas Card Class.  A friend of mine is a Stamp-n-Up Consultant and put this class together.  I got to meet a bunch of great ladies and had a great time.  Now I'm set up to go every month....... YEAH !!!  I'm finally meeting people here in Washington that love to do what I do.  What a Bonus !!!

At the class we did 5 of each card, 4 different designs.  She had several designs to choose from so you were sure to like all the ones you made since you got to pick.  Another bonus !!!!

Dinosaur Birthday

I got some new stamps made by Wild Rose Studios from ICopic (Love this site by the way).  This little dinosaurs name is Fergus and he is Adorable!!  I was playing with it to see what I could come up with and here it is.......  I think it turned out pretty cute.  It works more for a boy than girl, but it could be changed to fit for a boy too.

New Cards

My mom, daughter and I went to California for a annual card class this past month.  I get to see my sister who lives there and a bunch of my friends at the class.  It was A LOT of fun !!

In the card kits, there are 8 different designs and 3 cards of each one.  We've been going to this for the last several years, but unfortunately...... I think this was the last year.  I know, BUMMER!!  My friend who has done the classes may not be doing them anymore.  Hopefully she will change her mind or maybe I can persuade her to change her mind.

Here are the cards we made.  I think they are really cute.

All of these cards were made using Close To My Heart stamps and the Cricut cartridge especially made for Close To My Heart.   The Cricut cartridge and stamps work together.  A must for any card maker!!!

Sugared Twine

I was looking at my PaperCrafts Magazine the other day and came across this awesome idea...... Putting your twine in sugar dispensers.  I love this!!!!  It keeps the twine from getting tangled and it's super easy to get just the exact amount you need.  As soon as I saw the article, I was out looking for these wonderful little jars.  I found them at Walmart for .97 cents each.  Soooo Cheap !!!!  I filled up my jars and put them on my shelf in my craft room.  It looks so pretty !!!!

I am inspired.......

I've recently heard a new song by Cher called "You've haven't seen the last of me" that just absolutely inspires me.  I heard it the 1st time in the Burlesque movie which I just recently watched for the very first time.  I know, I know I'm slow on the uptake and yes this movie has been out for awhile and I'm just watching it now.  Anyway......  It reminds me of my cancer battle. It's all about not being broken and always rising above the crisis' in spite of everything.  Hubby watched the movie with me and liked it very much and before I could say anything about the song, he pointed it out to me and said it reminded him of me and my cancer battle too.  Below are the lyrics to it and further down my blog is music that plays while you are my page.  It also has the song listed which you can click on to hear it for yourself.  I LOVE IT !!  I hope you like it too.  Enjoy !!!

Cher – You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Me
Feeling broken
Barely holding on
But there’s just something so strong
Somewhere inside me
And I am down but I’ll get up again
Don’t count me out just yet
I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point
 of breaking
But I can take it
I’ll be back
Back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me
You haven’t seen the last of me
They can say that
I won’t stay around
But I’m gonna stand my ground
You’re not gonna stop me
You don’t know me
You don’t know who I am
Don’t count me out so fast
I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking
But I can take it
I’ll be back
Back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me
There will be no fade out
This is not the end
I’m down now
But i’ll be standing tall again
Times are hard but
I was built tough
I’m gonna show you all what I’m made of
I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking
But I can take it
I’ll be back
Back on my feet
This is far from over
I am far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me
No no
I’m not going nowhere
I’m staying right here
Oh no
You won’t see me begging
I’m not taking my bow
Can’t stop me
It’s not the end
You haven’t seen the last of me
Oh no
You haven’t seen the last of me
You haven’t seen the last of me

Craft Room

Here are some pictures of my craft room.  I've got the big room now.  Yeah !!!  I have done a few more things since I took these, but not much.  

This is the wall to the right when you walk in.  It has all my buttons in the jars and paper in the white stackable.  

This is the wall all the way to the left when you walk into the room.  Don't you just love all this color?  I do.  It's great to be able to see all the ribbon I have.  More paper above in the racks.

The wall straight ahead when you walk in.  My craft desk, DVD's and pen holders.   Plus my big screen with cable and Blue-Ray Player.  AWESOME !!!  Hubby thinks I will never leave this room.  

This is the back wall.  It has CTMH paper and all my embellishments, separated by color in the plastic containers on the shelves.  Plus my cricut and flowers.  Love it !!!   

This is taken from standing in the door way.  You can see my work table, facing the TV of course.  Also the 3 tiered wire basket to the left of the TV that has a bunch of my punches in it.

Things to come......

Since I'm no longer working now, I've been really working on my craft room.  Getting it organized and gone through.  I've gotten rid of some things that I know I won't use.  I know, I know some of you are thinking, OMG she got rid of stuff?  Yes, I did.  It's nice to know what I have, therefore know what I want to work on.

The room I have to say is looking really nice.  It's colorful and visual.  Which for me, it has to be.  I'll post pictures once I'm done.  I've got a few more things I need to take care of.
