A hopeless paper crafting addict, who wants to do it all. I love all crafting and am trying to master the world of digi scrapping, as well as making my own digi files. I love jewelry making with Silver and poly clay, My favorite tools are are my MTC program, and my cougar cutter.
Hello crafty ones, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving......I did not go any place, just made the basics here for my youngest Son and myself, just to blasted cold to go out, but yet I felt compelled for the first time ever to go to Wal-mart for there black friday Cricut sale, what was I thinking, got there about 11pm and there were just finishing getting all the stuff out, so I took my cartridges I wanted, and was working my way back to the front of the store thinking I had time to browse around, after all you can not check out till midnight. So I went browsing and at one point I looked down the aisles and literally seen hundreds and hundreds of people. They were not all there 20 minutes ago. WOW.... Where the heck did they all come from in such a short time. So anyway I figured I still had about 10 minuted
s to check out so I walked to the front to wait for the lanes to open and when I came around the corner holy hannah, hundreds more people!!! The line to check out went all the way back to the back of the store/ It's like they came out of the wood work, and every crack known to man. Well needless to say 1 hour and 7 minutes later i finally reached the front of the check out line. I can honestly say I will NOT be doing that again. Ever!! So I ended up buying 6 new cartridges, they even let me have the older cricut lites for 20.00 which was quite nice, there were so many people I think the lady just did not want to take time to check if they were on sale, or she was not a crafter like us. Cause other wise they should have known what was on sale and what was not. So I get to play with 6 new cartridges. The Inspired Hearts is beautiful and would be perfect for using to make card fronts and beautiful tags. So anyway, that was my black friday adventure. Gotta have it once I did, and all's good. Don't plan on doing it ever again, but at least I can say I braved the elements. And what some RUDE people. Holy man. I mean really, is it acceptable to be mannerless on that day or what?? Sure does bring out the evil in people.So anyway I listed my cartridges on the side bar of the blog and if any of my blogging sisters don't have certain cartridges and would like something cut I would be happy to cut any and everything you would like... Have a great rest of the week...

Good Monday morning crafty ones. Well first off for all of you Cricut junkies, did you see that there are new Cartridges released again, 1 of them is a font cartridge, the other 5 are Lite cartridges released solely to Wal-mart which will be available for sale on Black Friday. The Design studio already has the update available for download, and I have been playing with it ALOT and have not found any bugs in it. I love my CDS and could not live without it. SO if you need the download link here it is CDS UPDATE For you Gypsy owners it is going to be a bit more, well first you need to update to the cricut sync as the G sync is going to be obsolete. If any of you need help with your Gypsy and the updating just email me and I will try and help out or find someone who can help you out.
I LoVe lOvE my design studio, and can not imagine life without it. I have been working on some cards for all of you to upload if you like, and will keep you posted on the progress of that. I do love my Gypsy as well, and although I love its portability, the teeny screen is hell on my old eyes.
SO, I am off to create something am feeling a bit like Christmas today, not sure why, just sorta hits me every now and again...lol. Have a great day
Good morning ladies.... I seems I am always a Holiday or 2behind in my projects, as hard as I try to keep up with things I always get a bit behind. So Halloween projects are just getting finished...Here is a cute little book I made for my little Granddaughter. Although it is not quite done, I am getting there.
I love the colors of Halloween and all the cute little embellies that are out now. I also really enjoy making these paper bag albums, and other mini's.
Those of you know me well, know that I am home alone at least 16 hours a day. All day, everyday. And although I have a tom of crafting time, I still miss my kids and all the work that goes with them. So in place of the kids, and to help fill my lonely days, I have 3 fur babies, MsKitty a horse, whom as much as I would love to bring her in and much as she would love to be indoors, I just can't do it with her. So my time is spent with my other 2 furry friends, both yellow labs, both studs, and full brothers, the top photo is Ryder, he is 1 1/2 years old. He is like a child with ADHD, always silly, always into something. But oh so very sweet and loving.
This is Ryder taking a mid day snooze on the couch with his favorite blanket and pillow, can we say awwww....
This is Ryder with big brother Rookie, who has decided to join in on the napping situation.
And even cuter yet, the 2 of them cuddled up together still snoozing away. Even holding paws.
And this handsome fellow is big brother Rookie who is 3. He is such a mellow, and loving dog. His hearts as big as he is. He likes to sit for pictures, and show off his beautiful face.
SO there you have it, a tough country girl, who crafts all day with my 2 furry friends. They do help fill the void of 4 missing children. So now that that moment of mush is over with, time to get crafty again.
Hey Ladies, as I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself, I started searching for another project. As I hate just giving gift cards, or gift certificates, I found a very talented lady on cricut.com. She designed the perfect sized box/envie for gift cards, as well as some other awesome projects. All done on her cricut. Jamie is her name, and her blog is amazing. Visit her here These amazing little gems can be done up for any occasion. Decorate front, and or back. Add ribbons for a handle to hang on the Christmas tree, or no ribbons for the male person in your life. I love these I have cut and am in the process of decorating 50 of these. So go check out her blog, and she is kind enough to share these files. Don't forget to leave her some love. Wait till you see the little accordian purse, those are my next projects. Also don't forget this Saturday is the Craft Fair at the Manitowoc Expo, I will be set up in my normal spot. See you Saturday ladies.
It is a beautiful fall morning today, and at exactly 2 minutes after 9am I got a call from my bank asking if I have enjoyed my trip to the Czech republic area...I said well no, and they replied we already know that. We are calling you to let you know that your account has been a victim of theft. It appears they hacked into my paypal account, which as we all know is linked to our personal accounts. Well in 4 days they got away with every penny that was in those 3 accounts. The good news is I get it back, the bad news is it takes up to 4 weeks. So monday morning I will be filling out the paper work, and re-doing all my banking. The lady at the bank said for those of us with paypal accounts to change our passwords every week to 10 days. Also to set up a seperate savings that is linked to the paypal and only keep a small amount of money in it. But the password protection and switching of it will reduce the possibility by about 75%. And of course we all know not to open emails from those we don't know. Which I am very careful of that. There is also a green tea company out there who takes money every month, which my hubby got caught up in. It took months to get them and the money transfers stopped. So please ladies to avoid such a horrible thing happening to yourselves becarful and change your passwords and take precautions. It is a hard thing to deal with and swallow knowing there are those out there who have such capabilities and use them for bad.
