Howdy!

I'm still here!

Wow - this blog has been seriously neglected.

I think I stopped blogging when my craftin' time became quite limited due to work. I decided if I spent more time actually making cards, instead of posting about making cards and spending time reading all the craft forums and blogs -- I'd have plenty of time to be creative.

Currently, I don't belong to any groups -- even though I really miss chatting with all the ladies originally from MMFY, then later The Shaker Box. RIP, Shaker Box. I haven't visited Splitcoast Stampers in months. I guess I'm just out of the loop. I can promise ya -- I've been making lots of cards! I don't need to look at any sites for inspiration -- I have SO many ideas it makes my head hurt.

The blog needs a make-over. I'll be posting about the adventures of a 28 year old girl, who left her full-time job to go back to College.

Penny & Windshield Wipers!

I want to share this funny video of Penny, the most wonderful dog in the world. We've had Penny for about 5 months. She doesn't have any of those annoying little dog qualities - like barking. She rarely barks -- until you turn on the windshield wipers, then she goes CRAZY!

(That's my mom in the car with Penny & my uncle recording it)



Look at her sweet little face. She likes Pink!


How about a pic of something crafty? I haven't been playing with all my toys so much lately because I've been spending lots of time in the pool. Here's a super cute stamp & sentiment from A Muse.




The countdown to NYC has begun: 40 DAYS!

Any recommendations for first time visitors to New York City?

Have a great weekend - Be Good - Don't Run with Scissors!

A Muse!





I've made a couple trips to Personal Scrapbook in Allen for A Muse stamps. She even special ordered a few stamps for my friend and I. She's getting a shipment of My Favorite Things stamps in next week - YAY! Here are a few of the cards that I've done with my new rubber.






I'm not one to take classes or go to crops - I prefer to work alone. However - I just saw that Scrapbook N Such is having a 4 hour Copic class next Saturday. Scrapbook N Such is in Longview, TX -- about 2 hours away from Dallas but it's the town that my grandmother lives in. My mom and I were already going out there next weekend to visit, so I thought I'd squeeze in a little class to make sure I'm getting the most out of all these markers I've been obsessed with purchasing.

Off to the pool - KP

My 1st Bellarific Friday Sketch



Hey Peeps - so I've been bitten by the StampingBella bug! I bought my first Bella a couple weeks ago @ The Crafty Scrapper (Shout Out!) which was shortly followed by an online order.

And the rest is history. Check it out!


This week's sketch:





And here's my take on it:




Be good!

Hey there! I finally got a chance to play with the Making Memories-Sabrina paper that I fell in love with. You can NEVER go wrong with Pink & Black!


I picked up a 1 1/4 square punch on clearance this weekend at Hobby Lobby for $3.99. Sure beats using my nesties for a quick and easy card like this one.


This paper BEGGED to be used along with SU's Top Note die!



Spent the entire weekend at my folks house. They've got some major renovation going on! The whole house is being done in beautiful 20 x 20 tile! Goodbye Carpet! Perhaps the cards I made were inspired by all the tile work being done.

I've got to include some pics of Miss Penny! She had such a blast hanging out with Chris and I.

Banner!



This is one of the things I accomplished this weekend with a puppy in my lap. I made 3 banners and 4 cards this weekend. March is a busy month with birthdays @ my store. My employees love getting handmade stuff and I've had several of them tell me that they save everything I make for them. Awwwwww! Also, Chris' birthday is this month AND the Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade (read: massive public consumption of alcohol on Greenville Avenue.) Thank goodness we've got this extra hour of daylight now!

New Family Member!

Here's our new puppy, Penny!

She loves PINK, just like her mama!
