Hello everyone! I know it has been a couple days now but I have been so busy. We are doing my youngest Daughter's birthday party today so I have been spending the last couple days getting ready for it. Now the house is clean, decorations are ready and I made the cake last night. So once the party is over I can get back to crating! 

I went to Joann's yesterday and bought me the Fiskars Fuse machine and I can't wait to open it up and give it a try tonight. Will post pics are maybe even a video of the process. I mainly got it because I was told in a facebook group that I could use it with the Sizzix Pro dies so we shall see. I am loving my manual machines more here lately. I am awaiting my big Sizzix order from their big sale during Thanksgiving holidays.

Hello again! I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! My family had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We went the day after to the Christmas Tree farm and picked u our tree and put it up that evening. We decorated it while watching Christmas movies, I love our Christmas traditions. Even though my oldest 2 girls are 14 and 15 they still enjoyed participating. We also got our upside lights and decorations put up so now I am ready to make some crafty Christmas projects.

I also done a little shopping during the Black Friday sales, how about you? I did most of my shopping online this year though and I loved it. I have a huge order from Blitsy, several from Amazon and 3 from Sizzix coming plus a few others.

I have been working on my Christmas cards for the last week and about have them ready to go in the mail. This is the first year I have actually made my cards like I planned. Here are a couple pictures of some of them I have done so far. Yes they are simple but hey I am using my hoarded stash and actually making Christmas cards to send out this year! LOL Now to actually get them mailed out!





I have some cupcakes and treat bags to make for my youngest daughter's birthday tomorrow for her class party. Wow I can't believe my baby is going to be 11 years old tomorrow, where has the time gone!

Hello I am back! If anyone is still following me, thank you! I have had a very busy and crazy last year.  I started working on updating my blog last week after debating whether I wanted to keep it going or not for the last month. I do facebook, youtube and Instagram so I was debating on closing my blog but to be honest I want to give it one more try.

Okay life update: My family has moved twice in the last 2.5 years which was very crazy but we have finally settled down where we want to be. Our 14 & 15 yr old girls started high school this year and we wanted to make sure they were attending a school that offers them a great education and also a great high school experience. We finally moved and got them into that school district and it has been our best decision yet. Even my 11 yr old is loving her new school and has made so many friends. We are now closer to my husbands work so we get to spend more time with him which is great. My girls are now older and spend a lot of time on their extra activities which means more time for my crafting. They don't depend on me for every little thing now which makes me a little sad but at the same time makes me a little happy.
With our recent move I lost my huge craft room and now only have a small space to craft in but I am making it work for now. My husband and I are debating on getting a portable building and turning it into my crafting studio. But it will be spring before that happens so for now my small space will do.
I will be back later today to show the projects I have been working on.

I know, I know...it has been over a year since I posted anything and even then I didn't post that often. I have decided that I am going to start posting daily Monday-Friday and if possible on weekends as well. I have been crafting and scrapbooking much more here lately and want to be able to share it with everyone. I have even started making youtube videos which aren't that good yet but I am learning as I go and hope to get better as I go. I have always watched everyone's videos and said I should be making videos but kept putting it off. So far I have 2 small videos posted but have 2 more to upload tonight. My youtube name is scrapnchic79 if any of you are interested.
I have had a busy year so far, we moved and are just now getting settled in, my 12 yr old DD was hospitalized for a short period, and then summer time is always busy with all 3 girls home but things are finally starting to settle down. I have been enjoying being able to get in my room and scrapbook and making things again. Right now I am working on some cute back to school gifts for the girls teachers and hope to finish up tomorrow, since they start school Thursday!
I will try to post pics of the teacher gifts tomorrow when I post again!

It has been awhile since I posted here but I am going to try to change that. I have spent the last 2 days cleaning up my blog. I have been deleting old links that no longer are active and planning on giving it a new facelift so to speak.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have a great Easter and be safe if traveling. We dyed Easter eggs last night and my girls had a blast even though they are 8, 11 and 13. Now we are going to bake Easter cookies and wait for more family to arrive so we can have our annual Easter Egg Hunt and then Easter dinner.
