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.

Easter Treat Boxes

 Well my daughter who is in 2nd grade brought home a note at last minute saying they would be having an Easter Party Thursday which was only 2 days notice.  We agreed we would only send chips & dip then this morning on our way to school she decided that she needed treat bags for her party too. I had nothing at home so I decided to put my Silhouette Cameo to use finally. I made 22 small treat boxes for her class and 1 big treat box for the teacher.  And believe it or not it only took me 1 hour to cut them all out, add noses, ink them and fill them with goodies. When I took them to the class this evening the kids and teacher
loved them and my daughter was so proud;  she kept saying "My mom made these for me"!

I am so proud of my last minute chick treat boxes. I purchased the file from Silhouette Store and it was so easy to cut and put together. I am really loving my Cameo and can't wait to use it again.

Yard Sales

Well I am up early to try to hit a few yard sales in my area. I saw a few listed that are suppose to have scrapbook items so figured I would go check them out. I hope to find some goodies! If not that's fine since I will be checking out Joann's, Micheal's and Hobby Lobby too before I come home.

Been MIA

Sorry I have been MIA for so long but sometimes life happens like that. My family has kept me extremely busy since school started last August, then the holidays and a bad family situation happened so that meant not scrapbooking for me. Things have finally settled down some and I have been able to play with my toys some. During my time away I went from Cricut to my new love Silhouette Cameo and I am in love! There were several reasons why I made the switch but will not get into that. I decided since it had been so long since I done anything crafty that I should go through my area and box up anything I no longer wanted or needed. I have managed to get 3 boxes of rubber stamps boxed up (I have to stop buying just because it's cute and on the spur of the moment). I also have 2 boxes of misc. items boxed and ready to go. Cleaning out at first was difficult but it has gotten so easy to do now and it feels great. I was actually able to do a 6 layouts this past week and it felt great to be so productive. I will post pics of them later but warning you now that are not anything fancy just simple basic layouts. I am so far behind that I have decided to do a bunch of simple layouts which I like because it doesn't seem to take away from the pictures anyways.
