So I promised to post more, and well as you can see that hasn't happened.  The last weeks have been pretty stressful between work and my not work life.

First off, my dad had a heart attack.  He's doing well and is even back at work on light duty.  I was scared out of my mind.  Totally didn't feel like doing anything crafty.

I then was at a paranormal conference with my boyfriend.  We had a blast.  Got to meet cast members from Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth, and Haunted Collector.   Sad that Josh Gates had to cancel due to a bad run in with Poison Ivy though.

At work, our director retired 3 months early and so we are currently trying our best to run the place without one until one is hired.  I've been super busy and things with a co-worker were ify.  But the last part has been worked out, so that's okay.

And finally my boyfriend is having surgery this Friday and so that's been weighing on my mind.  It's not a serious procedure, but anytime someone goes under, it's a little nerve racking. 

With all that's going on right, my creative juices just aren't flowing like I hope.  I did make a super cute Halloween candy dish that I need to post and I am waiting for my 150 piece set of Prismacolor pencils to arrive.  I'm hoping the mojo comes back and whacks me along side the head.

Stay Crafty,

Active blog...not here :p

I was looking at trying to get on some design teams, but they all say must have active blog.  Right now, I don't really feel I have a need for an active blog.  I post when  I have something to post and that's how I roll.

But I do want to be a little better in posting.  I used to do this all the time, but I don't know, I just fell off the bandwagon so to speak.  I am going to try and post something every other day whether it be something crafty or just an update on how things are going.

So here's my first post.  I recently got a Cutterpillar Pro paper trimmer.  Still getting used to it as it is a lot different from my Making Memories cutter I had been using.

Also, I purchased 5 or 6 packs of the Specturm Noir markers from Crafters Companion.  I got Turquoises, purples, reds, blues, greens, pinks, and browns.  So, I guess that means I got 7 packs.  I hope to get them all as they are a great fill in for my Prismacolor Markers.

Just so you know, I'm playing around with inLinkz.  So I am going to try and post the product pics at the end of this post.

I plan on posting some things shortly.  I have made several cards in the last couple of days and am working on a project that I am debating on using it for a design team entry.  I will post that when I decide what I'm doing. :P

Guess that's it for now.  I will be out of town most of this coming weekend, so I don't know how much I'll get posted then.  I'm going to a paranormal convention and get to meet people from Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth.  I am totally pumped!!

Here is my take on the challenge that the focus group over at cropchocolate.  The them was Family Tree.

These two pictures are my grandma and grandpa at their 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries.  I wanted to put the wedding picture in there as well, but I couldn't find my copy, so there you go.

All product is from the Summer's End line by FancyPant which I got from CC
Except the following:
Layered Trim by BasicGrey (from CC)
Yellow Flower is from Webster's Pages
Numbers are Tim Holtz grungeboard (colored with my TH Distress Markers) 

Out of the box

I am working on a mini album!  I was a little nervous starting out as I have never made one before.  This is a paper bag album and is Halloween themed.  The paper I am using is mostly October 31st by FancyPants and Chillingsworth Manor from Echo Park both of which I got at cropchocolate,com.  I will be posting pics of it when completed.  Hopefully today if I get myself in gear.

Also, I have been making some cards, so I have to get pictures of those up here as well.

That's it for now, but be on the look out for my mini and the cards.

Stay Crafty~

So here is a card I made for challenge number 12 over at  For this challenge we has to have handmade flowers on the project.  These flowers came off the Flower Shoppe cartridge.  I just got this cartridge as couple of weeks ago for my birthday and this is the the first project I made with it.

This card was from the focus group challenge also at  The challenge was to use one of the Design Team's project for inspiration.  I made this easel card, inspired by this post:  Didn't turn out the greatest, but for a first time doing this type of card I can't complain all that much!

Oh and I have an exciting announcement......


That's right, according to UPS tracking it should be here on Thursday so I can play with it on National Scrapbooking Day!  So excited!

Better get my last load of laundry out of the dryer and then get ready for another week.
