About Me

My photo
I live in Abilene, TX with my twin boys and husband. I love to make cards and scrapbook and want to learn to sew. I love God and want to serve him every second of my life. I love the fact that I can use cards as a ministry to encourage and brighten others days.

Work to be done.

Wow it is almost the weekend again. Where does the time go????? Well I have lots of other things that need to get done this weekend but I really need to spend some time working on some scrapbook things. I have to albums I am working on for other people and I really need to get busy on them. I mean can you get fired if you are doing them for free????? That would be really embarrassing. Plus I still have some more boxes of Junk (yes I am admitting it is junk) to go through in my craft room. My mom will be here in 2 weeks and I need my room cleaned so that she and I can play:)

Sign for work


who says you can't use your craft room for work as well. I pay a big role in our marketing at the office and so I came up with this idea to set a Menu sign outside the office. Here is a picture of it. It is drawing some attention.....that is what it is all about right?

Have a great Tues. I am running behind:)

I love mondays! I love Mondays! I love Mondays! Ok if I keep saying this maybe I will believe it:) Well here we are back to Monday again...... I didn't get much done in the craft room this weekend. I did get a few boxes emptied out and put away. I hope to get some time this week to get back to it. I still have some scrapbook pages to do for my neice. Maybe this is a good week to try to get the rest of my craft boxes cleaned out and this this weekend I can start working on the scrapbook. Have a great week!

Craft room tour

Getting caught up on Callenges

Ok so today I have 3 challenges to get caught up on from the pink stamper blog this week. First I need to create something with school. I think I will try to make a card for Paul's parents with a school theme since they are both retired teachers. Then I will make a card with my favorite stamp set since the next challenge is somthing you love. I am not sure yet what I am going to do with something new. I am turn between water fall card and neverending card. Who knows maybe I will do both! Have a great day.

Well I just read my post from last Monday. Needless to say things did not go at all as planned. So this weekend I am hoping to get my house put somewhat back together again. I also am hoping to spend Sat morning in my scrap booking room. I need to finish moving in to it and get everything set up so that it is very functional. My mom is coming in September and I think it would be fun to spend a day making things with her. I would also like to get caught up on the challenges from the pink stamper if I have the time. I still have to do the School challenge and favorite things challenge and then whatever the challenge is for today:_

Have a great Weekend everybody!

The Pink Stamper challenge!!!!


This is my take on The Pink Stamper's challenge today. We are suppose to use a product that we had to have when we started scrap booking and card making. When I started I had to have the embossing boards and the stencil tools to make cards. I used the embossing board party and the I used celebration to make the Stars around birthday. I now remember after lots of hard work why I really need to get a cuddle bug to do this for me! This was hard work what was I thinking???

Hope you enjoy:)

Weekend stampin

Well didn't get as much done this weekend as I had hoped but I got a few new cards done. Got to try the new Big Shot from Stampin up. Not sure that I liked it. I really like my Cricut and really want to get the Cuttlebug just to do the embossing. Anyone have any opinions on this?? Hopefully I will get the cards posted this week sometime. This is going to be as very busy week. Will be working on house every night to hopefully finally get everything in its place. Also hope to get my craft room put away and the rest of my stamps unmounted. DOES the WORK ever end??????
