Stormy Day

It is going to be getting pretty nasty here this afternoon and this evening... We have thunderstorms coming in.

Yesterday I worked on my samples for my decals and a few wall decals too. Today I am working on decals for my cricut and my computer ... I thought it would be fun to decorate my computer and my cricut expression. I will post some pictures later of my computer and expression... I am adding the pictures of the decals from yesterday in my Gallery, so check them out.

I am trying to be patient waiting for my E2 to come in...

Well time for me to finish up around the house and then it is off to Ambulance for the night, on until 4am tomorrow... hoping a for a slow night...

Been Sick

I have been in bed for the past couple of days, I got the stomach flu from my girls... It hit me harder than it did the girls. It really wiped me out and I am still feeling it today, but not as bad, I just couldn't take another day in bed though. I have so much to work on for this weekend.

What is everyone working on for Easter? I am trying to make some cards for my girls and a few things for their baskets. And getting ready to get the eggs together for the egg hunt on Sunday.

Life's a Party Cartridge...

I got my "Life's a Party" Cartridge in today.. I am so excited to try it out.
There is so many projects that I want to try with it. I love it. I will post pictures of my playing with this cartridge later...


Card for My Mom

I was thinking of my mom today and thought that she might like to get a card letting her know that I was thinking of her. She only lives about 10 minutes from me, but she loves owls and handmade items, and I just want her to know that I was thinking of her today.

The past 14 years she has been through alot. About 7 years ago today she was diagnosed with Cancer and she was told that the odds of her surviving it was very low cause of her age, but 2 years later she was cancer free and has been since. There were days when she wanted to give up but she looked at my newborn daughter that was born the same week that she was diagnosed and said to herself I have something to live for and that is what gave her the strength to fight. I am so proud of my mom and I am glad that she fought to stay here with us and live life.

So every year when we celebrate my daughter's birth we also celebrate my mom's courage to fight her cancer.

Stamp is from My Pink Stamper... I just got this set in yesterday... what great timing..

Happy Birthday Card

I was just playing around last night and wanted to try an ice cream cone and then I decided to turn into a card ... it was fun playing with the colors... I wanted to put the scoops of ice cream through the cuttlebug folders but forgot oops, but it still turned out cute...

Today I did not do much, a bit sore from yesterday. I did manage to make it to get some pictures printed and to Michael's to pick up a few things and a new punch toy.. will take picture tomorrow and post them.. haha...

I was going to take a ride to Joann's today cause I heard that they had cartridges on sale but come to find out they were only a few that were on sale so nothing I really needed or wanted.

Busy and Exciting Day at the Races

Today was opening day at the moto cross track in our town. I volunteer with our local Ambulance Core and I go to the races with them once a month and stay there for the whole day, which is about 8 to 12 hours ... today was a long day for us there and very busy too....

 Starting Gate.. That was my position today...
 This is me... ugh I look rough, but it was early in the morning ugh
This a turn by the starting gate area which was also part of my track where I was at. This is not zoomed in at all .. this is how close I am to the track/racers

I really enjoy what I do and love being able to help to my limits that I am allowed...
My children have learned so much from me being a volunteer with my ambulance and also being a volunteer firefighter too.. and they have learned alot from it and they are excited to be able to give back to their community when they are old enough too.

Today was my best friends first time going to the races and doing this with us and she loved it.. now she sees what it is all about.. she is in the background of the picture of me... I am so proud of her for getting over her fears. I have to say she handled herself and did what she was trained to do awesomely...
Congrats Rachel... you did it!!!!
Now it is time for me to go and relax and maybe go to bed early tonight, I am exhausted from the events today and a little sore too...

Today I was working a card for a friend of mine that just lost her Aunt and as I am getting ready stamp "Thinking of You" I notice that my stamp is gone and I can't find it  (sigh) So I finally check the vacuum and guess what there it is all chewed up (sigh again), so I am thinking I need to figure out what to do at this point... well I used my computer and printed it out on the paper and then cut it down to what I needed... a lot of work just to get the saying, but it was worth it in the end.

So then I started to search the internet for some stamps... well I found a set from My Pink Stamper that I really liked and it would be great for a few more items that I am working on.. She has some awesome and beautiful stamps...
I ordered "Fabulous Phases" I am excited and can't wait until they come in ... yay!!!!
Hubby said to me then why don't you find out how you can just design your own stamps, haha I just laughed at him... but he was serious~ So now I have him trying to find out how we go about that, cause I am always looking for certain sayings that I like and never can find them on stamps, so today I am writing down some of my favorites....
If you know of any sayings that you would love to see on stamps please leave me a comment and I will add it to my list...

Well off now to get some work done around the house.. 

Apr 6, 2011


Tonight trying to make a card for a baby shower for a friend, and couldn't seem to get my craftiness to flow.. I hate when that happens... I ended up having my hubby and my best friend come in and see what we could come up with .. Well this is what we came up with and the customer loved it...

I actually really like it too.. I kept over thinking it when I was making it and must have cut and sampled a bunch of different things.. But in the end she loved it.
I am hoping that this over thinking thing that I am having tonight is gone by tomorrow... have a bunch of things I need to work.

I finally got my camcorder charged and the tripod all figured out so we are working on the plans for our first video.. it isn't going to be a big major project but something a little simple.

I got my face stamps from Peachy Keen and I love them... I am looking forward to buying another set soon thinking either the snowman ones or the animal faces.. I love them...
They have some great stamp sets ... go check them out.

Just a quick Post

New Pages

Last night was great had some friends over for Scrapbooking and Card Making... We had a lot of fun...
I was able to get two pages done last night... One page I had been working on for a couple of days and then the second one went by fast.. My younger dauhger's page was my hardest one, cause I wasn't sure really how I wanted to do it and my oldest daughter well she had asked me to make her page simple but beatiful...

Today I will be working on some cards.
Hubby is on Ambulance Duty all day and the girls are playing the Wii so I will hopefully get a little time to work in the work room today...
I hope everyone had a great weekend and some nice weather.. today it is beautiful outside so today the windows are open to let some fresh air in the house...

Busy Week

It has been a very busy week around here. We are getting ready to start taping our first video this weekend... I am going to do it on "Glass Etching" using the Cricut and Armor Glass Etching. It should be fun... I will be etching on glass candle holder.

Tomorrow night I am hosting a Scrapping Get Together at my house with some friends, some beginner and some experienced scrapbookers... it is going to be a fun night.

This past week I have made a few vinyl wall decor items for my home and did a couple glass etching projects too. I am working on making the awards for our Ambulance Banquet.

This past week my mom's dog also got killed by another dog that attacked her dog. So I made her a picture frame glass etched the glass with "In Loving Memory" and a image of her dog and then the name and the year. She loved it. I will post a picture of it later. It was very hard on my mom losing her beloved Penny.

Tonight it is just my girls and me, hubby is on Ambulance duty with my oldest son.. so thinking that we will do a movie and relax tonight.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
