Happy Halloween!!

Hey everyone! I just want to wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween! Get lots and lots of candy. Here's the photo of the pumpkin that me and my husband carved. You see why I work with paper and glue instead of gourds. LOL!

So Impressive.

I'm pretty excited. I bought some awesome stuff last night online from I love this little store. They have so much unique stamps and embellishments it's crazy! Here is what I bought:

The Little Brown Box
I thought that this little box would make for an interesting card, invitation or just another way to present a card. It is definitely a lot cuter than a boring envelope. I just love the color too! You can mix brown with a ton of colors to get an awesome combination.

Stampable Coasters
I love these. Ok. I don't just love these...I'm absolutely, head-over-heels in love with these things. How cute are they?? I mean really!! I can't wait to get my crafty little hands on these!! You can cover them in patterned paper or stamp them. They would make such a cute gift set with a coffe mug or hot chocolate/coffee mix.
I just thought that I would share some of the neat things that I purchased last night. Ya'll really need to hop on over to the website and take a look. I know you'll love it! Have a good one! I'm off to clean and then hopefully off to make something!

What's New, Pussycat??

I haven't posted in several days, possibly weeks. I'm adjusting to my new home pretty well and becoming very domestic in the process. I never thought in a million years that I would be as homey as I've become. I didn't know that I had it in me!! I always said that I would never turn into my mother and I'm finding similarities everyday. That's ok, though. I love my mommy.

I actually just finished baking. Baking, that's right, from scratch. I found this awesome recipe online for apple streusal muffins. Oh my good gracious! They are sooooo yummy. Especially, with a cup of coffee. They are just right for this time of year and the chunks of apples that are baked into the muffins are a nice surprise to find. I definitely think that they are worth the effort. I will have pictures of them up shortly. Hopefully, tomorrow.

I'm a little disappointed in myself because I haven't been making cards as much as I used to. I have things put together but they aren't finished. There is a Christmas card in my craft studio that I started on tonight and I will be working on that. I also have a personalized stationery set that is incomplete. There are three cards and I was hoping for at least ten cards in a set. I have a long way to go. On the other hand, I have one completed card that just needs to be posted to all of my sites. I finished that one tonight before I started baking. Its an OK card. I'm slowly working my way back into the groove of making cards until they come out of my ears. I never realized how much laundry and cleaning would take up most of my time. This is the first time that I've ever been out on my own. I've never had to do any of this stuff.

I just thought I would keep ya posted on what's been going on with me. I will have the picture of the card and muffins tomorrow. =)

Have a good one, ya'll!

I'm still here...

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am making things but I just don't have have as much time as I used to. I have some things in progress and I promise that I will have them up as soon as I finish them. I'm also embroidering a baby quilt for my BFF. That's taking up most of my's gonna be adorable!!! So, hang in there with me.

I'm also thinking about doing a giveaway. When I moved in to my new home I went through my paper stash. I have a lot of repeat paper and paper that I don't think is too attractive. I think you ladies out there will love it though! I'll give you more details when I get ready to part with my paper.

FINALLY!!! A new card. I never thought that I would get another one up for ya'll to see but I did and I hope you enjoy it! It took me a while to make this card and I thought I had lost my cardmaking mojo. I guess a Hawaiian Honeymoon will do that. =P

Anyway, the orange cardstock is from an 8"x8" sheet that I had. I'm not really sure who it is by or where I got it from. The tulle that is used is actually from the candy box that was waiting in our limo. It wasn't in the box but it was wrapped around the box. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be usable if it was inside. Although, it would be a yummy piece of tulle. LOL! The chipboard letters are from Tim Holtz and the button is from a stash of buttons that I have. I believe the patterend paper is from either Making Memories or K & Company. I'm not totally sure. I've had it forever.

I hope you like my newest creation and you can purchase this at my Facebook page or on my eWillow page. Thanks for looking and much love!
