Monday 8/8

Mariah came over today and we did a little crafting. She was working on a top secret somethin' somethin', and I finished up my first dress form. I am not alltogether happy with the whole tag, I love the graphic 45 paper, but I don't think it matches the fairy costume too well- but I made the fairy costume just messing around so I wasn't thinking of colors......oh well, here it is:)

I used the cricut to cut transparency paper for the wings, and then embossed it with the cuttlebug,
and finally used alcohol inks- this looks really pretty in the window, kinda like a sun catcher:)

Scrap-tacular day 2 :)

Well, I didn't get very much done today at all. I guess that's what happens when you watch Army Wives while crafting haha, kind of distracting I guess:) I did get a chunky charm done today for my mini album swap, I got the mini album binded (yay me), and I started working on a dress form fairy (I'll post pics of that when I am finished).

Scrap-tacular- Day 1 :)

Well, it's 2 am and we have been at this for about 14 hours. Haven't gotten  whole lot done though.....Kelley and I angeled a Disney swap for a girl on the cricut boards today, and then I played with dominos (altering, not gaming haha) for a while. So here's a couple of the dominos:

A set of dominos I made for Kelley to use in one of her swaps:)

For a mini album I'm making
Hopefully I get more done tomorrow......we'll see!!!

Cleaned up the craft room :)

Kelley is coming over tomorrow for a 2-day-scrap-tacular :) woohoo....... thought I'd better clean up the scrap room a bit though. SOOOO since it is rarely clean enough for pics, I took this opportunity to snap a few.

shamelessly trying to cover some of my mess in the closet :)

My crafty area- don't look too closely, it's still kind of messy :)

Matchbox Swap

This doesn't count for this week, but I just thought I would share a couple projects I completed recently. The first is an altered matchbox for a swap on the cricut mb's. The second is a set of altered domino magnets, not sure if they're finished yet, but they sure are cute!

I lovelovelove fairies! Thank you to TShreve on the cricut mb for letting me scraplift your fairy magnet idea!

Post #1

So many projects, so little time! At least that's how I feel. A new crafty idea comes to me, and then it's forgotten (kinda like the clothes someone keeps shoving under their bed........Miss Emily). Enter new blog! Now, I am not quite as ambitious as my good friend Kelley (Addicted2Paper ) who tries to scrap each and every day, but I can commit myself to completing at least one thing each week (let's start small haha), So here goes nothing........or could it be something!
