I am really going to try and make and effort to upload some pictures and keep this blog at least a little more updated. We'll see how long that lasts! Here is a picture of a card that I made about 9 of. Once you get the design/sketch done, doing a bunch of cards assembly line style is a piece of cake. This one used the Trick or Treat Cricut cartridge.

Recently I started wanting to complain about all the things that have been bugging me or that I have felt were wrong around our house and then I had to take a step back to realize that I have A LOT more to be thankful for than I really have to complain about. Yeah, life's not perfect -- but things could be way worse. So I'm focusing on saying Thanks! for what we do have and working on being more grateful. Here's a thank you card that I made a while back that made me start thinking about all the things to be thankful for.... Thanks for looking and have a great day!

You would think that with 24 hours a day, I would be able to find one (or more) to actually spend on crafting and making cards or catching up on scrapbook pages! But, between working 10 hours a day and having five very active kids of my own - it's hard to make time! So I need "challenges" from time to time to motivate me to get busy crafting. My most recent undertaking is bartering with my mother for a laptop. I make her 400 cards and she trades me for a "new-to-me" laptop. :-) Thankfully, she takes card payments and we see her often enough that it keeps me making cards. Here are a few from one of the batches I gave her. Thanks for looking and keep on crafting!

Some day....

Some day I will have time to really craft, stamp and scrapbook like I would like. Until then, I will enjoy every minute of this.... They grow TOOOOOO fast!

Baby Benjamin has arrived!

I don't really have any legitimate excuses why I have let the blog go. But I do have a cute excuse - our final baby has arrived! Benjamin was born on April 13th and is loved by everyone in the house. Carly said the other day that she could just lay by him and stare at him all day long because he is so cute. Sophie is at the age (19 months) where she could just really care less. She acknowledges him, but could really take him or leave him. And Trevor and Collin are just your typical teenagers who just roll their eyes at you, but they do love to help me out and hold him from time to time.

So, now that he is here, I REALLY am going to try and keep up with the blogging world. Ben did actually make it down to the craft room two times in the last couple of days to watch me crank out some cards for my mom. I meant to take some pictures of the cards, but she swooped them up before I had a chance. I do have a couple of pictures of the baby that we are using for his birth announcement which now I need to get done!! :-)

New Cards and a New Year!

So my resolutions for last year pretty much fell by the way-side when it came to keeping the blog updated in any kind of fashion. My biggest problem is that the computer near my craft room doesn't have iPhoto on it so I can't just edit cards/photos as quick as I would like to... So there will be no resolutions this year!! We'll just consider it lucky when new projects get posted. I am "resolving" to use my Cricut more to make cards with and use up as much retired SU! paper as I can this year!

I did get some pictures taken of a few of the last batch of cards that I got made. So here they are! :-)
