Think summer!

It's been a long cold, snowy winter here in Papillion this year! I think that's what prompted me to make a summery looking card. This card will be going on the auction basket for Columb's Ceili. :-)

We had a pretty busy week here filled with basketball games and such. When this posts, I hope to be sitting in a spa chair, sipping a mocha from Starbucks enjoying a pedicure! Ahhh....what a great way to start the weekend!

Cards for the auction

Here are two cards that are going in the auction basket for the Columb's Ceili. Out of 52, I already have 10 done! Woo hoo! Maybe I will get them done before the time crunch kills me! :-) The brown polka dot card reminds me of a cute little skirt that Carly has. And who doesn't love chocolate!! Thanks for looking and I'll see you back here real soon!

Baby shower invitations and my baby helper!

Here's my little helper who might as well get acclimated with the craft room from an early age, because she's likely to spend a great deal of time in there either watching me or playing!!

My mother in law is hosting a shower for the daughter of one her friends in February, so I volunteered to make the shower invitations. I think they turned out cute, but I will say - since they didn't find out what sex the baby is it would have been more fun to make pink or blue invites.... I used the Stampin' Up! set called Swell News and paper pieced together the dress. I love paper piecing images!

Reviving the blog - and some New Year's Resolutions!

It's time to get this blog back to life! It seems like time just gets away from me and quite frankly, Sophie and everyone else just seem to suck up my time, so that when I do have a free moment all I want to do is vegetate! :-)

So I have two craft related goals for 2010. The first is to make at least ten cards a month. The second is to scrapbook at least ten pages a month. Those shouldn't be too hard to do, right!? I did get a new photo printer just so that I would have no excuses why I couldn't get some scrapbooking done!

I volunteered, just last night, to make a basket of cards again this year for our church's big auction celebration. So to make that happen, I'd better get to crafting! My goal is to get back to posting on Saturdays with what I've been up to during the week!
