So many toys, so little time …

11 Jun

Well hello bloggers … I have to apologize for the unintentional gap in post.

I enjoy shopping – I have not met a crafter who doesn’t. Most of the time, I have some degree of self-control but ocassional,  I lose it (com’on – I’m human)! So I got totally carried away shopping yesterday … and now I’m totally playing with my new toys. Woo Hoo!!

Here is my haul …

Yes I mean really Carried Away – all unintentional purchases – really, everyone needs a Vagabond (doesn’t matter if I already have a Silhouette).

On a positive note, lookie what I made with my Zutter-Bind-it-All. Got to use it … at least once. Actually, I intent to make a Copic Coloring Book too (but that’s another post).

Have a fun day!! I intent to … in my craftroom.

Change is good, right?

23 May

You may have noticed that I have been making little changes to the design of my blog every so often. But today, I have hit the mother load of change – I’ve changed the entire hosting domain of my blog. From Blogger to WordPress. Apparently, Daniel, my technology GURU, thinks Blogger is not “powerful and versatile” enough so I have to go to a “better” one – solely his opinion, but after the blogger outage last week, I am inclined to agree.

Anyhow, you will be getting a new invite to follow me on my new blog address … sorry about the inconvenience. But please continue to subscribe to my blog. I very much appreciate your support of my creative journey.

And to welcome you to my new blog space. Here is a card for you.

Enjoy …. and 3 more days to my Copic certification class!! I’m excited beyond words.

End of the school year …

20 May

I’m sad that 1 of my children is graduating preschool … the end of his 1st formal school experience, the end of some of his 1st friendships, the end of some closer adult relationships he has built with his teachers.

There is also some degree of excitment about starting kindergarten in the fall – new teachers, new school, new friends, “new toys”, new learnings, a new beginning of being a “big boy” … I suppose there will be many more ends and beginnings to come.

But don’t forget to thank the teachers who make your children’s school experience a memorable one. Here is one of the cards I made for his teachers.

Background patterned paper is from Karen Foster School Collection. Journaling lines on the white cardstock is part of the Impression Obsession Cover-a-card notebook stamp. The pencil is part of the October Afternoon report card clear stamp collection and is embossed with  Ranger super fine black embossing powder and colored with Copic markers (Y04, E00, E31, C03). Sentiment is diecut using my Silhouette machine.

Have a happy scrappy summer.
