HSM or crafting?????

Well, I had planned on crafting all day today, but it didn't happen. I didn't plan on having a High School Musical marathon this weekend either and that DID happen! I looked after my friends kids Saturday night and ended up watching High School Musical 1 and 2. Is it just me or does it remind anyone else of Grease?!

Carly, J.J. and I hung out in the kitchen watching the movies while Max rested and watched his shows in the living room as he wasn't feeling well. It was quite a peaceful night!
Liz and Jason have started decorating the house for Halloween as that's their BIG holiday. Pumpkins hanging in trees, rats, heads on sticks, skeletons swinging from the trees............ It's quite the setup. They also decorate INSIDE and have a lifesize creepy guy that lifts his head off his shoulders. It freaked me out everytime I went back into the kitchen (after checking on Max). If anyone's in North Vancouver they should check it out! I'll try to post some pics.

So getting to the reason I didn't craft today................... I took the kids to HSM 3!!! On opening weekend! Liz mentioned they wanted to go and suggested I may like to take them since I was "on a role" with it all. I can't even remember the last movie I saw in the theatre. Anyway, considering I'm a little older than the intended audience, it wasn't so bad.

Actually I DID make one card earlier today. I used the Cuttlebug divine swirls and to make it a little fancier I went over the swirls with Star dust Stickles.

Good times...

Tonight I had a nice get together with some old co-workers from BCCA. It was hard for me to leave my position there a few months back, but it helps to know that I've made friendships that will last a lifetime....

On the first day of Christmas

OK, here's the start of my Christmas cards. I bought this stamp last year but never used it. I didn't quite know what to do with it. Jessica had the idea to make it look like a snow globe. I don't think it necessarily looks like one, but I think it turned out alright. I used Stickles for the snow on the ground and roof and around the circle for added decoration.

Needs something more......

This is another late night card. I think it needs something more but can't quite figure out what. I used mini dot stickers for the "light bulbs". Does anyone have any ideas??????

Late night crafting

So this is what I came up with last night when I should have been going to bed... I used the square Mega Marvy punch on the front of the card and stamped the bird on the inside. To fancy it up I used Stickles on the hat. It was easy, so I think I'll be making more of them.

Stamps by A Muse. Not quite sure who the flower embellishment is by......

Fancy Schmancy

I obviously didn't make this card, but my Mom thought it was pretty cool....... I received it from the dealership I bought my car from (they're trying to get me to spend more $$$ for the new model!). It IS pretty impressive. I told Jessica about it and I think she's pretty jealous since she copied me and bought the same car (different place) but didn't receive one of these. Oh well, I guess we know who's won now..........................


Here's another card I made for Jessica's blog candy, not so sure about it..... I'm thinking maybe I should have just put another star instead of the tag. Hmm, but at least I'm back to making cards!

Shiny, sparkly candy!

Check out the haul over at Shimmerz Paints, LOVE IT!!! There are so many uses..........

Night owl..........

I'm just wondering why it is that I get started on things around 10:00pm? It's not that I'm tired or anything earlier on in the evening, I just get motivated to do things when I should be getting ready for bed! I've sat around all night, and now I think I'll start making cards. What's up with that? Last night I was up at 1:00am and it felt like it was 8:00pm!!!!!!!!!! I pretty much had to MAKE myself go to bed. If anyone has any ideas on how to change this, I'd appreciate it, but for now I'm feeling crafty....................

Eat it up Army dude...

I finally got out of the house this weekend and had a sleepover at Jessica's for a craft-a-thon/computer tutorial (hence the blog!). Her daughter Chloe is hilarious and comes up with the craziest stuff! At breakfast she kept saying "Eat it up army dude", at least that's what I thought she was saying. Maybe we should check with Lamar at daycare since that's where she says she got it from. Of course, she also gets the crazy stuff from Jess' aunts.... Anyone know where I can get a Goat or a Boat???????????

My second Blog Candy entry!

Here's my second attempt at getting some candy! This is for Jessica's challenge JJSC003 Igot the simple yet sophisticated idea from Julie Ebersole at Paper Trufflez, check out her fantabulous blog!

Stamps by A Muse and Pink Cat Studio.

Boler Christmas

Nothing like singing Christmas carols around an open fire........... We have a Boler trailer and enjoy taking it out. Even if it means being a little on the chilly side. Just means more blankets and some whisky.
Stamps by A Muse and Memory Box

I'm on a roll..............

Looks like I could be getting the hang of this. This one's good since I have trouble making "masculine" cards. Stamp by A Muse. Stickles. Scalloped rectangle punch by Marvy.

First Card up

This card would have been great for Jessica's blog candy, if only I hadn't layered. Of course then it wouldn't look the same! Both stamps on the card are from A Muse.

Blog candy

Check out Emily Kate's blog for some VERY yummy candy.

Welcome to my Blog....

Hmm, not quite sure what this is all about, but I guess I'll find out along the way. I may have to get my computer geek friend to help out every now and then, but I'm sure she won't mind since I'm her mini-me.
