1st Cameo Project!

Hi there!! I received my Cameo earlier this week! First, I was using self-discipline and finishing up some projects. Then I admired it for a couple days and finally found it a spot in my craft room! (I can't work unless everything is in its space lol) Then I kept looking at it and was really intimidated by it! After looking at my crafty to do list and all the CUTE SVG's out there I thought I NEED to cut something! My first cut didn't turn out so well but its okay because I was practicing! I decided to not do something as intricate for the first time and it turned out so much better! 

I have always wanted to make a pinwheel and finally did it! Now I want to put pinwheels everywhere lol! 

I used My Minds Eye for the patterned paper. I added a brad and a pearl. I attached it to a pink and white striped straw from Jaded Blossom

Happy Retirement!!

Hi there!! Today is a HUGE day for my Mom! It is officially her last day of work! She is retiring and will have a lot more time on her hands! I am so proud to call her my Mom! She is such a hard worker! I made a banner for her at her work luncheon. It was a surprise for her because I mailed it to a friend to hang up! The surprise was a big success! Here is the banner~

She loved her banner! I can't wait to read your thoughts! 

Crafty hugs,

I am so proud of my sister Crystal today! She is graduating with her Associate In Science today with an emphasis in Health Science! She has been working so hard for this and the day has finally come. It has been a long journey with lots of hurdles but she has managed and finally met her goal! I am very proud of her. I know my Mom is also proud of her! I can hear it in her voice every time I talk with her! I am very sad that I will not be able to attend her Graduation today but sent a Banner for her so she knows I am thinking of her! Here are the pics! I will add more pics with her by the banner after she graduates! 

I am very PROUD of you Crystal and wish I could spend this day with you! 

I used Birthday Bash for the Banners and font. My friend Abby cut out the Graduation Caps for me! I added some twine for the tassel.

The stamps on the tag are from Jaded Blossom's Easter Treats set! 

These yummy carrots can be filled with Cheez-its, Cheetos, Goldfish, anything orange!

Easter Surprise

Hi there! I am loving making quick and simple treats for people this week! Today's treat is hiding in my hubby's lunchbox! I always like to make sure he has something sugary on hand since he is diabetic and tends to get low during the workday. He is such a hard worker! I know he is going to care more about the candy than the tag so I kept it really simple! This is a great idea when you are making a ton of tags or are giving them to kids that will rip them off as soon as they see it lol! Here is my lil Easter Surprise~

 I stamped the Easter Poem onto my Jaded Blossom Flag Die. Then added an Easter Egg Stamp and tied it together using my pink and white twine! I chalked the edge of the flag green and colored in the egg with my Copic markers! 

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you stop and Say Hi on my NEW Facebook Page!
