So apparently May has not been a crafty month for me - this cold has just kicked my but and I have just not had the energy to get down to my craft room. Of course, that hasn't stopped me from shopping! LOL

I ordered a few things off Simon Says Stamp - things I haven't been able to get anywhere else. I also ended up winning a gift certificate from a Facebook contest. So I got myself a few goodies. Check out the YouTube video I made of my newest goodies!

I have several swaps to start now and all these new goodies to play with - as well as next months design team project to start. So will hopefully have a few more posts this month.

Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

I swear I have NOT disappeared off the face of the earth! I have just been so sick and then busy that I haven't had much of a chance to post. But I thought I should try and post about my weekend crop.

I had such a great time at the Friends of FloMac Fundraising crop this weekend. It was really great to be able to attend a crop at home that I didn't have to do anything but be a participant. It was relaxing and fun, though I didn't get a whole lot done!

It was a really fun group of ladies and I got to sit with my pals Dawn and Treena from La Crete so got in some great visiting. I did not get a whole lot of crafting done but I did finish one project over the weekend. This was inspired by a project that was taught at Scrap Addicts by Annette Green of Graphic 45. I was not able to go down for the class but then I went through my stash and realized that I had everything I needed already to do it myself. Thanks for the inspiration Annette/Graphic 45!!

I also did one of the make n' takes from the weekend. I added some shading to the project to make it pop. Pretty happy with the end result.

I didn't come home with much for prizes, even though I bought tickets on everything! But I did end up with one of the silent auction items. I got the Sundae basket so for supper on Sunday Doug and I had some awesome sundaes!

So I am hoping to get more time in my craft room this week as my cold is finally starting to go away. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So this has been one VERY long week! My husband had a slight cold last week and when I caught it, it hit me like a freight train! I have been off sick pretty much all week. But I do have some fun stuff to post so now that I finally feel like I am back in the land of the living I wanted to share!

May 1st my latest design team project went up on the Mixed Media Mojo blog - this is what I did this month for the theme Celebration with the twist of weddings.

On the 29th I will have my Design Team post and I will do a picture tutorial on how I made this canvas. I am also thinking of entering it in a local art show which might be kinda fun.

But now that I am back to the land of the living I am going to a crop this weekend! I will be spending tonight and tomorrow hanging with friends getting my craft on! I am all packed and ready to go!

A couple of the girls I am sitting with are working on a project together, and I want to play with my new sprays.

I will post more pictures over the weekend. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
