Got some great happy mail today! I received another great swap - this time an altered paint brush. I am still working on mine for my partner, but I definitely got spoiled from my partner! Check out all my goodies and the great brush she made me.

I have to finish her brush this weekend, along with the altered lamp for my pal Gena. So will have pictures soon. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So I have NOT dropped off the face of the planet! Things have been pretty crazy the month of June at work and when I have gotten home I just have not had the energy or inclination to get myself into my craft room. Really bad of me, but sometimes you just loose your mojo for a bit. As you can see I have even fallen a bit behind in opening all the happy mail I have been getting!

My mojo is slowly coming back and I will be having crops coming up and swaps to finish so will hopefully be posting more soon. But in the meantime, here is a  quick video of some of the happy mail I have gotten recently!

I have to say I really scored with all these packages! I can't wait to play with it all! Make sure you check out Treasured and Reneabouquets to see all the great stuff they have!

And I just love the altered lamp that my pal Gena made for me. Here are a couple pictures of it.

I have to finish making Gena's lamp for her so will post photos of that as soon as I get it done. I have another swap to do and design team projects to work on so keep tuned into my blog to check out all my projects.

Till next time stay crafty my peeps!

And of course the shopping continues! I have an addiction that is for sure. I got some great kits in from another crafty site that I found through some friends. Byrds Nest Paperie is a great site to get some AWESOME kits. She puts together great kits and easy instructions. I just love them. You can check her out either on Etsy or on her Facebook page. Here is a little video of the kits I got this time.

I love taking these to crops as she gives you everything you need and sometimes at crops it is nice not to have to think!

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So I have seen this image on Facebook many times, and it definitely applies to me! LOL

I got more happy mail last week, but didn't have a chance to open it and film it till the weekend I got myself some more goodies from my pal Renea and her great shop ReneaBouquests. I was working with her papers when at my crop in Grimshaw and when I started showing my pals her great stuff I realized I needed (well wanted!) more butterflies. She makes such pretty ones I had to get more! I can't wait to play with all my new stuff!

And here is a shot of all the butterflies/dragonflies and paper that I got.
 Pretty good haul I have to say!

I have had trouble getting motivated but I am hoping to get back to creating this week. Especially since the weather is so crappy and I don't want to be outside! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

I cannot believe it is already the beginning of June - and that means a new challenge over at the Canvas Corp Brands blog. The theme this month is "TO THE SEA", and I was one of the crew members that contributed to the samples that are up on the blog to give you all ideas on the challenge. Make sure that you check me out here: To The Sea Challenge

When you click on the link it will give you the details, but I will let you know what they are here as well. All you have to do is create any type of project and as your inspiration use anything connected to the sea. To enter the challenge just go to the link I posted above and then on that page use the linytool to add your entry. Somewhere in your entry you have to put #ccbchallenge for it to be considered and only one entry per person is allowed (all details are on the CCB blog post). The winner of the challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer for CCB and will get a box of goodies to play with. I hope you enter as I would love to see what you create!

Myself and other members of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew were asked to create projects for this challenge to give you an idea of how you can play with CCB products and to give you inspiration for your projects. This is the project I did for the challenge.

I can't wait to see what people create for this challenge! After Steampunk the SEA/Beach themed projects are one of my favorites to do! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
