April Egg-stravagansa Crop

Well that is another successful crop under my belt! LOL  Even though we only had 7 people, everyone had a nice time and I think they all said they got lots done. I know I did! I finished off everything I needed to send out three different swaps this weekend, as well as getting an envelope album almost finished. I was a crafting machine!!

Friday night I finished the last of the swaps I had to complete. I was in a swap where we had to alter an egg. We could do one large egg or some smaller ones. I ended up getting a couple larger styrofoam eggs at Michaels and decided to do them both for my partner. I also had my husband make me a makeshift stand for them - so I had somewhere for them to sit when they dried. I liked how they looked on the stand so much I decided to just decorate the whole stand as a total project. Here is how it came out.

On Saturday, I started off by finishing a couple tags. The plan was to give one to one of my swap partners. I loved them both and was torn over which to keep and which one to give away!

This first tag is the bonus project I got from a class I signed up for at Mixed Up Creative Academy If you are looking for some great classes to take on mixed media I HIGHLY recommend this site!!

This tag was also inspired by that course.

Then I wanted to create some cards to send to all my swap partners. These are the cards that I came up with. I love the Stamperia paper lines - they are very inspiring!!

And the best part of this crop? I am basically already packed for my upcoming crop in Edmonton! LOL All I had to do was a little re-organizing and I am all set.

I also got all my props/costume stuff ready for the crop. The theme is Star Wars, which is TOTALLY up my alley! Wasn't hard to get together what I needed. All I had to do was raid my husband's closet!

Not sure if I will be doing any more crafting this week, since I am gonna be really busy getting everything done I need to before I head to the city. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Getting ready to get my craft on this weekend at another library crop. We are doing an Easter theme and I got some cool prizes for everyone. I am all ready to go I think!

As I said though, I got a couple orders of scrapbook goodies this week - from R & R Scrapbooking and Scrap Shotz. I plan on using a bunch of those supplies this weekend! Check out my goodies!!

As you can see, I also got the prizes for my crop this weekend from my AMAZING crafty pal Juli and her cool Etsy shop. I just love everything she makes! Make sure you check her out. And here are some pictures of the goodies I got to keep for myself!!

Can't wait for work to be over so I can get my craft on! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Had a crazy week trying to get caught up afer the Easter break, so didn't really get down to my craft room. But I do have a crop this weekend so hoping to get lots done.

In the meantime, I do have to share the goodies I got in the mail just before I left and when I was gone. The first thing I got was my tags from the tag swap I was in. I did a short reveal video so you can see all the goodies I received - I got spoiled!!

I also took some photos so you can see them closer up. 
I really love them all, along with all the extras.

I also got some goodies I purchased, but I will save those for another post. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Just got back from a wonderful birthday weekend for my Dad who turned 80 last week. I didn't really get to my craft room much as I was planning for the trip, but I wanted to share some of the great photos we got! I cannot WAIT to scrapbook them.  I haven't seen my Dad that happy in a very long time. We had a great time that is for sure!

I really cannot wait to scrapbook these photos! I will be makinga book for my Dad so that he has a nice keepsake from the event. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
