GOODBYE - At Least for Now

Hey all my crafty peeps! As you can see I have not posted in a while! The last few months have been pretty busy. I have been crafting, but I have also had a lot of family drama going on and I just haven't had the time or the energy to blog about my crafty adventures. I was going to try and get caught up, but I was mainly doing my blog in the hopes of getting on a design team or two. I haven't been applying to them as I have not had the time and I don't think I will be applying any time soon. So I have decided that at least for now I am going to stop posting my crafty adventures - well at least here on the blog! I am thinking I might try beefing up my blog for my store instead. You can still check out my projects on my other social media pages and one day I might get back to it. Here are a few of my last projects just so you can see what I have been doing over the last few months!

I want to thank everyone who followed me on my blog - I appreciate all the support. And I may start blogging again in the new year. Will see how things go. In the mean time, stay safe and stay crafty my peeps!

Another Diamond Dot Finished

So I didn't get as many diamond dot projects done this summer - mostly because I had planned to do them as projects while camping and we didn't really get out camping much! But I did finally finish the Spiderman one I was making for my grandson!

Not sure if I am going to craft this weekend as I am going to my first Ladies Golf Tournament in like five years. But I do want to play with my newest goodies, so till next time stay crafty my peeps!

Got Another Swap

It was so funny - I mailed off my Altoid Tin swap yesterday and then when I went to get the mail in the afternoon I got my Altoid tin from my partner! It was super cute and so fun. I really love these swapping groups that I am in!!

Things at work are starting to wind down - still busy but not crazy busy so I can get things done. Hoping that means more crafting! So till next time,stay crafty my peeps!

Finally Finished a Swap!

Well even though I had a busy weekend with the Midnight Open Golf Tournament taking up most of my time, I did get the time to finish one of my swaps. I had to do an altered Altoid tin and I think it came out pretty good.

The first thing I did with the tin was to cover it all with Dimensional paste - the new stuff I got from Sizzix. I then painted it and added some of the new Mica Sprays. Though I didn't get photos of those steps I did get pics of the final project.

It was so nice to just spend some time creating in my craft room. Hoping my partner likes what I made her! And I am hoping to keep getting downstairs and being creative!! Till next time then, stay crafty my peeps!!

Coolest Swap

I got the coolest happy mail today! One of my swaps came in - all the way from Portugal! It is so cool - one of my favourite swaps ever.

I also got another Colourize die in the mail - I think this one is one of my favourites of the new set. Cannot wait to make them.

I got some fun new goodies from Scrapendipity too.

Again, more new goodies and still not a lot of time to play! But I will find time eventually. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Getting to Play - At Least a Little

Haven't had much time to play with my new goodies, but I did do a little. I got in the new Tim Holtz Mica Sprays and just had to see how they look. They are SO PRETTY!!

Now I have some great backgrounds to use! I have a few ideas, but not the time to make them quite yet! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps.

More New Goodies

Well the happy mail continued this week. On the weekend during the crop Tim Holtz announced the newest in the Sizzix line, which included a whole bunch of cute new Colourize dies that I just HAD to have!! LOL

I had also seen some cute chipboard on Facebook awhile ago and them came in as well.

Facebook has been good/bad for my wallet because all my crafty pals that own stores put their new stuff up and of course I HAVE to support them! I got these goodies too from Paper Art Creations.

Work is still pretty busy, so not sure when I will get to play with all these new goodies, but I am sure gonna try to find some! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

SO Much Happy Mail!!

Well today was a GREAT mail day - I got SO many goodies. That new Tim Holtz index is kinda gonna be hard on my wallet! LOL

And the goodies from Urban Scrapbook came with a cute little freebie make n take. I did it up and I am going to send it out with one of my next swap projects.

Not sure when I am going to get back down to my craft room to play with all these goodies, but hopefully I will soon. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Library Crop - Day Two

I got a LOT done day two of the crop - even with all the visiting and chatting! I was working on my wedding album - 21 years later but I will get it done eventually. I used the wedding paper I won at a TM crop, as well as some of the stuff from my new Tres Jolie kit. I feel very accomplished that I got so much finished!

And I even won a prize - woohoo!! Yay for me!!

And I forgot to show off the new Stamp I got from my pal ShawnaLee.

It was a really great weekend and so fun to actually get to craft in person with all my peeps. I can't wait to do it again in September. I am also hoping to keep up my crafty roll and stay being creative. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Crafing IN PERSON!!

SO EXCITED!!! We FINALLY get to craft in person. Having our first library crop in well over a year. Only a small group, but so nice to get to visit and chat with my peeps while creating!!

I didn't get a lot of creating done, but I did get to open some more goodies that came in - as well as some great visits with my crafty peeps. I got kits from a new group I joined and I can't wait to play with them.

I also got in some new papers from Treasured Memories when they sent up the sweet kits they gave us all as a donation to the crop. Totally spoiled us!!

I did end up getting one project done! I did another project from the Tiki crop I didn't attend! I used one of my fav family photos for the layout make n take from that crop. 

It was a great first day of cropping and I can't wait to do more tomorrow! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps.

More Happy Mail

I got some more happy mail yesterday - I love being in all these crafty groups as I get some pretty sweet stuff! I actually got stuff from two different partners this time. First up was a couple of swaps from on  gal. She got a bit behind but they were definately worth the wait!!

Then I got my swaps from my pal Sheryl - we have been doing private swaps for awhile, and this time we did a flip flop theme and a camping theme. I absolutely LOVE that she did an octopus and put flip flops on each tenticle!!

I am so looking forward to the crop this weekend. Will finally get to play with more of my new goodies. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
