So It's Friday

So it's Friday and I actually have the computer on.  I don't use the computer much these days, just my IPad anymore.  This time of year though I'm getting ready for NASCAR, yes I'm a fan!  I run a league and I'm getting all the teams input and ready to go.

I have also been in my craft studio a little bit, enough to make a huge mess again!!  I always seem to be looking for things that I know I have but can't find.  I did make my grandsons Valentine Day cards and got them mailed off to Michigan, even remembered to take a photo.

Here are the Valentine cards I made, one for Liam and one for Graisen.  I used red glitter paper, so there's a glare and I couldn't get a photo without it.

After I'm done cleaning up my mess yet again, I'm ready for St. Patrick's Day and Easter cards!  

I almost forgot, I did finish a project and got to use some of my faucet knobs!!  It looks better in person than it does in the photo.  Put it right next to the window that I just love!!  lol

So back to working on projects and cleaning up my messes which is never ending for me.  Love it when people post pictures of their mess, makes me feel better about the messes I make when I'm making cards and projects.

Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon!!

Happy New Year (A bit late)

Happy New Year ( A bit late) to everyone and hope you all had a very happy holiday season!  My holidays consisted of lots of cookie baking and family and it was wonderful. This new year hoping to be a better blogger, but didn't make any resolutions.  I always try to make time to blog, but never seem to find the time and don't want to blog unless I have photos of things I've done to post.  I did make Christmas cards this last Christmas and it was the first time I've actually gotten to make anything for what seems forever.  They turned out nice and I made cards for the boys that turned out cute.  This last week Fun Stampers Journey had their Lead With Heart leadership convention and I wasn't able to attend, but a lovely lady, Kerry, made a group and had all kinds of activities for those who also couldn't attend.  It was so much fun and I was even able to make a couple of the projects!!  Everything for the 4 days was Vegas related (that's where the Lead With Heart convention was).

So this year I'm planning on crafting weekly, finishing started projects and just have more crafting fun. The Fun Stampers Journey convention is the beginning of June and I hope I'll be able to go, but not likely.  Who knows, maybe I'll be able to save enough money, stranger things have happened!!  lol

Here are Anthony's (my son) favorite cookies.  You can't tell, but that's a large container and it takes me all day to make these.  I didn't buy 2 more cookie sheets this year, so now I have 4 and it makes things go faster.

This is the Christmas card I made for the boys.  I totally forgot to take a picture, so I had Sara take a picture for me!!

I totally forgot to take a picture of the Christmas cards I made, but I had a couple that I didn't finish.  So here's a half done card.  lol

Here are a couple projects that I did for the We're Not In Vegas challenges.

Well it's good to be back and hopefully I'll be back with another post this weekend!!  Have a great rest of the week.
