A Productive Day = Completed Swaps!

I must say.... I have been quite producitve lately, actually getting things done! LOL!  Ok, so not as much as I would like to get done around the house, but PLENTY done in my scraproom!  That counts, right? :)

Between Monday and Wednesday, I was able to complete 4 swaps that I am currently in!  That is a total of TWENTY NINE cards that I put together!  WOW!  I do have MUCH more creating that I want to get done, but made a deal with myself that I MUST get this house *sPaRkLy* clean first.  Below you'll find a couple of cards that I created for some of the swaps.  


  • To get our house in order and *sPaRkLy* clean
  • Make a trip out to the post office
  • Complete a set of 9 cards for a swap... using CTMH's NEW Florentine paper pack
  • At least BEGIN the double layouts for another swap
Here's hoping you all have a terrific Thursday and that I can get through my list of things to do!

Created using CTMH Sonoma papers as well as our Rock the Block stamp set.

Been Felling Crafty! :)

Hello fellow bloggers... here's hoping you all have had a FABULOUS week so far!  I have actually spent the last few days creating and trying to get my crafty juices flowing while I sat around awaiting my NEW CTMH Spring/Summer products!  Long and behold, all of my boxes of GOODIES arrived have arrived!  YAY!  Which meant LOTS more creating today!

I am so excited to dig into all of these FaBuLoUs NEW products!  LOVING LOVING LOVING our NEW papers as well as ALL of the NEW stamp sets (especially the one's that coordinate with our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge!)!  

Here are a couple of cards I have created these past couple of days!  I hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year to ALL!

WOW!  Already 2012?!?!  I just can't get past how quickly that year flew by.  Here hoping you all have a FABULOUS start to a FABULOUS New Year!

As I reflect on the year that just passed, there are a few changes I'd definitely like to make for 2012.  First things first, I plan on managing my time more wisely as well as staying more organized. :)  Hopefully that will get me in my scraproom creating more!  I'd also like to remember to slow down at times, take a deep breath and not sweat the small stuff so much this year... just kinda 'go with the flow'.  I tend to stress out easily over some things that just aren't worth it!  And I definitely need to be healthier this year.... making healthier choices when eating as well as getting my workouts in!  Here's to a FABULOUS New Year!  What are YOUR plans/goals for 2012?
