I'm Alive!

Life has been pretty crazy since my last post which was WELL OVER a year ago! :( Right after my last post we started house hunting again and about a week or two in, we found our home! We saw it on and instantly were in love and wanted it. We figured we would do the smart thing and check it out first but immediately upon looking at it, we were in love! It was exactly what we were looking for except for a few minor things that could easily be changed down the road... But falling in love was easy... Getting it, was not. It was a short sale...

Put offer in around February, finally accepted in March... We were so excited and had no idea what was about to happen so we started packing, my scrapbook room was first! :( But time went on, closing dates were moved, seller wouldn't move out, one thing after another... But FINALLY we closed in May... and that almost didn't happen... Then the real fun started... Work! It was a fixer upper and lots had to be done before we even thought about moving in... Basement was full of junk, Three 30 yard dumpsters full later, it was emptied and cleaned out, fish tanks everywhere, more furniture up stairs, we refinished all hardwood floors, redid all ceiling since it was the sparkly swirled textured kind (now they are nice and smooth), Painting every ounce of ceiling, floor, and molding, Painting outside of the house... and everything else we did... Finally moved in around July... But we still have so much work to do even after we moved in. So needless to say, my scrapbook room did not get unpacked for a long time... I knew if I did unpack it I wouldn't get as much work on house done... :)

I will post some before and after pictures of the house at some point, tons of pictures I need to weed through. But it was unpacked and set up in our spare room... I built a desk using cube shelves and a pocket door my husband stained... SUPER easy and I LOVE IT!


 I also made a HUGE change with my crafting... I sold my beloved Cricut! :( I sold everything I had for my Cricut in one big bundle to my neighbor. Glad it's going to a good new home... To replace the Cricut, I got a Silhouette Cameo which I haven't gotten to play with too much yet but so far, I'm in love! :o)

Well time to feed my son lunch. He is already TWO! Time flies. I'll leave you with some cards and lay outs I've done the past couple months... I hope to post more soon!

Here are a couple cards I've done as well as a vinyl project I did above my Son's play area.

Here is a card for my Nephew's First Birthday:

Here is a card I made for my Papa in Florida. He made my son a really cute bear out of wood. :)

His name Wyatt is all vinyl but the truck I made out of paper and taped it up... My son had to be in the picture. He is a little ham and LOVE when the camera comes out! :)

Enjoy. Hopefully I'll have more time soon to work on my son's album. I said I wanted to try and stay ahead but I am sooooo far behind!! haha.

My poor poor blog!

It's been forever... Too long I might say. I have been doing some craft projects but they are quick and on the go cards for weddings, showers, and birthdays. Some i make so quick and send out, I forget to take a picture. But below is a wedding card I did remember to take a photo of...

I wanted to post a link to the blog where I got the svg file of the bride and groom since they were nice enough to share the file but I can't find it and Wyatt is up from his nap. I think his teeth are bothering him. He already has one poking through and he didn't seem bothered but today he is cranky which isn't him. Of course because it's my Birthday today too!! :)

Enjoy. Hope to play soon. I ordered a Your Story a couple months ago but haven't had time to play with it. :(

National Scrapbook Day Challenge #7

Got a little time this morning to quickly scrapbook a page from my honeymoon for My Pink Stamper's National Scrapbook Day Challenge. Its picture of a light house we visited on Martha's Vineyard. I really need to find time to finish my honeymoon album so I can start Wyatt's Album!!

Now I'm off to spend the day with my family to celebrate my FIRST Mother's Day! :)

Happy Mother's Day to all the great Mom's out there!!

National Scrapbook Day with My Pink Stamper

Today My Pink Stamper is having National Scrapbook Day Challenges.

As you can imagine, with a newborn, I haven't seen much of my scrapbook space but i had to make a card for my mom tomorrow so I'm taking advantage of nap time. Instead of cleaning, doing laundry, etc I'm taking the weekend off for Mother's Day. I made a quick card which I love. It was super easy and quick! Robyn said to challenge your self and finish in less then an hour... Try 20 mins!

Also got my paper racks!! :) Super excited. Still have some paper organizing to do but i LOVE it. Will make my life much easier when finding paper for projects.

Well, like clock work, he is up and ready to eat! If he goes back to sleep after this, maybe I can get back to my scrapbook desk! :)
