A Card for a Scrappy Friend

Beth with Bethsscrapbookroom on YouTube is collecting cards for Bambi, a scrappy friend who is very ill.  She has not been able to do a lot of crafting and has been selling her craft supplies.  Beth though it would be nice to do a giveaway but the giveaway required that you do a card for Bambi. Beth then sends the cards and goodies to Bambi in hopes that it will brighten her day.  Get well soon Bambi.  We love you!

Some pics of the card I made.

Christmas Cards 2012 (sort of)

Some Christmas cards I have done in the past and some I spruced up a little.  I think they turned out okay.  See video below to get a better look.  Thanks!

Thanksgiving/Christmas Cards from Scrappy Buddy FroggyGreenStamper

Stacy is so sweet to send me these.  The Thanksgiving card was one for a swap but I did not have time to sign up for the Christmas swap but she sent me one anyway.  How sweet she is.   Video below to see her cute cards.  Thanks Stacy!!

Merry Christmas!!

I hope you guys had a very Merry Christmas!  This is our first Christmas in new home and it was a good one. This is our new little tree. It was Bobby's mother's that we got after she passed away.  The angel on top was her and it was perfect.  The fireplace turned out looking great too. 

That smile says it all..."yeah, I am up to something!"

Miss "I look good in this Santa outfit" is so cute in this little outfit.  Oh, I guess she was right huh?

Daniel and his honey...I mean fiance'.  Are they just so cute!

Amy just loves her "Oma-in-law".  I was so glad Oma was able to come. She has not been feeling well and packing up and coming to our house seems to get harder and harder for her.  I told her that next year will not be a problem since she will be living with us anyway.  So she don't have "pack" for anything.

A father/son moment in time.  Awww how cute they are!

My boys have gotten so big.  Look how little that big tree looks with them standing beside it.  Belittles it big time.  Oh wait.  That's right, we had a small tree this year.  They are still so grown up though.

Aww how cute are they.  Bobby and I love them so much! They are such good boys..I mean MEN.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!  Hope you have a wonderful 2013!

All Moved In.....

...but not settled!  The week after we moved, I got the flu so the unpacking had to take a back seat til I was well.  Ok almost 2 weeks now and we have just about gone through all the boxes unpacking and storing. My wonderful son put some flooring in the attic so I would have more storage space.  Our garage is enclosed so there was NO room for storing all the stuff we had.  I just did not realize how much you accumulate over the years!  We had to have TWO 26' trucks..and then some!! Our old house had plenty of storage - walk-in storage in the attic and here..none!  So where did it all go.  Well it all went into the enclosed garage...which is supposed to be my new craft room.

BUT as time went on, one by one, the boxes started to disappear.  I bit the bullet and have gotten rid of a lot of stuff I really did not need.   I am planning a huge garage..well yard sale in a couple of months to get rid of more.  There was more stuff I did not really need or even use so why have it right?  I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  I think I will be able to start piecing together a craft space soon, maybe this week or weekend.  Christmas is getting closer and closer and I have yet to finish shopping because I have had all this moving business on the brain.  We got rid of the old tree so I found a really small one we are going to use this year.  At least we have a good place to put it (right in front of the big window by the fireplace).

So when I have everything done, I will do a video showing you my new space!  I can't wait to be able to sit in a comfortable space and craft my heart out!  Stay tuned!!!!

It's that time...again...7 years later.  Moving to downsize.  I have some medical problems that is preventing me from working a lot so I have to say goodbye to my "dream home" that we built 7 years ago.  I have enjoyed it alot especially because we had land and we were surrounded by woods.  You cannot even see your neighbors until winter time when all the leaves fell off the trees between the houses.  It is so quiet here. I sit on my swing on my front porch and listen to the birds, the russeling of the trees in the wind and watch a couple of squirrels play, jumping from tree to tree.  I could sit there for hours...but only in the cool air-winter time.  It was hard to sit out there when it was so hot but I really enjoyed it.

Our new place is not as "pretty" on the outside but the inside is okay.  Large living room and master bed.  Kitchen is small but I don't cook much anyway and it is outdated so maybe down the road there will be some remodeling?  The garage is enclosed but there is no heat or air in there so we will either put heat and air or maybe open it back up as a garage.  Not sure.  Those will be decisions for another road.

Packing is a nightmare though.  I hate it!  You just do not realize how much "junk" you have accumulated over time.  The last time we moved was the more "junk" to move.  This will be out 4th house and hopefully our last.  Yeah, that is what I said about my "dream home" 7 years ago.  You never know what will happen to change your life. I guess change is good huh?  We spent time fixing up the house, painting and whatnot.

Yeah, we had a good ol' time doing that...NOT!  My boys were the biggest help ever! They are great kids!  One will be getting married next year and moving out and the other is in college so he is home only ever once in awhile and during holidays.  Then after college he will be gone.  Empty nest syndrome?  I am feeling it now!

Stay tuned for I will be posting about my new craft room. I need time to get settled and fix it up the way I want it. I am hoping this (moving) will help me get organized. Ya think?

Follower Giveaway - Winner!!

I'm kind of disappointed in the response I got to my last post.  I have done this one time before just to see how many people actually read my blog posts.  I only had 4 people respond last time and this time...only 3.  I have 68 followers so I am not sure what's up with that.  You would think a giveaway would bring in all kinds of responses huh? 

Oh well...the good thing about it... the three that did respond have a better chance in winning eh?  Ok, now for the winner....

The winner is.....PATTY SUE 2!!  Congrats girl.  Please email me your addy and I will send out your goodies.  Thanks to all three of you for participating! 

You never know when there will be another one.

Scraproom Organization Tip #4 - Paper Scraps

I had a heck of a time trying to figure out what to do with my scraps.  The system I had before (in drawers) worked really good but I needed those drawers for other stuff.  So I decided to put the scraps in little project folders and store in my rolly cart thing-a-ma-jig.  See video to see what I mean.  :-)

Scraproom Organization Tip #3 - Paper Stacks

I have so many paper pads, I was trying to figure out the best way to store them.  I show 3 different ways to do this in my video.  These systems will have to do until we get moved and I can get better organized and have them all in one place. What cha think?

Happy Birthday Dad!

Celebrated my Dad's 68th birthday this past weekend. You would never know he was that old because he is young at heart.  Here is the card I made for him.  He is a gambler (mostly poker) so I thought this fit him to a T.
