God, I just LOVE Tuesday Morning...My haul pics!!

Ok, let me first start out by saying...."WHY THE HECK HAVE I NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE????" and also "Thank you hubby for patiently waiting an hour for me while I stare off into the mounds AND mounds of paper and embellishment awesomeness!". Not even sure if AWESOMENESS is a word, but that is the only thing I can think of to describe that place!!! It was the best stuff I have found in a really long time!!!!

Just look at all the fantastic stuff I got!!!

Thanks so much for looking, and thanks for following! Please don't forget that I have a contest going on to help my partners and I get some business!!! Show us some love! Check out and also, become a follower of my blog!!!

The NEWEST addition to my craft room :) And future addition to be deliever next week!

Well, I finally got another addition to my craft room...A Singer Pixie Plus Sewing Machine! And best of all, its purple and white AND its tiny enough to store in my little bit of supply area that I have left!! Yea!!! I did originally get a White Sew E-Z Sewing Machine from Joanne's the other night, but that thing was a PIECE OF JUNK! I took it back tonight, and spent the few extra dollars on the Pixie Plus! I have already experimented with it, and I think I know enough about it to incorporate it into a project! I can't wait!!!! Here's some pictures of my new little bundle of joy! lol!

I also got a used Zutter Dreamkuts off of Ebay! I think I got a good price on it!! Cant wait for it to come!!! Now, I only need my Bind It All, Silhouette Cameo (gotta wait til fall for it!!), Cricut Mini, and Cricut Expression 2 and I will have my crafting electronics done!!

Ok all, time for nighty night with my bub! He leaves for the Jersey Shore tomorrow with my in-laws! Waaaaa! I'm gonna miss him SOOOO much! Expect TONS of projects next week! It takes my mind off missing him ;)

Playing with Kusudama Paper Flowers!

Ok, so let me just say HOW EASY this was....well, once you pay attention to the directions, lol! I had seen the Kusudama ball on a random blog one day, and I said " I NEED TO DO THAT"!!! So, I found out what it was called, and I found a tutorial about it! But, I will say, that quick I forgot about it! Then, the other night, I saw on My Pink Stamper, they showed a tutorial about it! I knew it was a sign to try it out! So, here they are...Keep in mind, the big one is made the wrong way, but I still like how it turned out!!! Pretty cool!!! Enjoy!

(This one below first is the one made the wrong


Whoooo Hooooooo! Starting the day off right ;)

Hey All!!

I just stopped in real quick to share some EXCITING NEWS before work today....So, I checked in on Facebook and Do It Yourself Crafts blog because I entered to Win a CE2. Well, I entered to win a subscription to Cricut Magazine the other day too, and of coarse didnt expect to win ANYTHING, and before you get all excited, I didnt win a CE2, but I did win a FREE 6 month subscription to Cricut Magazine!! I NEVER WIN ANYTHING (<----- screaming this in my house)!!! THAT MADE MY DAY!!! Especially after the week I had!!!! I was so excited, I called the hubby at work, BUT his phone isnt on, so I thought, who else would enjoy my excited with me...MY BLOGGIE FRIENDS!!!

What an AWFUL day ;(

So, I wake up pretty excited today...turns out we got our first lead last night for our new business! Yea!!! I couldn't wait to get to work to talk to my sister in law about it! AND, not to mention I was VERY excited to have off tomorrow so I could watch my little guy at soccer camp! So, anyway, I'm leaving my house and I go to get into my car, and I see all this black stuff...kinda looked like a BUNCH of CD's blew up...I couldn't figure out what it was, but I opened my back car door and it was everywhere! So, I close the back door, and then I hear the sound of breaking glass! Turns out, someone decided to smash in my back windshield!

WHO DOES THAT??? Apparently, it made the news in PA and NJ because these awful people decided to go and vandalize 10 other cars in 3 other towns! So, I had to use my day off tomorrow for today, and poor booger didn't get to go to soccer camp today! AND, I waited home ALL DAY LONG for the Windshield repair people, only to show up at 3:30 during a torrential down poor. Well, I don't have a garage or a carport, so looks like I waited for NOTHING today....Well, maybe not nothing...I did get a card kicked out! Wanna see it....?

Everything I used was Stampin' Up except for the pearls...they are Recollections.
