OK, my craziness is gone!

Hi All! Sorry I have been MIA for a few days...Work has been INSANE! I went back on Wednesday from my vacation of nothing, and have YET to have a day off; at least not til this need Thursday to get here REAL QUICK!

I made that card above for my friends, friends nephew. He turned 3 and he was having a Cars Birthday party. I knew I had that Cars Cricut Cartridge just itching to be used!! I think he turned out pretty good...well, with the exception of me using 2 different color yellows for the 95 in his headlights! Oh well, I didn't notice til I glued the whole thing down!

So, some fun news:

Happy Halloween Wreath!

So, working on some Halloween stuff right now! I wanted to make one of these wreaths ever since I saw my first one on You Tube (cant remember who on You Tube for the life of me was a few months back!)! Well, I was in AC Moore about 2 weeks ago and saw that Tim Holt made an extended die for my Big Shot that made the paper rosette's. You know what I had to do, right? You guessed it! Pulled out my trusted 40% off ANY scrapbook purchase and I got that die for $14.99! Yeeeaaa!!! So, I also used a pack of patterned paper that I got from Joanne's that has Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas paper in it. As a matter of fact, its the same paper I made my Mini Album out of! So, why wait? Wanna see it???
Hope you all like it!!! Have a good day :)

Halloween Mini Album using K & Company Embelishments

Well, first day back to work after a LONG vacation for me! I actually hope this post works out, cause I am trying to schedule it for Wednesday! Anyway, just taking a quick minute to post a quick picture of a Halloween Mini Album I made. I used a Sizzix Die (mini album) and K&Company Embellishments. It was SUPER EASY! Unfortunately, I cannot tell you where the paper is from, because I cant find the big book I got it out of! I have had the paper picked out for WEEKS now, but haven't had the time to make this! I hope you all enjoy it!!

My Baby's First Day of 1st Grade!

Aww! My baby's not a baby anymore :( WAAAAA! Peanut had his 1st day of first grade! I cant believe it happened that quick!!! I mean, I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday, and now 1st grade? Where does time go?

Well, in true 1st day of school fashion, I made him his pancakes (but not Mickey pancakes, couldn't find my mold!)
And here is my little stud waiting in line with his little friends!!!
And here he is going into class now!!!

I hope he has a great first day! And I hope all the other little ones going to their first day today have a wonderful day also!

Long and BUSY day today :)

Hellooooooo! What a LONG DAY today was! Its the end of summer! School starts for the kids in our town tomorrow! I'm not going to lie, Im going to be kinda bummed that my little dude wont be off with us on Monday's anymore until next summer :( AND not to mention that he goes into 1st grade tomorrow! WAAAAHHHH! Ummmm, can someone tell me who knocked me out for 6 years, cause last I remember, I was just finding out I was preggers, and now my little guy is 6 and a 1st grader! Oh, mommy can use a good cry tonight!

So, we had a meeting with another client today! Yahoo! FINGERS crossed she books us! She will let us know by tomorrow! After our meeting we spent a good hour and a half in Michaels looking at EVERYTHING! We have a BIG craft show in October, so we are trying to get some of our personalized items made so we can show off our talents! After that, it was back to my craft room so we could get our tablecloth done for our bridal show!

Its only an overlay for the actual white tablecloth, but here is a picture:

To be honest, it looks ALOT better in person...I must not of had this picture straight when I took the picture. I think its ADORABLE, but I would LOVE some honest opinions!! And just for your opinions, I can clue you all into a little secret that you may or may not know...are you ready????? Well.....

The J, C, and C from the above picture were ALL cut on my Cricut!!! Did you know you could cut fabric with our Cricut??? I knew I could, be being honest, I dont think I trusted it! I found an AWESOME way to cut without your fabric moving on your mat! You only need blue painters tape! After you iron on your webbing, you need to adhere it to your mat. I did the best I could to make it stick, then I used blue painters tape along ALL the edges! It worked PERFECTLY!!!

After that, I had to make a gift for my son's teacher for tomorrow. Well, I saw a You Tube video where Sarah at  "Pink Cricut" is making a crayon wreath for her child for school! I thought it would be a GREAT gift to give to his teacher, so I went to town! Here is a quick picture!
The ONLY thing I wish I would have done with this is covered the ring like she did. I was hoping it would have been covered with all the crayons, and even the cut outs, however, that was a no go. But, I think regardless of it not being painted that it turned out pretty good! Info for wreath is as follows:

Locker Room Cricut cartridge
54 Crayons
Circle ( i cut mine on my cricut at 7 inches, and did a 5 inch one on the inside of the circle from the Gypsy to make it not be so thick!)
Hot Glue Gun

Well, its past midnight here and I need to get my little guy up for school in 6 hours! I need to make my famous Mickey Pancakes since school is back on :)

Nighty Night everyone!

My heart is so full!

I just got done viewing all the awesome banners for the "Labor Of Love Halloween Blog Hop" for the special needs children in PSCU in Bucks County Pa. Not sure if you all know, but my son was not only born 7 weeks early (and was in NICU for 21 days), but he is also Autistic. He is such a wonderful little boy! I always say he is my angel that I waited so long for! And when I heard that there was a Blog Hop for other special needs children, I knew I had to go through every one of them! Please, if you can, go to it! It starts at and there are 19 blogs total that are included! It goes on until Monday. I encourage you all to go and visit! I am also asking that maybe you can even make a special Halloween Card that you can post at and then send to Madison because she will be sending them on to the children at the PSCU! Their goal is to have every child receive a card! PLEASE DON'T MAKE IT SCARY!!! Also, please let them know that I sent you over to view the blog!!!

With that all being said, I would love to host a blog hop for the children at Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania. That is where my son went for his therapy and my brother in law was also there for quite sometime when he was younger because he had Leukemia. He is a SURVIVOR!!! I would LOVE for the Pediatric Cancer Unit to get FLOODED with cards for Halloween and then we can do another blog hop for Christmas!!! If you are interested, please post a comment on my blog below! Please, PLEASE ask your friends to become a follower of mine so they can also participate in this blog hop!!!

OK, after all that is said, I will leave you with a picture of a card that I made today before I went through the blog. I will be making my halloween cards for the blog next!!!

Birthday Card!

One more quick card to post..I hope I didn't post this in my earlier post, but if I did, I guess I am doing it again! LOL! Hope you like it!
Its from the Birthday Bash cartridge! I am entering this into the CCC this week! Thanks for looking :)

Halloween Pails

Wow! Had SUCH a busy crafting day! Got LOTS accomplished! Here is just a quick peak at what was created today :)

These were super easy to make!! I used Mini Monsters for all of the images. I used my tape gun to get them to start to stick, then I used Mod Podge (glossy) all over the images to make them stay on for sure! I got the pails at Target in the bargain section the other day! Perfect Halloween colors!! Mooooaaaahhhh!

Oh, and PS....if anyone can help me figure out why my videos are too large to post, I would appreciate it! I don't know how to make them smaller!!!!

Business, Hurricane Irene, & Things I've learned with my Gypsy!

Hello out there! I am SO bad with keeping up with my blog! I wish I had an app on my phone that would allow me to just type my heart out and get it into my blog because finding time in front on my computer just AINT HAPPENING ENOUGH!

So, let me first ask... is everyone is ok after Hurricane Irene? We got smacked around pretty good here. I was more concerned with the 3 hours of tornado watches that kept happening on Saturday night. I'm telling you, when I hear them say that my county was under the watch and to get to shelter immediately, I almost died! I was SO afride! But, thankfully we were all just fine! I hope everyone of you were safe and sound also!

Business is going pretty steady so far! Its A LOT of work to try to start up a business! But, I think we are doing it the right way, and really trying to get our name out there! Please, if any of you can, pass my blog on to a friend, and ask them to pass me on to another friend! We are really trying to get our name out there!!!! Its all work of mouth right now, and hopefully someday, people will just think of us when they need party items and planning!

So, have any of you wanted to know some in's and out's our your Gypsy? I know I love to read my instruction books as soon as I get a new item so I know the in's and out's of whatever it is that I bought. Well, the problem with my Gypsy was that I didnt get a manual. It said it was online. Seriously, who can read a instruction book online...anyone???? I know I cant! Well, thats where I decided to try to figure some things out on my own! Like for starters, did you know that you can hide contour, make an easel card, make any shape card that you have on your Gypsy...? I know I didnt! I happen to stumble upon making my word book a few weeks back, but I wanted to get more use out of it! I will be attaching my video of the items I found on my blog later today. I am still trying to figure out how to make it not be a HUGE file! lol!

For now, please enjoy some cards that I recently made with the Gypsy!

This a CASE of a card I saw online! I wanted to try it out in pink because my partner is pregnant and we just found out she having a girl! YEA! Used New Arrival.

Bride Favor boxes are for a shower that I have to do on Sunday! The bride LOVES pink! Used Tie the Knot Cartridge!

Happy Birthday Card for my brother in law' girlfriend! Used Birthday Bash!

My brothers birthday present! We call him Farmer Bill now because he is so in love with his garden! lol! I used Freshly Picked for this!

Can't remember if I posted this card on here! I had to make 60 of these for a sweet 16 party Alice in Wonderland themed party! The client LOVED them! I used Disney Classics, Nifty Fifties, and Indie Art.

Ok! I hope this was an informative post! LOL! I just wanted to touch base with you all cause I miss you guys!!!
