BWell Have I been Having Fun with my "BIG SHOT"
 I saw this very cool Take Out Box Tutorial by Dawn Olchefske.
So I really had nothing to put in them as of yet, But they sure are cute.

I used white  light cardboard for the boxes, I think they came from the inside of nylon a.k.a. pantyhose packets. I knew one day they would come in handy.
I am also loving this new Mambo Melon.
So here is my version of QUICK Take-Out 

Materials Used:
SU! Stamp Set: Fabulous Florets
SU! Card Stock: Whisper White
Ink Pads: Melon Mambo
SU! Ribbon: 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon 
Accessories:Stampin Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
and Paper Snips

A Newfound LOVE has me forgetting My Beloved

I am Normally a sane person, But yesterday I found myself pacing back and forth from the front door and my computer. My Stampin Up! order was due to arrive and of course my delivery was at the end of the day.
 I finally heard the glorious sound of the door sliding on that brown machine of dreams and woke up from my fog and told,
Master "D" "Go! Hurry! Go get my boxes!" 
Master "D" being the almost 14 year old that he is at a snail pace walked outside stopped halfway there,
turns around and says"Mom there are delivering stuff next door"
I could hear myself screaming Noooooo.
My order is supposed to be on that truck. 
So as soon as those words left my mouth that beautiful angel adorned in brown came around the corner with 2 SU! boxes and all hope in mankind had been restored.
Master "D" accepted the trade off and I was so gitty I could barely contain myself.
So Master "D" placed my boxes down and waited to see what all the theatrics was about.
I began to check my inventory and honest I am not sure who was more excited,

My 2 year old with all the boxes or Me when
I pulled my "BIG SHOT" out 

I am in Love, now I have to admit I do still really Love My Cricut and was on the fence for quite some time about the Big Shot,but signing up for SU! again just pushed me right over and 
I had to finally check it out myself.
 First off the texture plates are AMAZING and are fairly inexpensive and I was so happy that I had the checklist on pg. 212 of the SU! IBC so that I purchased what I needed to get started.
I quickly grabbed my basket of scraps and began on my journey of creativity
and I now find myself truly in Love with this Machine.
Seriously it even had my 2 year old saying "turn it mama turn it." LOL
He is so stinking cute while the big shot was not being used he put his own paper in and cranked it and was so excited. 
I had to finally put him to bed so I could get some time alone with it. :)
So I just wanted to take a few minutes and check in and I will post some of my projects soon
as for now my
"Big Shot" and I need a little alone time.
Happy Stamping,

Finally A Card

So today I woke up motivated and ready to get some card making done and after I got some ideas from
I set off on my journey and as I began I found it challenging to create new cards when,
I am limited in supplies
.(That's what I get for ordering like I was going to be a hobby demonstrator rather than making it
So here is my first Sample,

The Beginning

It's funny to me that you can get so excited about something and always with good intentions plan on doing things that NEVER get done. So for me this is how my beginning begins. If your like me you think of yourself as Crafty and get yourself into everything and before you know it you have dabbled into every craft and Jo-Ann and Michael are no longer just names but have become your alter of worship on Sunday when the new sales begin.
So I have CHALLENGED myself to use all of my Craft stuff and make time for it so it doesn't sit around and collect dust. So that being said my first challenge is to use all the yarn I have accumulated.

As of today I have made 4 bags 
 2 Blankets

and a mocksweater and only more to follow....

My second and biggest challenge thus far has been to rejoin the world of Stampin Up!
I was a demonstrator before and for me it was more a hobby than a business. So this time around I am doing things a little different and we shall see how my journey unfolds.
