Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas everyone!  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.  I hope everyone has something wonderful planned for the holidays.  I didn't get to step into my craft room at all this weekend except to clean it since I'm hosting Christmas this year!  I made this card about a week ago.
This cutie is from Stamp Fairy who is having a 50% off sale right now!  I had to ask Santa for a new printer for Christmas so I'm hoping it is under the tree tomorrow!!  Have a wonderful day.

Something new

So I've always loved paper piecing projects but couldn't understand how people were so good with all that cutting - I usually ended up cutting myself more than the paper.  So  recently I've been trying cutting files using the Silhouette Cameo and although I'm really slow at it I must say I enjoy putting all these little tiny pieces together!  My inspiration has been Patty from Patty's Crafty Spot.  Patty and I met while working in the same industry (she worked for an auto parts store and I worked for the districutor) and reconnected at a Copic class we took from Suzanne Dean at The Inspiration Station.  Patty does amazing work both paper piecing and tear bears and she's been patient with all my million questions!!

So this is one of the first project I'm comfortable sharing.
This cutie is from Kristi W. Designs that I got through Kadoodle Bug Designs.  I struggled with picture taking today, tried outside, inside, by the window, flash, no flash, OTT light, no light.  Ugh is just wasn't working well today.  I've had a nice relaxing day today, me and the pup have watched football all afternoon.  I did manage to actually get some laundry done.  Happy Sunday everyone!

Sad news...

The Stamping Boutique is closing!  Myself and the other members of the Design Team are broken hearted but certainly understand.  The store will be closing as of December 31st so head over and grab Tracey's gorgeous artwork while you can. Tracey is so talented and generous I'm going to miss the TSB family so much!

Christmas Card

I know this is a Crissy Armstrong image I think I got it through Whimsy Stamps. 
Colored with Copics, I strung the little lights on some twine and then glued the twine down.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I am so looking forward to this weekend to relax (hopefully)!!

December Already?

Holy cow time is flying right by.  Last weekend was crazy went to NYC again for my annual trip with my BFF Patti.  We always do one thing we've never done before each time we go, this time we went to the NYC Public Library and Bryant Park.  The library was amazing, absolutely gorgeous.  We had a great day of wandering, shopping and eating!  Went to our beloved Carmine's and had an amazing meal.  This weekend will be much quieter and I can't wait I haven't seen the inside of my craft room for two weeks and I'm starting to go a little crazy!  Here is my card for the Stamping Boutique's latest challenge "Holiday Cards"
Come play along with us!
