I feel better. We actually made a trip to the doctor late last night, but fortunately I got some meds, and I am doing better. Pretty much took the day to rest. Glad that the kids could help out with things...guess that means they are all getting so big now :(

Haven't crafted in a few days. But I have this card I made a little bit ago. I heat embossed the flowers and the sentiment. I kind of liked how the background turned out :) All stamps are from Papertrey.

Thanks for stopping by!! I have some more rest to catch up on. I hope your week has started out a little bit calmer than mine :)

just a little.

We got some snow this morning. I think it actually snowed for about 15 minutes :) That was it, though. Not even raining or anything now. But the kids were still excited to see some snow :)

I've spent some time stamping this last week. Not as much as I'd like, but still some. And Tomio got my shelves up in my stamping room(!), I want to spend even more time there :) It is finally coming together I think. I love getting it all set up and organized.
Anyway, here is a card I made. Not sure how I feel about it honestly. I little too many patterns for me, but I decided to keep it anyway. I do like the colors :)

Thanks for stopping by!! We are about to go out to eat :) yay:)

I'm not sure...

where the weekend went?!?! It barely feels like we even had one.  I guess it's time to get back work. I'm not ready, but I'll just pretend I am :)

A bright card. Nice and cheery :) I love butterflies. These are from Sweet&Sassy stamps. They have matching dies too.

Okay--I'm off to get started on "my week". Hope you enjoyed your weekend!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm lucky....

enough to have stamping/scrapping room in our house here. When I found out we had to move, that was one of the things I thought might not get to have. So I am very thankful to still have one :) It's not the same as my old one though, so I am still working on it. It's coming along, though :) I spent some more time in there today, and had lots of fun :) Miss Emma even joined me and colored in a bunch stamps while I made cards.

Here is a card I made. I love the circle stamp set I used for the border. Really is so fun to use. I also really like the look of red and kraft together. (Confession--this is actually the second time I made this card. I completely finished it once, and flipped over the front panel to put adhesive on it....only there was ink left on my desk I got a huge ink spot on the front :( So I made the whole front panel again. Please tell I'm not the only one who has done that *~*)

Thanks for stopping by again today! Hope you are staying warm. While I kept hearing how cold it would be here in Kumamoto the winter has been surprisingly mild so far. yay:)

I guess it was little bit longer between posts than I hoped *~*. I'm still trying to get back in to the swing of things after the new year. Is it only me that takes this long??? I did manage to get the boys to the dentist though. No cavities~yay! But it looks like at least 3 out of 4 kids will need braces...we'll have to see how that works out. Hoping to make it in for some consults this week.
I have gotten a little stamping done though :) Really does make me happy.

I like how this one turned out. I feel like it has the right balance of simple, but not too plain. (does that make sense? lol) I really like the aqua and red combo too. I think all products I used here are from Papertrey.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having an awesome day :)

first post!

Of the new year :) Sorry it has been so long. We had 14 people at our house for last 10 days. It was definitely crazy :) The kids had such a blast playing with their cousins all during the holidays. I actually just got my Christmas decorations taken down last night. I think that is the first time I have left them up past the new year.

Anyway, it's a new year. Hoping to accomplish a few things.

I didn't make one thing over the holiday, but I have this card from before. I love this butterfly and use it often. It is from Clear Dollar stamps. Unfortunately, I think they are only making digital stamps now :(

Thanks for stopping by today!! I'm hoping to slowly get back into the swing of everyday things :)
