What a nice Friday. I had to work today…it was a long day, but I got lots of stuff done. Afterwards, Jerms and I dropped the boys off at Pams (mother in law) house for a few hours and we had a nice date night. We didn’t do anything super crazy, but dinner with no kids is always AMAZING! Jerms and I always have a fun time together.
Today is Michelle (my step-mom) birthday. I made her a card a few days ago, but was unable to share. I didn’t want her to see it on the blog before the big day! She loves to quilt, so I tried my hand at a quilt inspired card. I don’t love the way it turned out, but I learned a lot from it.
Well folks…I am really tired. I spent too much time on Pinterest and not enough time blogging tonight. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get a nice good post in for ya. Or maybe I won’t. I guess you will see tomorrow!
I didn’t blog yesterday. Did anyone notice? By the time I remembered, I was tucked into bed about to doze off. I didn’t have anything important to write about anyway. Not that I ever do, but hey…I promise I’d write, so that’s what I’m doing.
I did a lot of cleaning today. Nothing better than putting a new vacuum bag in and just going crazy. The kids asked at least 4 times “Are you done yet?” No way!!! I’m vacuuming everything…can’t you see that!? I love a clean house and fresh Scentsy. I also had a chance to get some card making in. I was having a little trouble figuring out what to do today. I knew I needed to make a few cards, but nothing was really jumping out at me. I started this card and ended up taking a break half way. I just wasn’t feeling it. Sometimes, I just have to walk away for a few hours (or even the night) and come back to it.
This is what I ended up with.
This card took way to long to make. It’s like I was in slow motion. I have 3 other cards that I need to work on this week. I’m hoping I’ll have some free time tomorrow to get those started. I need another birthday and 2 get well cards. Wish me luck! Jerms is off tomorrow, so we should have plenty of time to create. His desk is in the same room as my crafts, so as I’m crafting he does his drawing/painting. It’s been really nice to have that time together.
I’m making an apple cake tomorrow. Jerms loves it. I think I’ll share the recipe with you tomorrow night. It’s super easy and you probably already have everything to make it. Have a great Monday!
Hello! I’m up late crafting and thought I’d go ahead and get my blog in before I start on something else. I made this card for my little sister who had surgery on her ear last Thursday. Her favorite color is yellow, so I hope she enjoys all the bright colors. I had fun with this one. A little too much fun, because I ended up doing it twice! I messed up on the first one and had to start over. I tried to hide my mistake, but there was no way to make it look the way I imagined without just starting fresh. I ended up switching a few things the second time around and it turned out better than I had originally planned, so I was pleased.
Here’s a picture of the final product.
I really like it. This is my first card I tried the stitching on. Now that I finally have a space to craft, I can get my sewing machine out no problem!! Don’t be surprised if I go stitch overload….I’ll try to keep it to a minimum. 😉
I’m off to do a little more crafting before bed.
Enjoy your Sunday! It’s almost Halloween!!

Hello readers. I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday as much as we did. It was HOT in Oklahoma today. I’m not sure what the actual temperature was, but at one point it said 111 in the minivan.
What do you do on a hot day? Swim!! Yes, we went swimming and it was fabulous. I wanted to stay in that pool forever! We had a great time swimming. Summer is almost over and I’m so glad we got a good swim in…just incase we don’t get another 100 degree day!
Here’s a picture from today!
I can’t say it enough…We had so much fun swimming today!
After swimming we did all the other regular day stuff. Eat…went for our walk…baths…blah blah blah. But, before bed we played a few hands of cards and Jerms made some Hawaiian salsa! YUM! We played UNO and slap jacks. We were all cracking up while playing slap jacks. The boys are getting so big. It makes me so sad, but I know it’s a part of life. 😉
This is a typical silly picture of Bonus. Always the life of the party!
Marley wants to watch a scary movie tonight. We’ve got the boys in bed and we’re off to watch Signs. Ever seen it? Great movie!!!
See you tomorrow!
Heyyyy! Happy Tuesday everyone! I made a few cards this evening and wanted to share them with you.
I won’t say who they are for. Don’t want to ruin the surprise for anyone. 🙂
My moms birthday is Thursday, so I need to get started on a card for her tomorrow.
We’re about to do some re-decorating! Our guest room rarely has guests in it, so we are making that room into my craft room. We will probably start in the next few weeks! I am so excited. I need a space to have all my stuff out. It’ll be nice to shut the door and not see the mess if I’m in the middle of a project. I’ve been looking at different paint colors…curtains…crafting tables. I want it all!! Luckily my husband is pretty handy at building stuff. That should save us some money here and there. I really need to get my stuff organized, so maybe he can build me some shelves and bins. Yay! I can’t wait!
Hope you liked my cards. It’s not to late, so I’m going to try to get some work done and then I’m off to bed.
Enjoy your Wednesday tomorrow.
