Mariah wasn't feeling too well on her birthday, so that's why she isn't giving me her best smile. She started a new medication for seizures the night before her birthday and it made her feel really loopy. I really hope that this new medication works better and she can become seizure free. This has been such a hard few months on her. Not knowing why she is having them and not knowing when she might have one. It's really hard for me to watch my child go through this. I just feel almost helpless. But, we go back to the neurologist on Monday and I am going to request an MRI. Please keep her in your prayers for some good news!
So that's all for today folks! Until next time we meet, Hugs & Happy Craftin'!

I am working on getting my daughter's room cleaned, painted, new flooring and decorated.........
to set up as my new stamp space!
Well, she's going to share her bedroom with me. She has moved into the dorms at Columbia College which is about 20 minutes away from home and took almost everything with her. She wanted to make it as homey as possible. Her room is pretty barren right now, only a bed and night side table, while I paint and install the laminate flooring. It will still be her room when she comes home on the weekends and over the holidays. She is such a sweet girl to allow me to take part of it over. For the past two years my craft area has been in the tiny little foyer in my house. I am excited to actually have a little more room to create in. I will post pics of before, during and after as soon as it's all done. I may need a little break for my knees to recover from laying that flooring, but I will post some new creations soon, too! Until then, wish me luck for a speedy room transformation!

I made this card for my Mom to give to Mariah for graduation. My babies are growing up! It's almost depressing! Amber got married last Friday and Mariah graduates on June 8th. I'll only have one baby left at home come fall. I have learned that I need to cherish every second, because they grow up and become their own "bosses". Sometimes I just wish that I could go back in time and enjoy them as babies again. But, alas, I can't so I will just enjoy them now as young adults. I guess now I can be their friend instead of mean ole mom! Except to Dakota, I'm still mean ole mom to him, lol!
Well that's it for me tonight! Hope everyone had a productive, fun weekend! Until next time, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!

This is the card that I made for my Sister-in-Law's birthday. I got the idea for this card from Angie and you can see her beautiful creations here. She is just so darn talented!
I started with the circle and stamped the lilacs from the retired set Blossoms Abound in Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Pretty in Pink on Whisper White cs. I also stamped the retired French Script background with Pixie Pink and Basic Brown and sponged the whole thing with Creamy Caramel. The lilac in the middle is stamped, embossed with Iridescent Ice EP and adhered with dimensionals. I also embossed the other lilacs. The dragonfly is from Organic Grace and stamped in Black Staz-on on Whisper White cs and colored in with SU! markers and also embossed. The card base is Kiwi Kiss. The organdy ribbon was distressed by zappin' it with the heat gun until it started to curl up. You have to be careful with that technique or you'll burn the ribbon. This I know from experience! I cut a small slit in the top crease fold of the card stock and slipped the ribbon through and then tied it around the card. The only thing I don't like about that is that the ribbon is visible from inside the card, but oh well! I hope she likes the card and the gift from the last post. I'm almost sure she will!
Today, I spent making a flower arrangement for my daughter's wedding. As soon as the final touches are done, I'll take some pics and share! I'm also making the bouquet which I'm terrified to make! Amber is slightly picky, but is having a hard time really making a decision on what she wants. She wants sea shells in it, because we are going with a casual elegant beach theme, but she also wants real flowers in it, so I'm trying to come up with something that she'll love. I'll also share that as soon as it's finalized. Last night I stamped the tags for the wedding favors. I bought a bunch of little glass bottles with corks and we will make a little note to slip inside each one to create a "message in a bottle". I've come up with a lot of little things for the wedding and reception, just have to get it all done! I'm getting nervous, but I know everything will come together.
Until next time, Hugs and Happy Craftin'!

Ok, so the pics didn't turn out great, but I'm posting this one anyway.
I love the new Animal Crackers set! All the little critters are adorable, but the giraffe is my favorite!
The card base is Certainly Celery with a piece of the FREE Sale-a-Bration dp called Delicate Dots layered on top. The image is stamped on Very Vanilla with Black Stazon and colored in with markers and then layered on a piece of Bashful Blue cs that was punched on one side with the scallop punch and then pierced each scallop. The ribbon is also from the FREE Sale-a-Bration ribbon bundle. Don't you just love FREE! The embellishment is the same dp cut out using the Buttons Sixxix with two of them layered and then I added a piece of the Martha Stewart colored baking twine that I bought months ago and then never used. Why do I do that? I guess that it's safe to say that I am a hoarder! lol.
So there is the first card that I made with all my new SU! goodies! Can't wait to show you the next one, as long as the new camera cooperates this time! Until then, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!

I saw this on Patty's blog and just had to make one! She is a SU! Demonstrator who has the most awesome ideas! Go check her out! Anyway, my daughter Mariah is a real girlie girl and I knew she would love this. And I was right! I started with a 4x4 inch coaster and ran it through the Cuttlebug with a big circle die cut, then covered it on both sides with some NEW SU! DP called Raspberry Tart. The initial is Letterpress Alphabet stamped in Pixie Pink. That and the flowery paper layer are cut out with a Spell Binders Scalloped die cuts. The whole thing front and back is then covered with Iredescent Ice EP and then Clear EP. The Jumbo Eyelet was added, along with a metal office binder ring. I tied two pieces of ribbon around the ring. One is a piece of bright pink velvet ribbon that I got from Taylored Expressions online store. Love it!!! The other is a piece of pink with green stitching ribbon that I have had for a long time. I love my ribbon and almost can't get enough of it!!! Doesn't matter what company either, I love'm all! So this is the Purse Tag in action so to speak. Isn't it cute?!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time, Hugs and Happy Craftin'!

This ornament is a coaster covered with a piece of DP from Ancestry.com that I got from my LSS. And, yes, you have seen it before. I am using up my scraps! I adhered the dp and the image using Mod Podge and then covered the whole thing with Iridescent Ice ep. The flowers are small paper flowers that are also covered in Iridescent Ice ep with a Ice Brad for the center and adhered with a large glue dot. The "love you" is a rub-on from the Greatest Moments set. The large eyelets were also embossed with the same ep and the ribbon was distressed by heating with the heat gun. I have a few more vintage Valentine images that I want to make more ornaments with and then I will show you my Season Tree all dolled up for Valentine's Day!
Until next time, Hugs and Happy Craftin'!
