Holy Crap! Only 64 Days to Christms!

I am having a small panic attack about that. I have not even started on any projects. Too much going on. Some you might know that I am now a Stampin Up demonstrator now. I had my first party this past weekend. Here are the projects that we made. The ladies seemed to like them.

They are made with all Stampin Up images and products. If you have any questions let me know! I had a good time Sunday. They were all very understanding and nice. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Again!

Hey I just wanted to say hello to you all. It is a crazy busy time right now so not a lot of time to post. I did over the summer get a macro lens for my camera. It is awsome. I have included a few pics I took with it. Love you all!

I got yelled at!

Okay I have slacked off. I did not think that anyone read this blog but apparently Cindy does. :) I am back just because Robb shook his finger at me am told me to update. The summer went by so fast I cannot believe that it is already September. We have been a few places this summer. We went o Vegas in June and just went to St Louis a few weekends ago to visit friends. We have a wedding this weekend and family reuion next. It is going to be a busy next few weeks. I have had just a little time to craft this summer. This is a card that I made for birthday Thank you cards. I thought that they turned out cute. As you all know I love penguins.
I really just keep forgetting to take pictures of my projects that I make before I send them. I have a few I will download soon and post up tomorrow. Missed you guys! More tomorrow.

Long time no talk!

Sorry that it has been so long since I have gotten to post. Things have just been so crazy busy lately. Finally life has slowed down. Bowling is over and Robb multiple nights of soccer is coming to an end. Things have been good here. We are enjoying some wonderful spring weather finally. Of course I have to suffer through allergy season but I think that it is well worth it.
Anyway, A few weeks ago Robb and I took a trip to Atlanta to see the Braves home opener. The weather was okay, Friday's game was rained out, Saturday it misted the entire game, but Sunday was beautiful. Sunny and not too hot. We had a great time. I was not able to bring the camera out until Sunday but I go some good shots. The first is the pitching coach Roger McDowell. I just love the way that he is leaning on the bat. Just makes me laugh. The next is one of my favorite players Jeff Francoeur hitting. The rest are just a few of the sites from Turner field.


Hey all i have been absent lately. I just wonder where the time goes. I will update with pics tonight when I get home. Hope everyone is doing well. LOVE YA!

Happy Easter!!

Hey hope that everyone is having a wonderful Easter! We spent the afternoon at Robb's parents house with all the kids. We had a easter egg hunt and a pizza. It was a fun time. We also celebrated Lilly's 5th birthday. I wanted to share with you the card I made her for her birthday. I used the chalkboard technique for the main design. It is where you stamp the design in white ink and use chalks to color lines. I liked the idea for a kids card and the cat design just I thought was fun. She loves animals too. Hope that you enjoy. Have a good one.

I bet he cannot do this twice....

The other night Robb was playing darts when I heard, "Maria get your camera." This is what I found. I am lucky to actually hit the board. I guess that we are lucky that one of us in this house is good at darts.

Another carfty Tuesday

I tried a different type of card this week. I made a trifold card. They are really versatile and can accommodate any theme. The first one is a birthday and the second is a easter card. I hope that you enjoy them and they give you a little bit of inspiration.

Brush with greatness

I almost forgot to share that coolest news. There is a radio station locally that I love. I am part of their loyal listener club. I regurally enter contests on there website. Well I entered one were I have the oppertunity to me the lead singer from the band Train, Pat Monahan. I won tickets! I took my good friend Mandy and we got to listen to an interview with him and then got to meet him. We each got an autographed poster and picture With him. Here is the picture. I liked the way it turned out.

Crafty Tuesday!

I altered this paper mache D for a swap. I was swapping easter baskets with a very nice lady from South Carolina. She made me the best basket! I hope that she likes hers. It was fun putting together a crafty easter goodie basket. Here is a picture of the entire basket. That is all that is happening here. Hope that everyone is well.

I finally made a card!

It has been so long since I actually made a card. I was inspired because one of my co-workers is in the hospital getting surgery. I made him this card. I hope that it makes him smile and feel a little better. Hope you enjoy.

Spring fever!

Can you believe that a week ago we had 7o degree weather. We were all cheering thinking that Spring had finally come. We had all the doors and windows open and were enjoying the fresh air. The cats were actually sharing the windows without fighting. It was a wonderful but were we in for a surprise. This past Saturday I woke up to this, 11 inches of snow. Can you believe this. Don't you just love the Ohio Valley. Well it all melted today but by Thursday it will 65 degrees. One day I will figure out this crazy weather. Hope it is better around there for you all.

I Think of You all Everyday....

I have not forgotten you. I have just had a lot going on in the last few weeks. I am just not feeling very creative lately. Work has just had me down and when I go home I just want to watch TV and sleep. I do have one picture to share. My Friend Eduardo & Michelle just welcomed there new baby boy, Aidan Mateo Newman. He is a cutie and so happy. Hope that you all are doing well. I will try to post more later.

Hello from_______!

Good morning all. I have just a little to share with you today. The card that I have pictured today is for a swap where we are suppose to make a card that represents what your state is all about. What is more important in the state of Kentucky then Horses and Louisville Slugger base ball bats. I would have put a tabacco plant but I just don't want to support that. :) I am sending this card off to Califorina. I hope that she likes it!

Crafty Tuesday!

It has been awhile since I have had something to share with you all. I finally remembered to take a picture of the items before I sent them out. I love to do swaps with my crafty friends over at paper crafts magazine website. This is for a valentine's day swap where I had to make at least 5 items and send them to my swap partner. I made her an explosion box, a set of cards, a tin of nuggetcandies, photo clip, jumbo paper clips and a magnet. I also threw in a little crafting goody. I hope that she likes it. I really had a good time making it. I love valentine's day it is such a fun holiday to celebrate those that you love in your life. Weather they be friends or family. I hope that you all have a great one!

Check this out

Over the weekend the new Smart Car dealership opened up here in Louisville. I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I have to say they are soooo cool. I totally want one. They are so fun. One the out side they look really small, but once you sit in it you will be totally amazed how much room there is. They also have crazy amounts of options, like sound systems and heated seats. There is even a convertible. We are considering getting one in the future. I think that it is the way to go. It is even better getting 41 mpg highway. To give you a true comparison on the size of this thing here is a picture of me next to it. I think that everyone should seriously look at them. Love you all!

Picture time

Hey everyone. I thought that I would share some photos from our New Years Eve party. We had a lot of fun. Beware there was a little bit of alcohol involved. :)

What is happening!?

I know that it has been a while. I have neglected you all. But I promise that I will never do it again. Nothing has really been going on here. Just work and really really cold weather. I cannot wait until spring. I hope that everyone had good holidays. It was nice to have 11 days off in a row. As good as it sounds it went by faster than you would expect and I did not get all the stuff done that I wanted to. I did however enjoy my time. As you can see in the picture below Spike and Luna enjoyed there days too. They truely love each other. I think that at least once a day I find them snuggled in some kind of pose. I am glad that have each other. Hope that everyone has a great day. I will try to update more tonight.

I am Back!

Hey all! I am so sorry that I have slacked for so long. I have just been too busy. The holidays were nuts and now I am trying to motivate myself to get back to my regular life. A few things have changed here as you can tell. I have a new look and I have added a link to my Amazon Wish list so if you all are ever wondering what to get me as a gift there is a place to go. I have a lot of pictures to share but they are all at home. I will post more later. Love you all!
