A lotta Cards

Posted by on Feb 23, 2010 in Cards, Crafting, Cricut | 2 comments

As you all know, I am very good at spending money on scrapbooking things.  For awhile, it was all spent w/ purpose–but, then as time got short–I only made time for the shopping part, and not the scrapping part. So, now I have a very full room of expensive toys and have just recently started to get back into the groove of crafting and scrapping with it all.  Of course, this does not mean I will stop shopping– (Sorry, Kyle), but it does mean there will once again be purpose to my Hobby Lobby spending sprees. Well, as I have eased myself back into things– I have making cards and birthday decorations.  Easy projects with quick ending times.  I designed Jaxen’s birthday banners, made his spaceship, treat bags, name tags, etc. But, yesterday with no birthdays in the near...

It was Jaxen’s 3rd Birthday–and we were having a Party.  He wanted a Buzz Lightyear Party, and naturally– I thought I would make the cake.  I started doing online searches for cool cakes, and found a million and one rocket ships–but, I just wasn’t impressed.

Then, the unspeakable happened–everyone in our household came down with a nasty stomach virus the week of the party–and with much hesitation, I started to call the bakeries.  Unfortunatley, there were no bakeries with, “Toy Story,” themed cakes.  They offered to print...

Name Change

Posted by on Feb 3, 2010 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I wanted to get everyone prepared for something exciting!! I will be moving my Creative Blog to it’s own website, within the next week or so.  I am excited for the change, but nervous about the transition.  With this blogger, it is pretty easy to blog without having to think about it too much.  However, on my own website- I won’t have these handy dandy boxes to fill in, and hit publish. I will also need to design my page, and I am on the lookout for some cute and funky artwork– So bear with me, during this transition time–and expect more creative posts–along with video how-to posts! Most how-to posts will be on crafting, instead of baking/cooking.  But, I will still blog about the occasional edible project.  3 cheers to the new website~  name will be announced...
