First things first–the WINNER of the WINTER FUN stamp set from FRIDAY is…. Connie, who said: Once again I ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over the cards/scrapbook pages. They are MORE than AWESOME! Favorite winter memory? Hubby making ‘snow’ ice cream….:O) Congratulations Connie!! Just send an email to with your address so I can get those to you!! Now onto our project for today!

I’m officially a Soccer Mom

Posted by on Aug 28, 2010 in Crafting, Cricut, Gift ideas, Vinyl | 20 comments

Tomorrow is my daughter’s very first Soccer game– She has had 2 practices, and quite frankly has been more interested in chasing butterflies and playing with her pigtails than getting in there to kick the ball.  But, I am okay with that– it just makes me smile! But since tomorrow is her first game and I want to show her as much support and love as possible– I decided to do some crafting! Yep– I made a shirt to let everyone know that I was the mom of the butterfly-chasing, daydreaming, cloud-watching, pig-tail playing girl 10 feet away from the ball! Because to me–it’s what makes her, her–and I love her for every bit of it! So, I decided to decorate a shirt, (in the same color as her team) with  the Iron-On Vinyl I won from the Creating...

Happy Saturday! Lot of good things going on– First of all, I wanted to tell all of you about my most EXCITING news–I won the Limited Edition Workbox from The Original Scrapbox over at Rachelle’s Writing Spot!    I am so happy, because if you remember–our basement flooded this year–and I had to move my scrap area into our Dining Room.  So, this workbox will be so nice to organize my scrap goodies in a “hidden” type of way!!   I have chosen the Black Oak–and I should be getting it in mid-September. To celebrate I did a little coffee shopping with my girls last night–and found some great deals!!  Then, we got to do a little crafting last night, while the men played Wii!  We even videoed our shopping trip for you all–so you could go “with” us! (yes,...
