Back to school...

Hi Everyone,
I have been such a very bad blogger this summer. I need to get back in the groove. The problem is I can't seem to get myself up early enough these days. I used to get up a 1/2 hour earlier which would then give me 1/2 hour to write up my blog post before it was time to wake the troops (well Ethan really). Maybe it's time to start posting in the evenings again...Like while Ethan is doing homework.

Here are some photos of Ethan's first day of school. I can't believe he's in 5th grade already.

How fast time is going.
I'm really trying to get caught up on Project Life this week and weekend so that I can really get into a new routine with it and not let myself get behind again. Right now I'm 3 weeks behind.

I am going to skip Stampin' on Friday this week as we are just getting back into the back to school groove. Next week I will try and get back into my old blogging/crafting routine.

Have a great day everyone,
Hugs and happy crafting.

Project Life 2012 Update (Weeks 25-26)

Hi Everyone,
I'm back with another Project Life Update. I actually have three videos ready to share but I'll spread them out since I know not all of you are interested in Project Life...I'm back in my love it phase and worked on week 30 this past weekend.

It's back to school for Ethan this week. Wednesday he's starting 5th grade :) He's a little nervous about who his teacher will be, but not as bad as last year when it was almost a whole week of not being able to sleep because he was so nervous.

Have a great day everyone.
Hugs and happy crafting,

Stampin' on Friday (8/24/12) Stamp/Ink Pad Storage Tips

Hi Everyone,
Today's video is a quick video on how I store and organize my ink pads.

Another great solution if you can find one at a local Salvation Army is using a cassette holder. I'm told they work wonderfully as well.

I use this ink pad holder from www.organizemore.com

Have a great day everyone,

Craft Room Tour

Hi Everyone,
Happy Friday, I'm so excited to share with you my finished craft room. I love love love how it came out and there is so much more space in here than there was before. I can't wait to get crafting. Ethan heads back to school on Aug 29th and I traditionally take that day off of work so I can take him to school and pick him up. In between it's a craft day for me and I plan on lots and lots of crafty time.

On to my craft room tour.

Have a great Friday,

Easel Card

Hi Everyone,
Hope your week is coming along nicely.
Today I wanted to share my very first easel card. I've never made one before and it was lots of fun. I found the instructions on a Splitcoast Stampers Video HERE.


 The inside I had to redo a few times. 
I just couldn't seem to get the front of the card to stand up enough.

Here is the front of the card. 

Super quick post for today. Have a great day. 
Happy crafting,
Christina
