Over the last couple of days I have received some fun goodies I bought from a friend purging her craft room. It was so much fun opening the boxes and seeing everything I bought in person. It inspired me to do some organizing. I stayed up all night working on a project to organize my stamps. I got it finished.

Here is my favorite thing that I received in my big box of goodies:

A stack of shiny textured card stock. I thought when I purchased it that it was all gold so when I got it and realized it was different colors I was ecstatic!

I have a few more colors to use on my men's birthday cards. I will use the girly pastels for other things.

Well that's all for now.
Happy Crafting

Hi Friends!

I am going to post today about the wonderful partner I had for the Alphabet Box Swap on the Cricut message board.

Thank you Donna Schnees!  She sent me the most wonderful things. I knew of one thing because I saw it on her blog. I am adding pictures below of what I received. I cannot believe the creativity of this lady. She definitely beat me in that area. I purchased quite a few things because my mind doesn't run in the same circles as some of the ladies with which I swap. I am hoping as I view more inspiration that my creativity will increase and someday my swap partners will receive as wonderful of gifts as I received.

These are pictures of the box. How creative! It is just adorable.


This is a wonderful album that is folders. I'm not sure how I will use it yet but it just occurred to me that I could put pictures on cards and store them in the pockets! How fab would that be!

Adorable pop-up card and boo banner that hangs vertically. :oD

I saw this item with the stick pins on Donna's blog.  :o)

I LOVE this box. I don't know if she used a Cricut cartridge or not, but it is fabulous! 

 This apple clipboard will go great in my kitchen! How did you know?

This is a picture of the whole collection of things. Donna you blew me away with this box. I can't thank you enough. You did a superb job. Anyone would be lucky to have you as a swap partner!

Well friends that is all for now.  See you soon. Happy Crafting!

Hi, I am posting one of my creations on here for the first time. I started this blog in the beginning for work and now have decided to use it to showcase some of my creations. I am not great by any means but am trying to get better.

This is a album made from paper towel rolls. I used paper from MME. I can't remember the name of the paper but it is really pretty. I made it for my sister for her birthday. Hope she likes it.

I don't have many followers at this time but am hoping to add to my list over time. I am just beginning this journey and hopefully will be posting more than once in a while.

Thanks for looking. Happy Crafting.
