Teacher Appreciation

I know teacher appreciation was over a week ago, but I have been trying to make this post for several days. Blogger would not let me post pictures for some reason. Anyway, this is one of the gifts we made for my youngest daughter's Kinder teacher. She is really an amazing woman. I cut the wording out in black vinyl and placed it on the outside of the frame. I put a piece of silver card stock on the inside. Then I included a bow at the top with a blingy broach. I love how it turned out. This was only one of the gifts we made. I will try to get the other ones to post later.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Have a fantabulous day!

I made the jump!!

I have been looking at the Sillohette Cameo for some time now. I currently own 2 Cricuts and the Gypsy. I want the freedom to create my own files again with Makethecut...which I have been doing with my Cricut still since I refused to update the firmware. I wanted to be able to get the most current version of the software, but I couldn't because I would no longer be able to use my Cricut with it. I received an email from a Yahoo group I am in that showed the Cameo for $188.00 so I jumped on it. The offer ends today so I will provide the link so you too can get the great price if pu choose to move to the Cameo. I am so excited, and can't wait to get it so I can play.

Here is the link
Use coupon code CDFX for 30% off the posted discount price on the Silhouette Cameo. Coupon expires today, May 16, 2013!

Burst Bow

This is my first attempt at the burst bow. If you have not heard of this before it is really an awesome bow. There is a tutorial n YouTube. If you put "burst bow" in the search field it will be the first result. The tutorial is from Mommycraftsalot. She really does have some great tutorials. I used some fun colors, and i think it came out great.
I hope you all have a fantabulous day!

Back after a long time away

Well I think I have officially made it back to the blogging world. I am so excited to be back, and even more excited to now be able to craft again. We made it into our new home, and have finished the craft room. Now it is ready for many creations. I am also happy to be back to seeing what everyone else out there have been creating, and excited to see new ideas and techniques. So as of now I am going to try to post at least 2 to 3 times a month to begin with then more as I can. I also hope that I can get in on some blog hops and such.
I hope everyone out there is doing well. Now time for some pics...these are pics of my new heaven.

Going to be out for a month or so

Well we finally have the closing date on our house. It is only 3 months later than planned, but now it is here. We do out walk though in 10 days, and close in 18 days. That being said it is time for me to get off the computer, and start packing. We are moving in the weekend of the 25th. I will be so very happy to be in the new home I just do not like the moving part. We never did fully unpack all of our things because we knew we would be moving soon. I know my husband will be happy because I am more than willing to get rid of some things now that we have not had a use for them in 8 months. I plan to do most of the packing and unpacking as my plan if sor him to build my table for my wonderfyl new craft room. The table should be awesome. The plan is for it to be 5ft x 6ft. He is going to make it counter height so I can sit or stand comfortably at it. I will have storage underneath it as well because of the size of it. We had outlets put in the middle of the room in the floor because we knew the table was going to be this big. He is going to drill a hole in the middle of the table for me to just be able to drop cords down, and they will be out of the way. I am so super excited about this. Once the table is in we will figure out the rest of the sotrage that we are going to put in. I do know along one wall will be a countertop of some sort with cabinets. I will post pictures as the process goes. I can not wait to get in that room and start playing. My girlies are so excited too. Thanks for stopping in and letting me bore you for a few..I hope you all have a fantabulous day.

Happy New Year and embroidery work

First I want to send out a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. I hope that your holidays were filled with love, laughter, family and friends. We had a wonderful Christmas here in south Texas with 80 degree weather. I love the weather here so very much. I prefer warmth to cold any day. Today it is in the low 50's, and you would think it is blizzard conditions outside. I do get a little cracked up when I see people bundled up for a snow storm that is never coming. I do understand that people from here are not used to the cold so anything below 70 is freezing. We went out shopping a couple of days ago when it was in the low 60' husband had shorts on, and I had capris on. Everyone thought we were crazy. We had a good laugh.
A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to do some embroidery work on a couple of towels for her bathroom. They have the nautical theme, and she told me kind of what she was looking for. The below is what I ended up creating for her. She is so in love with them...thank goodness.
So one last thing then I will quit boring you, and be on my way to do laundry (I know...don't be jealous.) Our house is STILL not complete. It should have been done the end of October. The last word we got was that it would be complete January 22nd. Well that was until we told them they had to fix a really big screw up they made on the floor in the second floor bedroom. So as of today I don't know if our date has changed or not. I am so anxious to get into the house so I can get all my crafting stuff out of storage, and get my new craft room up and running. The closer it gets the worse I get.

I hope you all have a fantabulous day!!!
