Well I have been on vacation all week and finely had time to play today. I only had a mammogram to do this morning. Glad to have that out of the way for another year. I cut a few trees and bushes in the front yard and pulled the weeds until it got a little warm then up stairs I went. I worked with my cricut and made these first two cards. They were fast and easy. I wanted another fast and easy project so I turned to this little journal purse. The original can be found HERE. The black and white one is not covered, that is the way it came. I just added a pocket to cover the logo on the front and back. I did cover the inside of the covers. These are fast and sooooooooooo cute. Thanks Becky.

Barn card

This is a fun little barn spinner card. I got this stamp at the stamp convention last year. I just love this little pig. I used a red textured paper for the barn then just added the brown trim. I ran dental floss through the center of the 2 pig stamped pieces and attached it between the barn and trim.

Cricut Lantern

I have a lot of new projects coming up. I have been very busy outside the past few weeks but have found some time to craft. I really need to start work on Christmas items. I just can’t seem to get going with it this early and when it is soooooooo hot outside. Maybe once it drops below 90 I can start to think of Christmas.
I did get to visit my niece today, she is hanging in there. Bless her heart she is always on the move and keeps very busy. She went into labor at 25 weeks and she is on strict bed rest now. She has been in the hospital for over a week now and I think they will be keeping her a week maybe two more. Thanks for all the prayers sent for her. This is their first baby and I wish things would have gone easier for her. But she is keeping a great attitude and ready to do what ever she needs to keep her little boy safe. Ok on to the first project:
This is a fast project with the Cricut. I am having such a good time with the cricut and can’t wait to learn more about it. I twisted 6 strands of light wire to form the handle. The paper is textured (form Hobby Lobby). I will be making some of these in red, green and gold to hang on the Christmas tree, I will poke a little clear Christmas bulb through the bottom. I guess I have started thinking of Christmas; I just haven’t started work on it yet.

Jodie's Baby Shower Gift

I made these last night for my niece’s baby shower, they are not finished yet but I thought I’d share them with you anyway. I want to add a few more things to them like pacifiers, bottles, sippy cup, anything I find that I think they need will be tied on. I just love them and will be making them for every baby shower from now on.
