Welcome to my crafty little corner! Feel free to comment and follow me on my path to creativity. I love meeting new people, so don't be shy! Scrapbooking, journaling, making felt plushies, embroidery, painting, photography, blogging, organizing, reading, and sewing are some of my most favorite things.
So yea... While most of you are enjoying your nice spring weather.. and wearing shorts and flip-flops, I am currently snowed in. We had a huge blizzard last night that will continue on to today. For the moment it has taken a nap and whilst doing so I had my hubby go take a few pics. I had this GENIUS plan to strategically park all the cars in the driveway thinking (because I am so innovative) that the snow would blow right over the top of them. Fantastic thought right? WRONG!!!!! Now all 3... truck, SUV and car have to be dug out and along with that there is several feet of snow in random places from falling in between cars etc... Lesson Learned!! I guess that's what I get for laughing last night and saying "I'll be drinking coffee and watching neighbors shovel while mine is free and clear because I'm a GENIUS!" HAHA nice..
Oh and special thank you to the snow plow that made a wall of snow at the end of our driveway.
Oh, and sorry about your car Val.... I'll dig it one day....hehe
Also I would like to say that this is the longest break I've had from blogging. I have been taking care of my little one who got pneumonia again for the second time and been decluttering like mad. Hopefully I'll be back with a vengeance and blogging every day. We shall see!!! I have lots to catch up on :)
This week I've been super busy with a complete house de-clutter/cleaning. I went a little crazy trying to get rid of things we don't need anymore. I sold a ton of it on the local yard sale FB page and made over $500!!! YAY!!! I love the feeling I get when I see more space and less crap around the house! ha! Besides cleaning my hubby took off this week for a stay-cation. All we've been doing is lounging around the house, cuddling, watching movies and stuffing our faces. Best kind of vacation right?
Last night I invested in Photoshop Elements and I'm still in the process of trying to learn it. I tried to get some photo effects from some cute sites and can't figure out how to put them into my Photoshop. It's driving me nuts!! I keep getting errors... BOOOOO! So this weekend I will be immersed in lots of reading and begging my photoshop friends to helllpppp me! I hope everyone has a super fantabulous great weekend!!
I got a really neat custom order a few weeks back and had to share! A customer of mine had a great idea for reward badges for accomplishing chores. So after she told me what 14 accomplishments I sent her sketches and got started. Here are just a few of the badges I made for her son :)
Packing a backpack
Comes with a removable book
Packing a suitcase
Making a bed, complete with poofy pillow
Big Boy underwear
Cleaning up toys, toys are removable too
I had so much fun making these badges. Taking on new challenges keeps me inspired and happy :)
I had some pretty amazing photoshoots within the past week. I had the best Photographer, Make-up artist and Hair Stylist!! I had to share a few sneak peeks. I have never felt as beautiful as I did during this shoot!! I will be posting lots more over the next week or so :) I can not get over how amazing the photos came out! Eeeek! We were going for the high fashion look, aka no smiles only fierceness :)
