Flashback Friday Time

Are you ready to flashback? It's a new Flashback Friday and they want to see your first die cut. It's so awesome to examine your progressions as a crafter but these early projects make me cringe. LOL!

My first die cut was used in April 2010. I had just gotten some Spellbinder's dies.


So head over to the Flashback Friday blog and link up your project.

It's a Stamping Boutique Weekend

Hello all. Last week was spring break and I took a break. I worked harder last week than I do when I go to work. I have been cleaning and organizing my craft room and trying to finally get my storage set up and things put away. I realize I have a LOT of stuff. So I will be having giveaways. This stuff has got to go.

I did get some crafting done this weekend. This weekend has been a weekend dedicated to The Stamping Boutique. I love Tracy's images and she has some cuties in her shop. Here is a project I made but never got posted.



Ok, going to check on dinner.

Take care.

It's my Blogaversary!!!

Ok I think I spelled Blogaversary correctly! LOL! But today's the day; it's been 2 years since I started this blog. My crazy girlfriend tricked me into getting started and I haven't looked back. I was so worried I wouldn't have anything to say and most days I don't, LOL! But I'm still here. (And she still hasn't started her blog).

If you want to get in on the blog candy, see above post.

Spring is coming!

Even though it started out cold and rainy here, it warmed up to be a nice day. I love Spring and the flowers are really starting to bloom and poke through the earth.

Today I have some flowers to share. This image is from Doodle Pantry and it's one of my favorite. It's so simple but colors up nicely. I used chalks and Prismacolor pencils on the petals.



Take care.
