So I didn't realize that uploading a video to YouTube and Blogger
would take so stinkin long! I am working on 20 minutes uploading now and still have about 15 to go. WOW!!!
Maybe there is something I don't know. I guess that's something I will have to check into. Well anyway, a video will be posted as soon as I get this to finish up.
I really don't know why but I am quite nervous..hahaha
I hope you enjoy the video!
See ya soon!

What A Night!

Since I couldn't sleep last night because I was waiting for the storm we were supposed to get ( I am a big chicken when it comes to storms) I decided to pass my time by doing some crafting. I got a lot done but it doesn't seem like I got too far. Does that make sense? I don't know if my mind was just so pre-occupied with the storm or what my deal was but I had three different projects going all at the same time. I finished a note card holder and started on two envelope mini albums and a paper bag mini album. I managed to screw up the one envelope mini half way through so I set it aside until I was awake enough to think of a way to fix it. The other envelope mini and the paper bag mini just got adhered together. I'm not really sure what I am going to do with those yet but they are sitting on my table just staring at me now.

I have several projects that I want to post this week but I'm just not sure how I am going to get everything done. We have 3 baseball games scheduled for this week and the official start of the season is on Saturday. Those little guys and this mommy are going to be exhausted!

I have been searching for a tripod so that I can post a video but I haven't had too much luck with that. I think I can do a little mini video by just holding the camera but I'm not sure how well that will go. I'm pretty sure I am going to try it out just to see.

Well I guess that's enough rambling on for this morning. I think I am going to get some laundry done and while I am waiting on that, I just might head on down to the crafting table again and see what I can squeeze in.

See ya soon! :-)

Mother's Day Challenge Project

This is the project I did for Mary's Mother's Day Challenge. Check out my last post for her link. :)
I know this is a horrible picture and I apologize! I was rushing to get this entered before the deadline because that's me...waiting until the last minute to get everything done. Anyway, it is very dark in the house no matter how many lights I turn on. I am still trying to figure out how to use my camera functions properly also.

Alright now that I am done rambling...let me tell you about my project. I had an idea in mind but at the last minute I changed my mind. I decided I would make my mother an album for her Mother's Day gift this year. So I ran on over to Dollar General and picked up a $1.00 picture album. I removed the covers and simply added cardstock. I used my Cricut and the Forever Young cartridge to make the flowers and I just added a brad to the center. I printed out the Happy Mother's Day from Word on the computer and that's about it. Very Simple, Very Cute, and best of all...Very Inexpensive.

Head on over to check out Mary's blog. The link is in my last post. Have a GREAT NIGHT !
See ya soon!

Can't Wait To Get Started!

Well I thought I would have a video up by now but the kids WOULD NOT sleep this week, CAN WE SAY FRUSTRATING!!! Anyway, I will be getting started on a very special project this weekend. I will be doing my first challenge with Mary over at . It is a Mothers Day project using the colors; Purple (my favorite) Green, Blue and White. I have an idea in mind and I really hope it works out. I guess we will see this weekend !! I have learned so much from Mary so I am very excited to do my first project challenge with her. She is absolutely wonderful! You should head on over and check out her blog. You can also find her on Youtube at
Ok well I think I am going to head on back over to YouTube and see if I can learn something new tonight before I head to bed.

Hey there, thanks for stoppin by!!!
This first post will be short and sweet and then after everything is all set up, I will get down to the nitty gritty :-).
I decided to jump into the world of scrapbooking about two months ago. I loved scrapbooking but then... I started searching the internet for ideas and tips and such. I quickly found out that there are sooo many things that can be done with paper! So I have been craftin my little behind off!!  
So anyway, the purpose of starting this blog is to share my projects, meet new and wonderful people, and simply to have a great time.
I owe everything I know to all the great bloggers and YouTubers so I will definitely have a lot of "tribute" projects.
I hope you ENJOY!

See ya soon!
