Pictures from my new camera.

So my son came over and was to tired to try to figure it out so I did my best and I think I got it. So here are some pictures of things I made at the Stampede. The Easel Card is my favorite. But I did get the (My) Pink Stamper to Autograph my Autograph book from her class.

I love my new camera. Takes a big learning curve, but I'll figure it out a bit at a time.

Happy Scrappin'

My New Camera

Well, It was a little harder than I thought with the new Camera. Everything on my computer was set up for Kodak Camera's My new Camera is a Nikon. It is a sweet camera. I'm actually reading the instructions on it. Don't laugh. You would think, just point and click and upload. Not that easy. My software is clashing and I have to have my computer guy fix some stuff and now that he is working 2 jobs, I am having a hard time getting him over here. He said he was off on Easter so I hope I can bribe him with food. If not, there will be no pictures for awhile.

I just finished my bike ride and am heading up to my craft room to do some organizing since I can't seem to find some of my stuff from the Stampede. Not really unpacked yet.

I am doing a weekend retreat in May with my Sister-in-law and really looking forward to it.

Then in June I'm going to Arlington to the Great American Scrapbook Convention with some of my Austin Area friends.

I am really looking forward to the next month and then some.

Have fun scrapping!

Just plain busy

As usual. Busy as ever. Been taking hubby to Physical Therapy every Tuesday and Thursday. Getting ready for my lamp working annual auction and trying to get over whatever it is I have. Afraid it may be walking pneumonia again. I have to post a couple things. Haven't quite figured out how to do that from my new camera. Hopefully soon I will. Hard learning a new camera.
Anyway, hope your day is great.
Craft on!!

New Camera.

Well, hope to get some pictures posted today. My sweet hubby bought me a new Nikon P100 camera yesterday. Has 26X optical zoom. It is sweet. ALthough I haven't gotten to use it yet because he made me charge the battery overnight. Dang it!!!

I will take some today and post them tonight. Hopefull that isn't to complicated.

I'm pretty excited about this camera becasue of the zoom and the quality. Since I'll be going to Disney in 175 day and staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. In a Savana room so I want to get some close up shots of some Animals.

Anyway, look for some cool pictures tonight.

Happy Crafting.

Stampede Calling Cards

These are the calling cards i did for the Stampede in Frisco last weekend. Unfortubnately I only had 85. After a few mishaps, I at least got these done. Doesn't look like much but each one contains 6 cuts then times the 150 that I cut. Yikes.

I got a bunch of really cool ones that people traded me for. I'll try to take pictures and post tomorrow.

Have a great evening. Enjoy your weekend and happy Cricuting.

Crafts? What are those?

Well, my dear husband had shoulder surgery today. I haven't been to sleep yet. and I am exhausted. He has been sleeping all day. He gets meds every 4 hours and every 6 hours. Goodness, I have to set alrarms to get up in the middle of the night to give him his pills. So instead of crafting, I am playing nurse.
Soon, I promise I will do a craft or two.

Rainy day here in Houston

Well, weather wasn't the greatest today. No projects done. Bummer. I did however open a bunch of my new cartridges and got all my rewards points out to register. Dang hope they have some good rewards soon, I'm getting up there.

I am still on the hunt for a new Expression. Problem being that I don't want cartridges that I already have and since I have 168 I believe was the total, I have to go with an exclusive expression. However most of them have cartridges I already have as well. I really want Pink Journey, but I just refuse to pay that much for a machine for a partial cartridge and cartridges I already own. So if you see any awesome deals here in Houston, let me know.

I have also been saving all the plastic clam shells that the cartridges come in. Gotta come up with a good recycle project for those.

Really want to play with my toys, but guess that will have to wait a couple more days.

Hope you guys all stay warm and dry.

Happy Cricuting.

Let's get this Blog up and running this year.

Life has sure been exciting lately, but I need to get this blog off the ground and running. So, here we go.

I have been ordering cartridges like crazy lately with all these great sales. I got the Disney Classics so I now can do my favorite character, Jiminy Cricket.
Goodness, I really need to count and see how many I have. I think 165 to 170 but I could be wrong. I got the cricut cake mini at Christmas. Still unopened in the box. I have been trying to get an imagine, but since the 4 they have sent me haven't worked Provo craft told me to send it to them and they'll send me one that works. Fingers crossed. I also got a YUDU Thanksgiving day. Still have yet to try a shirt. Maybe I will do it tomorrow and try a video. That's just a scary thought.

I am hosting a local SWARM here in Houston, February 19, 2011. Looks like it could be a full house. We'll see. I'm really excited about my SWARMS this year. I have some great ideas and hoping to make them even more fun for the cricuteers.

Provo craft is doing a huge event in Frisco, March 18, 19 and 20th. The Stampede. I will be going. Hoping it will be as much fun as everyone expects.
A bunch of my Houston SWARMing buddies are going. It will be fun, getting to play all day without worrying about hosting the event.

So stay tuned. We'll be getting this show off the ground starting tomorrow. If nothing else, I'll do a project and post it.
