Well, I had a plan, or so I thought. I was going to clean and organize my craft room and do some crafting. What was I thinking? We went for breakfast and then had to run by the lumberyard for hoes and a garbage can. Then we saw the plants Tommy's mom had been wanting but a small version, so we ended up going to the Houston Garden Center, they have most of their plants 70% off. We thought we might be able to find her a bigger size. Well traffic was stopped so that took awhile. Meantime my friend post a panoramic picture from her Iphone 5. That changed my mind back and I had to have the Iphone 5. I had made up my mind I was just gonna go with the 4s since I would have to wait 3 to 4 weeks for a phone. Well she tells me her son got his at the Apple Store at Willowbrook. I call, they have none. I call a couple verizon stores. They have none so I make one last call to the Apple Store in The Woodlnads. They had them in stock. So we head back into town and I wait in a line for the Iphone 5. Tommy got a 4s. We spent about 1 1/2 hours total. It is soooooooo cool. I got a white 15 gig IPhone 5. I love it. So we finally get home and I think I will take a nap. Well that didn't happen, so I went out and mowed the yard. Now our yard is and acre so it took a little while, then I pressure washed some of the driveway. Then around 7:45 we decide we need to eat supper. We went and grabbed Popeyes Chicken and came home and watched TV and did some laundry. Played with my phone a bit, but then had to charge it. So, now I am drinking hot tea and getting ready for a good night sleep. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Hopefully some crafting.
Well, it is Saturday and I have been up since 4:30am. My mind was racing with ideas and once that starts, I just give up and get out of bed. My sweet puppy is laying on the floor under my desk snoring. She is so funny. She could have stayed in bed with her granddaddy and Petie but she can't stand to be without me for 5 seconds. So I sit her and listen to her snore. Such a lady. LOL So this weekend is one I have been looking forward to for awhile now. I have no plans no commitments, just get to spend the weekend doing what I want. Which is cleaning my scrap room and crafting. My plans for the weekend include finishing my samples for the Elmo birthday party. Making some T-shirts and an Apron and working on a couple Christmas projects form my next SWARM. I am also hoping to get new folders made for all my new Cartridges. I am just looking around my desk and it appears I have bought about 18 new cartridges recently. DANG!!!! Loving Create A Critter 2, Suburbia, Artiste, Pretty Penants, Teddy Bear Parade, Team Spirit, Billionaire, Bump in the Night and Art Philosophy,of course my all time favorite Mickey Fonts. Can't believe I am actually using so many cartridges lately. It is kinda fun playing with all the new stuff and pulling out a few oldies and trying them out. Well, the house just woke up! So

Elmo is a character, well quite a character. He makes my little niece (not really but she thinks she is) laugh and smile. She turns 2 on October 6, and I was asked to help with some party favors for her daycare party. I have been cutting out all sorts of Elmo shapes. Working with 4 Sesame Street Cartridges. Elmo's Party, Sesame Street Seasons, Seasame Street Font and Sesame Street Friends. I also am using a few boxes and bags from Artiste the Close to My Heart cartridge. I am meeting with momma on Friday to get final approval and am really excited. Of course I am making estras for Jeana to play with while we talk.

Provo craft just released a couple new cartridges that I just LOVE!!! Create a Critter 2 and Suburbia. I used the Create A Critter 2 cartridge for a couple cards I demo'd for the September 8, 2012 SWARM. I was lucky enough to snag the Create A Critter 2 at Joann's for $34.95. I ordered my Suburbia from Terri at www.stampsalive.blogspot.com for the $34.95 plus $2.95 shipping I believe. Ordered on Thursday recieved on Saturday. NOW THAT IS SERVICE!!! YEs, I highly recommend her. I'll post a few pictures of cards later.

Wow, it has been over a year since my last post. But I'm back and creating like a crazy woman again. I have been buying a ton of cartridges lately. Just got the new releases Create A Critter 2 and Suburbia. Love these 2 cartridges. They are quick, easy, and fun. I used a couple of images from Create A Critter 2 for my SWARM on Saturday. Tonight I have been working on a series of cards named: And I said... I plan on a couple series of cards from this cartridge. But I will post the 4 cards I have done. They are a little mean, but the ladies I made them for will love them.
