Happy FALL ya'll

Us here in So Cal have been enjoying (finally) the weather around here - it's been in the 80's and cool in the morning and evening. So love this weather and since today is the last day of summer (yeah and stay away for longer next year please) and tomorrow is the first day of FALL and I am slowly decorating for Halloween & Fall - my absolute favorite time of the year! With that said I wanted to share something I made recently

 
Just added a paper hat and some creepy plastic bugs...



I made several variations of this and plan to hang'em up and making extra for my upcoming show in October... 
 

Hope you are getting your spooky decorations on. Happy Fall to you!

Burlap LOVE #1342

I can't be sure that I have created that many burlap projects but I do know how much I love the stuff and try and use it ALOT! Wednesday I got busy and finished off 4 burlap pennant banners that came out lovely, if I do say so myself. 

In the past I have painted on my burlap. It's a tedious process but allows me the customization I desire. But recently I discovered the amazing new pre-printed burlaps! Oh wow - last year they had a few choices this year the choices have doubled....oh my but so have the price$ thank goodness for the weekly 40% off coupons! 


These banners were made using all the newest printed burlaps. Look how cool-

HAPPY CRAFTING

Journal Thursday

I craft ALOT and daily! There are a few crafting areas that I love and don't do well and would love to learn more about them - the first thing is sewing! I really wish I could make my own clothes and follow a pattern-my biggest problem is being precise. Also don't have much patience! So I need to deal with that. First step is admitting you have a problem! 


My second area is JOURNALING - I absolutely love the idea - I covet all those amazing pages I see on Pinterest - the beauty of the techniques & the journaling atop of the art AMAZING! But when I try - well not great but I keep trying every once in awhile. I decided to make myself get better at JOURNALING so I will give myself a prompt a week and journal. 

Here is my first attempt - even though I did it in July while I was on vacation....at least I was trying 


Here is my page


I used some watercolor crayons. And used my finger to blend the hair and the flowers on the side. 

See not much technique here mostly journaling, which is why I am making this commitment to myself, hopefully I follow thru. Next week my prompt is ME now (journaling done on my birthday in August) 

Have a crafty day!

Wordless Wednesday



Sometimes I need a reminder like this; to re-ignite my mommy meter. I know I am doing a good job but sometimes the "everyday" gets me exhausted & feeling defeated. I'm glad we as parents make an effort to do family things like this! It's so important for my kids & us!

Sweet baby Book


I just had to share another project I made using the paper kit from Pebbles that I told you about - this is a large 8 x 8 mini scrapbook that I made using only the items in the kit ---






Not bad right? 
Nice and big and ready for baby's photos! 
Tomorrow I'm gonna share a photo line up of all the items I created with the pebbles kit. 
It'll be a long post for sure
I am linking this up to the challenges above.
Happy crafting

Welcome baby

I am still on a baby girl kick as seen in my last post and in this one. I am happy to say that I am also still using the same kit by Pebbles. I adore this paper kit and can you see how much stuff I am getting made out of this entire kit. As a professional crafter/scrapbooker - I would highly suggest buying a kit off of Peachy Cheap and crafty steals - they offer complete lines of paper kits and are reasonably priced. 

Ok anyway here is another card I made with a brand new, fresh smelling, chubby baby  in mind. Hope you like it - I have some more to share from the same kit in the next few days.


Real simple but so girly, right?

I am linking this up to the following challenges:
 
artistic inspirations - anything goes
love to create - mad about plaid
love to scrap - anything goes
craft creations - anything goes
cutesy daisy - girly
the paper nest - anything goes


thanks for visiting
