I've been working on the railroad.....

Ok it wasn't a railroad per say but I have been working on several projects. I decided to take a break from building my craft show empire to create a few cards. All of these are super cute if I do say so myself.

Here is what I've been creating this past week.

As you can tell I have been on a birthday card kick!

If you like what you see pop on over to my esty store, these are ready for purchase :)

There are things called a leash...

Madi, our Corgi-German Sheppard mix, received a postcard in the mail last week reminding her to go to the vet for her yearly check up. As you can imagine she was just chomping at the bit to go (no sarcasm there). So like a good doggie owner I scheduled her appt.

Yesterday was the big day. Poor Madi was anxious and wondering what in the world was going on because it was just her getting into the car. (We always take both dogs out together but this time Strudel stayed home). You can imagine our shy, anxious dog is on high alert when we pulled into the parking lot but she was a good trouper and followed Jason on her leash and all seemed ok until.....

Some idiot was leaving when we were going in and they didn't have their dog on a leash; their dog rushed my poor Madi and attacked her! Luckily Jason grabbed Madi as I grabbed the other dog. Madi is ok and was not hurt but boy was I mad. I told the owners ( who just stood there) that they need to get a leash for their dog. Seriously, how can you not put your dog in a leash, some people!

Happy Monday

Well it has been no stop for me, it's been go, go, go but it has been great to stay busy (ok can you sense that I have had to much soda)!

During my latest creative binge I whipped up this nifty birthday card (nifty? really, where did that come from?)

I must have traveled back to the 70's for this color scheme, heck it doesn't matter where I went, I think the end result is awesome! (Ok I may be tooting my horn a tad much hehe) The flower was created using circle punches and the center is a little bling to tie it all together :)


 I wanted to carry similar elements to the inside of the card. To do this I added a circle to the corner of where you would write your birthday wishes.

If you can't tell I am thrilled at how this card came out, here lately I have been working on holiday items and it was a refreshing break to get away from snowman and witches!

Don't forget to swing by our etsy store and check out the latest items up for grabs.

I'm Back!

Well it goes without saying that I haven't kept my blog up like I should, like I thought I would.

I hope with a little time this summer I can get in a good rythm of writting regularly. On that note I am kicking off my steady posting with this...

I updated photo's on our facebook page these two cuties are just a sample. Head on over to check out the lastest happenings saving the world one craft creation at a time!

April Already????

 Before I ramble on too much I have an update on my mom. She had her surgery on March 28th on her right hand. She is healing just fine and when I talked to my dad today he said the incision is starting to itch :) She will see the Dr on the 12th for her post-opt check up

Holy smokes where did time go?

My intentions have been to write something witty, clever, interesting just to write something at least once a week for starters. Then I wanted to live dangerously and try blogging twice to three times a week! So much for good intentions, right now I am lucky to write once a month. Time has gotten away from me it seems. Not to worry though, once May 5th passes I will be free to write to my little hearts content or until my fingers fall of; whatever comes first..

Why May 5th you ask, that is when I am officially done with my Masters Program and things will slow down a little for me. This year has been a hectic one.  My brain is swimming with new craft ideas I can't wait to share them with the masses.

Well off I go, back to the world of school. If I work hard now I can have a little time to watch the Wichita Shockers tonight :)

O Happy Day!

It is finally here..............the day is near..............we have been waiting for..........

My mom's surgery is finally going to happen! Mom is really excited, wait that doesn't sound right...oh well, she is really excited and relived that this is finally going to happen.  Thanks to all the wishes and fundraising we are a go for the 28th of March. She will have her right hand operated on first, then after it has healed we can schedule the left hand.

There are so many people to thank (I feel like I am giving an acceptance speech at an awards show); we appreciate all the prayers, word of encouragement and support of our fundraiser!!!! While we are a go with the right hand, we are still raising money to help pay for the left hand.

If you would like to help please check out our online store. All proceeds from the items we sell go to the surgery fund.

I am off to work on more of my Master's Program....I think I can, I think I can

Things are looking up!

Well I have been slipping with my posts, I apologize. Things have been hectic, I am on the downside of my Masters (I graduate in May) and the school year is quickly flying by ( I can't believe it is almost March) and now with the snow storm of the season I haven't had a moment to write or craft or anything :(

I did want to take a moment to tell you a little good news about my mom. We have been waiting on a call from the hospital about her surgery. As you may remember they need to approve it before we can schedule it because she doesn't have insurance. We have been waiting since last December and they finally called!

Here is the skinny, the hospital ordered 4 weeks of therapy and braces for her arms. At the end of the 4 weeks she will be reevaluated by her surgeon. While that is good news in a way it is kinda frustrating  because she has already had therapy and braces before and it didn't work but they want to try it again one more time. Of course I was afraid since she didn't have insurance that we would have to pay for all of the therapy but the hospital said they are going to cover the therapy since they are the ones who ordered it.

My mom is one step closer to getting the help she needs and deserves.

I want to say thank you for everyone who has continued to pray and send happy thoughts. My mom's spirit is boosted by this latest news and I am excited as well.

Mom, I know you will read this so let me say to you, I love you and Dad and I am glad we finally have something to look forward to!
