New Cartridges are coming

 A Formal Occasion, Florals Embellished, and All Sports

I came across the pictures of these cartridges and thought I would post for you all to see. I am not sure of the release date, but I figure that it will be the end of January or beginning of February. I think the All Sports one looks really like it will have something for everyone. The Formal Occasions looks great for all those occasions that are not weddings. I have several formal dance pictures of my children and think this cart offer more options for those other formal affairs. The Florals Embellished I didn't get a picture of the cuts that are on this cart, but I think the front of the box shows some great photos.

I am kinda excited to know when they will be released. I think I will end up getting all of them all, but maybe not when they first come out. I think that I will wait till they are at a more reasonable price.
Well good night to you all and hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve.

New Years Day Blog Hop

Happy New Year
Blog Hop 2011

Come join a wonderful blog hop to relieve your New Years day creative block (or the hang over from the night before). We have so many wonderful crafters showing their New Year creativness.

Come join us. I will post more information on Thursday or Friday.

Christmas Gifts

Here is a couple of the Christmas gifts that I recieved from my family.

I was so happy to get these Martha Steward Cartridge. I don't have the Cricut Cake, and don't plan on getting one either. I want the carts for the borders that are on the cards. The are great for scrapbook pages. And being a scrapper at heart, this is what I look for. I have been trying card making, but still need work to be any good at that.

I still have more gifts, that I recieved, but my camera's battery just doesn't want to charge. So I am going to have to go and buy a new one. So I am crossing my fingers that I will be able to get a new battery from Fry's this weekend. I just hope that the store won't be that crowded.

Well off to bed, tomorrow is another day of work. So need my sleep really badly, didn't get much this weekend due to family being here. This going to bed at 2am every morning and getting up by 7am to cook breakfast for 15 10 18 people  day for 4 days.  It has been a very busy and exhausting, but well worth it when I think about what a wonderful time that was spent with family that I don't get to see often, I feel really good.

Well I pray that everyone of you also had a feel that the holiday was worth all the work that you might have had to do.

Hope you all had a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS

Well, Christmas is over and the New Year is just around the corner. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and recieved the greatest gift that any of us could recieve. That gift would be your family being healthy and to share the christmas holiday with loved ones. This is the one gift that I am so happy that I have recieved.

God Bless You All!

Monday, Dec 13th, 2010 mail haul

Ok here is Monday mail haul. LOL I still have a few more things coming, but it should be winding down here before Christmas.

I know I just got my imagine, but the new mats work so well on the Expression that I went and ordered 4 packages of 2 so I could have them on hand. I know I will get more as I currently I 30 of the old mats and they are just not as good at these. I know why do I need more when I have so many of the others. Well, I will be getting rid of the others and eventually only have these new ones.

Well they finally sent me some more of my kit. It is still missing the stamp pad scrubber and the chocolate ink pad. Who knows when that will get here.

OH, for any of you STAMPIN UP fans, I will be placing my 2nd order on January 8th and if any of you are interested I am offering a 20% discount on all items ordered. You will have to paypal me (with a small fee), send me a check, or send me a Cashiers Check or Money Order. If you place the order yourself on my website you will not get the 20%. Just let me know.

This I ordered off of Ebay for $20. I wanted it, but didn't want the Cake Machine that you had to buy to get it. I love the designs for borders for my scrapbook pages. I am still trying to find the 3 Martha Stewart Cartridges at a good price, cause I want those also.

This was my big haul on Monday. These where ordered off of Ebay and the paper ones I didn't pay more than $18 each and the die cut ones I got for between $20 and $28. Which is alot cheaper than other places are selling them for.

Well that is it for today. I hope you have enjoyed you view of my haul, also hope you had a wonderful day. I will leave you with a little prayer that was sent to me today, that I really thought was perfect.

May today be all you need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears. May God manifest himself today in ways you have never experienced! May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged. I pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, true and undying love for God.

Holiday Wishes Blog Hop Candy Winner is.......

Alright, we need a drum roll here. Pa rump pa rump pa (I know not very good. lol). Well after making up 70 of this little papers with everyones name on it, and then folding them. My daughter fell asleep before I finished last night. So this morning she drew the name of the winner. There has to be a better way!!! If someone know how I can link up or download (whatever it is you need to do) to get the counters I see some people have. Please, I need to get this and need help figuring out how to get it to work on my blog. My son is not living with us any longer and has moved over 2 1/2 hours away, so I don't have anyone who can help with the computer stuff anymore. I am not technically inclined at all. I need to be taught and do it several times to be able to do it without help. It's an age thing. LOL So please if any of you technically brillant people can take pitty on me and help me it would be greatly appreciated. I still haven't been able to figure out how to put up a link for my Stampin Up Web page. It is truly sad.

Well I got on a soap box again and I know that you all really want to know who the winner is. Oh, I will be posting more pictures of my new haul that came in yesterday. I am in the process of reading them from the camera to the computer. Thank goodness, my camera and computer talk and understand what to do or this would not be done either. I know got off the Winner again. lol I am such a tease!!!

And the WINNER IS...................

Are you sure you don't want me to tell you more about maybe what my next project is going to be for the 2 Blog hops that are coming up???? OK, I know be quiet and give us the winner.

The WINNER IS..................................


LOL I am so mean.

My New Haul

Ok, this is all the stuff I got the end of last week through Saturday. Some is from Custom Crops, Bargain, and Die Cuts Central.

I bought the Gypsy DVD's to help me get better aquanted with my Gypsy. The Pink Stamper DVD is for my little one, she loves her projects cause she can do them easily. I also bought the Cricut for Beginners DVD for my little to help her understand the Expression I am giving her. The Vinylology DVD is for me to learn about cutting and designing with it. The books and Magazine are to help me get more creative with cards, my thing is scrapbooking.

These books are also to help me with card making. The Clevercut is because I wanted a rotary style cutter.

I love the Webster Ribbon and I had to buy it just to have it. Two stamp sets, one of Cardinal Family by Heartfelt Creations and the other saying stamps by Joy's Life "Lots of Pun". Five Companion Cuttlebug folders for Happy Haunting, Give a Hoot, Winter Frolic, Cindy Loo, and Mini Monsters. I finally go the Don Juan Cart, I should have purchased it with my rewards, but oh well. I also purchased an extra blade and housing for my Clever Cutter and some glues that I wanted to try out.

Four new stamp caddies for all the new stamps that I have purchasing lately. Oh, and the Gypsy clutch bag to put my Gypsy into on the go.

Some BoBunny Chipboard albums, rubbons, and stickers.

Lots of paper BoBunny as well.

And more paper,

and more. If you saw my project for this past weekends blog hop then you will see the paper that I use in my 2 page layout.

More of the Imagine carts, Country Carnival, Mr. Frosty, Elise, Mystical Garden and last but not least Imagine More (yes, my imagine is coming up soon). I also got some of the I-top magnet packages, Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Delight chipboard album and 6x7 decorative edged tablet. There are also 4 packages of the Hampton Art Flower Press paper flowers.

Ta Da!!!! And finally my Imagine!!!

And never with out more cartridges. Birthday Bash, Wrap It Up, Robotz (which some of you have left comments to win), Sports Mania, Elmo's Party, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Batman, Superman, and Boys will be Boys.

I did get another order in today, but didn't have time to take pics, so I am thinking maybe tomorrow if work is not to over whelming.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and those of you who joined the Blog Hop, I hope it inspired you.

My New Scraproom

Ok, several weeks ago I was with out internet and got really sick with the cold/flu that was going around. Well out of desperation, I did venture out, before getting really sick, to IKEA and bought all new furniture for my Scraproom (it use to be a spare bedroom). Well my internet was down for almost a full week, so I painted the room an off white (had to get rid of the awful pink with flowers) which I did in sections as I put together the furniture and removed the old furniture. So it took me the whole week to get that part done and then another week or so to get everything back and organized. So here is what my scraproom looks like now.

These are 3 bookcases I put togther. The middle one has full glass doors on it.

This is my Cartridge Shelves, but only for the regular and lite cartridges. Next to that is my brad storage drawer attached to the wall (this is really great). Next to that is a plastic storge drawer unit that hold my tools, glues, and supplies. On top of this unit is my ATG guns and my Gypsy.

This is my Cricut Expressions home and future home of my Imagine. On the shelf above the 2 drawer storage units hold my acrylic blocks and a few stamp pads and other small stamping tools.

This is my 29" monitor for my desk top this is my main designing area with one of my Design Studio Softwares. Next to that is a glass door bookcase that holds my Cuttlebug, CB folders and dies, my charms, trinkets, ribbon, and flowers.

This is my work area. ie: pay bills, answer emails, purchase online, and print out whatever. I like it cause I can look out the window at the birds that hang around in the trees that are in front of that window.

This area next to my work area is my youngest daughters homework/crafting area. She needed a space of her own and a place that I could help her with her homework.

This is one side of the closet in the room. The drawers hold pattern papers, the first shelf hold sorters that I put my paper scraps in by color. The next shelf hold scrap kits and 2 draw units that have different kinds of thick embellishments sorted by theme. The top shelf holds unused albums and misc other scrapbooking supplies.

This side of the closet drawers hold cardstock in about 75% of them the rest is more pattern paper. On top of those drawers are plastic folders with diecuts and flat embellishments sorted by theme and a box with more pattern paper on it. The shelf above that holds about 30 DCVW paper packs and picture sorters. The top shelf hold all my albums that are completed and the ones I am working on.

This is my crafting table and it is located in the center of the room for maximum use. It has 6 drawer on each side and space to put a storge unit under.

This is the storage unit that is under the Crafting table. It hold scraping tool in the top drawer, project in progress are in the second drawer, completed projects in the third drawer, and photo mats, 6x6 and 8x8 paper (both pattern and cardstock). This faces away from the entrance so it is not seen from the door.

This is the other side of the Crafting table and it my baby "Pico's" spot. He doesn't like to be to far away from his mother. LOL

This is the bookcase next to the cartridge shelf. It holds my "Your Story", seasonal cartriges, stickles, buttons, flosses, and books.

This middle case holds my DVD's, some of my stamps, my cameras (they are in the striped bag), and the remainer of my stamp pads, sponges, dabber, etc.

This case that is closest to the door holds my 8 1/2x11 paper in the 2 drawer units, my Copic markers, more of my stamps, envelopes, Prisma Color Pencils and other markers.

This is the bottom drawer on the entrance side of the Crafting table. It holds all my Martha Stewart punches.

This is the middle drawer on the entrance side of the Crafting Table. It hold my I-Top and EK Success punches.

This is the top drawer on the entrance side of the Crafting Table. It holds my heat gun, Bow Easy, and my Viva Decor Pearl Pens.

This is the bottom drawer on the window side of the Crafting table. It holds 1/3 of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and 2 each of Viva Decor's Glass Effects Gel and Glitter Liner ( I am looking at expanding those to full collections in the near future).

This is the middle drawer on the window side of the Crafting table. It holds one more 1/3 of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

This is the top drawer next to the window side of the Crafting table. It holds the last 1/3 of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Well I hope you liked your tour of my Scraproom. There are several drawers I didn't open, but this post was really very long and the other drawers that are at my daughters and my desk are mainly school and business stuff.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week. Will take pics of the packages that are coming and post them here for you to see.

Todays package

Ok, so I took the plunge and joined Stampin Up this past week and WOW my stuff got here today.

Now I need to get started with getting some workshops and classes going so I can buy more stuff, as I kinda blew my budget out of the water with the Black Friday thru Sunday sales. The only good thing is I have all but 2 of my Xmas gifts bought and those 2 are gift cards.

Oooo, another package

Oh, I did some major Ebay bidding and one of my packages arrived on Saturday.

These are the carts that I bid on and won for my new Imagine Machine (which by the way has not been shipped yet). I have some others I have bid on and won, but not here as of yet. So soon.

I still have one more package that arrived today and my new scraproom to show you all. So stay tuned. lol
