Anyway, I just wanted to share a quick card with you today. My friend at work asked me to make her a card for a baby shower. I finished it up last night. I have to say, I think this is the first baby card I've ever made. The nursery is pink and brown, so this is what I came up with...
I hope you liked seeing my first ever baby card, and have a great HELLO THURSDAY and upcoming weekend!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day! I know I surely had a nice, and relaxing weekend, which you know is never long enough! I just wanted to quickly share with you the card I made for Mother's Day...Of course the picture doesn't do the card justice, as you can't quite see all the glitter in the paper, or the shimmer in the rose, but hopefully you'll get the idea...
So, I decided to give the Pocket Card a whirl. I got the instructions from Splitcoaststampers.com. I used my Cuttlebug, Cherryblossoms folder for the base. The paper I used is DCWV Flower Power Specialty Spring Stack. I used the Mother's Day Seasonal Cricut cartridge, and the rose is a Prima which was white, so I painted it with Shimmerz Paint to match the purple! I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, I have been a very bad blogger, and have completely neglected my blog for quite some time! I have a few good reasons, but I'm not even going to start on all my excuses! What I would like to do is THANK YOU for following my pitiful and neglected blog! I have been really busy making a lot of projects that I want to share with you, and I'm going to really work on updating my blog a lot more regularly from here on out! I don't always have a lot of time to write a lot, so it'll probably be mostly pictures. But, isn't that what we really want to see, anyway!? I'm also trying to work on improving the quality of my pictures and lighting, so please bear with me in the mean time! I just may end up having to go out and buy a new camera here soon!
Today I'd like to share a couple of updated pictures of my beloved craft room! I've made a couple of big changes in just the last few weeks that I am just loving! On Saturday my husband and I were out shopping, and stopped into this store called Dirt Cheap where they sell a lot of close out merchandise that seems to come from Target mostly. Shopping in this store is hit or miss, but we happened to be there on a good day, cause I couldn't believe when I came across a brand-new, still in box (to be assembled) and in absolutely perfect condition, desk for only $30!
Two weeks earlier at that same store, I bought and assembled these Closet Maid Shelves. They were only $8!
I also finally got around to painting my pegboard a few weeks ago:
Oh, and lookie at my new Pink Cuttlebug, I also just got a few weeks ago from HSN! It was such a great bundle and was a great price during National Craft Month! It was one of the best purchases I've made, as it has really brought my projects to a whole another level!
Well, that's all I have time for today, but I will have more to share tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peak into my happy place! Have a great and creative day!
