Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I got some wonderful Cozies from Kathy's Cozies one for my Imagine, Expression and Gypsy! I got a gift certificate to my favorite Scrapbook store " Scrappin' Happily Ever After", a new cartridge for my Imagine, an IOU for the 9 new Cricut cartridges coming in January, a new watch, Glee cd and DVD and some other little gifts.I am truly blessed by having a Wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and the BEST Mom in the world! I spent most of Sunday in my "Scrap room" making cards for my card swap next month.
I didn't take any pictures yesterday, my family didn't want there pictures taken so I complied, but did not want to.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and I am looking forward to the new year and a new year creating! It has almost been a year that I was first shown the Wonderful year of scrap-booking/card making.

Well, here it is Friday and I have done nothing this week so far! I was down from Sunday until yesterday on my back. Went back to work yesterday, but by the time I arrive home I want a pain pill and the bed, I am not taking any medication during the day because it does make me loopy. Have you seen the 9 NEW cartridges that Provo Craft is coming out with? I know where my Christmas cash I get is going to!
I have a class I am taking on Sunday at my local scrapbook store, SCRAPPIN' HAPPILY EVER AFTER, and I am super excited.
I hope when I get home from work tonight I can make a few cards. I got 4 new cartridges in the mail yesterday, but my hubby is giving me those for Christmas(He is giving me about 16, some for the regular Cricuts and some for the Imagine) Before anyone says anything, I purchased them really cheap, some of the Imagine for as little as $14.00 on eBay and other sites. I have been ordering them and not opening them up, so my honey can give them to me at Christmas, he has no clue what I have so I help him out and then I get to play!
Well, my Wonderful crafting friends, I hope today brings you happiness! I will try to do some crafting this weekend, and send pictures with it!
Love and Kisses!

Under the Weather

I have been sick all weekend! Bad headcold/sinus infection! The best weekend to go shopping and I get sick! I did go to Walmart and get five of the Lite cartridges they had on sale for $20.00 each, got something for my girls, but I just don't feel in the Christmas spirit, hopefully I will get over this once I start to feel better. I made a few cards this weekend, they are for my in-laws, I also built a Jetmax thing for ribbons and cleaned my table where I scrap( I really want a Scrapbox, but we can't afford one!) sad face! I should be thankful I have a table!I hope you all have a great week and hopefully I will get to feeling better. Thanks for listening!

Last Minute Card

My sweet hubby comes home from work and tells me his boss has a birthday on Friday, so he needs a card by Wednesday! He tells me his boss is a big Penn State fan, so I have no manly paper I took out my Alcohol Inks and made paper. I used Locker talk for the pennant and the block font for the PSU is from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge. I have never made a real masculine card, so this is my first attempt on short notice. I think it looks ok. Have a great day!

Happy November

Hope everyone is well! I am feeling under the weather so all I have been able to do is start working on my cards for my card swap at "Scrappin' Happily Ever After" I feel like crawling under the covers and sleeping for a week, but I have so much that needs to be done, I had to go after work this evening and vote! I hope everyone did the same. I had to take down Halloween and put up my Harvest decorations. I am looking for gifts for family (got a few things from Thirty-one).
I am going to rest and hopefully put some photos up this weekend, after work!

Happy Fall!

Hello, and Happy Fall! This is my favorite time of year! Not too hot and not too cold! The only thing I don't care for is that the days will get shorter! I have been busy! I am now out of the dinning room and now in the office/craft room. My family and I cleaned up the office room, got rid of stuff(took it to Goodwill) and had five bags of trash. If we had not touched it in over a year we threw it away or gave it away. We rearranged the furniture and discovered I could fit a 6 foot table and a 4 foot table in there and still have lots of room. We have not finished cleaning the closet out yet because it is a walk in closet and it has all of our holiday items in it, I plan on going  to get rid of items in there within the next month. I need to purchase some shelves and a shelving unit to put my items on it.
OK,can anyone tell me how to post photos on here?
Have a Fantastic day!!!!

Good Morning Everyone! Well last week was Super Busy for me! I had doctor's appointments, sick child, Mom's Doctor visits, work 10-7, home, dinner with family and time to relax, before doing it all over again! Saturday, I had a co-worker, Pam come over and we did a complete scrapbook for her niece! Ii had so much fun, showing someone what I love to do, and letting her experience it as well. I think she has fallen in love with it! Sunday, I went to my local scrapbook store, "SCRAPPIN' HAPPILY EVER AFTER" and Ivy, the owner had a class on making a Recipe Box! Wow the detail in this box is amazing! It took 5 hours of paints, embossing, chalking, embellishments, and adhesive everywhere, and that was only for the outside of the box! Not done with the inside, but Ivy never lets the class leave without completing a project, so I will have some time to visit and complete. You can see it on the right hand side of this page! Well, that was my week, Now the beginning of a new one!

It's September 1st!

Today, I have been married 20 years!I made my husband a card and gave him a Nook from Barnes and Noble. I have one and love to take it with me to read where ever I go. My honey got a card for me(very special because the person who made it is just so super busy) a $50. gift certificate from "Scrappin' Happily Ever After" and cash to spend the way I want. I thought I would need a new iPhone, but my hubby figured it out!. Thanks for listening!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Good Morning

Getting ready for work, and I am still trying to come up with what I am going to do for my card swap! I wanted to do something for the fall months, but still unsure.
My knee is still giving me problems, and I need to make an appointment to see the Orthopedic Doctor. I have scheduled my Colonoscopy for September, and did my Mamogram yesterday.Feel like I'm falling apart, when I turned 50! LOL
Still trying to figure ot how to put pictures on my blog, help!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Good Morning

I hope all of you are having a Wonderful Day! Can someone tell me, is it possible to import photos from Facebook? I posted photos of some of my projects to my Facebook page, but I am not a computer person so I don't know how to put them on my blog, any help would be fantastic! Have a fantastic day!

Sunday, August 15, 2010


I went to my locall craft store "Scrappin' Happily Ever After" and got some great deals! I purchased a PINK ATG gun, 2 small pads of Basic Grey Paper, 2 packs of paper with embellishment and some Tim Holtz stuff! I am so bad, I Love buying scrapbook stuff!

What to do?

I am in the beginning stages of making a card for the card swap I do each month, and I have no inspiration! I guess I need to search the web and find a bit of help! There is no theme to the card swap, just something you like. Last one, I did a snowflake card, I loved it, but it was a lot of work, and I have 2 cards in the making, but I am thinking of maybe doing a Get Well card or Sorry You are feeling Under the Weather. Choices, choices! Have a Great day!

Feeling Better

I guess I have been feeling blue, but better now! I went to a crop this weekend, had a blast, then I went to a card swap, didn't win, but I enjoyed the cards I have and loved the fact that the local owner, Ivy, of Scrappin' Happily Ever After, said she was proud of me, because I have only been scrapping since Feb of 2010.So now, if I could only figure out how to post my pics on my blog! I feel silly, because I can barely work the computer, I think I should take a class!LOL, Have a fab day, I am off to work!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Getting ready for work and I have been watching videos from other blogs, and trying to figure this internet stuff out. I wanted to put some badges on my page, but I can't figure out how, any suggestions? Have a great day!

Sunday, July 11, 2010


Well I have been trying to make my cards for the card swap we have coming up at the scrapbook store I visit called Scrappin' Happily Ever After. I find something I love and then start i, but never finish. I wish I had more talent and could crate something fantastic, but I am not that far along as of yet. So I attend all the classes I can, follow tons of other bloggers and try as hard as I can to crate something. So that is my day today. Have a great day!

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Not so Well

Well, I guess my blog is not going as planned.I am not a computer person, so I can not figure out how to to put Blinkey's on my page, or anything else. I only have 2 best friends, Gwynn lives in Ohio, but will soon be moving to HI, and Adele lives in WI, so I don't see her, just chat every once in awhile. I stay mostly to myself, but not by choice, I scrapbook and take the classes at my local craft store, but no other stuff. I shop by myself and am by myself(except for family) most of the time. Sad isn't it? Oh we,, I wanted to meet new people and make friends, but so far no one has visited me,I am thinking of shutting my blog down.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


I hope you are having a Wonderful Day! It is the 2nd of June! I turned 50, yes 50 on May 31st. I have been working on graduation cards for all of my daughters friends. I got all 4 of the NEW Cricut cartridges in the mail and can not wait to use them. I also ordered about 4 others, I also want to purchase the Toy Story, and one other cartridge, and am in search of the Tags, Bags, Boxes and ore Cartridge. Then I am going to slow down on purchasing so many. Have a fabulous day!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Happy Saturday

Hope everyone is well. I am getting ready for work, yes work, I am a MSR/Teller for the World's Largest Credit Union. I am trying to make the perfect Graduation card and Father's day card. I have made 2 graduation cards so far and three Father's day cards, but they do not thrill me.Well, have a fantastic day, and please join in on my blog.

Monday, May 17, 2010


Hope Everyone is well. I am ok, busy learning everything. I purchased 7 cartridges this past week. I wish I were better at scrapbooking and card making. Feeling down, because I want to be better, and I want to take all these classes, and because of the schedule I work it is difficult, I have to pay for my addiction to this craft!! LOL Have a great night! Glenda
