Yesterday my mom showed me how to paint using water colors. Let me just say that I do not paint or draw and am not a artist. This was my first time really painting. I think that it turned out pretty good considering. I really enjoyed spending time with my mom and learning something new from her.

I have not posted anything in a long time. I had a couple of weeks were I was just not in the mood to craft or do anything really. I am finally feeling better and not so down in the dumps. My mom and I are planning on having another crop party so I have been thinking of ideas to do. My mom and I are both going to share a project for us all to do. I decided to do this idea that I got when I went to Alabama a couple of weeks ago. While down there Mom and me needed a pick me up so we went shopping at Hobby Lobby.

I have been so busy and have not had time to do much crafting. I missed it so much that I had to take today to spend in my craft room. I was thinking about my cousin today that I have not seen in while and thought I would make her a card to let her know that I was thinking about her. This is what I came up with.

I am so excited we are having a crop party tomorrow. Its really just my mom and sisters coming over to play and eat. Yeah! I have not posted any projects the last couple of days because like I said I have to try to get other things done. I started my first nursing job wednesday and have worked everyday since then. Let me tell you, I am so,so,so very tired. I have had the last couple of months off and am not used to physical labor..... I love being a nurse and helping people when they are at their worst. For the first time I feel contempt with my job and love what I do. I am so glad that I decided that it was not to late to go to school and do something important with my life. It is also not bad finally making a paycheck after being a full time student for 2 years. I am so thankful for my husband and family that supported me and kept me motivated when I was ready to give up. This post took a different turn then I orginallly planned but I hope I did not bore you to much. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I will post some pics from the crop party and all the finished projects.

This is a post for my husband. He tells me all the time that he is just not crafty when I try to get him to craft with me. He says he is not crafty but I say otherwise. Here is a shower-head that he made. It fits the length of our shower and sprays water the whole length. He designed it all. He had his designed lazered at work and then welded the parts together to get the final product. He just installed it today and is trying it out right now. He is so excited about his project just like we are about a card we make.
I took on the task this year of making homemade valentines for my daughter's class. She has about 24 kids in her class. I decided to do 4 different designs and make 6 of each. I picked out my colors first and then went to my carts to find something to go with the colors. I have got 3 of the 4 designs done and wanted to share what I got so far.

Today is Robyn's birthday and she is having a birthday challenge. I am on this cupcake kick right now so I had some cupcake paper left over and decided to use it and then built my card around that. I got an idea today from watching a video from MPS were she used her sewing machine to sew on the card. I decided to sew pieces of paper together like a quilt. It was not a easy task at all. My machine did not like sewing paper and my machine keep coming unthreaded. I do have to say it was worth it, cause it gave the card a neat look.

I am super excited about this post. This is my first attempt at sewing with a pattern. I have sewed before but just like pillows and small things. My mom gave our friend and I a sewing lesson the other day and then I took on this project. I had trouble at first and needed my moms assistance but once I got going it seemed to get easier. I think that it turned out to awesome! I can't wait to use it now.

My little girl has a birthday party to go to this saturday. So she wanted to make a card for her friend. I let Jada pick the colors and how to lay it out. I think it turned out adorable. I used the Rock Princess cart for the cupcake. I also made a envelope to go with it I used the Wild Card cart. I put a cupcake on the envelope also.
