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.

Today I decided to make invitations to my crop party I am having. I have 5 sisters (I am the oldest) and we all love to craft (we get it from our mom). So I thought it would be so much fun to have a crop party so that we could all craft together. I am still working on the challenge for us, all I know is it has to be something for Valentine's day. I am so lucky to have such a great family. I did a simple invite because I have to do a few of them and I did not want to spend to much time on them. School started back today for me so that takes up a lot of my time. I am working on my BSN. In all honesty I am just ready to be done with school and not have to worry about homework anymore. Be sure to leave a comment if you have any ideas for a challenge for the party(Its my first one). Thanks!!!

Today my mom and I went to hobby lobby and got all kinds of goodies! I had a blast hanging with my mom like always. I am still trying to get all the things I need to craft with. I just started about 3 weeks ago, once I finished school I had a lot of time on my hands and needed something to fill it.

Here is the first card I did using my cricut create. I was just messing around trying to figure out all the features on the machine and came up with this very simple card. I am so excited my new expression should be here sometime this week. I can't wait to play with it. I am so lucky to have a great husband who wants me to be happy and supports everything I do. I finally have my very own craft room and LOVE it. I can't wait to fill it up with all things crafty! I feel like I am turning into my mother more and more everyday. I hope everyone has a great day.
