Book-mobile

This is simply beautiful!!  Books are being replaced with iBooks and other technology based print, this is just a very beautiful way to perhaps repurpose the "dated" encyclopedias you have kicking about.



Thanks to Lisa's ingenuity at theshophouse on Etsy.

Have a wonnnnderful day!

I remember back in Junior High, we made these for an event.  We also made Mardi Grad Masks, and they were awesome!  Here's a fabulous tutorial, and PDF template for making Coffee Filter Roses.  Thanks Martha ;)

Monkeys!!!

It's nearing the end of the school year and that nostalgic time of year always gets me thinking about how to say "see you later" instead of goodbyes to all the little kiddies excited for their summer holidays.

I couldn't resist sharing this idea with you - monkeys - how perfect! I'll leave the contents up to your imagination ;)

Thanks Lily ;)

Peg Board - yay!

So I did it! I started scrap booking after 2.5 years of being packed away in boxes!!

And I hated it! I had to keep standing up to get things and my flow just wasn't there. Time to do something about that...

Ha! Power tools! The kiddies were asleep, I was awake (rare miracle) and I got cutting. I didn't wait for Daddy, but we'd talked about it so I just did it with no one around to interrupt me!

Ta daa!!! All done. Now everything I need is at my fingertips!! Now for the time.....

Cute stuff doesn't give me much of that, but he does give me some really great pictures ;)

Otherwise, I've got my Silhouette digital craft cutter up, my files updated on the dedicated craft computer, a printer/scanner/copier hooked up and in working order, and all software up to date. I can now move the computer down to the Craft Studio without wifi. I'll have to old school it now with the good ole USB stick from now on :)
