Blogs, Cards, Challenges Oh My..........

Hey there everyone.  Happy Saturday!  It's a rainy one here in Texas.  I am planning to work on some cards here in a bit hopefully....  But I have a question for all of you crafty peeps, do any of you ever get a little over whelmed with all the challenges, swaps, ect... out here on the web?  I really want to get to where one project can be appropriate for more than just one challenge ect.  So how do all you long time crafter's handle this?   I would love hear from you on this subject.  

And now for a little SURPRISE, I am planning on giving some blog candy away when I hit 25 followers.  So I am hoping you'll pass the word and get your other crafty friends to come visit me and if they are so inclined become a follower. But to be eligible a follower must follow the blog from the "join this site"  button on the blog.  Need to get 12 more followers and then there will be some blog candy to give a way.  Will post a picture of the Blog Candy soon.  All the followers names will be put into a hat and my hubby will pick the Winner.  So if you just pop in once in a while you may want to follow for a chance to win.  And please be courteous and do not become a follower of the blog unless you truly will follow.....I would not do this to you and I will reciprocate the love back to your blog when you follow me.  So tell your other crafty friends with blogs so we can have some Fun with a Give-a-way, Yay!!!

OK I am off to get into something crafty.................

Until next time.
Have a great Weekend.....................

My little Crafting Area

Evening everyone.  I finally got my craft area in shape enough that I felt it was OK to show.  My area for crafting and soaping is in my kitchen.  So here are the pictures.  Please tell me what you and think and I would love to see your space too.  (The pull out counter actually extends a lot further but it would not fit in picture if I had it all the way out.)

 Alright, I shared with you, now it's your turn.......LOL :)  Or just leave me a comment, Love hearing from everyone.

Until next time,

Happy Monday

HAPPY MONDAY everyone!   Boy, have I been busy the past 4-5 days.  I did attend the Creating Keepsakes Convention in San Marcos, TX on Friday.  A smaller convention but still a lot to see and buy.  I did a couple Make & Takes.  One was at the Heartfelt Creations booth with Jennifer as the instructor. She was super sweet and it was a lot of fun chatting with her.  We made a card with a dimensional flower and dies on it, will be posting pics later today hopefully.  And I also made a pendant at the Craft Fantastic Booth.  I got lots of goodies and had a fun time browsing, shopping and getting lots of inspiration with my friend, Liz.  And I wanted to thank her for hooking up with me before her classes started Friday afternoon.  All in all if was fun, and I will post  picture of my stash I got soon.  

Now before I forget, I promised to post some pics of my crafty area.........well I am in the middle of re-doing where I want all my stuff to be kept, to hopefully make it more user friendly, will see.  So please be patient with me as I am re-arranging.  Rest assured I will as promised post pictures soon.

Well that's all I have right now.  Have a great start to your week.  Off to put my Soap Booth items back in the attic until the next show in a month.  Will post of pic of my table later too, if it turned out, Hubby said pic was washed  out a bit from it being soooo sunny Yesterday,oh well...............

Until Next Time.....................

I'm going to a Convention.

Hi everyone, sorry for being a little quiet the past few days.  Pet Sitting and other family stuff has been keeping me a bit busy.  I have to tell you all that this Friday, Sept. 21st, I am going to the Creating Keepsakes Convention, WOOHOO!  To say I'm excited is an understatement.  I have only been to one other about 6 years ago.  I know I will not be sleeping Thursday night,just like a kid the night before Christmas.  I will try to get some pictures if they allow it that is.  This an early birthday present from my hubby for me to have a whole day all to my self, Yippee. 

I made some cards yesterday afternoon for a swap I am in over on Split Coast Stampers.  But you'll have to pop over to my cards page for a peak and all the info. 

Thanks for Visiting...........

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!!  Here's wishing you all a safe and hopefully fun weekend.  I have to work this weekend Pet Sitting, but I love my job so it's not really work to me.  We do have a little relaxation planned for late tonight.  We are going to hear a friends band at a local pub.  Hopefully I can get a short nap in later today, because I will be falling asleep by the time they come on otherwise......LOL! I am the early to bed, early to rise kinda gal!  Hubby is out helping Friends move now so he will be ready for a snooze when he gets back later this afternoon I'm sure.  Any way, Just wanted to pop by and say Hi.  Be safe and enjoy your weekend!
