Blue and beautiful – A PDCC Submission


This week I’m cutting it pretty close again for my  Play Date Cafe submission. At least this time it’s not because I put off making the card until the last minute, but because I procrastinated my blog post instead. Either way, I need  some more motivation. Find out some of the awesome recent motivators I got in my next last-minute post, a V-Day-related one. But for now, my card.

This week I’ve made a birthday card for my future sister-in-law, Lee. Her birthday isn’t until next month sometime. Now there‘s something I didn’t procrastinate!

I lost one of my yellow chipboard O’s while working on this card at home, and found it in the parking lot outside of work today. Weird. Here’s this week’s inspiration picture!

This week’s colors actually influenced a few early Valentine’s Day gifts from Brad. Awesome holiday. Thanks for reading.

My Mama



It was my mom’s birthday yesterday, and of course I missed it completely, what with needing to drive from NEPA to West Virginia and not having a car in the meantime. I still managed to whip something up for her, but she sadly won’t be receiving it until I get back home and do some finishing touches. This is what I came up with. All I have left to do is attach a mounting thingy to the picture frame.

This was just a little side project. I’m currently working on a kick-ass cross-stitching pattern. Prepare to be amazed, internet.

Work Vacations


Woah, sorry it’s been a little while, internet. I guess it’ll take me just a little bit longer to complete the goal on my first Checklist of posting at least twice a week for a month. I’ve been really wrapped up in my new job, so getting this boutique into existence has been pretty hard.

Luckily, this new job has inspired me to work on a really big craft project. I started typing up the introductory post for this project sometime last week or the week before. You’ll be reading it within this week – I promise.

On another note, this job has me traveling, but if the weather doesn’t permit, then I can’t do a whole lot of work. This past Thursday I found myself with a day off, so my boyfriend(who I work with), some other coworkers, and I went on a little field trip to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden. I got to touch a jellyfish and make a little scrapbook page about it! I’ll throw up some low-quality cell-phone pictures from the trip when I get the chance.

My boyfriend and I also got ourselves a new laptop, so I’ll definitely have the opportunity to post throughout the week if we’re out of state. I might just have to lose some sleep to get it done.

So anyway, it’s Sunday and we’ve got some packing to do for the upcoming week, so I’d better be off. Thanks for reading, internet. Don’t lose hope.
