I am back!!

It has been too long since my last post .  I really need to get better at posting .  I don’t know why it takes me such a long time between posts.  I have been keeping myself pretty busy though.  With us moving back to the states, it has taken me some time to get settled into our new house.  Luckily for me, the house that we found has a big office.  So I get to have my craft room back.  Yay for me and my craft room!  Having my craft room has helped me with my motivation and making cards and crafts.

So I have been working on cards and Magnets.  Here are some pictures of the cards that I have made.

NEW PRETTY Composition Book!!

NEW PRETTY Composition Book

So I sent my daughter to school with her NEW Composition Book and it was a hit! I guess all of her friends were asking her where I bought them at and Crystina said well, My mom actually decorated it herself! Even her teacher asked her where she got her composition book from! I am pretty excited with the reaction of the book brought so I decided to make another one. Actually I had already started on two of them but I finished one today.

Here is a picture of my second creation:

Please let me know what you think of my new book??

One Man’s Trash is My Treasure!

So I went to the Thrift Store today to drop off some donations and help out some. I didn’t go to buy anything so I wasn’t looking for anything. While helping out I saw these cute little

jars. I think they are Apothecary Jars. I fell in love with them!  Like they say “One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure”

In my case,  “Woman’s” Treasure!!

So what do you think about my treasures? I love the colors of them. I love that they are really small. I have to find something to do with them. When I do I will post some pictures to show you all. It always makes me so happy to see beautiful things. Right now I have so many beautiful things in my office that when I walk in I feel happy! I want to feel that way every time I walk in my home. That is my goal, to make my home happy looking. Sometimes when I am feeling down I go to the flower shops here in my town and just walk around for 30 min. Believe it or not it make’s a big difference in my mood and makes me very happy. Seeing all those beautiful flowers, all the different colors, different types of flowers.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you stop by again!!

10 Year Anniversary Card

Good Afternoon!

Recently my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. It makes me very very happy to say that! We have been through so much together in the past 11 years. I think we make a great team! We both work great together. My husband is so good to me, sometimes I think to myself that I am one lucky girl. He is more then my husband, he is my best friend! He has been my best friend since the day I met him. So of course I made him a special anniversary card for him. See the great thing about my cards is that they are one of a kind!

Here it is….

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you stop by again another time!

New PRETTY Composition Book

Hey there again. I have been working on this composition book for my daughter for a while now and just finished. My little girl is a girly girl so I decided to go with the colors red, pink, and light blue. Next year she will be in 4th grade. WOW, I can’t believe my little girl will be a 4th grader next year. Here in Germany the kids go to middle school when there in 4th grade. I am not happy about it but it is what it is…

So I am happy to share what I made for my angle and I hope you like it as much as she does….

Decorated Gift Bags

Good Afternoon!

I have been working on making gift bags. The one I made was very easy. I wanted to attach some rossetti paper flowers that I learned to make but I didn’t because I couldn’t find a good place to put them at. All I did was put some scrap paper that I bought on a plain paper gift bag and added some ribbon on the top of the bag. I really enjoy making plain looking things look beautiful and I think the bag looks very pretty. So here it is..

So that’s my decorated bag. I am planing on making more and will be showing you what I come up with. I really would like to know what you think of it. It really was simple to make. If you have scrap paper laying around like I do and have plain paper gift bags you can do this!! Pretty ribbon can make anything beautiful!!

Thank You For Stopping By and I hope you come again!

Father’s Day

Hello!

How was your Father’s Day? I hope all of you had the chance to spend time with the awesome dads in your life. My family and I had a relaxing day. I let my husband sleep in on father’s day so I am sure he liked that. Then we watched a movie as a family. It was a very quiet day.

I have been feeling like a bad wife because I haven’t been buying anything for my husband for the special holiday’s that come up. Also

a bad daughter because I haven’t sent any father’s day cards…. 😦  See the thing is, is that I do make the cards

I just don’t send them. I am really bad at sending them. So I still have my dad’s father’s day card and father in-law’s card in my craft room. I really need to send them

Like today! I took some pictures of the father’s day card I made for my husband and for my father in law. I hope you like what you see…

Very simple Father’s Day Card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come and visit me again!
