Awesome News!

Today I officially enrolled back into college! So this means, by January I need to have text book funds, I am not there yet. So I am going to be listing like crazy on my etsy shop to attain this goal. I will have a christmas kit real soon. As always, at a great value and free shipping. I will be gathering some items to do some blog candy to celebrate this real soon. This means a lot to me because I am a working single mom, I had to drop out of college when I was pregnant. I have been able to get some classes in over the past few years but last year I had to drop again. So now, I am really pumped!

Tweet mini


I made this pink mini kit for a friend, she wanted to make one but didnt feel creative. So I assembled the book, papers and cover and just included flowers and embellishments. She loved that idea--she got to feel creative by only doing half the work. She loves hot pink and fell in love with this mini.

Birthday Card and Christmas Mini


I have not made many cards but I can easily become additcted! This is a cute owl birthday flagfold card I made today. I am going to try more cards now that I see the finished project.

This is the christmas mini I made for Cafe Mom Scrapbook swap. Its so cute I should have made one for myself! I really love using bazzill chips in my minis. I used the stocking and green and brown ink. The used gold stickles and applied the prima poinstettas and finally used a glass pebbke "Merry Christmas" sticker. I used American Crafts paper. I also used proma flowers but frosted glitter glue overtop with a neat effect. This was a fun project
