It's not crafty in the least but I hope to see you there!

It's been a while

Wow, it's been nearly a year since I last updated this blog. Things happen and times change and it hasn't been a priority. I think of this as a crafty blog and I honestly haven't done anything crafty since the last post.

In the mean time, I lost over 50 pounds, started a new position at work, became a Chapter Advisor to my sorority's chapter at NCSU, started running (I KNOW!!!) and have been trying to work through some stomach issues, possibly a gluten intolerance. After all that's gone on, I'm just not sure this blog is the right forum to talk about me, today and everything that's going on.

I think it's time to move to a new home, one that's a better fit. I hope you'll join me there!

Tuesday Hoperoo

Please don't tell me how many days are left until Christmas and please don;t remind me that I agreed to make 12 dozen pizelles for a cookie exchange Saturday. For those of you who don;t know, pizelles are awesome delicious Italian waffle cookies that are made 2, yes 2 at a time with a pizelle maker. I'd better get cooking!

But I do have a minute to show you a little something for this week's hop. We were tasked with using black, green and white with an older stamp. Oh, wait, did you see Nina's makings? Go on back if you didn't. I'll wait... toodely doo.. OK, I unfortunately didn't have a chance to make something new for this week, but I do have something that is still awesome.

It's the Friends of Oz stamp! Say it with me! AWWWWWWW.... So cute! As you can see, I have green, black and white all represented here. WOO HOO! You love this, so go get it for... 45% off! Yes! 45% off! Run, don't walk and get you one!

Well, that's all for me! Go see Shannon and her spectacular creation!

Time to HOP!

Hello happy hoppers! I hope you're enjoying the trip so far! Hopefully you've arrived here from the QKD blog, if not, go on back over there and see what's going on!

We not only had a fantastic sketch to use this week but new stamps as well!! I got to play with Dark Christmas, which I just ADORE!

Geee.... this makes me SO happy! I colored my image with my Copics to match this awesome new Basic Grey paper. Then I added a few sticky sparkles from my stash. I think this is my favorite card that I've made in a long time... You likey, go on over to the store and get one for yourself! AND it's on SALE!! Woo Hoo!
That;s all for me! Go see Shannon and her awesome creation!!

Royal Kat Tuesday Blog Hop!

Did you have a fantastic Thanksgiving? I know I did! We had a great trip up north and did a little gambling, a little shopping AND I had tickets to see Bret Michaels on my birthday! Pretty Sweet! Now it's back to work AND working out for a few weeks until Christmas!

So, did you start at the beginning of the hop? If not, head on back and see what Nina made. As for me, I'm super excited to show off some new stamps! I got to play with Eskimo kisses this month and I think they are just ADORABLE! We had a sketch challenge this week and here's what I made.

I pulled out the cuttlebug and everything this week. :) I colored the Eskimos with my Copics to match some Basic Grey paper that I had from last season. I also embossed some snowflakes as a background, hey, Eskimos need snow, right??

Alrighty, that's all for me! Head on over and see Shannon and her awesomeness!

Tuesday Blog Hop!

Gack! Tuesday already! I hope you had a fantastic time this weekend at the birthday celebration! Did you submit your entries for the $50 in free rubbah??? FREE RUBBER! How can you resist? Any who, back to your regularly scheduled hop. Am I your second hop? I should be! if not, go see what Nina made for you.

As for me, I had to make another project with my Sagittarius stamp. He is awesomely FANTASTIC!

I colored him with Copics to match that delicious designer paper and glued it to a Miller Lite coaster I took from a restaurant a while ago. :) I roughed up the edges with a nail file and added a ribbon so he can hang from a package or a super cool holiday tree.

I know you want him, so get you to the store and get him for your very own, but in the mean time, you're done with me, so head on over to the Dark Ink Sorority and see what she has for you!

The party's over...

Can you believe it? The QKD party is over. :( Well, I guess there isn't anything left to do but clean up the mess.. Since we had such an awesome party, you know there is a TON if glitter to pick up. As my husband says, glitter is the herpes of the craft world...

I digress, and back to business, there is a SPECTACULAR give away up on the Queen Kat Blog $50 in QKD merchandise! can you imagine???!!! So, all you have to do is whip something up using a kitty image and add some bling! Then go to the blog and link yours to the site! Who knows, you might win some dough!

Here's what I did with mine...

I used Kitsune Chan for mine and colored her to match the vaguely Asian inspired designer paper. Oranges and pink and some pretty glittery scroll chipboard. And since thanks are in order for the awesome party, she thanks you a bunch!

Now don't forget to make yours and post by Monday at 10am MST!
Good Luck!
