Some Fun!

Ok, so today wasn't a great day ... LOL ... it started off really well at work and then the day just seemed to snowball getting busier and busier!  I felt exhausted and just wanted to sleep ... LOL ... but that didn't happen!  I had physio tonight and it consisted of me getting needled ... 8 along my spine!!  Crazy I tell you!  So we will definitely have to see sore I'm tomorrow!

Well that didn't stop me ... I pulled over my table full of craft supplies and got to work!  I've been looking at Sheryl Driver's card with the small stripes and I adapted it to me!  I pulled out the Artiste cartridge and put it to a test drive tonight ... LOL

I'll post a picture of the card tomorrow!  I don't have the best lighting for taking pictures at night ... LOL

Artiste in August!

Ok, so I've been reading about how everyone is doing month long card making or month long creating something from the Art Philosophy cartridge or Artiste cartridge, so I'm going to jump on board and do this too!  I can't wait cause I decided that I'm going to create something from the Artiste cartridge and showcase it each day!

I hope you will follow along and learn just how versatile this cartridge really is!  You'll fall in love with it too!  I can't wait to get started!  Thank goodness I only have a few days until the beginning of August!

To get you seeing just want can be made, here is a link to the online handbook for Artiste!

CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Everything that I make between August 1st and August 17th will be on display at my Open House, so be sure to come over and check it all out!

Convetion was Awesome!

So I've had a couple days to unwind from the hustle and bustle of convention in Dallas Texas!  It was amazing!  This way my first trip anywhere and to go to a convention that housed 1200 ladies and men ... insane I tell you!  The excitement was so out there that you couldn't not have a great time!

Convention!! 4 More Days!!

So it is hard to believe that what started last August, is about to become a reality!  I purchased my Convention ticket back in August not knowing for sure if I was going to be able to actually attend or not.  It wasn't until after March that I knew for sure that it was a possibility.  I just had to swing accommodations and the flight!  Well, that is all swung and I will be leaving for Dallas Texas in 4 short days!

It's been a roller coaster ride just getting to this point, but you know what ... I'm stronger for it!  I started this year off saying that 2012 was going to be our year and so far it has been!  It's half over and already what we've done is great!

We had some setbacks, but then everyone does, but I think we are moving forward in a very nice path.  It will be great when the financing comes back for the vehicle we have to replace because of an accident.  We won't go there ... I'm still sore about losing my car :(  I loved that car!  If we were still driving that car, I never would have gone looking at anything close to what I'm going to be getting ... I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing yet ... but I know that my car will be missed!  It was good to us that car!

So, off topic I went ... LOL ... I'm packing my things and getting ready to take my second plane ride in my life!  Not only will I get 3 days of fun scrapbooking and meeting new people, but I'm going to get to meet some people that I technically work with!  I'm in Canada and they are in Dallas ... LOL ... so much fun that is going to be!  Then all the sights I'm going to get to see as well!  I can't wait!

This is going to be the best trip ever!!
