Hi everyone! Today is Hello Thursday - the day that Provo Craft releases new Cricut cartridges! To celebrate, Robyn at My Pink Stamper is having a fabulous giveaway while we wait for her to get the OK from Provo Craft to post pictures of the new cartridges. I can't wait to see what's new! And what better way to celebrate new stuff than with the chance to win free stuff! Check out her giveaway here.
I just wanted to check in and say that it's going to be a few more days before I have a new project on my blog. I'm in the process of moving and am literally in the middle of moving my craft room - into a much smaller space... :-( It's making me crazy too - I miss my crafting time!
Hopefully I'll "see" you soon! I hope you're having a wonderful day and are staying cool!
Have you ever been to an old fashioned Box Social? Well, I don't know how old fashioned the one that I went to was, but it sure was fun. I joined with other ladies from church at a local park with my decorated box filled with yummy food, and then we played the game where you could choose a box, or steal from someone else. And guess who won the prize for the cutest box? Me! Although honestly, the best prize was that my mom who is visiting from Canada right now was able to come with me.
I had so much fun with this! Very girl power, eh? I used an 8x8 paper mache box and trimmed with cardstock, but my favorite part is definitely the shoe and purse on top. The shoe is Ellen Hutson's design, and the purse came from the cartridge Bags, Tags, Boxes and More. I filled it with a chicken salad sandwich on homemade bread, cucumbers and carrots, a homemade banana oatmeal muffin, Perrier, chocolate covered strawberries, and some peppermint bark. Yum - I wanted to have my box! It was a great way to spend a gorgeous summer evening.

Hello! I am in the process of moving, but I promised myself that if I was a good girl and did some cleaning/moving of stuff that I could take some time to be creative. So I decided to participate in one of my favorite challenges over at Peachy Keen Stamps. As usual, they have a great sketch:
Hello! I have a little something to share with you today that has been sitting in pieces on my desk for about two weeks now. It's been a little crazy around here, and promises to get even crazier as I prepare for family to arrive, and then to move shortly thereafter. Fun times...
Yesterday I felt a little like old mother Hubbard because it had been one of those days where there had been a little too much, "She did this," and "He did that," so kids went to bed EARLY! Which means that I had a little peace and quiet to play in my craft room.
Have I ever mentioned that I like red? I really like red. To look at my projects you would probably never know that, but it's my favorite color. Especially today since it's Canada Day! I haven't been able to celebrate it for a few years, but I'm happy to report that this year I have some Canadian friends with whom I can celebrate the land of my birth.
I just love this little crab from the Create a Critter cartridge! And of coarse Robyn of My Pink Stamper has the perfect sentiment to go along. Have a Crab-u-lous day comes from the set Biggie Punnies which was part of her most recent release. If you would like more information on where to purchase her fabulous stamps, click here.

If life is art, then the art of my life would be filled with my family, faith, good food, and beautiful music. I believe that everyone needs to have a creative outlet, and my medium of choice is paper!
