The 2nd Annual Early Bird Christmas!

It's been about 7 years since the last time I was in a Craft/Trade show. There is something exciting about the prep work and trying to get your long list of projects done. I always seem to do the most under pressure. Not that I like doing things last minute because once I start creating my mind explodes with ideas that I don't have time for and sometimes it's hard to stay focused on the present project. But I still find it fun.

I signed up for 2 shows this year that are 3 weeks apart. So here is to a crazy busy season!

If you are in the Warman, SK area on Saturday, October 25, 2014 come check out the King's Castle 2nd Annual Early Bird Christmas Show and Sale. I will be bringing my Etsy store with many new items in stock including quilts, table runners, Christmas cards, mini albums and other small crafted gift items. There will also be many other vendors at the sale selling clothing, antiques, jewelry, other craft items, garage sale items and so much more. Hope to see you there!

Project Life/ Pocket Page Scrapbooking Supply Organization

So I'm one of those people that thinks I need to have everything that ever comes out for pocket page scrapbooking. I'm trying more and more to get control of it but those 3x4 and 4x6 cards are sooooo darn cute and they just keep coming out with more to temp me. I wish I could say I was scrapbooking as fast as I was collecting them but of course I'm not! While trying to come up with ways to store these  cute little cards I found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest. The first method I grew out really fast which was a great desk top tray to put all the cards, pens and embellishments into. I had made mine out of foam core board. It looked really pretty but didn't really hold that much. So I had seen these Raskog carts from Ikea that everyone was using and thought I really liked that idea but I live 5-6 hours away from Ikea so not really feasible. One day as I was walking through Michaels I came across a simular cart in the clearance section so I snatched it up and this is what it looks like with all my washi tape, 3x4 and 4x6 cards, sequins, wood veneers, 6x6 paper pads and transperancies. I still need to make a few more dividers but I love how it's all organized.

I made the little divided boxes from a design found in the Silhouette Studio store

Together Layout

In a couple of weeks my baby brother is getting married so I thought I would do a layout with a picture they posted on Facebook (ya I totally stole it from their page). They are such a cute couple I couldn't help but be inspired.

Masculine Birthday Card

So yesterday was my husbands birthday and of course it fell on Father's Day this year, which can be quite handy as I'm not much of a party thrower. Unfortunately my plans for a get together with his side of the family didn't go so well as I was planning a BBQ and the wind and rain just wouldn't let up. So we had to postpone it.

This year I was finally on the ball and made him a card. I'd love to get him a real motorcycle for his birthday some day but for now it'll just have to be on a card.
