As a stay at home mom, I find thrifty one of the most important things to be! Hopefully through my posts and tutorials, you will be able to craft some heart-felt gifts that your wallet WON'T feel!

You will notice that many of my projects are related to paper's my most favorite thing to do. I also enjoy some simple sewing from time to time and I enjoy "food crafting" as well...mostly cakes. Then there will be the occasional kiddie craft because we do those from time to time as well.

Let's Crop Out Diabetes!!!

Welcome to my blog! I hope you're enjoying hopping around the web and checking out all of the challenges! I'll show you the prize up's a Martha Stewart clear stamp set. The set includes four birds and has a retail value of approximately $10. You never know what else I might toss in to go with it, either!

So...I don't know about the rest of you, but I am SICK, SICK, SICK of snow!! Living in Kentucky, we don't normally get much snow, but God has seen fit to send us more than our share this winter. So here's my challenge to you. Create either a card or a scrapbook layout celebrating spring!! Once you've created your work of heart, please e-mail it to me at ... I will post a pic of EVERYONE's work and then I will put everyone's name in a hat that participates and draw a name out. I will then contact you via e-mail to gather your information so I can get your prize out to you.

Have fun cropping and don't forget the REAL reason we're doing this. Someday, there CAN be a cure!

Ack!! I'm so far behind....

Well...who knew that working retail during the holiday season could be so terribly insane??? One thing is for I do! LOL Other than working so many hours, it wasn't so bad, though. I enjoyed it and will now be a permanent employee of JCPenney. I like it there and am glad to have interaction with the outside world other than doctors and therapists and such when the kids have appointments.

I was going to try and post a short and easy tutorial today but guess what? Somewhere over the holidays, we have totally misplaced the digital camera. Granted, hubby and I both were working 40 hours a week, trying to finish Christmas shopping, dealing with a couple of issues with the kids and helping keep my sister's and brother in law's little ones while he was in critical condition in the hospital. So there really is no telling where the silly camera is at. I do know it was last spotted on Christmas Day. Hopefully we can find it soon. I don't know if I can get the camera on my phone to work properly or not, but if I can, I may just post that tutorial in the next day or two.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and that your new year is filled with happiness and blessings from above!!
