WOW It's been a while

I have been away from my blog for way too long.

I never stopped crafting or scrapbooking, I just stopped blogging.

Well now I am back!!!

I do plan to get my creations up to date but there is something I need to share.

While this page has always been about crafting and creating but also my LOVE and passion for doing it! November 30, 2015 I became a widow. I was 32 years and I was 22 weeks pregnant with our second son. It been a nightmare, a roller coaster of emotions but certainly a learning experience. I know that when tragedy strikes everyone reacts differently and "turns to" different things to cope. Well I turned to my boys (taking daily selfies), using Facebook as my personal journal, and to crafting and scrapbooking. I have been "stretching" my talents out of my comfort zone to try and experience new things with my crafts.

 And while this blog is for my crafts and my crafting business, it is also a personal outlet for my emotions as I navigate my way as a solo parent to my two amazing boys.

As always, I truly appreciate all you love and support

Water Party

Makenna is turning 4 and she is having a water games birthday party. Makenna picked out the cutest invitations that had flip flops with hawaiian flowers and the colors lime green, yellow, orange, and pink. The invitations were the perfect guide to make the two banners and centerpiece for the birthday party.

First, I made a flip flop banner for hanging pictures of Makenna from this year. I used all the colors and added hawaiian flowers to tie it all together. There are 12 flip flops for hanging pictures.

Dino Mite Dinosaur Birthday Banner- FOR SALE

It was quiet in the house which doesn't happen often (the toddler was asleep on the floor next to me). so I decided design and create a dinosaur birthday banner. I wish I could throw a birthday party for Jack every four months then I would be able to use all my ideas for birthday parties. I think a great birthday party theme for a boy or girl is Dino Mite Dinosaur Party. The ideas are filling my head as I type. So I made this birthday banner. '

It's for sale! I can add the age to the volcano. If you are interested just email me. Also I can make centerpieces, other banners, cupcake toppers, etc. to go with the banner.

Train Birthday Banner

I decided to work on some different banners and experiment with making Toy Story characters since I think that is what we are doing for Jack's 3rd birthday. Yes I know his birthday is 9 months away but it's summer and I need something to do.

I have put together a train "Happy Birthday" banner in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I used metallic silver for the bottom of the box cars and the flatbed. I plan to add the Toy Story to each box car (Ham, Aliens, Bo, Slinky, Rex, Zurg, Bullseye, Mr. Potato Head, Mrs. Potato Head, Jessie, Woody, Buzz, Lotso)

 ****I can make it any colors and add any characters. *****

I can add a picture of your kid in the window of the train!

Will add the age to the empty flatbed.
