Pink and Green Banner

I've been wanting to make one of those cute banners you see everywhere these days, so I finally did it.  I made it to match my craft room.  It took me so much longer than I thought it would and I used a "tub" of glitter (because everything looks better with glitter you know!) and then forgot to take photos before I hung it, of course.  I cut everything on my Cricut and used 2 different K & Company paper pads.

My New Craft Room!

Well, I guess it's not really fair to call it new, but it's definitely new to me.  I just finished painting, sewing curtains and making my lamp shades and I like it so much better now.  Before it was so plain and disorganized and now it's painted my favorite colors, pink and lime green.  My husband built me new shelves and I made curtains to hide all the stuff that I don't want out on display.  I still have some organizing to do as I've still got some messy areas, but it's a lot better than it used to be.  I will be posting more photos soon.

These are the shelves my husband built and they function so much
better than the collage of shelves I used to have.

I know it's a bad photo.  You can't really tell what it looked like.

         The lighting is so much better now and I love my new curtains.             

As you can see, I not the neatest crafter in the world!

Still not extremely neat and organized. 

 This is not all of my paper.  Most of it is hidden behind that curtain. 

I have a slight ribbon addiction, too.

I got this lamp shade from Ikea and cut out the fabric flowers using my Cricut and then ironed them on.  I made 3 of them to go over my work spaces.  You can also see my new curtains in the background and will post photos of my new craft room as soon as I get it all finished.

Disneyworld for Thanksgiving

My last post before Christmas said I was going to post photos of my Christmas decorations and I never got around to doing it.  One of my New Year's resolutions is to work on my blog several times a week.  Here we are a couple of weeks into January and I still haven't been doing that.   I will get on track, though.  So, I thought I would post some photos from our Disneyworld trip instead.  I'm going to be posting some new projects this week for sure.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Here's Hannah and I at the Beach Club Resort at Disneyworld standing in front of a gingerbread carousel.  They make gingerbread and chocolate items for display at Disneyworld every year and they have to start in July.  Anyway, they were all just amazing, but especially the carousel.
I'm so behind right now!  I will try to post some photos of my Christmas decorations and some Christmas jewelry I'm planning on making as last minute gifts today.  We'll see how my plan works out.  I will be more likely to get all of this done if I write it down here.

Disneyworld here we come!!!

We're leaving for Disneyworld tomorrow and I made this clipboard for Hannah.  This year instead of buying an autograph book while we're there, I've cut out a bunch of different tags on the Cricut and will put one on the clipboard to have the characters sign with a marker and then we'll make our own book when we get home.  We'll see how it works out.  I'll post the finished product when I get it made.

This is the front of the clipboard.

This is the back.

Holiday Bling!

Here are some new necklaces I just finished for the holidays and my jewelry party that I'm having on Dec. 9th.  Lots of crystals, lots of sparkle!
