Recap of 2011

This might be the last post for 2011. So with that being said I wanted to recap. I got my cricut expression and gypsy on christmas 2010. I then started a blog in Jan. 2011. I cant believe its been almost a year. Here is just a few things I made in 2011.

*Entered this card in the cooking with Cricut challenge* you can find them HERE orginal card post for this card can be found HERE


 I also made a video and have a youtube channel. I havent figured out everything about making videos for youtube when it comes to set up and lighting but one day I will. Here is my video.



I also wanted to thank all my followers who have stopped by my blog and commented along the way. I also wanted to say I had so much fun at the Cricut Cirlce event the CHA road trip over the summer. It was a blast. I cant wait till 2012 and see what crafty things I can make. Hope everyone has a wonderful last couple of days of 2011 and a wonderful New Year. :) Be safe

My girls have been playing non stop since they opened their gifts. Santa was very nice to them this year and got them each one thing they asked for. They even got new bikes.(since they out grow their old ones over the summer).

So merry christmas again.

Cardz TV Design Team Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cardz Tv Design Team Christmas Blog Hop. The hope will be for the whole weekend (Dec 17-18) You will want to make sure you start at the begin of the hop at Cardz Tv. This hop is going to be amazing. Am so happy to be on this wonderful team. I also wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone and thank you for hopping along with us.

For my project I made treat bags for my oldest daughters 1st grade class. This was the 1st time ever making something for her to take to school. I had so much fun making them and the best thing is the kids in her class loved them and so did my girls.
For the treat bags I used Cardz Tv stamp set "Holly Jolly" and I used the Create a Critter cricut cartridge. I did a play on words because the saying is "Have a holly jolly christmas" and the candy cane is a jolly rancher candy cane. :). Which is really good. Am just saying.
*Update- I have been reading my lovely comments and thank you all for the kind words. :) I have had a few people ask a couple questions. 1. The reindeer is on page 73 in the create a critter hand book. The tree is also in create a critter on page 33. (I hope that helps) and 2. The white back ground is cut from Cricut Craft Room Basic shapes or if you have the Imagine you can find it there in the preloaded shapes. I have both so either way will work. But for this project I used Cricut Craft Room. If you are new and find that Cricut Craft Room is hard to use check out this site Cricut Craft Room Blog. It really did help me.

I hope you are having fun on the hop.

Please be sure to check out  Mary’s blog(Cardz Tv) because she will be giving away Cricut Seasonal cartridge Gingerbread and Cardz TV Holly Jolly Stamp set for blog candy. Also Lynn (Sheree) has generously sponsored the hop with an adorable North Pole Collection paper kit from Crate Paper! Thank you so much Lynn! Thank you to both of you for these wonderful items. In order to win leave a comment at each design team members blog. :)
Here is the order list for the hop:

Please Forgive me

Wow I havent posted on here since thanksgiving. :( Am so sorry. I have been off my a game since around that time. I have things ready to cut on my gypsy just need to get them cut out. Tomorrow is a new day and I really do hope to have some new things to post this coming week. 
I just wish my mojo would come back so I can create.

I must add that today weather isnt helping. I mean I live in Ohio and its almost 60 degrees in December. Really how wonderful is that. I dont like the cold weather. I quess having many years of really cold weather will do that. I also know that we are going to have a wicked winter because of the weather patterns now. Trust me come Jan I will be mad and miserable because of the cold, but today I will take the weather and just run with it. I dont want to think about cold and snow but because of the weather it doesnt seem like christmas time. I am having a hard time with getting ready for christmas. If it wasnt for my kids I would just skip it. Just Kidding.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know that am ready for monday to be here since my girls have done nothing but fight this weekend. Until next time. :)
