Scrapping around the house

We have this little space between our downstairs bathroom and my scraproom and I found a frame set for a steal of a deal ($2) at a rummage sale quite a while back so Jeff hung the frames for me a couple weeks ago and this weekend I finally got them filled.

It is my spin on the "Live, Laugh, Love" decorations you see all the time. I used "Lucky Me" paper by Little Yellow Bicycle.

A couple other altered art projects I have done that I have in my scraproom are my initials that I covered in "Wildflower" paper from K&Co and my desk organizer. I found a clear organizer at Staples and then cut Que Sera Sera paper (also from K&Co) to fit around the organizer.

Product Testing

It is important of course to check your work before you give it to others...just like when you are cooking you always taste it before sharing with guests. So being the helpful puppy that he is, Chimmy went to work to make sure Jill's scarf was both warm and comfy. I think it passed the test. (and I finished it Saturday just in time for the ice skating parting.)

I was also able to get a couple more pairs of cuffs done for my mom and Sarah as well, now to make a pair for myself!

What I Want 3.0

This past weekend Jenny hosted our 3rd annual "What I Want" party. In hopes of getting my goal board done that night I dug through my scrap stash the night before to see what I could find that would fit for what is going to be an awesome year! And low and behold I stumbled across my "Lucky Me" paper - how fitting. So with the help of my Cricut I cut a bunch of stuff out to use on my board and packed it up for the party. Jenny of course served her yummy punch and sausage cups mmmmm! And I was able to knock my board out. Here's how it ended up. I am especially excited about the space I made for things I am grateful for that I can add throughout the year (your bottom right).

And hopefully I will see some of you girls before next year!

Comfy Cuffs

It is only day 2 of 2011 and I already knocked out my first knitting project of the year! These comfy cuffs only took me two days and I am wearing them right now as I type. Jeff gave me an early birthday present which was a full set of knitting needles so I put them straight to use. Look for pink and purple versions coming soon!
