update ...

Hi!  I'm still here ...  But summer is so busy, isn't it?  With my 3 kids all with different schedules, I don't have a huge chunk of time to craft!  Plus I'm so tired by the time it's 10 pm, sometimes earlier, that I just go to sleep!  At least the kiddies are having fun.  Today, my daughter is going to the pool with her summer school math class!  Yeah, some how the teachers have devised a way to learn about math in the pool.  My daughter loves to swim so hopefully she's enjoying the pool at her new school.

My son is also at the same summer school and his class is going on a bowling field trip today!  He is lucky.  His class is going on some field trip every Friday.

And even my youngest one is having a Field Day at his preschool.  He loves to run around.  So I have about an hour or so everyday before I have to pick up or drop off some one at school.  Next year, I gotta get them all on a similar drop off/pick up schedule. 

I have nothing crafty to share today but thought I would post a picture my youngest one drew.

One of his preschool teachers taught him how to draw Angry Birds.  So he came home from school and showed us too!  He loves to draw! 

It's been a funny summer here with lots of rain.  Today is sunny though so hopefully we'll have a good weekend too.  Thanks so much for reading and I'll be back soon!

What cute birds!!! And so recognizable, that's impressive. Love their flying lines! :) Finally this summer seems less busy since both my kids are finally at the same place! And we could all sleep in a little this week. Maybe next week won't seem as easy getting everybody ready earlier. Can't imagine all your driving, hopefully the traffic is not too bad.
They are so cute....
I know this month June the weather has been a bit iffy... We haven't had stormy rain it's mostly over cast, cloudy kind, exceptional for today weather has been pretty awesome I had a chance to work in my yard today..... Hope it stays nice all weekend too....

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
