My New Addition

Hello Everyone,
TGIF! For those of you that are die hard scrapper you will appreciate this. A few weeks back I had a couple of scrappers over my house. At the time I did not realize the importance to having a proper work space and tools. After my guess left I was experiencing an enormous amount of pain through my back and neck area due to crafting that weekend. Since then it has been a couple of weeks in between the massages and pain medication I am finally getting back to normal.

But the story does not end there. A couple of years ago I had been introduced to the Scrap'n Easel. To be honest I was a little sceptical and opted out not to buy it (only because I thought it was too costly).Well who knew years later that I would regret that decision. I was starting to see it advertised more and more in the scrapping magazines. Well I told my hubby about it he said that I should maybe look into purchasing one if it will help relieve any future neck pain. But I was still on the fence. Weeks have come and gone. Then wouldn't you know it there is a knock at  the door and it's the  FEDEX. guy. I get a package that is addressed to my hubby. I was thinking it was for his work so I just put it aside. He then comes home and I told him there was a package for him and he proceeded to opens it. As I was watched him open the box and he pulls out what looks like a black mat. I said "hey that looks familiar". He said it should it's for you! I screamed of course realizing that it was the Scrap'n Easel. It was a beautiful thing! So now I introduce the must have tool. Thanks honey for this wonderful gift!

Strong Heart

Hi Everyone,
Well we are almost there, before you know it the weekend will be here. Okay so today's post is about a very special card. My adorable nephew texted me yesterday afternoon wanting to come by and make a card for his girlfriends' mother who is going to have surgery. He wanted something that would put a smile on her face. Because we all know that having any type of surgery can be stressful. Not only for person that is having it but for the family as a whole. Alice I hope your mother gets the attention that she needs health wise and that you know how much she is loved. And David I could not be more proud to call you family and that you can be rough around the edges at time but your heart is always in the right place. Thank you (David) for allowing me to post your creation.

It's all about the color Pink!

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all are having a great work week and enjoying this beautiful weather (that is for those that are in California).
Like most of us crafters' we tend to hoard every last piece of scrap paper. I am not sure why we do it. It's not like there is mass shortage of paper...hehehehe. Well some time back I received some 8x8 paper from a fellow scrapper. Although I was grateful to get such scrapping goodies I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. And in the middle of the night it came to me. So I got up out of bed and jotted down my thoughts and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it.
